Do you have a source if that is true I would looking at the news for it. Details like that should come out quickly. Only thing I could find were the names of the two women.
Marissa Janae Johnson
Mara Jacqeline Willaford

I did dig around. I looked at MSNBC, NPR, Washington Post, and the Daily Kos, and the narrative that seems most consistent is that Johnson is a cofounder of a Seattle chapter of Black Lives Matter. I found no indication that she was a Palin supporter outside the Daily Kos, though I did find buzzing that this chapter is accused of having acted alone. That doesn't, however, really change the dynamic for how Sanders should've responded at the time (which stood at the heart of my analysis), because removing them from the stage would've only played against Sanders whether the women in question were GOP supporters, rogue actors claiming to represent Black Lives Matter, or members in good standing of the movement.

Personally I'd like better sources but it makes you think and start looking....

There have been other things that have been posted by Ring of Fire and various other groups that have made this issue more complicated.

Like I said Investigate this stuff people....

These are sources I've never heard of (and so wouldn't have known to check), but thanks for the tip regardless.

Considering that bish is wearing a "white tears" shirt, I can bet you she is 100% tumblr user. If she even identifies as a she at all and not some ridiculous "demigirl magigender" bs. Either way, yeah, she probably has a matching shirt that says "male tears".

unrelated side note: thanks cr for getting rid of the spambot

I am just really curious that people who would seem to have similar goals would make protests during Bernie Sanders rather than at the Republican debates....
It doesn't make very good sense to me....

The funny thing is, she still doesn't matter after doing dumb crap like this. Still a nobody.

"white tears" came from Twitter, and is used mostly on Twitter. Honestly I never even see people like this on Tumblr (and even Twitter most of the time tbh) unless you're actively looking for them.

I really couldn't see much incentive for the people hosting a GOP event to avoid grabbing these activists by their collars and booting them out of the venue. Sanders has the incentives to avoid building a divide between himself and Black Lives Matter that I explained earlier. The GOP is a horse of a completely different colour. It's a totally different dynamic between them and that movement.

Why him? I barely ever follow American politics, and I know for a fact that of all politicians you could be harassing about this, Bernie Sanders is right near the bottom of that list. Ridiculous.

they don't, there is more money in our division. there are also many black people who instead of equality want to become the new dominate power, the oppressed becoming the oppressors. also, much of their facts about the salve trade and the American Civil Wat comes from completely ignoring many facts in order to maintain the victim image so that they don't have to take responsibility for their actions. not all black people are like this, just the ones who wear Tees with the words "I Drink White People's Tears".

So out of all the presidential candidates campaigns to hijack people from the BLM chose Bernie Sanders who's been an advocate for Civil Rights long since before they were even born. LOGIC.
