Gutfeld: Cowardly left sanction 'Black Lives Matter' bullies

So Hillary had a meeting with "Black Lives Matter." It was intense, or perhaps a conference room.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I genuinely want to know, you and your family have been in no uncertain way, partially responsible for this. More than most.

Now that you understand the consequences, what in your heart has changed that's going to change the direction of this country?

HILLARY CLINTON, D-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: I can only tell you that I feel very committed to and responsible for doing whatever I can. I -- your analysis is totally fair.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

It's like an angry tour guide. So after the activist objected to her giving them helpful advice, she had enough.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I stand here in your space and say it as respectfully as I can, but if you don't tell black people what we need to do, then we won't tell you all what you need to do.

CLINTON: Well, if that --

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The conversation push back --

CLINTON: OK. I respectfully -- if that is your position, then I will talk only to white people about how we are going to deal.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: That's not what I mean.

CLINTON: With the very real problems.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: That's not what I mean.

CLINTON: I don't believe you change hearts. I believe you change laws, you allocation of resources, you change the way systems operate.

Someone get me a medic. This is the first time I actually sympathize with Hillary. Maybe if more people saw that, they'd like her more. Doubtful.

But the reason for this meeting was because "BLM" had been on the war path. So Hillary chose to meet them separately, rather than risk this.

MARTIN O'MALLEY, D-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: Black lives matter. White lives matter. All lives matter.

CROWD: Boo.

BERNIE SANDERS, D-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: OK. OK.

(CROSSTALK)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Give her a check (ph) or we are shutting this event down now.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: If you do not listen to her your event will shut down right now, right now.

That's not discourse. It's demand. It's based on the idea that empathy cannot cross ethnic lines. Never to be bridged by white people, for the advice given is tainted by evil white privilege.

The cowards of the left resist pointing out that this is sanctioned bullying, a suspension of civility in favor of intimidation. Perhaps they expect incivility from "BLM," which to me is racist. Allowing their rudeness means you think they can't handle manners.

And while few do listen to polite protesters, who can stand loud jerks? I know from personal experience around Brian.

Hillary's response revealed division's ultimate impasse. Why should whites talk to you if you think whites are all bad? Enlistment rests on the shoulders of brave but persuasive voices, those who win converts and create conversations. It's something an activist might seek unless it's not what they really want. If the goal is not to improve, but implode the system, then words are just warm ups to flames.
