It’s a shame the mainstream media isn’t intellectually honest and exists solely to protect the liberal ideology. Because if something like this happened to a Republican presidential candidate at a Tea Party rally, I’m sure it would be more newsy.
O’Malley responded: “Black lives matter. White lives matter. All lives matter.”
The demonstrators, who were mostly black, responded by booing him and shouting him down.
Later that day, O’Malley apologized for using the phrase in that context if it was perceived that he was minimizing the importance of blacks killed by police.
“I meant no disrespect,” O’Malley said in an interview on This Week in Blackness, a digital show. “That was a mistake on my part and I meant no disrespect. I did not mean to be insensitive in any way or communicate that I did not understand the tremendous passion, commitment and feeling and depth of feeling that all of us should be attaching to this issue.”
O'Malley gaffes with this crowd: "Black lives matter, white lives matter, all lives matter." Huge groans and boos. #NN15

The Democrat Party has gotten so extreme, that saying “all lives matter” is considered problematic and a gaffe. This is your new Democrat Party. Where only some lives matter.
