Consider Democratic candidate, Martin O’Malley, TOAST! He had the audacity to claim that “all lives matter”, and then followed that up with “white lives matter”! The Daily Caller has the story:
Former Maryland Gov. and Democratic Party presidential candidate Martin O’Malley, along with fellow candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, were shouted off stage at the Netroots Nation conference in Phoenix, Ariz., Saturday. O’Malley’s offense was saying, “Black lives matter, white lives matter, all lives matter.”
O’Malley has now apologized for including “white lives matter, all lives matter” in his statement.
The Black Lives Matter movement on the extreme progressive left does not tolerate inclusion of all lives, or any other lives when it comes to mattering.
Appearing on the Internet based “This Week In Blackness,” or TWiB Nation, host L. Joy Williams excoriated O’Malley for his insensitivity for including “white lives” and “all lives” in his statement. The former governor did not repeat the phrases, he referred to them as “those other two phrases.”
“I want to ask something specifically,” Williams said, “Towards the end, in your explanation, you said the phrase ‘all lives matter,’ you said the phrase ‘white lives matter.’ But I want to ask you, do you understand the difference in responding in that conversation, in that context, with ‘all lives matter’ or ‘white lives matter’ when we’re specifically talking about black death, that is not all inclusive.”
O’Malley responded, “I certainly do and, in fact, I believe what I first said was that ‘black lives matter’ before those other two phrases. And when I said those other two phrases I meant no disrespect to the point, which I understand, that black lives matter is making.”
No wonder the natives were restless! Martin O’Malley’s run for the Presidency is effectively OVER! He may have apologized, but it is too late. The cat is out of the bag! He has revealed his Inner Racist, and his aura of White Privilege is burning white hot around him! How dare he say “white lives matter”!
As I have said before, in the Kathryn Steinle matter, we must not let ourselves be fooled into treating a white murder victim in the same manner we treat Black murder victims. If white lives matter, too, then everybody’s life is equally valuable, and there would be no reason to even say, Black lives matter. That would be the very essence of White Privilege!
Yours very truly,

FootNote: The Image is from the 1932 film, The Island of Lost Souls, which Wiki notes:
is a 1932 American science fiction horror film starring Charles Laughton, Richard Arlen, Leila Hyams, Bela Lugosi and Kathleen Burke as the Panther Woman. The film was directed by Erle C. Kenton and produced by Paramount Picturesfrom a script co-written by science fiction legend Philip Wylie, the movie was the first film adaptation of the H. G. Wells novel The Island of Dr. Moreau, published in 1896. Both book and movie are about an obsessed scientist who is secretly conducting surgical experiments on animals on a remote island.
The film is the source of the saying “The natives are restless tonight.” The actual dialogue is as follows:
Ruth Thomas (hearing chanting): “What’s that?”
Dr. Moreau: “The natives, they have a curious ceremony. Mr. Parker has witnessed it. “
Ruth Thomas: “Tell us about it, Edward. “
Edward Parker: “Oh, it’s… it’s nothing. “
Dr. Moreau: “They are restless tonight.”
