A female progressive candidate in the Georgia gubernatorial race was shouted down by Black Lives Matter during her speech at Netroots Nation in Atlanta over the weekend — for daring to run against another female candiate, who happens to be black.
Netroots Nation is the largest annual conference for progressives, and took place this year from the 10-13th of August.
Stacey Evans, a member of the Georgia House of Representatives elected in 2010, grew up poor in rural northwest Georgia — the daughter of a teenage mother. Her bio says that “by the time I was 18, I lived in 16 different trailers, apartments, or houses. It was the HOPE scholarship that changed everything. It allowed me to be the first in my family to go to college and graduate the University of Georgia.”
Despite her overwhelmingly progressive views and credentials, protesters rudely stood up and turned their backs to the stage as she began to speak.

The hecklers chanted “trust black women,” as the other candidate is State Rep. Stacey Abrams — is black. There was no room for discussion about their stances, views, ideologies or contents of their character… it was simple a showdown over the color of their skin — and silencing Evans for hers being the wrong color.

The disrespectful protest was eerily similar to what was done to Senator Bernie Sanders when he attempted to speak at Netroots during his campaign during the presidential primaries. His main opponent, Hillary Clinton, had not even bothered to attend.
“I’m running for Governor because that same hand up that was offered to families like mine has been taken away. I’m running to bring that hope back to all Georgia families. But it’s not just HOPE scholarships – it’s hope as a concept. Hope that if you work hard, you will have access to a good job with a livable wage. Hope that all our kids will have access to quality pre-K and K-12 education no matter where they live. Hope that everyone has a right to access healthcare. And hope that we are all created equal and our government will not allow us to be treated otherwise,” Evans’ bio reads.
Apparently the nation learned nothing from the disaster that comes with extremist identity politics over the weekend.
TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District
It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”
Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.
Her lawlessness, ignorance and corruption have gone on for too long!

The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at PelosiForPrison.co, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.
Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”
“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”
This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
