With much of America focused on the GOP debate, the Obama administration welcomed members of the radical movement Black Lives Matter to the White House.
Obama administration senior advisor Valerie Jarrett met with the activists, known for their harsh rhetoric against cops.
Jarrett took selfies with the activists, including DeRay McKesson, the man behind the “hands up, don’t shoot” lie. McKesson has often been on the ground in hotspots such as Ferguson, Missouri, flaming racial discord.

Jarrett also expressed her appreciation with their leadership.
Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson recently wrote an op-ed in USA Today in which he criticizes the Black Lives Matter movement.
But unjust treatment from police did not fill our inner cities with people who face growing hopelessness. Young men and women can’t find jobs. Parents don’t have the skills to compete in a modern job market. Far too many families are torn and tattered by self-inflicted wounds. Violence often walks alongside people who have given up hope.
What do you think of the Obama administration welcoming Black Lives Matter activists with open arms to the White House? What happened to concern about our cops, the vast majority of whom are committed to keep our neighborhoods safe every day?
