Ohio Democrat Bill Patmon: Get those #blacklivesmatter protesters in front of @PPAct offices!

Come, I will conceal nothing from you: when I saw this tweet I said Gotta be an African American. No white Democrat would ever dare say this*. Ever.  And then I clicked through, and lo! He was.

During a rally outside the Ohio statehouse on Tuesday, Ohio State Rep. Bill Patmon, a Democrat, said the demonstrators from the Black Lives Matter movement, which targets the police, should include Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider.

“You hear a lot of demonstrations across the country now about ‘black lives matter.’ Well they skipped one place. They should be in front of Planned Parenthood,” said Patmon, who is African-American.

Bolding mine: let me also point out that Ohio Rep. Patmon is also introducing a bill to defund Planned Parenthood in Ohio.  This shouldn’t surprise anybody, though: African-Americans have serious moral issues with abortion. It doesn’t stop African-Americans from voting for Democrats, obviously – but their personal attitudes on abortion still remain. So the Democrats are playing with some serious fire, here. Because you may have noticed that the crowd was firmly in agreement with state Representative Patmon on all of this…

*People who like the phrase Black Lives Matter should start protesting Planned Parenthood offices.

  1. I’m rather too old, hermitish, and pallid to join that crowd, but if they want to take their message to the monsters at PP, I’ll happily chip in a few cases of bottled water and all the posterboard I can lay hold of. Gotta do my part for solidarity, you know? Because on the face of it, they’re right: black lives do matter, no matter the size of the person.

  2. they weren’t voters yet so they don’t matter. and conservative black lives most especially don’t matter. but i do like the potential optics here. hopefully the black churches will protest too. could we bring back some of the old sixties slogans? stop the killing, like that?
