Watch: VP Pence Stands Strong, Refuses To Cave During Interview & Infuriates Liberals
According to the liberal mob if you don’t bend your knee and say “black lives matter” you are a racist and part of the problem. According to the extremest at CNN they claim, “[t]he distinction between saying ‘black lives matter’ and ‘all lives matter’ has emerged as something of a cultural dividing line amid the nationwide discussion about racial equality that has been touched off in recent weeks.”
During an appearance on 6ABC in Philadelphia, with Brian Taff, Vice President Mike Pence was asked three times if black lives matter and all three times he said, “all lives matter in a very real sense.”
The Vice President, when pressed as to why he would not say the phrase, said, “Well, I don’t accept the fact, Brian, that there’s a segment of American society that disagrees in the preciousness and importance of every human life.”
Taff was so frustrated that he could not get Pence to say, “black lives matter.”
Below is an example:
Brian Taff: As these things tend to go, a lot of ground to cover and not a whole lot of time in which to cover it. But let’s begin here, sir, as you know we are in the midst of a movement in this country. And, I think it’s fair to say, in the estimation of those who are marching in the streets across America right now, a movement that is finally getting some traction. And as you know, sir, that movement is fueled by the words ‘Black lives matter.’ And yet, despite that, and the volume with which we’re hearing it and the monumental nature of these changes, there are only really a handful of elected Republican leaders in Washington who have uttered those words – ‘Black lives matter.’ And I wonder, sir, if those are words that you will utter right here, right here today – ‘Black lives matter.’ Can you say those words?
Vice President Pence: Well, Brian, let me just say that what happened to George Floyd was a tragedy. And in this nation, especially on Juneteenth, we celebrate the fact that from the founding of this nation, we cherish the ideal that all of us are created equal and endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights. And so all lives matter in a very real sense.
You can watch the interview below:
This infuriated the left, Pence stood strong and refused to cave. However, Patrisse Cullors, co-founder of “Black Lives Matter” and admitted trained Marxist said, “Trump not only needs to not be in office in November but he should resign now,” says co-founder of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Patrisse Cullors. “Trump needs to be out of office. He is not fit for office.”

There’s actually growing data that shows even 58% of black Americans agree that “all lives matter” is more appropriate.
Americans like “All Lives Matter.”
That includes 58% of black Americans and 55% of white Americans who have a positive association with the #ALM slogan.
