Former Mayor of Baltimore and ex-Governor of Maryland, Martin O′Malley, got himself into some hot water at the Liberal-Progressive conference held by Netroots Nation held in Phoenix, Arizona. Speaking before a super-Left-Wing crowd, O′Malley was asked about the Baltimore police. O′Malley defended the police during his tenure as mayor, then echoed the familiar ′hash-tag′, Black Lives Matter. Then O′Malley added ″White lives matter″ and ″All lives matter″. This was met with a chorus of boos and protests by the militant audience. At one point, O′Malley stood on stage dumb-founded as Tia Oso, a member of the Black Alliance for Just Immigration, got on stage and addressed the audience, educating them about ″Black love″ and Black refugees trapped in Arizona. Another Democrat hopeful for 2016, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, had spoken earlier to the crowd and was also heckled for not being Black enough. Martin O′Malley tried to make amends later, apologizing both to the crowd at Netroots and again on a digital broadcast of the show, ″This Week in Blackness″.
