GENERAL ELECTION PREP

Hil: No Place for Violence in Politics

After protesters shut down a Donald Trump rally in Chicago on Friday night, Hillary Clinton condemned his “divisive rhetoric.” “We all have our differences, and we know many people across the country feel angry,” she said in a statement. “We need to address that anger together.” Clinton went on to reference the mass murder of black church attendees in South Carolina last year, saying that in its aftermath, people came together to bring down the Confederate flag. While well-intentioned, Clinton's comparison drew the ire of some Twitter users who questioned why she would even reference this tragedy in conjunction with the rally. "Black people unconditionally forgiving white people for previously committed atrocities is the model we should strive for? No," wrote user @hurricaneaiken.
