While appearing on CBS News on Sunday, Mike Pence blasted BLM leadership for what he called a “radical” agenda.
All my life, I’ve been inspired by the example of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. When I was in Congress, I traveled to his home church in Montgomery with Congressman John Lewis. I walked across the Edmund Pettus Bridge on the anniversary of Bloody Sunday.
I cherish the progress that we have made toward a more perfect union for African Americans throughout our history.
And I’ve aspired throughout my career to be a part of that ongoing work. It’s really a heart issue for me, and as a pro-life American, I also believe that all life matters, born and unborn.
But what I see in the leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement is a political agenda of the radical left that would defund the police.
That would tear down monuments, that would press a radical left agenda and support calls for the kind of violence that has beset the very communities that they say that they’re advocating for.
