Recently, I was accused of gutter politics by Michigan state board of education candidate Sonjalita Hulbert for pointing out her history of supporting Black Lives Matter.
Hulbert posted a video response to my blog in which she suggested it is beyond the pale to hold a political candidate accountable to their on-the-record statements regarding pressing issues.
“I have spoke to several Republican groups across the state denouncing Black Lives Matter and its platform to dismantle families across this country,” Hulbert said.
“I am saddened that this garbage is being passed around when I have stood for this flag, served my country with purpose and greatness, and still, jumping in to serve despite the vitriol, despite the slander that is being spoken of me. This is absolutely disheartening,” she added.
While I mentioned that it was possible Hulbert changed her stance over the years, it does not seem like that is the case as Hulbert was recently profiled by the media for her support of Black Lives Matter. She bragged to the press about attending a BLM rally in June.
The always astute commentator, Corinthian Scales, posted a link to an MLive article in which Hulbert and her son were promoting Black Lives Matter and said they had attended a BLM rally in Kalamazoo:
One Lansing-area teenager attended the march with his mother. Chandler Boyd, 13, said he wanted to participate because “black lives matter.”
Boyd and his family recently moved to Lansing from Kalamazoo and still have family in the area, Sonjalita Hulbert said. Her young son wanted to make his voice heard and Friday’s youth-led march was a safe place to do so, Hulbert said.
“He’s very hurt,” Hulbert said of her son. The family is multi-racial and Hulbert is tasked with teaching her son about race relations in America.
“Raising a son in a multi-racial family is very challenging,” she said.
On the video from the rally that Hulbert bragged about attending, protestors can be seen with far-left signs and chanting marxist slogans like “No Justice, No Peace.” They can be seen angering townsfolk with their leftist agitating:
For the record, my initial article was never meant to denigrate Hulbert’s military service. As a matter of fact, there were no references to her patriotism in the original post at all. It was solely about Hulbert’s support for Black Lives Matter, which has apparently not waned over the years.
As of June, the BLM terror rampage had already been occurring for days. Buildings had been looted, cities had been burnt to cinders, monuments desecrated by thugs, innocent white people beaten and shaken down because of the color of their skin. And Hulbert still chose to attend the Black Lives Matter rally with her son, even after all this was occurring.
Please consider these facts when considering the state board of education candidates at the virtual Michigan Republican convention on Saturday.
