Mitt Romney is getting castigated by many on the right for marching with Black Lives Matter today outside the White House:
Friendly reminder that Joe Biden literally told a crowd of black people that Mitt Romney was going to bring back slavery and put them in chains if he became president in 2012 https://t.co/1em2iGtFnk

.@MittRomney is marching with a group of nearly 1,000 Christians to the White House. Here he is on video saying why he’s walking: “… to make sure that people understand that Black Lives Matter” https://t.co/KCxJNchCMs pic.twitter.com/Za0Am2WL8g

Here’s a reason why he might be doing it today:
This is my father, George Romney, participating in a Civil Rights march in the Detroit suburbs during the late 1960s—“Force alone will not eliminate riots,” he said. “We must eliminate the problems from which they stem.” pic.twitter.com/SzrcAyfPD8

This might be unpopular, but this doesn’t really bother me that much. He’s not calling for the defunding of police, he’s just marching against injustice and racism. Of course, not everyone feels like I do:
Media are ***extremely excited*** about Mitt Romney supporting the political group “Black Lives Matter,” whose policy positions include nationwide defunding of police.
