(SL) – The Hillary Clinton for African Americans Event went down on Friday in Atlanta and of course Sytonnia LIVE was on location at CAU’s Epps Gymnasium which was full of Clinton supporters and non-supporters.
Some of Atlanta’s most influential people took part in the rally. Mayor Kaseem Reed, Congressman John Lewis, Atlanta Hawks Owner Grant Hill and many more. But what started out as a peaceful gathering quickly turned into chaos.
As Hillary As Hillary referenced our civil rights leaders and following their methods for change…the interruption came from the back.
Hillary stood firm as they got louder A few men moved in to try and encourage the group to leave quietly.
At first, the former secretary of state acknowledged them: “Yes they do and I’m gonna talk a lot about that in a minute,” she said.
She then tried ignoring the protesters, shouting her remarks over the chants.
“I have some issues to discuss and proposals to make if our friends will allow me to do it. They may actually find them to their liking,” Clinton said, while continuing to speak over the disruption, one of the loudest she had faced on the campaign trail.
At this point, mind you, they are standing in front of the mayor, Congressman Lewis, Usher etc. The Mayor looked to be in disbelief.
His wife remained in her seat. Congressman Lewis tried to get the group to leave.
The crowd eventually started chanting..let her talk and Hil-la-ry. It was so bad the Mayor and Congressman Lewis went back on stage and stood firmly behind Hillary.
The secret service formed a strategic circle around the platform. Finally, the group was escorted out.
Once the chaos cleared, Hillary said and I quote….”I would like to thank Mayor Reed and Congressman John Lewis for having my back!” Lol I chuckled a little.
