Beyonce and Jay Z have been making headlines for campaigning on behalf of democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. They appeared at an event this past Friday in Ohio in the final days prior to the presidential general election.
CBS News reported that Beyonce joined husband Jay Z at Cleveland State University for a concert that featured a get out the vote theme. Hillary Clinton has not commented on the report. But she has appeared in numerous media outlets in pictures with them at the concert in question. Ohio is in itself a key battleground state. One of the most recent polls show that Donald Trump is two points ahead of Clinton.
Just prior to 5 Dallas police officers being slain by a Black Lives thug, Beyonce posted this to her website:
We are sick and tired of the killings of young men and women in our communities. It is up to us to take a stand and demand that they “stop killing us.”
We don’t need sympathy. We need everyone to respect our lives.
We’re going to stand up as a community and fight against anyone who believes that murder or any violent action by those who are sworn to protect us should consistently go unpunished.
These robberies of lives make us feel helpless and hopeless but we have to believe that we are fighting for the rights of the next generation, for the next young men and women who believe in good.
This is a human fight. No matter your race, gender or sexual orientation. This is a fight for anyone who feels marginalized, who is struggling for freedom and human rights.
This is not a plea to all police officers but toward any human being who fails to value life. The war on people of color and all minorities needs to be over.
Hillary has made it clear she has no problem campaigning with cop haters.
At Friday’s concert singers Katy Perry and John Legend appeared as well. In a clear attempt to try and win over the African American vote for Clinton and encourage residents of Ohio to vote early prior to November 8th. The general election is less than a week away. With only four days left until election day. Many have already voted via absentee and at early election voting.
Trump plans on appearing at a Ohio event at 4pm in Wilmington, the date for it is unknown. The effect of this concert has yet to be seen. Considering all of the early voting that has already been done it is highly unlikely that an event like this will have as large of an impact as they would like.
Unlike Republicans, Democrats have been easily able to grab onto celebrity endorsements. Whereas Republicans rarely if ever come out with prominent celebrity endorsements. Which in the long run is perhaps a really good thing considering the fact we should not judge the greatness and competence of our candidates based on which celebrities endorse them. However, unfortunately that is how many in our society judge our candidates.
