Hacker releases not so damaging Democratic Party Black Lives Matter "tactics"

Hackers, internal Democratic memos...looks really bad this. Or is it? 

When Republicans get hooked on meme, they just go nuts. Like hacking and internal private memos and emails. Only in this case, the Democratic Party"secrets" make the party look really good. This is weird.

Still, it's all in how you frame the issue. International Business Times
Democratic Party tactics for 'dealing' with Black Lives Matter leaked by hacker: An internal memo reportedly hacked from the personal computer of Nancy Pelosi, the top Democrat in the US House of Representatives, shows how officials were briefed on how to respond to the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement – including "tactics" on how to answer questions by activists.
Wow, this looks really bad, right? Wrong, unless the following secrets and "personal" list of responsible planning involving Black Lives Matter scares you:
1. Democratic Party candidates and members should never use the phrases "all lives matter." 

2. Nor mention "black on black crime" as they are "viewed as red herring attacks" and "will garner additional media scrutiny and only anger BLM activists."
Ouch, stop it. Outraged yet? Looks like Democrats stepped in it again. Damn those hackers...making the Democrats look like they actually care about something. Read on if you dare:
3. Democratic Party candidates and members should never use the phrases "all lives matter" nor mention "black on black crime" as they are "viewed as red herring attacks" and "will garner additional media scrutiny and only anger BLM activists."

4. Under a section marked "tactics", Perry instructs Democratic Party officials to "meet with local activists". He wrote: "If approached by BLM activists, campaign staff should offer to meet with local activists. Invited BLM attendees should be limited. Please aim for personal or small group meetings." He advised to "listen to their concerns" but "don't offer support for concrete policy positions."

5. BLM needs partners to achieve their agenda and they want to be a part of the conversation," Perry wrote in the memo last November. "However, BLM activists don't want their movement co-opted by the Democrat Party. They are leary of politicians who hijack their message to win campaigns."

6. Under the title "What to say to media", Perry noted that officials should aim to "rebuild the relationship" between police and community and "explore reforms" to ensure officers are properly trained and don't infringe on citizens' rights.
