Because the feelings of preening lefty douchebags are more important than the children.
Kids, 7-10, here to perform carols ended up surrounded by #ferguson protesters on stage. All in tears.

So true. America’s become increasingly tired of these lowlifes and their robotic talking points.
The Westlake tree-lighting and Macy’s star-lighting ceremonies are set to take place around 5 p.m., and typically attract 25,000 people each year. Demonstrators are vowing to be in that mix.
“We’re trying to have maximum disruption, maximum attention and potentially shutting down the city as much as we can,” said Mohawk Kuzma, with is part of the group Justice for Mike Brown Seattle.
It was the most visible protest since Monday, when people tried to block I-5 by swarming onto the road, and Tuesday, when about 2,000 protesters marched on the federal courthouse.
The Black Friday protest puts demonstrators in the thick of Christmas shoppers – and while organizers are not threatening violence – they do plan to disrupt business as usual.
“I want people to understand that black lives do matter and that we’re tired of oppression, police brutality, racism and basically police getting away with stuff,” Kuzma said.
