Obama worried Mass-Shooting will Overshadow George Floyd

In case you did not realize, Obama has become possibly the most vial former president in American history, using his platform to sew division and profit off the false perception of racism.

Former President Barack Obama was hammered for what critics say was a tone-deaf post linking the deadly school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, to the second anniversary of George Floyd’s murder.

The former president shared the message on Twitter Wednesday in the wake of the massacre at Robb Elementary School that killed 19 children and two fourth-grade teachers.

“As we grieve the children of Uvalde today, we should take time to recognize that two years have passed since the murder of George Floyd under the knee of a police officer.” Obama tweeted. “His killing stays with us all to this day, especially those who loved him.”

As authorities in Texas were identifying the victims of the slaughter and reckoning with its aftermath, some critics slammed Obama for also invoking the death of Floyd, who was murdered by Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin during an arrest on May 25, 2020.

Seth Dillon, the CEO of the right-wing news publication The Babylon Bee, tweeted sarcastically: “‘It sucks those kids died, but remember George Floyd? He’s who I’m still thinking about.’ — Barack Obama.”

Emanuel Rincon, editor-at-large at the conservative Latino publication El American, wrote: “The families of more than 20 people (mostly children) killed yesterday do not deserve this disrespect.”

Barrington Martin II, a former congressional candidate from Georgia, bristled at Obama seemingly conflating the school shooting with Floyd’s murder.

“Those babies were truly innocent, he wasn’t. Let’s not put them in the same sentence of a man who’s [sic] untimely death was used to unleash a summer’s worth of chaos in the name of faux social justice,” he tweeted, referring to the months of protests that broke out after Floyd’s death.

Jason Whitlock, the host of the right-wing podcast “Fearless,” issued a full-throated condemnation of Obama’s remarks: “Let’s stand George Floyd on the dead bodies of slaughtered children. This is one of the worst tweets in history.”

Other critics of the 44th US president expressed their dismay more succinctly, with pundit Matt Walsh simply writing: “What in God’s name is wrong with you.”

On the day of the Uvalde tragedy, Obama released a lengthier statement on Instagram, condemning the violence and calling for stricter gun control measures.

“Michelle and I grieve with the families of Uvalde, who are experiencing pain no one should have to bear,” he wrote. “We’re also angry for them.”

“Nearly ten years after Sandy Hook – and ten days after Buffalo – our country is paralyzed, not by fear, but by a gun lobby and a political party that have shown no willingness to act in any way that might help prevent these tragedies.”

    “Gun Violence” (as the Media calls it) – There are a lot of emotional arguments on both sides, and “Feel-Good” Legislative activity at the State levels – so let’s break down the official numbers from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention): New numbers are 38,000 deaths a year; however, the ratios are probably the same
    • In 2017, there were 32,000 deaths from Gun Violence in the USA – 40,100 in car accidents
    • 60% are suicides = 19,200 (conveniently omitted fact)
    • 3% are accidental = 960 and 4% are justified = 1,280
    • 33% are homicides = 10,560
    • However, 80% of them are gang related = 8,448.
    • That leaves 2,112 in society of 312 million
    • As we all know, it is not politically correct to discuss the prevailing Black-on-Black crime and Latin Gangs – Back population is 14%, however they represent more than 50% of the homicides.

    According to a 2013 report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, almost every major study on the issue has found that Americans use their firearms in self-defense between 500,000 and 3 million times a year. There’s good reason to believe that many of these defensive gun uses aren’t reported to police, much less make the local or national news.

    This idiot is beyond the pale. To preference George Floyd ( who was no stranger to crime himself ) in the same sentence with those innocent children and teachers in Uvalde,Tx. is just disgusting as heck! Don’t go blaming the other party ( Republicans) and the gun lobby (NRA) for these tragedies its you idiots in Congress that have a tendency to sit on their butts and never getting anything done. Again, in closing, we already have tons of laws on the books ,,just aren’t enforced and lastly. GUNS DON’T KILL PEOPLE—-PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE. !!!!! OBAMA NEEDS TO BUTTON HIS MOUTH___HE AIN’T NO SAINT !!!!!

    1. Expect anything different from this POS DEMONICrat/ globalist/ marxist bone head? Not to worry though, hell has the perfect place for him!

  3. Had it not been for the largess of POTUS Barry’s
    grandmother, he’d more than likely have ended up in a hootch on the outskirts of Nairobi selling Kat.

  4. Let’s start by trading the LBQRST alphabet emphasis being drilled into the kids heads in schools for 1960s type morality and preaching work ethic and personal responsibility to the kids instead of perverted gender identity. How ’bout common courtesy and respect for others? No need for anti bullying if you get that through their heads. If the “educators” have to teach hate, instead of working privileged white male devils how ’bout teaching them to hate communists and other people that hurt others as a matter of routine?

    The best place to start would be by pushing the law about not killing anybody. You know that one that was issued to a guy named Mosses with 9 other laws. Problem is do the woke commie teachers even know about it or what morality work ethics are let alone understanding personal responsibility.

    Who would believe that “everybody gets a trophy” would end up with puss heads thinking the coolest thing you could do is shoot and kill a bunch of frightened 10 year olds?,,,,,And I’ll guarantee one thing. He was programmed into thinking he was going to get away with it. After all, nothing is YOUT fault
