I honestly couldn’t believe it when I saw the tweet. Barack Obama while addressing his followers today on social media made the Texas shooting massacre all about George Floyd.
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. His killing stays with us all to this day, especially those who loved him.
Obama, just like Biden and the rest of the Democrats continues to politicize the deadly Texas Elementary School Massacre that happened in Uvalde on Tuesday. The nation is mourning, and they haven’t spared a single second to make it about gun laws and race, when in fact the real problem according to experts is mental illness.
Seth Dillon tweeted in response to Obama’s insensitive tweet, “It sucks those kids died, but remember George Floyd? He’s who I’m still thinking about.” — Barack Obama
Not to mention, what on earth does race have to do with anything? 19 children, none of whom were black (or at least we know of yet), were victims of a mentally ill 18-year-old, and all the former President could do is talk about George Floyd, a criminal with a rap sheet a mile long. To compare these innocent children and teachers to George Floyd is disgusting and a slap in the face to the children’s parents.
President Biden also spent an entire press conference talking about the Black Community and how scared it must be for black people to go “shopping, jogging, sleeping at home”.
It wasn’t long before Twitter users caught on to the fact that once again Joe Biden was attempting to make this tragedy all about race.
Ahhh trying to the turn the shooting into a racist issue. That didn’t take very long.— Joseph Banner (@josephbanner_) May 25, 2022
