If there’s one thing we know about Democrats, it’s that they are never willing to waste a dead black body. Derek Chauvin was recently convicted on all charges in the death of George Floyd. Before Floyd’s body was even cold, the Left mobilized, burning and looting cities and attacking police and others who just want to go about their lives without the threat of a violent mob murdering them or destroying their property. Floyd’s unfortunate death in police custody has been used over and over by Democrats to push the “Defund the Police” movement and numerous other agendas. After the verdict came in, Pelosi continued that tradition.
“Thank you, George Floyd, for sacrificing your life for justice,” Pelosi said at a presser. “For being there to call out to your mom, how heartbreaking was that?”
“And because of you,” she added, “your name will always be synonymous with justice.”
She literally thanked George Floyd for apparently giving his life for her agenda. While it could be said that the lethal amount of drugs in Floyd’s system deserve all the “thanks” there, Pelosi once again showed that, to Democrats, “Black Lives Matter” are just words.
Pelosi’s ridiculous and heartless words drew criticism from the Left, who usually jump on board whenever she says anything at all.
The backlash was so swift, so brutal, that Pelosi was forced to do some damage control. She later tweeted, clarifying that she thinks George Floyd should be alive.
“George Floyd should be alive today. His family’s calls for justice for his murder were heard around the world. He did not die in vain,” she said before once again using him posthumously to support her agenda. “We must make sure other families don’t suffer the same racism, violence & pain, and we must enact the George Floyd #JusticeInPolicing Act.”
Democrats will continue to use black lives to push their socialist and extremist agenda. Black folks are and have always been political pawns to them. The good news is that African-Americans can now see Democrats for who they are. And who they are is terrible.
