Former President Barack Obama recently delivered another online speech for the graduating class of 2020.
In the speech, he (of course) spoke about the riots and civil unrest following the death of George Floyd.
What was shocking though is that in his speech, he actually admits he’s a failure, but the way he frames exposes just how ignorant the liberals are.
“You don’t always need hope when everything’s fine,” Obama said. “It’s when things seem darkest, that’s when you need it the most. Hope is not a lottery ticket,” he said. “It’s a hammer for us to use in a national emergency, to break the glass, sound the alarm, and sprint into action. That’s what hope is.”
The former president then argued that the protests were a direct correlation of the “failure to reform police practices.
“[T]he protests in response to the killing of George Floyd, and Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, and Nina Pop aren’t simply a reaction to those particular tragedies, as heartbreaking as they are,” he said. “They speak to decades worth of anguish and frustration over unequal treatment and a failure to reform police practices and the broader criminal justice system.”
My history may be off but last I checked Obama was in office for eight years, almost a decade of failure is on him.
Minnesota has a Democrat Governor and Minneapolis has one of the most liberal mayors in the country. The people of Minnesota voted for their leaders, both are members of the Democrat Party. What did voting Democrat get them? Destruction, food deserts, chaos.
These same Democrat voters also voted for Barack Obama twice and what did it get them? A failure to reform police practices and the broader criminal justice system.
President Trump has nothing to do with the failed leadership of Democrat politicians around the country that failed their constituents. Obama’s own words show just how ignorant the “mob” is, as they rally to defeat Trump they are ignoring that the Democrat politicians they voted for betrayed them.
Which could be one reason why the rioting was so violent, it was the expression of the betrayal and failure of Democrats and Obama. Those people voted Democrat for years and nothing changed in their neighborhoods.
The Black Lives Matter movement isn't entirely bad and it is not exactly monolithic either. But what is bad is those in the movement that are bad together with Antifa who has hijacked the protests.
But on top of that, you have the Democratic Party trying to take over the movement and the country as well. In fact, they are funded largely by the movement.
