The garbage American media would love for all of us to forget about the fact that the Black Lives Matter movement actually began during President Barack Obama’s second term.
BLM adherents rioted often in response to the shooting deaths of mostly unarmed, young black men and often by police — despite the fact that in the majority of cases, the shootings were justified (and juries, as well as boards of inquiry, concluded as much).
But rather than fault BLM for destroying property, creating mayhem and committing acts of violence against innocent Americans, Obama — always the political opportunist — exploited the incidents to advance his agenda of racial division.
Following the police-involved killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., in 2014, for instance, Obama let his Justice Department insert itself into the situation by ‘requiring’ the local police department to sign off on a consent decree that required it to adopt ‘racial justice’ standards mandated by then-Attorney General Eric Holder.
While Obama appealed for ‘calm,’ his AG was being unleashed to criticize the Ferguson PD and capitalize on the unfortunate incident for political gain.
In short, Obama not only enabled BLM after it began, he tacitly supported the group by refusing to call it out by name and through behind-the-scenes policies aimed at legitimizing, promoting and enacting the group’s left-wing anti-law enforcement agenda.
Police shootings — most all of them justified — during President Donald Trump’s term led to a resurgence of BLM rioting and violence. Corporations bent over backwards to virtue signal their support with millions in donations and pledges to adopt ‘racial justice’ policies that really amount to legalized racism against whites and Asians. Sports leagues genuflected to BLM and adopted the group’s slogans and message of racial division. And still, the rioting continued.
All of which was fostered and promoted by Barack Obama — who said a few days before his first presidential election victory he would “fundamentally transform America.”
Now, after a small group of President Trump’s supporters made the idiotic decision to storm the U.S. Capitol Building last week, Obama rose from his pampered perch in Martha’s Vineyard to blame all that violence on his successor — the one he authorized an illegal spying campaign against.
Former President Obama said history would recall riots by Trump supporters at the U.S. Capitol as “a moment of great dishonor” that was brought on by a sitting president who continued to “lie” about the outcome of the November presidential election.
“History will rightly remember today’s violence at the Capitol, incited by a sitting president who has continued to baselessly lie about the outcome of a lawful election, as a moment of great dishonor and shame for our nation,” Obama said, adding: “But we’d be kidding ourselves if we treated it as a total surprise.”
Really? Because a few hundred out of the 100,000 or so supporters who came to see President Trump speak last week in the nation’s capital took out their frustrations on a broken political system — a system this jerk helped dismantle for eight years?
And what about all of the BLM and Antifa-inspired rioting during his last term in office? What about all of the rioting by Marxist supporters of those two groups that continued all throughout last year and into this year?
President Trump was responsible for none of that. In fact, Obama’s party has been inciting their supporters to violence since the day Trump was inaugurated when Washington, D.C., descended into violent rioting and groups rose from the ashes to proclaim they would become “ungovernable” as part of the new revolutionary “resistance.”
There is a new revolution being waged in America all right, but it’s one that is being waged by the Marxist left, which doesn’t back the Democratic Party but aligns with it as a vehicle to gain power. If anything, a couple hundred Trump supporters last week were pushing back, for once, against a system that has been stolen from We the People by authoritarians like Obama and used against us to destroy our country as it was founded.
