Barack Obama reacted to the Derek Chauvin verdict with this libelous lie about police
Democrats seized on a jury convicting Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd to press their political advantage.
That means attacking and defunding the police.
And Barack Obama reacted to the Derek Chauvin verdict with this libelous lie about police.
Shortly after the guilty verdict in the Chauvin trial, Barack and Michelle Obama fired off a statement complaining that a jury finding officer Chauvin guilty of killing George Floyd did not represent justice.
Instead, Obama falsely claimed that police are racist killers out looking to hunt down black people.
“Today, a jury in Minneapolis did the right thing,” the Obamas’ statement read. “But if we’re being honest with ourselves, we know that true justice is about much more than a single verdict in a single trial. True justice requires that we come to terms with the fact that Black Americans are treated differently, every day. It requires us to recognize that millions of our friends, family, and fellow citizens live in fear that their next encounter with law enforcement could be their last. And it requires us to do the sometimes thankless, often difficult, but always necessary work of making the America we know more like the America we believe in.”
Obama added that the entire American system needed to be overhauled and socialist welfare programs needed to transfer money to Democrat leaning constituencies.
“While today’s verdict may have been a necessary step on the road to progress, it was far from a sufficient one,” Obama added. “We cannot rest. We will need to follow through with the concrete reforms that will reduce and ultimately eliminate racial bias in our criminal justice system. We will need to redouble efforts to expand economic opportunity for those communities that have been too long marginalized.”
Instead of celebrating the Chauvin verdict as evidence the system worked – a jury convicted white cop of killing a black man – Democrats became enraged and used the verdict to claim the trial was insufficient because the entire American system should have been placed on trial and found guilty.
