Barack Obama says Floyd protests are ‘turning point for real change’

If it wasn’t disturbing enough that presumptive Democrat nominee Joe Biden has refused to condemn the George Floyd protests-turned-riots, former President Barack Obama was busted openly casting the violent rampages in a positive light. 

Obama wrote an op-ed published on Monday that characterized the “movement” as “a real turning point in our nation’s long journey to live up to our highest ideals.”

Though he threw in a small blip encouraging readers to “not excuse violence, or rationalize it, or participate in it,” the rest of the op-ed sung a different tune.

Despite the fact that dozens of cities across the US have been engulfed in violence and flames in the name of George Floyd, Obama said that “the overwhelming majority of participants have been peaceful, courageous, responsible, and inspiring. They deserve our respect and support.”

“Watching the heightened activism of young people in recent weeks, of every race and every station, makes me hopeful,” the former President wrote. “If, going forward, we can channel our justifiable anger into peaceful, sustained, and effective action, then this moment can be a real turning point in our nation’s long journey to live up to our highest ideals”

Obama joins scores of Democrat leaders that have attempted to covertly justify, excuse, or minimize the shocking violence that has consumed the nation for nearly a week.

Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison wrote a similar sentiment to President Obama’s on Thursday, calling the violent riots “distracting conduct” in a tweet.

“When George Floyd was tragically killed, National conversation focused on justice for him, systematic change. Focus must return to where it belongs; distracting conduct must cease; Police must restrain their response. Protesters need to center ,” said Ellison.
