Former President Barack Hussein Obama compared the death of George Floyd, a violent felon and drug user who once held a gun to the belly of a pregnant woman during an armed robbery, to the deaths of schoolchildren and their heroic teachers in Uvalde, Texas, where a gunman entered Robb Elementary School and killed 21 people. In a subsequent Tweet, Obama directed readers to a webpage where they can make donations to his “MBK” group.
The day after the mass shooting in a Uvalde, Texas elementary school apparently marked the two-year anniversary of the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Though Floyd was a convicted felon and drug user who was high on fentanyl when he died resisting arrest by Minneapolis Police, the event sparked the latest and most violent incarnation of the openly Communist and anti-Christian Black Lives Matter movement, of which Obama is a major supporter.
“As we grieve the children of Uvalde today, we should take time to recognize that two years have passed since the murder of George Floyd under the knee of a police officer,” Obama wrote to Twitter, hijacking the death of innocent children to profile a convicted felon who hurt women and children. “His killing stays with us all to this day, especially those who loved him,” the tweet went on in saying before Obama praised the “activists” who “rose up” in the aftermath of Floyd’s death.
Before closing out his thread of tweets, Obama went even further into the gutter than he had just moments before, including a web link where users can donate to his “MBK” organization – short for “My Brother’s Keeper,” a left-wing, race-oriented group that was founded by the Obama White House after Trayvon Martin was killed by George Zimmerman in self-defense.
Criticism of Obama’s tweet was swift and widespread, with Twitter users of all stripes expressing disbelief that a former President would hijack the deaths of American children in such a manner.
“Brah, this ain’t it,” writer and podcast host Jason Whitlock posted to his own Twitter account, including a retweet of Obama’s post. “Little kids slaughtered at school is not the equivalent of Floyd dying after resisting arrest while high.”
“This is one of the worst tweets in history,” Whitlock went on to say in a subsequent post.
