• Bidensploitation

    From Aaron Thomas@1:267/150 to All on Tuesday, June 02, 2020 14:24:33
    Joe's at it again! Exploiting black people!

    This time, the disgraced ex-VP is planning to attend the funeral of George Floyd.

    How could he be such a lowlife? Trump won't be at the funeral, because he didn't know the guy. Did Joe Biden know the guy? Did Joe Biden provide him
    with the counterfeit bills? It wouldn't surprise me.

    If I knew Joe Biden, I'd recommend that he chill. Barack Obama isn't planning on attending the funeral - you know, the former POTUS? But the former VP
    thinks he's important enough to just go attend some funeral of some person
    he's never met - just so he can brag about it later during his campaign.

    I'd be outraged if someone used my loved ones' funeral as a campaign stop. Especially when they've got no agenda to prevent that type of death from happening again.

    His reasons for attending are the same as everyone else.
    Which has absolutely nothing to do with exploitation of anyone,
    dead or alive.

    I know that you are eager to see somebody defeat Trump, and in this case, you're eager to see that person be Joe Biden. But at what cost?

    Look at yourself! You're justifying Joe's exploitation of a murder victim. Prior to this, you were justifying Joe's exploitation of black people who "ain't black," and prior to that you were justifying Joe's finger-assault.

    It looks like you have a strong grudge against Republicans, and one of the
    side effects of that is that you will defend the confederate flag every time, no matter what the circumstance is.

    Have you ever disliked a Democrat?

    Hello Aaron,

    His reasons for attending are the same as everyone else.
    Which has absolutely nothing to do with exploitation of anyone,
    dead or alive.

    I know that you are eager to see somebody defeat Trump, and in this case,
    you're eager to see that person be Joe Biden. But at what cost?

    There were protests in over 650 cities in the US last night.
    Donald Trump can end this madness instantaneously by resigning
    from office. Then we will all celebrate, without having to
    wait for any election.

    Of course, that will not save Mike Pence from being defeated
    this coming November. But that's his problem.

    Look at yourself! You're justifying Joe's exploitation of a murder victim.

    Attending the funeral service of someone is paying one's respect.
    The Floyd family is thankful to all who have shown them such caring
    and respect for a man who was loved by many. It is too bad Trump has
    no empathy for those who have lost their lives due to the actions
    of police brutality. Black lives matter not just to some, but to all.

    Prior to this, you were justifying Joe's exploitation of black people who
    "ain't black,"

    It is not just blacks who are upset, but people of all colors.
    What was done to George Floyd should not happen to anybody. And
    yet the same thing keeps happening time and time and time again.
    Without ever any change. Time for real reform.

    and prior to that you were justifying Joe's finger-assault.

    False accusation is false accusation. Just another lie showing
    how desperate Trump is getting as the election draws near.

    It looks like you have a strong grudge against Republicans,

    Not at all. I said earlier in this post that Trump can end this
    madness instananeously by resigning from office. Nobody will weep
    for him.

    and one of the side effects of that is that you will defend the confederate
    flag every time, no matter what the circumstance is.

    The only place a confederate flag is appropriate is in a museum
    or on a battlefield re-enactment. Other than that, let it burn.

    Have you ever disliked a Democrat?

    Strom Thurmond.

    How does race have anything to do with any of this? It's fun for the media to say stuff like "white cop kills unarmed black man," but I missed the article where the incident was a hate crime, or the article about how Chauvin was a member of the Minnesota KKK. <- Where are those articles?

    Just as it's convenient for the media to say "white killed black" it's a convenient time for Joe Biden to say "I'll be at that funeral!" and for the media to start trying to relate the story to white supremacists.

    Nobody?

    How does race have anything to do with any of this?

    A man was murdered. In cold blood. A black man. Murdered.
    By four guys, three of them white, one of them Asian.

    It's fun for the media to say stuff like "white cop kills unarmed black
    man,"

    It is sickening and pathetic that four police officers (three of them
    white, one of them Asian) murdered a black man who was restrained and
    posed no threats to them or himself. An act of cold blooded murder.
    Caught on video for the entire world to see.

    but I missed the article where the incident was a hate crime, or the article
    about how Chauvin was a member of the Minnesota KKK. <- Where are those articles?

    Read the blog noted above. It is the first entry at the top.
    While Chauvin may, or may not have been a member of the KKK (it
    is a secret organization and does not have a public listing of
    its members), he is most definitely a white supremacist. Just
    like the orange nuisance sitting in the White House.

    Just as it's convenient for the media to say "white killed black" it's a
    convenient time for Joe Biden to say "I'll be at that funeral!"

    Joe Biden will be meeting with the Floyd family on Monday in Houston.
    But he will not be attending the funeral service itself.

    and for the media to start trying to relate the story to white supremacists.

    No need to repeat the obvious.
    Everybody already knows who and what Donald Trump is.

    That doesn't answer the question; you *want* it to be racially motivated - you're searching for that truth, but it's not there. Joe Biden wants that to
    be the truth too, because although it hurts the family, it helps Joe Biden.

    I do not believe any of those protesters around the country were
    happy about George Floyd being dead, or having been murdered by cops.
    The protesters were of all colors, not just black.

    I do not believe the Floyd family is happy that George Floyd is dead,
    having been murdered by cops. I also do not believe they cared if the
    cops were white, or Asian, or any other race.

    Whether any of this helps Joe Biden is irrelevant.
    George Floyd is still dead, and will never again walk this earth.

    May he rest in peace.

    Because the Left's Narrative is that:
    America is racist (fact: it's not).
    White people are keeping black people down (fact: they're not).
    Police kill blacks more than white (fact: they don't).

    The left is simply using this whole thing as yet another excuse to wreck everything that they didn't (really, can't) build.

    It's disrespectful to George Floyd, but they don't care about that. All they care is that they can push their false Narrative on to everyone.

    "Race" is simply their latest excuse. The "Pandemic" didn't work out well for them. So they have to do something and the Dems never let a good crisis go unexploited.

    Thanks for the clarity on this. I thought I was missing a racial part of the news, but I'm not missing anything - there's absolutely no reason for people
    to be racially stirred over this. Anger with those 4 cops, I get that, but anger about race is certainly politically engineered.

    I don't know - that's why I'm asking. Any use of the n-word? Any use of any other racial slurs? And known membership of any known hate-group? What makes this case have anything to do with racism?

    Systemic racism? I think that's what they're saying. "The system kills more blacks than whites." That might be true, but it doesn't make the 4 cops racists.

    I'm trying to figure out the justification for everyone talking about racism all of a sudden, because of 1 out of thousands of murders that will occur in the USA this year.

    Whats interesting, is that prior to November 2008, "race" was hardly ever mentioned or even an issue. It certainly wasn't a problem with Bush Jr.
    was around. And that suppossed "systematic racism" elected a black President... twice. Who campaigned on a promise of hope and change...

    Because the Left's Narrative is that:
    America is racist (fact: it's not).
    White people are keeping black people down (fact: they're not).
    Police kill blacks more than white (fact: they don't).

    Children are not the only ones who believe in fairy tales.

    The left is simply using this whole thing as yet another excuse to wreck
    everything that they didn't (really, can't) build.

    Economists are saying the US entered a recession in February.
    This was before large numbers of Americans became infected by
    the novel coronavirus.

    It's disrespectful to George Floyd, but they don't care about that. All
    they care is that they can push their false Narrative on to everyone.

    False narrative? What false narrative? You know as well
    as I do that Joe Biden cannot tell a lie. Quite unlike the
    version of Pinocchio who occupies the White House today.

    "Race" is simply their latest excuse. The "Pandemic" didn't work out well
    for them. So they have to do something and the Dems never let a good
    crisis go unexploited.

    You can't blame them for trying.
    The latest poll numbers show black approval rate of Trump at 41% -

    Why is it that black mothers and fathers have to have "the talk" with

    do with it. If Ahmaud Arbery had been a white man jogging down the
    street, would he have been shot and killed? If Trevon Martin was white
    walking home would he have been shot and killed? I seriously doubt it.

    Police brutality and racism are 2 different problems. Despite liberal best efforts, George Floyd wasn't a racism victim; he was a police brutality

    Ahmaud Arbery & Trevon Martin weren't killed by cops. Maybe they are your racism victims, but since they're both black, you're racially profiling them into George Floyd's category.

    The facts show that more whites are killed by cops. It also shows that blacks commit crimes disproportionately.

    He was definitely a victim of police brutality, which unfortunately is
    more often applied to black people rather than to white people.

    Here is a link to a very well written statement on the subject of police brutality by a veteran police office.

    Fair point -- the people who killed them were police want-a-bes. In
    both cases they were "protecting their neighborhood", but without the
    training that an actual police officer goes through.
