Obama blames America first for bad cop incident in Minneapolis

Just as race riots lay waste to Minneapolis and cities well beyond, out comes the baleful presence of Barack Obama, to hector the nation that elected him that it's full of racism.

Here's his blame-America-first statement, via NPR:

It's natural to wish for life "to just get back to normal" as a pandemic and economic crisis upend everything around us. But we have to remember that for millions of Americans, being treated differently on account of race is tragically, painfully, maddeningly "normal" — whether it's while dealing with the health care system, or interacting with the criminal justice system, or jogging down the street, or just watching birds in a park.

This shouldn't be "normal" in 2020 America. It can't be "normal." If we want our children to grow up in a nation that lives up to its highest ideals, we can and must be better.

It will fall mainly on the officials of Minnesota to ensure that the circumstances surrounding George Floyd's death are investigated thoroughly and that justice is ultimately done. But it falls on all of us, regardless of our race or station — including the majority of men and women in law enforcement who take pride in doing their tough job the right way, every day — to work together to create a "new normal" in which the legacy of bigotry and unequal treatment no longer infects our institutions or our hearts.

Which is pretty obnoxious, given all those 'racists' who elected him twice in 2008 and 2012. Naturally, he socializes the blame: "We can and must be better."

What the heck is he talking about? Who is this 'we' you speak of, Kemosabe? This is no case of collective guilt, this is a heckuva bad cop with 18 previous complaints employed in a solid-blue city, who finally killed someone.

Every last person who saw the police brutality video from Minneapolis condemned it with unparalleled ferocity. President Trump blasted it. Fox News's Hannity excoriated it. Trump launched a civil rights investigation within hours of the news of the matter. Everyone is against what happened. The cop who did that heinous act, putting the weight of his knee on an unarmed, unresisting black suspect's neck as he cried for help, killing him, has absolutely no defenders. None. Firing and arresting the guy for murder came pretty quickly. There's no debate about whether that's exactly what should have been done, and done a long time ago. He pretty obviously commited a crime and the entire country wants him punished. That's a national consensus.

If there's any collective subcategory of guilt, look to the solid-blue one-party city of Minneapolis which protected the miscreant, again and again, through the very public employee unions Obama champions.

In that kind of an atmosphere, only leftwingery counts. The police officer in question had 18 complaints against him and a powerful police union defending him. Characters like this can't be fired, because public employee unions are always going to defend them. And not surprisingly, far-left philosopher Cornell West, who's one of Obama's stated heroes, says that Obama's the problem, laying the blame for the Minneapolis situation on Obama's failures. "Black faces in high places" didn't deliver, he opined, before spinning off into a call for more socialism.

Then he socializes the guilt again - we're all guilty, see:

 to work together to create a "new normal" in which the legacy of bigotry and unequal treatment no longer infects our institutions or our hearts.

Listen up, bub: It was one guy and three craven workmates who stood around while it happened. We don't even know the motive in this - was it racism? It appears to be that, but there was also the issue of both the cop and the victim working at the same nightclub in security -- for years. It may well have been a workplace dispute, with the bad cop using the color of state to kill his victim for other reasons. We don't know just yet, which is why Obama's claim about 'bigotry' that 'infects' our 'hearts' is so disgusting.

There's a shocker.  He blamed America for everything while he was in the Oval Office, too.

Who’s he blame for the riots? The criminals or American whites for creating them. The lack of accountability is astounding from the left. I’ve seen how much Obama cared about America and unity when he was in office. As far as I’m concerned I heard enough. He he has an opinion he should have interrupted phone calls when he was wire tapping people and voiced them then.

This article expresses my views perfectly. 
 

I didn’t even know this was happening when George got a knee on his neck and died. (I get it that asphyxiation may not have been the cause but the brutality in some form surely was, even if he was intoxicated.) Why should I be held to account? Why should I be placed in the role of the defense attorney when I want to be the prosecutor? Why don’t I get to choose? 
 

I’ll tell you why: leftists don’t want to let me look like a normal, caring human.

Great article! Especially the part immediately following Obama's incredibly vacuous (i.e. typical) platitude:

"Which is pretty obnoxious, given all those 'racists' who elected him twice in 2008 and 2012. Naturally, he socializes the blame: "We can and must be better."

What the heck is he talking about? Who is this 'we' you speak of, Kemosabe? This is no case of collective guilt, this is a heckuva bad cop with 18 previous complaints employed in a solid-blue city, who finally killed someone.

Fuuny...  Why is it always blue/leftist cities where black people seem to be treated and have it the worst, yet many still vote for the same people that fix nothing?

If I KNEW the answer to that, I'd run for mayor of Atlanta.
