In an op-ed titled “Barack Obama, BLM, and the summer of George Floyd contributed to ‘Uvalde massacre,’” Jason Whitlock of The Blaze said, “As Barack Obama pretends to grieve for the children in Texas, he should make time to recognize that America’s emotional and immature reaction to George Floyd contributed to the slaughter of 19 little kids.”
Whitlock is the host of the program “Fearless with Jason Whitlock,” based out of the Nashville area. The program can be found on The Blaze’s app and on social media platforms like YouTube and Rumble.
“Yesterday, Barack Obama wrote and published the dumbest tweet in the history of Twitter. The former president stood George Floyd on the dead bodies of 19 slaughtered children,” Whitlock began, then reading Obama’s tweet.
“As we grieve the children of Uvalde today, we should take the time to recognize that two years have passed since the murder of George Floyd under the knee of a police officer. His killing stays with us all to this day, especially those who loved him,” Whitlock said. (RELATED: US ‘Black-on-Black’ Murder Soared During 2020 – Year of BLM Riots)
“President Obama wasn’t done, said Whitlock. “He went on: ‘In the aftermath of his murder, a new generation of activists rose up to channel their anguish into organized action, launching a movement to raise awareness of systemic racism and the need for criminal justice and police reform.’”
“The demonization of law enforcement and celebration of criminality,” said Whitlock in response, “are as intentional as the feminization of American men. Men are being baited to reject their natural masculine instinct.”
“Would the same number of firefighters run into the burning World Trade Center Towers in 2022 as did in 2001?” asked the host. “I’d say the number would be cut in half. Two decades ago, men were rewarded and celebrated for acts of heroism, acts of masculinity, and patriotism. Back then, we still saved our highest praise for the men and women who at least tried to do the right thing.” (RELATED: Crime Spikes in Vulnerable Democrats’ Congressional Districts)
“Today, the promoters of immorality share and/or dominate our biggest stages of adulation. Snoop Dogg crip-walking during the Super Bowl halftime show was portrayed as a sign of progress,” he said. “Cardi B got a one-on-one interview with presidential candidate Joe Biden. George Floyd is more revered than David Dorn or any cop.”
“What happened in Uvalde, Texas, is no different from what has been going on in America’s major cities in the aftermath of George Floyd. Police officers are reluctant to engage with criminals, and violent crime has skyrocketed because of it,” said The Blaze host.
