That's like if a cop murders a black guy tomorrow and someone stands there at their funeral saying "hundreds of police officers were assaulted in this neighbourhood 3 years ago during the BLM riots". Uhhhh, pardon? Does that even matter one bit? What does that have to do with a murder today? If they use that excuse tomorrow, how long can they trot out the "BLM riots" excuse for murdering people? The fact is that a murder happened and it was vile and ugly and the perpetrator needs to be shamed 100%, and no excuses can be made for it. Were the BLM riots an excuse for Chauvin to kneel on Floyd? Of course not. It would be disgusting to bring that into the conversation. 5 cops laid there dead as nails and Obama sat there throwing shade on cops like it was somehow relevant to their fate. We could do that all day, every day, and just justify murder after murder until there's no one left. In order for society to move fwd and become what we hope it might, we need far better people than Obama as president. His racism (which he admitted to during that speech) did a lot of damage to America that was unnecessary. You are a liar. The entire goddamn speech is an appeal for unity, understanding and love. And it was a pretty good one. There is literally no way to honestly construe that speech as supportive of violence. Seriously, that's the exact opposite of any literal, figurative or contextual reading. You don't have to like it, but the absurd spin you're trying to put on it is profoundly dishonest. I challenge anyone to click that link, read the speech and try find any inkling of support for violence. It's simply not there.
