(Tea Party 247) – While many Americans condemn the violent riots which have broken out in response to the killing of George Floyd, leftist pundits are fanning the flames of division and racism.
Remember this the next time someone tells you Trump’s rhetoric is “divisive.”
Trump has been completely presidential, denouncing Floyd’s death and ordering the DOJ to investigate it a civil rights violation.
Yet somehow he’s being blamed.
So much so that violent “protesters” tried to storm the gates of the White House on Friday night, causing the White House to go on lockdown temporarily.
Meanwhile, the left is calling for blood.
Every inflammatory Comedy Central host Trevor Noah is defending the violent riots and looting.
“Police are looting black bodies,” he declared.
He asserted that the week’s riots really began with the incident in Central Park involving one Amy Cooper and a black man, who made a video of her freaking out which went viral. They had been having a dispute over Cooper’s dog being unleashed which devolved into her screaming that she was going to call the police over an “African American threatening” her life.
It resulted in Cooper, who is white, losing her job.
“Amy Cooper was for many people, I think, the catalyst,” said Noah in a lengthy monologue posted Friday in which addressed social contracts, race relations, the coronavirus, and failures of law enforcement.
“I think Amy Cooper was one of the first dominoes that we saw get knocked down post-coronavirus,” she said.
He repeated an oft-cited claim that African Americans have disproportionately suffered during the last few months.
“While everyone is facing the battle against coronavirus, black people in America are still facing the battle against racism… and coronavirus,” he said.
He said that the looting currently taking place following Floyd’s death is the result of the “social contract” Americans have broken with the black community.
Noah, it must be noted, is from South Africa.
African Americans “watch time and time again how the contract they have signed with society is not being honored by the country that has forced them to sign it with them,” he said.
He also blamed–surprise, surprise–law enforcement for the widespread violence.
“If the example the law enforcement is setting is that they do not adhere to the laws, they why should the citizens of that society adhere to the laws when the law enforcers themselves don’t?” he said.
In conclusion, the Daily Show host defended the people who have looted stores, government buildings, and small businesses over the last few days.
“Try to imagine how it must feel for black Americans when they watch themselves being looted every single day,” he said. “Because that’s fundamentally what’s happening in America. Police in America are looting black bodies.”
“If you kill a white person especially in America, there’s a whole lot more justice that is coming your way than if you killed some black body in a black neighborhood somewhere.”
People like this want to fan flames, they don’t want to solve issues. If they did, they wouldn’t be defending the very people who are making these difficult conversations all the more difficult to have.
