Former First Lady Michelle Obama went off the rail in a full on attack against anyone who would dare question the violent acts of Black Lives Matter – insisting that doing so makes you a racist.
Mrs. Obama made an appearance in a desperate 24 minute long Biden campaign video which was released on Tuesday and she used the opportunity to defend the Black Lives Matter riots, claiming that violence makes up “only a tiny fraction” of the group’s demonstrations.
Black Lives Matter, standing side by side with Antifa, have caused over one billion dollars in damages across America, making their riots the most destructive in American history.
Still, The former first lady suggested that the president and anyone else who is weary of supporting such a destructive group, is racist.
“But right now, the president and his allies are trying to tap into that frustration and distract from his breathtaking failures by giving folks someone to blame other than them,” Mrs. Obama said in the video. “They’re stoking fears about Black and Brown Americans, lying about how minorities will destroy the suburbs, whipping up violence and intimidation — and they’re pinning it all on what’s been an overwhelmingly peaceful movement for racial solidarity.”
“It’s true, research backs it up; only a tiny fraction of demonstrations have had any violence at all,” claimed the former First Lady. “So what the president is doing is, once again, patently false. It’s morally wrong, and yes, it is racist.”
“But that doesn’t mean it won’t work,” Mrs. Obama continued. “Because this is a difficult time, a confusing time, and when people hear these lies and these crazy conspiracies repeated over, and over, and over again, they don’t know what to think. With everything going on in their lives, they don’t have time to fact-check falsehoods being spread throughout the Internet, and even reasonable people might get scared.”
“And one thing this president is really good at,” she claimed, “is using fear and confusion and spreading lies to win.”
Mrs. Obama was seemingly referencing a Princeton study that highlighted BLM protesting as mostly peaceful. That same study reveals that roughly 570 violent riots have occurred in over 220 locations across the country in the name under the guise of racial justice.
“Princeton University group studies 3 months of Black Lives Matter protests. Intent is to show they are ‘overwhelmingly peaceful,’” reported Byron York. “But report reveals nearly 570 violent demonstrations–riots–in nearly 220 locations spread all across country.”
This means that at least 7% of Black Lives Matters’ nationwide “protests” were considered to be violent. Far more than a “tiny fraction” as the former first lady would have you believe.
Mrs. Obama’s attempt to label the president and his allies as racist for questioning rather than condoning a violent organization like Black Lives Matter – which has accounted for so much unnecessary destruction, violence and even deaths – is quite simply a foolish last ditch effort to convince people to vote for sleepy Joe Biden.
It may not be quite as effective as the Democrats would hope, however, as according to a poll released late in September, more Americans are realizing the truth behind Black Lives Matter causing support for their protests to absolutely plunge. According to the poll, only 39% of Americans approved of Black Lives Matter protests.
