HomeNews WireWATCH: Michelle Obama Just Stirred the Pot of Racism Once Again Editor October 8, 2020 It makes no sense to me why liberals want to continue race-baiting and causing division in our country. A perfect example of this is what happened recently with former First Lady Michelle Obama when she made the statement that to believe that black and brown people are causing violence is racism. That's not at all what anyone is arguing. To date, Black Lives Matter together with Antifa has caused more than a billion dollars in damages from riots across the country. They're not just black or brown people. In fact, it looks like they're mostly white. Literally, thousands of businesses have been either destroyed or damaged, hundreds of police officers have been injured, and people have been killed because of these riots. Michelle said, "They're stoking fears about black and brown Americans. Lying about how minorities will destroy the suburbs, whipping 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 that had any violence at all. 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…" "When people hear these lies and 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 falsehood bein spread throughout the internet. And even reasonable people might get scared. And one thing this president is really, really good at is spreading confusion and lies to win." .@MichelleObama on BLM riots: Trump is “pinning [violence] 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 … What the president is doing is … racist.” pic.twitter.com/7wBsmACiCQ — Tom Elliott (@tomselliott) October 6, 2020 Only a tiny fraction? Portland has seen over 100 days of rioting and only until recently have things started to die back down to where they are actual protests, though I wouldn't call them peaceful by any means. The reason people are scared is because the media and the Democrats tell them to be scared. If they didn't report on this stuff, it would all go away.
