“I can breathe,” the Los Vegas Raiders tweeted. “And for now, a nation can breathe again,” tweeted commentator and former Obama adviser David Axelrod. “We must remember Mr. Floyd and the change his death brought about in American consciousness,” tweeted the BlueCross BlueShield Association, adding that “Blue Cross Blue Shield companies are determined to do the hard work to move from the front. ”
But the highlight came from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who thanked Floyd for his “sacrifice” during a press conference with the Congressional Black Caucus. “Thank you George Floyd for sacrificing your life for justice,” Pelosi said moments after Chavin’s guilty verdict. “Because of you and because of the thousands, millions of people around the world who have come forward for justice, your name will always stand for justice.”
If you had lived under a rock since May, you would have thought Floyd was a martyr who was killed for his belief in racial justice instead of a man who was murdered by a police officer.
Following Pelosi‘s logic, you would think that this black father made a deliberate choice to lie down and kneel down for 9 minutes and 29 seconds so that the world could witness his death and understand it as evil. necessary for the greater cause.
In other words, Pelosi wants us to think that George Floyd loves Jesus Christ: someone who chose to die or accepted his death to redeem the sins of society.
