George Floyd did not “sacrifice” his life, Nancy Pelosi. It was stolen from him.

By the time Derek Chauvin was convicted of three counts for the murder of George Floyd, whites and businesses began to deliver their performative reactions.

“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. 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 for his “sacrifice” during a press conference with the Congressional Black Caucus. “Thank you George 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 for justice.”

If you had lived under a rock since May, you would have thought 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 loves Jesus Christ: someone who chose to die or accepted his death to redeem the sins of society.
