MLK Jr.’s Death Not As Impactful As George Floyd’s

MLK Jr.’s Death Not As Impactful As George Floyd’s

In Philadelphia on Thursday, presumptive Democrat Presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden asserted that George Floyd’s murder at the hands of Minneapolis police had a bigger impact on the world than the assassination of Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr.. MLK, Jr. was a civil rights leader for over a decade with a body of work and writings that stands the test of time. His works are taught and studied globally 52 years after his death. The two deaths should not be compared.

Joe Biden becomes more gaffetastic on an hourly basis. Victory Girls has been covering the Biden gaffes and you can read a couple of our posts here and here. You may notice that many of his gaffes target people of color. In trying to ingratiate himself with various ethnic groups, Biden exposes his racism. The Philadelphia round table was another instance of the Biden toadying. Here is the relevant clip:

First, I have to address the mask issue. My friends and I have a saying, “He/She ain’t got no friends.” We use this phrase whenever we see someone in public making a fashion/hair/etiquette faux pas. See, if you have good friends, they will tell you. They will be honest with you. Joe Biden is sitting there with his mask swinging off of his ear. No one is around him. Even if he is trying to Covid Virtue Signal, he looks like a doddering, old Memory Care escapee. No one around him told him. He has no good friends.

The statement regarding the death of MLK Jr. is offensive to anyone who understands history. Biden said:

“Even Dr. King’s assassination did not have the worldwide impact that George Floyd’s death did,” Biden said. “It’s just like television changed the Civil Rights movement for the better when they saw Bull Connor and his dogs ripping the clothes off of elderly black women going to church and firehoses ripping the skin off of young kids.”

Memo to Biden: Things don’t have to be compared. Martin Luther King, Jr. labored in his Church, in his writings and in his speeches to have civil rights brought to the forefront of the American mind. MLK, Jr. was a non-violent man. He was assassinated by career criminal and segregationist James Earl Ray. Floyd was a victim of circumstance. I have watched the whole video, and I will never forget watching Floyd’s murder. The deaths are two very different things.

What is this sudden obsession that Biden has with the word “ripping”? In Biden’s appearance with Trevor Noah, he used the word “ripping” in regards to the former General Officers who denigrated President Trump:

“I was so damn proud. You have four chiefs of staff coming out and ripping the skin off of Trump, and you have so many rank-and-file military personnel saying, ‘Whoa, we’re not a military state. This is not who we are,'” Biden said. “I promise you, I’m absolutely convinced they will escort him from the White House with great dispatch.”

Biden repeated the work “ripping” twice in the same paragraph at the Philadelphia appearance:

“It’s just like television changed the Civil Rights movement for the better when they saw Bull Connor and his dogs ripping the clothes off of elderly black women going to church and firehoses ripping the skin off of young kids.”

Is this another sign of Biden’s slipping mental faculties? Time is running out for the Democrat machine to find a replacement or a V.P. candidate who is palatable for the moderates. Trump 2020 Campaign Manager Brad Parscale tweeted an alert to the media to cover more Biden events:

Although it’s painful to watch Biden try to speak, the MLK, Jr. and George Floyd comparison is exhibit one on how frail Biden’s mental state is. And, next time, someone please grab that swinging mask off of Joe’s ear.

    “He was assassinated by career criminal and segregationist James Earl Ray.”.. but who paid him to do it? Since this world has definitely gone full tinfoil, I’ll suggest a possibility. Jesse Jackson and Farrakhan were behind it. Here’s my reasoning…
    1. With MLK in the spotlight, they were nothing more than also-rans.. no-one knew their names, at least not nearly on the level his was, but with him gone, THEY were the faces of the movement.
    2. MLK was about peaceful protest, those two wanted a more violent / militant approach (see also Black Panthers)
    3. With his death, the cause had a martyr…
    Change my mind…
    As to Gropey Joe, his comment ” ‘Whoa, we’re not a military state. This is not who we are,’” Biden said. “I promise you, I’m absolutely convinced they will escort him from the White House with great dispatch.”… Would an action such as that be the DEFINITION of a military state? Why are those on the left so stupid that they don’t see the constant contradictions and double standards of their side???

      You can add the leaders of the NAACP, the Urban League, CORE et al. to the list of suspects. When the media decided that Civil Rights was the next big thing, they were confronted by the fact that the existing Civil Rights leadership was filled by off-putting reprobates like Bayard Rustin. The media appointed King to be the public leader of the movement. It was a good choice, but the displaced former leaders were outraged. It is no coincidence that all of MLK’s program was buried with him. None of the older leaders were ever on board with it, especially the nonviolence and the reconciliation. They were and still are all about vengeance.

        Well, there was also insufficient opportunity in MLK’s approach. (Opportunities for graft and corruption, that is.)

    If Joe truly had any friends, or a caring wife, he’d be out of the race. Joe’s got a dead circuit somewhere in his head, and his handlers are so desperate to defeat Trump, they just don’t care. Never cared much for Joe, and the thought of him in the Oval Office scares me. It’s time for his friends and family to say “enough”. He deserves that respect.

    “Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”

    The phrase I learned was “Whoever told you that ______ makes you look good is NOT your friend.”

  • GWB says:

    Trump is prodding to have some debates with Biden now. This would be a mistake. Debates before the conventions would leave Trump open to a whole new opponent afterwards. His beating of Biden could lead to a much more capable Dem candidate in the fall.

    No, let him spout off. Let him meander and fumble and mumble and jaw. Let the Democrats suffer with replacing him at the convention*. THEN tear into your opponent once he’s official.

    (* They could pull a Torricelli Gambit after the convention, sure. But it would totally screw their balloting in most states.)

  • Politically Ambidextrous says:

    The world is in trouble when how you died is so much more important than how you lived. What kind of example is that emphasis communicating as something others should follow?

    The problem with being a martyr is that the first thing you’re remembered for is how you died. Joan of Arc = burned at the stake.

    It’s how we live that makes a difference.

    ” Floyd was a victim of circumstance. ”

    Circumstance almost all of his making. A career criminal, habitual offender with 2 convictions for armed robbery who was messed up on drugs and trying to pass counterfit currency. Not really as random as they want you to think
