(Liberty Bell) – As cities across America erupted in riots and looting in response to the killing of George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer earlier this week, the White House briefly went into lockdown as protesters swarmed the gates of the people’s house.
This is a very disturbing example of how far-fetched the political narratives of identity politics are.
President Donald Trump didn’t waste a minute expressing his grief at Floyd’s death and instructing federal law enforcement agencies to ensure that justice was served.
Floyd, who allegedly was involved in an incident involving a counterfeit $20 bill, died after a police officer, who has since been charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter, kept his knee on the back of his neck in an incident captured on gut-wrenching video which quickly went viral.
Despite the fact that the incident happened in Democrat-run Minneapolis, which is in Democrat-run Minnesota, and the police officer in question had been released from responsibility for previous suspicious incidents by none other than Democratic Senator and potential Democratic vice presidential nominee, Amy Klobuchar, protesters in DC somehow blamed the president.
As BizPac Review notes:
Fox News anchor Greg Gutfeld pointed out the hypocrisy of leftists protesting President Trump over the death of George Floyd when the murder occurred in a Democrat-run city with a Democratic mayor, a Democratic governor and a Democratic Attorney General (accused woman-beater Keith Ellison).
Minneapolis’ chief of police, Medaria Arradondo, is a black-Hispanic man who was appointed by a Democrat. Its Congresswoman is anti-American Muslim Ilhan Omar, a Democrat.
Gutfeld tweeted: “What a joke. So – who was in charge when this man was murdered? A Democratic mayor. A Democratic prosecutor. A Democratic attorney general. A Democratic union. A Democratic governor. The only person who acted quickly to bring justice was a Republican president.”
Remember when leftists blamed Barack Obama and protested outside the White House when black youth Michael Brown was killed by a white cop in 2014 in Ferguson, Missouri? Neither do we.

Not only did these protesters blame President Trump for actions that couldn’t have been further removed from him, but they seemingly attempted to storm the White House because of this.
What on earth would have happened if they had gotten through, one shivers to ask?
Would they have dragged out staffers or even members of the First Family, finally cementing, on the grounds of the White House, our nation’s public tendency towards revolutionary France?
BPR also notes that a dozen members of the media, covering the protests, had to be moved into the White House once it went on lockdown. Some “activists” wrote “F*ck Trump” on walls and a Fox News reporter was attacked and chased, but thankfully no one was injured.
The protest then headed to in front of the White House. A protester was taken by the USSS in front of Pennsylvania Ave into an adjacent federal building. Unclear what he did.A couple men then splintered off from the group and spray painted “F*ck Trump” on the building. @cbsnews pic.twitter.com/OVwPu0PF6X

The Secret Service is pushing back protesters outside of the White House after demonstrators broke barricades.
