Sports journalist Jason Whitlock on Thursday accused former President Barack Obama of being among Black Lives Matters “grifters,” in a series of tweets that delivered a wide-ranging attack on American culture including that black leaders prefer having George Floyd dead so they can “use him for political power.”
Whitlock made the Twitter posts one day after the two-year anniversary of Floyd dying while police officers in Minneapolis, Minnesota, were arresting him.
“Obama, and the other BLM grifters prefer him dead so you can use him for political power,” Whitlock said in one tweet, likely referring, at least in part, to how the national Black Lives Matter organization has pulled in millions since Floyd’s death and the leaders of the group, as a result, have spent freely.
In another tweet, Whitlock struck a pessimistic tone about American culture today, compared to the unity Americans showed after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, in which nearly 3,000 people died, most of them in the Word Trade Center towers in Manhattan. MORE
