Today marks one year since the death of George Floyd, and there are marches planned around the nation that we all pray will remain peaceful.

Over the past year, the officer who held Floyd down has been convicted of murder, the other officers are facing trial, and the group Black Lives Matter used anger over Floyd’s death to whip up protests that often turned violent and destructive, largely in black neighborhoods. Floyd’s death was used as an excuse to call for defunding police departments. Thousands of cops, under assault both physically and verbally, quit or retired, which has led to skyrocketing crime in every city where police budgets were cut. Many of the victims of crime and violence have been black residents, since the police presence in their neighborhoods was deliberately scaled back (despite polls showing a majority of blacks wanted more police) and specialty units designed to fight gangs and gun crimes were disbanded. It’s so bad that some of these cities are now desperately re-funding their police departments.

Meanwhile, BLM had a surge of support in polls, followed by a steep fall, as Americans got sick of riots, looting, endless racial divisiveness, racist “anti-racist” rhetoric and hypocritical BLM leaders who raked in millions in donations, bought mansions in upscale neighborhoods, and never shared a penny with those who were really trying to help black communities recover from the violence wrought by the rioters and criminals (sorry, the new preferred euphemism is “justice-involved individuals.” I kid you not.) There are now active backlash movements by state legislatures and parents to bar from schools the racist “Critical Race Theory” that teaches kids to judge others by their skin color and the anti-American “1619 Project” distortion of American history.

On the sad first anniversary of Floyd’s death, racial divisions are the worst they’ve been in years because of the concerted efforts of people who profit by dividing us. Meanwhile, the Biden Administration just told our embassies and consulates that for the rest of 2021, they are authorized to fly the BLM flag on their flagpoles, if they want.

Democrats love to accuse their opponents of being “on the wrong side of history.” I hope and pray that Americans will reject their embrace of racial divisiveness and the destruction of the Rev. King’s dream that people be judged by the content of their character and not the color of their skin, and that they will soon find themselves on the wrong side of history.

For some of the best commentary on this day, I suggest you read this, by my dear friend and the niece of the Rev. King, Alveda King.

    What about ALL the people...women, children, law enforcement that were killed during all the PEACEFUL RIOT ( ha ha ), all the property that was destroyed. Do they mean nothing to Democrats?

    This is all intentional by the globalist and New World Order People, as Henry Kissinger said America has to be brought down before the NWO can happen. I have ask the question for years why we have had so many Sec. of State who were born in and from Germany, why did we not remove George Soros who supported the NEO Nazis, why did we have a Neo Nazi as Sec of the UN who was a Nazi General, Kurt Waldheim. what we have now is Neo Marxism, taking over America.

    Floyd's death was a sad thing. Passing counterfeit money is illegal. Holding someone down with there knee on the neck should not have happened. People with body killing drugs in them die. A cops job is tough just by it's self but when a know criminal is supported by those wishing for more money it makes the job even more difficult.

    Honoring a criminal and a heavy drug user is out of my wheelhouse. It should have been called assisted suicide rather than 1st degree manslaughter. The President of the United States sent his second in to greet the Japanese and South Korean leaders, going against protocol and insulting these gentlemen who hold manners and protocol as a tradition not to be overlooked.

    All the local, state and federal elected Democrat officials who stood by and watched the BLM riots and occupations cause loss of life far in excess of George Floyd's death and untold loss from looting and arson will be judged by American citizens as knowledge of their complicity in destruction of civility and law spreads.

    I truly feel sorry for the Floyd family....this should never have happened....but, why don't we honor all those individuals who have been killed/injured and businesses burned...and countless of police officers who put their lives on the line every single day. Honestly, I am sick of hearing the names George Floyd and BLM. A White House invitation was a bit too much!

    It is a shame that George Floyd died during the arrest. I believe he was already dying from the drug overdose before being taken back out of the car and put on the ground. The fact remains Floyd was a criminal and not some kind of hero. He was a common THUG.

    This world would be a much better place, especially for the Blacks, if they would heed this woman's advice. I respect her voice so much on behalf of the unborn. She speaks truth! I had not heard the complete story of her family's loss and it only makes me think more of her.

    And thus we are once again albeit on a Grander scale witnessing the Polarizing of America. Whites, Blacks and now the some 13 million ( and counting ) Illegal Immigrants...there I said it...in 3 different camps all attempting to kill each other. Yet Old Joe wants to throw more Taxpayer money at the problem. What's happened to my America ?
