The killing of George Floyd on the 25/5/20 in Minneapolis was a tragic event. A police officer has been charged with his murder. Clearly the killing raises a number of key issues.
Firstly some idiots are saying on the internet that George Floyd,s death was a false flag event. This is ridiculous as people could clearly seen what happened. Unfortunately shooting by the police in the USA of civilians in the street is a much too common event.
Secondly, in my personal opinion the important issue is the response of the protestors to the killing of George Floyd.
Under the Obama presidency over one thousand African Americans were shot dead by the police. However, astonishingly Black Lives Matter endorsed the evil war criminal Hilary Clinton who was a key member of the Obama administration for president of the USA in 2016.
Thirdly people are very much justified in protesting against Mr Floyd,s killing. However, the protestors have no clear political programme and perspectives. They just call for an end to police brutality.They in general do not call for an end to the economic system that creates the brutality in the first place. Some of the protestors have in fact said that they will support the war monger Joe Bidden for president. He has said that police should be trained to shoot civilians in the leg.
The protestors particularly in the USA in general have no clear political aims. They do not in general realise the need to replace the unjust corporate war mongering oligarchical capitalist system in the USA, which creates the brutality in the first place. Also the need to create a new progressive new political party as an alternative to the corporate fascist war mongering Republican and Democratic party,s.
So alas in the USA nothing will really change.The protestors will continue protesting for a few more weeks then the protests will die down.They seem in general to lack the discipline for long term political activity.
However, I urge all regular readers of my blog to keep fighting for political and social change.
Best wishes to all for the future.
