BLM has no loyalty to either party, regardless that Pelosi and Democrats actually physically bowed to them. Can she be brought down? By and large the media is on her side. This is Nancy Pelosi, one of several people who had a hand in the massive 2020 election fraud. That’s too much power. BLM will have to frame its argument as her being disrespectful to the movement.
Pelosi canonizing George Floyd
She gave him sainthood, a sacrifice for the injustice of slavery that America is guilty of. We should all bow down to both Mr. Floyd and Pelosi and proclaim her Queen.
Black Lives Matter doesn’t think that was incredibly appropriate. He didn’t sacrifice himself, he was murdered. The official Black Lives Matter Twitter account had something to say about that. “This is so damn disrespectful. George Floyd didn’t choose to die @speakerpelosi. He was murdered by a killer cop operating through white supremacy. There isn’t justice here.”

What defines justice?
Killing all white people or just white police officers? It was the verdict the movement wanted but it’s still not enough.
Pelosi continued. “Thank you, George Floyd—for sacrificing your life for justice.
“For being there, to call out to your mom—how, how heartbreaking was that? Call out for your mom. ‘I can’t breathe. But because of you and because of thousands, millions of people around the world, who came out for justice, your name will always be synonymous…”
Pelosi led others to speak out
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said, among other things, that government needs to do more to protect minorities, “Justice is Adam Toledo getting tucked in by his mom tonight. Justice is when you’re pulled over, there not being a gun that’s part of that interaction because you have a headlight out. Justice is your school system not having or being part of a school-to-prison pipeline. Justice is a municipality and a government that does not — because it trickles down right? — that does not value military and armaments more than it healthcare, and education, and housing. So, no, this verdict is not justice. Frankly, I don’t even think we call it full accountability, because there are multiple officers that were there. It wasn’t just Derek Chauvin. And I also don’t want this moment to be framed as this system working, because it’s not working.”
Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison chimed in, indicating it may never be enough, “I would not call today’s verdict justice, however, because justice implies true restoration. But it is accountability, which is the first step toward justice.”
