Amy’s Racist Tendencies

Biden is looking for that perfect candidate to be his VP….and at one time I thought Amy Klobuchar would be that perfect candidate….then the George Floyd debacle happened in Minnesota.

Why would that make a difference?

It seems that Amy had a helluva time attracting people of color to her campaign….and now she has crapped in her chili….

For you see the cop that killed Floyd was the same cop that Amy refused to prosecute in an earlier case of police misconduct.

Klobuchar has not commented publicly on her prospects as a vice presidential candidate. But complicating her appeal to the party’s left flank was the criticism she faced in the closing days of her presidential campaign from Black Lives Matter protesters and others angered by the disputed murder conviction of black teenager Myon Burrell during her days as a prosecutor.

An Associated Press investigation raised questions about the conviction of Burrell in the 2002 killing of an 11-year-old girl. The controversy sparked a protest that shut down the final Minnesota rally of her presidential campaign.

The Floyd case has put the national spotlight back on Klobuchar’s days as a prosecutor, particularly as it became clear Derek Chauvin, the officer involved in Floyd’s death, was involved in the death of another citizen while Klobuchar was prosecutor. Chauvin was one of six officers who fired on and killed Wayne Reyes in 2006 after Reyes reportedly aimed a shotgun at police after stabbing his friend and girlfriend. While the death happened during Klobuchar’s tenure at the helm of the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office, the case did not go to a grand jury until after she left the office and became a senator.

Choosing her at this time will lose black votes and as it is right now he cannot afford to lose any votes……

      1. Good article. Although, what does “crapped in her chili” mean? Please, you can write better than that. The fact that she was EVER on your list at all speaks volumes about the violence, complicity, and delusions of liberals (easily as much as any Republican) in the US’s ongoing imperial war against, not only its own citizens but innocent children, women, men around the globe.

      2. It means she screwed up…..Use your imagination….liberals? This whole construct of left and right is a made up BS of the Neoliberals…..right and wrong is better. chuq

      3. Yes, agreed. But they’re self-described liberals who don’t even know what neoliberalism is because they lack a global understanding. (And they’re certainly as bad as neoconservatives. Yes, you’re right, the entire neoliberal/neoconservative dynamic.) I frequently think of them as the great enablers of the US’s crimes against humanity, as they scream “why, why, why?”… when they do at all. They’ll be done being riled up in a few weeks…
