"Biden Is An Idiot" - Fmr Police Officer Blasts Democrats For "Riding
The Wave Of Dead Black People"  Brandon Tatum Rips Left,
Biden, Racism, Lies

Former Arizona police officer-turned conservative political
commentator Brandon Tatum unloaded on President Biden and the press
for politicizing the Derek Chauvin trial, and insists that so-called
'systemic racism' is simply manufactured by politicians and the media
to earn votes and make money.

"I think we're living in the twilight zone," Tatum said of the Chauvin
trial. "This conviction, in my personal opinion, did nothing for our
country. People are living a lie. I mean this is one police officer,
one person in the community, they found him guilty, this was the
swiftest justice I've ever seen in my life. The day after the film
came out he was arrested. He was tried. 10 hours of deliberation, he
was convicted. I'm not really sure why people are acting like this is

"Also, he did not get a fair trial in my personal opinion. There was a
lot of obstruction that happened. They paid the family out $27 million
before the jury could be selected. I mean, they're going to have a
case in appeal. I don't know why people are celebrating and I don't
know why this is such a big focal point other than - people are making
money off of the pain of people in our country."

The BBC host then asked Tatum if he was upset over this "landmark" case?

"This is not a landmark case, this is a political agenda," Tatum shot
back. They're pushing laws in our country. Policing in America is not
inherently racist. We don't live in a racist country. This was an
interaction between a police officer that I thought did the wrong
thing, and a black man who was on drugs high, resisting arrest, and
ended up being killed by that police officer. That's as simple as it
can be. The President of the United States got out and made a fool of
himself trying to promote racism in a simple police encounter that the
officer got convicted on.

"So you reject President Biden's comment about systemic racism and it
being a stain on the whole nation?" the host replied.

"Yes, President Biden is an idiot in my personal opinion, and he's
just talkin' because he's a politician. Systemic racism - I mean if
you look at Joe Biden himself, he spoke at a Klu Klux Klan-member's
funeral and did the eulogy of Robert Byrd ... We don't have a problem
with racism in our country, we have a problem with people not
following the law. We also have a problem with politicians making up
things so they can get re-elected. And that's exactly what has been
happening. That's why you never see anything change. They're lying to

The host then tried using woke racial statistics, arguing: "So the
rate of people being killed by police - the rate is higher amongst
black people than amongst the rest of the population. How do you
account for that if that isn't a systemic racism problem?"

Tatum shut that down with force, replying: "First of all that's not
true, twice as many white people are killed by police every year.
Twice as many white people are killed unarmed by police every year -
you just don't see it. There's a gentleman named Tony Timpa. I bet
nobody has any idea who Tony Timpa is. Tony Timpa was murdered in the
same fashion as George Floyd was killed, but because he was white, we
don't hear about it and nobody cares about it. Nobody's talking about
police reform when he was suffocated and killed. But they only talk
about it because George Floyd is black.

"Black people commit over half of violent crimes in this country, and
only make up 13 percent of the population. They commit over half of
the murders in this country, but only make up 13 percent of the
population - and we can agree that 13 percent of the population aren't
the criminals. There's only a small fraction of the black community
that's doing this. So that explains why police are in the black
communities more, and that explains why black people are incarcerated
more. They are making up lies saying that it has anything to do with

"Do you understand that there's black police officers too that patrol
many of these majority-black cities? Are they racist? No, that's not
the case. They're just making things up in my personal opinion, and
they're riding a wave of dead black people in order to make money and
get political leverage."
