An incredible video resurfaced on social media Wednesday showing Hamas terror leader Yahya Sinwar justifying deadly violence in the Gaza Strip by accusing Israel of racism similar to that which led to George Floyd’s death.
Floyd died in 2020 during an arrest involving excessive force by former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, sparking nationwide protests and unjustified race riots.
In an interview with VICE News Correspondent Hind Hassan in June of 2021, Sinwar almost amusingly race baits by using Floyd’s death to justify the violence.
“I want to take this opportunity to remember the racist murder of George Floyd,” he said.
“George Floyd was killed as a result of a racist ideology held by some people,” Sinwar continued. “The same type of racism that killed George Floyd is being used by [Israel] against the Palestinians in Jerusalem, the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, and in the West Bank.”
Hamas leader of Gaza: “I want to take this opportunity to remember the racist murder of George Floyd … The same type of racism that killed George Floyd is being used by [Israel] against the Palestinians.”

Hamas Leader Justifies Violence By Citing Floyd’s Death
VICE News describes the interview as Sinwar unpacking “one of the main sources of tension that has led to the deadliest violence in years.”
And one of the first things he does is drop a condescending “remembrance” of Floyd. If you weren’t well versed in the news, you’d almost think this was a parody video.
In case you were doubting if the bad guys are really watching us closely to find out where we are vulnerable… in this case, our social divisions. https://t.co/Rm5tKusCgY

Isn’t it something when terrorists use the same exact talking points that Democrats here in America use reflexively?
This man is so certain he would garner sympathy from ill-informed leftists that he dropped a Saint George reference, assuming that they would have a Pavlovian response to allegations of racism.
He thinks – no, he knows – race-baiters that pervade the left are dumb enough to buy the argument.
The fact that woke people eat this sh*t up is insane. Their minds have been hijacked and are now so easily controlled by anyone who structures their supposed grievances in accordance with prefabricated “Social Justice” Mad Libs. https://t.co/TeCRk43Rws

Black Lives Matter racists and Hamas terrorists don’t just share talking points, they share an ideology and a thirst for the blood of innocent Israelis.
The Black Lives Matter chapter in Chicago posted an image on social media indicating clear support for the Hamas terrorist attacks on Israel.
Terror attacks that killed over 1,400 people, including at least 31 Americans. Terror attacks that resulted in a massacre of communities near the Gaza border that included children and families who were burned alive.
BLM Chicago posted an image of a paraglider with a Palestinian flag waving from his chute and the caption, “I stand with Palestine.”
They later removed the post.
The official Chicago chapter of Black Lives Matter released a graphic of a Hamas paraglider with the text: “I stand with Palestine.” A unit of Hamas militants used paragliders and hang gliders to launch their armed massacre of civilians in southern Israel.

Other BLM chapters similarly expressed support for the terrorist attacks on Israel. Terrorist organizations supporting one another, using the same psychological tactics of accusing those who oppose their evil of racism.
Hamas Leader Is A Major Target
Hamas terror leader Yahya Sinwar is currently a significant focus of Israel in their response to the terror attacks.
“That man is in our sights,” Israeli Defense Forces spokesman Lt. Col. Richard Hecht told reporters. “Sinwar is the leader of Hamas in Gaza and he’s a dead man walking.”
“We will get to him, however long it takes… and this war could be long,” he added.

When he eventually drops the “walking” title and simply becomes a dead man, how many leftists will argue that his death was racist? How many Black Lives Matter tools will denounce it as an act of Israeli aggression? How many will post memes in solidarity with him and his terror organization?
Will Democrats throw their little kente cloths on and hold a moment of silence in his honor?
Only time will tell.
Now is the time to support and share the sources you trust.
