George W Bush says those who try to silence protesters 'do not understand the meaning of America'
'Looting is not liberation, and destruction is not progress'
The comments come after a week of protests, looting and riots across the country as demonstrators and police clashed in the wake of Mr Floyd's death.It has led to curfews being placed on major cities and more than 20 states calling in the national guard, while
Donald Trumpinvoked the 1807 Insurrection Act to deploy active-duty military to the streets of Washington DC.While Mr Bush praised protesters speaking out against the repeated violation of the rights of black people, he said this would only come when Americans choose the better way of empathy and peace rooted in justice.
"We know that lasting justice will only come by peaceful means. Looting is not liberation, and destruction is not progress," he said."But we also know that lasting peace in our communities requires truly equal justice. The rule of law ultimately depends on the fairness and legitimacy of the legal system. And achieving justice for all is the duty of all."Read more: The Independent »

mskhafagi اللهم انتقم منه شر انتقام بما اقترفت يداه الملطخة بدماء المسلمين الأبرياء وبما نطق به لسانه من أنها حرباً صليبية فاحتل و غزيَ بلاد المسلمين الآمنين الوادعين Bombing and abusing that's the meaning of America Laughable caspy7 This from Mr 'You're Either With Us Or Against Us' himself! Ignored millions who marched against the Iraq war which killed 100s of thousands.Bush and Blair should be put before war crimes tribunal.
Great leader George W with liberal rhetoric, we used to think he was quite extreme once upon a time, mind you Hitler was a socialist when he started... GIve Bozo and Disney fart Donald Trump a break, pair of Tuncs, never..bstards There were few people back in 2003 who would have thought it likely that in the America of 2020, George W Bush would be a voice of reason and moderation This is a measure of how close the USA is to the edge.
Wow🧐 realDonaldTrump thinks he is America, he thinks he embodies everything America stands for. He could not be more wrong! chenweihua This is the guy who is responsible to the death of one million Iraqis . THIS IS THE MEANING OF AMERICA. johnsweeneyroar He looks like an intellectual colossus compared to Trump...whoda thunk it!
DebraMessing Another satanic pedophile. I’m so glad his evil father was executed. Jesus h Christ has he popped up I remember when the media made fun of him and the democrats hated him. It wasn’t that long ago. Now you’re quoting him. 🤦🏻♀️GeorgeWBush laurawbush TheBushCenter GWBLibrary ThatTimWalker Yep
I never thought I would ever agree with anything Bush would say. But despite I totally disagree with him in almost everything in here he shows he is a defensor of Democracy. Yeah like those millions who demonstrated against his illegal occupation of Iraq based on lies which cause hundreds of thousands of deaths but essentially failed to change his behavior or that of Dick & Donald. Yup he knows his America for sure.
George and his dad had years between them to sort America out for everyone. And the MJ12 Black Mirror has become reality when George W Bush has become the voice of reason and empathy 🙄😳 but some Indian hatred and racist like secularism786 are against protests in US cause they have concern for their own brutal treatment of Minorities.
johnsweeneyroar Iraq .............. Well come to Spain and you see how these guys excel in doing so. Who is this one ahhahahhhhhahahahah I don't hear him condemning Trump personally though. I remember his response to Hurricane Katrina. DebraMessing Thank you. Please dont stay silent The people of Syria, Haiti, Venezuela, Iraq, Palestine understand the meaning of America: VIOLENCE and WAR.
DebraMessing Oh NOW everyone loves what W says 🙄 But he is against the crime so maybe retitle your post! DebraMessing Trump isn’t trying to stop protesters. He’s trying to stop violent thugs from destroying innocent people’s lives. And if you can’t tell the difference post your address and see how they treat your property.
You're the one to talk. Of course. Black2thBone Those who takes the presidency by Supreme Court decision instead of counting American votes don't understand the meaning of America. Pot, kettle. GWB Woke up now? Stay on your side of the pond. He probably expressed his opinion while resting comfortably in his ranch, away from the looted and burning working class stores. RiotsInAmerica riots2020 GeorgeFloydProtests
I love you Independent Thank you. What about the looters and violence? Millions Protested. Phoney Wars. No WMD. Lies and More Lies. Hundreds of Thousands Died. Oh Dubya ... You crack on through 👍 DebraMessing Lol...now you agree with George W? LevisBecker Imagine being so bad of a President you make George Bush look good
😷 DebraMessing No one wants to silence protesters. It's the violence and looting that needs to stop! Who is talking about humanity George W.C. Bush!!! DebraMessing Coming from the most Racist President ever well next to barrak How ironic. DebraMessing Oh good grief, you lame duck of a useless person. We all agree what happened to Mr. Floyd was absolutely wrong. Some of these protesters are legit but far too many are there for the looting. So it doesn’t look good on anyone. End this crap now. WeThePeople 🇺🇸
NO ONE IS TRYING TO SILENCE PEACEFUL PROTESTORS. WE ARE HOWEVER TRYING TO SILENCE LOOTERS AND THUGS WHO ARE DESTROYING OUR BUSINESSES . Why would he be referring to himself lol DebraMessing Protesters or rioters? DebraMessing Oh now he is okay with you all? What a joke. President Obama who I like some of his polices had 8 years to fix some of it? Where is the outrage he didn’t with Holder and Biden? They had 8 years it’s been less then 3 1/3 Demos Lol.
What a joke. Invaded a country with lies, killed many innocent and left a chaotic country. Spent much of US citizens’ taxes at middle east to kill people, caused many terrorist organisation to start. Never got a sentence for what had been done and still can speak.What a disgrace DebraMessing PresidentBush
pamz_space Yep he's also the guy that says standing up to an unjust Wars unpatriotic. Also the guy who paints wounded and amputee soldiers who he sent to have wounded in an unjust War. Ironic isn't it. That dude the war criminal only trump👍👍👍 You are the most dangerous terrorist in the Middle East, damn you
DebraMessing Bush had his share of flaws but at he didn’t hide in a bunker and trying to get ratings like that orange parasite! DebraMessing Peaceful protesting is ok, but a Riot protest not ok. Many are mixing the two together. This individual who should have been tried for war crimes is going to talk about protestors, he would probably just bomb them all.
DebraMessing What was the meaning of America to him though? Didn’t he manufacture 911? When thinking about Bush's presidency makes you nostalgic for the good old days you realise just how fucked up shit has become. DebraMessing Bush is a war criminal DebraMessing Say something President Bush for all of us to hear!
DebraMessing Come on George - publically endorse Joe for America’s sake. DebraMessing Says the one who murdered all the Iraqis for nothing. I actually agree with Bush this time.... DebraMessing What did he say about looters, criminals and murderers of innocent civilians in the process? DebraMessing Time to do the right thing and endorse Biden
' Se vc já sabe quem vendeu aquela bomba pro Iraque, desembuche - Eu desconfio que foi o Bush, foi o Bush, foi o Bush, foi o Bush....' 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Good man 🤣🤣🤣 Now you really are desperate. the same war criminal whose administration invaded falsely other countries and killing their people and claim them and their resistance as terrorists.
However much you might dislike the guy, you have to agree with the sentiments that he expressed You destroyed America He is the biggest war criminal since WWII But when he tried to silence Irak in a phony war because of his family feud with Saddam it was ok? Bush did 9/11 Bush / Blair is wanted for war crimes the twin tower Iraqi war.Bush & Blair are the ones don’t understand America or U.K. he trying to say the police crime is justified. The time is here give bush n Blair the taste of hell for foreseeable future, then they understand USA/U.K.
He's done his fair share of silencing in his time. What an absolute hypocrite. Always been a coward Bush endorses Biden Good to see a great comment on this by Mr. George W Bush. He really said it. From all corners around the world voices are raising against these type of atrocities. In democratic society people’s voice matters. Hoping for a better future. Justice to be served.
Says the war criminal. BLACK_LIVE_MATTER 'George W Bush says those who try to silence protesters 'do not understand the meaning of America' . THAT! statement can be interpreted in more than one way! That can only mean YOU are involved in this attempted coup! You know you're in a dark place when George Bush starts making sense!
DebraPiney we really are in the shit if hes beginning to talk sense! You're helping the communist revolution! This is crazy! A republican against another republican with democracts, They one thing in common they are war criminals. are minority owned! So these attacks are about cops OR George Floyd! They are using the tragedy to spread fear & terror!
Tower 7. Says a war criminal. Damn... first Ann Coulter and now I’m agreeing with GWB.... what is happening in the world?! Sit down somewhere you damn criminal! 'Whether Canada feels like they're living in an apartment over a meth lab,' Indie PA filmmaker Lance Weiler said, 'in a '94 head-on collision w/ a garbage truck, I went out the windshield after breaking my jaw on the steering wheel. Many a lucid dream I have had as a result.'
Wow Former President George Bush really doesn't get it! NO ONE IS TRYING TO SILENCE THE REAL PROTESTORS! The ones being silenced are the anarchists & antifa terrorists! The ones looting, burning buildings & attacking cops AND civilians! Many businesses burned along Lake street, Would that be freedom of speech that is thwarted by death, silence or something that government will not divulge?
There is a massive difference between PROTESTERS and CRIMINALS What world are we living in. When GWB has taken the high ground repeatedly on Trump and every other Republican. 🤷🏻♂️ What causes to align; Clintons Biden Obama Bush WHO Gates B Johnson T Hanks China All against realDonaldTrump JackPosobiec IngrahamAngle OANN
Strange he saying this... A comfy bandwagon you’re jumping on, Mr Bush. Did you learn about the meaning of America in Iraq? How many millions did he murder in Iraq? An Obama with his wars for oil. Trump is a man of peace. An for the people. Fact. George Nut Bush City Limits! Is he one of the people that's instigating this?
'The only way to see ourselves in a true light is to listen to the voices of so many who are hurting and grieving. Those who set out to silence those voices do not understand the meaning of America — or how it becomes a better place.' He is such a hypocrite Are you talking about realDonaldTrump ? VoteBidenToSaveAmerica
Those who support rioting do not understand peaceful protesting. They are being drowned out by Antifa and other opportunists, nobody else. Oh the irony of it. 😂 He is such a hipocryte Please sign! Suspend U.K. export of Arms and Riot gear to US Gov blacklivesmatter WHEN WE WERE BORN WE NEVER CARED OF COLOR OR RACE. DO NOT LISTEN TO JOE BIDEN’S RACIST SPEECH. YouAintBlack RacistBiden
the same guy whose admin put people in 1st amendment cages Yeah, the meaning of America is spending countless years invading countries for oil and to prevent the spread of 'communism'.
America riots: why are there protests over the death of George Floyd?The case of George Floyd has renewed anger over other recent cases involving African-Americans. This is how protests have spread across the US BlackLivesMatter ICantBreathe ~a thread In New York, crowds of demonstrators chanted at police officers lined up outside the Barclays Center. One demonstrator said: 'Our country has a sickness. We have to be out here. This is the only way we're going to be heard.' BlackLivesMatter And I don't blame them frankly! I feel the same rage they are expressing! But its time for calm & prayers & a silent vigil now.
George Clooney on George Floyd killing: racism is America's pandemic‘In 400 years we’ve yet to find a vaccine,’ writes actor in attack on Donald Trump’s response to demonstrations as ‘a racial dog whistle’ Coronavirus narrative is dead This will enrage the Trumpers and the Supremacists And trump is Patient Zero.
Kick It Out urges all players to take knee over George Floyd and no FA sanctionsThe chairman of Kick It Out has urged every Premier League footballer to protest the killing of George Floyd by American police by taking a knee when the season resumes Stupidest thing in this debacle so far. Just another gimmick/stunt, the largest group discriminated against are those in poverty. Take the chips of your shoulders, spare a thought & do something tangible for those of impoverished/war torn nations who struggle to get the most basic things in life - clean water & food Will Kick It Out ask EPL teams who visit China during preseason to take knee over China's Uighur concentration camps? How about when Saudi money is pumped into the league, will Kick It Out ask players to take knee against Saudi atrocities in Yemen?
How the George Floyd protests could influence Joe Biden’s choice of running mateShade cast on earlier favourites as new stars emerge in light of unrest I think he should respectfully ask the Reverand Louis T. Farrakhan if he would be interested first.
Cops and George Floyd protesters in violent clashes as US burns for sixth nightThe National Guard confirmed yesterday 5,000 soldiers and airmen had been activated in 15 states with an additional 2,000 troops on standby as violent clashes continue across the US My goodness this is awful to watch. They are not George Floyd protesters, these people are Antifa. Mainly white, domestic terrorists with a far left communist political ideology.
'He is a destroyer': how the George Floyd protests left Donald Trump exposedAs cities reel under protest and violence, Black Lives Matter leaders say the president has failed his country Inflames crisis. Brink of serious civil war He has failed it from day 1 and all those who voted this racist into power should feel a shamed. Trump emboldens those that seek to hate and inspires far right nazis with his dangerous daily rhetoric. GeorgeFloyd
