During a segment on CNN on Friday, commentator Van Jones spoke out on the death of George Floyd, stating that Hillary Clinton supporters are a bigger threat to the black community than the KKK.
“It’s not the racist white person that’s in the Ku Klux Klan that we have to worry about,” Jones said. “It’s the white, liberal, Hillary Clinton supporter walking her dog in Central Park who would tell you right now … oh, I don’t see race, race is no big deal to me, I see us all the same.”

Jones was referring to the recent incident which took place in Central Park where a white woman, who was later revealed to be a Democrat, told a black man named Christian Cooper that she was going to call the cops and notify them that “there’s an African-American man threatening my life!”
The incident came after Cooper asked the woman to leash her dog since the dog was in a leash required area. Christian Cooper was not at all threatening the woman's life.
“The minute she sees a black man, who she does not respect or who she has a slight thought against, she weaponizes race like she’s been trained by the Aryan nation,” Jones continued. “A Klan member could not have been better trained to pick up their phone and tell the police that it’s a black man, an African American man, come get him.”
The comments from Jones came in response to the death of George Floyd, a black man in Minneapolis who was murdered by a police officer. The incident has caused mass riots throughout the city.
“How did we get here? How did we get to this place where a Black man could be LYNCHED in broad daylight, surrounded by officers & bystanders, and nothing be done about it?” Jones said. “There needs to be CONVICTIONS. This is the tip of the iceberg.”
“Even the most liberal, well-intentioned white person has a virus in his or her brain that can be activated at an instant, and so what you’re seeing now is a curtain falling away,” he added on CNN.
On Friday afternoon, Derek Chauvin the police officer who was responsible for the death of George Floyd was arrested. He faces 3rd degree murder as well as manslaughter.
The announcement came from Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman: “We have now been able to put together the evidence that we need. Even as late as yesterday afternoon, we did not have all that we needed,” Freeman said.
“This is by far the fastest that we’ve ever charged a police officer,” Freeman added.
