Browsing through McDonald’s Twitter feed you wouldn’t know it's in the fast food business. It’s June 30, and the last time it posted anything actually related to the company was May 28. But once it got the BLM marching order, boy did McDonald's step in line…and on a rake.

On June 3 the company posted a video that’s now its Twitter background, remembering seven people: Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Alton Sterling, Botham Jean, Atatiana Jefferson, Ahmaud Arbery, and George Floyd.

“He was one of us. She was one of us. They were all one of us. We see them in our customers. We see them in our crew members. We see them in our franchisees. And this is why the entire McDonald’s family grieves," the company wrote. "It’s why we stand for them and any other victims of systemic oppression and violence. Today we stand with Black communities across America. Which is why we’re donating to the National Urban League and the NAACP. We do not tolerate inequity, injustice, or racism. Black lives matter.”

Not only were not all of the names listed innocent—Michael Brown, remember, committed a strong-armed robbery then tried to kill a police officer—and many pointed that out, but the pandering didn't even do anything to appease the Left.
