Biden’s Emetic Encomium to … George Floyd?

 

I’m stealing “emetic” in this headline from Roger Kimball who writes about the rule of narrative in effect in this country versus the rule of law in the The George Floyd Narrative Unraveled. We all know the narrative regarding George Floyd’s death under the knee of imprisoned-for-life “murderer” police officer Derek Chauvin. But you have to turn to off-brand news outlets like Alpha News for the latest update about the case:

“New court documents,” the story begins, “expose the ‘extreme pressure’ prosecutors faced in Hennepin County to charge Derek Chauvin and three other former Minneapolis police officers in the death of George Floyd. Several attorneys opposed charging the ‘other three’ officers and withdrew from the case due to ‘professional and ethical rules.’”

That would be extreme pressure to lie to the jury (which was already intimidated by the summer of love reaction, courtesy of BLM) about the cause of Floyd’s death.

During her deposition, [prosecutor] Sweasy also discussed a revealing conversation she said she had the day after Floyd’s death when she asked Hennepin County Medical Examiner Dr. Andrew Baker about the autopsy.

“I called Dr. Baker early that morning to tell him about the case and to ask him if he would perform the autopsy on Mr. Floyd,” she explained.

“He called me later in the day on that Tuesday and he told me that there were no medical findings that showed any injury to the vital structures of Mr. Floyd’s neck. There were no medical indications of asphyxia or strangulation,” Sweasy said, according to the transcript.

“He said to me, ‘Amy, what happens when the actual evidence doesn’t match up with the public narrative that everyone’s already decided on?’ And then he said, ‘This is the kind of case that ends careers.’” [Emphasis mine]

Derek Chauvin may be a horse’s patootie as an officer (he’d had other complaints lodged against him previously) and a lousy neighbor you wouldn’t even want to talk to over the fence. What he’s NOT is a murderer. But the point is bigger than the injustices of this case and Kimball helpfully directs us to Tucker Carlson’s interview of Vince Everett (my Bible and my .38) Ellison. It’s worth 13.5 minutes of your time:

What makes Biden’s George Floyd lovefest so nauseating is, while he extols Floyd’s “life and legacy” (the man who once pointed a loaded gun at a pregnant woman’s abdomen), he moves on directly to his own heroism in signing legislation to restrain police efforts in dealing with the tragically, chronically, drug-addled, criminals like George Floyd. There’s no effort on the part of Democrats like Biden/Harris to pull the Floyds of the nation out of the gutter — they have them exactly where they want them — and there’s no accountability for Democrats’ exploitation of the “victims” they create for their own electoral gains. Chances are good there never will be, as the tactic of victim-making works so well for the Left due to fallen human nature. And leftists get to paint themselves as the saviors in this twisted drama to boot.

This victim-savior dynamic isn’t limited to blacks-Democrats in America. We see it playing out in the Palestinian conflict as well. It’s leftists who insist on the victimhood of the Palestinians living under “apartheid” with their Jewish “oppressor” and “occupier.” Palestinians might want to ask themselves how the Left has ever helped them build themselves up from their toxic, dysfunctional victim-culture. Instead leftists (represented by the Democrat party) continue with the narrative that Palestinians are incapable of a well-ordered society because of. . . the Jews! Because Jews exist at all in their historic homeland, let alone the well-functioning, democratic state of Israel.

The Gospel reading in the Catholic Church today is Jesus’ “render unto Caesar” response to the Pharisees (Matthew 22:15-21). However, our deacon emphasized Jesus’ question rather than His response in his sermon: “Whose image is this and whose inscription?” Deacon reminded us of the original Toy Story movie in which the toy cowboy, Woody, finds his owner’s name, “Andy,” written on the sole of his boot. Deacon asked us to consider — to whom (Whom) do we belong? Who has inscribed on our hearts and what’s the inscription? Sadly, for far too many blacks in America, the name written on the sole of their shoes is “Democrat” and the internalized message is “victim.”

Not Mr. Ellison, though — son of a sharecropper born on a cotton plantation in Haywood County, Tennessee. He’s the real hero of this little narrative. He has “Child of God”  and “Free man” written on his sole (soul). God bless him.

    Everything about Chauvin’s conviction screams “railroaded for political reasons” . . . free the man and the other officers.

    Unfortunately, even if it happened (and it won’t), where would he go? He would be hounded the rest of his life. It’s a double tragedy.

    Maybe change his name, etc?  But still, better to be out of prison.  And maybe awarded a few $Million for false prosecution, etc.

    Or are you claiming that it’s better for him to be in prison where at least he gets “3 hots and a cot?”

    It would serve Minnesota – or at least Minneapolis – right if every cop resigned until Chauvin is freed, he’s very handsomely compensated (maybe the prosecutor etc don’t get paid and he gets that money instead, for X years), and rules at least put in place to try and avoid this kind of BS in the future.  Whether they’ll actually be followed or not, nobody can say.

    I don’t think I need to make a claim. He’s not getting out.

    Maybe.  But a lot of the heat has dissipated, so one of these obvious appeals might be allowed to succeed.

    And the grifters have moved on to the next “victim,” such as “Palestinians.”

    For sure though, he’d need to get far away from Minnesota.

    I hope you’ve all had the chance to watch Tucker’s interview. Mr. Ellison makes several salient points:

      1. Democrats have always had shock troops like Iran has Hamas and Hezbollah — formerly the KKK and now BLM and antifa,
      2. MLK did NO favor to blacks when he preached that justice and freedom are dependent on government,
      3. Instead of “fear not” blacks hear people like Kareem Abdul Jabbar, LeBron James, and Colin Kaepernick say they’re “afraid” to live in America.  

    He talked about America privilege. Too bad Jabbar, James, and Kaepernick give the opposite message.

    Isn’t that what happened to George Zimmerman, who had shot Trayvon Martin in self defense?

    Or course, you’re right.  Don’t look it up on wikipedia.  Very Bidenesque.

    Exactly.

    Biden is a low IQ, grifter racist, pure and simple. He is a despicable human being who hates conservatives and this country. Judge him by his actions.
