Join Jim and Greg as they discuss how the RNC was smart to move away from wall-to-wall speeches politicians and showcase how policies are working in the lives of American citizens and how socialist and communist policies have devastated other nations. They also point out that Joe Biden’s belated plea for peaceful protesting fell on deaf ears as rioters ravaged Minneapolis over the false rumor that a murder suspect had been killed by police. And they wonder what the next step will be after NBA players refuse to play in playoff games over the shooting of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin

    Single most effective way to not have a George Floyd situation again? People – especially black people – stop messing with fentanyl. And secondly, stop fighting with police.

    I like to joke that “Jim Geraghty is always wrong.”

    But can he really be as ignorant of the facts about race and homicide and the police as he sounds?

    He warns the politically active NBA players that they may turn off their audience. There is no hint that he knows that their political activism is based on misinformation.

    There is no hint he suspects that the George Floyd video may be as misleading as the Nick Sandmann video.

    Hire Glenn Loury or Coleman Hughes to educate the players about the realities of race and crime and the police. (Jim and Greg should listen, too!)

    Heather Mac Donald is real good for that too.

    Regarding Greg’s comments about the death of George Floyd: George Parry, a former prosecutor, has an article at the American Spectator in which he shows photo illustrations from the Minneapolis Police Department’s training materials regarding what to do when a suspect is suffering from “excited delirium”, caused by drug use. One photo shows an officer kneeling on the suspect’s neck in what is called the “recovery position”. He makes a compelling argument that the Minneapolis police officers were following their training in their treatment of Floyd. So it might be better for us all to hold back from declaring that a police officer’s actions are unwarranted or whatever it was that Greg said, and wait until we know more.

    Well, but she is not genderally challenged. So disagreeing with her may not be racist, but at least it’s sexist!

    FWIW, “One More Night” was just Phil Collins, not Genesis.
