Washington  - Democrats knelt in silent tribute to George Floyd in the US Congress on Monday before unveiling a package of sweeping police reforms in response to the killing of African Americans by law enforcement. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer were joined by two dozen lawmakers in Congress' Emancipation Hall--named in honor of the slaves who helped erect the US Capitol in the 18th century. They knelt for eight minutes and 46 seconds to mark the length of time a white police officer pinned his knee on the neck of the 46-year-old Floyd,   Correction*

Comments:

Last week a group of Oberlin, Ohio faith leaders were outraged at what they termed a very symbolic photo-op by President Trump standing in front of St. John’s Episcopal Church with a Bible held high in his hand. They were so outraged they denounced it as an act of self-glorification and that it must be condemned as blasphemous and unconstitutional, and wrote a letter to two Ohio Senators and an Ohio House member calling for formal censure proceedings against President Trump. Well, lookee here! Might it be appropriate to consider this to be a self-glorification photo-op by Democrat lawmakers?

I took a knee to pray my children won’t grow up to be a violent career criminal who drives around while whacked-out on fentanyl trying to pass counterfeit currency.

I find it ironic that Kaepernick taking "the knee" in protest against our national anthem ignores the fact that if the Confederate States had remained separate from the Union, he just might not now be a free man. How many Union service men died during the Civil War to ensure that his ancestors were free men and women? And as for those members of our national Congress, how many are from Jim Crow states?

Oh dear. Someone showed them the poll saying 40% of black voters plan on voting for President Trump. You have to be super gullible to think that the vermin really, really care about black people now... as they continue to watch blacks be murdered in rat run cities. As millions of black babies are murdered before and after birth. As rat welfare and educational policies break black families. Soon congressional rats will be washing black feet. As they support a mental case. BTW, isn't it funny that we hear more about the slick slime Mittens than we do the guy who was the front runner of the rat pack? Which house is Bernie in today?

I caught just a glimpse of this pointless stunt on Fox before I changed the channel in disgust, I did notice in that short time that every Rat was kneeling except for Nadler, who remained standing, for the obvious reason that if he went to the ground it would take a forklift to pick his fat butt up from the floor.

This political, pandering act by congress members is appalling and disgusting. the thugs are probably laughing at them, the same as the feet washers. This thing has completely gone odd the rails. What will they do for an encore? Will congress ever get back to work for those of us that are not thugs who also don't take knees? Those of us that don't try to destroy the country they represent? Nancy and Chuck, you are both a disgrace. Shame be upon you. i

Re#13...... I doubt that had the South remained a separate country that slavery would still exist. However, had he been raised in the islamic countries, he might be a slave. Slavery was on its way out and would have ended with or without the war of Northern Aggression. Slavery wasnt cost competetive with industrialization. Similarly, increading minimum wage and benefits is making automation price competetive. That said..... I kneel to no one. Especially a criminal, regardless the unfortunate means of death.

Putting this in perspective, George Floyd was passing counterfeit bills, high on dangerous drugs, possibly very drunk, and had a distinguished record of multiple prison stays for violent assault, theft, etc. He also died from Cardiac Arrest DURING an arrest after exerting himself by wrestling with the police. Floyd's NOT a hero, he's a criminal who died when police followed department procedures while making a justified arrest.

You know I can, if I twist my head just right, kinda understand why the Democrats are kneeling. After all, these are their kingdoms, their police departments, their police chiefs. Their policies and laws, their mayors and largely their governors. They are responsible. While they applaud the violence and rioting....let them pay the price to rebuild.

Well now, isn’t that special…and precious of these political pandering yellow dogs. May 26th in Dallas Texas, a 59-year-old mother of two, successful business woman was gunned down point blank in her driveway by a 16-year-old blaque working on his gang initiation. This 59-year-old mother of two, successful business woman, did not carry residual Covid-19 (aka the ChiCom germ warfare disease), was not intoxicated with fentanyl, was not doped up on methamphetamine, and did not have a record of any kind with any law enforcement entity. As of this writing: 1. Not a single U.S. "Congressperson" has knelt in either sorrow or shame for the gunning down of this defenseless 59-year-old mother of two, successful business woman by this 16-year-old blaque gang initiate; 2. Schwartz György has not paid a dime to either Antifa for general services and the provisioning of bricks for throwing or rent-a-demonstrators to protest the gunning down of this defenseless 59-year-old mother of two, successful business woman by this 16-year-old blaque gang initiate; 3. Not a single blaque protester has knelt in either sorrow or shame for the gunning down of this defenseless 59-year-old mother of two, successful business woman by this 16-year-old blaque gang initiate; 4. Not a single white protester, anywhere in this United States, has knelt in either sorrow or shame for the gunning down of this defenseless 59-year-old mother of two, successful business woman by this 16-year-old blaque gang initiate; 5. Not a single television network anywhere in the world televised this 59-year-old mother of two, successful business woman's funeral; 6. Not a single TV pundit has endlessly pontificated in the gunning down of this defenseless 59-year-old mother of two, successful business woman by this 16-year-old blaque gang initiate; 7. Not one protester has contemplated storming D.C. walls or raiding and burning businesses in the . gunning down of this defenseless 59-year-old mother of two, successful business woman by this 16-year-old blaque gang initiate aided and abetted by two other gang members. 8. Not one NFL executive or player has raged against the "going of that good light", i.e. the gunning down of this defenseless 59-year-old mother of two, successful business woman by this 16-year-old blaque gang initiate. Herein lies the real shame. Herein lies the real horror. Herein lies the real corruption.

Trump held a personal possession called a Bible openly, proudly and he and Melania kneeled in prayer at the memorial for the last great pope the Catholics ever had. That honest expression of their religious faith is very offensive to Liberals of all stripes. Now what they did in Congress, that was exploitation and a photo op. Plus it was donning the garb that they have no right to wear, Kente cloth shawls. I am a white Christian and I found that display so overwhelming in offensiveness I have no words.

Black Lives Matter emerged as a national presence in the years 2014 and 2015 by declaring war on America’s law enforcement agencies. Black Lives Matter activists made headlines occupying America’s streets, targeting racially integrated and even majority minority police forces whom they accused of killing blacks at random merely because they were black. The Black Lives Matter activists fomented riots, burned and looted cities, and incited their followers with chants that ranged from “What do we want? Dead Cops! When do we want them? Now!” to “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot.”[1]

I haven’t had much time to reflect on the looting and riots that swept mostly (but not exclusively) large Democrat cities. It was a wilding on a scale we’ve never seen. It was a bloodletting and release of criminal fury. We should be clear what is happening. It is not protest over the death of George Floyd. That is the spark, but not the fire. This has been a long time coming. At least a generation, maybe two. The left methodically has taken control of key institutions to implement an anti-American, anti-Capitalist agenda.
