George Floyd: The Big Lie

Original Article

Posted By: zephyrgirl, 8/10/2020 7:33:06 AM

Since that whole “George Floyd” thing happened in late May, the end of this month will officially mark one full season of nationwide (and, even worldwide) rioting to protest the perceived racial injustices of this Noble Blackman’s unfortunate passing. We were led to believe right out of the gate that racist white cops hunted down and seized this chocolate-tinted gentle giant for no other reason than the color of his skin, slammed him to the ground, and then knelt on his neck long enough to asphyxiate him despite his repeated pleas that he couldn’t breathe.

Eventually, the truth comes out.

The first casualty in War is the Truth. No one cares what Floyd did. The only thing that matters is the picture with the knee.

Everyone on this forum has known about The Big Lie for months. Unfortunately - - the elites - - our betters - - who are way more sophisticated and way smarter than we are - - haven't caught up yet. And they probably never will - - because they don't want to.

I said that nothing I didn't know that might come out would make me think that it was ok for St. George to die under Chauvin's knee held down for several minutes after he was restrained and no longer resisting. I'm not counting all 8 min 46 sec or whatever it was but at some point he stopped all motion. Furthermore I say no urgency when it was obvious Floyd wasn't alright. What I will accept as a change based on the whole video is how fine a line I imposed on the officers in my judgement of what is right. I still think Chauvin went too far, I do see why the I can't breath words meant nothing. This isn't a case where the police did everything well and someone died in their custody anyway but this is far from the narrative of a racist execution. I still see the larger point that by leveraging high profile cases to make the argument for systemic police violence where the victims are stoned felons who were resisting arrest they inadvertently prove the exact opposite. You can't fine one case where the victim is a decent person, not one? What's that tell you?

It's hard to believe Floyd was even still alive after hooping on the fentanyl let alone have heroin and meth in his system at the same time. And shame on that Minnesota AG who concealed the body cam footage so he could push his narrative that the police officers choked Floyd to death. And shame on the msm for bloodying the country with its false narrative. And shame on the dims for going along with it.

On the other side Floyd's death did make Pelosi and democrats look stupid taking a knee wearing colorful African garb towels to show solidarity with blacks to keep their votes. George Floyd killed George Floyd how he did it is another story. The cops were dumb and unprofessional.

If there is a legal obligation for the police to administer Narcan or some other medication to treat an overdose person in custody, then one mistake was made. Do we know if the police had Narcan? Everything else was done according to police procedure. Keith X. Ellison will not get murder convictions. He has said that. He blames that on 'smart lawyers.'

Except for getting Keung’s and Lane’s ethnicities reversed (Keung is half black; Lane is white) this was a very good explanation of what really happened. It is interesting to note that that grandstanding faker Michael Baden can come in over the top and cause an amendment to a medical examiner’s report. We know that Baden didn’t even do a physical autopsy of George Floyd.

I have always wondered how somebody who can't breath can say, "I can't breath." Isn't that what the whole choking education program was about -- we need to be aware of people at our dinner table pointing at their throats because they can't talk because THEY CAN"T BREATH?

I am disappointed the author didn't elaborate that the steps Derek Chauvin took by putting pressure on his neck was to stabilize him. I read another article about this and it stated that when someone is on drugs like this, that person could suffer a massive heart attack without restraint. Police officers sometimes have to use that procedure to stabilize the person. When my mom had her first chemo appointment for brain cancer, she went into massive seizures. Previously, she had radioactive seeds implanted as another way to fight the cancer. Her oncologist hadn't experienced anything like it and thought maybe the radioactive seeds weakened her brain and allowed the chemo to seep in. The reason I am bringing this up is because they had to put her in a coma to stop the seizures. At the time, I thought to myself "you have to put her in a coma to stop her seizures?" It didn't make sense but it worked. Sometimes medical procedures have to be used that don't seem quite right.

Another one of Ben Crump's race-baiting Big Lies. Ben Crump was the person who caused a non-controversial self-defense shooting in central Florida to turn into a fraudulent media circus, trying to hang George Zimmerman, who did nothing wrong at all. And now, Ben Crump has created a new Big Lie. George Floyd died of a drug overdose, with a heart attack adding to his problems, while the police were trying to arrest him. Those LDotters who have been reading the articles posted here have known the truth for 5 or 6 weeks, or maybe longer. The officers did nothing wrong at all, and had no impact on Floyd's death. If they ambulance they called for him had arrived 10 minutes sooner, Floyd would likely still have died from his drug overdose and heart attack and his Excited Delirium event, but the officers would have probably been off the hook. Ben Crump is pure evil.

Well, let's hope that Heather MacDonald apologizes for early on agreeing with the mob that Chauvin murdered Floyd. Really disappointed she caved into the Left's narrative so quickly. Same for Mark Levin on his radio show blasting Chauvin and fellow ex-cops. Both should have just said the limited video we have so far doesn't look good but let's not jump to any conclusions.

The article gives a good summary of the truthful events but leaves out the critical issue of police experience with people in a similar condition. People on these types of drugs are DANGEROUS. They are paranoid, confused, aggressive, unpredictable, and can have insane levels of strength. The average person might just walk away from the weird person or try to help them. The police are tasked with a job; to protect the public and apprehend criminals. Floyd has to be dealt with and that meant he had to be arrested. He could have exploded into violence at any moment and the officers were VERY aware of that. He was uncooperative and that made restraining him and controlling him dangerous. They showed an amazing amount of restraint and called for medical assistance but there is little else they could do for him. They applied a reasonably gentle and LEGAL restraint to keep him from getting up. It may have looked bad but was not and was entirely justified by his behavior. Most people do NOT realize the danger. They wouldn't want people they know treated like this but the people they know probably wouldn't overdose on fentanyl either and the police wouldn't HAVE to go to such extremes. A typical person would probably run away from such a situation. We have the police to act in our stead and face the situation for us. We don't want to see the ugliness that some people bring to society. Floyd was a person who brought such ugliness and we WANT AND NEED the police to deal with it. It isn't always pretty but it is necessary. We need to respect that the overwhelming majority of the time, police behave well within their training and reasonable expectations for the situation. We need to be careful about second guessing them because we are willfully clueless about the nature of the things they have to confront for us.

Portland police declared yet another riot Tuesday night on the 83rd consecutive day of protests after a 200-strong mob of protesters torched the city's famous Multnomah Building.

One image shows the protesters had marked a window to the building with the graffiti: 'Aim here.' Demonstrations that often turn violent have racked Oregon's biggest city for more than two months following the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

The week before I married on my family’s homestead in Alaska, we found out Sarah Palin had been picked to be Sen. John McCain’s vice-presidential running mate. This was big news for Alaska. Nearly everyone we knew was thrilled, even people who weren’t huge Palin fans. At the time, Palin was a popular governor who’d made a name for herself fighting a corrupt good ol’ boys system that had prevailed for too long in state politics. She was a Republican, but seen as a moderate who was willing to work with Democrats and take on powerful special interests, including the oil companies that held sway in the state capitol.

In composing my new book, Unmasking Obama: The Fight to Tell the True Story of a Failed Presidency, I thought hard about whether I should address the question of Barack Obama's sexuality. Two considerations persuaded me to pursue the issue. One was the no-holds-barred media treatment of the sex life, real and imagined, of Donald Trump and Brett Kavanaugh. The second was the fact that despite Obama's early feint to the center, his presidency was something of a golden age for gay America. A May 2012 Newsweek cover story, in fact, dubbed Obama "the first gay president."

Cindy McCain is going to bat for Joe Biden, lending her voice to a video set to air during Tuesday night’s Democratic National Convention programming focused on Biden’s close friendship with her late husband, Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona. She’s just the latest Republican to join in the convention, after a number of notable GOP former elected officials — including former Ohio Gov. John Kasich — endorsed the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee on Monday night. It’s a continuation of a major theme that Democrats have pushed through the first night of the convention — an effort to broaden the party’s appeal to occasional Republicans and disaffected Trump voters.

Ordinarily, most of us wouldn't care too much about a political leader's love life. After all, President Trump is a stellar president but his personal life hasn't been perfect. Big deal. Trump's never brought it up to win votes out on the campaign trail. Joe Biden's different. He's using the occasion of his previous wife, Neilia Hunter Biden's death in a car crash along with that of his baby daughter tell us how compassionate he is, in a bid to reap political hay. Michelle Obama, in her Democratic convention speech last night, brought it up, selling it to voters as proof that he's a nice guy.

In a recent OpEd from The Guardian, author Larry Elliot opines on the frequency of obesity among low-income households in the U.K., and points out that the problem “in the U.S. mirrors that of the U.K.” Elliot goes on to proclaim, that, “there will be less obesity when people can afford to eat better.” The premise is that poor folks are victims of one injustice or another; in Elliot’s case, he claims they are unable to afford healthy food. This notion has been floating around for several years now, particularly as it relates to children, and is one that is frequently parroted by the left in America.
