Anastasia Katz, writing for American Renaissance, sums up the attitude toward Derek Chauvin within black officialdom:
Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin’s murder trial began yesterday, accompanied by all the expected theatrics.
Reverend Al Sharpton has held several press conferences recently, accompanied by members of George Floyd’s family and their attorney Ben Crump, who represented them in the civil suit against the city of Minneapolis, which resulted in a $27 million settlement. On Sunday, Rev. Sharpton spoke at a Baptist Church in Minneapolis, saying “Chauvin is in the courtroom, but America is on trial.”
On Monday morning, Rev. Sharpton again stood before the press and called George Floyd’s death a “lynching by knee.” He led those assembled as they took a knee for eight minutes and 46 seconds — the time that former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin restrained Floyd. Some of those surrounding Mr. Sharpton were wearing facemasks with “8:46” and a flatlined heartbeat printed on them. The group then chanted, “No justice! No peace!”
Like most Americans, I’ve stumbled upon many statements by BLM supporters expressing a desire to punish Mr. Chauvin, and that the jury can only reach one acceptable verdict: Guilty!
If Mr. Chauvin were released in the midst of a BLM crowd, would there be any doubt what would happen to him? Of course not; he would be lynched.
I’ve already pointed out that BLM supports slavery. Now we see that it also supports lynching. Does it support segregation? Indeed:
Yes folks, BLM stands for slavery, segregation and lynching. Doesn’t sound very “progressive” to me.
