Could Maxine Waters Spring Derek Chauvin?

Assuming that Derek Chauvin is not criminally responsible for George Floyd’s death — and it appears that he is not — the best outcome would be a not guilty verdict and the ensuing mob violence kept under control. To that end, Minneapolis has been made into a fortress. The next best outcome, if the jury succumbs to intimidation and votes guilty, would be Chauvin getting sprung after the trial is declared null and void thanks to the antics of Maxine Waters.

Readers will recall that like Al Sharpton, Waters traveled to Minnesota to exploit the Chauvin spectacle. After asking for police protection, she encouraged mob violence against the police. This was followed within a few hours by a drive-by assassination attempt on National Guard and Minneapolis police. Although powerful Persons of Color are not subject to criminal penalties (as Waters has already demonstrated), she not only committed incitement to riot, but also potentially tampered with the jury by calling for violence if they don’t return a verdict to her liking. Her behavior outraged even the pro-prosecution judge, Peter Cahill.

Via American Thinker:

Cahill denied that the jury would be influenced, but nevertheless, he lit into Waters for talking about the case, “especially in a manner that is disrespectful to the rule of law” …

Judge Cahill added that Waters’s conduct not only was “abhorrent,” but could result in the case being overturned on appeal if Chauvin is convicted.

Although Cahill is not willing to declare a mistrial, an appeals court may acknowledge the obvious: Derek Chauvin is not getting a fair trial.

An appellate court might chicken out too and sacrifice Chauvin to Black Lives Matter. But it is always possible that someone will exhibit enough character to defend our system of justice against a vicious mob.

Even if Waters didn’t derail the railroading of Chauvin, she has helped expose the vileness of today’s Democrat Party. Speaker Nancy Pelosi, one of the three most powerful Democrats, actually defended her outrageous incitement to riot.

The Democrat Party is rotten all the way to the top. We are past the point where any person who is both decent and informed could support it in good conscience.

Protest Canceled Because Dead Criminal Was White

It isn’t about police. It is about black supremacism. More whites than blacks are killed by police. But white lives don’t matter. For example, dozens of Black Lives Matter protesters descended upon Minnesota Governor Tim Walz’s mansion in St Paul on Sunday to theatrically take a knee like the overpaid ballplayers do. This was in honor of another sacred victim: a still unidentified carjacker shot by police in suburban Burnsville.

BLM protesters must be racists. They apparently assumed the criminal’s race from his behavior. He stole a car from a woman at gunpoint and repeatedly fired on police. Getting killed in the course of such activities would qualify him for sainthood in the liberal religion — except that he was white.

Characteristically, the BLM protesters jumped into action before they knew the facts. But eventually, facts filter through the hysteria and reach even moonbats.

Fox News reports:

The BLM marchers, riled by the local police-involved deaths of George Floyd and Daunte Wright, soon appeared to get word that the latest shooting was not one fit for protest.

The protesters turned back and instead headed to Brooklyn Center — the city where Wright died — “because they need more information about what happened in Burnsville first,” [Fox 9 reporter Mitti] Hicks said…

If only they would get more information on Floyd and Wright too. Both were lowlife criminals who died while resisting arrest, neither was purposely killed, and neither was worth protesting over. But it will take some time for those facts to filter through.

The mob of fools does not worship all dead criminals, but only Criminals of Color. Yet notice their own pigmentation:

A more contemptible phenomenon than willing white tools of the Black Lives Matter movement would be beyond imagination.

Al Sharpton in Minneapolis

Before Al Sharpton could become rich and powerful, first he had to become famous. This he accomplished through the mother of all hate hoaxes. Discover the Networks takes us back to November 1987…

…when he injected himself into the case of a 15-year-old black girl named Tawana Brawley, who claimed that she had been abducted and raped by a gang of six whites in Dutchess County, New York. Despite a complete absence of any credible evidence to support Miss Brawley’s story, Sharpton assumed the role of special adviser to the girl…

Lamenting that their client had fallen prey to “certain elements that have constantly antagonized the black community, including the Ku Klux Klan and law-enforcement personnel,” Sharpton and the Brawley lawyers demanded that New York Governor Mario Cuomo appoint a special prosecutor to the case and publicly charged that “high-level” local law-enforcement officials were involved in the crime—an allegation that led to numerous death threats against members of the Dutchess County police department.

The case was a farce from the beginning. Brawley refused to speak with investigators.

Then at a March 1988 news conference, Sharpton and the attorneys fingered Stephen Pagones, Dutchess County’s assistant district attorney, as one of their client’s attackers.

There was no evidence against Pagones or anyone else. It was a circus. Head clown Sharpton denounced those who questioned his absurd allegations as racist.

In June 1988, a Sharpton aide named Perry McKinnon stepped forward to make a remarkable series of disclosures. A former police officer, private investigator, and director of security at a Brooklyn Hospital, McKinnon revealed that: “Sharpton acknowledged to me early on that ‘The [Brawley] story do sound like bull—t, but it don’t matter. We’re building a movement. This is the perfect issue. Because you’ve got whites on blacks. That’s an easy way to stir up all the deprived people, who would want to believe and who would believe—and all [you’ve] got to do is convince them—that all white people are bad. Then you’ve got a movement.” Explaining that Sharpton was methodically “building an atmosphere” for a race war, McKinnon continued: “Sharpton told me it don’t matter whether any whites did it or not. Something happened to her…even if Tawana done it to herself.” To prove his truthfulness, McKinnon submitted to a lie-detector test administered on camera and passed all questions.

The grand jury’s findings were conclusive. It was all a hoax. But Sharpton kept milking it, even proclaiming that Stephen Pagones had privately confessed. He also alleged that Brawley had been victimized by a “white supremist [sic] cult ritual.”

Pagones sued him for defamation. After 10 years of death threats and misery, he prevailed in court. Sharpton was supposed to pay him $65,000, but being above the law, never did. Eventually Sharpton’s supporters paid the debt.

The unapologetic Sharpton went on to become the moral avatar of the Democrat Party. No one is considered as a Democrat presidential candidate without slobbering on his ring.

If the Tawana Brawley hoax had taken place in 2021, Pagones would have been found guilty — not because anyone believed Brawley or Sharpton, but so as to prevent savages from rioting.

Sharpton arrived in Minneapolis yesterday to stamp his imprimatur upon the spectacle unfolding there. Watch him setting off:

Is Derek Chauvin criminally responsible for the death of George Floyd beyond a reasonable doubt? Not likely. But that doesn’t matter to Al Sharpton or anyone else in the liberal lynch mob.

Maxine Waters Gets Quick Response on Call for Violence

Prominent Democrat Maxine Waters did not even have to wait for a verdict displeasing to the mob to get a possible response to her recent call for violence.

Via Zero Hedge:

Hours after Sen. Maxine Waters (D-CA) urged protesters to ‘get more confrontational,’ a Minnesota National Guard and Minneapolis police team were targeted in a [Sunday] morning drive-by shooting, according to a press release by the National Guard.

Fortunately, the guardsmen suffered only minor injuries from shattered glass. Less fortunately, this is only a taste of the violence the Democrat/media axis of evil will foment if it is unsuccessful in railroading Derek Chauvin despite the lame case against him.

Several protesters were arrested late Saturday following Waters’ comments, after what the Washington Post described as a “volatile skirmish between police and protesters” involving around 100 people.

Waters has made it clear that a manslaughter verdict will not suffice. On behalf of the mob, she demands a murder conviction, never mind the evidence that George Floyd died of a fentanyl overdose complicated by coronary artery disease, hypertensive heart disease, and the ChiCom virus.

We will soon know whether we still have rule of law in this country or we are governed by a mob. If it is the latter, dark days lie ahead. Even by lynch mob standards, Black Lives Matter is particularly savage, irrational, and malevolent.

Maxine Waters Commits Incitement to Riot

There are laws against inciting riots. Such laws do not apply to powerful Democrats like Maxine Waters, who openly calls for the mob that rules the streets in the Minneapolis area to riot if Derek Chauvin is not offered up as a sacrificial victim to Black Lives Matter ideology.

To say that Chauvin is criminally responsible for the death of George Floyd beyond a reasonable doubt would be absurd. Floyd almost certainly died of a fentanyl overdose, complicated by coronary artery disease, hypertensive heart disease, and Covid.

Waters could not care less. Guilt and innocence are irrelevant when it comes to the mob rule she favors over rule of law.

Fox News reports on her presence in Brooklyn Center last night, where she participated in a show of force inspired by the accidental shooting of another sacred Criminal of Color, Daunte Wright. Regarding Chauvin,

Waters told reporters if the former police officer isn’t found guilty of murdering Floyd, “We’ve got to stay on the street and we’ve got to get more active, we’ve got to get more confrontational. We’ve got to make sure that they know that we mean business.”

Compare that to Trump saying, “I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard today” prior to the Capitol Riot, which he was impeached for allegedly inciting.

Waters barked that a manslaughter conviction should not be sufficient to placate the mob. She wants murder. Chauvin has been charged with second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter.

If by some miracle justice prevails in the Chauvin trial, Minneapolis will burn. Waters will have explicitly encouraged the rioters. There will be no consequences for her, just as there were no consequences when she encouraged leftists to physically harass republican officeholders. The Democrat Party has no standard other than devotion to leftism.

As you can see by comparing Chauvin to the unnamed Capitol Police officer who shot Ashli Babbitt, we have a two-tiered justice system. It works similarly to a two-story outhouse. As a powerful, far-left Woman of Color, Maxine Waters is firmly ensconced in the top tier. The famously corrupt Chairmoonbat of the House Financial Services Committee knows that the law only applies to the little people on the floor below her.

Why Patrisse Cullor’s Spending Binge Is Not a Betrayal

The luxurious lifestyle of Black Lives Matter founder Patrisse Cullors is not a violation of her principles, considering that Marxism takes a back seat to black supremacism in the BLM ideology that has been imposed on the broader culture through intimidation and mob rule. She is black; her relatives are black. That means her extravagant indulgences benefit blacks and are therefore good. Patrisse makes the case:

Let me add in her defense that she did not cheat the corporations and individual moonbats who have donated many $millions to the Black Lives Matter cause. They all got what they wanted for the money: to signal what liberals consider “virtue” by siding with a demonic mob against civilization.

Spinning her plutocratic excesses as support for her family is particularly rich considering that the destruction of the nuclear family was listed prominently as an objective of Black Lives Matter, until this was deprioritized for public relations purposes. In this area, Cullors actually practices what she preaches; she helps to disrupt the concept of family be being “married” to another lesbian.

Looting Is Now “Material Liberation”

As leftists consolidate power, the Newspeak Dictionary updates will come fast and furious. They have to eradicate the old ways of thinking, so that everyone will think like our moonbat overlords. The postmodern roots of our rulers’ critical theory ideology result in an emphasis on changing thought through language. Because of the importance of looting to the Democrat version of the Sturmabteilung (i.e., peaceful protesters), the word “theft” is henceforth stricken from the dictionary. It has been replaced with the term “material liberation.”

Pretext Found to Riot in Minneapolis

Knowing that civilization will barely lift a finger to defend itself, mostly peaceful protesters enjoy rioting so much that they couldn’t wait for a verdict in the Derek Chauvin case. Or maybe they have enough contempt for the country they are destroying to think Chauvin will be found guilty despite his apparent innocence, which would obviate their pretext for unrest. The convenient thing about race riots in a society poisoned by critical race theory is that you can always find another pretext. Just wait for someone with the correct pigmentation to die during a confrontation with law enforcement and voilà:

The Minneapolis area erupted in looting and riots late Sunday after an unidentified officer fatally shot [Daunte] Wright during a traffic stop just 10 miles from where Chauvin had [liberal deity George] Floyd pinned to the pavement last May.

The liberal establishment’s enthusiastic support for the race riots that followed Floyd’s probable fentanyl overdose guaranteed that explosions of indiscriminate urban violence will be a regular feature of American life for the foreseeable future.

About 500 people had gathered overnight outside of a police precinct in the city and clashed with officers.

Details of what actually happened to Wright are still unclear.

Brooklyn Center Police said that officers had stopped an individual shortly before 2 p.m. Sunday. After determining the driver had an outstanding warrant, police tried to arrest him. But the driver reentered the vehicle and drove away, police said. An officer fired at the vehicle, striking the driver. Police said the vehicle traveled several blocks before crashing into another vehicle.

Apparently, the officer meant to use a Taser, but in the heat of the moment accidentally fired a handgun instead.

If the media didn’t encourage Criminals of Color to resist arrest, Wright might still be alive.

Minnesota Department of Public Safety Commissioner John Harrington detailed how demonstrators gathered shortly after the shooting and crash, with some jumping on top of police cars and confronting officers. Marchers also descended upon the Brooklyn Center Police Department building where rocks and other objects were thrown at officers, he said.

A thrown rock is a lethal weapon. If police were to defend themselves appropriately, this nonsense would end quickly. But that is not an option, because the media wouldn’t like it.

Harrington added that about 20 businesses had been broken into at the city’s Shingle Creek shopping center. …

The Brooklyn Center Walmart was targeted by looters who also completely destroyed a nearby Foot Locker, T Mobile and a New York men’s clothing store. Looting spilled over into north and south Minneapolis late Sunday into Monday morning as stores in Uptown and along Lake Street were also broken into and emptied.

This would qualify as social justice, on the grounds that it is shop-owners’ fault that Criminals of Color sometimes get themselves killed while resisting arrest.

Watch the deliberately engineered collapse of civilization into savagery unfold:

Liberals must be rubbing their hands in glee as they anticipate how they will exploit the violence they aid and abet to advance gun control:

A police headquarters in another neighboring city of Brooklyn Park was “shot up” around 8 p.m. Sunday, Fox 9 Minneapolis reported. Multiple rounds were fired through the building’s glass front doors with some shots reaching the lobby.

So long as the ruling class glorifies criminals and eggs on race riots, we will get more of them. Reward bad people the way Patrisse Cullors has been rewarded and ever worse behavior is guaranteed.

The situation will continue to deteriorate until one of two things happens: (1) America succumbs to liberalism and is destroyed; or (2) Americans reject liberalism and push back hard enough to reestablish sanity.

If Option #1 is chosen, this video of mostly peaceful protesters looting what appears to be a Nike store will serve as the USA’s epitaph:

This is particularly emblematic because Nike helped the Black Lives Matter cancer metastasize by making Colin Kaepernick — a bench-warming athlete who had reinvented himself as an anti-police, anti-American, black supremacist activist — into the public face of the corporation.

Black Lives Matter Founder on Luxury Housing Buying Binge

It didn’t seem likely that self-described Marxist Black Lives Matter founder Patrisse Cullors would settle for her pricey new home near Malibu as her primary residence. Sure enough:

As [riots] broke out across the country in the name of Black Lives Matter, the group’s co-founder went on a real estate-buying binge, snagging four high-end homes for $3.2 million in the US alone, according to property records.

Bernie Sanders, eat your heart out.

Patrisse Khan-Cullors, 37, also eyed property in the Bahamas at an ultra-exclusive resort where Justin Timberlake and Tiger Woods both have homes, The Post has learned. Luxury apartments and townhouses at the beachfront Albany resort outside Nassau are priced between $5 million and $20 million, according to a local agent. …

“People who buy at the Albany are buying their fourth or fifth home,” said a resort worker who did not want to be identified. “This is not a second-home residence. It’s extremely high-end, and people are coming here for complete and total privacy.”

All that money woke corporations ostentatiously shovel at Black Lives Matter had to go somewhere. It certainly isn’t going to improve the lives of black people — with the exception of the ones running the scam.

It used to be that you got rich in this country by making things. Now, you get rich by breaking things.

In addition to the generous cut she presumably receives from BLM donations, Cullors has capitalized on her divisive moonbattery with the book When They Call You a Terrorist. Also,

In October, the activist signed “a multi-platform” deal with Warner Bros. Television Group to help produce content for “black voices who have been historically marginalized,” she said in a statement.

Poor marginalized Patrisse. The heart bleeds.

It’s also not clear how much Khan-Cullors makes in salary as one of the leaders of the movement, since its finances are split among both non-profit and for-profit entities and difficult to trace.

If she is smart enough to muddy the finances, no doubt she takes care not to buy properties in the sort of neighborhoods her followers burn down.

Lifestyles of the Rich and Marxist: Patrisse Cullors

Maybe you can make a good living with a major in moonbattery after all. Patrisse Cullors describes herself as a “trained Marxist.” As a founder of Black Lives Matter, she has played a key role in turning the country against itself, driving crime into the stratosphere by hamstringing the police, causing $billions in riot damages, and destroying innumerable lives. It has all worked out fine for Patrisse:

A secluded mini-compound tucked into L.A.’s rustic and semi-remote Topanga Canyon was recently sold for a tad more than $1.4 million to a corporate entity that public records show is controlled by Patrisse Khan-Cullors, 37-year-old social justice visionary and co-founder of the galvanizing and, for some, controversial Black Lives Matter movement.

Kahn-Cullors, a UCLA and USC graduate married [sic] about five years ago to social activist (and amateur boxer) Janaya Khan, co-founder of Black Lives Matter Toronto, created the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag in 2013 in response to George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the 2012 shooting of Trayvon Martin.

The cancer continued to grow throughout the Obama years, then exploded as the media falsely portrayed career criminal George Floyd’s fentanyl overdose as racist oppression.

Janaya Khan is more or less female. A major item on the BLM agenda is the destruction of the family through “radical social intervention.”

Interior spaces feature bamboo floors and, in the spacious open-plan living room, dining area and kitchen, vaulted ceilings clad in knotty pine. A whitewashed raised hearth brick fireplace anchors the living room and numerous skylights baths the cavernous space with natural light.

It looks like a nice place. Fans of real estate porn might want to check out the pictures.

Despite the pricey feeling of seclusion, it’s a short drive from glamorous Malibu. The population of Topanga is 1.4% black, placing her black supremacist rhetoric in perspective.

Given the massive donations pouring in from “virtue”-signaling corporations and left-wing fools, I doubt this will serve as her primary residence. Marxist leaders can’t be expected to limit themselves to a single house. Ask Bernie Sanders.

St Louis Succumbs to Democrat Death Spiral

Leftism is a disease that kills a country one city at a time. The classic example is Detroit, the erstwhile Paris of the West, once the wealthiest city in the country, now among the poorest. There is a demographic shift; leftists like Coleman Young get elected; their policies drive up taxes, unemployment, and crime; the demographic shift accelerates as productive citizens leave; ever more radical leftists are elected. This vicious cycle works more slowly than a nuclear weapon, but as a comparison of contemporary Detroit and Hiroshima demonstrates, is more devastating in the long run. We now say good-bye to St Louis, once among America’s greatest cities. Tishaura Jones was elected mayor on Tuesday:

She will be sworn in on April 20 and faces the dual challenges presented by a declining population and one of the worst murder rates in the nation.

Jones promises to address the situation by blaming whites for being racist. She barks:

“We are done ignoring the racism that has held our city and our region back.”

But it is not racist whites who have pushed the murder rate into the stratosphere.

Police statistics show 262 people were killed in St. Louis last year — five fewer than the record of 267 set in 1993. But because the city’s population has declined sharply since 1993, the per capita homicide rate was much higher in 2020. …

Already, 2021 is shaping up to be even worse. The city has recorded 46 killings through Tuesday, about 10 ahead of last year’s dangerously high pace.

This results directly from the hamstringing of police and emboldening of criminals resulting from the pernicious Black Lives Matter phenomenon. The incoming mayor’s solution is to indulge in moonbattery while pouring gasoline on the fire.

Jones has pledged to bring in more social workers, mental health counselors and substance abuse counselors. She sees social aid as an alternative to adding more uniformed officers while her victory speech focused largely on overcoming racism and bigotry.

If racism against blacks is a problem, how does she explain her own election? Like Obama, she doesn’t explain it. She just keeps plowing forward with the cultural Marxist demagoguery.

“I will not stay silent when I spot racism,” Jones said. “I will not stay silent when I spot homophobia or transphobia. I will not stay silent when I spot xenophobia. I will not stay silent when I spot religious intolerance. I will not stay silent when I spot any injustice.”

However, she will stay silent about crime when it continues to skyrocket.

If you live in St Louis, don’t expect to defend your property by standing in the yard with an AR-15 like Mark McCloskey when the mob approaches. Get out now, before property values collapse to Detroit levels.

Poetic Justice for Black Lives Matter in Hungary

Even in these dark times, there are parts of the world where moonbattery does not prevail. Hungary, for example.

Black Lives Matter and its Antifa allies are famous for defacing and tearing down statues of great men who represent the civilization they are committed to destroying, including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Christopher Columbus, and many more. In Hungary, BLM reaped as it has sown:

[Last Friday], a rainbow-coloured statue in honour of the Black Lives Matter movement was inaugurated in Budapest.

Not everyone was pleased.

Our Homeland Movement … said the statue was “an anti-European, anti-white, anti-heterosexual, and anti-Christian symbol”.

Hungarians appear to know more about Black Lives Matter than Americans who rely on the MSM for news.

It was planned that the rainbow-coloured statue would have been displayed until April 14th. However, in the time since the statue was erected, the statue was fenced up, then doused with paint, and demolished and smashed on Friday morning.

It was hit by three separate attacks and destroyed within hours of its unveiling. What goes around comes around.

Black Lives Matter Art on Seattle Area Buses

Riots inspired by the Black Lives Matter cancer have caused $2 billion in damage. Seattle has been hit hard, with sociopaths pouring in from out of town to indulge in the mayhem fostered by its leftist leadership. Rioting and vandalism have been nearly as incessant as in Portland, leaving parts of the city in ruins. Police have been injured in large numbers; they were even forced to abandon the East Precinct. A six-block area of downtown Seattle was occupied by hooligans for weeks, resulting in multiple shootings.

To commemorate the mayhem,

King County Metro unveiled new artwork Thursday that will be displayed on buses and Metro facilities around the county.

The artwork, created by three Metro employees, features images from the Black Lives Matter movement.

It’s nice to know that at least we will still have art, even after composers have been canceled and music abolished in the name of wokeness.

No society ever embraced its own decline with more enthusiasm.
