OF COURSE IT WAS A LIE.
“This is bracing. Here is the police body cam footage of the Minneapolis police officers’ encounter with George Floyd in the nearly eight minutes between the time they first engaged him, and put him on the ground and suppressed his neck:
Early, one of the officers has a gun on him, and tells him repeatedly to put his hands on the wheel. Floyd says, “I got shot the same way before.” Well then, says the cop, put your hands on the wheel when I tell you to.
The police tell him repeatedly to get out of the car, but he keeps saying, “Please don’t shoot me, please don’t shoot me.” Yet he refuses to obey them. At the 1:28 moment, Floyd says, “I just lost my mom, man.” (He was lying about that.)
At the 1:51 point, a female voice is heard saying, “Stop resisting!”
Floyd continues to resist arrest as they’re trying to cuff him. At about the 2:12 point, the officer says again, “Stop resisting!” …
George Floyd is dead today almost entirely because of George Floyd. Watch that bodycam video above (it ends just as he is on the ground with Chauvin’s knee in his neck), and tell me how there is any other reasonable conclusion? All he had to do was obey the police, who gave him chance after chance after chance. They did not come down on him hard, with the neck restraint, because he was black. They came down on him because he hysterically resisted arrest, for at least eight minutes.
The media’s narrative is false. All the George Floyd riots, all the George Floyd protests, have been based on a lie. That lie, though, has become so fundamental to the left’s narrative that disbelieving it will be impossible for countless people.
Watch the video. It really is shocking to realize how badly we have been misled by the media, by politicians, by celebrities, and by activists.”
Tawana Brawley was a lie.
Rodney King was a lie.
The Duke Lacrosse scandal was a lie.
The Jena 6 was a lie.
St. Skittles was a lie.
“Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” was a lie.
Deandre Harris was a lie.
Jussie Smollett and Bubba Wallace lied.
Every incident no matter what the context is seized on to push the same narrative of evil white people killing poor innocent Black people. It is always the same progressives jonesing for Emmett Till. The narrative flies around the world before the truth has the time to get its pants on.
