Former ESPN Sports Writer Jason Whitlock: MSM Narrative About George Floyd A “Race Hoax”

Former ESPN Sports Writer Jason Whitlock: MSM Narrative About George Floyd A "Race Hoax"

Former ESPN sportswriter Jason Whitlock argued that the recently released bodycam footage from two officers involved in the arrest of George Floyd shows that the mainstream racial narrative surrounding Floyd’s death was a “race hoax” used to divide America.

“Leaked video exposes George Floyd’s death as tragedy and race hoax used to divide us,” states the headline to Whitlock’s opinion piece published by Outkick yesterday.

The footage, released by TDM was taken from the body cameras of Officers Thomas Lane and Alex Kueng after they responded to a call that Floyd was allegedly using counterfeit money at Cup Foods. The footage shows Floyd acting in an erratic manner that prompts police to question if he is intoxicated and includes Floyd resisting attempts to get him in the back of the police car, citing his “claustrophobia,” “anxiety,” previously having “COVID,” and his difficulty breathing. Floyd eventually begins yelling that he “can’t breathe” and saying he’d prefer to be on the ground than in the car.

Jason Whitlock argued that the footage suggests the officers involved were “appropriate and restrained given Floyd’s level of resistance and bizarre conduct,” adding that it also “reasonably explains how and why Floyd wound up on the ground with multiple officers restraining him.”

Jason Whitlock emphasized that the video “does not justify officer Derek Chauvin kneeling on Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes.” However, he argued, the video offers “context” for “why Chauvin would be reluctant to believe Floyd’s ‘I can’t breathe’ cries,” citing his repetition of false claims and “panicked, disoriented, desperate and totally non-compliant” behavior.

“The NBA, the NFL and Major League Baseball chose to drape themselves in Black Lives Matter symbols and view all negative encounters between black people and white people as examples of white supremacy,” Jason Whitlock wrote, saying that life is “far more complicated” than its portrayed on social media.

“What happened to George Floyd is more complicated than the substance-less assertion that Derek Chauvin acted out of racial animus,” Jason Whitlock writes. Chauvin abused his power. His defense lawyers will argue he was baited into abusing his power by Floyd.”

Here are Jason Whitlock’s takeaways from the footage:

  • Floyd’s behavior escalated a routine arrest into a possible abuse of force.
  • The George Floyd case is not a race crime. No rational person can watch that footage and conclude the police were motivated by Floyd’s black race.
  • It’s going to be virtually impossible to convict former officers Thomas Lane, J. Alexander Kueng and Tou Thao of any crime.
  • It will be equally difficult to convict Chauvin of murder.

Cuban Community Push Back Against “Mafia Tactics” By Local BLM

Cuban Community Push Back Against "Mafia Tactics" By Local BLM Demands

A Black Lives Matter group has begun threatening local businesses in Louisville, Kentucky, and telling them if they don’t give protection money, their shops will be looted.

The Cuban community planned a rally yesterday at NuLu restaurant in response to Black Lives Matter demands.

Courier Journal:

Members of Louisville’s Cuban community plan to gather Sunday in support of a NuLu restaurant owner who says he was threatened by Black Lives Matter protesters during a recent demonstration.

Fernando Martinez, a partner of the Olé Restaurant Group, was one of dozens of business owners in the downtown Louisville district who recently received a letter from protesters laying out demands that aim to improve diversity in the area, which is known for its locally-owned shops and restaurants.

Martinez has publicly denounced the demands on Facebook, calling them “mafia tactics” used to intimidate business owners. And on Thursday, a small group of protesters confronted him outside his newest restaurant, La Bodeguita de Mima, on East Market Street.

“There comes a time in life that you have to make a stand and you have to really prove your convictions and what you believe in,” Martinez wrote in his Facebook post. “… All good people need to denounce this. How can you justified (sic) injustice with more injustice?” More

Why isn’t this viewed as extortion? And where are the local, state, and federal authorities investigating this as a crime?

Portland Rioter Throws Incendiary Device, Gets Hit With Pepper Balls & Arrested (Video)

A rioter jumps over the barrier and lights some type of incendiary device to throw at the Portland federal courthouse. He is shot with pepper balls after he hurls the lit projectile.

Here’s a photograph of the man who jumped over the fence and lit some type of device to throw at the Portland federal courthouse. Well, at least he is already dressed in the appropriate outfit for prison.

The person in question has been apprehended by the authorities. He tried to climb up the light pole to escape federal officers only to get stuck there. The officers had to bring in a ladder to get him down.

Start prosecuting and convicting these idiots for using an improvised explosive device while in the commission of a felony while on federal property.

Violent Rioters Torch Courthouses, Attack Police, Chant Racial Slurs

Violent rioters torched courthouses in Colorado and California last night as far-left riots shook other cities across the country.

“We ask organizers of tonight’s protest to help maintain peace,” the Oakland Police Department tweeted. “Currently, some demonstrators in the area of 17th & Lakeside are breaking windows and chanting racial slurs at residents.”

“Agitators within the crowd of demonstrators have set the Alameda County Superior Courthouse on fire,” the department added. “Please avoid the area. We are calling for peace and to have safe spaces and safe places for tonight’s demonstration.”

“Fireworks and dangerous projectiles are some of the items agitators used to assault officers. We ask the organizers of tonight’s demonstration to work with us, calling for peace and help us provide safe spaces and safe places for demonstrators.”

In Colorado, the Aurora PD appealed to protesters “please remain peaceful,” which did nothing to stop rioters from carrying out acts of violence.

“The protestors are no longer peaceful as they are now throwing objects, shining lasers, and shooting large fireworks at officers,” the department tweeted. “We now have protestors that have broken windows to the courthouse and are inside of the building, attempting to start fires.”

Violent Extremists Injure Nearly 2 Dozen Seattle Cops, Attack Police Station With ‘Explosives’

Violent extremists injured nearly two dozen Seattle Police Department officers on Sunday during an assault on the department.

Rioters emerged from the group and began spray painting and attempting to disable security cameras and a fenced perimeter around the precinct, the Seattle Police Department said in a statement. “At least one person breached the precinct’s fence line. Moments later, a device exploded leaving an 8-inch hole in the side of the precinct.”

“Over the next several hours, a smaller crowd wound through Capitol Hill, continuing to throw bricks, rocks, mortars and other explosives at officers,” the department added. “As of 10 pm, police had made 45 arrests in connection with today’s riot for assaults on officers, failure to disperse, and obstruction.”

Trump, Barr Expand Operation Legend Sending Hundreds Of Federal Agents Into Violence Plagued Cities

Trump, Barr Expand Operation Legend Sending Hundreds Of Federal Agents Into Violence Plagued Cities

President Trump and AG Barr announced that they were expanding Operation Legend into two additional cities that have been deemed to be “plagued by recent violence.”

“Operation Legend is a sustained, systematic, and coordinated law enforcement initiative in which federal law enforcement agencies work in conjunction with state and local law enforcement officials to fight violent crime,” the Department of Justice said in a statement yesterday. “Operation Legend is named after four-year-old LeGend Taliferro, who was shot and killed while he slept early in the morning of June 29 in Kansas City.”

The operation launched a couple of weeks ago in Kansas City and is now expanding into Chicago and Albuquerque, both of which have seen significant increases in violent crime. Barr directed the FBI, U.S. Marshals Service, DEA, and ATF to significantly ramp up federal resources to the two Democrat-controlled cities.

The federal operation in Chicago will include:

  • The Department of Justice will supplement state and local law enforcement agencies by sending over 100 federal investigators from the FBI, DEA, and ATF to the city.
  • The investigatory efforts will be advanced by more than 100 members of the U.S. Marshals Service Great Lakes Task Force, which will direct violent fugitive apprehension operations within Chicago to identify wanted gang members, violent criminals, and firearms violators.
  • The Department of Homeland Security’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) are also committing at least 100 agents, already stationed in Chicago, to Operation Legend.  HSI agents will conduct investigations into gangs, narcotics traffickers, violent offenders, and firearms traffickers.
  • To further support the Chicago Police Department in reducing violent crime, ATF has deployed its national Crime Gun Intelligence Mobile Command Vehicle to assist local law enforcement with analysis of crime scenes and spent shell casings through the National Integrated Ballistic Information Network (NIBIN).
  • The Bureau of Justice Assistance will make available $3.5 million in funding to reimburse the Chicago Police Department and City of Chicago for the work of local law enforcement on the federal task forces supporting Operation Legend’s violent crime reduction efforts. The COPS Office has also made $9.375 million available to the Chicago Police Department to fund the hiring of 75 officers.

The federal operation in Albuquerque will include:

  • The Department of Justice will supplement state and local law enforcement agencies by sending more than 25 federal investigators from the FBI, DEA, and ATF to the city.
  • Up to 10 HSI agents will assist with the efforts in Albuquerque, as well.
  • The Department of Justice has also made available over $1.5 million in COPS Hiring Grants to the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department to onboard five deputies and to support additional federal task force officers committed to violent crime reduction efforts. Additionally, the COPS Office has made $9.74 million available to the Albuquerque Police Department to fund the hiring of 40 officers.
  • Separately, the Bureau of Justice Assistance has made available $1.4 million to reimburse the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office and Albuquerque Police Department for the work of local law enforcement on the federal task forces supporting Operation Legend’s violent crime reduction efforts.

“The most basic responsibility of government is to protect the safety of our citizens,” Barr said. “Today, we have extended Operation Legend to Chicago and Albuquerque to protect the residents of those cities from senseless acts of deadly violence by targeting those involved in gang activity and those who use guns to commit violent crime.”
