Is CNN Complicit in these 21 Deaths?

2020 July 7
by bc3b

At least 21 people died in the aftermath of George Floyd’d death. Like the Afghanistan War, these protests are setting new records for duration. One major difference between these and the protests/riots of the 1960s and 1970s is that those riots were covered by responsible, ethical journalists who wanted to see the violence, destruction and deaths end as quickly as possible.

Today’s protests/riots/looting/killings are covered by people from CNN, who are the farthest thing from honest and ethical. They fan the flames just so they can get people to watch their pathetic excuse for a news network. Isn’t CNN just as complicit in the deaths of these 21 people, ranging from David Dorn, a 77 -year old retired police captain, to Secoriea Turner, an 8-year  old Atlanta girl, as it was in the murder of the five Dallas law enforcement officers following Michael Brown’s death?

Black lives matter, and that should include the lives tragically lost in the riots following the horrific police killing of George Floyd. The riots have destroyed black livesblack livelihoods, and black monuments. As Black Lives Matter activists continue to repeat the names of unarmed black men and women killed by police, Americans should respond with the litany of victims killed in the George Floyd riots.

Some of these victims died at the hands of police, but in every case, the riots created the tense situations that led to their deaths. Left-leaning commentators continue to insist the protests were “mostly peaceful,” and it is true that the vast majority of people in the streets — especially during the day — were peaceful protesters. However, many instigators used large crowds as an opportunity to loot, vandalize, and destroy. Portland journalist Andy Ngo has explained how antifa instigators weaponize such situations, and some “Boogaloo” extremists may have done the same.

While the protests were peaceful, extensive riots across America emphatically were not. These riots came with a death toll of at least 21 people.

Say their names!

    Mayor Beetlejuice blames guns for the weekend’s shootings in Chicago:

    https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/with-murders-up-nearly-80-in-chicago-last-month-lori-lightfoot-blames-guns

    Just like pit bulls, I guess guns have a mind of their own.

    I was about to congratulate JimNorCal on beating me on predicting the Chicago weekend shooting toll until I checked the final count.

    He had: 68 shootings and 15 deaths. I had 101 shootings and 19 deaths. The final total was 87 shootings and 17 deaths. We were evenly off on the deaths – 2 away; I was 14 away on the shootings while NorCalJim was 19 off. Nice try Jim, but with a strong finish, the bros didn’t let me down.

    A guy walks into a bar in West Virginia and orders a white wine.

    All the rednecks sitting around the bar look up from their beer and sippin’ whiskey, expecting to see some pitiful Yankee from the north.

    The bartender says, “Y’all tain’t from ’round here, aren’tcha?”

    The guy says, “No, I’m from Canada.”

    The bartender says, “What’cha do in Canada?”

    The guy says, “I’m a taxidermist.”

    The bartender says, “A taxidermist? What in the hell’sa taxidermist? Y’all drive a taxi?”

    “No,” says the Canadian “A taxidermist doesn’t drive a taxi, he mounts animals.”

    The bartender grins and hollers, “It’s okay boys. He’s one of us!

    The Blizzard and the Blonde

    It was snowing heavily and blowing to the point that visibility was almost zero when the little Blonde got off work.

    She made her way to her car and wondered how she was going to make it home. She sat in her car while it warmed up and thought about her situation.

    She finally remembered her daddy’s advice that if she got caught in a blizzard, she should wait for a snow-plow to come by and follow it. That way she would not get stuck in a snow drift.

    This made her feel much better…and sure enough, in a little while, a snow-plow went by and she started to follow it. As she followed the snow-plow she was feeling very smug as they continued and she was not having any problem with the blizzard conditions.

    After an hour, she was surprised when the snow-plow stopped and the driver got out and came back to her car and signaled for her to roll down her window.

    The snow-plow driver wanted to know if she was alright as she had been following him for a long time. She said that she was fine and told him of her daddy’s advice to follow a snow-plow when caught in a blizzard.

    The driver replied that it was OK with him and she could continue if she wanted, but he was done with the Wal-Mart parking lot, and was going over to Target next.

    Will they start pulling down statues of Jesus? On private land (churches)?
    Will churchgoers meekly acquiesce?

    “Will churchgoers meekly acquiesce?”

    I suggest the church goers turn the other cheek on the other guy, declare it a protest, and have at it. The choir can sing ‘Battle Hymn of the Republic’ as the festivities continue in the pews.

    That Facebook story is important.
    Institutions are crumbling. Target, Chick-Fil-A, NFL/NBA/MLB/NASCAR, Facebook, city councils, and so on are kneeling. Some happily, some more or less reluctantly.
    We, “the base”, the actual citizens of this nation, are being cast adrift.
    The goal is very clear. We are NOT to be allowed to have private thoughts, we are NOT to be allowed to select our leaders by governing, our voices are to be suppressed and we/our-families/our-culture are to be crushed.

    I didn’t pull even. We were even on the number of deaths, but I was closer on the number of shootings (14 to 19). Your Sunday was like Bubba Wallace’s: No trophy.

    I knew the bros would come through for me. Think what the death toll would be every weekend in Chicago if the bros could shoot straight.

    True story: When I was in the Air Force at Wright-Patterson my unit was comprised of enlisted men who fell into one of two categories: college graduates or Project 10,000 airmen. Project 10,000 was comprised of men and women who the Air Force wouldn’t normally accept (low IQs, poor test scores, etc.).

    Two Project 10,000 troops were Bobby Fields and “H. Rap” Traigg. The evening after Bobby Fields was discharged, he and H. Rap (who was still serving) decided to rob the NCO Club on the base. One – H. Rap I believe shot the clerk at the NCO Club. Fortunately, the clerk had a thick pad in his breast pocket and the gun was a small caliber (.22 or .25). What Bobby didn’t realize was that the military are subject to the UCMJ for 48 hours after discharge. The next PCS for these two fine gentlemen was an Army post in Kansas called Leavenworth.

    Omar sweetie you are a tad late, and LD is clueless. With the Fed buying Corp Bonds and stock ETF’s thru BlackRock the price mechanism is no more. Without price signals capitalism has gone to sleep in the markets. Its part of the reason that Market&Broad is sky high and Main Street is so low.

    I doubt they’d go the suicide route again, although it’s a long-time Clinton favorite. Team Hillary is likely planning a tragic accident right now.

    I have always enjoyed debate and discussion where even people who disagree 100% can state their case, and part reasonably amicably…even if neither persuaded the other. One of my oldest and dearest friends is on the opposite side of almost every issue, yet we love and respect each other…even as we try to tear each other’s premises apart.

    Enter the Modern Left. If you don’t agree with them INSTANTLY they may (if you’re “lucky”) decide “You just don’t understand.” This is the extent of their “mercy”, granting you limited leniency based on your being just to stupid to instantly grasp the 100% awesomeness of their wokeness.

    Ah, but if you persist in trying to state ANYTHING other than complete acquiescence to their religion (BLM, Global Warming, Socialism, “White Silence Is Violence”, America was NEVER great, etc.) then they switch to “You are a _____” (insert horrible term).

    They never really try to explain their position…they just label you and move on. If the Democrats gain control of the Presidency AND Congress, then soon…VERY soon…they will be able to report your views to the proper authorities…as “Hate speech”. Entire armies of “Karens” are poised to help cleanse America of dissenting views.

    every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has
    been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing
    day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists
    except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”

    Me, I suspect 96 days from now. That is how long I figure it will take till they bring her in for an arraignment. A drunk driver of course the cause of death. Till then they will pump as much data from her as possible.

    25 – They can just make up anything that want in terms of what she “says”…especially if she’s not around. Who’s going to question the fbi’s notes or 302’s….etc oh sure 4 years from now someone may get around to extracting them and find out there bogus or suddenly gone missing, but nobody will pay any price for that…if …and it’s a big if it ever got that far. One need only point at the flynn case for example, though there are hundreds of other examples.
