Perversion of Justice
By Jim Bratten – 4/26/21
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) showed up in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota with her security detail and the usual sneer on her face. “We’ve got to not only stay in the streets and we have got to fight for justice … and I am very hopeful … that we are going to get a verdict that says guilty, guilty, guilty … and if we don’t, we cannot go away.”
Responding to a question from the press, she continued her rant and doubled down. “Well, we gotta stay in the streets 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.”
“More confrontational” — as if BLM and Antifa need to burn more buildings, assault more police officers and beat up more bystanders. Yet, Maxine incites more violence and urges more rioting. The judge in the Chauvin courtroom rightly accused her of showing “no respect for the rule of law.” Even alleged president Joe Biden exploited the situation, making it worse by calling for “a certain verdict … the right verdict.”
Speaker Nancy Pelosi, adding her wandering two cents worth after the Chauvin verdict, said: “Thank you, George Floyd, for sacrificing your life for justice; for being there to call out to your mom. How heartbreaking was that? Call out for your mom, ‘I can’t breathe.’ But, because of you, and because of thousands, millions of people around the world, who came out for justice, your name will always be synonymous with justice.”
“Floyd” will be synonymous with “crime.”
Our entire justice system has been corrupted by the identity politics of a single political party. Jury members were intimidated, harassed and threatened; warned that if Derek Chauvin wasn’t found guilty on all counts, the threats against them, body and property, would be realized horrifically. The Leftist newspaper, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, even released detailed bios of the jurors.
Martin Luther King, Jr. is rolling over in his grave. None of what he marched for and demonstrated against is relevant today. The entire Leftist narrative has nothing to do with the “content of one’s character.” It uses hatred and racism to pervert justice.
