The George Floyd, Jr. Narrative Unraveled

I wonder what Derek Chauvin is thinking these days?

He’s the former Minneapolis cop who became the Scapegoat Number One after George Floyd—sorry, St. George Floyd—died from a Fentanyl overdose while resisting arrest in May 2020.

As all the world knows, that is not how The Narrative tells it. Witness Wikipedia, that Great Repository of Approved Narratives. “George Perry Floyd Jr.,” it begins, “was an African-American man who was murdered by a police officer in Minneapolis, Minnesota, during an arrest made after a store clerk suspected Floyd may have used a counterfeit twenty-dollar bill, on May 25, 2020.”

“Murdered,” eh?  “May” have passed a counterfeit bill, you say?

Well, that’s what we were told.

It takes a long time for someone to be canonized in the Catholic Church. There is an official process to be followed. Some miracles have to be recorded. One moves from being denominated a Servus Dei, a “servant of God,” to the status of being Venerabilis, to Beatus, and finally Sanctus. It’s much easier and much quicker with our secular saints. All you need is a festering politically correct grievance, a compliant media, and a terrified justice system.

So it was with the woman-and-drug abusing felon George Perry Floyd Jr. His corpse was not cold before he was elevated to secular sainthood  and became the mascot for the Black Lives Matter hooligans who, over the course of a year or more, inflicted more than $2 billion of property damage, injured or maimed scores of people, and released a mesmerizing, racially fortified toxin into the atmosphere that addled the minds and hearts of all the beautiful people who run the country and from which we have yet to recover fully. Last week, on the occasion of Floyd’s birthday, Joe Biden prayed at the shrine, issuing an emetic White House statement “to honor his life and legacy” and urge us “to redeem the soul of America.”

Back in 2021, Derek Chauvin, along with three of his police colleagues, were offered up as sacrificial lambs by Minneapolis prosecutors. ChaUvin was slapped with federal and well as state convictions and, as I write, is rotting in an Arizona prison for the murder of Floyd.

Alas for The Narrative, a large wrench has just been thrown into the works. The wrench itself was fabricated by Amy Sweasy, a former prosecutor in Hennepin County where Chauvin and his unfortunate colleagues were tried. But the fuel that hurled the wrench was provided by that indispensable public servant, Tucker Carlson.

You won’t read about it in The New York Times or The Washington Post. Neither CNN nor MSNBC will devote airtime to the story. But other, less establishment  outlets have it. Here, for example, is Alpha News, with the eyebrow-raising headline “Court docs reveal ‘extreme’ public pressure on prosecutors in George Floyd case.”

“New court documents,” the story begins, “expose the ‘extreme pressure’ prosecutors faced in Hennepin County to charge Derek Chauvin and three other former Minneapolis police officers in the death of George Floyd. Several attorneys opposed charging the ‘other three’ officers and withdrew from the case due to ‘professional and ethical rules.’”

Hmm. I’d wager Derek Chauvin would find that interesting.

But not as interesting as what follows.

During her deposition, Sweasy also discussed a revealing conversation she said she had the day after Floyd’s death when she asked Hennepin County Medical Examiner Dr. Andrew Baker about the autopsy.

“I called Dr. Baker early that morning to tell him about the case and to ask him if he would perform the autopsy on Mr. Floyd,” she explained.

“He called me later in the day on that Tuesday and he told me that there were no medical findings that showed any injury to the vital structures of Mr. Floyd’s neck. There were no medical indications of asphyxia or strangulation,” Sweasy said, according to the transcript.

“He said to me, ‘Amy, what happens when the actual evidence doesn’t match up with the public narrative that everyone’s already decided on?’ And then he said, ‘This is the kind of case that ends careers.’”

It is worth noting that when he was testifying in court, Andrew Baker told a different tale, opining that Floyd’s death was a homicide.

Which version is true? “No medical indications of asphyxia or strangulation” or “homicide”? Watch Tucker Carlson unpack the episode together with the writer Vince Everett Ellison. The bottom line? “It turns out the whole George Floyd story was a lie.”  What will happen? Nothing. The truth will be ignored, swept under the rug. discounted utterly. Derek Chauvin, meanwhile, will languish in jail.

Many people, myself included, like to prattle on about the importance of “the rule of law” and other such nostrums. The case of George Floyd’s demise reminds us that that we live in a country governed by the rule of narrative, an entirely different dispensation.

  1. An interesting tidbit is the Left had been trying to light this fire for months if not years before May 25, 2020. But every time before then and a couple later incidents the ingredients just weren’t there; the dead perp was found to have drawn his own weapon, the arresting LEO was Black and with a sterling record, the perp wasn’t Black, the LEO was so obviously in the wrong everyone got behind prosecution, etc.

    Then along came Saint George to provide just the perfect tale…

  2. Definitely one of this country’s problems is the move away from the rule of law to the rule by the woke upon the non-woke–the rule of neo-Marxists against all. Yes, that is a huge issue.

    But the elephant in the room is something John Derbyshire wrote about in Taki’s magazine, but also a topic which I believe caused him to be fired as a contributor to National Review. It is a topic the online magazine American Renaissance deals with regularly. It is the ultimate taboo–the subject that must NEVER be brought up, never uttered, never whispered, or even thought in the confines of one’s own home.

    What percentage of the population commits 50% of violent crime? What demographic group, despite decades of Affirmative Action and trillions of dollars in welfare and public assistance, continues to significantly under perform by every metric and performance indicator?

    The top Democrat cities run by this ethnic demographic are the most dangerous (highest homicide rate), the most dysfunctional and have the highest rate of public assistance. And yet, to merely point out these appalling statistics, one is considered the most evil and reprehensible person alive–all for acknowledging the obvious.

    George Floyd was a thug, a criminal, drug addict and all round loser who died from an overdose of drugs. Yet, he has been lionized and canonized as the best among us. All for a narrative that is so twisted and so contorted that only Lucifer himself could have written it.

    The day will come when we will finally have to deal with the question–the elephant in the room.

  3. But if it wasn’t this way what would all those poor race hustlers like Jesse Jackson annd Obama do with themselves?

  4. It was obvious from the beginning that Chauvin was innocent of any crime. Floyd’s autopsy showed that he died of heart failure. The racist Minnesota attorney general brought in an army of “expert” witnesses who contradicted themselves and claimed Floyd died of strangulation. This was purely and simply a political prosecution to appease black activists and the Floyd family (who knew he wasn’t a saint but wanted money - they got it.)

  5. Avatar for Huey65 Huey65 says:

    And our incoming Chairman of The Joint Chiefs of Staff is on record and video whining about what a horrible thing the “murder” of George Floyd was, and how he, himself, has suffered from racism his entire life despite the fact that we was able to rise and become a Four Star General. Are we screwed or what?
