I then reminded you that the Sisters stand on the side of an “educated citizenry”, while the mass media stands on the side of a “compliant citizenry”—and then I asked which of these two sides you were going to stand with and support?
This wasn’t a hypothetical question, that’s a supposition or proposed explanation made on the basis of limited evidence as a starting point for further investigation—rather it asks you to examine within yourself if you’re a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities—or if you’re a person who lacks the courage to do or endure dangerous or unpleasant things—with the first type of person being known as a “hero”, and the second being a “coward”.
Right now there’s a simple test you can perform to show which of these two types of people you are—all it takes is for you to proclaim as loudly as you can, to as many people as you know, and as often as possible the words: “Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin is an innocent man!”—which is nothing more than a simple proclamation of truth every “educated citizen” knows is factual—because “one of the most sacred principles in the American criminal justice system holds that a defendant is innocent until proven guilty”—and though accused, officer Chauvin has not been proven to have committed any crime at all—and if you do, proves that you’re a “hero”.
Opposing these facts and truths are mass media deluded “compliant citizens” screaming “Police officer Chauvin deliberately murdered George Floyd, and the video evidence proves it!”—video evidence that shows police officer Chauvin pressing his knee into the neck of Floyd for an extended period of time until this young black man’s life was ended—but whatever did cause Floyd to die, it most certainly wasn’t because of officer Chauvin’s knee pressing on his neck—a fact confirmed by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner, whose official findings state: “The autopsy revealed no physical findings that support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation. Mr. Floyd had underlying health conditions including coronary artery disease and hypertensive heart disease. The combined effects of Mr. Floyd being restrained by the police, his underlying health conditions and any potential intoxicants in his system likely contributed to his death”—which makes anyone proclaiming officer Chauvin is guilty a “coward”.
Battles between “educated citizens” wanting true justice and mass media driven “compliant citizens” wanting blood when sensational killings occur are nothing new in America—with one of the most noteworthy of them having occurred on the evening of 5 March 1770—which was when a lone British sentry was accosted by a mob of American colonial citizens—who was quickly joined by eight of his fellow soldiers that reinforced him—and as the angry mob around these soliders then grew to several hundred, who hurled snowballs, ice, and stones striking these soliders—these frightened soldiers opened fire killing five civilians—and today is now known as the Boston Massacre.
With there being hundreds of witnesses to this massacre, these soliders were quickly arrested and charged with murder—and their guilty verdicts were all assured because the mass media proclaimed the evidence of this crime was overwhelming and indisputable—evidence, however, not convincing enough for one Boston lawyer, no matter how many witnesses there were—and whose love of truth and fair justice caused him to risk his life, reputation and career and step forward to defend these despised soldiers every one else knew were guilty.
This courageous Boston lawyer first had the trial of these soliders delayed “so that passions could cool”—and during the first trial won the acquittal of these soliders’ commanding officer, Captain Thomas Preston, “because it was impossible to prove that he ordered his soldiers to open fire”—and in the second trial for the soldiers themselves, won acquittals for six of them, with the two who had fired directly into the crowd being convicted of the lesser charge of manslaughter, as the facts and reality showed they were nothing more than scared teenagers—an astounding feat accomplished for truth and justice by this Boston lawyer named John Adams—who later went on to become a Founding Father of America and the 2nd President of the United States—and whose stirring words to open the trial of these soldiers are as meaningful now as they were then:
Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.
It is more important that innocence be protected than it is that guilt be punished, for guilt and crimes are so frequent in this world that they cannot all be punished.
But if innocence itself is brought to the bar and condemned, perhaps to die, then the citizen will say, 'whether I do good or whether I do evil is immaterial, for innocence itself is no protection,' and if such an idea as that were to take hold in the mind of the citizen that would be the end of [all] security whatsoever.
I don’t know the America today where in Democrat Party ruled cities you can get arrested for opening a business, but not for burning one down—or where when calling a person innocent because they’ve not been convicted of any crime is now considered outrageous, at best, and racist, at worst—but I’m in good company, because the Founding Fathers of America would be hanging their heads in shame if they saw what’s now happening to the once great nation they created—one of the wisest of whom was Founding Father Benjamin Franklin—who upon exiting the Constitutional Convention that created the United States, was approached by a group of citizens asking what sort of government the delegates had created—and whose simple answer was: “A republic, if you can keep it”.
But sadly, today, is an American Republic that sees many of its cities gripped in senseless chaos and rioting due to the actions of “compliant citizen cowards”—and if to survive, desperately needs its “educated citizen heroes” to arise and take back control of their nation before it’s too late—all of whom should know like their Founding Fathers that nothing clarifies a man’s thoughts like staking his life on them—and is exactly what American Revolutionary War hero Patrick Henry did when he proclaimed before the British hanged him: “Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”.
