    Muslim clerics don't need to say anything, they don't have drag queen Quran readings or "gender affirmation" BS in their schools... not many Pride parades or rainbow flags flying atop minarets either.
    It is by the goodness of God that in our country we have those three unspeakably precious things: freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and the prudence never to practice either of them. Mark ​Twain

    Floyd whimpered "I can't breathe!" several times during that incident. Chauvin should have responded appropriately.

    Being a thug (as Floyd certainly was) does not excuse these horrific actions.

    Rubbish.If he couldn't breathe he couldn't keep talking, and his blood oxygen levels was 98%. He had a drug overdose, and that is the facts. He ate a bunch of dope when he saw the cops pull up.

    What you're bringing to light is the right wing in their own way is just as spineless as the left wing.
    I'm not a fan of the JWs theology, but one has to admire their willingness to stand up to totalitarian regimes, something most Christians used to be famous for. It's just time to acknowledge the fact that without Christians with a spine this country went down fast. I doubt it will recover; the Davos Set and Wall Street have decided the U.S. is going to follow the Red Chinese govt. model, and there is no real opposition to that operation.

    A lot of drunks playing around with ridiculous gun collections and posturing on the innernetz playing 'Who Can Be The Most Libertarian N Stuff' is just silly kid crap. IF they were effective we would never have gotten to this point in the first place.

    Did you stop to think that he could, perhaps, exhale just a very small amount--enough to spit out a few words, with considerable difficulty--but not enough to sustain life?

    To reiterate: I am certainly not in the same camp with those who wish to make a hero of sorts out of George Floyd--he was about as far from that as, say, Canada's Northern Territories are from Antarctica--but I do not condone the actions of this officer, either. (By the way, he is now serving prison time for his actions here.)

    No matter the serious impact upon people, society's and cultures - they have NOTHING to say.

    Pride -LGBTQ - abusing children - Gender pronouns - men using girls toilets - abortion - Drag Queens perversely educating young children on sex etc etc

    NOT ONE WORD from the religious leaders?? !!! why?
    Maybe they are saying a lot but MSM doesn't broadcast it?
