He was an angel with 1) wings, 2) a halo, and 3) God’s Fingers of sunlight.

After all, what’s a little counterfeiting among unconsenting adults? St. George was merely distributing improvised stimulus checks, practicing Bidenomics avant la lettre. As the science of Modern Monetary Theory teaches us, “Money printer go BRRRRRRRR.”

    The Canonization of St. George of Floyd

    Some would say deification…..

  4. Hubbub says:

    In all fairness and honesty, George Floyd brought on his own death – he alone is responsible. But we must pass the blame and Chauvin’s Knee did the trick. Geesh, these SJWs pick the worst of the worst to hold up as martyrs. Do they have no sense of shame at all? When the Saints go marchin’ in, will George be among that number?

    “Why can’t they use a black male who looks respectable? Why do they insist on martyring the worst examples?”

    That’s a feature, not a bug. Indeed, to the left, the more disreputable the black male, the more suitable for deification. “The last shall be first and the first last” is now ” the best shall be worst and the worst best”.

  6. Truly, the forces of the Antichrist are now ascendant in the world.

  7. Anon7 says:

    It’s like half the country has a kind of death wish alcoholism, the stage where the alcoholic drinks himself all the way to the bottom. Like they say, if you still live in a house, you haven’t hit bottom. If you have anything but the filthy clothes on your back, you still have a way to go.

    That’s what white liberals are like. It’s as if they have some horrible addiction and they can’t stop until they’ve spent every last $trillion they can print, every last cent of personal equity, on every last PoC they can find or invite in.

    I’m not calling for sympathy for Leftists. I’m just saying that we’re in a (constitutional) relationship with these people, and their addiction to black worship will destroy everything we’ve built.

    While he wasn’t an angel he didn’t deserve to die over passing a phony $20 bill. This is U.S. currency, let the Feds deal with it. Not your problem local PD’s. Let them all print out bogus bills to their hearts’ content. Things will only change when the financial system collapses.

    Like Trayvon, I bet it has something to do with the phenotype, though the departed was wildly less photogenic in most of the other holy relics that have been circulating. It’s like the flip of the Evelyn McHale photo, triggering some nodule of some brains that registers saintly vibes. Plus with that canonical art-brut selfie (above), there’s extratextual fetishization poured onto the legend of modern-monetary theorist Georgius Floydiensis.

    When you understand that the mainline media is a collaborative project between unmarried cubicle women and parochial gay men the preoccupations of that media make more sense.

  12. @JimDandy

    “murals of John Wayne Gacy”

    Place the Gacy murals along side the many urban masterpieces of George Floyd. Make Gacy the face of the arisen alt-right movement which makes sense because the FBI assets who are started it are as gay as the late Mr. Gacy who thou art in heaven making amateur porno with George Floyd.

  13. How did we get to this place? Hint: we didnt do it to ourselves.

    Remember, the Floyd propaganda was aimed toward real blacks and not half white/half black Obama style mochas. Obama had a real hard time working with authentically black politicians in Illinois and wasn’t easily accepted into their reindeer games. Floyd was very much the anti-Obama: not very articulate and would’ve made Harvard law students very uncomfortable to be around. Floyd would never have been nominated to lead the Harvard Law Review.

    Why can’t they use a black male who looks respectable? Why do they insist on martyring the worst examples?

    Because decent black men don’t get int this kind of trouble. Because Blacks aren’t really being “abused” by the system. So it’ll always be some lowlife.

  18. Wilkey says:

    It would be really funny now (and not entirely improbable) if they happened to match George Floyd’s DNA to that of some cold case murderer. If they did I’m sure someone somewhere would bury the evidence, but here’s hoping. Hey, the guy’s already dead, so we wouldn’t even need to prosecute him. And his heirs are rich, so the victim’s family could make a nice civil suit our of it.

  24. @anon

    Why do they insist on martyring the worst examples?

    “Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.”

    ― Theodore Dalrymple

  25. How long until a hate hoax has St. George Floyd’s murals get graffiti on them?

  26. @Kylie

    “The last shall be first and the first last” is now ” the best shall be worst and the worst best”.

    Minnesotan Robert Zimmerman was most prophetic but not in a way he or anyone else back in the day would have anticipated.

  27. The canonization of St. George is a splendid example of the moral and spiritual bankruptcy of these quislings who would use the death of a drug addled, career criminal to attack the foundations of Western Civilization.

  28. So easy that not one judge in the entire country will dare do it.

    Why do so many people on the conspiratorial right assume that sheltered white liberals are cold-blooded rational thinkers akin to Joseph Stalin?

    Do you have some hard data to back up your unlikely assertion that those who promote mushy, sentimental views have Machiavellian agendas?

    From what I can tell Floyd was a very annoying low-level criminal of the type that wet liberals tend to identify with. To the rest of us, he’s one of those incredible annoying, stupid low-lifes that we would love to cross the street to avoid.

    The leftist exhortation against “criminalizing black life” is an accurate reflection of so much typical negro behavior being criminal. Natural law itself is a criminalization of black life because savagery is criminal by nature.

    Holding up serial felons like Floyd is the point. Floyd is representative of typical blacks.

    I’ve done a couple hours of research trying to find a single case of a cop being convicted for causing the death of someone in the throes of “excited delirium.”

    Couldn’t find a single one.

    There’s a lot of commentary about how police use ED as a defense. And plenty of opinions that said defense should not be allowed. Including several fringe opinions which say it’s not even a real thing (despite it being an accepted thing among the National Association of Medical Examiners).

    But the Dallas DA didn’t even “charge” the cops in this case of Tony Timpa which seemed a hell of a lot more questionable than the George Floyd death.

  40. Redman says:

    I really hope someone is saving this Pelosi clip so future historians can document how America ended.

    It captures everything future humans will want to know about 2020 (the year psychosis presented in the US body politic). Particularly the masks worn by the fearful pols, to protect against a flu for which they’d already been vaccinated.

    Somebody painted BLM on one of those old green mail boxes. I was tempted to go down one night and add an “ow” and an “e”, but you never know how may security cameras are around. The city or the PO actually repainted it after a while.

    Great comment!

    Violent, stupid, irresponsible, made absolutely no positive contribution to humanity in his entire life, and in the process of killing himself caused enough trouble to destroy the country. He’s the literal personification of the story of blacks in America.

    Even more importantly, he’s the proxy, the stand-in, the surrogate, the frontman, for the real owners of this country. And their ambition has always been to own the country so they can destroy it. The George Floyds were just one weapon in their arsenal.

    Mission Accomplished! Now what? Do they even know? Have they even thought that far?

    Or is there thinking geared completely and exclusively for infiltration, subversion, betrayal, destruction and death only, and not at all for competent social management?

    Judging from what passes as education for these people, it sure looks like it.

    From this perspective The Great Reset is yet more propganda designed to conceal the fact that they really don’t know what they’re doing and don’t care. It very well may be.

    BLM’s martyrs are the worst savage criminal zero losers alive . They prey on everyone & everything around them . All these fallen angels have a common denominator in their deaths : resisting arrest . If these lifelong criminals would have just gotten cuffed, gone along with the arrest like they had 50 times before: they’d BE ALIVE. Of course , it’s the fault of the police officers who try daily to wrangle these zoo animals . It was Derrick Chauvin’s fault Saint Fentynal Floyd croaked, not the mix of Fentynal , meth, and whatever other drugs that could kill a cow plus COVID-19 and health issues. Police Officer has become the WORST job on the planet. LEAVE THE CITIES NOW WHITE MAN – the ( black) MOB wants you DEAD.

    What opinion polling has not captured well is whether white liberals will change the behaviors — like opting for segregated schools and neighborhoods — that reinforce racial inequality. Even as the outcry over Mr. Floyd’s death has raised awareness of it, other trends tied to the pandemic have only exacerbated that inequality. That has been true not just as Black families and workers have been disproportionately hurt by the pandemic, but also as white students have fared better amid remote education and as white homeowners have gained wealth in a frenzied housing market.

    In a national sample of white Americans this year, Jennifer Chudy, a political scientist at Wellesley College, found that even the most racially sympathetic were more likely to endorse limited, private actions. These included educating oneself about racism or listening to people of color, rather than, for example, choosing to live in a racially diverse community or bringing racial issues to the attention of elected officials and policymakers.
