Ann Coulter: Thanks, Derek Chauvin Jurors! You’re Safe Now! WE AREN'T.

Earlier by Ann Coulter On Derek Chauvin: The Case Against The Mob  and Derek Chauvin, Human Sacrifice

To watch the hours of celebratory fist-pumping from government officials and black activists after the guilty verdicts against police officer Derek Chauvin this week, you’d think Minnesota had just won the NCAA tournament.

One man is dead and another will be spending up to 40 years in prison. How about Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison show a little dignity, with something like: “We had the trial; we’ve got a verdict; I’m not taking any questions”?

Nope! We got a one-hour spirit rally for the championship team. The key was teamwork. Our guys practiced every night—staying even after the gym had closed! We couldn’t have done it without the fans.

There wasn’t this much triumphalism when Ted Bundy was convicted! He murdered 30 women, escaped from jail twice, and killed again before finally being brought to trial. We didn’t have hours of gloating after they got the Green River Killer, and it took 20 years to catch him.

Maybe we’ve gotten less decorous in the past few decades. But how about celebrating the conviction of a gangbanger who killed an 8-year-old girl in a drive-by? Would the media be as giddy about that?

Not likely. Wild celebrations are in order only for the railroading of a cop.

Earlier, May 30, 2020: Even Right Abandoning Accused Minneapolis Cop—But They Shouldn't

The jury has found Derek Chauvin guilty on all three counts. It took fewer than 24 hours to reach a unanimous decision. I have argued all along that an acquittal was impossible, no matter what the evidence showed. No jury, anywhere in the United States, could have found Mr. Chauvin innocent after nearly a year of riots.

I had some hope that the jury might acquit on one or two of the more serious charges, but the guilty verdict was announced first on the most serious of the three, so the other two verdicts were inevitable. Under Minnesota law, Mr. Chauvin will be sentenced under only the most serious charge. It carries a maximum sentence of 40 years, but according to state guidelines, a first offence is supposed to get 12-1/2 years. Judge Peter Cahill said he would pass sentence eight weeks from now.

As the verdicts were read, the camera closed in on Mr. Chauvin for the first time since the trial began. He was wearing a mask, but appeared to show no emotion. He was led from the courtroom in handcuffs and will remain in custody.

Crowds had gathered in various places in Minneapolis to wait for the verdict. They wept, rejoiced, and fell into each other’s arms.

There are solid grounds to appeal the verdict. From the start, Mr. Chauvin’s lawyer, Eric Nelson, argued that it would be impossible to get a fair trial in Minneapolis because of the rioting and massive publicity. The judged refused to move the trial. Mr. Nelson will probably argue that there was prosecutorial misconduct. In closing arguments, the prosecution said that the defense’s arguments were “nonsense,” that Mr. Nelson was “shading the truth,” “misrepresenting facts,” putting words in witnesses’ mouths, and “creating Halloween stories.” Judge Cahill ruled that he had sufficiently admonished the prosecution for this.

The federal government can’t house and care for the horde of unaccompanied illegal-alien minors at the border, so President Biden has a solution: Send them to Red States [Biden administration considers flying migrants to states near the Canadian border for processing, by Nick Miroff, The Washington Post, March 20, 2021]. But some Republican governors are saying no. Their resistance to this illegal-alien dumping shows that the GOP/GAP is moving in the right direction. But much more must be done— above all opposing legal immigrationto prove Republicans are the America First party and stop the Great Replacement.

States that are resisting illegal-alien resettlement at this writing: Iowa, Montana, Nebraska, South Carolina, and South Dakota.

Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds, no fire breathing conservative, fired the opening salvo at Biden. “This is not our problem,” Reynolds told a local radio show:

“This is the president’s problem. He’s the one that has opened the border, and he needs to be responsible for this and he needs to stop it.”

[Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds Sets The Bar For Republicans To Refuse To Enable Biden’s Border Crisis, by Gabe Kaminsky, The Federalist, April 13, 2021]

Montana is squarely against resettlement, too. Attorney General Austin Knudsen told Fox News his state hasn’t the resources to care for the illegals, while Gov. Greg Gianforte has threatened to sue the Biden administration [Montana governor threatens legal action if Biden administration flies migrants from southern border, by Anna Giaritelli, Washington Examiner, March 23, 2021].

When President Joe Biden announced he would withdraw all U.S. troops from Afghanistan by the 20th anniversary of 9/11, GOP hawks like Sens. Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham responded predictably.

"Grave mistake," muttered McConnell.

"Insane," said Graham, "dumber than dirt and... dangerous."

Of more interest were the responses of conservative Republicans who commended the president. Among them were Sens. Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley and ex-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, a group that contains several potential candidates for the GOP nomination in 2024.

It’s perhaps fitting that the apparent rout of the “America First Caucus” amid Ruling Class attacks on the “Anglo-Saxon” legacy came on the day of Prince Philip’s funeral and the iconic shot of the black-clad, masked-up Sovereign sitting alone in a nearly empty church [Queen and Royal Family alone but for the gaze of the world, by Allan Little, BBC, April 17, 2021]. But Rep. Marjorie Taylor-Greene’s proposal struck a nerve. In one form or another, this issue will be back.

MTG and other Congressmen proposed an “America First Caucus” that included common sense proposals on immigration, Big Tech, infrastructure and other issues [America First Caucus Policy Platform Final, PunchBowl News, Accessed April 18, 2021]. But after a draft was leaked, Regime Media journalists rose in outrage at the use of the terms “Anglo-Saxon” and “European architecture” [Capitol Hill’s far right pushes Anglo-Saxon values, European architecture, by Oriana Gonzalez, Axios, April 17, 2021].

The would-be caucus members sounded what looks like an ignominious retreat (there are reports the proposal will be revived later this year), unquestionably because the GOP Congressional Leadership was pushing them to surrender. Well into the Biden Administration, the GOP has no strategy other than hoping Biden will fail—and attacking its own base. [GOP believes Democrats handing them winning 2022 campaign, Brett Samuels, The Hill, April 18, 2021]

To be clear, there may be something to the defense that the members of the America First Caucus didn’t fully vet the draft. Though the Regime Media ran cover for her, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had the same problem when a draft version of the “Green New Deal” was put online [Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s rocky rollout of the Green New Deal, explained, by Tara Golshan and Elia Nilsen, Vox, February 11, 2019]. It included bizarre language about the challenge to “fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes” [Green New Deal FAQ, Accessed April 18, 2021].

But nonetheless, the Biden campaign essentially endorsed many of its ideas and is arguably trying to implement them in its infrastructure bill, once again showing that Democrats never abandon their frontline fighters [Joe Biden has endorsed the Green New Deal in all but name, by Julian Brave, The Guardian, July 20, 2020].
