(Tea Party 247) – George Floyd was a man with a lengthy criminal history who was killed by police officer Derek Chauvin in Minneapolis over Memorial Day weekend.
Now, what Chauvin did was completely illegal.
Police officers cannot be allowed to kneel on a suspect’s neck for nine minutes and expect to get away with it.
Thankfully, Chauvin has been charged and will be tried, because this is America, where we have justice for all. Criminals and police officers alike.
Nonetheless, despite Floyd being a far from admirable character who was merely killed in a tragic way, he has become the patron saint of racially-driven causes, the inspiration for a new “revolution” of racial reconciliation that is the Democrats’ latest attempt to leverage racial rhetoric for their political advantage.
If they could just get George Floyd’s name right…
On Friday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) invoked the name of George Floyd during a press conference in a glorious attempt at virtue signaling.
Only…she didn’t use Floyd’s name.
She used some other dude’s.
The Gateway Pundit reports:
80-year-old Pelosi referred to George Floyd, the black man who was killed by a Minnesota police officer, as “George Kirby.”
“I only will do that if you tell me that this legislation is worthy of George KIRBY’s name.” said Pelosi.
Either Pelosi hit the bottle early on Friday or age is catching up to her.
Speaker Pelosi says the Democrat-led police reform bill has to be “worthy of George Kirby’s name.”

If you’re going to invoke the name of a dead man for your own political purpose, make sure to get his name right.
Go home Nancy you’re drunk.

She must be about a quart low on Smirnoff if she made such an error…

Somewhere, someone named "George Kirby" just angerily fist pumped while saying, "hell yeah" behind gritting teeth and a clenched jaw.
