Should We Be Protesting About George Floyd or Julian Assange?

Should We Be Protesting About George Floyd or Julian Assange?

Paul Craig Roberts

Some Americans are so pathetic they don’t even know what gender they are. A female with a vagina thinks she is a male.  A male with testicles and a penis thinks he is a female.  Those among us who are normal are supposed to be oh-so-concerned about these confused people that we stop using gender pronouns.  He/she/him/her have become transphobic.  If you persist in using the English language, you are uncaring and, well, evil to boot.

The transgendered are busy at work making themselves into another preferred minority with all the special privileges in law that that designation brings. I wonder what happens when everyone needs the protection of the special privilege designation, and men and women no longer exist. 

Somehow I cannot imagine a country absorbed in transgender issues being exceptional and indispensable, as the neocons say we are, much less being a military power. I very much doubt that Russia and China regard a country as a military threat whose population is confused about what gender they are. 

Looking at the evidence, I would say that America has had its 15 minutes of fame.  What convinces me that America is all washed up is Americans’ acceptance of the horrors inflicted by the American/British police state on Julian Assange. In Assange’s treatment we see the violation of every human right.  And the Western public has accepted it.

Instead of protesting against the persecution of a truth-teller, agents of the Establishment, pretending to be “peaceful protesters,” are burning and looting properties belonging to black, Asian, white, and Hispanic business owners and destroying public monuments for no other reason than a felon, misogynist, drug addict, George Floyd, killed himself by overdosing on Fentanyl.

John Paul Leonard writing in the Unz Review first brought my attention to George Floyd being a drug addict.  Unlike CNN, MSNBC, BBC, NPR, New York Times, Washington Post, or any of the corrupt presstitute media, Leonard pointed out that the medical examiner’s toxicology report accompanying the autopsy of Floyd’s death clearely indicated a lethal dose of the dangerous opiod, Fentanyl, in Floyd’s blood.

Fentanyl causes breathing problems that lead to death.  Prior to Floyd’s restraint, he complained to the police that he could not breathe and asked to be removed from the police car and to lay down on the ground.  We know this from the released police recordings.  The presstitutes did not report this fact, but the recordings were released. 

When an experienced officer, Chauvin, appeared on the scene he recognized a drug overdose problem and had medics called. Floyd was on his stomach so that he would not choke on his own vomit as Fentanyl can produce nausua. The intentionally misinterpreted “knee-on-the-neck” is a restraint technique that is taught to police.  It is not deadly. Chauvin used this common practice to keep Floyd, who was having difficulty absorbing oxygen, still in an effort to minimize his oxygen use and thereby prolong his life until medics arrived, hopefully equipped with naloxone. If given promptly, naloxone can treat a Fentanyl overdose by binding to opiod receptors and blocking the effects of the drug. Fentanyl is such a strong opioid that multiple doses of naloxone are usually required. 

Some medics are eqipped with naloxone.  No doubt this was what Chauvin hoped.

Instead of attending to the facts, the despicable American media intentionally created the impression that Chauvin had intentionally murdered Floyd in an act of white racism. This lie was used to support the New York Times 1619 Project, an insult to America that alleges in the absence of any evidence that the United States originated as a white supremacist society that enslaved blacks in an act of racism.

The result of the intentional lies that the US is based in racism and that black Floyd was murdered by white police have been the destruction of billions of dollars in black, Asian, white, and Hispanic businesses and public monuments, the abandonment of the defense of property and law and order by Democrat-controlled cities and states, and a stand-down of the police, which has left people at the mercy of Antifa and Black Lives Matter. Democrats have tried to arrest and prosecute white Americans who took legal steps to defend their property and have left others to fend for themselves when stopped in traffic and surrounded by thugs demanding money.

The toxicology report accompanying George Floyd’s autopsy shows Fentanyl in his blood at the concentration of 11 ng/ml.  This is a fatal dose.  Therepeutic concentrations of Fentanyl, that is, those prescribed by doctors, range between 0.63-2.0 ng/mL.  

Fentanyl is equipotent to morphine at doses that are 50–100 times lower. In other words, Fentanyl is 50-100 times stronger than morphine. Post mortem serum concentratons of lethal doses of Fentanyl begin at 5 ng/mL. Floyd had more than twice this concentration.  The danger of Fentanyl rises when taken in combination with other drugs. The toxicology report shows Floyd with a Methamphetamine concentration of 19 ng/mL and a concentration of Delta-9 Carboxy THC of 42 ng/mL.  Like Fentanyl, a meth overdose causes, rapid, slowed, or irregular heart rate, difficulty breathing, heart attack, stroke, agitation. The THC in the cannabis part of the cocktail increases the toxicity of the cannabis.  Floyd also had serious heart problems which made his drug cocktail more dangerous to him.
