You know the old adage..One black person on the street corner is a thief, two a conspiracy, and three…a Riot.
Seems one of the Chumph’s acolytes who was called in to testify by the Grand Jury was terrified by the fact some black folks were selected for Jury duty.
In Washington, DC – a city with over 50% black population, that means unless you got a Republican KKK appointee for a judge…The jury is going to be at least partially black. You hit the racial Trifecta, and it isn’t out of the realm of possibility it could be all black.
When you are a racist white supremacist, who also happens to be guilty of treason…That is terrifying. White boy justice takes on a whole new meaning. No more “poor, pitiful, rich white boy” raping women wantonly and getting a wrist slap.
Your criminal white ass is going to jail.
Not surprisingly the white-wing press is “shocked” and visibly shaken that they would allow black jurors on a case prosecuting a white person!
Things were definitely much better under slavery and Jim Crow!
Nt your typical Jim Crow Jury
News properties owned by Rupert Murdoch have done admirable work in chiseling away at cornerstones of U.S. democracy in service to President Trump. Opinionators at Fox News, for example, have advanced the administration’s plans to deconstruct the administrative state by dissing government in general and the FBI in particular.
Now Murdoch’s New York Post is going a step further, to the extent that’s possible. Here’s the headline on Richard Johnson’s Tuesday story on Page Six: “Russia probe grand jury looks like ‘a Black Lives Matter rally,’ says witness.” Based on the input of a single witness who testified before the Russia grand jury that’s hearing testimony in special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation, Johnson writes:
Of the 20 jurors, 11 are African-Americans and two were wearing “peace T-shirts,” the witness said. “There was only one white male in the room, and he was a prosecutor.” Mueller was not present.
My source said, “That room isn’t a room where POTUS gets a fair shake.”
From the sound of things, a Trump loyalist came face to face with a group of black people seated together and didn’t like it. So the loyalist leaked to the New York Post, which was happy to get a New Year’s jump on fresh approaches to discrediting the investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia. While at the same time weakening confidence in the U.S. criminal-justice system, of course.
When questioned about the piece via phone, Johnson responded, “I respectfully have no comment at this time. I don’t give interviews unless I get permission.”
