This week, Andrew and Jason reflect upon the George Floyd trial and the aftermath of the guilty verdict of Derek Chauvin. There was a lot of trepidation in the atmosphere until the verdict came down. Did the threat of a city in flames again affect the outcome? There was pressure and threats from the likes of Maxine Waters, Keith Ellison… even the sitting president of the United States. You had celebrities and sports stars proclaiming their desired verdict in unison. There was no question that Derek Chauvin was guilty of something… but was the verdict just on all charges?
The chances of an appeal are inevitable. Will the outcome be the same? There are some crazy things happening on the political front that have changed the way we interpret societal events. Everything has some secret meaning, and most of us are on the outside… and those with power are afraid of this vocal minority.
We also discuss how our country is on the brink of changing forever. We’re up against some frightening stuff: open borders, court packing, statehood for D.C. and Puerto Rico, getting rid of the Electoral College, destroying the filibuster, and more. The House is bent on passing this stuff and the Senate has a few in the middle that are holding the line for the moment. To top it off, the first 100 days of President Biden have been one of the strangest and most liberal in the history of our country. Where are we headed? How long will it take to get there? Join the discussion and let us know what you think about these hot topics!
