The Jury in the Derek Chauvin trial came to a verdict that the former police officer is guilty of all charges in the death of George Floyd. If you ever wondered why people have turned Fox News off, today was a perfect example, during The Five. Aside from Jesse Watters and the others sounding just like the hacks over at CNN, Greg Gutfeld took the prize for worst commentary saying, ‘I’m glad [Chauvin] was found guilty on all charges, even if he might not be guilty of all charges. I am glad that he is guilty of all charges because I want a verdict that keeps this country from going up in flames.’
Listen to the panel, even racist Juan Williams is taken aback!!
During the riots over the 2020 summer Gutfeld’s neighborhood was one that was looted and vandalized in NYC causing him to buy a shotgun! ‘I’m at least being honest. My neighborhood was looted. I don’t ever want to go through that again.’ He allowed his emotions to override reason, principle, rationale and justice. It is clear as day this jury was intimidated by acts of the media to identify them (doxxing) and Rep Waters’ threats for more violence if a guilty verdict on all charges was not delivered. It was so apparent Judge Cahill even stated Waters opened the door for the case to be overturned in an appeal!
Chauvin is most likely guilty of manslaughter but not 2nd and 3rd degree murder. This verdict was a crime in itself and Gutfeld applauds it, he applauds the idea of an innocent man/ woman going to jail even if they’re not guilty to appease the mob, thats all he cared about!
Go watch The Five and listen to the nonsense from the panel and you’ll understand why so many have turned Fox News off. They are CNN-lite as this site accurately called when Trish Regan was fired. Fox, like CNN, MSNBC and the others, is desperate for ratings (= advertising revenue) post-Trump, so they’ll do and say whatever is necessary to get viewers.
Whatever credibility Gutfeld had is gone after this statement. NO ONE should ever break principle, rules or laws to appease a mob. Once you bend a knee to the mob they own you and you will never break free of the hold they have on you.
