Chauvin Verdict Predictably Leaves Commies Still Miserable and Whining
Happy Wednesday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. I’m wearing my festive power cummerbund right now.
I’m binge-watching Criminal Minds while I work because it’s cheerier than the day-to-day news in America. I’m only on season five so Netflix should be able to get me through the next few months of mostly peaceful unrest. As I lamented on Twitter last night, I’ve almost run out of true crime serial killer fare on my many streaming services.
Never tell me I don’t know struggle.
Another chapter closed in the tragic George Floyd saga yesterday but I think we all know that it won’t be the final chapter. This is going to be an American societal horror version of Proust’s In Search of Lost Time and we’re only about one-third of the way through the first of the seven books.
Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all three charges that he faced. I think most people were certain that the second-degree manslaughter charge would stick. Some may have been surprised that he was so quickly convicted on the other two counts. As Victoria wrote, there will almost certainly be an appeal. And as the judge who presided over the trial mentioned yesterday, Maxine Waters may have given Chauvin some fodder for that.
This was the best possible outcome for all of the people who couldn’t wait to get in front of cameras and demand that justice be done. Our idiot fake president even put down his crayons long enough to tell the nation that he was “praying” for this to happen.
So this verdict was being celebrated by those who insisted that this was about justice for George Floyd, right?
Nah, the leftist perma-victim crowd never stops whining.
It took mere minutes before a lot of the usual suspects hit social media to start the complaining.
On of the first ones to weigh in was the man who is in charge of justice in the state of Minnesota:

In a rush to be even less helpful, America’s Dumbest Bartender opened her mouth even bigger, which was covered over at Townhall:

And on it went.
One of the MSNBC empty talking heads went so far as to say he was “furious” about the verdict:
MSNBC’s Jason Johnson is FURIOUS with the verdict, calling it “a cultural make-up call”: “I’m not happy. I’m not pleased. I don’t have any sense of satisfaction. I don’t think this is the system working…This is the justice system trying to say, hey, this is one bad apple.” pic.twitter.com/W3JLcujpfd

These reactions shouldn’t surprise anyone. Leftists are inherently miserable people. They really aren’t interested in justice. They want reasons to be angrier and they are pathologically devoted to trying to make everyone else as miserable as they are.
And no, unhinged trolls, this isn’t me saying that I think Chauvin should have been acquitted. I thought the manslaughter charge was legit. I also thought that there was undue pressure on the jurors from people like Maxine Waters. Both opinions can exist in the same person. I don’t believe for a moment that the jurors were completely shielded from outside news. Not in the information age.
Another reason for the dissatisfaction is that an integral component of the leftist rage mob’s plan to remake the United States of America into a Third World communist hellhole is to keep the “systemic racism” false narrative rolling along. Being pleased with this verdict wouldn’t help that at all. Predictably, Drooling Joe’s puppet masters pulled the moron’s strings and made him play along.
The end game for the Left right now isn’t to make America change, it’s to make it cease to exist. There is no level of legal justice or capitulation that will satisfy them. This isn’t going to end until we have some adults in charge again. And that may never happen if they have their way with anti-American initiatives like HR 1.
The one thing that we can count on is that, no matter how all of this turns out, AOC’s gaping maw will not have closed during any of it.

Everything Isn’t Awful
Security cameras caught something pretty amazing.

LOL…this song might resonate with me a little more than when I first heard it sixteen years ago.
I was thinking of having a meaningful conversation then people showed up.
