Tucker Carlson has revealed evidence that the entire George Floyd story was, in his words, a “lie.” Jean Mondoro reports on LewRockwell.com:
A prosecutor said she was told after an autopsy ‘there were no medical findings that showed any injury to the vital structures of Mr. Floyd’s neck. There were no medical indications of asphyxia or strangulation.’After the release of additional groundbreaking evidence in the notorious George Floyd case, conservative journalist Tucker Carlson declared the entire narrative to have been “a lie.”
Recently released court documents from an unrelated case in Hennepin County, Minnesota, reveal that there was evidence to support former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin’s innocence when being tried for the alleged murder of Floyd. However, presumably due to the pressure put on everyone involved to convict Chauvin, those details failed to reach the light of day.
The story revived the radical Black Lives Matter (BLM) activist movement, which used Floyd’s death as an example of police brutality and systemic racism in law enforcement. Floyd, a black man with a previous criminal record and history of drug abuse, was presented as a thoroughly innocent man who was arrested and ruthlessly murdered by a white cop.
Chauvin was convicted and sentenced to jail on charges of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. Evidence that Chauvin’s actions were beyond a reasonable response to the situation and that they played a major role in Floyd’s death was required for conviction.
Despite the former Minneapolis police officer being found guilty of all three charges and currently serving a 22-year jail sentence, new evidence now points to his actions not having led to Floyd’s death.
Carlson addressed the news in the October 20 installment of his show, which streams on X, and argued the new evidence suggests the entire narrative was false.
“Now, we’ve been told that happened,” he said, referring to the narrative that Floyd was murdered by Chauvin. “At this point, we’ve been told it so much that pretty much everybody seems to believe it.”
