So it’s just way too long to quote. Essentially the claim that snopes attempts to debunk is that George Floyd was a criminal. In the debunking, they state that people are trying to use Floyd’s criminal history to justify his murder.

Bullshit.

Even Candace Owens whom they cite on multiply occasions said no such thing. What she did say is that Floyd is a criminal and should not be viewed as a saint. They cite instances where that has happened. I have previously posted here that Floyd’s younger brother said Floyd was his role mode and I said the brother needs better role models. This is true. Floyd had an extensive rap sheet and that’s only the times he was caught.

They also go on to imply that Floyd had turned his life around.

Bullshit.

He had Fentanyl and Meth in his system. He had anything but turned his life around.

And then they try to minimize his armed robbery CONVICTION where he spent FIVE years in prison and released in 2013, 7 years ago, as though that is some ancient history. Without the arrest report, without speaking to the victim or police, or anyone involved. What did happen is that George Floyd and several others conducted a home invasion robbery at gun point, incorrectly believing there were guns and drugs in the home. It’s a despicable miserable crime and along with his current drug use clearly indicates George Floyd was no saint, but rather an evil asshole who was willing to put peoples lives at risk for financial gain.

This is the cunt who wrote these lies. https://www.snopes.com/author/jessicalee/P



Would it really have been that difficult to write that George Floyd was a bad person with a lifelong drug habit and not the most sympathetic guy? Maybe the memes are exaggerated or contain a piece of false information?

I really don’t know how these people live with themselves. It’s like truth isn’t a leftist value....oh wait....

If I were Candace Owens I’d sue Snopes.

Wow, this whole thing is a whitewash.

"It could have been a legal prescription"
As if any doctor alive would prescribe meth family drugs for a 46-year old with clogged arteries and an enlarged heart. Even if they didn't know they were a former addict.

But they start with the single mom child sob story, and instead of saying "Flunked out of college" say that he finished a year before looking for jobs in the security and construction industry. I mean from top to bottom this isn't a debunking, this is an attempt to present the very best picture possible of Floyd to the point of absurdity.

It even goes on to suggest the store clerk was in the wrong for calling 911 over the counterfeit bill instead of management. Gimme a break!

I looked and can't find any Fact Check about "Hands Up, Don't Shoot"

No doubt another limousine liberal who grew up in a safe, wealthy neighborhood, isolated from the harsh realities of the world around them. They can sit behind their computer and "fight" the injustices they perceive in the world by adjusting facts and making demands of others. They are 2D actors trying to perceive a 3D world. It can't be done.

No amount of debate or textbook learning can alter this thinking. These people can only ever be educated at the School of Hard Knocks. I've seen it happen more than once. Once THEY are the ones who are the direct victim of some crime at the hands of some group, only then does their logic circuit activate. For some, even this isn't enough though. They're so hardwired into the leftist mindset that they'll let themselves be murdered by the people they so devotedly defend before admitting they were wrong. Self-preservation neural pathways have been completely routed around.

She should have a clue. She should have read Clockwork Orange, 1984, and Animal Farm in High School or college. She should know where this path leads. Instead she’s become the propaganda wing for the pigs in Animal Farm.

What idiot has that takeaway from those books? I’m working for the pigs, I’ll be big brother.....

Well, because those are just books, you know, fiction, probably written by cis male chauvinists. The REAL world is absolutely filled with systemic, institutional racism and misogyny. All white males are evil unless they're devoting their lives to serving some victimized minority of our choosing. My liberal arts teacher said so!

She looks more like a selfie posting dumb ass latina that wants to be in the woke group and be popular.

Was that required reading in Chicano Studies class?

Jessica Lee of Snopes is a stupid cunt. Left picture looks like a jail bird shot. Already wearing stripes. Perhaps to sympathize with her peeps.

She longs for a man who will show her what real power is.

David Mikkelson, the co-founder of the fact-checking website Snopes, has long presented himself as the arbiter of truth online, a bulwark in the fight against rumors and fake news. But he has been lying to the site's tens of millions of readers: A BuzzFeed News investigation has found that between 2015 and 2019, Mikkelson wrote and published dozens of articles containing material plagiarized from news outlets such as the Guardian and the LA Times.

After inquiries from BuzzFeed News, Snopes conducted an internal review and confirmed that under a pseudonym, the Snopes byline, and his own name, Mikkelson wrote and published 54 articles with plagiarized material. The articles include such topics as same-sex marriage licenses and the death of musician David Bowie.

Snopes VP of Editorial and Managing Editor Doreen Marchionni suspended Mikkelson from editorial duties pending “a comprehensive internal investigation.” He remains an officer and a 50% shareholder of the company.

Snopes is the fake fact checking that promotes the fake news.
13   Ceffer   2021 Aug 13, 11:15am  

Snopes is for dopes.

Embezzled money from community property and spent it on hookers? At least his heart was in the right place.

Even better.

Snopes (fact chucker) got themselves excluded from the way back machine, also called the Internet archive, which stores Internet webpages going way back in time. Thus, when Snopes says something that's proven wrong later you can't easily prove it by looking up their old webpages.


I do see at least the home page on the internet archive though.
