Defense Witness in Chauvin Case Targeted by Vandals with Pig’s Blood

If this is any indication of what’s to come at the conclusion of the trial, America had better buckle up.

America is on edge, as we await the verdict in one of the most prominent trials in several decades.

Monday marked the beginning of the closing arguments in the case of Derek Chauvin, formerly of the Minneapolis police department, who was kneeling on George Floyd’s neck at the time of his death last year.  Video of that incident was enough to send much of the nation into a frenzy, with daily protests often devolving into nightly violence.

Now, with a verdict perhaps only a few days away, there are fears that anti-police extremism could make a return to the United States along with that decision.

If the latest news out of California is any indication, we are in for one heck of a ride should Chauvin be found not guilty.

The former Northern California home of an expert police use-of-force witness who testified last week for the defense in the Derek Chauvin murder trial was targeted over the weekend by vandals, police said.

Police in Santa Rosa, California, said the vandalism occurred early Saturday morning at the former home of Barry Brodd, a former Santa Rosa Police Department training officer, who moved out of the residence several years ago and no longer lives in the state.

Police were called to the home just after 3 a.m. by the new homeowners, who told officers they were awakened by a group of people dressed all in black, who threw a severed pig’s head on their front porch and splattered blood on the front of their house, officials said.

“It appears the suspects in this vandalism were targeting Mr. Brodd for his testimony,” the police statement reads.

These ne’er-do-wells also vandalized a local shopping center with the aforementioned pig’s blood, smearing “oink oink” on parts of the property.

CRUEL: Unvaccinated Man Denied Heart Transplant by Boston Hospital

Unforgivable.

Published

on

Americans are facing a strange new pandemic of prejudice in 2022, as a number of organizations and establishments continue to discriminate against and segregate the unvaccinated from the vaccinated, and it’s beginning to get to the point where such separation could be deadly.

In restaurants and concert halls, as well as on many domestic flights, those who’ve chosen not to receive a COVID vaccination are being excluded and mistreated.  In some schools, this personal medical decision could even see you corralled around like cattle.

Now, in a stunning turn of events, choosing to remain unvaccinated could see you denied life-or-death medical help.

A Boston hospital is defending itself after a man’s family claimed he was denied a new heart for refusing to be vaccinated against COVID-19, saying most transplant programs around the country set similar requirements to improve patients’ chances of survival.

The family of D.J. Ferguson said in a crowdfunding appeal this week that officials at Brigham and Women’s Hospital told the 31-year-old father of two that he was ineligible for the procedure because he hasn’t been vaccinated against the coronavirus.

“We are literally in a corner right now. This is extremely time sensitive,” the family said in its fundraising appeal, which has raised tens of thousands of dollars. “This is not just a political issue. People need to have a choice!”

The patient had serious, well-researched concerns.

D.J.’s mother, Tracey Ferguson, insists that her son isn’t against vaccinations, noting he’s had other immunizations in the past. But the trained nurse said Wednesday that he’s been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation — an irregular and often rapid heart rhythm — and that he has concerns about the side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine.

“D.J. is an informed patient,” Tracey Ferguson said in a brief interview at her home in Mendon, about 30 miles (48 kilometers) southwest of Boston. “He wants to be assured by his doctors that his condition would not be worse or fatal with this COVID vaccine.”

Sadly, D.J.’s case is not the first such discriminatory incident, and it certainly won’t be the last unless a dramatic shift in thinking was to occur within the medical establishment.

Spotify Chooses Joe Rogan Over Neil Young After Egregious Ultimatum

Young thought that he had enough clout to make Spotify blink. He did not.

Published

on

Earlier in the week, a Canadian folk rocker with a penchant for sticking his nose into American culture and politics gave streaming giant Spotify an ultimatum:  Either cancel immensely popular podcaster Joe Rogan, or pull Neil Young’s music from the platform.

Young, whose nosiness in matters not of his own was forever enshrined in Lynyrd Skynyrd’s seminal hit “Sweet Home Alabama”, told his own streaming service that Joe Rogan’s “misinformation” was enough to make him want to leave the platform.  Young appeared to believe that he had enough clout to make Spotify blink.

He did not.

Spotify Technology is removing Neil Young’s music, as the folk-rock star isn’t wavering in his objections to Joe Rogan’s podcast.

The “Heart of Gold” and “Harvest Moon” singer earlier this week penned an open letter to his manager and label asking them to remove his music from the service, saying it is spreading fake information about COVID-19 vaccines through Mr. Rogan’s show. “They can have Rogan or Young. Not both,” he wrote.

Spotify was unapologetic.

“We want all the world’s music and audio content to be available to Spotify users. With that comes great responsibility in balancing both safety for listeners and freedom for creators,” a Spotify spokesman said. The company has detailed content policies in place and has removed over 20,000 Covid-related podcast episodes since the start of the pandemic, he added.

“We regret Neil’s decision to remove his music from Spotify, but hope to welcome him back soon,” he said.

Rogan’s allegedly controversial “misinformation”, (which is literally a set of two-way conversations being misconstrued to manufacture some faux outrage), has been defended by Spotify several times in recent weeks, often with a reminder about the First Amendment included.
