Liberals are attacking Brett Favre for saying what polling shows millions of Americans believe, that he believes former police officer Derek Chauvin did not intend to kill George Floyd.
“NFL legend Brett Favre received heavy backlash after he admitted he finds it “hard to believe” that former Minneapolis, Minnesota, police officer Derek Chauvin intentionally killed George Floyd,” according to Blaze Media.
“A jury on Tuesday pronounced Chauvin guilty on all three charges of second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter. The former police officer is awaiting sentencing.
“On Wednesday, the former football player said that Chauvin’s use of force was undoubtedly excessive, but that he does not believe the former officer intended to kill Floyd.
“‘I find it hard to believe — and I’m not defending Derek Chauvin in any way — I find it hard to believe, first of all, that he intentionally meant to kill George Floyd,’ he said during Wednesday’s “Bolling with Favre” podcast. ‘That being said, his actions were uncalled for. I don’t care what color the person is on the street. I don’t know what led to that video that we saw where his knee is on his neck, but the man had thrown in the towel.’…
“Scott Dworkin, co-founder of the Democratic Coalition, said the Hall of Fame player is a ‘hall of fame racist.’ [emphasis added]
“William LeGate, chief executive officer at Blockchain Financial Company, tweeted, “Brett Favre says kneeling during the anthem is bad but kneeling on the necks of black people is good — got it.” [emphasis added]
