Problem Solved: Pornhub Stands In Solidarity Against Racism

I’m not quite sure what to think of a pornagraphy site taking a stand on this. Is it Important, considering how much people watch and that it ranks #59 for traffic and engagement world wide? Or, is it utterly absurd, because it is a pornagraphy site that features sibling videos, abuse and fake rape, forced sex, etc?

Pornhub Claims It ‘Stands in Solidarity Against Racism,’ Features Racist Videos

Pornhub joined other companies and websites that have signaled their “solidarity against racism” in the wake of George Floyd’s death at the hands of police in Minneapolis, but the site’s critics assert its claim is phony since it hosts racist videos.

On Saturday, the pornography media giant tweeted, “Pornhub stands in solidarity against racism and social injustice. If you are able, we encourage you to give to organizations” and tagged groups such as the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), NAACP, and Bail Project.

Pornhub added it “pledged to support by donating $100,000 to organizations actively fighting for equality,” and invited others to join the website.

As the Daily Wire noted, however, anti-porn group Fight the New Drug (FTNG) called out the porn giant for hypocrisy in its claim it “stands in solidarity against racism.”

I guess it’s nice that Pornhub stands in solidarity, considering that George Floyd was killed by the officer while other officers stood around, but, was it racism or just a horrible cop? We have learned that Floyd and Chauvin knew each other for years. Does Pornhub stand in solidarity with all the violence, looting, property destruction, and so forth? Anyhow, speaking of Chauvin and the other officers

(USA Today) All four police officers in the killing of George Floyd will face charges, Minnesota’s attorney general announced Wednesday, and court papers described more troubling details about how officers did nothing to stop Floyd from dying on the ground.

Attorney General Keith Ellison said at a news conference that evidence “supports a stronger charge” for Derek Chauvin. He had been charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter May 29 and taken into custody the same day.

Thomas Lane, J.A. Keung and Tou Thao were the other officers on the scene. Thao was charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder in the commission of a felony; the other officers face similar charges of aiding and abetting.

“Trying this case will not be an easy thing,” Ellison said. “Winning a conviction will be hard.”

Yes, it may well be. Some law pundits are saying that a 2nd degree charge is correct, others are saying it is crazy, and almost impossible. Especially when keeping the 3rd degree charge, for which the defense will go to court and say “pick one.” The 3 officers are charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. What happens if a jury cannot convict on 2nd degree? That means the 3 officers get off scott free. Chauvin deserves prison, but, 2nd degree will be difficult, especially since his defense will claim he cannot get a fair trial, especially when the AG of Minnesota is personally involved.

But, fortunately, Pornhub stands in solidarity.

    Derek Chauvin is 44 years old. The maximum sentence for third degree is 25 years; even if we assume that he won’t get the maximum, you’ve got to figure twenty years, in which case he doesn’t get out of the clink until he’s 64 years old.

    The maximum sentence for second-degree is 40 years, which means they could lock him up until he’s 84, though he might still be sentenced to just 20.

    Second degree is doable, but the real issue is that Keith bin Ellison is going along with the mob, wanting as close to a lynching as can be had when it comes to Mr Chauvin. It looks like his main bid to run for governor.

    Let’s tell the truth: Mr bin Ellison would really like to just release Mr Chavin to the mob and watch them string him up.

    The charge of second degree requires an underlying crime. Ellison has not charged an underlying crime and is, in fact, claiming the the actions of Chauvin are both the underlying crime and the reason for Floyd’s death.

    Instead of two separate acts as required by the statutes, Ellison is saying one act fits both standards.

    It’s an illogical and legal impossibility.

    Ellison is playing to the crowd.

      Is it not possible that felony assault and battery (by a killer with a gun) led to the death of Mr. Floyd? Clearly Officer Chauvin was intent on harming Mr. Floyd, even if he didn’t mean to kill him.

      Richard Frase, a criminal law professor at the University of Minnesota Law School, said that while the second-degree murder upgrade comes with a longer recommended sentence, it is easier to prove.

      “Second-degree felony murder is an even lower standard than third-degree murder,” he said. It does not require proof of intent to kill but rather proof of intent to assault someone. That intent triggers a cascade that, if death results, means the assailant can be culpable of murder, Frase said.

      “The only intent you have to show is an intent to cause bodily harm,” he said. “They don’t have to show extreme recklessness as to death.”

      We understand the far-right’s abject desire to excuse the killing of Black men (he was resisting!, he was on drugs!, he was a continued threat!, there was no underlying crime!). Perhaps once tRump and GOP have total control of America they can pass laws making the killing of Blacks a misdemeanor, maybe a $100 fine and a prohibition from killing Blacks for 6 mos.

      Mr. bin Dana is very concerned for Officer Chauvin, even accusing the MN AG of acceding to “the mob”. Poor Chauvin could be in prison until he’s 84 just for killing a Black man! Little need to worry, unless Chauvin gets special protections he’s unlikely to be in prison long. Maybe he can do his time in a country club prison, or maybe tRump can pardon him, if he’s even convicted.

        No one is saying otherwise. But once again, if the “felony assault and battery” led to the death of Floyd, “felony assault and battery” cannot be the underlying crime which is a necessary element of second degree murder.

        We understand the far-right’s abject desire to excuse the killing of Black men….

        And we understand that the left hates people and facts so much that they want to lie about the motives and thinking of others. The people I talk to all would like to see Chauvin serve maximum time in jail. The problem is that a conviction on second degree murder doesn’t fit the facts and even if the jury convicts, it will be set aside upon appeal.

        You may or may not remember Justine Damond, a 40-year-old Australian woman who was shot and killed in 2017 by officer Mohamed Noor, a Somali immigrant to this country. People used the death of Damond to try and show the problems with immigration and how the Minneapolis police had problems within the department of systemic police abuse. The death of Floyd was while in the custody of the same police department. Noor was convicted of 3rd degree murder and second degree manslaughter (the same charges as originally made against Chauvin. Despite Noor being a minority his shooting of a white woman, Noor did not receive the max penalty which goes against your narrative that people only care about locking minorities up for the maximum length of time. In the Noor case, there was an underlying crime which could have meant that 2nd degree murder would have been appropriate.

        We all get that you hate the US so much that you’d like to see Chauvin walk because it would light more cities on fire. You clearly support rioters and looters.

        The defense will make Ellison choose between second and third degree murder. He’ll choose second or risk a loss of face, and then he will lose at trial because of the issue that the action he says caused the death is the same action as he wants to claim is the underlying felony. While the law demands two acts, Ellison only has one.

        Finally, it is sad to see that you are willing to see and hoping that Chauvin is killed in jail by other criminals. One wrongful death is not good enough for you. You want more. You want more looter, rioters, protesters and police killed and injured. You want blood in the streets.

        Such is the depth of your hatred.

        After all, that’s all you have. Hatred is all the left has.

    Personally, I am OK with not knowing this much about how Porn Hub operates.
