Op-Ed: The Left Is Using Injustice as a Weapon

When was the perfect time to unleash the mob, fully grown and fully goaded? In the middle of a pandemic of course!

On Saturday, however, one photo gave a brief glimpse of hope for those praying that America can find some sort of reconciliation amid all of the tragedy and chaos. In the photo, Officer Garren Hoskins of the Metro Nashville Police Department in Nashville, Tennessee, is seen embracing a masked protester as they pray together.

Hoskins had approached the protester, which eventually led to the two men speaking about their shared Christian faith.

The officer then asked the protester to pray with him, which led to the amazing photo that is now offering a little ray of sunshine during the doom and gloom of the ongoing riots and protests.

In an interview with Newsmax TV, MyPillow founder and Minnesota resident Mike Lindell condemned his state’s handling of the death of George Floyd — as well as the riots in the aftermath — and said he may consider a run at the governor’s mansion in the North Star State.

In the interview on “Saturday Report,” Lindell said that Derek Chauvin, the Minneapolis officer whose actions may have led to the death of Floyd, should have immediately been arrested and held in custody after the incident.
