Twitter Lets Verified Users Spread Fake Photo Linking MN Cop to ‘Make Whites Great Again’ Hat

18

It is not a surprise that Twitter would allow a fake photo to circulate, so that the Left could exploit the tragic Minneapolis Police situation. It’s all about vilifying President Trump and trashing the United States!

Department of Justice, remove the immunity Twitter enjoys under Section 230 of the FEC code.

Twitter Lets Verified Users Spread Fake Photo Linking MN Cop to ‘Make Whites Great Again’ Hat

By Breitbart, May 27, 2020

Twitter has failed to take action as several verified accounts on Wednesday posted a photo falsely linking a Minneapolis police officer — infamous after he was caught on video kneeling on a now-deceased black man’s neck — with a man wearing a “Make Whites Great Again” baseball hat.

The video, which has sparked national outrage, shows police detaining 46-year-old George Floyd in south Minneapolis on Monday evening.

The clip shows an officer, believed to be Derek Chauvin, kneeling on Floyd’s neck for over seven minutes as he uttered, “I can’t breathe. Please, the knee on my neck.”

Floyd later died at Hennepin County Medical Center.

Hours after the video went viral, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey announced the firings of four Minneapolis Police Department officers.

“This is the right call,” Frey wrote on Twitter.

“Being black in America should not be a death sentence,” he said. “For 5 minutes we watched as a white officer pressed his knee to the neck of a black man, for 5 minutes. When you hear someone calling for help, you are supposed to help, this officer failed in the most basic human sense.”

On Twitter, users upset with Officer Chauvin began sharing a photo collage which falsely suggests is wearing a red baseball hat that reads “Make Whites Great Again,” a reference to President Donald Trump’s 2016 election slogan “Make America Great Again.”

However, the man on the right is not Chauvin but appears to resemble former federal prisoner Jonathan Lee Riches, who has reportedly claimed to have filed over 4,000 lawsuits.

One of the first verified accounts to share the photo, around midnight eastern time, was far-left activist and radio host Talbert Swan. He wrote: “Here is Derek Chauvin, the racist cop who kept his knee on #GeorgeFloyd’s neck, cut off his air passage and murdered him, wearing a ‘Make Whites Great Again’ hat, a clear sign that this piece of excrement should’ve been taken off the streets a long time ago.”

After being called out for sharing fake news, Swan has refused to delete the misleading post and told the people asking for a correction to “go to Hades.”
