British TV people are so used to having woke left lemmings on their show, they’re genuinely shocked when someone doesn’t spout the official talking points. Enjoy!
It’s been a crazy week over here in the New World. Those American Bobbies found themselves making news left and right.
So the BBC called on a ‘policeman of colour’ to explain what’s been going on ‘over there’ to their English viewers.
It did NOT go as they planned. See for yourself.
(Video in two parts, over two tweets. Our transcript follows the second tweet.)
The BBC got a black police officer on to discuss Chauvin's convictions, they clearly weren't expecting the truth bombs and ended the interview prematurely.

BBC guy: (sets up piece saying they will come back to wider implications later, but wanted to begin with Officer Tatum’s reaction the the Chauvin conviction)
TATUM: Well, first of all, most of what I heard on the broadcast all the way here is confusing to me. I think we’re living in the Twilight Zone. This conviction, in my personal opinion, did nothing for our country. I mean people are living a lie.
I mean, this was one police officer, one person in the community, they found him guilty, this was the swiftest justice I’ve ever seen in my life. The day after the film came out he was arrested. He was tried. Ten hours of deliberation he was convicted. I’m not really sure why people are acting like this is monumental.
Also, he did not get a fair trial, in my personal opinion. There was a lot of obstruction that happened. They paid the family out $27M before the jury could be selected, they’re gonna have a case in appeal. So I don’t know why people are celebrating, and I don’t know why this is such a big focal point other than people are making money off of the pain of people in our country.
BBC: So you’re objecting firstly to some of the things that happened around the trial which, now that there’s been a conviction we should probably park that, but secondly, you’re upset that there’s an amalgamation here of a wider sense of a landmark case and this one specific court case.
TATUM: Yeah, this is not a landmark case, I think. This is a political agenda. They’re pushing lies in our country. Policing in America is not inherently racist. We don’t live in a racist country.
This was an interaction between a police officer that I thought did the wrong thing, and a black man who was on drugs, high, resisting arrest, and ended up being killed by that police officer. That’s as simple as it can be. The President of the United States got out and made a fool of himself tryin’ to promote racism in a simple police encounter that the officer got convicted on.
BBC: You reject President Biden’s comments about systemic racism and it being a stain on the whole nation.
TATUM: Yes. President Biden is an idiot in my personal opinion, and he’s just talking because he’s a politician.
Systemic racism? I mean, if you look at Joe Biden himself, you know, he spoke at a Klu Klux Klan member’s funeral and did the eulogy, of Robert Byrd. I mean, HE is white supremacy and racist if you want to say that is the case and he’s the President. So if he really cared about white supremacy and racism, he should step down as the President because he’s an exemplification of that very thing. These people are just running their mouths and they’re not being honest.
We don’t have a problem with racism in this country. We have a problem with people not following the law. We also have a problem with politicians making up things so they can get re-elected. And that’s exactly what has been happening. That’s why you never see anything change. They’re lying to us.
BBC: So the rate of people being killed by police is — the rate is higher amongst black people than amongst the rest of the population. How do you account for that if that isn’t a systemic racism problem?
TATUM: Yeah. First of all, that’s not true. Twice as many white people got killed by police every year. Twice as many white people are killed unarmed by police every year. You just don’t see it. There’s a gentleman named Tony Tempa. I guarantee you anyone watching me have no idea who Tony Tempa is. Tony Tempa was murdered in the same fashion that George Floyd was killed. But because he was white, we don’t hear about it and nobody cares about it.
Nobody was talking about police reform when he was suffocated and killed. But they only talk about it because George Floyd is black. Black people commit over half of violent crimes in this country and only make up 13% of the population. They commit over half of the murders in this country, but only make up 13% of the population. And we can agree that 13% of the population aren’t the criminals. There’s only a small fraction of the black community that’s doing this.
So that explains why police are in the black communities more, that explains why black people are incarcerated more. They are making up lies saying it has anything to do with racism.
Do you understand that there is black police officers, too, that patrol in many of these majority-black cities? Are THEY racist? No, that’s not the case. They’re just making these things up in my personal opinion. and they’re riding a wave of dead black people in order to make money and be politically — and get political leverage.
We’re not sure the left actually DOES understand that.
After all, contextualizing issues gives perspective and removes the emotional element.
But for clickbait leftist activists, emotions and outrage are their mother’s milk. They simply cannot do without it.
Check out ClashRadio for more wit and wisdom from ClashDaily’s Big Dawg. While you’re at it, here’s his latest book:
Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
