Did Derek Chauvin attend this rally?

"The Obama Administration and the handcuffing and oppression of police was despicable. The first thing president trump did when he took office was turn that around. Got rid of the Holder/Loretta Lynch regime and decided to start taking letting the cops do their jobs.
Put the handcuffs on the criminals instead of us."

1. Something that also pissed me off about this whole affair.

"Chauvin" is a nice Cajun name. He besmirched it.

3. It is, but he wasn't the first to besmirch it.

Chauvin is where we get the word chauvinism.

By itself, it just means excessively patriotic; but with a gender, it means a believer that one gender is superior to another (male chauvinist).

History and Etymology for chauvinism
French chauvinisme, from Nicolas Chauvin, character noted for his excessive patriotism and devotion to Napoleon in Théodore and Hippolyte Cogniard's play La Cocarde tricolore (1831)

(Not trying to be a smarty pants here. I remembered that factoid from watching Gloria on “All in the Family.”)

2. If he did, he's not in any of the photos. Claims otherwise have been debunked.

6. And who knows if that rally was an indirect cause of Mr. Floyd's death.

A rally that provoked contempt for the ACTUALLY oppressed.
