FOX News host and far-right sycophant Tucker Carlson invited Ed Gavin, a former New York City corrections officer, to opine on the conviction of Derek Chauvin in Minneapolis on Tuesday, April 20.

“Chauvin was imprisoned not without his day in court, as celebrity loudmouths demanded.

“This weekend in Minnesota, Maxine Waters broke the law by violating curfew and then incited violence.”

“Confederate artifacts are undeniably a representation of hate, racism and of oppression. They are an insult to the many people who visit our Capitol today in the state of Texas. The argument that these monuments preserve history somehow or symbolize America’s past is merely to reshape and rewrite the intent of the Civil War.”

“I can’t believe I’m going to say anything good about her. You all know I’m no fan of Nepotism Barbie. But here I go. Take a deep breath…Yesterday, I commend Ivanka Trump for having used her platform to show herself getting the vaccine and promote vaccination, when she says, I hope you get the shot too.

“The entire rationale for this bill was based on a lie: that there was widespread voter fraud in Georgia in the 2020 elections. This is simply not true.”
Bastian was also reacting to newly-enacted laws in the state of Georgia that some see as voter suppression. Delta Airlines is based in Atlanta, Georgia.
