CHAUVIN—ISM

Interesting that the root of murderous cop Derek Chauvin’s name is the root of the word Chauvinism. 

Derek Chauvin charged with murder in connection with death of George Floyd

Chauvinism is the irrational belief in the superiority or dominance of one’s own group or people, who are seen as strong and virtuous, while others are considered weak or unworthy.[1] It can be described as a form of extreme patriotism and nationalism, a fervent faith in national excellence and glory.

Chauvinism has extended from its original use to include fanatical devotion and undue partiality to any group or cause to which one belongs, especially when such partisanship includes prejudice against or hostility toward outsiders or rival groups and persists even in the face of overwhelming opposition.

I find it interesting anyway.

  1. Hello Tony! This is an edited version of my original e-mail re: Rep. Waters’ call to the streets.No protesters. Not yet! Rep.  Waters has this one wrong. Wrong! Protesters must stay home after the verdict.The Klan,  Proud Boys, One Percenters, etc. these jokers will be there in their black “antifa” battledress destroying property to blame it on the protesters. When their allies in the police departments arrest them, they will be revealed to be the domestic terrorists in masquerade. Protesters should stay home to go online to organize the largest world-wide silent peace demonstration in history!Sent from my Galaxy

  3. You caught that, too! When I saw this bum’s name the first time, I thought, “Like ‘chauvinism’. How appropriate”. I bet the defense attempts to put the blame on the other cops and mentions the family’s settlement just because. Stay Safe. 😷👍Sent from my Galaxy

  4. I’d not noticed this until now. I’ll never see the word “chauvinism” again without remembering that awful 9-minute snuff film.
