Democrat narratives are stubborn little devils. From facts to logic to science to common sense and reality, Democrats refuse to yield to anything contrarian to those narratives, choosing instead to misrepresent, dismiss, bald-faced lie about, or simply ignore. The Democrat narrative is Democrat reality.
Perfect case in point? The George Floyd narrative.
As our story begins, Floyd’s four-year-old niece was shot on New Year’s Day as she slept in her bed in a Houston apartment. According to a police department statement, several shots were fired into the apartment just before 3 a.m. on Saturday while four adults and two children were inside, as reported by NBC News on Friday. In addition, the department said, it has opened an internal investigation into its “delayed response” to the shooting. Hmm.
**Warning: strong language**
Sharing this because I haven’t seen much coverage on social media. Arianna Delane, the 4 year old niece of George Floyd, was shot in her bed in a targeted attack. It took police 4 fucking hours to show up. pic.twitter.com/jvWH4jKT7k

Arianna was struck in the torso, police said. Her mother and father drove Arianna to an area hospital, where she underwent surgery and is reportedly in stable condition. The department also said it has no suspect description or motive in the shooting at this point. Wonder why? Perhaps no one’s talking? “Interesting.”
Arianna’s father Derrick Delane described the horrifying incident to NBC’s Houston affiliate:
My daughter jumped up and said she had been hit. I (saw) the blood, the bleeding, and I grabbed her. She’s healing very fast. The last time I checked on her, she was breathing on her own. She was doing really great.
As for the “delayed response,” Houston Police Chief Troy Finner said in a second statement he has opened an internal affairs investigation into the department’s handling of the shooting.
Floyd's great niece, 4, shot in bed by gunman in 'targeted attack' https://t.co/i4Pyw0pSl6 #AriannaDelane Please don’t only rt this but click on it, read the story, look at the size of the bullet holes in this house that hit this child.
NO EXCUSE FOR police taking 4 (FOUR) hrs.

Let the “internal affairs investigation” begin. Don’t they always?
I am aware and have concerns regarding the delayed response time in this incident and have initiated an Internal Affairs investigation.
I ask the city [to] continue to pray for this child’s full recovery and assist in providing information that would lead to the arrest of the suspect or suspects responsible.
So, let’s reflect, shall we?
While similar shootings tragically occur on a regular basis — see: Chicago’s bloody Southside — the fact that this four-year-old girl is George Floyd’s niece should be newsworthy, should it not?
Oh hell, no, in the blatantly hypocritical minds of the left. As we’ve seen over and over again, Democrats’ embrace — or lack thereof — of science, as it relates to their histrionic COVID narrative, has been a perfect example of liberal hypocrisy.
That same hypocrisy over the shooting of George Floyd’s niece is alive and well.
Floyd died after then-Minneapolis police officer Derek Chavin knelt on his neck for nine and a half minutes, for which Chauvin was found guilty of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter, for which he was sentenced to 270 months (22.5 years) in prison. Justice served.
The problem for the whole “Black Lives Matter,” “white supremacy,” “systemic racism” narrative is that chances are [sarc], little Arianna Delane was not shot by a racist white cop at 3:00 in the morning in what was most likely an intentional drive-by shooting. Yep, that’s a problem. And how can I go out on such a precarious limb? By relying on facts and statistics that point to an entirely different demographic.
The same facts and statistics apply to the bloody streets of Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot‘s Southside, which is why Nancy Pelosi, Chuckie Schumer, lunatic Maxine Waters, hapless Joe Biden, vacant Kamala Harris, racist Joy Reid, silly Don Lemon, and the entire lot of these hypocritical people remain full-metal crickets on the out-of-control pandemic of violent black-on-black crime.
Huh. I never made the connection. Well, maybe I did.
