Furious Texas Gov. Greg Abbott Steps Up After Army Sgt. Convicted Of Murder For Defending Self

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Conservatives have highlighted the usurpations of Hungarian George Soros on the American Republic for decades and were mocked and ridiculed by the left and RINOS alike for years for pointing out the direction Soros was going.

Soros is known for undermining free countries and disrupting Western democracies around the globe. But that fact didn’t cause any greedy politicians and corporate media figures to stop benefitting by selling their positions to Soros.

While the wealthy criminal mastermind, who is responsible for the loss of freedom and liberty all over the globe – transformed the US Justice system with a series of nonprofits and non-government organizations- and with the use of grassroots marketing platforms, he bought up politicians, community organizers, activists and media everywhere to assist him in his power grabs.

Even the left knew what was happening and pointed it out in their media recently, as in 2016.

“While America’s political kingmakers inject their millions into high-profile presidential and congressional contests, Democratic mega-donor George Soros has directed his wealth into an under-the-radar 2016 campaign to advance one of the progressive movement’s core goals — reshaping the American justice system,” Politico reported in 2016, adding:

“The billionaire financier has channeled more than $3 million into seven local district-attorney campaigns in six states over the past year — a sum that exceeds the total spent on the 2016 presidential campaign by all but a handful of rival super-donors.”

Now, in 2023 we can see how Soros has purchased himself a Judicial system with minions to do his bidding, and this story is the perfect example.

Austin’s Soros-backed DA attacks Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s plan to pardon soldier convicted of murdering BLM protester who pointed AK-47 at him during Floyd protests – Claims jurors got the verdict right.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced on Saturday he would intervene as far as state law allows to pardon a former U.S. Army sergeant who was convicted by a jury in liberal Austin after being charged with murder stemming from a shooting during BLM protests in the summer of 2020.

Daniel Perry, whose attorneys argued that he acted in self-defense, was convicted on Friday. “I am working as swiftly as Texas law allows regarding the pardon of Sgt. Perry,” Abbott said in an announcement.

Fox News noted that Abbott said in his tweet that the Board of Pardons and Paroles must recommend pardons in Texas. “I have made that request and instructed the board to expedite its review,” Abbott said, adding that he looks forward to signing the pardon if it makes it to his desk.

Jon Dougherty reported for Conservative Brief about the details:

Perry was found guilty of murder on Friday after shooting a Black Lives Matter protester holding an AK-47. Perry had claimed self-defense, and the Austin Police Department initially supported his version of events.

On July 25, 2020, Perry, stationed at Fort Hood, was driving for Uber in downtown Austin when he encountered a large group of protesters illegally blocking city streets. According to the police, protests that night were part of the weeks-long rioting in Austin and elsewhere, Fox News noted.

According to Perry’s defense team, the protesters encircled his vehicle and started hitting it, and among them was Garrett Foster, who was carrying the semi-automatic rifle. Perry’s team claimed that Foster raised the firearm at Perry, forcing him to use his legally carried handgun in self-defense and shoot Foster.

“When Garrett Foster pointed his AK-47 at Daniel Perry, Daniel had two-tenths of a second to defend himself. He chose to live,” Doug O’Connell, an attorney for Perry, told Fox News Digital last year in a statement.

“It may be legal in Texas to carry an assault rifle in downtown Austin. It doesn’t make it a good idea. If you point a firearm at someone, you’re responsible for everything that happens next,” he added.

Abbott noted that Texas has some of the country’s most robust “stand your ground” laws, which “cannot be nullified by a jury or a progressive District Attorney.”

Here is Abbott’s complete statement:

“Texas has one of the strongest ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws of self-defense that a jury or a progressive District Attorney cannot nullify.

“Unlike the President or some other states, the Texas Constitution limits the Governor’s pardon authority to only act on a recommendation by the Board of Pardons and Paroles. However, Texas law DOES allow the Governor to request the Board of Pardons and Paroles to determine if a person should be granted a pardon. I have made that request and instructed the Board to expedite its review.

“I look forward to approving the Board’s pardon recommendation as soon as it hits my desk.

“Additionally, I have already prioritized reining in rogue District Attorneys, and the Texas Legislature is working on laws to achieve that goal.”

Travis County District Attorney Jose Garza, who brought the case against Perry, has faced criticism for allegedly pursuing charges against him for political reasons rather than on the case’s merits. Additionally, some have noted that Garza has received financial backing from progressive billionaire George Soros, Fox News said.

“Self-defense is a God-given right, not a crime. Unfortunately, the Soros-backed DA in Travis County cares more about the radical agenda of dangerous Antifa and BLM mobs than justice,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement to Fox News Digital after Perry’s verdict was announced.

“Right now we are completely focused on preparing for Daniel’s sentencing hearing,” O’Connell told Fox News Digital after Abbott’s tweet about a pardon.

“I visited Daniel in jail this morning. As you might expect, he is devastated. He spoke to me about his fears that he will never get to hug his mother again. He’s also crushed that this conviction will end his Army service; he loves being a Soldier,” O’Connell added.
