I am not sure what is the chicken, and what is the egg, but between public gossip and Larry Johnson tweets, there seems to be a movement claiming George Floyd was a Masonic Sacrifice.
Notable person making a claim.
The best source I could find was canyon news
The rest are what you would expect to find on youtube or written by someone who is not a journalist, but, wants to publish an article and get paid.
I split the title into two parts because I doubt there is going to be anything satisfactory that will conclude he was a sacrifice. If he was, and the purpose was to start a Race war, as is claimed by some, I doubt they would openly admit it. In the same vein of claims of Masonic Sacrifice however, are the claims that Floyd himself was a Mason, of which there are some claims he is photographed making "Masonic symbols"
If I have it straight, in 2016 Stephen Jackson posted an image in commemoration of his father, which seems to indicate that his father was a Mason, and also, that he, Stephen, was going to follow in his footsteps. See link 3 by canyon news. Original Stephen Jackson tweet appears to be April 17, 2016.
My Fathers Mason brothers 33 gave me something to cherish. My dads gear. Will be following your footsteps soon pop. Rest easy. Salute to all his Mason brothers.
Larry Johnson retweeted a screenshot of the post saying
Just like Travyon Martin y'all looting and rioting and looting over another Freemason Sacrifice to bring you closer to dying in the street.
Canyon news was able to verify that Johnson's tweet was authentic, but could not verify that the screenshot of the alleged Stephen Jackson Masonic tweet was authentic.
Stephen Jackson posted to instagram in late May this image Floyd with hand symbols and captioned it
I keep posting so yall can see my brother is his element and not on the ground begging for his life. Really Real. Floyd Da God. Memories to hold on to
This statement appears to be taken by conspiracy theorists (or at least Larry Johnson) to insinuate that Stephen Jackson sacrificed George Floyd. So the 2016 tweet insinuates that Jackson wanted to become a Freemason. The second post seems to insinuate Floyd was a Freemason, and Larry Johnson seems to be insinuating that Jackson became a Mason, Floyd was a Mason, and Jackson was part of sacrificing Floyd.
The canyon articles also points out that conspiracy theorists use the fact that the Floyd family attorney is a "famous Prince Hall Mason", and 2 of Floyd's children have the middle names "Mason" to fuel their speculation.
As far as I can tell it is all speculation fueling this rumor but I know nothing of the Freemasons, Jackson, or Johnson, or even really Floyd. It seems weird that there would be a mixture of Satanic and Masonic symbols... The Freemasons are not Satanic that I know of?
Would it be a fair judgement to say that this conspiracy is without merit?
Polifact rated the rumour as false, but their search was simply asking a single Masonic lodge if Floyd was a member there. Polifact
