Parade Tragedy Suspect’s Social Media Posts Show BLM Support

Published

Waukesha

The man who allegedly drove a red SUV through a Christmas parade in Wisconsin on Sunday evening had numerous posts on social media expressing support for Black Lives Matter and “black nationalist rhetoric” along with disdain for Republican politicians and conservative media.

The suspect is currently in police custody after the incident resulted in the deaths of at least five people and injuries to more than 40 others.

“A lone subject intentionally drove his maroon SUV through barricades into a crowd of people that was celebrating the Waukesha Christmas Parade which resulted in killing five individuals and injuring 48 additional individuals,” Thompson said at a press conference. “I just received information that two of the 48 are children and they’re in critical condition.”

According to the online news outlet Heavy, the suspect “posted anti-police rhetoric” and “black nationalist rhetoric” on social media. He also “posted a photoshopped fake image of former Republican Governor Scott Walker as a Nazi.”

One Twitter user posted some of the suspect’s now-deleted Facebook posts, which showed extreme support for BLM.

The suspect’s support for BLM is particularly notable because the incident occurred in Waukesha, Wisconsin, which is just an hour drive away from Kenosha, Wisconsin, where Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted on all charges – just two days before the parade attack – for shootings that killed two men and injured a third during last year’s BLM riots.

The suspect additionally has a long criminal history, having “been charged with or convicted on an array of charges over the past 22 years, including battery, domestic violence, cocaine possession and resisting arrest in several jurisdictions in Wisconsin,” The New York Times reported. “He has served at least two jail sentences and spent years on probation and in court-mandated work-release and anger management programs.”

The suspect had been released from jail on Friday – the same day Rittenhouse was acquitted – after posting bail that had been set at $1,000 for three misdemeanor and two felony charges, including felony bail jumping.

The Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm’s office described the $1,000 bail as “inappropriately low” in a statement on Monday.

The statement said, “On November 5, 2021, the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s office issued against [the suspect] charges of Second Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety, Felony Bail Jumping, Battery, Obstructing an Officer and Disorderly Conduct … The most recent case against [the suspect] was appropriately charged. The state made a cash bail request in this case of $1,000, which was set by the court. The defendant posted $1,000 cash bail on November 11, resulting in his release from custody.”

“The State’s bail recommendation in this case was inappropriately low in light of the nature of the recent charges and the pending charges against [the suspect],” the statement added. “The bail recommendation in this case is not consistent with the approach of the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office toward matters involving violent crime, nor was it consistent with the risk assessment of the defendant prior to setting of bail.”

    These are really sick people if they think what happened was a good thing. SUPPORT WHAT? The scum of the earth that has always been in trouble with the law. When Soros paid his bail,it probably included instructions on how to get to the parade. Sick sick people to support a monster like this.

    The Black terrorist in the 6 Waukesha 1st degree murders as well as the 46 other’s that were injured showed support for BLM and Black Nationalism as well as a disdain for conservative values (that’s code for ‘he hates white people’). Surprise, surprise. (1) When is MSM going to identify his race? (2) When is MSM going to call it a terror attack? If a white guy drove an SUV through a Juneteenth Celebration killing and injuring as many, how would that be reported? (3) A BLM spokesman has already said this was linked to the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict and “Waukesha was the start of a revolution”. When is that going to be addressed by MSM or the DNC who controls it? (4) When is MSM going to acknowledge that Blacks commit 80% of all violent crime?

Democrats Introduce ‘Transgender Bill Of Rights’

Published

on

On Tuesday, House Democrats introduced a “Transgender Bill of Rights” to “protect and codify the rights of transgender and nonbinary people under the law and ensure their access to medical care, shelter, safety, and economic security.”

Led by Democrat Reps. Pramila Jayapal (WA), David Cicilline (RI), Marie Newman (IL), Mark Takano (CA), and Ritchie Torres (NY), HR 1209 proposes “amending the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex, including gender identity and sex characteristics in public accommodations and federally funded programs and activities.”

“As we witness Republicans and an extremist Supreme Court attack and roll back the fundamental rights of trans people across our country, and as state legislatures across the country target our trans community with hateful, bigoted, and transphobic attacks, we are standing up and saying enough is enough,” said Jayapal, the chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and co-chair of the Transgender Equality Task Force.

“Our Trans Bill of Rights says clearly to the trans community across the country that we see you and we will stand with you to ensure you are protected and given the dignity and respect that every person should have,” Jayapal added.

The bill seeks to increase the ability of children to get permanent and life changing surgeries by “eliminating unnecessary governmental restrictions on the provision of, and access to, gender-affirming medical care and counseling for transgender and nonbinary adults, adolescents, and children.”

The bill will additionally ensure that biological male students are allowed to compete in girls’ sports by amending federal “education laws to ensure that they protect students from discrimination based on sex, including gender identity and sex characteristics, and guarantee students’ right to participate in sports on teams that best align with their gender identity.”

Federal education laws will also be amended to allow students to :use school facilities that best align with their gender identity,” meaning that biological males would be allowed to use girls’ restrooms and locker rooms.

The bill expands beyond “transgender rights” to also ban states from making laws restricting abortion by “codifying the right to abortion.”
