Whenever police are ambushed, and the suspect(s) are black, there’s a rush to try to pin the shooting on the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement. But what happens when the shooter is white?
For one thing, he gets taken alive. White privilege is a powerful shield.
The Daily Kos reports:
I woke up to the news this morning that two Iowa police offers were shot and killed overnight, ambush-style. As of 9am ET, the gunman was still on the loose. Predictably, the comments to any news story about this were disgusting, and many comments were aimed at blaming #BlackLivesMatter for the shootings.
I’m going to assume that the hateful anti-BLM comments were made prior to the revelation of who the gunman is. It turns out the suspect is Scott Michael Greene, a white dude who got pissed off for being to told to stop waving his Confederate flag in front of black folks at a football game.
Oh, and he supports Donald Trump.
And speaking of the civility of those who plan to vote for Trump in a few days, we have this story out of Greenville, Mississippi where the Hopewell MB caught on fire. Not only that, it was vandalized. Someone left their mark by spray painting two words on the side of the church: Vote Trump.
It’s clear that most of potential Trump voters not only share his traits and beliefs, but are just plain savages who would throw their feces at people if they wanted to. If Trump wins, then his screw-up followers will win too. This is why voting next week is essentially vital. These “people”, and use that term very loosely must not win.
One more thing. Those who still insist that the Iowa police shooter is a BLM supporter, must still haven’t bothered to research to find his true identity and background. I bet some who do will change their tune and either praise him for his ‘patriotism’ or curse out the so-called ‘liberal media’ for racism against white people. Or maybe they would get quiet after embarrassing themselves. Worst yet, they would still find ways to blame BLM for the shootings showing off their ignorance and hatred. And I can guess that they are likely Trump supporters themselves.
