#Waukesha, Wis. Christmas parade massacre suspect Darrell Edward Brooks posted repeatedly in support of #BLM. His social media accounts were deactivated following his arrest. pic.twitter.com/36nLAm1l7e— Andy Ngô 🏳️🌈 (@MrAndyNgo) November 23, 2021
Brooks was also upset by the death of George Floyd, and was angry at the police, in ways many other people are angry. Here are a few posts collected by another Twitter user:
If posts like these make someone a dangerous radical -- which is how Ngo and other right-wingers are trying to portray him -- then there are a lot of dangerous radicals in America. I guess I'm one of them.
But this is my favorite Ngo gotcha:
Darrell Edward Brooks, the man who was taken into custody by police over the #Waukesha Christmas parade mass casualty event, had posted a quote in 2016 on a now-deactivated Facebook account: "Run them over. Keep traffic flowing & don't slow down for any of these idiots..." #BLM pic.twitter.com/d8bYZPv8bd— Andy Ngô 🏳️🌈 (@MrAndyNgo) November 22, 2021
Yes, it appears that Brooks posted this:
But Ngo doesn't tell you is that this was written by a cop. The St. Paul Pioneer Press reported this in 2016:
A St. Paul police sergeant resigned Wednesday after he apologized last month for posting on Facebook “Run them over” in advance of a Black Lives Matter St. Paul march.I'm not saying Brooks was a good person. He has a long criminal record and was out on bail after an incident in which he reportedly ran over the mother of a child of his. But he posted this because he was angry that a cop was recommending running demonstrators over, not because he thought it was a swell idea.
An internal affairs investigation into Sgt. Jeffrey Rothecker was completed, but his resignation stopped the process, said Steve Linders, a St. Paul police spokesman....
... The Rothecker case began after someone with the screen name “JM Roth” made a comment about protesters on Facebook under a Pioneer Press article before a Jan. 18 unpermitted protest. The post referred to protesters as “idiots” and detailed what drivers could do to avoid being charged with a crime if their vehicles struck someone during the march.
Ngo is trying to bamboozle his fans into believing that this was a post in favor of using a car as a weapon. It wasn't.
