’Tis the (Mad) Season in Waukesha

Darrell Brooks Jr. really gives the face tattoo community a bad name to say nothing of Darrell Brooks Sr.

Brooks, who faces six counts of intentional homicide for driving through a Waukesha, Wisconsin, Christmas parade, really tarnishes the reputation of one group the information guardians refuse to attach him to: Black Lives Matter.

Maybe we discover he killed white people so close to Kenosha and just days after the Rittenhouse verdict not because of his expressed beliefs but because he, like so many of us, just really hates jumpstarting the Christmas season prior to Thanksgiving. But the career criminal’s social media suggests something beyond a Grinch at work.

Brooks posted numerous items in support of Black Lives Matter, a middle finger emoji next to the policeman emoji, memes on “White Privilege 101” and “Hitler Knew Who the Real Jews Were” (octothorped “#research”), and statements that advocated knocking white people out. He confessed that he “wasn’t surprised 1 bit” in expressing displeasure over the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict.

On much thinner gruel did the president of the United States dub Rittenhouse as part of a group of “white supremacists.” But none dare call Darrell Brooks Jr. a “black supremacist” despite embracing disturbing racism online and then killing six white people.

It’s not as though he treated African Americans much better.

“I’m pimping on the bitch,” he said on social media regarding his oldest daughter’s mother. “I take her to Nevada. I get crack. I didn’t know the bitch was 16 at the time. She gave a statement to the police and told them, yeah, she was hoeing, that I was pimping, and that she was 16.” The authorities indicate 15, but who’s counting?

Earlier this month, a Milwaukee prosecutor requested $1,000 bond, a consequence of the case backlog from state employees using coronavirus as an excuse to play hooky and Black Lives Matter’s baleful influence on the criminal justice system, after Brooks allegedly ran over another baby mama. “The woman alleged to be the victim in that incident was the mother of Brooks’ child,” NBC News reports. “Court records allege that Brooks punched her and later ran over her with his car in a gas station parking lot. The documents say police noticed dried blood on her face, a swollen lip and tire tracks on her left pants leg.” 

The marchers in Waukesha could not see what was coming behind them. But prosecutors could surely see the cretin in front of them. Brooks allegedly ran over a human being earlier this month. What happened in Waukesha was predictable and preventable.

Brooks, after all, looks like a human cliché. Aspiring gangsta rapper? Check. Numerous paternity cases? Check. Facial tattoo? Check. Drug charges? Check.

Exactly the type of person you might judge prone to running over Dancing Grannies and school children at a Christmas parade ran over Dancing Grannies and school children at a Christmas parade. Significantly, he also looks not all that dissimilar from the sampling of other Black Lives Matter supporters in the news as of late. Nobody, at least nobody in the establishment media that coined the phrase “mostly peaceful protest,” wants to admit this inconvenient truth.

Joseph Rosenbaum? Child rapist. Jump Kick Man? Holder of a War and Peace criminal record. Anthony Huber? Domestic abuser. Does it not tell us something that all of the identifiable anti-police protestors encountering Kyle Rittenhouse in a violent way on August 25, 2020, boasted extensive criminal charges?

It turns out that many of the “protestors” condemning the police with the volume turned up loudest do so because the police thwarted their criminal behavior. A “duh” quality colors this revelation. Criminals hate cops. You don’t say?

Surely a majority of the group’s supporters wants cops not to hassle minorities, refrain from excessive force, and treat African Americans with dignity. But one cannot ignore that when Black Lives Matter supporters made news in Kenosha and Waukesha, they all boasted rap sheets.   

Yet, politicians and the press refuse to talk about the criminal presence, online and in real life, pushing Black Lives Matter. The reality that the high concentration of criminals among the legitimate activists protest the police through demonstration tactics foreign to Martin Luther King, such as looting, arson, assault, vandalism, and use of the n-word the way others use “the” and “is,” also buttresses this thesis.

Black Lives Matter seeks to defund the police, eliminate cash bail for most offenses, and de-incarcerate criminals. Alleged hit-and-run murderer Darrell Brooks Jr., free on a pittance bail from allegedly running over his ex despite outstanding warrants, a recent firearms charge, and a lengthy criminal record, shows the effectiveness of that movement in achieving its goals.
