A disgraced police officer called on militia members and “lone wolf patriots” to bring their guns to Cleveland to do battle with black protesters at the Republican National Convention.
“I am encouraging patriots and Trump supporters and those that support liberty and freedom to come lawfully armed with lethal and non-lethal weaponry,” said Jim Stachowiak, a right-wing activist and former police officer, in a video posted on his YouTube channel.
Stachowiak, who has been banned from Facebook and charged with criminal defamation for falsely identifying a LinkedIn user as a terrorist, said Black Lives Matter activists — a group he calls “Black Lies Matter” — had threatened to kill Donald Trump.
“They have threatened to cause riots in Cleveland and nationwide,” said Stachowiak, who lost his police certification following a misconduct investigation after just three years as a public safety officer. “It is our sworn duty and obligation for all those like me and many of you who have taken the oath to defend this country against all enemies foreign and domestic.”
If ever there was a perfect example of a Donald Trump supporter it is this guy.
Now as it turns out there actually was a young black man, who may or may not have been loosely associated with BLM, who uploaded a video threatening to kill Trump back in May.
A ton of Right Wing media outlets ran with the story even though there is no proof the guy has any real affiliation with BLM.
Jesus can you imagine if a bunch of heavily armed racist rednecks show up in Cleveland to confront the combative Black Lives Matter protesters?
They are going to have to call in the Cleveland PD, the state police, and the freaking National Guard to finally get control back of their city.
P.S. After I wrote this post last night, and scheduled it to publish this morning, I came across a story of an actual person who tried to wrestle a gun away from a police officer in order to kill Donald Trump.
As it turns out he is white, British, and not affiliated with BLM in any way.Teen arrested at Trump rally in Vegas, intended to grab officer's gun & kill the candidate @jeffpeguescbs has more pic.twitter.com/qlGJ3hU7vk— CBS Evening News (@CBSEveningNews) June 20, 2016
