Palin's response to this on her Facebook page was the following:
They're not protestors, they're rioters... and this changed some things!
Well at least she didn't call them "thugs."
Palin then links to her favorite new right wing outlet, that Independent Journal rag, where they essentially applaud this man's "courage" in standing up to the "rioters" and landing a blow for white people everywhere.
Now what I see in the video is the guy trying to clear a path through the crowd by brandishing his gun, and the crowd responds by closing in on him, with one woman saying "Don't you do it sir, don't do it."
Before things get out of control, which they were clearly about to do, a police officer on a bike rides up and talks the man.
We do not actually see the car drive off, however according to The Daily Mail it did:
A white man brandishing a gun was filmed driving slowly through a crowd of demonstrators as violence erupted in Charlotte on Wednesday night.
A video of the alarming moment was posted on social media by writer Heather Head in the midst of the chaos.
'White dude drives into crowd of peaceful protesters, draws gun, allowed to drive away alive. With my own eyes. #CharlotteProtest,' she wrote alongside the shocking clip.
The man was surrounded by protesters who were marching against the deadly shooting of black man Keith Lamont Scott by a cop on Tuesday afternoon.
Also according to the Daily Mail North Carolina law states the following:
'You may not carry a weapon at a parade, funeral procession, picket line, or other demonstration, except for guns carried on a rack in a pickup truck.
That means that there is virtually NO doubt that if that man had been a black man he would have been pulled from the car and arrested.
However since he is a white dude the fact that he can brandish a weapon to scare off African American protesters and then drive away is worthy of celebration by the likes of Sarah Palin.
And remember this was a protest over the shooting of Keith Lamont Scott, because the police claim he was armed and did not drop his weapon.
So yeah, I think I get the message here.
