Yet another case of a politically motivated racist trying to kill people has occurred, when Daniel B. Rowe attacked an interracial couple for having the nerve to kiss each other in public.
Rowe only managed to graze the female, but seriously stabbed the male. Afterwards, Rowe tried to escape but the male victim tripped Rowe as he was running away, which sent him head-first into a close by parked car and promptly knocked him unconscious until authorities arrived and arrested him.
Rowe had only moved into the area approximately three weeks earlier. He claimed that he had been “responding to reports of anti-police graffiti in the area.”
He was there with the intent to kill, because of graffiti. That’s a mark of a sick mind. Police didn’t need his help to deal with graffiti, but when it comes to your average Trump-supporting white supremacist like Rowe, it’s less about justice and more about sport. He was hunting people based on skin color.
Rowe’s victims are expected to make a full recovery, as both of them sustained non-life threatening injuries during the attack. All they were doing was engaging in a minor public display of affection by kissing each other. There’s nothing about that which is “anti-police” so it’s going to be hard to convince a courtroom that this was not purely motivated by racism.
After his arrest, Rowe said that he also planned on going to Donald Trump rallies and “stomping out” more of the Black Lives Matter group. I can’t wait to hear from Republicans how not-racist their party is, despite the fact theirs is the only party that has these people in it.
It also doesn’t help that Rowe has white supremacist tattoos all over his body. Confederate flags, the word “skinhead” and the phrase “white power” were noticed by authorities during the arrest. Rowe later confessed to being a part of a white supremacist group. He had taken a “blood oath” with them to fight minorities on the street.
Trump probably won’t be president. Just imagine, though, if he was. People are already engaging in activities like this, by being emboldened by the conversion of the Republican party into the new White Supremacist party. If they were allowed to gain power, this kind of behavior would only increase, and they’d do nothing about it.
