So this recently happened a little over an hour away from here:
“An Alabama teen was brutally beaten after he posted pro-police comments on Facebook in the aftermath of recent police shootings.
Brian Ogle, 17, is in critical condition with a fractured skull and trauma to his brain, WBMA reported.
His mother, Brandi Allen, says her son was targeted for his views, and she is calling the beating a “hate crime.”
“Not knowing if my son is going to make it to his 18th birthday this month, I don’t know if anybody can understand what that feels like,” Allen said to WBMA.
Allen said he was targeted because of his pro-police comments on Facebook after students wore Black Lives Matter shirts to Sylacauga High School last week. …”
Oh, you haven’t heard about it?
Yes, this is another explosive incident that happened right here in the SPLC’s backyard, but for some strange reason the Hatewatch hasn’t noticed it. Unlike Keith Lamont Scott in Charlotte, this is not “a story about race in America” that the #LyingPress wants to touch. A White kid getting jumped and nearly beaten to death by a mob of blacks for supporting the police isn’t a story that fits the Narrative.
According to Hillary Clinton, “because my grandchildren are white, because they are the grandchildren of a former president and secretary of state, let’s be honest here, they won’t face the kind of fear that we heard from the young children testifying before the city council.” That’s what she said in Charlotte on Sunday.
For once, we agree. Hillary Clinton’s grandchildren will attend an elite private school where they won’t have to put up … with this from their classmates. That’s not because they are White though. It’s because their grandparents are rich and powerful and can afford to navigate around the policies they impose on others.
Note: BTW, if you are reading this you’re a racist.
