A professor from Rhode Island has proven once again why so many folks think liberalism, especially in the era of Trump, is a mental illness by stating that he believes the murder of a Trump supporter in a Patriot Prayer hat was totally justified because the victim was a “fascist.”
Erik Loomis, a professor at the University of Rhode Island, made the controversial statement in response to a comment that was left on his blog posted entitled, “Why Was Michael Reinoehl Killed?”
via Fox News:
The post questioned whether police deliberately “murdered” 48-year-old Michael Reinoehl, the man who fatally shot Aaron “Jay” Danielson on Aug. 29, the night Trump supporters clashed with backers of Black Lives Matter in Portland.
“I am extremely anti-conspiracy theory. But it’s not a conspiracy theory at this point in time to wonder if the cops simply murdered him,” Loomis wrote. “The police is shot through with fascists from stem to stern. They were openly working with the fascists in Portland, as they were in Kenosha which led to dead protestors.”
By “fascists,” Loomis is ostensibly referring to Trump supporters and members of Patriot Prayer, a group founded by conservative activist and former Washington Senate candidate Joey Gibson. The group has been portrayed by the mainstream media and the Southern Poverty Law Center as a far-right hate group, though Gibson has denied this characterization.
A person left a comment on the blog post that said, “Erik, he shot and killed a guy.”
““[Reinoehl] killed a fascist. I see nothing wrong with it, at least from a moral perspective,” the professor replied.
Now, you’d think that someone like this who received serious criticism for supporting a politically motivated murder would eventually walk back the statement after realizing how cray it is, but not Loomis.
He went on to pen another blog post saying he wasn’t going to be intimidated by “fascists” trying to “cancel him.”
This man is educating future generations of Americans, folks. Let that sink in a little.
