Darrell Brooks Jr, the man charged with intentionally driving into a Christmas parade on November 21, is facing five counts of first-degree intentional homicide and additional charges as the case moves forward. Prior to the massacre, Brooks was involved in a domestic disturbance where a knife was reportedly involved; however, contrary to other media reports, a police car chase did not precede the incident.
Brooks has an extensive history as a criminal and sex offender. Before the attack, Brooks was on $1000 bail for running over a woman who refused to get into his car.
According to a statement by the Milwaukee County Office of the District Attorney, “The State’s bail recommendation in this case was inappropriately low in light of the nature of the recent charges and the pending charges against Mr. Brooks.”
During a press conference, Waukesha Police Chief Dan Thompson said that, contrary to the recent charges of intentional homicide, “There is no evidence that this is a terrorist incident.”
Left-wing outlets also initially called the massacre an “accident,” false reporting that Brooks was being chased by police, which even prompted left-wing activist Debra Messing to call them out.
“Dear Mainstream Media—a man intentionally drove his car through a parade killing 6 and injuring 50+. It was not an ACCIDENT,” Messing tweeted. “Call it by its name #WaukeshaMassacre.”
“And it was a domestic terror attack. Don’t minimize. Please,” she added.
Senior Editor of Human Events, Jack Posobiec, also tweeted on the lopsided coverage of the incident, posting Wikipedia’s description of the 2021 Waukesha “car crash” versus the 2017 Charlottesville “car attack.” The latter was also considered an act of white supremacy, while no mention of motive was mentioned in Brooks’ crime.
Brooks’ social media accounts have since been deactivated, but many posts have been preserved. Many of his posts were black nationalist and anti-white. In one post, under his rap name “MathBoi Fly,” he wrote,
“So when we start bakk knokkin white people TF out ion wanna hear it…the old white ppl 2 KNOKK DEM TF OUT!! PERIOD.” (The tweet has now been removed).
In another post, Brooks expressed black nationalist antisemitic views. One post read that “negros” are the “true hebrews,” and Hitler did the right thing in killing six million “false Jews.”
In another Facebook post, Brooks agreed with Kaepernick’s call for “revolution,” saying “f**k Amerikkka,” and suggested that whites are the “real savages.”
One BLM Activist Vaun Mayes took to social media saying in a video that “It sounds like the revolution has started in Wisconsin.” He linked the massacre to the verdict in the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse.
“We may have to wait and see what they say about why this happened. But it sounds possible that the revolution has started in Wisconsin. It started with this Christmas parade.”
