Imagine an armed group of Black Lives Matter protesters killing white Trump supporters.
The Fox so-called News talking heads heads' would explode.
But if the situation were reversed...
We don't have to imagine.
One BLM activist is dead after at least four Trump supporters recently attacked protesters.
In January, he joined the Albuquerque Tea Party board that characterized him as a "hard-core conservative".
His candidate bio states "No comment" as his political party and states he was an alternate delegate to "Political Convention 2016" without specifying which party's convention he served.
In a video being circulated on Twitter, Baca is featured assaulting three protesters attempting to remove a statue of 16th-century Spanish conquistador Juan de Oñate, notorious for massacring, dismembering, and enslaving thousands of Acoma Native Americans.
Witnesses claim Baca was armed with mace.
After throwing a woman to the ground, he drew a gun, but began to flee, at which time some protesters attempted to tackle him.
That's when he shot protester Scott Williams.
Then there's Daniel Peña, who reported on June 5 to a McAllen, Texas, BLM protest with a chainsaw shouting--referring to Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin's killing of George Floyd--"It was a f*cking n*gger and a bad cop."
"I'd want this guy with me in a ride or die moment."
Trumper Jacob Bracken pulled a gun on BLM protesters in Upland, California, and ordered protesters to "back the f*ck up!"
One of those counter-protesters, Denver Hinkston, said to local media outlet WCPO:
"You can have a conversation, but don't put 'Black Lives Matter' in it. Put 'Everyone's lives matter' in it. That's what gets everybody all upset."
We're hearing a lot about all the "looting" and "violent ANTIFA".
Yet the violence we're seeing in recent protests seems to be from Trump supporters and police, who are meeting pleas to reduce brutality with more brutality.
This is America now.
Could it be permanent?
