Semi-famous domestic terrorist, “animal rights advocate” and Huffington Post writer Andy Stepanian is back. Apparently he’s issuing public relations statements for Ferguson Protesters and and the release is an absolute whopper.
“Unfortunately, there have been attempts to draw misleading connections between this movement and today’s tragic events. Millions have stood together in acts of non-violent civil disobedience, one of the cornerstones of our democracy. It is irresponsible to draw connections between this movement and the actions of a troubled man who took the lives of these officers and attempted to take the life of his ex-partner, before ultimately taking his own. Today’s events are a tragedy in their own right. To conflate them with the brave activism of millions of people across the country is nothing short of cheap political punditry.
Stepanian continues by saying that we can’t allow ourselves to believe what the killer says his motivations were because it’ll just upset the families of people who scream “Burn this bitch down!”
“Elected officials and law enforcement leaders must not allow this narrative to continue, as it only serves to heighten tensions at a time when the families of those killed are in mourning.
