We live in such a despotic society these days that I am concerned to even tell you that I have met Enrique Tarrio (who happens to be an Afro-Cuban) and I found him to be very friendly, laid back, and welcoming person.
I have never seen him become agitated or aggressive. In my experience he has always conducted himself with respect.
However, it seems that the establishment has decided to label the ‘Proud Boys’ as a hate group or terror organization so if I were to endorse them (which I am not doing, I am just telling you I’ve hung out with Enrique and he is no monster (he was very polite in fact).
Now, destruction of property (that is not yours) is unethical and even if I am not a fan of the Marxist aims of the group whose flag was burned, I can not condone the destruction of their property.
Fox News is reporting:
‘Proud Boys leader Henry “Enrique” Tarrio will appear before a superior court judge in Washington, D.C., Tuesday, a day after he was arrested for allegedly burning a Black Lives Matter banner outside a historic Black church during demonstrations last month.
The 36-year-old from Miami returned to the nation’s capital this week ahead of additional protests planned by Trump supporters for Tuesday and Wednesday, as the newly sworn-in Congress will meet to officially count and ratify Electoral College votes as part of the final formal step before President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in on Jan. 20.
Heightened security measures are being taken around the Capitol Hill complex ahead of anticipated demonstrations connected to the Electoral College certification Wednesday, and Metropolitan Police has advised that there will be extensive parking restrictions and street closures throughout the District of Columbia.
This sure makes it sound like the establishment is at least a little shook ahead of this rally in DC. Remember, it was not long ago that hundreds of thousands of Trump supporters occupied the Capitol and outnumbered LE thousands to one.
I spoke with one person who attended and he explained how he thought it was obvious that the police and ‘authorities’ were no longer in control because of the sheer size of the crowd. There are some estimates that this crowd may be 4-10 times bigger than the Million MAGA march.
Fox News went on to explain:
Tarrio was arrested by Metro Police Department officers Monday “upon entering the District of Columbia and pursuant to a D.C. Superior Court Arrest Warrant,” police spokeswoman Alaina Gertz confirmed to Fox News. He was charged with destruction of property related to an offense that occurred on Saturday, Dec. 12, in the 900 block of 11th Street, Northwest.
A video circulated online in connection to the December incident at Asbury United Methodist Church showed a group of people call out, “We are proud of our boys” before pouring an apparent accelerant on a BLM banner and setting it ablaze in the street. Others cheered and cursed Antifa. Someone is seen walking up about a minute later and uses a fire extinguisher to put out the flames.
At the time of his arrest, police said Tarrio was found to be in possession of two high-capacity firearm magazines. He was additionally charged with possession of a high-capacity feeding device.
In a phone interview last month, Tarrio, who was in Miami at the time, told the Washington Post he was among the group of individuals who participated in burning the banner and that he would plead guilty to destruction of property, pay the church the cost of the banner and surrender to authorities if that criminal charge was filed.
The police department said in December that it was investigating the offense as potentially being motivated in whole or in part by hate or bias, though Tarrio has not been charged with a hate crime.’
Motivated by hate … why don’t you have a look at Enrique and tell me if he looks like a white supremacist:
Tarrio should be appearing before the judge right about the time that this piece was published.
