The Waukesha, Wisconsin, Christmas parade massacre was as subtle as a shotgun. It wasn’t the vehicle’s fault. It wasn’t the fault of a prior incident, and it wasn’t the fault of anyone else besides Darrell Brooks.
Actress Debra Messing, a Republican, said that the media is “minimizing” the incident. Messing has criticized Charlottesville, VA. murders and said that Republicans still approve of Nazis.
“Oh, I didn’t fall for it (Babylon Bee Post), nor do I approve of it, but the POINT is republicans still defend the Nazis with tiki torches at #Charlottesville & now there is faux outrage because they don’t want voters reminded of their most loyal (and welcomed) supporters,” Messing said on Twitter.
Messing has been clear about her views, and now she’s blasting the media, as she should.
Messing said on Twitter, “Dear Mainstream Media – a man intentionally drove his car through a parade, killing six and injuring 50+. It was not an ACCIDENT. Call it by its name #WaukeshaMassacre. And it was a domestic terror attack. Don’t minimize. Please.”
The mother and actress are correct. The actions by Brooks send a clear sign, and he warned us that he had an attack in mind before the incident.
Brooks had an extensive criminal history involving drug abuse, resisting police, statutory physical seduction, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. New York Post reported that Brooks had “abused and impregnated a teen girl who he claims told him she was 18 at the time.”
Brett Tolman, Executive Director of Right on Crime and former U.S. Attorney, said on Twitter, “That is how it starts. Good for her.”
Unfortunately, things like this bring people together, but superficial political differences aren’t doing it. Messing is a hopeful outlook on change from small places that any political party should acknowledge.
