Lawsuits Paint Daunte Wright as Violent Offender but Dems Who Went to His Funeral Stay Silent

In an effort to advance their systemic racism narrative, leftists have attempted to paint Daunte Wright as a hero and martyr ever since he was killed by police in April. As it turns out, Wright does not appear to be the model citizen that they would have us believe.

According to the Daily Mail, Wright already had a warrant out for his arrest when he was apprehended and killed by Minneapolis police officer Kim Potter, who allegedly mistook her handgun for her Taser. Potter resigned following the shooting and has been charged with second-degree manslaughter.

In 2019, Wright reportedly appeared in court after attempting to rob a woman at gunpoint.

That had already been reported in the months following Wright’s death. Now, brand new lawsuits allege that Wright was also involved in two shootings.

The first lawsuit accuses Wright and another man of being involved in a carjacking in March, just weeks before Wright’s death.

Wright and his companion approached a man named Joshua Hodges while he was sitting in his car, the lawsuit says. The companion then reportedly opened Hodges’ car door and opened fire, striking him in the leg.

While Wright is not accused of shooting Hodges, he allegedly assaulted him before stealing his cellphone, wallet and car. Hodges was hospitalized for two weeks with his injuries, which included a broken fibula from the bullet, according to Fox News.

A second lawsuit alleges that Wright shot 16-year-old Caleb Livingston in the head in 2019. The two were previously acquainted, according to Livingston’s mother.

“The lawsuit alleges the pair had a ‘falling out’ that came to a head after her son beat up Wright in front of a group,” the Daily Mail reported. “Wright allegedly retaliated by shooting Livingston outside a gas station in Minneapolis.”

The effects of this shooting were even more disastrous. Fox News reported that Livingston remains “in a ‘vegetative state’ known as unresponsive wakefulness syndrome.”

It is clear that Wright had a long criminal record and presented a danger to the people around him. This has not stopped the left from dishonestly lifting him up as a hero.

Minnesota Democrats including Gov. Tim Walz, Sens. Amy Klobuchar and Tina Smith, Rep. Ilhan Omar and state Attorney General Keith Ellison attended Wright’s funeral, Fox News reported.

None of them have issued any statements condemning his past acts of violence.

It is unclear how much of Wright’s criminal record had been communicated to Potter. However, when a man with an arrest warrant resists an officer and gets into his car, one can see why that officer would be concerned.

As many people have seen and heard by now, the body cam footage of the incident shows Potter shouting “Taser” before shooting Wright. Most reasonable viewers would agree that the video seems to depict an unfortunate mistake, not any sort of malice on Potter’s part.

However, Democrats have pushed the narrative that this tragedy was undoubtedly the result of racism.

“We know that this tragedy is connected to the deep and systemic racism in our society that black people in Minnesota and across this country face every single day,” Walz said at Wright’s funeral.

To be clear, none of this is to say that Wright deserved to die. While his death was certainly a tragedy, it is also important to consider the entire picture when examining his life and death.

Democrats should not be expected to bring up Wright’s criminal record at his funeral, as that is clearly not the appropriate time for such a discussion.

However, months removed from the incident, it would seem appropriate for politicians who attended an alleged criminal’s funeral to at least acknowledge that they do not condone all of his actions.

Instead, leftist politicians have ignored Wright’s checkered past, seemingly hoping that it would never come up.

It’s in the open now, and it’s time to acknowledge that Wright did not carry himself like the hero the left has portrayed.

Tyranny: Concerned Parents Arrested After School Board Cuts Off Comments on Trans, CRT Policies

Two Virginia parents protesting critical race theory and transgender policy proposals at their children’s schools were arrested Tuesday during a meeting of the Loudoun County School Board. The public comment session was held so parents could voice their concerns over the teaching of CRT as well as a new policy on “transgender and gender-expansive students.” Instead, the board ended the meeting midway and two parents were arrested. Two arrests made at the Loudoun County, Virginia school board meeting after it was declared an unlawful assembly and some parents here to protest against critical race theory and a transgender policy refused to leave right away #CriticalRaceTheory pic.twitter.com/dsZDrqJ0Gp — Gabriella Borter (@gabriellaborter) June 22, 2021 A total of 259 people had signed up to offer public comments, but the meeting was shut down after just 51 had spoken, according to Fox News. Ian Prior, a father of two students and a spokesman for the parent advocacy group Fight for Schools, slammed the board for refusing to allow parents to have a say in how their children are educated on controversial topics such as critical race theory and transgenderism. Prior told Fox News that it’s imperative for parents to “get a seat at the table” to help shape what their children learn in the classroom. Otherwise, schools become vehicles for the mass brainwashing of children with destructive left-wing propaganda. https://youtu.be/AntKpOTq0Fc The brouhaha at the Loudoun County School Board meeting came after former Republican state Sen. Dick Black slammed the board for suspending teacher Tanner Cross in May for stating at a school board meeting that he doesn’t believe “a biological boy can be a girl and vice-versa.” Two weeks ago, a judge ordered Cross’ school to reinstate him, saying his statements were constitutionally protected free speech under the First Amendment.

Recently released videos prove what conservatives have been saying for months now: Trump supporters were not the only ones at the Capitol on Jan. 6. Two leftists infiltrated the Jan. 6 mob that stormed the Capitol and later said they told the FBI how to “infiltrate Trump rallies.” The two men are Walter Masterson and Peter Scattini and a quick look skim through their respective Twitter feeds shows that they are, indeed, leftists. It’s been stoked by the media & by the president. It goes beyond institutional distrust & disgust. So many are painting these protestors as a monolith, when in reality it was an amalgam of families, business owners & anarchists who believed they were fighting for “their” America — Peter Scattini (@jpscattini) January 7, 2021 COVID Nurse at the MAGA Rally does not believe in wearing a mask. pic.twitter.com/1SvKyFpPCf — Walter Masterson (@waltermasterson) December 13, 2020 Multiple videos on Scattini’s YouTube channel show him and Masterson — disguised as reporters from One America News Network — asking questions to a number of Trump supporters outside the Capitol on Jan. 6. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6uCSMnHO7w&t=1556s An additional video blog posted on Feb. 17 features Scattini explaining how FBI agents approached the two men after their Jan. 6 stunt. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WajJZZfoLXg “They introduced themselves as two agents of the FBI and one officer of the NYPD and asked if they could come inside and, of course, we said yes,” Scattini said. “We talked to them for about an hour, we are not in any trouble, but that was super weird.” “Walter is giving them tips on how to infiltrate Trump rallies.” This lines up with a recent assertion made by Fox News personality Tucker Carlson that the FBI had agents on the inside during the Jan. 6 incursion. “Strangely, some of the key people who…
