Surber, as conservatives are wont to do, chose the “socially-acceptable n-word alternative,” the word “thug,” to describe Michael Brown, who was gunned down in the street by Officer Darren Wilson. Falling in line with the right-wing mantra regarding black people, Surber explained that Wilson “had to put this animal down.”
This summer I had an epiphany as I watched packs of racists riot in Ferguson, Missouri, in support of a gigantic thug who was higher than a kite when he attacked Ferguson Police Department Officer Darren Wilson, who unfortunately had to put this animal down.
My realization was I don’t care about police brutality anymore. I don’t care about the militarization of the cops, either. Give them what they need to keep society safe from the hundred thousand or so thugs who want to rape, murder and maim decent people. Most of the victims are non-white. And poor. And male. And young.
“My initial reaction was Michael Brown deserved to die and I was right. His death was a justifiable homicide,” Surber added.
After facing criticism, Surber offered the following “correction”:
UPDATE: I made a factual error. Michael Brown was not an animal but a man. Big. Brutal. High. His death was a justifiable homicide and not a putting down.
We have reached out to Surber for comment, but have not yet heard back from him.
