With reporters looking at the social media postings of cops recently, I figured I'd check in with the NYPD cop message board THE RANT & see what they're up to nowadays. And unsurprisingly, it's pretty much filled with bigotry & far right politics. lerant.proboards.com/board/9/rant
This board seems to be the newest version of THEE RANT which had to get shut down for being so racist & bigoted that it was becoming embarrassing to the NYPD.
Since it's #PrideMonth , let's start with a recent post about NYC Council Speaker Corey Johnson asking NYPD leader O Neill to apologize for the raids that sparked the Stonewall Riots. Of course, cops hate it & one cop claims he was there at Stonewall & was about to shoot people!
When it comes to the Central Park 5 case, the cops on THE RANT absolutely HATE the fact that they were exonerated, & they hate both Ken Burns' doc & Ava Duvernay's #WhenTheySeeUs. They claim that the CP5 were "violent savages" & that Linda Fairstein did nothing wrong.
NYPD cops also are unsurprisingly sympathetic to the Proud Boys. They're pissed at the idea of the Proud Boys being classified as "extremists." One cop even says "I have a lot in common with the [Proud Boys] I talked to." Your daily reminder that cops & fascists get along great!
The harshest criticism of the Proud Boys that one cop had was that "They give caucasians a bad name." Other cops said they'd join the Proud Boys if they could & that they "commend them" since they "legally bait ANTIFA communists."
Of course, NYPD cops hate anti-fascists & fantasize about inflicting severe brutality against antifa activists (& against leftist protesters in general).
And of course, like every fascist group, NYPD cops love a good anti-Semitic conspiracy theory. Some of them believe that Charlottesville/Unite The Right was an anti-white, George Soros-funded false flag event.
NYPD cops think that Daniel Pantaleo (the cop who killed #EricGarner) did nothing wrong & is being scapegoated. They call Eric Garner "fatso" & despite NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio giving NYPD whatever they want, the cops STILL call him a "socialist, openly-cop-hating" mayor.
In response to a video of young people in Chicago getting slightly turnt up on a street, the cops couldn't help but say some anti-Black comments.
Feel free to look through the message board yourselves & post all the fascist/racist/sexist/homophobic/transphobic/xenophobic/bigoted/etc stuff you find. Trust me. You won't have to search too hard.
