BREAKING: #Trump supporter in #ElPaso profiled today by Washington Examiner, seen waving gun outside community center targeted in recent wave of far-Right conspiracy theory smears. Man's truck was covered in InfoWars, Ted, Cruz + pro-Trump images. itsgoingdown.org/armed-trump-su…
We talked to people on the ground in #ElPaso, who told us that they saw Thomas Bartram, 21, a Trump supporter who was profiled in the Washington Examiner today, in the street with a gun. Police later stopped him and then proceed to let him go.
Bartram was quoted as saying, "he was “an open-carry kind of guy” at political rallies but had opted not to bring his gun because of the nature of the tragedy." He is pictured giving Alt-Right "OK" hand sign, same symbol used by Christchurch killer. washingtonexaminer.com/news/trump-sup…
When stopped by police, Bartram was outside of a community center right next to the border. The Casa Carmelita center was one of the organizations which was listed as supporting the 'Border Resistance Tour,' which was smeared as an "antifa terror training camp" by the far-Right.
Bartram's truck featured a popular meme of Trump as Rambo, a Ted Cruz sign, and also numerous InfoWars stickers. One featuring an image of Washington states: "Me and my homies would have been stackin' bodies by now."
