Overnight, a nearsighted Nazi innocently and repeatedly slammed his U-Haul truck into a barrier just a few hundred feet from the White House, apparently while on his way to a Bund meeting.
At least that is what right wing-nut Twitter would have you believe… but the driver was charged with threatening the lives of President Biden and VP Harris.
“The driver of a truck that crashed into security barriers near the White House on Monday night was arrested on multiple charges, including threatening to kill or harm a president, vice president or family member, officials said.
A Nazi flag was seized by authorities at the scene of the incident, which left no one injured.
A law enforcement official told NBC News that the suspect made threatening statements about the White House at the scene but was quickly detained. The truck was found to contain no weapons or explosives, the official said, without providing further details about the incident.
Asked for their reaction, the official said: “I don’t think there’s any place for a Nazi flag or the statements that he made.”
Stalwart defenders of Nazi bad-drivers on Twitter contend that the Nazi banner was simply a prop in a staged false flag operation meant to discredit and smear all peace loving swastika fans, because the flag had been folded, and should not have been placed on the ground while the cop finished his search of the truck… or something.
Here’s the Tweet and some reactions.
The driver works for the FBI and the flag was from the FBI prop room.

Sure, Will, totally not a test run.
“They seized a Trump flag.” Fixed it for you.

Yeah, police always lay out evidence on the ground so it can be contaminated for a photo op. Someone took false flag to New heights.

What was he supposed to do, Ultra MAGA, stuff it in his pocket?
That’s now a Republican flag

No Maga hats, Confederate flags, or KKK robes. The FBI needs to do better!

100% manipulation and propaganda. Will we be seeing more 'ships on fire'🚢🔥 like that Nova Scotia photo on 🚚, no doubt symbolic of 1917 -which 'disrupted the communications' emblematic of the coming 'downing the Internet'.
US loves Nazis and always uses them as a tool.

Try tween something coherent, Earnest.
I am sure there was a video of someone taking the flag from another source and perfectly laying in at the fore view of the camera shot.

And I’m sure you are a Trump fan.
They were just moving the flag from Harlan Crow's private memorabilia collection to Clarence & Ginni's office stash and got lost. All those neoclassical buildings look alike.

🤔 Now ether’s an alternative explanation I hadn’t considered…
This does sound a bit fishy.
I’m trying to imagine neo-Nazis wanting to promote their cause saying “Make sure we bring a flag, so they know it’s us.”

The point is he had the flag, Sancho, not that he was party functionary. 🙄
They exude desperation. “Look here, not there” is such an old tactic. 🙄

Exactly right, Carolina.
According to the GOP, he could just be a collector of items and ideologies he abhors.

It’s amazing the mental gymnastics right wing nuts will engage in when confronted with a fact they don’t like…
