Here’s an example of the bullshit that Kevin Sutherland was spouting on his Facebook page on June 18 about Dylann Roof’s shooting spree in Charleston:
Did you hear that? According to Kevin Sutherland, the American flag represents a “more perfect Union,” and it was institutionalized racism that “cultivated” Dylann Roof. Sutherland was obviously a progressive who bought into the SPLC’s notion that the C of CC has spread a “false narrative of a victimized white majority under siege by allegedly violent people of color in the United States.”
Two weeks later, Kevin Sutherland was probably in a festive mood when he fatefully boarded the Washington Metro on July 4th in his beloved Washington, DC, along with one of those “allegedly violent people of color,” Jasper Spires:
“Jasper Spires boarded the Red Line Metro train at Rhode Island Avenue shortly before 1 p.m. on Saturday, joining fellow passengers from the District and elsewhere headed to various July 4 festivities, among them the Foo Fighters concert at RFK Stadium.
As the train rumbled toward its next stop at NoMa-Gallaudet, a three-minute ride, D.C. police said the 18-year-old Spires — who might have been high on synthetic drugs — tried to grab a cellphone tucked into the waistband of a recent American University graduate headed to a gathering with friends. …
Police and a witness interviewed said passengers trapped in the moving train huddled at both ends of the car and watched in horror as Spires allegedly punched 24-year-old Kevin Joseph Sutherland until he fell to floor, then stabbed him until he was dead. Court documents say the victim was cut or stabbed 30 or 40 times in the chest, abdomen, back, side and arms. Police said the assailant then threw the victim’s cellphone and returned to stomp on Sutherland’s body.”
Here’s what Kevin Sutherland had to say about gun control on his own personal website:
“Since I am in politics, there is one phrase coined by our Founding Fathers that really strikes me. When they founded this nation, they set out to create a “more perfect Union.” The important distinction in this phrase is that our Union is not perfect. More than 225 years later, despite so much change, this is still true. It is likely that we will never achieve absolute perfection, but I believe that the heart of American exceptionalism is that we never stop trying. If history is any guide, the forces for progress always succeed eventually, no matter how formidable their opposition is. Our fight is not merely for new gun control measures or even new mental health programs. It is for the creation of an even more perfect Union.
That is why I am a liberal and that is why I am in Newtown.”
As he was stabbed to death almost forty times by a black career criminal, one has to wonder whether in his last seconds on earth that it ever occurred to Kevin Sutherland that segregation or a gun may have saved his life, or that he would end up being featured on this website as a victim of black-on-white crime.
RIP Kevin Sutherland, martyr for “an even more perfect Union.” Gone, but not forgotten.
