Trump’s incessant calls to violence from supporters almost got a couple in Olympia, Washington killed this week.
32-year-old Daniel B. Rowe, a self-proclaimed white supremacist and Trump supporter, was arrested late Tuesday night for stabbing an interracial couple who were kissing outside of a bar. Police claim that though angered at the sight of a black man kissing a white woman, Rowe kept a calm facade until he was close enough to attack. He then screamed a racial slur, stabbed the couple and then ran off like the coward that he is.
The 47-year-old male victim chased after Rowe and was able to “trip him up,” police said, and he fell into a car knocking himself unconscious. The victim then waited there with his attacker until police arrived.
This has all the hallmarks of a hate crime,” said Deputy Prosecutor Joseph Wheeler. “This black-and-white couple was simply expressing their love for one another.
Thankfully neither victim was injured critically — the woman was grazed by the knife, and the man was stabbed in the hip. Both will be fine, but Rowe on the other hand… He will probably be locked up for awhile after he allegedly told police that if they released him he would kill Black Lives Matter protesters at an upcoming rally for Donald Trump. He also told police that he was a “member of a white supremacist group and that he swore a ‘blood oath’ to fight people of color in the streets.”
He says, ‘Yeah, I stabbed them. I’m a white supremacist,’ reports police spokesperson Lt. Paul Lower.
Police aren’t exactly sure what Rowe, who sports “White Power” and Confederate Flag tattoos, was actually doing in Olympia that night. They are assuming he is homeless, after being released from Washington State Penitentiary in Walla Walla, WA about 300 miles from Olympia.
Rowe was charged with two counts of 2nd-degree assault with a deadly weapon and remains in custody on $500,000 bond. Something tells me that “brotherhood” he swore a blood oath to will not be coming to his rescue anytime soon.
