Strange Facts in the Brooklyn Subway Attack

The assailant left a lot of evidence behind, and his motive appears to be racist black supremacy.

At least 10 people were shot and roughly 20 more injured Tuesday morning — no fatalities — when a gas-masked assailant detonated a gas canister and opened fire in a Brooklyn subway station. Authorities believe that assailant was Frank James, who as of this writing is still at large. We name him only because he has yet to be apprehended.

Update: He’s been apprehended.

At first, New York police named James as a “person of interest,” but as they collected evidence they elevated him to a suspect. For one thing, the assailant fled and left behind numerous belongings. The Associated Press lists them: “the gun, extended magazines, a hatchet, detonated and undetonated smoke grenades, a black garbage can, a rolling cart, gasoline and the key to a U-Haul van.”

Police evidently also found James’s credit card at the scene (which seems rather strange and convenient), and they linked it to the U-Haul van, which was rented in Philadelphia the day prior and parked a few miles away at another subway station.

In other puzzling news, ABC News reports: “There were no working cameras in the 36th Street station, according to a police official. The cameras, which are aimed at the turnstiles, didn’t transmit in real-time due to a glitch computer malfunction, a source said. The same glitch impacted cameras at the stops before and after 36th Street.” Police identified James using cellphone video from a bystander.

Regarding his motive, the mainstream media still insists it’s not clear. He was previously on the FBI’s radar, but he clearly isn’t the kind of terrorist Joe Biden and Merrick Garland claim to be most worried about.

As our Mark Alexander notes: “If not declared terrorism, the attack has the imprint of a hate crime, given the suspect’s racist social media rants — except the notion of a ‘black supremacist’ weaponized by Marxist Black Lives Matter radicals does not fit the Left’s profile of a 'hate crime.’”

His social media posts are littered with angry racist rants and threats of violence. He posted a call to “kill all the whiteys,” loved Fidel Castro and hated Donald Trump. “This nation was born in violence, it’s kept alive by violence or the threat thereof and it’s going to die a violent death,” James declared. “There’s nothing going to stop that.”

In another rant he protested: “White people and Black people… should not have amy contact with each other. Blacks and whites… Should not even be in the same hemisphere.” He added, “The white motherf**kers that I want to kill, you know, I really want to kill them because they’re white.”

On Biden’s Supreme Court nominee, Ketanji Brown Jackson, James said: “I had no idea that she would be married to a white man. Yeah our black sister supreme court justice, power to the people is married to a f**king white man.”

We haven’t seen any indication that James is Muslim, but we do note that Ramadan began April 2 and goes until May 2. We also note that Joe Biden just announced his ATF nominee and more gun regulations the day before the attack. James used the kind of extended magazines Biden wants to ban. These facts could be purely coincidental. Or not.

Also noteworthy is the fact that numerous Democrats, including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Jerry Nadler, vehemently opposed former Governor Andrew Cuomo’s plan to increase the number of Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) officers in New York City subways. They alleged it was part of the “systemic racism” they routinely rail against. Again, these facts could be purely coincidental. Or not.

If the suspect was a white supremacist, you can bet that Leftmedia outlets would be vigorously asserting connections to Republicans. When they figure out they can’t make political hay out of this one, it will disappear from the news.
