When reports emerged Saturday morning that police were chasing after a group of “heavily armed” anti-government extremists in Massachusetts, leftists automatically assumed that the extremists were white supremacist men.

When it was later learned that the extremists had eventually surrendered peacefully after an hours-long standoff, leftists automatically assumed that the extremists had survived the ordeal only because they were white supremacist men.

Look:

Were they right? First, take a look at the backstory:

“The standoff began around 2 a.m. when police noticed two cars pulled over on I-95 with hazard lights on after they had apparently run out of fuel, authorities said at a Saturday press briefing,” the Associated Press reported.

“At least some of the suspects were clad in military-style gear with long guns and pistols, Mass State Police Col. Christopher Mason said. He added that they were headed to Maine from Rhode Island for ‘training.'”

“You can imagine 11 armed individuals standing with long guns slung on an interstate highway at 2 in the morning certainly raises concerns and is not consistent with the firearms laws that we have in Massachusetts,” Mason noted.

The extremists tried fleeing, the police surrounded them, a standoff ensued and the extremists eventually surrendered. Before surrendering, however, one of the extremists live-streamed his thoughts from the scene.

Watch, and see if you notice anything odd:

(The original videos can be seen on the group’s Facebook page.)

The suspects are black. In fact, they’re members of a black extremist group, the “Rise of the Moors,” that “espouses a conspiracy-based, anti-government agenda that combines sovereign-citizen beliefs with those of the Moorish Science Temple,” according to the Boston Herald.

“The group’s sovereign-citizen beliefs mean that ‘what you and I would think of as legitimate government is an illegitimate government that holds no authority over them whatsoever,'” the Herald reported, quoting from an alleged extremist expert.

Meanwhile, the group’s Moorish beliefs are essentially black supremacist in nature, in that they state “that African Americans, i.e. Moors, have certain special privileges and status,” according to the expert cited by the Herald.

And so far from being white supremacist men, the extremists were black supremacist men. Whoops.

In fairness to the leftists who assumed otherwise, many in the media had gone out of their way to not identify the men’s race.

This, of course, is how it always goes.

If the suspects are white, the story is given intense scrutiny, but if the suspects are black, Muslim, leftist, then this happens every single time:
