A self-described “militant” supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement has a unique take on the Waukesha Christmas parade tragedy that resulted in 5 deaths and 40 people injured.
According to Vaun Mayes, it’s “possible” that the slaughter signaled the start of a “revolution” as the result of the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict.
“I don’t know. Now we’ll have to wait and see because they do have somebody in custody. We may have to wait and see what they say about why this happened,” Mayes remarked during a Facebook Live video on Monday. “But it sounds possible that the revolution has started in Wisconsin. It started with this Christmas parade.”
He went on to add that he has no idea what the motivation could have been for running down a large number of people trying to enjoy holiday festivities but that didn’t stop him from speculating wildly.
“I said I wasn’t going to speak on no rumors. Y’all are repeating some of the stuff that, you know, that has come up. And I can tell you that the initial person who reached out to me said that they believe that this has to do with the verdict, and so I made an assumption of which side it would be from, but I don’t know.”

The official Black Lives Matter organization has not responded to the theory, but Mayes is not backing down.
On his “activist” Twitter account, he issued a warning to “white supremacists” and their “cheerleaders.”
** Language warning**
Darrell Brooks Jr. was arrested and charged with five counts of first-degree intentional homicide for his alleged role in the attack. Police indicated that Brooks was allegedly fleeing from another crime at the time that the attack occurred.
Social media reaction to the story was mixed:
I would love to see what a society of people who think this way would look like.

It is highly possible that Russian intelligence agencies finance and support these “movements” to destabilize America. They know how these “5th columns” work really well.

Nice try dude. It was already released the guy was running from another incident. Quit trying to create more fear and give other people to pull more deadly incidents. If it does its on this guys head.

Nothing like a nice civil war to bring a country together
