Gee...I wonder if the driver was a trumper?

If they're white, they just have to say they thought they were being intimidated and threatened by protesters and case dismissed.

Why did they schedule a parade in front of the farmer's market?!?!?

Intentional?  Accidental?  KOB and KOAT aren't giving enough details yet to know.

If we find out he was shouting for the Navajo to go back to their own country, we will have our answer.

If the last couple of people driving through a parade are any indication, nope.  But at least you got to make things political before any details were released.

Another video captured by witness Keisha Joe shows what appears to be the SUV that was driven through the parade.

SUV drivers universally suck at driving. I've never understood this. Do you have to give up part of your brain to by one? But maybe it was just a really, really bad driver.

Based upon my experience of New Mexican drivers, it could be possible that the person driving the SUV has never seen a traffic light or may not understand what the signs and markings on the roads mean.

Both passengers according to KOB.  So probably not accidental.

No one uses cars to barricade these things off from traffic there?  I'm certain they still do it for block parties here.

That's a pickup truck; the article says it was an SUV, so maybe a Cherokee.

Two cops were hit, so you must consider at least their service weapons and the throw-aways they plant on any minorities they have to shoot may have been involved.

No word on their status at this time, but we have reporters on-scene at the gun hospital and are expecting updates.  Stay tuned to KFRK for the latest news....

A quick social media search for video footage appears to show that the driver was not white.  But let's speculate anyways about the white supremacist who attacked the Navajo Nation.

I agree that specific political speculations here are not worth much, but do you honestly think white supremacists have to look 'white,' whatever that means?

Extermination of the Native Americans is indeed part of the white nationalist agenda.  It's not at the top of their list, but it's definitely still on there.

Well, then, that's what it will prove to be.
Until then, people are free to speculate.
I don't have any particular hunches, but I'm not going to tell someone who does to shut up.

Given the background of one of the Oathkeepers or whatever their name is and the general hypocrisy of those groups, absolutely not.
 
2022-08-05 10:54:39 AM  
Other sources suggest three people have been detained, and the driver sped up during the event. I guess we'll know more soon.

On the rez, or Gallup, it was a drunk driver until otherwise indicated.  Chances of a racial attack are very low. The Navajo are great neighbors, in general.

I think it's because you can get the illusion of safety by how 'removed' you are from traffic, assuming you are driving somewhere where people mostly have smaller vehicles than you.  Like, you're taller and wider and honestly people just have to watch out for you rather than the other way around.  You also don't have to care as much about bumps in the road and stuff like that.  A crack or pothole I have to slow down for in my small sedan, in an SUV and can just blast right over (assuming I don't care about the wear on the tires) without noticing in the cabin.

So, basically, at least some people who get the monster SUVs do so because they want to be insulated from the road and massively over-armored for a crash.  When you don't really worry about your own safety from normal traffic, you don't drive defensively.  I doubt that's what happened here, but that is the kind of driving I see in my area...basically soccer moms who drive like the south park version of Caitlyn Jenner

I'm going to hope that it was like one incident that was by the kids recently... the guy driving the truck had a medical issue. Took them a bit to figure out because he was conscious but not making sense. Turns out he had a stroke while driving.

Unfortunately this is probably just another fascist...

Dude. We have a country full of neo nazis that celebrate driving over crowds of minorities.
Simple pattern recognition is not 'race baiting'. Its a recognition of probability.
That was a valid observation no matter what turns out to have caused this

Except there are more instances of minorities driving through parades.  So reality doesn't match what race baiters want to speculate about.

No, we do not have a country "full of neo-nazis."  If you really believe that you need mental help, or help understanding what the word full means.  They certainly exist but on those occasions when you leave mom's basement to get more Redbull and Twinkies every 3rd person you pass isn't a neo-Nazi.
