University of Rhode Island Professor Erik Loomis is defending the murder of Aaron "Jay" Danielson by left wing fascist Michael Reinoehl. he said that from a moral perspective the killing of a right wing fascist is perfectly fine.
First of all, Danielson was not a fascist and he was not engaging in any kind of bad behavior. Reinoehl stalked him and murdered him in cold blood. Loomis has been in the news before. He called for NRA executive Wayne LaPierre's "head on a stick" after the Sandy Hook massacre. Loomis is a blood thirsty loon. The University of Rhode Island should lose all government support including Pell grants and student loans for allowing this type of behavior.
Loomis also claims that the police killed Reinoehl in cold blood.
“Michael Reinoehl is the guy who killed the fascist in Portland last week. He admitted it and said he was scared the cops would kill him. Well, now the cops have killed him"
“I am extremely anti-conspiracy theory. But it’s not a conspiracy theory at this point in time to wonder if the cops simply murdered him. The police is [sic] shot through with fascists from stem to stern. They were openly working with the fascists in Portland, as they were in Kenosha which led to dead protesters."
Reinoehl did not admit to murder. He lied and said it was self defense. And at the time he was shot, Reinoehl had pulled out the gun he shot Danielson with. Loomis is a premeditated liar.
Loomis said in another comment, "Yes, sometimes violence is necessary, say to avoid greater physical harm, i.e. self-defense, or to defeat a literal army of fascists who are trying to kill people. But, ideologically, I think the idea that violence is good if it's against our political enemies is a core part of fascism, and so the ideological opposition to that idea should be its opposite - that violence as a general rule is bad, unless the specific context of that situation requires a violent response."
Loomis made headlines Tuesday for another comment he made on Twitter. In response to MSNBC host Chris Hayes tweeting, "Trump is objectively pro-Covid," Loomis tweeted "yeah, I mean, once Republicans figured out COVID was going to affect people of color and the poor disproportionately, they stopped caring about doing anything about it."
