Waukesha Driver Has History Of Derogatory and Inflammatory Comments

The driver of the Waukesha massacre, Darrell Brooks, that has taken the lives of six people and injured dozens recently had some of his social media posts discovered. While his accounts have now been deleted, the Daily Mail did publish them before they were taken down. 

Among the posts, Brooks posted about bringing violence against white people. Brooks wrote on his Facebook page, “ LEARNED ND TAUGHT BEHAVIOR!! so when we start bakk knokkin white people TF out ion wanna hear it…the old white ppl 2, KNOKK DEM TF OUT!! PERIOD..,” The post was made back on June 9, 2020 and also contained a middle finger emoji. Brooks had also made posts about the Holocaust and said that “Hitler was right”. Brooks shared a meme that said “Hitler knew who the real Jews were!” The meme also contained claims that Hitler warned his genocide was about how Hitler knew, “ the negros … are the true hebrews”. A similar claim is made by the radical group the Black Hebrew Israelites, a group that believes that African Americans are the true descendants of the ancient Israelites. Brooks also went under the alias MathBoiFly for his amateur rap career. He described himself as a “terrorist” and killer in song lyrics. 

Recent posts that Brooks made include a statement about the Kyle Rittenhouse case. Brooks said in a post that he “ wasn’t surprised 1 bit” in regards to the verdict. Some have speculated that Brooks was angry about the verdict and committed this atrocity out of anger, but that is still unclear as the investigation is still ongoing. A detective on the case said they talked to a witness who said Brooks drove in a zigzag with “ a direct intent to hit as many parade participants.”
