Insane: Why This Pro-Police Couple Got Charged With A Hate Crime In California

(Tea Party 247) – The justice system in our country is two-tiered.

There’s one law for leftists…and one law for everyone else.

A couple who was filmed on a cellphone video painting over a Black Lives Matter street mural have been charged with a hate crime due to the incident.

This should give you chills.

Supporters of Black Lives Matter recorded the woman as she painted over the street art with a paint roller and her partner in the viral video.

The incident happened on the Fourth of July in Martinez, California.

“There is no oppression, there is no racism,” the man says in the video. “It’s a leftist lie.”

On Tuesday, Contra Costa County District Attorney Diana Becton announced the hate crime charges.

“Today, the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office charged Nichole Anderson (42-years old Martinez resident) and David Nelson (53-years-old Martinez resident) with three misdemeanor counts, including a hate crime, for their alleged actions on Saturday, July 4, when defendant Anderson covered up a Black Lives Matter mural with black paint,” read the statement.

Becton said that the temporary mural had been approved by the City of Martinez and, just hours before the vandalism, had been freshly applied to the sidewalk.

The couple face up to a year in county jail if found guilty.

Now, vandalism is a reasonable crime.

But while many illegal Black Lives Matter murals still stand in cities around the US that have been overwhelmed with vandalism, violence, crime, looting, and even arson and terrorism, those who painted pro-BLM murals certainly haven’t been charged with hate crimes.

Why the double standard? This is the problem with hate crimes. This couple is likely not racist, but simply disagrees with the dangerous left-wing ideology associated with the Black Lives Matter group and the movement that bears its name.

They are being charged for thought crimes as well as simple vandalism. But how was painting over this side any different than violating social distancing protocols, spray painting political windows, or say, blowing up a cop car or taking over a whole police precinct and six surrounding blocks, as happened in New York and Seattle, respectively?

Leftists are allowing the mob to run wild while punishing people who oppose the mob’s ideology to the fullest extent of the law.

This is insane.
