On Tuesday, Dennis L.A. White, an actor known for portraying Damion “D-Roc” Butler in the biopic “Notorious,” issued a tweet urging residents of the Texas town where the infamous pool party incident occurred to “find the family” of officer Eric Caesbolt, who drew his sidearm and wrestled one female black teen to the ground. The tweet has since been scrubbed, but not before Jim Hoft of the Gateway Pundit captured it for posterity:
A number of people took White to task for his over-the-top reaction, to which he responded on Twitter in the same calm and reasoned tone:
Thanks, you KKK & racist termites for showing your faces. I stand behind what I said. #EricCasebolt is wrong & should be punished.
White’s tweets, which are now protected, also included these messages:
Wish you all were this adamant about the over 400 unarmed [sic] that has [sic] been killed by cops this year already.
No 1 wants their kids manhandled like #EricCasebolt did. I just want you 2 rationalize what her parents feel. What if it was your daughter?
White was not the only person on social media calling for revenge against Casebolt. A search of Twitter found several posters who advocated murdering the officer, and one that called for firebombing his residence.
Casebolt resigned from the McKinney Police Department Tuesday, according to station WFAA. But even this measure was inadequate to satisfy some members of the community. Frances Cudjoe-Waters of Hamilton Park United Methodist Church, told the station, “I think it’s a good first step, but it’s not the end of the story.”
Nor has Caebolt been the only target of liberal vigilantism since this story broke last weekend. Black radio host Benét Embry, who witnessed the incident and claims the black teens started the fracas, has received death threats. Activists, moreover, have demands that he be fired.
In February 2011, we first said that liberalism, at its core, is an ideology of rage and hate. Unfortunately, liberals like White prove that assertion correct on just about any given day.
*UPDATE* White reached out to this reporter at Examiner Wednesday morning, demanding this story be pulled or edited to his liking. In his email, he claimed that, “I never said that we should be violent towards anyone kids.” In another email, he claimed that he “never suggested” anyone visit violence on Casebolt’s children and threatened legal action. We refused his request and said we would be happy to publish any apology he might wish to extend to Casebolt’s family or to white people he smeared as “racist termites.”
