The man who allegedly tried to assassinate the candidate for Louisville mayor, Craig Greenberg, is a radical leftist, member of BLM, and a Black nationalist. Quintez Brown a self-proclaimed racial justice activist working for “the total liberation and unification of Africa under scientific socialism,” has been charged with the shooting in Greenberg’s office.
Now that the victim is a Democrat will the same rules apply that we have seen in the past? Will Brown be let out of jail without posting a bond or bail like Garrett James Smith, the Pinellas, Florida man caught with a bomb in his backpack? Or, will he get the prosecutors fighting for a lighter sentence like they did for Montez Terriel Lee, who killed a man when he set fire to the business he was staying in because he was “protesting”? After all, Brown did not kill anyone.
Earlier on Tuesday, The Daily Wire reported:
“Quintez Brown, 21, was charged with attempted murder and four counts of wanton endangerment after Greenberg was shot at in his campaign headquarters Monday morning in Butchertown, LMPD spokeswoman Elizabeth Ruoff said late Monday.”
The Left-wing activist was well-known in the Louisville community and also an MLK Scholar at University of Louisville. He is the founder of From Fields to Arena, a group committed to providing political education and violence prevention training. Well, that seems to be a bit ironic, doesn’t it?
As flagged by The Daily Beast:
Brown’s more recent social media posts, particularly the accounts associated with his campaign for a seat in the Louisville Metro Council, show an increasing interest in Black nationalist and pan-Africanist leaders. He frequently posted photos and quotes of the Black Panthers, Stokely Carmichael, George Jackson, and late Ghanaian President Kwame Nkrumah.
He even appeared to urge followers last week to join the Lion of Judah Armed Forces, a gun-toting group whose leadership has voiced ideas similar to those of the Black Hebrew Israelite movement. The latter anti-Semitic ideology holds that Black Americans, not Jewish people, are the true descendants of the Biblical Hebrews. Adherents of the BHI movement were charged with murdering four Jewish people at a kosher supermarket in Jersey City in 2019.
A local spokesman for the Lion of Judah Armed Forces told The Daily Beast he first met with Brown last Thursday, though he said the accused never became a member of the group. He affirmed the organization’s Black Hebrew Israelite beliefs, but maintained they did not endorse the attack or have any foreknowledge of Brown’s plans.
“We are terribly heartbroken over what appears to have been a humongous lapse in judgment,” the spokesperson said. “The Lion of Judah Armed Forces in no way advocates anything of this nature.”
