VIDEO: Cop-Hating Anarchist in Michigan Calls Trump a ‘Tyrant’

Say hello to Brandon Caserta, one of the “right-wing extremists” charged with a conspiracy to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer:

A new video of one of the 13 men arrested and charged in an alleged kidnapping plot against Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer shows the suspect is a Trump-hating anarchist despite media claims the plot was hatched by pro-Trump white supremacists.
“You know Trump is not your friend, dude,” said Brandon Caserta, with a large anarchist flag hanging on his wall behind him. “And it amazes me that people actually, like, believe that. When he’s shown over and over and over again that he’s a tyrant. Every single person that works for government is your enemy, dude.”
In another video from Caserta, the anarchist asserted, “[police] are oppressing you for a paycheck.” “If you’re still supporting law enforcement… you are supporting the people who are enforcing slavery on everyone else.”
Documentary producer Robby Starbuck, who discovered Caserta’s videos, blasted the integrity of the corporate media, writing on Twitter: “Why did it take me to pull all these videos to give people access to the truth about the ideology these guys have? It says a lot about the state of journalism that a director/producer had to dig these clips up because we all know we can’t trust mainstream news to do their job.”

Note well the gauged earlobes, the multiple crude tattoos, the heavy metal T-shirts and general “edgy” hipster/punk vibe with this guy.

His Instagram handle was @xenoccult and he probably identifies as Pagan. Bet you money he has, or once had, a reptile collection — boa constrictor and/or iguana — and likes to smoke weed. His hobbies, other than anarchism and guns, include comic books and sci-fi/fantasy movies.

What I’m saying is, Brandon Caserta is a definite type.

If you know many working-class white Millenials, you are familiar with the Brandon Caserta type, the autodidact Philosopher King, who got his education from paperback books, YouTube and Reddit. They’re a dime a dozen, this type, but few of them ever escalate to violence.

Notice that nobody in the mainstream Right is defending these guys. There is no right-wing equivalent of BLM to organize hashtag campaigns or street protests when white criminals get busted. Republicans aren’t toppling statues or torching police cars over Brandon Caserta’s arrest.

The Left will turn violent terrorists like Angela Davis into cult heroes, but the Right is about law and order, peace and prosperity.
