And Now Jim Hoft Is Dishonestly Smearing Capt. Ron Johnson
Yes, folks, as much as it pains me to do it, I need to write another post about the Dumbest Man on the Internet tonight, because he’s spreading evil racist lies again, about something that’s easily checked.
Jim Hoft’s latest ugly race-baiting post: Celebrated #Ferguson Capt. Ron Johnson Pulls Gun on Unarmed White Kids on Bikes | the Gateway Pundit.
Last week Attorney General Eric Holder met with Missouri Highway Patrol Captain Ron Johnson in Ferguson.

Now there’s this photo of Captain Johnson pulling a gun on white kids…
This photo was from the “Ride of the Century” stunt bikers event in 2013. There was No reason for a gun to be drawn. The kids were doing bike stunts and the highway was clearly already shut down at this point.

This is what Ron is doing around those that he deems as thugs! Ron fears bikers??
Yes, there was definitely a reason for Capt. Ron Johnson to draw his gun, and these were definitely not harmless “unarmed white kids.”
Here’s some information about the “Ride of the Century” that Jim Hoft isn’t telling you in his post about “unarmed white kids:” Ride of the Century Fatalities, Arrests: Michael Evans Clips Cop Car, Crashes, Police Say | Riverfront Times.
After days of increasing tensions between police and the Ride of the Century participants, two riders died in crashes over the weekend. Many others were arrested and cited for a range of violations.
Metro police yesterday identified the victim in one of the fatal crashes as Michael Evans, a 32-year-old Harrisburg, Illinois resident. According to cops, he was speeding with a group of motorcyclists at around 6:05 p.m. on Saturday near an unmarked police vehicle on duty by Elizabeth and January avenues in the Hill neighborhood in south city. The group of riders were allegedly traveling southbound — in the northbound lane.
Evans’ motorcycle clipped the unmarked cop car while attempting to pass on the right, according to police.
That’s why Capt. Ron Johnson pulled his gun on these people. This was a lawless, violent, anarchistic event, not simply some harmless “white kids” doing bike stunts, and it had been happening for years, getting worse and worse. Finally, after people started dying in these “bike stunts,” the police cracked down and put a stop to it.
And Jim Hoft lives in St. Louis, so he certainly knows the history of the “Ride of the Century.” This is nothing but absolutely blatant racist incitement.
