A University of Rhode Island history professor, writing about the alleged killing of a Trump supporter by Antifa supporter Michael Reinoehl, wrote, “Reinoehl killed a fascist. I see nothing wrong with it, at least from a moral perspective.”
Reinoehl allegedly gunned down Aaron “Jay” Danielson, a member of a group called “Patriot Prayer” that showed up to counter-protest at a Black Lives Matter demonstration. Reinoehl was later killed in a confrontation with U.S. Marshals who were trying to arrest him for second-degree murder.
The Rhode Island University professor, Erik Loomis, initiated the conversation wherein he made the incendiary comment with a blog post in which he wrote:
Michael Reinoehl is the guy who killed the fascist in Portland last week. He admitted it and said he was scared the cops would kill him Well, now the cops have killed him. I am extremely anti-conspiracy theory. But it’s not a conspiracy theory at this point in time to wonder if the cops simply murdered him. The police is shot through with fascists from stem to stern. They were openly working with the fascists in Portland, as they were in Kenosha which led to dead protestors.
Responding officers only shot and killed Reinoehl after he engaged them in a life-or-death gun battle.
