So a 'social activist' wants to do good, finds out

some of the people around him want to destroy things and hurt people, and acts to stop them. Which you'd think would generally be considered a good thing, right?
"Everyone that knew Brandon has gone through a whole range of emotions. Clearly, he's betrayed the trust of the community, and all the communities he's worked with," said Lisa Fithian, a social-justice activist who worked with Darby in Austin.

So according to a rather large subset of 'social-justice activists', if you help the cops prevent someone from firebombing people, you're 'betraying the trust'.

Allow me to say that Ms. FilthyFithian is just one more miserable little socialist who thinks her cause is so holy that they shouldn't be hampered in their means, including possible murder:
"What if there's a cop sleeping in the car?" Darby asked McKay, according to an affidavit by Christopher Langert, a special agent in the FBI's Minneapolis office. "He'll wake up," McKay allegedly replied.

McKay also told Darby, "It's worth it if an officer gets burned or maimed," the affidavit said
Just wonderful, the people who've helped push Obama into the White House, aren't they?

Here's something very important:
Darby said he saw firsthand what happens when government fails to protect its citizens. "When I showed up in New Orleans, I was very angry at my government," he said.

But he said that while working there, he concluded that some activists seemed more intent on promoting radical agendas than helping people.
(no duh, as it used to be said)

As for why he got involved with the FBI, Darby said it was because he discovered that people he knew were planning violence.

"Somebody had asked me to do something that would've resulted in hurting people, and I said no," he said. "So they started asking other people. At that point, that's when I went forward and contacted somebody in law enforcement."

I'll tell you something: I am very damn mad at my government, and some law enforcement is fully included in that. Which does not change the fact that if I heard someone planning to bomb an office or a police car, something of that sort, I'd be dropping a dime. It'd be the right thing to do. But doing that apparently makes you a traitor to the 'social justice' dirtbags*.

Which is just one more reason to dislike them.

*Yeah, some of them actually want to help people instead of blowing things up; unfortunately, I have yet to hear someone define 'social justice' without it including using the power of government to loot people and other nanny-state bullshit.
