Louisville residents were rocked earlier this week by the attempted assassination of a Democrat mayoral candidate. The alleged would-be assassin, Quintez Brown, is an avid gun control advocate and Black Lives Matter activist. He was honored by President Obama three years ago for his “social justice” activism, too. Two days after police say he nearly succeeded in murdering Craig Greenberg, the local Black Lives Matter chapter put up the $100,000 needed to spring him from jail.
Brown has been a high profile activist in Louisville. So much so that he was a guest of honor of former President Obama in 2019, recognizing him as a “rising face.”

Brown has also advocated aggressively for keeping blacks on the gun control plantation. But in fairness, he wanted to keep everyone there, not just minorities. And just like many hypocrites in Hollywood, while he advocated for taking guns away from the little people, he apparently had a 9mm pistol of his own.
The UK’s Daily Mail has the report . . .
A BLM activist accused of trying to assassinate a Jewish mayoral candidate has been pictured with Barack Obama, as his alleged victim slammed the ‘broken criminal justice system’ for freeing the suspected shooter on bail.
Quintez Brown, 21, was one of 22 people chosen to meet the former President of the United States as part of Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper Alliance, which is aimed at closing achievement gaps facing young boys and men of color.
Brown, of Louisville in Kentucky, was pictured smiling behind the president, and even named as a future star by the Obama Foundation website, but now finds himself accused of the attempted murder of Craig Greenberg. And his case has attracted further outrage after it emerged a local Black Lives Matter chapter had put up his $100,000 bail.
On Monday, he allegedly showed up at Democratic mayoral candidate Greenberg’s Louisville Kentucky campaign HQ, where he is said to have opened fire.
The Daily Mail reports that Brown put up a lot of bigoted posts on social media. His attorney has already tried to paint the alleged shooter as the true victim here, laying the preliminary groundwork for an insanity defense . . .
Brown’s attorney Rob Eggert has scolded those who suggested it was an anti-Semitic attack. Eggert said: ‘This is not a hate crime. It is a mental health case.’ Cops have yet to comment further on a motive.
Meanwhile, the intended victim — who had four rounds fired at him — remains shocked that the guy who nearly killed him would walk free two days later.
Greenberg added: ‘Our criminal justice system is clearly broken. It is nearly impossible to believe that someone can attempt murder on Monday and walk out of jail on Wednesday’
Brown was sprung courtesy of the local office of a radical social justice organization.
On Wednesday, BLM Louisville, together with the BLM-run Louisville Community Bail Fund, posted Brown’s $100,000 cash bond.

Is there a better argument against “bail reform” and revolving door justice than the case of Quintez Brown?
The local newspaper regularly ran rambling, hate-filled pieces written by Brown, who was also running for a seat on the Louisville city council. In a screed from July 2, 2019 in the Louisville Courier Journal . . .
Your life has no meaning to the irresponsible politicians in Frankfort who time and time again choose the National Rifle Association over your life.
Their support for Senate Bill 150, which allows Kentuckians to carry concealed weapons without a permit, is yet another warning: They’ve put a price tag on your life and decided that the blood money they receive from the NRA is more valuable.
Did you catch that? In Brown’s view, taking away the government’s ability to discriminate against black Americans who wish carry a gun outside the home in self-defense is evidence that Kentucky Republicans and the NRA hate minorities.
But Brown wasn’t finished . . .
If enslaved blacks were considered people in 1789, this is how the Second Amendment probably would have read: “A well regulated white Militia being necessary to the security of a free white State, the rights of white men to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”
Some in the media had trouble dealing with the politics of the incident and tried to blame Brown’s alleged murder attempt on…the far right. As an editorial originally published by the Las Vega Sun put it . . .
The alleged shooter, a 21-year-old political activist, was arrested near the scene and later charged with attempted murder along with four counts of wanton endangerment.
While there’s been no indication yet that the activist had ties to any right-wing organizations, the shooting comes amid a rise in threats against politicians fueled by increasingly violent rhetoric coming from extremist Republicans.
Brown’s alleged assassination attempt was apparently just too difficult to wedge into the prevailing victimhood narrative for the editors of the Las Vegas Sun to reconcile without attempting to deflect blame onto those who had literally nothing to do with the shooting.

The good news is Brown’s campaign for the Louisville city council is now probably dead. The bad news is there are plenty of other radicals out ready to take his place, people more than happy to advocate for more gun control for the little people.
