When you look at ANTIFA and BLM it is hard to distinguish the tactics they use from the way ISIS operates in the Middle East. Nothing reflects that more than the recent actions taken in Durham, North Carolina, by the homegrown terrorist groups who tore down a Confederate statue in broad daylight. It was a terrible event that should never have happened, but what was even more shocking is how law enforcement allowed the participants to get away with their actions and walk away without handcuffs around their wrists.
Fortunately, there was enough public outcry that many of the individuals involved in the act were eventually arrested. This type of behavior is no different than how ISIS operates while destroying relics that their twisted religion doesn’t align with. Judge Jim Hinkle of North Carolina shared the same sentiment and wrote on Facebook Tuesday: “The nut cases tearing down monuments are equivalent to ISIS destroying history.”
The post was written on the same day the protesters tore down the Confederate monument in Durham, NC.

On Saturday, while the Charlottesville protest was occurring, Judge Hinkle wrote that the leftist protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, were “snowflakes” with “no concept of history,” as they countered an alt-right rally. The rally was originally intended to protest the relocation of General Robert E. Lee’s statue.
According to Milo:
“In Charlottesville, everyone is upset over Robert E. Lee statue,” Hinkle’s post stated. “It looks like all of the snowflakes have no concept of history. It is what it is. Get over it and move on. Leave history alone – those who ignore history are deemed (sic) to repeat the mistake of the past.”
The Judge posted his message shortly before James Fields plowed his Dodge Challenger into a group of ANTIFA protesters resulting in the death of one woman.
Gwinnett County Chief Magistrate Judge Kristina Hammer Blum told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) that she was not made aware of Hinkle’s Facebook posts until the newspaper contacted her for comment.
“After reviewing the Facebook posts you brought to my attention this morning, I have suspended Judge Hinkle effective immediately while I consider the appropriate final action,” she said in an email to the AJC.
“As the Chief Magistrate Judge, I have made it clear to all of our Judges that the Judicial Canons, as well as our internal policies, require Judges to conduct themselves in a manner that promotes public confidence in the integrity, impartiality, and fairness of the judiciary. I consider any violation of those principles and policies to be a matter of utmost concern, and will certainly take any action necessary to enforce compliance and to maintain the integrity of this Court.”
According to AJC, Hinkle did not “see anything controversial,” with his Facebook posts.
“But you know, with the way things are going in the world today, I guess everything’s controversial,” he added.
Hinkle tendered his resignation on Wednesday, just one day after his suspension.
“For 14 years, Judge Hinkle has dutifully served this court,” Blum said in a statement which was released through a Gwinnett County spokesman. “He is a lifelong public servant and former Marine. However, he has acknowledged that his statements on social media have disrupted the mission of this Court, which is to provide justice for all.”
“My decision to accept Judge Hinkle’s resignation is not a comment on his personal opinions; he is entitled to those,” Blum’s statement continued. “While, thankfully, our Constitution protects the right of all citizens to express their opinions, Judges are held to a more stringent standard by the Judicial Canons.”
The Canons Blum is referring to say, in part, that judges should “act at all times in a manner that promotes public confidence in the independence, integrity, and impartiality of the judiciary.”
Like most Americans, Judge Hinkle is fed up with the alt-left and the homegrown terrorists actions. Groups like ANTIFA and BLM have done nothing but divide our country further and their goal is to eliminate whites as the majority.
Hinkle is absolutely right in his words, the “snowflake” protesters had no right disrupting a protest that was completely legal. We may not agree with groups like the KKK but this is America and they do have rights just like the rest of us. We cannot simply shut everyone up that we don’t agree with.
