Black Lives Matter activists are curiously silent after black Trump supporter Bernell Trammell was murdered in Milwaukee hours after he reportedly gave an interview explaining why he supports President Trump.
Police are investigating the possibility of a political motive for Trammell’s tragic killing, NewsTalk1130 reported.
According to the Daily Callout: “Trammell, 60, was gunned down on July 23 near the very spot where he gave a video interview a few hours before explaining why he supported Trump. The motive is not clear, including whether the slaying was tied into Trammell’s political beliefs or Trump support.”
Trammell was a Rastafarian street preacher who advocated for President Trump’s reelection both in front of Milwaukee’s City Hall and in his black-majority neighborhood.
Police say Trammell was shot to death at around 12:30 p.m. in front of his business, Expression Publications.
Trammell’s storefront is plastered with “Trump 2020” signs.
Reggie Moore, the director of the Milwaukee Office of Violence Prevention, told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel that he had “intervened in a dispute between Trammell and a young man” that was “related to a Trump sign that Trammell was carrying.”
Trammell was known in his neighborhood for his pro-Trump advocacy and his religious preaching.
Neighbors fondly remembered Bernell as a friendly, peace-loving man. “The guy was just full of love,” local resident Dick Nelson told Fox 6.
Adebisi Agoro said whether you agreed with Trammell’s political views or not, people respected him because he had conviction — unlike countless political phonies who chant hollow mantras but don’t understand what they’re advocating.
“He was just a community figure,” Agoro said. “I respected him because he had a position. He’s got his opinion on why he feels that way, and I’m not going to knock him.”
Senator Ron Johnson tweeted: “Bernell Trammell was known to many in Milwaukee. My condolences to his family and friends.”
Naturally, the Black Lives Matter movement said nothing about this black life that was lost to street violence.
Presumably, because Trammell wasn’t murdered by a white cop.
Many folks on social media slammed Black Lives Matter agitators for ignoring Trammell’s murder.
One person tweeted: “Where is Black Lives Matter outrage at the death of Bernell Trammell?”
