The Facebook account appears to belong to Darrell Brooks, the suspect behind the… waukesha Attack on Christmas Parade, contains memes and messages that om violence against white people, and also suggested that “Hitler was right” for killing Jews during the Holocaust.

“LEARNED AND LEARNED BEHAVIOR!! so if we start with bakk knokkin white people TF out ion want to hear it… the old white ppl 2, KNOKK DEM TF OUT!! PERIOD..,” Brooks wrote on Facebook on June 9, 2020 accompanied by the middle finger emoji, the Daily Mail reported.

The account has since been deleted. He used the name “MathBoi Fly”, an alias Brooks used as the stage name for his amateur rap career.

He also shared a meme titled “Hitler Knew Who The Real Jews Were!” according to the Daily Mail.

The report claimed that Adolf had warned Hitler that his genocide was motivated in part because he knew that “the Negroes … are the real Hebrews,” who seemed to promote the views of the black Hebrew Israelites. The report added that America had “moved false white Jews to a state of Israel,” and that World War III would unfold when people “learned that Hitler was right” and “was doing the world a favor by killing Jews.”

Brooks commented on the meme, “real game rite here,” which was accompanied by the hashtag “#research.” Such claims about Hitler are… rather debunked.

On June 9, 2020, he shared an ESPN article about NBA player Kyle Kuzma explaining “his belief in what white privilege is.” Brooks commented on the piece, “Interesting.”

That same month, he shared a report about a white police officer who was “violent against peaceful protesters.”

Another post showed support for Black Lives Matter, accompanied by the middle finger emoji and a police officer emoji, according to screenshots from the account posted by the Daily Mail.

A more recent post also showed that the Facebook account had an influence on last Friday’s Kyle Rittenhouse verdict, saying he was “not surprised”.

Rittenhouse has been acquitted after a high-profile trial over the fatal shooting of two men and the wounding of another during riots in Kenosha last summer. The riots came in response to a white police officer who shot a black man, Jacob Blake, leaving him partially paralyzed.

Waukesha Police did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment as they investigate the reports. Facebook also did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment on the account and whether the company is cooperating with authorities during the investigation.

Fox News also investigated a 2012 retweet from the Twitter account called “MathBoi Fly” that expressed shock and called for prayers for the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

“18 kids, 18 dreams, 9 adults, 27 families, 27 lost personalities and 1 sick man who decided to kill children #pray #prayfornewtown,” read the original tweet, which was retweeted by what appears to be Brooks’ account.

His amateur rap career also included lyrics saying he was a “terrorist” and a “murderer in the city.” The sun reported.

Police have not yet released a motive for Sunday night’s attack, but the charges against Brooks show witnesses describing the attack as an attack with “intent.” A detective spoke to a witness who said the SUV that hit the parade participants zigzagged through the crowd, describing that he felt it was “a direct intent to hit as many parade participants as possible.”

WAUKESHA CHRISTMAS PARADE VICTIMS ATTACK: FORMER TEACHER, GRANDMOTHERS ALSO UNDER 5 GODS

Brooks is charged with five counts of first-degree intentional manslaughter following the assault. The five current charges are related to the deaths of Virginia Sorenson, 79, LeAnna Owen, 71, Tamara Durand, 52, Jane Kulich, 52, and Wilhelm Hospel, 81.

A sixth charge is expected following the death of an 8-year-old boy on Tuesday. All victims are white.

Brooks, 39, also has an extensive criminal record dating back to 1999, and was released on bail in Wisconsin twice this year, despite having an active sex offense in Nevada.

A cousin of Brooks, Anaji Brooks, also filed a restraining order against him in September, saying his uncle shot him during an argument over an old cell phone in July 2020.

“I came to the conclusion that this man was not related to me,” Anaji Brooks wrote in his plea for the restraining order, the Daily Mail reported. “Family shouldn’t hurt family like he did.”

Brooks first appeared in court on Tuesday, where he sobbed audibly as district attorney Susan Opper announced that a sixth victim of the attack had died.

He is being held on $5 million bail in a Wisconsin prison.

The Wheel of Time book up

The Wheel of Time book up

As we expected, the first The wheel of time book has risen on Amazon’s best-selling list. Here’s a full look at the list from November 28 to December 4.

When the Amazon series The wheel of time premiered, we expected the books to make it onto Amazon’s best-selling list. The first book came in before the series premiered, but it was on the low end. Now that the series is in full swing, Robert Jordan’s first book tops the list.

The eye of the world by Robert Jordan took three places this week to get into the Top 3. He’s not quite at the top of the list, but he is in second place.

Outlander Book 9 up, Mercy down

There was a lot of movement on the Amazon bestselling book list. One of the most notable movers is Go tell the bees I’m gone by Diana Gabaldon. Unsurprisingly, the book moved up six places to take over the top spot on the list. The book also took first place on the list of most read books of the week.

The whole Top 3 has actually changed. The Throne of glass collection by Sarah J. Maas finished in third place. All eight books put together make an excellent Christmas present, so it’s no surprise it’s so high on the list now.

It did mean Dune by Frank Herbert was knocked out of the Top 3 for the first time in ages. It lost three places and dropped to fourth place.

However, that was not the biggest loss. The dark hours by Michael Connelly and Apples never fall of Liane Moriarty lost nine places each. However, Grace by David Baldacci lost the most places. It dropped to 19th place after losing 17 spots.

JetBlue-Backed Weather Startup Tomorrow.io Goes Public Through SPAC Deal

Skift Take

Silicon Valley sometimes mocks travel companies for not being as agile as tech startups. So it’s refreshing to learn that JetBlue Airways has been a valuable mentor to Tomorrow.io, a tech startup now valued at over $700 million.

Sean O’Neill

tomorrow.io, a weather information company, said Tuesday it plans to go public through a merger with Pine Technology, a blank check company. The target for the pro forma enterprise value of the combined company would be approximately $729 million.

Tomorrow.io provides real-time weather forecasts relevant to business operations. The 120 corporate customers include AeroMexico, Azul, Delta and United, plus several other non-travel companies.

While not a travel startup, Tomorrow.io stands out because it is backed by JetBlue Technology Enterprises, the investment arm of the American airline JetBlue Airways.

JetBlue Technology Ventures joined others, including Koch Strategic Platforms, National Grid Partners and SoftBank Group’s SB Energy, by participating in a $75 million private investment in public equity (PIPE) to support the transaction.

In 2017, JetBlue became the startup’s first commercial customer for its services.

“Since that time, [the startup] has consistently delivered valuable results for JetBlue by minimizing operational disruption at the airport,” said Amy Burr, president of JetBlue Technology Ventures.

The startup’s investor pitch deck, embedded below, includes an aviation-related example. An unnamed airline suffered a snow storm in April 2019 that required it to defrost planes but was unable to do so as winds hit more than 50 miles per hour. The carrier used Tomorrow.io’s micro-forecasts to find periods when winds decreased, allowing for de-icing. By acting on the forecasts, the airline was able to avoid delays and save about $2 million.

The proposed transaction — part of a series of travel-related SPAC deals — is expected to close in the first half of 2020, at which point Tomorrow.io will then await regulatory approval to trade on the Nasdaq exchange in New York under the TMW symbol.

This is the pitch deck for investors:

In addition, the partnership will enable Aramark to operate certain Starr Restaurants concepts and brands through an exclusive licensing agreement.

This arrangement is expected to help Starr Restaurants increase exposure through Aramark’s customer network, which includes business dining, sports and entertainment and higher education.

“The company’s impressive and consistent growth and its deep commitment to providing quality hospitality experiences make it the perfect foodservice partner for Starr Restaurants.”
