White supremacist Trump fan stabs interracial couple, police in Olympia WA say

Actual thing that exists
Actual thing that exists

Donald Trump continues to be an inspiration to the worst people in the world. In Olympia, Washington last week, he evidently inspired one man to attack an interracial couple with a knife.

Here’s Salon’s account of the attack:

Daniel Rowe stabbed a black man in Olympia, the capital of Washington state, outside of a bar at around 8:30pm [Tuesday night] after seeing the black man kiss a white woman. … Rowe … yelled a racial slur and lunged with his knife, police say. The blade grazed the woman and went into the man’s hip, according to a news release from Olympia police.

After being arrested he admitted to stabbing the couple and told police that he was a white supremacist, according to a police department spokesman.

According to court documents cited by Salon, Rowe “took a blood oath to fight on the street, and [said] if he was let go tonight, he planned on heading down to the next Donald Trump rally and stomping out more of the Black Lives Matter group.”

Meanwhile, as Salon goes on to note, the case of a Florida teenager who was caught literally eating the face off of one of the two people he had just killed for no clear reason has gotten even weirder. Apparently the murderer-turned-cannibal was wearing a Trump “Make America Great Again” hat when he committed his crimes.

Given the bizarre nature of the crime, it seems rather unlikely that the young murderer was inspired by Trump, but it is creepy as hell.

Yup, saw it :p

I have psychic powers (and a propensity to check RSS feeds at the most opportune times).

I read recently that indigenous Australians have a different conception of the seasons here that fits much better than the imported European model. Sounds eminently reasonable.

Seems logical, seeing as they established their model given the conditions they had, as opposed to the settlers who came with a preconceived model. I kinda see a parallel between this and society in general but I absolutely do not know how to word that clearly ’cause I no can engrish. Something like how the privileged see the world through their own lens, and it turns out to be a really flawed view when it comes to the underprivileged’s experience – which is rarely taken into account.

Do you not get snow, either?

Weeeell… we do get snow… or we used to, at any rate. I haven’t seen any in years, I think the last time was in 2009. I was still in high school that year, next town from where I lived, and I ended up stuck there because a huge blizzard suddenly showed up and coated everything in white. I couldn’t see 5 meters ahead of me and I had snow up to my knees after only one or two hours. . That used to be a pretty common occurence… and then it stopped. Next year, not a single snowflake. Same thing the year after.

Areas further north or up the nearby mountains still get some snow, but a lot less than before. I live smack in the middle of France (in a region called Auvergne, which is basically France’s France – everything foreigners think of the French, the French think of the Auvergnats, who seem to take pride in confirming all of that, those beautiful bastards) and the weather around here could roughly be described as an average of the rest of the country, and it seems it’s true for the snow thing too. So what happens here can be extrapolated in a certain measure to the rest of France.

So yeah, no moar snow, I cri ;-;

@ Alan,
That’s fascinatin’ stuff, thank you. You’re like an encyclopedia in human form 🙂
True, seasons are partly a human construct, but the four season model still fits much better north of the equator.
Also, a heads-up I think I found you on FB – sent a friend request so will check in tomorrow.

@ John,

Your snow just basically disappeared? Weird (hey, a rhyme).

And yep, good point about ‘preconceived model’ – the British did that here, over and over, before eventually learning (sort of) that their experiences of livestock, gardening, clothing, building construction – everything, really – just weren’t going to work.
It was only when I was older that I started to realise why Australian christmas is so utterly bizarre – it’s blazing hot, very humid, and yet all our cards, decorations, store decor, gift wrap, EVERYTHING, is full of snow and warm clothes and snowpersons and snow and cold and snow.
I’m quite sure this is not good for our mental health.

I seem to remember that some pretty smart person said that colonization creates schizophrenic societies. I’m pretty sure that’s what they meant, the whole thing with models that are completely disconnected from reality. Christmas in the middle of summer is an example I hadn’t considered, but it does sound bizarre.

The alt-right and other assorted assholes keep saying that whites are superior because… they conquered half the world and thrived, thus proving how adaptive they are ? But when you look at it… well, they never adapted, instead they tried to have the new environments, including people, adapt to them.


@Croquembouche & Mish

Is it just me, or are there more Mammotheers from Queensland than from all the other states combined? =P

Wait, I thought Queensland was the only part of Australia with access to the internet ?

That was obviously sarcasm*, but it’s what we learn in school here… 😐

*ETA : Just to clarify, said sarcasm is directed at our education system that teaches us that sort of shit, not at Australia.

@ SFHC, that’s the impression I get. Our long history as the most progressive state perhaps? /sarcasm.

@ John, but it’s true – Qld is in deep cover as a backwards state but it actually runs the show. And now you will be assassinated because you know too much.

Your comment also reminded me of a recent incident on FB: a US person expressed astonishment at my friend’s cat photo, and when she asked why, he replied “I never knew you were allowed to have cats in Australia! Mind = blown”.
Our minds were equally blown 😀

Christmas in summer is the only sensible way to run society. If you can’t have a nice Christmas barbecue, what’s the point of the festival at all? I’ve been in the Northern Hemisphere for most of my life now and it still feels wrong.

Cultural evidence suggests that the Nazarene Yeshua would have been born in pretty warm weather. Something to do with sheep’s springtime behaviors apparently


Woah. My mind is blown that this person’s serious prejudice beats my sarcastic prejudice.
Although some american minds seem easily blown (no offense US folks :p ). A few years ago I had dinner with friends and an american buddy of theirs was staying at their place for a while. He thought the nasturtium in the salad plates were a pretty decoration – the look on his face when we started eating them was absolutely priceless.

“You people eat flowers !??”

That’s hippie pinko France for ya.

I dated a Californian for two years and a half. My favorite sport was showing her all those things in France or Europe that seem so outlandish to Americans. It’s funny how a lot of things I take for granted are unheard of in the US. Of course I was in for a few surprises myself when I landed in San Francisco.


Never had a barbecue in the snow ? It’s totally doable, just replace the beer with mulled wine.

@ mish

You’re a poet,
But you don’t know it…

@Sinkable John:
I’ve never tried that. It sounds risky. Do the chips and potato salad still remain the same?

(When I was in France at the start of August, we had deep-fried flowers for dinner one night. They were delicious, although to be fair they tasted mostly of deep-fried.)

@ sinkable john & EJ

Being from Yorkshire (where it’s winter for 13 months of the year) I’m quite used to the barbecue in the snow phenomenon. They’re quite fun, but do remember to defrost everything first or you’re there forever.

@EJ, Alan

Barbecue in the snow is one case of awesome+awesome=still awesome.

Never had deep-fried flowers though, I’m used to eating them raw. Olive oil does wonders on them too. Gonna look into the deep-frying thing…

I tried making stuffed fried zucchini blossoms but they fell apart. Probably the cook’s fault. 😉

Has anyone else tried tulips? They taste a little like butter lettuce.


Maybe he’d heard about the rabbit ban and misremembered it?…

… If not, I got nothin’. o_O

@Sinkable John

Hah, I got the same reaction from my grandma just a few weeks ago when I started snacking on the nasturtiums in her garden. She’s been gardening since the ’40s or ’50s and never realised.

Ooh, but if we’re talking about edible flowers, crystallised violets and roses. Nature’s Turkish delight.


My cat used to do that, back when snow was still a thing around here. Now he drinks from people’s glasses. I mess with him by putting a little water at the bottom of a wide glass, and he sticks his face all the way down to reach it.

That’s my revenge for him jumping on my lap all the time and inevitably stepping on the sensitive parts. 8kgs of cat is painful, dammit.

(aside from that, I totally love my asshole cat, even though he’s an asshole)


Tulips are awesome :3
Really all edible flowers are. I’ve always hated zucchini though. It’s involved in a lot of recipes that sound really greaaat but… I dunno, I can’t eat it 🙁


Or maybe it was about that time with some famous dude’s dog (I think Johnny Depp) getting into the country illegally ? Wait, bunnies are banned in Australia ? o_o

And I can imagine how she felt. Like finding out about something that’s been missing from your life all that time even though it was right there. It’s wonderful.

ETA : I’m a fan of violet sweets and syrup. I use the syrup in a few personal grog recipes.

Bunnies are not completely banned here, but in Qld certainly you’re not allowed to keep them as pets. They’re officially a pest animal and there’s been a rather messy history with their introduction and subsequent attempts to eradicate/control them (many of which have been incredibly cruel). AFAIK you can’t keep ferrets in Qld either. When I lived in Victoria there were plenty of both animals around, though.

John, I think your cat could compete with one of mine in the assholery stakes – my boy cat, Shiro, also sticks his head into water glasses, can’t stand doors being closed and will scratch on them at deafening levels until they’re opened, but his worst habit is chewing through electrical cords. So far he’s cost us: 4 phone chargers, one laptop charger, one internet cable, and one really expensive gaming mouse. At the time of their demise, all were connected to live outlets. He doesn’t touch the dead ones. Fortunately for him, he’s a Norwegian Forest Cat and drop-dead gorgeous.

Re edible flowers and fried zucchini – NOM.
@ kupo, I’ve never tried tulips but now I want to 🙂
