When disaster strikes, so do the looters. Increased Twitter activity revealed that with Hurricane Matthew set to devastate the east coast, some people are preparing to callously exploit the mayhem by going on looting sprees.
The extreme weather event is hours away from launching a “potentially catastrophic” Category 5 siege on Florida’s east coast before stretching into Georgia and South Carolina, but some are more concerned about how they can hijack the chaos to commit criminal acts.
A quick Twitter search reveals dozens of messages posted by Americans living in or near the affected areas that brazenly talk about the opportunity for looting that the hurricane will provide.
“God Please let this hurricane hit us so I can do some looting,” tweeted one user.
“So we looting after the hurricane? I do need a new TV & iPhone and some clothes,” added another.
“Ready for hurricane Matthew to hit so I can start looting,” remarked another.
When asked if they would be looting, one Twitter user responded, “yep, but in white neighborhoods.”
An analysis of the Twitter accounts shows that many of them are sympathetic towards ‘Black Lives Matter’ – supporters of which have used BLM protests as an excuse to carry out mass looting in Ferguson, Baltimore and most recently Charlotte.
Some of the accounts also featured anti-Donald Trump posts as well tweets complaining about racism and “cultural appropriation”.
It goes without saying that these kind of tweets are an absolute disgrace – over a hundred people have already died in Haiti as a result of the hurricane – but they are par for the course when it comes to BLM supporters and leftists in general.
