A couple went to a bar, had a drink, and at some point kissed in public. It happens all the time, right? They left the bar, went outside, and were stabbed by a lunatic with white power tattoos all over. This interracial couple apparently enraged 32-year old Daniel Rowe by daring to appear together in public and kiss.

Washington Post:

Rowe, 32, walked up to the couple and, without warning, 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.

“The suspect is unknown to the victims and the attack appears to have been unprovoked,” police said in the statement.

It appears that Rowe has been influenced by our current political climate.

“He tells them, ‘Yeah, I stabbed them. I’m a white supremacist,'” Lower said. “He begins talking about Donald Trump rallies and attacking people at the Black Lives Matter protest.”

But wait, there's more according to The Olympian:

When police talked to Rowe, he said that he was part of a white supremacist group, and that he had come downtown in reaction to the anti-police graffiti put up Sunday night. He said he had taken a “blood oath” to fight on the street.

I thought Trump said we need more police? What is this "blood oath" nonsense?

Daniel Rowe was recently released from prison on robbery charges, according to reports. Prison is a breeding ground for white supremacist gangs such as the Aryan Brotherhood.

This kind of behavior won't let up for a long time. The most dangerous thing Trump has done in this election is give white supremacists room to breathe in the social atmosphere, where they can nurture and grow their hate to such a degree that they feel absolutely justified in pulling out a knife and stabbing people because of their skin color.

This has been another installment of "Why Donald Trump Can't Be President." There will be more, no doubt.
