Meet Phil Ryan. He’s a cop and police instructor in Texas, and he is apparently a big fan of two things:

  1. Good ol’ Dixie (and everything that comes with it: slavery, exaggerated classism, and of course treason), and;
  2. Terrorist-style murder of people doing to monuments honoring seditious generals what a crowd in Baghdad did to a Saddam Hussein statue. Sure, it’s civil and arguably criminal disobedience, but who needs a court system anyway when you can go all ISIS on the “social justice warriors”!

Here is a screenshot of a post Ryan made last Wednesday to his Facebook account (his Facebook ID is “txconcealedcarry”, so he’s not afraid to make it obvious he is an NRA indoctrinee) on August 15 (click to see full-size version):

It appears that Ryan pulled the post sometime yesterday after several social media sites and a YouTube user took note of it – probably because so many people were calling out Ryan in comments. found several of them:

“He must be fired! The world is watching since this is all over the internet! And, the McKinney Police Dept. should fire him for this.”

McKinney Police Department is this your officer????”

“Fire his a**.”

“So you want a open carry person to shoot someone because they are defacing a Statue?”

“Phil Ryan always knows how to turn a little firecracker into Hiroshima.”

It is unclear as to whether Ryan’s bosses in Texas will take any punitive action, but given what we have heard about many of Texas’ local and state police organizations – and the proliferation of white supremacists and racist that have established a beach-head within law enforcement organizations across the nation – we have a feeling Ryan is headed for a raise. It’s the Dixie way!

UPDATE: And it’s unclear whether Phil or any of the people who actually buy his “kill the slaver momunemt topplers” are going to have a meltdown about this overnight development (hat tip: Twitter’s :

The University of Texas at Austin removed the statues of three Confederate-era figures from a main area on campus on Monday, saying they had become symbols of white supremacy and that they were taken down overnight to avoid confrontations.

“Last week, the horrific displays of hatred at the University of Virginia and in Charlottesville shocked and saddened the nation,” University of Texas at Austin President Greg Fenves said in a statement.

“These events make it clear, now more than ever, that Confederate monuments have become symbols of modern white supremacy and neo-Nazism.”

Fenves announced the removal of the statues shortly before midnight on Sunday. By about 3 a.m. local time on Monday, they had all been taken down, said Cindy Posey, director of campus safety communications. It was done at night as a safety measure to avoid confrontations, she said.

Given Phil Ryan’s call to jihad, that was a prudent move.
