St. Louis County Cop Suspended for Bigoted, Violent Rant


You may have seen footage of the St. Louis County police officer who shoved CNN reporter Don Lemon. Well guess what? That same officer has now been suspended after video came out of him giving a vile speech to the Oath Keepers. The speech sounds like your standard right wing nonsense delivered by your cranky (and very shouty) uncle.

In addition to ranting about “black robed perverts,” affirmative action, hate crime laws, Muslims, “sodomites” on the Supreme Court, “sodomites and females” in the military and declaring that the people he meets on domestic violence calls should just “shoot each other and get it over with”, and seemingly bragging about killing people, Page manages to hit a gamut of crackpot conspiracy theories. He says President Obama is secretly a Kenyan, and claims he (Page) was briefed on the 9/11 attacks before they ever happened.

It’s a truly bizarre speech. He actually implies that the state of Missouri is a “sovereign nation” under international law. Then there’s this bizarre section:

Speaking of birth certificates, this is a pet peeve of mine…On my birth certificate, it says my father’s name, John William Page, our address, and my mother’s name, Gladys Marie Page, address, then it has my name. And down here it says “Caucasian male.” I went down and got me a new birth certificate, someone wanted it at the police department, and I was a white male. I said wait a minute here, evolution must be true. How did I become a white male from a Caucasian male? There’s a reason for it if you understand psychological warfare. It’s taking away your humanity, which makes the soldier who’s going to kill you feel much easier. I can’t get too deep into it because I don’t have the time, but the first thing they do when they want to kill you is they start by changing who you are, they take away your identity.

I have no idea what to say about that. All I can do is shake my head.

    I take it the St. Louis County police department doesn’t have any psychiatric screening for its officers.

    I saw that. A further example that strength of feeling and how strongly you hold an opinion often has little if anything do do how much you know about, or understand the subject.

    …to the Oath Keepers.

    Remind me again, the Oath Keepers are law enforcement officers who take a pledge not to follow any orders in violation of the Constitution? Like “stop and frisk” without probable cause? Or asset forfeiture without charges being filed? (Why is everyone laughing at me?)

    Looks like he’s going to have a paid vacation until things cool off and he can go back to work.

    This guy is saying that his entire identity, the only thing that makes him who he is, is being WHITE. Not caucasian, WHITE.

    That’s all you need to know about the guy.

    “And the reason I didn’t mention it to anybody is because BENGHAZI!!!!!

    I live in Belleville, IL but work in Clayton, MO — about 40 feet from the St. Louis Police HQ. Just sent the CoP there an email message imploring them to fire this bigoted, homophobic, misogynistic asshole. Didn’t call him an asshole in the message of course — had to keep it civilized (although that was unbelievably difficult!)

    @theschwa (#1):

    I was born in the Caucasus Mountains! NOT the White Mountains!!

    And definitely not in the City of Gold and Lead!

    (Don’t mind me, I’ll just jump into this Pool of Fire…)

    Or the use of “no announce” search warrants. At all. IMHO.
    Or pointing guns at people for no good reason when that would be a serious charge if anyone but a cop did it. (Also excluding privileged white treasonous gunowners in Nevada with Bundy. No seriously – I think a good case can be made that they were taking part in an armed rebellion. They thought so at least.)

    At first glance, I support the Oath Keepers. It seems that they’re just some sovereign citizen nutjobs. Damnit. Why aren’t there any sane people trying to form a political movement amongst cops with that same attitude of “fuck illegal orders” but with a sane understanding of what is an illegal order?

    What’s wrong with theirs?

    “Any order coming from a Communist, Liberal, Democrat, or RINO.”
