Mexica Movement adherent Gaudencio Fernandez is at it once again, this time with a sign attacking a detective with the Manassas City Police Department and potentially calling him out as a target for gang violence. While the city is busily restricting the free speech rights of pro-lifers near a Manassas abortion clinic, local zoning officials once again seem to have little interest in standing up to this civic vandal who now may be putting the lives of police officers in danger. Will the City of Manassas finally put an end to this politically-motivated civic vandalism and act to protect the safety of law enforcement officers? Let’s hope so. It’s well past time to tear up the free pass that Gaudencio Fernandez seems to be entitled to.
I’ve blurred out the name of the detective, who curiously has a Hispanic name yet still draws venom from Fernandez’s bizarre ideology of “indigenous” racial superiority. Gaudencio Fernandez apparently doesn’t remember much of the exam he took in order to become a citizen, and seems to think that police officers not only arrest people, but then personally incarcerate them and control whether they are held or released. His continual state of utter confusion, as evidenced by his assertion that the citizens of Manassas are personally responsible for slavery and that our national borders are illegal, doesn’t inspire a lot of confidence in Fernandez’s description of this case. Doubtless this is once again another incoherent rant, completely lacking in any factual basis.
Incoherent or not, the message to the MS-13 gang-bangers who take Gaudencio Fernandez seriously is pretty easily understood. This detective is bad, and they’d be better off without him. With the intertwining of nacroterrorism, illegal alien smuggling, and gang violence, identifying a law enforcement officer in this way may seriously endanger his safety. Gaudencio has seriously crossed a line here from being a persistent annoyance to becoming a public safety problem. This has to end, and end quickly.
So while the city once again struggles with what to do about this miscreant, it’s busy putting in place new restrictions to govern where a few pro-lifers and old ladies with rosaries can hold up signs and pray near the abortion clinic on Route 234, where they’ve been holding vigil for about fifteen years without incident. Unspecified complaints were made that these folks were blocking traffic — a pretty ludicrous charge that the long history here doesn’t support at all. That has resulted in a change being made to their permit by the city officials that have been studiously avoiding any action regarding Gaudencio Fernandez who sponsors unpermittted events on a regular basis, and continually erects bizarre signs in the historic district.
Yeah, those old ladies with Rosaries are a big threat we’ve got to do something about right now. But that guy hanging huge signs in the historic district espousing racial superiority and potentially endangering a law enforcement official? That’s free speech, and there’s nothing to be done about that.
