Pennsylvania’s Democrat Senate hopeful John Fetterman is an absolute trainwreck of a person and candidate. That he’s in serious contention to win a seat in Washington sums up the state of the voting populace of America in 2022.
Fetterman’s past has been well documented, particularly by Tucker Carlson. In a recent monologue, Carlson laid out exactly the type of pathetic life Fetterman has led, which includes receiving an allowance from his parents well into his forties as his main source of income.
He later became mayor of a small town, which he promptly used as a launching pad to become the state’s Lieutenant Governor (yikes) and now very likely its next Senator (double yikes).
Fortunately, more and more from his past is coming out, including this bizarre story of him vandalizing a black-owned business while he was mayor. Yes, while he was the acting mayor he admitted to vandalizing a business in an effort to “put them on notice.” And I’m sure he would never abuse his Senatorial powers against American citizens if elected.
Here’s the uncovered local news report from that incident, which explains that Fetterman went to the club one night and rearranged letters of a sign at a business in his town, all while acknowledging he knew he was on surveillance.
When John Fetterman (D) was Mayor of Braddock he vandalized a local black owned business. Fetterman wanted to send a message that the government was going to shut down the black nightclub. This was a TV news story about Fetterman's vandalism at the time:pic.twitter.com/cqUeUNTjNE

I know that they have cameras out front and it was my way of putting them on notice. It was a very public way that I chose to – it was my way of putting them on notice. Hey, we’re going to shut you down.
I can believe he’s a tyrant. I can believe he felt like this was totally justified. The only thing I can’t believe is that he knew he was on camera. My guess is that was his response to getting busted for a stupid and malicious act.
Amazingly, the story ends with this other tweet from the same account:
As an epilogue to this story, John Fetterman’s crusade against a black own business opening in his hometown did not succeed. Club Elegance is still open today. DJ Coles played there last week and there was a food truck outside.
Twitter appropriately roasted this buffoon with some spot-on comments:
Even worse than messing with a small business owner’s property, he is threatening a small business that he was gonna close it down? Sounds like he was weaponizing the government to put this guy out of business.
“He’s too hard on crime” is the new position?
Hmm, attacks a black business, holds an innocent black man at gun point, seems to be a pattern here, what if Marjorie Taylor Green did these things? They’d call her a . . . a . . . bad person? A ra-, A ra-, A raging maniac?
And yet, every black person in Philly will vote for him. And remember, on top of this he also chased down a black youth with a shotgun
The last two comments relate to a 2013 story of Fetterman chasing down a black man at gun point. If the black man had been named Ahmad Arbury, we’d know everything about this and Black Lives Matter would be burning down his house; instead, this guy gets a free pass for running after a black guy with a shotgun.
NBC reported on the story:
John Fetterman said he heard what sounded like gunfire and saw a man running away. So he reacted by getting his kid inside to safety before he called 911.
What Fetterman did next, however, still haunts him nine years later as he campaigns for the Democratic nomination for the Senate in Pennsylvania: He chased the man down with a shotgun and detained him until police arrived.
It turned out that the man was jogging and wearing running clothes. According to a police report, the man was unarmed and said the sound of gunfire was actually fireworks, although two witnesses thought they heard shots.
The man Fetterman pulled a gun on is Black. Fetterman — the mayor of the Pittsburgh-area borough of Braddock at the time and now the state’s lieutenant governor — is white.
Fetterman, 52, said he couldn’t tell the jogger’s race initially because of how he was bundled up in the winter cold.
