Wichita Man Says He Will “Pour Gas On Beaners And Watch Them Burn”

A Wichita man stated in a Facebook post he was going to “pour some gas on beaners and watch them burn”

  • Garth Von Driska made the post that claimed he was going to attack both Mexicans and blacks

  • Musician Brook Blanche made a post with a screenshot addressing the racist post

  • Driska also stated “blacks” were gonna “start getting strung or swung from a light pole”

Correction: Blanche informed TDH the post with the threats came first. In the article it states the threats was the second post made by Driska.

A man in Wichita, Kansas is being brought to the attention of social media users after he said he would “pour some gas on beaners and watch them burn” in a post on Facebook. The post went on to say some “blacks are gonna start getting strung or swung from a light pole”.

The post was screenshot and brought to the attention of other social media users by musician Brook Blanche. Blanche posted the extremely racist post to his personal Facebook with the explanation that he had asked Garth Von Driska to take down a different racially charged post. Instead of taking it down, Driska decided to make the post threatening violence against minorities.

Well, this is disgusting bullshit and I asked him to take it down and he doubled down and posted more bullshit. I don’t know how to communicate in this world anymore. I noticed alot of mutual friends and figured they might have an idea.

Driska’s original post reads as follows:

Why is it that because of my white skin and because I hold down a job I am oppressing my fellow black man or my fellow Mexican man. When in return 80 percent black people are on some form of assisted living and use and abuse the system to the fullest. 72 percent Hispanic are on assisted living and use and abuse the system to the fullest. But it’s my fault because I’m the white man.

For the record, the 2015 U.S. census showed only 21.3% of the U.S. population participates in some form of government assistance. These numbers alone disprove Driska’s claim. Regardless, after Blanche reached out, Driska made the following post to his Facebook.

I have every main race in my family in some form of relation. I am tired of hearing from Mexicans and black people I’m a fucking racist because I am white. I’m gonna start showing some mother fuckers what a white racist I can be very shortly and it’s gonna be some crazy white boy racist shit where we pour gas on beaners and watch them burn or some blacks are gonna start getting strung and swung from a tree or a light pole kind of white boy crazy shit.

If the response to Driska’s hate-fueled words is anything like the response other social media bigots have received, he won’t have to worry about working his job much longer.
