LA Sheriff Slams Attack on Larry Elder: ‘How Is This Not A Hate Crime?’

'“Woke privilege” means a white woman can wear a gorilla mask and attack a black man without fear of being called a racist...'

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva slammed the attack on California recall candidate Larry Elder and said the woman who threw an egg at him and hit his security guard should be charged with a “hate crime.”

“How is this not a hate crime?” Villanueva asked. “Because ‘woke privilege’ means a white woman can wear a gorilla mask and attack a black man without fear of being called a racist.”

The unidentified woman, who was wearing a gorilla mask when she attacked Elder’s team, threw an egg that narrowly missed Elder’s head.

When Elder’s security guard confronted her, she hit him in the face.

Villanueva, a Democrat who frequently criticizes the “woke Left,” encouraged people to consider the reaction if the tables were turned.

“Just imagine the outrage if the roles had been reversed,” he said.

“We would never hear the end of it,” he continued. “People need to be held accountable on both sides of the aisle. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. Why didn’t Gavin Newsom call out this reprehensible behavior?”

LAPD issued a press release Thursday night saying two men also attacked Elder’s security guard and asked for the public’s help in identifying those suspects, as well as the masked woman.

Elder quipped that the woman who attacked him “might be one of the 20,000 felons from our prisons released by our soft-on-crime governor.”

“If I were a Democrat, obviously, this would be called systemic racism—they’d be calling it a hate crime,” Elder said. “I don’t like to play that game.”
