The new Biden administration official has been criticized in the past for social media posts in which he likened police to “slave patrols,” as well as for posts expressing anti-Israel sentiment and criticizing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

“Abolish ICE,” tweeted Jan. 17Number2018.

“In 1704, the colony of Carolina organized America’s first slave patrols. Slave patrols maintained economic order and helped wealthy landowners recover and punish slaves, who were essentially considered property,” according to Eastern Kentucky University.

The critical tweets from Interior Department official Tyler Cherry began surfacing shortly after he was promoted last week to join the White House communications team.

“I pray for Baltimore, but I pray even harder for an end to a capitalist police state that is driven by explicit and implicit racial bias,” Cherry, who worked for three years under Interior Secretary Deb Haaland, wrote in 2015 after the death of Freddie Gray, a Black man who died in police custody.

A few months later, in another Twitter post, he wrote: “It’s time to remember that modern policing is a direct evolution of slave patrols and lynch mobs.” Fox News Digital.

Additionally, several other tweets from Cherry in 2014 praised pro-Palestinian causes, including one that read, “Let’s cheer in the bar for an end to the occupation of Palestine. No shame, no glaring. #ISupportGaza #FreePalestine.”

Cherry has previously posted about the Republican Party being too focused on “white grievance politics”.

Following the recent backlash, Cherry took to Twitter on Sunday to address her past social media posts, writing, “My past social media posts from when I was younger do not reflect my current views. Period.”

“I support the policies of the current administration and will continue to focus my outreach efforts on climate and environmental policy,” he added.

Additionally, the White House defended Cherry’s hiring in a statement. Fox News“We are very proud to welcome Tyler to the team,” White House senior deputy press secretary Andrew Bates told the station.
