Harry Dunn, the Capitol Hill Police Department officer who claimed, without evidence, during Tuesday’s Congressional hearing that he was called a “n****r” by Jan. 6 Trump supporters, is a devout left-wing activist who frequently posted about his hatred for conservatives and his association with black supremacists on Twitter.

In May, Dunn posted a picture of a tattoo that he had gotten to show off his support for black grievance politics. “The eye is crying blood, the black heart represents the struggle of black people. Blood tears for all the bloodshed in the struggle for equality while getting in ‘good trouble’. The red lightning is chaos all around #goodtrouble #JohnLewis,” Dunn wrote in support of dead politician and political avtivist John Lewis.

“If me talking about racism makes you uncomfortable, then thats [sic] exactly why I’m doing it,” Dunn declared in April. He also narrated an anti-Trump political video for liberal organization The Lincoln Project.

During the June 2020 George Floyd riots, Dunn, who has been held up as a model police officer who represents the collective feelings of law enforcement, retweeted a post attacking police officers.
The amount of police brutality at the anti-police brutality protests is proving a lot of points.

Dunn also posted a video mocking a security threat towards former President Donald Trump.
Perhaps most alarmingly, in June 2019 Dunn retweeted a video from black supremacist Tariq Nasheed that instigated hate towards a White man. Dunn compared the man to Trayvon Martin attack survivor George Zimmerman, and appeared to negatively reference heritage and sexual orientation by hyperbolizing that the man had “a Confederate and Rainbow flag wrapped around him.”
Fox News host Tucker Carlson, one of the targets of Dunn’s political rage, pointed out the CHPD officer’s history of leftist Twitter activism, stating “Harry Dunn has very little in common with your average cop. Dunn is an angry left-wing political activist.”

Dunn describes himself as an “Insurrection Stopper” in his Twitter bio and infamously claimed without evidence on Tuesday that he was called a “n****r” by election integrity protesters on Jan. 6.
