The left is hellbent on starting (or worsening) a race war in the United States.
This indisputable fact is bolstered by the numerous incidents of tragic violence at the hands of non-whites that get wholly ignored while incidents such as this, or the Jan. 6 Capitol protest, are plastered across every mainstream media outlet.
Let’s break it down.
Since the Jan. 6 Capitol protests, non-white offenders have terrorized parts of the country without any national uproar from leftists or the mainstream media.
Here are the events that leftists deem irrelevant:
1. March 2021 – Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa shot up a grocery store in Boulder, Colorado leaving ten dead and two injured. This was an almost identical case to yesterday’s supermarket shooting in Buffalo, New York except the gunman was Muslim.
2. November 2021 – A follower of Black Lives Matter, Darrell Brooks Jr., drove his SUV through a Christmas Parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin leaving six dead and many more injured. Mainstream media outlets were quick to bury this story as Brooks’ social media showed a history of anti-white rage.
3. April 2022 – Leftists and mainstream media outlets have routinely ignored FOUR mass shootings by black people that occurred just last month.
You would think if media outlets have a habit of burying stories of mass shootings they would do so regardless of the assailant’s race — but no. A white shooter is perfect media fodder as it bolsters their ‘white man bad’ narrative and fuels the fires of racial tensions across America — fires that directly help Democrats at the polls.
If that wasn’t bad enough, it turns out Payton Gendron, the teenager responsible for killing 10 and wounding three in a Buffalo supermarket on Saturday, was already on the FBI’s radar.
In June 2021, Gendron, 18, was investigated by the FBI after he threatened to shoot up his high school. He was given a psychiatric evaluation only later to be cleared by law enforcement, according to an anonymous source.
Police accused Gendron, a white man, of driving from “hours away” to wreak havoc in a predominantly black neighborhood. Eleven of the victims were black, and two were white, Stephen Belongia, the special agent leading the FBI’s field office in Buffalo, said, adding that this case was being investigated as a hate crime and a “case of racially motivated violent extremism,” according to the New York Times.
Meanwhile, none of the aforementioned tragedies committed by non-white assailants were ever investigated as racially-motivated hate crimes.
Gendron, dressed in tactical gear with a helmet on, livestreamed the shooting at Tops Friendly Market to Twitch. Two minutes after Gendron started livestreaming, Twitch took his channel offline, officials said.
He was arraigned before Buffalo City Court Chief Judge Craig Hannah on Saturday on one count of first-degree murder. Gendron pleaded not guilty.
The violence committed by the hands of radicalized Americans is unacceptable regardless of the assailant’s race — but that isn’t how leftists see it.
If they aren’t careful, situations like these will only become more frequent.
