The claim of a significant white supremacist threat (led by Trump, no less) is the latest cynical canard of a left that seeks to divide the nation into competing tribes.
Over the past weekend In El Paso, a terrorist inspired by many things, including ecology (Mother Jones characterizes the shooter as an “eco-facist”) — but not by Trump — committed a mass shooting, killing twenty and wounding twenty-six. In Dayton, Ohio, a Liewatha-supporting Antifa Satanist committed a mass shooting, killing nine and injuring twenty-seven. And unreported in the national news of the day, in Chicago, a series of murders and shootings injured fifty-two and claimed the life seven. But that was a fairly normal weekend in the Windy City. All or almost all the violence there was committed by inner-city blacks, and almost all of it was committed against inner-city blacks, so the progressive left merely yawned. And what do we hear about in the news but . . . Trump inspires mass murders by white supremacists?
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) joined fellow Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke in describing President Donald Trump as a white supremacist.
The Massachusetts Democrat agreed the president was a racist, and said he had emboldened other white supremacists, in an interview with the New York Times.
Joe “they’re gonna’ put y’all back in chains” Biden, never one to be out demagogued, “on Wednesday blamed President Trump for several high-profile incidents of racial violence in the U.S., accusing the president of inspiring deadly hate crimes by embracing white nationalist extremism.” Democrat Rep. Joaquin Castro doxed contributors to Trump living in his district, saying that they needed to be shamed for being active supporters of white-nationalism and, by extension, now responsible for mass murder led by Trump. Meanwhile, MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace accused the President of seeking “to exterminate Latinos.” The Washington Examiner rolls up the many examples of how the media has become “unhinged” in their progressive bias over the shootings.
Perhaps the best take on this “white supremacist” nonsense comes from Tucker Carlson and Victor Davis Hanson
