As we reported this week, members of the left are turning themselves into pretzels trying to explain away why a gay, black man would pick up a gun and shoot two innocent white people on live television.Obviously, it wasn’t ACTUALLY his fault. He was a victim, and the people he killed were “probably” racist anyway (in which case, it was justified).
The latest to join this shameful chorus is Shaun King, one of the leaders of the #BlackLivesMatter movement – who as it turns out has been living his own lie, pretending to be of “mixed race” when in fact he is just a mixed up white guy.But that’s a minor point, in the grand scheme of things.
What’s more disturbing is his tweet in which he asks why do “our frustrated people” go on killing sprees more than any other country?
So, if a black leftist like Vester Lee Flanagan kills people he was just frustrated. But if a nutbag like Dylan Roof commits mass murder, it’s because he’s a racist? I’m confused.
Meanwhile, Mr. King needs to check the statistics. As we reported here, based on per capita shootings, the U.S. is not top of the list. But of course, facts are of little interest to liberals.
By the way, on the subject of speaking out bravely, Mr. King has blocked Allen West from following him on Twitter. No problem Mr. King. Plenty of other outlets are happy to share your public pronouncements.[Note: This article was written by Michele Hickford]
