Yeah, how convenient, talk about an eerie coincidence or is it an eerie coincidence?

How has Trump been racist? How do you know that this shooter was influenced by anyone? Opinions don't count only facts do.

The only browning down we object to is via illegal immigration and rightly so! It's neither natural nor lawful.
Why do you care about what anyone says about the President?

He's not a member of your family.

He's not a personal friend.

Why do you feel protective towards him ?

My response was to another poster who was pointing out the so-called vileness of the right and calling our president a racist. Why does the liberal left continue to criticize our president and call him vile names? In your own words.....he's not a member of their families nor is he a personal friend of theirs either! See how that works? Let's not be a hypocrite here!

I think all presidents deserve a level of respect and I think we should be respectful towards our fellow citizens also even if we don't agree politically. If we all practiced that instead of this childish name calling and hatred we'd have a better society. Try it some time!

Biggest bunch a Hypocrites out there. They will call all of you pigs, and demonize all police, then expect you to run into gunfire to save them. Leftist belong in a world of self policing, open Borders, and Anarchy.

So do we get to condemn all illegal aliens for the deaths of thousands of Americans, thru murder, and dwi's? Asking for a friend. And how about all dems for the scalise shooting, antifa violence?

They are not. If I choose to walk through a gang infested neighborhood, I am knowingly putting my life at risk. If I take my kids to Walmart to do back to school shopping, I am not. Or I shouldn't be, though these days that's not true anymore either.

But hey, keep pretending they are exactly the same thing.

And keep pretending you have no agenda here.

No one buys it.
Exactly!

What any of this has to do with violent crime in our cities is what I don't get.

Point #1 - Any rhetoric from conservative whites that SJWs and "The Left" do not agree with now, or that goes against their talking points, will be labeled as "white supremacist," "white nationalism," etc.


Point #2 - Violent crime in our cities, just like the 47+ shootings that happened in Chicago over the weekend, never gets much media attention. 47 shootings in two days in one of our biggest cities and networks like CNN and MSNBC don't cover it for 10 seconds? Rather strange.

A lot of it has to do with the fact that these types of shootings do not fit the media agenda/script/narrative like a white "mass shooter" does. Another example would be how quickly the black shooter in Dallas in 2016 who targeted cops disappeared from most media airwaves rather quickly. Again, it did not fit their agenda like a white shooter does.

When a white commits a mass shooting, blame whites.

When a muslim commits a mass shooting, blame whites.

It's the same to the people who live in "gang infested neighborhoods." Or do those people not count in your world?
