All the Ways We Can Politicize a Tragedy

How the media respond to mass shootings speaks volumes, and sticks to their scripts.

Following yet another significant mass shooting (the Atlanta one, not Boulder or any others that may have happened over the weekend) we turn to the most important question: How can it be politicized?

That means reflexively declaring the murders in Georgia a hate crime against Asians, apparently triggered within a mentally ill white man by remarks Trump made a year ago labeling COVID the “Wuhan Flu.” The women killed, who had a mix of Korean and Chinese names and some of whom may have been American citizens, were first turned into generic “Asians” and then into ubiquitous props—victims of, well, Trump, white supremacy, maybe all Fox News viewers.

Of the eight people shot, two, one-fourth, were not Asian at all and are quickly falling out of the media’s focus as not tracking with the narrative. Trump’s direct culpability may be grounds for another impeachment. Kidding. Of course the anti-Asian hate crime politicization is wrong.

Instead, we should all agree that the proper politicization is “guns are simply too easy to obtain in America.” While the media focused on the three quarters of the victims who were Asian, gleefully mispronouncing the “foreign” names (#SAYHERNAME, nah, too hard) and reaffirmed that “sex work” and the trafficking that drives it are A-OK (the media sang a different song about rub’n’tug joints when Patriots owner Robert Kraft was caught in one), they wasted valuable time not tracking down the gun store where the killer got his weapon.

I recall how the shooting at the Pulse gay bar in Floriduh was all about evil homophobic white people.

Until the shooter was revealed to be a muslim immigrant.

Then it was about the guns, time to move on.

I remember how the San Berdoo shootings were about angry white people, and the FBI was never willing to identify them as muslim terrorists.   Obama banned the use of the word terrorism under his reign of treason.

The pattern is so obvious, so predictable, it's astounding that even people stupid enough to vote for Rodents can't see it happening right in front of their faces.

You would think the White Guilt POPs (Persons of Pallor) would start to feel the targets on their chests after all this time.   But, no, they've clearly been trained to believe that their open proclamations of their own guild for their chromosomes will protect them from the rage they themselves are building in this country.

Certainly when the SHTF and the race riots start in earnest, there won't be any white Pro-2A Americans helping them, and there won't be any cops on their side, either.    They must really believe that making guns illegal means there won't be any guns out on the streets any more.

If they weren't stupid, they wouldn't have voted Rodent in the first place.  The Morlocks do eat the Eloi, after all.
The GOP is not the party leadership.  The GOP is the party MEMBERSHIP.   The members need to kick the leaders out if they leaders are going the wrong way.  No coddling allowed.
