The mainstream media has been downplaying the racism inherent in the radical left for some time, in an effort to preserve their political might.
In the wake of Donald Trump’s election, the democrats and their leftist cohorts began a process of radicalization that was loudly dubbed the “resistance”. The idea was simple; oppose Donald Trump and his agenda at all costs, while simultaneously attacking his base and the American conservative majority.
Of course, a major aspect of the so-called “resistance” was an uncouth attempt to portray the President as some form of bigot and xenophobe – a distinction that is clearly and quickly refuted by taking a look at his marital history.
Still, the left continued to push this bizarre accusation in the face of their own intrinsic bigotry. Now, as more details emerge surrounding an incident in Tennessee last week, the left’s flimsy claim to racial innocence has once again begun withering away.
“A note found in the car of a man charged with spraying deadly gunfire at a Tennessee church made reference to revenge for a white supremacist’s massacre at a black church in Charleston, South Carolina, two years earlier, law enforcement officials told The Associated Press.
“The note could offer a glimpse into Emanuel Kidega Samson’s mindset at the time of Sunday’s shooting and a possible motive for the rampage, which killed a woman and wounded six other people. The Associated Press has not viewed the note, but it was summarized in an investigative report circulating among law enforcement. Two officials read to AP from the note.
“The report said that ‘in sum and in no way verbatim,’ the note referenced revenge or retaliation for Dylann Roof, the white supremacist who killed nine black worshippers at a South Carolina church in 2015 and has since been sentenced to death. It wasn’t clear what precisely Samson is alleged to have written about the Roof shooting, or whether his note contained other important details that might also speak to a motivation or state of mind.”
It seems that the left’s belief in the polarization of race has, in no small part, contributed to the tension that we find in our country today.
Dylann Roof’s crimes were heinous to say the least, but hate begets hate every time. The constant, derivative arguments regarding racism in America have been forcefully exacerbated by the radical left and by the mainstream media, leading directly to the violence that we see today. Samson’s crimes may never have occurred had the rhetoric within our nation’s so-called “news” outlets been more realistic and less hyperbolic.
