Tucker spews white supremacy bullshit on his program and he's wrong on this. Hate crimes are on the rise. We have a president that lies in order to demonize immigrants. And among our mass shooting and gun violence epidemic there is an uptick in racially motivated terrorist attacks.I’m not sure I understand. Tucker is a bit nauseating, but his point holds true.
While the El Paso shooter was a racist piece of shit, the thought was the Dayton shooter was targeting a specific set of people initially, and now we know the California shooter had a “hit list” with politicians on both sides of aisle.
The Dayton shooter is also now known as an Elizabeth Warren supporter......which, who gives a fuck IMO, except it should make people think twice about Trump supporters being the only capable people of these monstrous acts.
Even though a Bernie Sanders supporter tried to murder as many GOP Congressmen as he could during a charity softball practice, and a separate Bernie Sanders knifed people as much as he could on a subway in Portland.
The whole thing is weird to me.
Sanders and Warren (can't speak for all of their supporters obviously) do not campaign on de-humanization or violence, unlike Trump. People are right to condemn the hateful rhetoric of the president and link it to El Paso because he had a manifesto literally filled with talking points from the President and people like Tucker. That said, ANY politician should obviously condemn acts of violence that may have been motivated by them and seek to improve their messaging to keep humanity and dignity intact.
Mass shootings aren't always politically motivated acts of terror, and analyzing what they were into (like Marilyn Manson or video games) is rarely all that helpful. It's always abhorrent whether motivated by a leftist agenda, far-right bigotry, or the person simply being a twisted psychopath that probably hates women.
