American politics today never fails to meet the low expectations of the public. The latest example is the politically transparent effort by Democrats and their media allies to blame political opponents for the Payton Gendron massacre in Buffalo.

These days, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez often looks over her shoulder, the main exploit being New York Senator Chuck Schumer. He used the moment to place the blame on the recently announced and tested election campaign theme of the focus group: “The MAGA Republican Party.”

“Every time Republicans or MAGA experts vilify wrongful immigrants and call them invaders, each time they falsely claim that millions of undocumented people vote in our election, and each time stubborn voices loudly lament the disintegration of an imagined ‘classical’ America. very clear: MAGA’s hardline Republicans argue that people of color and minorities are somehow posing a threat – a threat – to the American way of life. “

In short, this is the alternative theory. It is a dangerous and profound anti-American worldview. It poisons the minds of those who spend hours wandering the darkest wastelands of the Internet. ”

We have been pro-immigration longer than Mr. Schumer has been in Congress, and politicians should be careful in their rhetoric. But note his logic about the cause of the massacre: Political opposition to unchecked immigration, or support for the integrity of the ballot and American values, led Payton to Gendron killed 10 African-Americans at a Buffalo supermarket. Oh, and Mr. Schumer has also been on Fox News (where we have a TV show) as companions in domestic terrorism.

Mr. Gendron has fallen into some kind of ideological hole, but he may also be mentally ill. He talked about dropping out of his high school, perhaps at graduation. The school referred him to the police, who referred him for psychiatric counseling. But he claims to have gotten lost in the healthcare maze, and that he was allowed to buy a gun. The question that needs to be asked is why so many adults have failed to act to protect the community from a young person of an age where mental illness is frequent.

As for his manifesto, it is clearly rife with racism and anti-Semitism. But it is also full of other protests – against conservatives, towards “ecological fascism”. They are the fragmentary product of a deeply troubled mind. The idea that Gendron was mass killed by Republican Representative Elise Stefanik’s anti-immigration Facebook ads is preposterous.

The media massacre blame game also follows only one path. When a deranged black man ran down white grandmothers at a holiday parade in Waukesha, Wis., the media soon turned against the gruesome story. President Biden did not show up and declare America in danger of losing its democracy, as he did in Buffalo on Tuesday.

When a Bernie Sanders supporter and MSNBC fan nearly killed Representative Steve Scalise at a baseball practice in 2017, no one could reasonably blame Mr. Sanders or MSNBC’s anti-Republican rhetoric for the violence. gun. No one reasonably did this because they realized the men who pulled the trigger or drove the SUV in Waukesha were held accountable for their actions.

“White Substitute Theory” is a sensational statement that should have no place in American politics. It fuels a politically and culturally corrosive racial obsession. If the point of the theory is that Democrats want to flood America with people of color to forge a “coalition of ascendants,” as some on the left have boasted, then that hope has become a reality. should be disappointed. Hispanics and Asian immigrants often share conservative values, and many of them are voting Republican as the Democratic left moves deeper into the swamps of craze. identity.

But Democrats and mainstream media want to use “alternative theory” as a stigma to smear as racist anyone who doesn’t like open borders, or critical racial theory. , or the Democratic Party’s super-racial consciousness. And now they want to claim that Republicans and mainstream conservatives are accomplices in racially motivated domestic terrorism.

Exploiting a serial killer is despicable, but especially when it’s a political strategy to stay in power in an election year.
