FBI Sees No Racism Motive In Atlanta Spa Shootings, Despite Media/Democrat Claims Otherwise

FBI Sees No Racism Motive In Atlanta Spa Shootings, Despite Media/Democrat Claims Otherwise

The FBI statement is consistent with the Atlanta Police initial statement, yet claims that the incident is an anti-Asian hate crime are being pushed by the media and Democrats for political gain.

Earlier this week, Mary reported on the Atlanta spa shootings. Atlanta police reported at that time that the shootings were not race-related, but the media unleashed an avalanche of articles claiming, without facts or evidence, that the shootings were indeed race-related (and also misogynist. And stuff.)

The FBI has now officially backed the initial Atlanta PD assessment and stated that the Atlanta spa shootings do “not appear to be racially motivated.”

Forbes reports:

FBI Director Christopher Wray told NPR Tuesday’s Atlanta-area shootings that killed eight people — six of whom were Asian-American — do not seem to be linked to race, backing up local police who say the alleged shooter was probably motivated by a sex addiction rather than racial animus, a theory that’s drawn skepticism and pushback from some corners.

Of course this FBI finding has “drawn skepticism and pushback from some corners.”  It has done so in leftist media corners in which today’s anti-white elements dwell.  In their myopic, narrow little world, there is only one reason anything ever happens: race hate. We can toss in all the other sects in the leftist intersectional buffet of resentment and victimhood, but at rock bottom, race is the “new” class in their cultural Marxist revolution.  It’s the reason for everything since the dawn of time and will always be the driving force for everything . . . if they have anything to say about it.

The left used to be enamored of ‘sex addiction,’ it was a wonderful way for perverts and criminals to have their acts excused, apologized for, vindicated, even validated.  They were victims, you see, of something beyond their control (unlike white people who have complete control over how white they are and need training to learn how to be “less white”).

No more, that explanation offered up by the Atlanta spa shooter himself was pooh-poohed away as white supremacist fantasy masking white privilege wrapped in anti-Asian hate spurred by fear of the Wuhan coronavirus.  If that sounds nutty to you, don’t worry, you’re not wrong. It is supremely nutty.

The radical left has gone all-in on its illogical, inhumane, and cruel ‘anti-racism’ theory; intentionally racist—with the ‘noble’ goal of singling out white people for punishment over perceived ‘white’ historical and contemporary wrongs—Critical Race Theory requires the subjugation and oppression of white people to achieve ‘justice.’  Racist hate drives this bizarre leftist war on racist hate.

Andrew Sullivan has a great piece at his substack about this narrative not just trumping but actually replacing the news: “When The Narrative Replaces The News: How the media grotesquely distorted the Atlanta massacres.”

We have yet to find any credible evidence of anti-Asian hatred or bigotry in this man’s history. Maybe we will. We can’t rule it out. But we do know that his roommates say they once asked him if he picked the spas for sex because the women were Asian. And they say he denied it, saying he thought those spas were just the safest way to have quick sex. That needs to be checked out more. But the only piece of evidence about possible anti-Asian bias points away, not toward it.

And yet. Well, you know what’s coming. Accompanying one original piece on the known facts, the NYT ran nine — nine! — separate stories about the incident as part of the narrative that this was an anti-Asian hate crime, fueled by white supremacy and/or misogyny. Not to be outdone, the WaPo ran sixteen separate stories on the incident as an antiAsian white supremacist hate crimeSixteen! One story for the facts; sixteen stories on how critical race theory would interpret the event regardless of the facts. For good measure, one of their columnists denounced reporting of law enforcement’s version of events in the newspaper, because it distracted attention from the “real” motives. Today, the NYT ran yet another full-on critical theory piece disguised as news on how these murders are proof of structural racism and sexism — because some activists say they are.

. . . . None of them mentioned that he killed two white people as well — a weird thing for a white supremacist to do — and injured a Latino. None pointed out that the connection between the spas was that the killer had visited them. None explained why, if he were associating Asian people with Covid19, he would nonetheless expose himself to the virus by having sex with them, or regard these spas as “safer” than other ways to have quick sex.

They didn’t because, in their worldview, they didn’t need to. What you see here is social justice ideology insisting, as Dean Baquet temporarily explained, that intent doesn’t matter. What matters is impact. The individual killer is in some ways irrelevant. His intentions are not material. He is merely a vehicle for the structural oppressive forces critical theorists believe in. And this “story” is what the media elites decided to concentrate on: the thing that, so far as we know, didn’t happen.

. . . . The media is supposed to subject easy, convenient rush-to-judgment narratives to ruthless empirical testing. Now, for purely ideological reasons, they are rushing to promote ready-made narratives, which actually point away from the empirical facts. To run sixteen separate pieces on anti-Asian white supremacist misogynist hate based on one possibly completely unrelated incident is not journalism. It’s fanning irrational fear in the cause of ideological indoctrination. And it appears to be where all elite media is headed.

How long will Americans continue to indulge these destructive, racist attacks on America?

Surprised the FBI didn’t just mouth they are looking at that angle but some excuse it could be they don’t know instead they did their job and shut that Leftist talking point down.
They have been the Democrats Law enforcement agency for last 10 years.

But of course the Democrats, and the Biden Administration in particular, has an investment in making Asian racial animus as a replacement for the goodwill they lost when the Biden DOJ dropped the discrimination lawsuit last month against Yale brought by Trump administration over discrimination against Asian American and white undergraduate applicants.

    Yeah, I kind of see this as a cynical ploy, too. But it’s a stupid one. Asian-Americans know they are most discriminated against and held back academically and professionally by the left, even more than whites. That’s racist, and Asian-Americans recognize it for what it is.

    Their current day at the top of the intersectional heap status is about to sundown once they fail to own the right; the left could give a crap less about Asian-Americans (whom they view as, in many ways, better, smarter, more driven than whites). This is bad to them; they can’t control smart, driven people; they can only control victims. They prefer to embrace races they see as lazy and useless and needy, and they want to keep them that way. It’s disgusting, inhumane, and pure evil, but that is today’s Democrat Party in a nutshell: disgusting, inhumnae, and pure evil.

      So much yes to this.

      I agree with everything you just said but I’m afraid I am extremely black pilled about this and wondering if there is any reason to think the Democrats will ever lose their stranglehold over culture (which ultimately is why their dehumanizing intersectionality is able to work)?

        In 1973, presidential candidate Harry Browne wrote a reasonably inspirational book called How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World. Its thesis is not complicated: while it’s nice to be an activist and increase everybody’s freedom, in cases where that is impossible, it’s perfectly acceptable to concentrate on enhancing freedom in your own life, provided it isn’t at the expense of anyone else’s. Because if everybody does the same thing, the result is surprisingly similar.

        Don’t forget — Rule of Law protects them from us, as much as it protects us from them. They can dismantle the First, Second, Fourth, and even Fifth, but they can’t dismantle the Law of Unintended Consequences.

        I am of two minds about this. One, the pendulum tends to swing back (see: President Donald Trump), so I expect backlash to the far left lurch of the Harris-with Biden, too, admin. And two, the left has been doggedly pursuing the destruction of America for over a century, while the right, when it bothers to organize at all (see Tea Party circa 2009, MAGA circa 2016), tends to get discouraged and give up after an election cycle or two. We need more stick-to-itivenss on our side. You don’t retake a country in two, four, six, etc. years. It’s taken the commie left over a century to get this far, and part of their psy-ops that has most debilitated an America First response is that there is a “uniParty,” that the GOP is actually just working for the leftist agenda. This works in two ways: obviously, it angers people on the right and–importantly–directs that ire to their own side, and two, it makes the fight seem “fixed” and therefore unwinnable.

        Any maroon can look at what the GOP does when in and out of power and see that they are not the ones advocating the Green New Deal, “free” everything for everyone, and the myriad anti-American, anti-Constitution BS the left pushes, but for some reason, we buy into the myth that there is a “uniparty.” Are there slimeball losers among the GOP, oh yes, yes indeed. But instead of working to replace them, even in purple areas with less squishy progressive loons (maybe even a centrist rather than a progressive Republican), we see an election cycle or two and then throw up our hands and say, “it can’t be done!”. We are defeated, we lost . . . not to the left, but to the nefarious right RINO establishment. We can’t take over the GOP because we haven’t already, we lament.

        Trump wants to do just that, though, and I am hopeful that with his leadership, we can make some actual strides. Of course we can never install a Constitutional conservative in deep blue states, but what we can do is get someone who is NOT a progressive Republican elected there. That’s a start.

        Impatient calls for disastrous civil wars and / or secession are not the answer. If we had stuck to our guns from 2009 onwards, we would be in a great position of strength now, but we didn’t. We just peeled away and gave up. The left never ever gives up, they keep plowing their commie way “forward,” and every time we step back in despair that we haven’t won every single seat we ran for, we give them more wins. We want quick, easy solutions, but we have not found ourselves in this mess in one fell swoop, and we won’t get out of it in one, either.

        As always, just my two cents, that and $6 will buy you a gallon of gas next year in Harris-Biden’s America.

          “Any maroon can look at what the GOP does when in and out of power and see that they are not the ones advocating the Green New Deal, “free” everything for everyone, and the myriad anti-American, anti-Constitution BS the left pushes, but for some reason, we buy into the myth that there is a “uniparty.”

          One of the oldest political jokes I remember hearing (from my lifetime, meaning not counting Twain or Mencken) is this: if the Democrats filed a bill to burn down the Library of Congress, the Republicans would declare it unacceptable unless the arson was phased in over five years.

          Myths don’t persist for a half century without having some validity behind them.

          “[Republicans] are not the ones advocating [Obamacare, note substitution], “free” everything for everyone, and the myriad anti-American, anti-Constitution BS the left pushes,” but during unlikely periods when they actually end up owning the government, they don’t do a damn thing to repeal any of them, despite years of explicit campaign promises to do exactly that. Contrast this to Manic Joe, who stayed up nights signing EO after EO to repeal every possible thing that his predecessor did.

          OK, I lied, he didn’t stay up nights, and took frequent naps. But he achieved more for his party in 45 days than our entire Republican delegation managed in two years.

I wouldn’t take Wray’s word that the sun rises in the East.

    Indeed. “Confirmation from the FBI” of what one already thinks makes one all warm and fuzzy, but I no longer put any more stock in it than I would “confirmation from Russia Today.”

If the shooter had been black I could have accepted the idea that perhaps it was a racial attack against Asians. Because in my very limited experience it seems that the only place significant animus against Asians is found is among black people. In particular, the only person I have ever seen blaming Asian-looking people in public for the Wuhan virus was black. Now I realize that extrapolating from a sample size of one is stupid, but I also don’t recall hearing of any racially motivated crimes against Asians by people who weren’t black. So that’s a sample size of zero.

    Oh you have that backwards, you rayciss. According to the Huffington Post, the shoe is worn by the other foot.

    Racial minorities can be and often are racist against other racial minorities ― and in many Asian American families, anti-Blackness sentiment runs deep.

    And with absolutely no basis in real life experience, of course. CRT’s own Yellow Peril.

      rangerrebew in reply to henrybowman. | March 22, 2021 at 10:31 am

      As I remember it, I believe democrats have offered the proposition that minorities can’t be racist against other minorities and the majority.

Serious question. Can someone tell me why the FBI was playing in this sandbox at all? From the beginning of this there was no indication there was a racial or “hate crime” component to these killings. Some crazy wanker blames massage parlors in general for his sex addiction and he started started shooting the place up. Where is the federal crime that warrants FBI involvement?

    henrybowman in reply to Idonttweet. | March 21, 2021 at 5:05 pm

    Guns.
    Guns are always federal.
    Whether or not there is any basis in reality.
    Like the Gun-Free School Zones Act claims. Some part of some of the ore that some gun was made from probably crossed state lines; and the threat of school terrorism anywhere is a threat of terrorism everywhere; so interstate commerce, Patriot Act, and shut up.
    Just like nooses.

    The FBI is “woke” now. It’s truly disheartening, but they are lost to us. There is no non-partisan (i.e. non-Democrat commie cheerleading) element of the federal government anymore. They are all all-in with the commies. It’s sad, but it is what it is.

“…Atlanta spa shootings do “not appear to be racially motivated.”

Passive dreck that allows the media narrative to steamroll over the FIB and Atlanta PD.

Good grief. Grow a pair of brass ones and speak plainly: This nut wad was a sex addict who blamed his victims for his addiction. He shot up a whore house, plain and simple. These places are ubiquitous; a systematic Chinese whore house cabal masquerading as strip mall ‘health’ business to conceal Chinese human trafficking into the USA. If these places were run by Lithuanians, then this nut wad’s victims would’ve been Lithuanian. ‘Asian’ got nuthin’ to do with it. You’re being played. He shot up a whore house. The Mexicans use a similar ubiquitous, systematic cabal masquerading as restaurants to conceal Mexico’s trafficking of illegals into the USA. A different appetite, to be sure, but same concept.

FBI Sees No Racism Motive …

That is the problem .. the FBI is blind

    No, the FBI is not blind. It is simply no longer a non-partisan LE body; it is the enforcement body of the commie deep state. We know this. Time to accept it.
