Leftists Rush To Delete Tweets Blaming “Whites” For Boulder Shooting Once Identity Of Perp Revealed
Shooter Was Trump-hating Muslim Syrian Immigrant, Contrary To Narrative That Trended On Twitter Yesterday.
Anytime America has a mass shooting, Democrats and their allies in the MSM will rush to assign blame to Republicans before the name of a single victim is known and well before the public has been informed about who the alleged perp or perpetrators are in these heinous crimes.
We saw it just last week when the Usual Suspects immediately blamed former President Trump for the horrific attacks at three Georgia massage parlors, which left eight dead, including six people of Asian descent. At present, we’re supposed to believe that Trump reminding people that the coronavirus came from China motivated the shooter, even though as of this writing, there has been no evidence whatsoever presented that points in that direction.
We also saw it yesterday as media reports began to surface on Twitter about a mass shooting at a Soopers grocery store in Boulder, CO. 10 were murdered, including a veteran police officer. But before anyone had any concrete information on the suspect or the victims, woke leftists were again rushing to proclaim that white supremacy was behind the attacks, especially after seeing video and images of the then-unnamed suspect in news reports.
One of the most high-profile public figures to do so was Vice President Kamala Harris’s niece Meena because rushing to judgment runs in the family. In a since-deleted tweet, Ms. Harris wrote that “the Atlanta shooting was not even a week ago. Violent white men are the greatest terrorist threat to our country”:

Fast forward a few hours, and police have now given the public the suspect’s name: Ahmad Al-Issa, a Syrian-American, according to numerous news reports.
This person doesn’t neatly fit the profile prominent leftists like Meena Harris were expecting. Naturally, many of the same people who predictably jump to conclusions are now either deleting tweets and/or providing predictable “updates” on their original claims. Note that some of them are still clinging to their racist narratives much in the way a freezing Jack desperately clung to that door alongside Rose as they floated aimlessly in “Titanic”:
I deleted a previous tweet about the suspect in the Boulder shooting. I made an assumption based on his being taken into custody alive and the fact that the majority of mass shootings in the U.S. are carried out by white men.

Twitter user Majid Padellan aka “Brooklyn Dad,” a prolific tweeter with over 900,000 followers and who was recently accused of being paid $57,000 in PAC money for pro-Biden posts, tweeted this yesterday:
Domestic white terrorists, like the one in Boulder, continue to be the biggest threat to America.
And they still apprehend them SAFELY.
— BrooklynDad_Defiant! (@mmpadellan) March 22, 2021
He hasn’t deleted his tweet, but a day later, we now have an “it didn’t matter what the shooter’s race was” tweet because, of course, we do:
It doesn't matter whether the shooter is a white guy, a Middle Eastern guy or whatever ethnicity.
HE IS A MASS MURDERER.
— BrooklynDad_Defiant! (@mmpadellan) March 23, 2021
It’s unclear if Deadspin editor Julie DiCaro’s tweets from yesterday are still up because she now has her Twitter account set to “protected” status. Here’s her Monday conversation with a USA Today editor about the deadly Boulder rampage:

What makes this one even more ironic is that the shooter posted to his FB about needing a girlfriend. pic.twitter.com/dptSsk8bzd

Hateful leftist pastor Talbert Swan (who frequently refers to his non-POC critics as “mayonnaise drippers“) joined in on the “blame the white guy” festivities Monday as well:
The white man in handcuffs just murdered 10 people at a Boulder, Colorado supermarket.
Emantic Bradford was murdered by a cop at a mall in Hoover, Alabama after he directed shoppers to safety during an active shooting. The officer who murdered him was never charged.

Here was his update today:
MUSLIM ≠ Not White
JEWISH ≠ Not Black
— Bishop Talbert Swan (@TalbertSwan) March 23, 2021
Prominent feminist Amy Siskind had this to say yesterday in response to the shootings:
The shooter is was taken into custody.
In other words it was almost certainly a white man (again). If he were Black or Brown he would be dead.

And yet today:
His name does not determine skin color. Nor does his religion. His skin appears white, and by the numbers the vast majority of mass shooters are committed by white men. https://t.co/Y9nxutZhCo pic.twitter.com/j0ECkQPwFy

Another tweeter who jumped on the bandwagon posted this hot take yesterday:
Suspect in Boulder – NOT ANTIFA, BLM, MUSLIM – it’s a WHITE MALE!!!!
When is our society going to learn ?
— ?☮️? (@RedNFeistie) March 22, 2021
Here’s her update:
My apologies to the many, many, many angry white men who tweeted me and/ or sent me private messages. The shooter in Boulder was Muslim. I was wrong!
This does not erase the fact that:
A: Majority of mass shooters in America are white men
B: We have a gun problem in America

We have more, as seen below and via Twitter user Caleb Hull, who documented them extensively in a Twitter thread.
Ahmad Al-Issa. That’s it. That’s the tweet.
Be prepared for the barrage of “not all Arabs are terrorists” tweets from the people below: #Boulder pic.twitter.com/bz4iERczCn

Twitter, of course, played an active role in the spread of misinformation:
#BlueAnon conspiracy theory currently allowed to be on top trending on Twitter spreading misinformation that the perpetrator in the Boulder shooting is white
How does @TwitterSupport allow fake news to be spread so freely on their platform? https://t.co/Dr4FSM3LYf pic.twitter.com/oOrco8c1yH

Sadly, the Boulder mass shooting won’t be the last one that happens in our lifetimes, nor will the rushes to judgment we so often see from the “tolerant left” when these tragic incidents occur. It’s a page out of a political playbook that goes back centuries: Have many people say something untruthful so loudly and so often that the masses start to believe it.
And then, after deliberately misleading people and instilling panic, quickly craft government policy from it – even if it means taking a match to the U.S. Constitution in the process. It’s sickening, but it’s just who they are.

This will go down the memory hole faster than you can blink.
Predict that he doesn’t see a trial until after the 2022 election, most likely the 2024 election.
Diversity dogma (i.e. color judgments), not limited to racism, breeds adversity… and is self-incriminating. #HateLovesAbortion
The whole the shooter would be dead if he was black is such a garbage argument.
Whether we agree or not on why someone lands in jail/prison there are tens of thousands of black men who’ve been taken into custody, alive, by the police. That includes black men who’ve gone on killing sprees killing multiple people and even the ones that have shot at police.
This is one argument the left makes that is proving the most difficult to end. You can’t get through to these people like Sisken or Swan.
Case-in-point: the shoot to kill order of an unarmed women, was elective abortion (i.e. clear a “burden”), not self-defense.
Also, the old guy aborted in the middle of Nowhere, Oregon, following Occupy the empty building.
Rico Marley went into an Atlanta grocery store with 5 guns and body armor today. He wasn’t white either and the cops arrested him without any shots fired. These talking heads are silent about the majority of crimes which are committed by 6% of the population. Forget about Chicago. Just look at all the anti-Asian hate crimes committed by non-whites. NYpost has articles and photos of the attackers almost every day. Another one happened in San Francisco today, someone snapped a few photos of the culprits that robbed an Asian woman and then dragged her when the car drove off.
The tolerant left is a Rainbow of inclusive exclusion (i.e. black, brown, and featuring a gay ecstasy in the shredded remains of white). They need to lose their Pro-Choice religion. Demos-cracy is aborted at the Twilight Fringe.
That said, the next pride parade should feature lions, lionesses, and their [unPlanned] cubs frolicking in gay abandon.
The “tell” was that we weren’t immediately told that he was a white guy wearing a MAGA hat. Had he been, we would have known before they had him loaded up.
When they don’t immediately ID race/ethnicity it means the perp isn’t white, Christian, heterosexual male.
Amy Siskind is so colossally stupid, or ignorant of basic math, the she doesn’t even realize she posted data that shows that whites commit mass shootings at just about their expected rate based on % of the population. Her numbers…Of the 110 mass shooting since 1982, 66 were committed by Whites or exactly 60%, 21 by Blacks or 19% so Blacks commit about 50% more mass shootings than would be predicted by their % of the total US population.
Well done Amy.
Sir—thanks for that ‘catch’—my goodness, it’s EXTREMELY telling. You’re correct in your math! What’s ‘telling’ about this moron’s (Amy Siskind)’s narrative is that neither logic, nor truth, play a part in the day-to-day lives of these Leftest cockroaches. And even when they appear to concede error, they spin their concessions into a “I may have been incorrect—but I wasn’t wrong” conclusion. I might have had pity for these unprincipled Leftest Toiletbugs, chalking up their stupidity to—stupidity, moral blindness, bad breeding, weakness of character due to the zeitgeist—were it not for their galactic-level of hypocrisy!
According to Siskind the majority of mass shooters are committed by White men, but her stats are interesting:
66 White – 55.5% | 76.5% of population
21 Black – 17.5% | 13.5% of population
10 Latino – 8.5% | 18.5% of population but considered ethnic NOT race.
8 Asian – 6.5% | 6% of population
5 Other – 4%
9 Unknown – 7.5%
119 Total – 100%
Now I don’t know where she got her stats from – they seem weirdly low, but if accurate Whites are disproportionately rare as mass shooters while Blacks are disproportionately high. Latinos are even rarer than Whites – proportionately speaking, however this could be a stats issue – race v ethnic classification. Other and Unknown would have an impact, but the only thing certain from Siskind’s figures is that Black men with guns are all too often mass shooters, which is not what she tried to argue. Facts v narrative?
You can’t point out deeper critical analysis that debunks an SJW on a roll because shutup you racist!
Numbers don’t lie- but liars can misrepresent them. Liberals use raw numbers when they think it proves their point, or percentages if they think that’s what does it.
Like covid numbers. Always presented in a way to scare you.
Math schmath. They don’t care a tinker’s dam about the actual numbers and percentages.
Twitter is even worse than this. Among the riff raff, there are all too many hot takes unwilling to check their lib privilege of getting away with propaganda and blatant lies without fear of firing, canceling, etc.
The “he’s still light skinned” is one of them but not even the worse. With absolutely zero self-reflection, many are harping on how “now the right will take notice and suddenly care because they can be free to be racist”. No, the right waited for facts…you jumped to conclusions and are backpedaling, assholes!
1. It wasn’t a white man,
1a. but it could have been.
2. If it could have been then
2a. for teaching purposes it may as well have been.
3. If it may as well have been then
3a. let’s just proceed as though it was.
Because even if it wasn’t, white men deserve whatever they get.
They deserve whatever they get because they’re all racist (even if they can’t help it or don’t know it).
They deserve whatever they get because they all hate women (even if they can’t help it or don’t know it.
White men are always deserving of hate.
–> That’s “logic” (or is it a “different way of knowing”?) per intersectional dogma. And no, they don’t want to talk about it: why talk, when you’re convinced you already possess The Truth?
Mass shootings:rare.Daily shootings:common,and overwhelmingly black.Ask anyone in Chicago,Detroit,Baltimore,etc.
The most and biggest mass murderers of all time is still The Government. No one has even come close to what a government will do to an unarmed population.
And black males commit most of the mass shootings … It’s not even close
You’re confusing victims-per-incident with victims-per-perp.
Why does victims-per-perp matter? A mass shooting shouldn’t be defined as having a single perpetrator. If that’s what the government is doing to avoid classifying gang killings as mass shootings they’re being terribly dishonest.
No, a mass shooting is in fact victims-per-incident. Victims-per-perp is more likely to be the category in which black males excel, not victims-per-incident.
See my other comment about “40 Parkland shootings per year” (just entered) for clarification.
The only way you get “the majority of mass shooters are white men” is if you dishonestly classify gang shootings as something else.
Most gang shootings don’t take place in confined areas of high target density, nor are they as systematic as planned mass shootings. Therefore there’s far less chance of a gang shooting also being a mass shooting, and an obviously high chance of a mass shooting when someone picks his operational target area (confined area, high target density) with the intent of producing a mass shooting.
No, you just play with the number of people who died in each incident, until you find the number that proves your point this week, then you say that those are mass shootings and others aren’t.
The Big Lie is that the police treat white criminals more gently than black ones. That white criminals are arrested alive, while black ones who do the same things are shot. It’s simply not true. Criminals of all colors who allow themselves to be taken peacefully are not harmed; those who resist arrest are taken by force, and those who resist with deadly force are met with deadly force. It’s really very simple.
We saw the same thing with the ridiculous claim, by no less than Slow Joe himself, that the Jan 6 rioters were not gassed or shot because they were white, while BLM were because they were black. That just flat out wasn’t true. The Jan 6 rioters were treated exactly like BLM were.
But we see the same thing on our side too, even here on LI, with fanciful claims when, e.g., a Christian does something, that “had he been Moslem he’d have been treated differently”. Such claims are every bit as counterfactual as this one.
Its a complex area, id suggest that the data suggests an issue. Id also suggest that there isn’t enough data for your supposition that the reason for said issue is resisting arrest.
144 Shootings in Chicago in February and 31 deaths. Non of the social media provocateurs above cared enough to mention.
Nearly every week in Chicago, (if things are unusually slow, then definitely within two weeks) black thug violence clams more lives than the Parkland shooting. That’s over 40 Parkland shootings every year, in Chicago alone.
As Milton Friedman taught the IRS, people are much less likely to push back against oppression suffered in smaller installments, than they are when it occurs in one big balloon payment.
Domestic white liberals….continue to be the greatest threat to America.
There; fixed it for BrooklynDad
I thought I read that he was wearing body armor. Kind of hard to die from center mass gunshot wounds with that on.
Now that we know he isn’t white, the left moves from “white supremacy” to gun control.
The Party against “islamoph obia” is now letting that creep into their narrstive. Someone mentioned that a person videoing the attack sounded ME. Is the shooters FBI known associate the one who planned this attack?
I especially loved the “correction”: “Majority of mass shooters in America are white men” Does she even know that the vast majority of men in America are white? Can she even begin to understand the old, insightful aphorism: there are lies, damned lies, and statistics… Whites are actually LESS likely – statistically – to do mass shooting than others. And then there’s the Mohammedan mass stabbing & bombing thing… but that not PC to note.
Then there was the guy who responded to her that there are far more deaths due to drunk drivers. So we should ban cars. Pretty funny. Pitifully accurate reflection on what the focus has become.
And then there’s the whole notion that it’s fine to attack white males, but it is VERBOTEN to bring up the gender, ethnicity, religion, etc. of non-dominant (their perception) groups. Except, of course, if you want to slander Jews.
Article on Breitbart today about Michael Moore ( aka Fat Man Talking) saying the shooter was as American as American Pie.
Give the Joe & Ho Show two more years, and the left won’t even be bothering to delete those clearly erroneous tweets. And (of course) don’t expect Jack to do it for them.
One thing I’ll say about Meena Harris: she’s sure got that soylent grin down pat.
