Yesterday, we heard the awful news that a white mentally disabled man was kidnapped, tortured, and verbally abused by a group of black assailants shouting “fuck Donald Trump” and “fuck white people”.
Another lovely display of liberal tolerance.
You can probably imagine how the media would have reacted if Trump supporters had been the perpetrators of this unconscionable crime. The internet would have exploded in 30 seconds. Congress would be involved. Liberals would be screaming from the rooftops (hell, they already are) that Trump should be impeached before he even takes office.
Want to know what actually happened?
Liberal networks started throwing nutjobs on the air to downplay the vicious attack and try to make the argument it wasn’t a hate crime.
You knew the second this story broke that the left was going to take the side of the violent thugs and blame Donald Trump for what happened to this poor guy.
That’s exactly what we immediately saw…
From The Daily Caller:
During a panel discussion on CNN Wednesday night, Syone Sanders blamed an unlikely source for the kidnapping of a white, Chicago man who was mentally disabled.
For some reason, Sanders accused Donald Trump for forcing the four black assailants to torture their victim and record it, all while screaming, “fuck Donald Trump! Fuck white people!”
This is why we can’t have nice things.
Don Lemon said it was just “bad home training”.
NBC said they weren’t “trying to be criminals“.
And where’s the president on this one?
You think he would be silent if a group of white Trump supporters did this to a black man?
Remember when he said Trayvon could have been his son? What about this time?
The crime happened in the president’s backyard for crying out loud.
For a minute there it looked like the police weren’t going to do the right thing and classify this as a hate crime but that changed today thanks to public pressure.
The media owns this.
By lazily and nefariously using false charges of racism and bigotry to make their arguments rather than talking about policy they have created this climate where these acts of violence are totally acceptable to uninformed young people.
If you need me I’ll be over here waiting for Obama’s press conference condemning this.
Oh, and don’t think for one second this is an isolated incident either. Trump supporters are getting attacked all across the country.
UPDATE: Here’s Obama’s tepid and generic response. He made sure to point out that it isn’t his fault.
Here’s Obama’s spokesperson saying it’s too early to tell if this was a hate crime. Facepalm.
