Colorado shooting — because of the raaaaacism! [Darleen Click]
Yep, the usual Leftists see fit to take the singular act of evil committed in Colorado and shoehorn their own shibboleths into it:
Of all the political angles that might be played in connection with the Aurora theater shooting, surely racism would be a card too far, right?
Wrong. Subbing for Ed Schultz on MSNBC tonight, Michael Eric Dyson managed to suggest that James Holmes would have attracted the attention of the authorities earlier had he been, yup, “a Muslim or another minority.”
MICHAEL ERIC DYSON: You know, what strikes me here of course [Ed.: of course!], is that when you hear the epithets being hurled on either side about politicization of this issue, we know at the end of the day if that kind of amassing and stockpiling of that kind of, you know, potential to hurt people through that, you know, those bullets and those guns and the gasses and the bombs and the like, if this had been stockpiled by a person who was more likely to look reasonably offensive: a Muslim or another minority, do you think that the red flag would have gone up sooner than with this seemingly innocent young white man, who under cover and protection of appearing normal, was out to do some heinous deeds.
Not to be left out, our own Miss Mandy, Twit of the Day, takes a cue from Precious Ezra Klein — that somehow any history over 100 years old doesn’t exist outside of what stories she can invent …
The Koskiddies make this about, I kid you not, White Male Privilege
The freedom to kill, maim, commit wanton acts of violence, and to be anti-social (as well as pathological) without having your actions reflect on your own racial group, is one of the ultimate, if not in fact most potent, examples of White Privilege in post civil rights era America. Instead of a national conversation where we reflect on what has gone wrong with young white men in our society–a group which apparently possesses a high propensity for committing acts of mass violence–James Holmes will be framed as an outlier.
For a hammer, everything is a nail — and certainly these headcases aren’t filled with brains.
