Last week a waste of human skin with the unlikely named of Dylann Storm Roof walked into an historically black church in SC and opened fire. When he was finished 9 people were dead. While many things are still unclear about the atrocity, it does seem pretty clear that Roof's primary motivation was racial hate. Predictable, the left has reacted with reasoned calls not to overreact to the actions of one lone lunatic, reminding us that we must remember that Roof is representative of no one except Roof.I disagree in part. They don't demand all white folks answer for Roof, only the Republican whites, preferably presidential candidates (Republican blacks are free to answer, but they will be ignored in any event).
Wait, what am I saying? Roof isn't Muslim. No, the left immediately went into full hue and cry demanding that all white folks must answer for Roof's cowardly act. None of this is new, the left always goes back, like a dog returns to his vomit, to identity politics. Group A, Group B, fight, fight fight. It's a long, boring, endless tale of persecution and victims, over and over again ad nauseam . It seems to be all they have, it seems to be all they know, and they stick to it even when they look foolish as they do when a man who attacks an IRS office turns out to be left wing, not right. Or when a mass murder turns out to have a lot in common with Che, not Cruz. You'd think they'd learn, but they never seem to, so the question becomes why. . .
As they say, read the rest.
