Following the mass shooting at two Asian massage parlors in Georgia, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris leaped into action. No, they didn’t actually do anything. But they did seize upon the opportunity to paint Americans as racists and xenophobes.
Recently, a Georgia man murdered eight people at a pair of Asian massage parlors in an attempt to “eliminate” the “temptation” posed by an alleged sex addiction. The massacre began at Young’s Asian Massage in Cherokee County, where four were killed and one was wounded. Next, he headed to Gold Massage Spa in Atlanta, where he murdered four more. The shooter was onto a pornography-related business when he was caught by police, who say it was likely “there would have been more victims.” The shooter is clearly mentally ill, but Democrats and the media have chosen to make this, inexplicably, about racism and other buzzwords.
“Racism is a real in America. And it has always been. Xenophobia is real in America and always has been,” Kamala Harris said in a speech in Georgia while attempting to smear President Trump and American citizens. “The last year we’ve had people in positions of incredible power scapegoating Asian Americans. People with the biggest pulpits spreading this kind of hate.” Harris even brought up World War II-era Japanese internment camps, which a Democrat President built and operated. ABC News reports:
Harris used her brief remarks to highlight the long history of racism in the U.S., specifically noting internment camps for Japanese Americans in the 1940s and the perception of Muslims in America after the Sept. 11 attacks.
A source close to the investigation says the murders were not motivated by racism, but were a “targeted attack driven by personal grievance.” Nevertheless, Biden says that “whatever the motivation,” the real problem here is not mental health — but racism.
“Whatever the motivation, we know this: Too many Asian Americans have been walking up and down the streets and worrying, waking up each morning the past year feeling their safety and the safety of their loved ones are at stake,” Biden says.
Are Americans, as Biden and Harris claim, a bunch of racist xenophobes? Is this shooting, as they claim, evidence of this? Not one single shred of information indicates that the attacks were motivated by race. The shooter says they weren’t. He was very detailed about his motivations. The official report confirms this. But Democrats will never miss an opportunity to race-bait.
