(NationalSentinel) Well, that didn’t take long.
Even before bodies have been identified and all families notified, Democratic presidential contenders Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke have blamed the El Paso shootings on our resident racist-in-chief, President Donald Trump.
Not the shooter — the president. Because ‘racism.’ Or something like that.
Cue loaded question from a reporter. Speaking in El Paso late Saturday, O’Rourke, who lives in El Paso and who used to represent the city as a congressman, was asked if responsibility “falls at the feet of [Trump] and his rhetoric and … alleged racist tweets.”
“Yes,” O’Rourke replied.
“We’ve had a rise in hate crimes every single one of the last three years during an administration where you’ve had a president who’s called Mexicans ‘rapists’ and ‘criminals,’ though Mexican immigrants commit crimes at a far lower rate than those born here in the country,” O’Rourke added. “He has tried to make us afraid of them.”
Questions for Beto: Then how come U.S prisons are full of criminals who are Mexican nationals? Is border enforcement “racist?” Even if Mexican immigrants “commit crimes at a far lower rate” than American citizens, are you implying there is there an acceptable number of crimes illegal aliens can commit?
“He is a racist and he stokes racism in this country, and it does not offend our sensibilities, it fundamentally changes the character of this country and it leads to violence,” O’Rourke continued.
This is a flat-out lie, but hey, Beto, you be you. How’s that presidential bid working out?
Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders was trolling as well. He followed up O’Rourke’s “Racist!!!” schtick with jabs at a usual suspect: The NRA, another entity least responsible for what happened in El Paso.
“After each of these tragedies the U.S. Senate, intimidated by the power of the NRA, does nothing. This has got to change,” Bernie thundered.
“We need a president and a Congress that listen to the American people, not the ideology of a right-wing extremist organization. The time is long overdue for Congress to stand up to the NRA and pass the common-sense gun safety legislation the American people want,” he said.
Mind you, to a Leftie commie like Bernie, there is no “common-sense gun control” only “gun control,” as in, the government has and controls all the guns.
These sickening individuals, as we noted earlier, are what’s wrong with America, not Donald Trump. Their garbage Left-wing ideology has ravaged our culture, destroyed traditional norms of behavior and social mores, leading to just the sort of violence we see on a regular basis now.
We don’t have a “gun” problem or a “racist president” problem. We have a cultural problem and a “Democrat” problem.
