After the tragic shooting in a Boulder grocery store, the racist illogic reared its head. “It’s always an angry white man. always,” tweeted a “race and inclusion editor” at USA Today. A senior editor at Deadspin tweeted: “Extremely tired of people’s lives depending on whether a white man with an AR-15 is having a good day or not.” Kamala Harris’s niece, Meena, offered: “violent white men are the greatest terrorist threat to our country.”
THREAD: Here are all the idiotic leftists who immediately jumped to politicize the tragic Boulder shooting to push their narrative, only for it all to fall apart when it turns out the shooter is muslim…

It turns out the suspected shooter wasn’t white. The suspect’s name is Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa. And the fact that he is alleged to have carried out a mass shooting should not surprise us: If you look at the data on the ethnic composition of mass shooters they reflect, roughly, the ethnic composition of the American population. But given the rules of this ideology — that the importance of the lives lost depends on the group characteristics of the perpetrator — you can bet that the mainstream press will now pivot to a different story.
What is really strange is the fact that Hemal Jhaveri, the race and inclusion editor for one of USA Today’s sports sites, was fired over the tweet she wrote.
This is strange given the fact that she comes from mainstream media and we all know their stance on these situations.
Her excuse is that the alt/right bullied USA Today into firing her.
She accused USA Today of repeatedly taking issue with reporters who “publicly nam[ed] whiteness as a defining problem” and of letting white reporters off the hook for worse transgressions. She detailed racist micro-aggressions previously directed at her by colleagues. “So many newsrooms claim to value diverse voices, yet when it comes to backing them up, or looking deeper into how white supremacy permeates their own newsrooms, they quickly retreat,” she wrote.
And the snake eats its own tail.
