The “resistance” of the radical left aren’t pulling any punches in their fight to pin a mass shooting in El Paso, Texas on Donald Trump.
With political violence becoming a part of daily life here in the United States, the mainstream media is staying afloat by turning us on one another. You can be either Team A or Team B only, and you lose personal value for the times in which you try to compromise with the other side. It’s an absurd system that needs a major overhaul to remain in working order, and it results in some spectacularly hyperbolic volleys of verbiage.
Such is the case today, with the left doing their damndest to equate Donald Trump’s alleged racism with mass murder.
Beto O’Rourke, an El Paso native, was particularly demonstrable during an appearance on MSNBC.

“I mean the president has not been shy. He’s not been saying this behind closed doors. This is out in the open. All people of one religion, inherently defective … should be banned from the shores of this country,” O’Rourke said on MSNBC. “The only modern Western democracy… that said anything close to this is the Third Reich, Nazi Germany.”
O’Rourke said Trump makes people “subhuman” and his “open racism” invites additional violence. The former Texas congressman then noted that media members are contributing to what he considers an ongoing issue in America.
Then came the kicker.
“‘Hey, Beto, do you think the president is racist?’ O’Rourke said, mimicking a media member.
“Well, Jesus Christ, of course he’s racist! He’s been racist from Day 1,” O’Rourke said. “He’s trafficked in this stuff from the very beginning.”
The President has repeatedly condemned racists, bigots, and white nationalists, and did so again in the aftermath of the shooting.
