It’s amazing how quiet the chanting from the left has gotten since copies of the Buffalo shooters manifesto made the streets. At least, for the moment..

The usual suspects, the CNN’s, MSNBC, the Democrat Governor from New York Kathy Hochul, and the rest of the usual crowd, Schumer, Pelosi, Biden, the LA Times all of them …were making noises about how this is the result of Tucker Carlson, Fox news, and Free speech for that matter. They also spent a good deal of time labeling him a mental defective, and trying desperately to associate mental defect with having conservative values.

What they failed to mention of course was that the State mental health system knew about this character for about a year, and so did the FBI. And of course the government failed in its responsibility to deal with that situation before it got out of hand.

Then, as I noted yesterday, his manifesto dropped, (despite social media having locked that file down, somebody beat them to it) and suddenly the cacophony from the usual suspects died away so quickly that you could hear the echo. It turned out that while racist he may well have been, he was also certainly anti-Semitic, and he was solidly left-wing.

Of course by then a good deal of damage had been done which is precisely what they intended. And I will guarantee you that despite it being proven false, you will never see a retraction from those people much less an apology.

The pattern is crystal clear..Every time something like this comes up, it ends up being exactly the opposite of what the left tells us it is and in this I include the lame stream media. But they don’t bother admitting that till months after the fact. Think about it now, Russia gate, two impeachment attempts against Donald Trump with no fact backing them at all, Trayvon Martin, George Floyd, every time the Democrats try to attach themselves to something it ends up blowing up in their faces, once the fax start coming out. But every time there’s a rush to judgment before those facts come out.

Why would they do that? Because it works to their advantage.

And the tragedy in Buffalo was seen as one more of the same. Remember, friends, we are talking about a group of people whose motto is never let a good crisis go to waste.

New York Governor Kathy Hochul wasted no time using State taxpayer money to make what amounted to a campaign appearance in Buffalo yesterday. Did she say anything about the fact that if there was more than just the retired policeman working security in the place that was carrying a firearm that lives could have been saved? Of course not. She used the opportunity to blatantly lean on gun control. And you know she’s going to continue doing that. Again, never let a good crisis go to waste.

One really must Wonder if the government ignores such matters intentionally knowing that eventually they will be provided with political talking points. In truth, that’s probably a bit more complex than most Democrats have the brains to set up, but frankly they couldn’t have handled it any better if they were actually trying to do that.

And so 10 people are dead, and probably four more in the hospital.

If the Democrats have lost a talking point to the crime of somebody committing actual journalism, not to worry. At least the left-wing media has a squirrel to chase prior to the next election, and a good deal of historical examples that a number of voters will follow them on the squirrel chase.


24/7 Wall Street reports:

Buffalo, New York, is among the U.S. cities with the highest homicide rates. There were a total of 61 murders reported in the city in 2020, or 24.0 for every 100,000 people — well above the national homicide rate of 6.5 murders per 100,000.

Even though homicide is the least common form of criminal violence — accounting for less than 2% of all violent crimes — places with high homicide rates also often have high overall violent crime rates, and Buffalo is no exception. There were 1,018 violent crimes reported for every 100,000 people in Buffalo in 2020, compared to 399 incidents per 100,000 nationwide.

Those crimes tend to go unnoticed at least by the mainstream media and by the politicians. But let some white kid with a screw loose show up to Buffalo and create what amounts to a normal weekend in Chicago, and suddenly it’s a crisis.

I’ve said for years in these spaces that problem solution is required proper problem identification. You’re simply not going to get that, the way this is being handled by both the leftist government running things at the moment, and their lap dogs in the press.

Let’s be clear about this…

Is this event a tragedy? Of course it is. Does that make the rest of what I suggest here less of a problem? Of course it doesn’t.

The only conclusion to draw is that these events are being manipulated and possibly created for political purposes.

“Created” may sound a little far-fetched to you… or maybe not given what we’ve seen over the last few years…. But think about it, every one of the mass shootings we’ve seen lately, the perp is a well-known issue to the authorities …state, local, and Federal.

I believe that’s a clue.
