The El Paso shooting was a tragedy, no one disagrees with that. But Dems are trying to use it to attack Trump as if he personally pulled the trigger. Dem Presidential Candidate Beto O’Rourke tried to use it to blame Trump, claiming he encouraged this kind of attack.
“The document the terrorist in El Paso allegedly posted that refers to Latinos coming to this country as an invasion…It also says,” Tapper continued, “that he had this ideology before President Trump. He kind of anticipated, assuming this document is real, the alleged terrorist anticipated that people would blame President Trump for it, and said ‘I felt this way before President Trump’,” Tapper said bringing up the topic for O’Rourke to comment on.
“I don’t know the point you are trying to make here jake,” O’Rourke started. “But it is pretty obvious to me… that his anti-immigrant rhetoric, not just the things that I cited but calling asylum seekers animals or an infestation. Now you might describe a cockroach or termites as an infestation, something less than human. You might hear someone in the Third Reich describe a given people based on their characteristics as an infestation or subhuman. But that’s what the president is doing right now and it’s not just with Mexican Immigrants. Conflating Congresswoman Ilhan Omar with the terrorist from 9/11, encouraging that chanting in North Carolina of ‘Send her back.’ Let’s not mince words right now this president is encouraging greater racism and not just the racist rhetoric but the violence that so often follows.”
He then went on to claim that the shooter cited the New Zealand Shooter who cited Donald Trump as his inspiration.
“This anti-immigrant rhetoric – and again, it is not just President Trump, but he’s certainly, as the person in the position of greatest public trust in power, most responsible for it. This is Fox News; this is what we’re seeing on the internet; this is the toleration of intolerance and hatred and racism in this country; this is what is causing what we are seeing here today, and it will continue to happen unless we call it out and unless we change it.”

This is the bull that the MSM and Dems are trying to spread. Trump is not against immigrants. His wife is a legal immigrant. He is against illegals. That’s a huge difference that Dems somehow don’t understand. Trump did not incite the crowd to chant about Omar. She did that to herself by marginalizing 9/11 and constantly making statements that make you question her loyalty to the United States.
But O’Rourke is another one of these Dems that is blinded by the media’s narrative. He actually blames Trump for the actions of a deranged man. Poor SAP believes the media’s BS.
