It’s not about the problem; it’s about politics.
Any major issue that comes up, whether it’s an atrocity committed by man or destruction at the hand of mother nature, the first step for a leftist is to find out how they can somehow place the blame on their political opponents.
For instance, they placed the blame for the California wildfires on the rich businessmen lead by Donald Trump. In truth, California wildfires have been common even before the industrial age, and the latest fires were actually a result of bad land management on the government’s part. A California government, I’ll remind you, that is very blue.
Even hurricanes were blamed on rich white men, as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attempted to sell the public when she tried to push the idea that these patriarchal overlords had a hand in killing her grandfather through a natural disaster.
When it comes to shootings, the left already has their finger extended and ready to point. When the Jersey City shooting happened, some Democrats were champing at the bit to blame someone they hated, and Rep. Rashida Tlaib was no different.
Before the facts had a chance to roll out completely, Tlaib was already on social media leading the charge against white supremacists.
“This is heartbreaking,” tweeted Tlaib in performance before she got to the real purpose of her tweet.
“White supremacy kills,” she added.
But soon the real culprits were exposed and it turned out they were the opposite of white supremacists. In fact, they were black supremacists of the Black Hebrew Israelites.
Tlaib deleted the tweet, but not before it was captured by internet users.

Tlaib didn’t care that a shooting occurred. She cared that she had an example of how white people are dangerous and terroristic. This is also proved by the fact that Tlaib, once she deleted the comment, didn’t seem to have anything else to say about it. There was no apology for the obvious lie she told, nor was there any other tweet expressing her sadness over the shooting.
What she did tweet out, however, was how Trump was abusing his power in a racist manner and targeting people “solely based on their ethic [sic] background, their faith, disability, sexual orientation and even source of income.”
Hey, didn't you blame white people for the Jersey City shooting and then deleted it when you found out that it was actually committed by the opposite of white supremacists, then proceeded to be silent about it? https://t.co/pNLp71loqu

I’d say the hypocrisy is astounding, but it’s Tlaib. I think we know by now that she’s the real racist in the room — is and always has been.
If you thought that was bad, this shooting occurred just across the river from “Squad” leader Ocasio-Cortez’s back yard and we are still waiting for her to make any kind of comment about it at all.
Some real leaders the Democrats have there.
