TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! SHAMELESS SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIORS BLAMING PREZ TRUMP FOR DEADLY OLATHE SHOOTING IGNORE AMERICAN HISTORY OF ANTI-IMMIGRANT VIOLENCE AMID PARTISAN POLITICS!!!
Quick fact check from our blog community as we attempt to provide a bit of perspective and context on a tragic bit of recent violence that has been sensationalized and used for political gain.
To wit and a conclusion from our blog community . . .
BLAMING PREZ TRUMP FOR THE DEADLY OLATHE TRIPLE SHOOTING FOR POLITICAL GAIN IGNORES THE LONGSTANDING TRADITION OF AMERICAN VIOLENCE AGAINST IMMIGRANTS!!!
To be fair, immigrants also kill their fair share of Americans and those crimes have ALSO been used for political capital . . . However, the "shock" from snowflakes decrying this incident and blaming Prez Trump in order to fuel their own agenda seems to willingly ignore reality.
Here's one of many historical reference points given that the classic example of anti-immigrant sentiment - The Sacco and Vanzetti case has been challenged and sadly forgotten by many who think that political anti-immigrant fervor is something new:
New York Times: When Americans Lynched Mexicans
"Americans are largely unaware that Mexicans were frequently the targets of lynch mobs, from the mid-19th century until well into the 20th century, second only to African-Americans in the scale and scope of the crimes. One case, largely overlooked or ignored by American journalists but not by the Mexican government, was that of seven Mexican shepherds hanged by white vigilantes near Corpus Christi, Tex., in late November 1873. The mob was probably trying to intimidate the shepherds’ employer into selling his land. None of the killers were arrested.
"From 1848 to 1928, mobs murdered thousands of Mexicans, though surviving records allowed us to clearly document only about 547 cases. These lynchings occurred not only in the southwestern states of Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas, but also in states far from the border, like Nebraska and Wyoming."
A more recent example of anti-immigrant violence that happened after Prez Obama created a so-called "post-racial" society with this historic election win . . .
ABC: Border Vigilante Shawna Forde Sentenced to Death for Home Invasion
And again . . . There are some very HONEST AND WELL-MEANING people concerned about the increasingly vitriolic American discourse amid the current political climate . . . Nevertheless, from so so many media denizens both social and otherwise . . . What we've seen is a DESPICABLE effort to politicize this tragedy amid an otherwise boring policy debate in which most Americans seem to support an immigration crackdown . . . At least as far as Mexicans are concerned.
