More Asians Attacked in Hate-Crimes by Multiracial White Supremacy

Just terrible.

Evil criminals are going to do evil things.

But non-criminals are becoming repulsive lairs, propagandists, and racist defamers in a mad rush to blame anything that happens on the One Race The Ruling Class Allows Racism Towards.

John Sexton says, racistly:

It seems to me the national media was pretty eager to turn the Atlanta shootings into a national conversation about white men targeting Asians and thereby wrap up the whole story of anti-Asian attacks over the past year into a neat critical race theory narrative about the dangers of whiteness. But right away there was a problem. There was no evidence to support the claim the victims were targeted for their race. Instead it appeared the attacker had a problem with sex addiction.

After the Boulder shooting lots of people on the left were eager to fit that crime into the pre-established narrative, but their efforts backfired when the shooter turned out to be Syrian. Now we have these two attacks yesterday in New York and it seems reality just wont cooperate with the narrative.

The media was on fire last week with talk about the connection between anti-Asian violence and white supremacy. I read at least two pieces making that case and many more that referenced it in passing. I'm sure there are people on the left eager to square this circle but obviously reality is a bit more complicated than Critical Race Theory would lead you to believe.

The real lesson here is that if we start looking at the race of attackers and victims to draw broad conclusions, then we have to be willing to do that all the time, not just when the race fits a preferred narrative. I don't think anyone should be doing that frankly, but I think we're seeing the impact of many years of BLM agitating on the media.

If the left is going to focus on the race of vicious criminals, then they can't blame the rest of us for following their lead.

Do they really want to racialize crime? Is that a political game they think they can win?

Have these very intelligent, very well-informed individuals ever checked the crime statistics? Maybe they should take a glance.
