Today is the 1-year anniversary of the Parkland Shooting, and it’s hardly being remembered because the Distractor-in-Chief ensures he receives all the attention. All this talk about his wall is making me puke.
A White Domestic Terrorist Killed A Legal Immigrant
There was a story last week that blows up the wall lie that’s not being talked about enough. It’s the lie illegals are coming here harming White people.
Well, the story about a legal immigrant from Venezuela killed at the hands of Nickolas Cruz (a White kid) a year ago in Parkland, FL has dismantled the lie Americans need a wall to protect us from bad Mexicans, Guatemalans, pumpkins, MS-13, Santa Claus, fairies and whatever else Trump dreams of.
Manuel Oliver, a legal, asylum-seeking immigrant fleeing the violence in Venezuela, left his country 15-years ago to provide a safe place for his family to live and thrive. This grieving father told Joe Scarborough on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, he chose Parkland, FL because it was safe, had “good schools,” and great business opportunities for entrepreneurs. On February 14, 2018, this father’s life was changed forever when a White, privileged, American young teenager from community walked into Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School and decided to kill his son Joaquin Oliver along with 16 of his classmates and teachers.
No wall would have stopped this young man, because he’s a citizen with all the rights and privileges entitled to him with his citizenship. Those same rights enabled him to be a domestic terrorist, killing immigrants.
It seems immigrant stories and immigrant lives don’t matter. An American White kid killed immigrants — but that story isn’t being told by the President and his White cult. No wall in hell would have stopped Cruz from killing in Parkland, FL.
This immigrant father’s only sin was he sent his son to school. He put too much trust in his community. He misread his neighborhood too because there is no such thing as a safe place in America any more thanks to domestic terrorist and unstable people with guns. Living in affluent White communities makes you no safer than any other community. It actually makes them targets because they are so relaxed, so free, so unaware, and so trusting — soft targets.
These places are all the things a domestic terrorist look for.
Constituents Check Our Lying Representative Live
To add insult to injury, our GOP Congressional Representative Gaetz (R-FL) attempts to lie to parents attending a committee meeting hearing on gun violence a week or so ago, promoting lying Trump’s wall as a method to prevent more school shootings from happening across America. In the video, you can see how the Trump ally is saying just what his cult leader instructed him to.
Two fathers of children killed in the Parkland shooting weren’t having any of it. He picked the wrong two men to try and screw over on that day. When they called Representative Gaetz out on his bull, he had the nerve to get angry- threatening to put the two grieving fathers out of the hearing. These politicians should spend their eternity in hell for their failure to regard our lives.
Watch the video of the insult to grieving parents as they call him out on his bullshit.
The fathers of the two students killed at Majorie Stoneman Douglas High School last Valentines Day know all too well who the biggest perpetrators of all crimes are in the United States — it’s White men, not immigrants as the Satan-in-Chief and his ignorant followers and surrogates would have us believe.
The Stats Don’t Lie
Our elected polished liars have slickly meshed violent criminal crimes and illegal immigration into one issue, when the two crimes are totally different, captured by different agencies (Homeland Security and the FBI) and counted using two-three different methods to come up with the national total. The stats don’t lie and are usually the same stats used to inform policy. This administration just pulls numbers out of their asses. The stats don’t lie.
According, according to 2017 FBI data (the most recent available), of adult arrestees for whom ethnicity was reported, only 17.8 were Hispanic or Latino. Furthermore, in 2017, 68.9 percent of all individuals arrested were White, 27.2 percent were Black or African American, and 3.9 percent were of other races. Finally, of all arrestees for whom ethnicity was reported, 18.1 percent were Hispanic or Latino. How does that border wall stop these criminals?
In any event, as usual, the data highlights in 2017, more White people were arrested (5,626,140) for all crimes committed in America than any other ethnic group. Only 1,190,671 arrestees were noted as Hispanic/Latino. I’m sure any bad hombre illegal border crossers were included in that number. Got to the FBI’s website to check it out yourself. Don’t believe your lying President!
This means more crimes, including all the violent crimes, were committed by White and Black people, not Hispanic/Latinos (including illegal immigrants).
Trump and the GOP are pulling data out of their asses and making lies up on the fly to fan the flames of racism within their base.
This data doesn’t break out how many arrestees were Hispanic/Latino and illegal immigrants who committed crimes in the United States. The data only shows how many arrestees were Hispanic/Latino in 2017. This administration, like every White administration this country has ever had, overlooks the primary group of troublemakers to focus on a very small minority group because Whiteness always need a villain. Whiteness is always looking outward instead of looking inward.
Also in America, between 1982–2018, more White males have engaged in domestic terrorism/mass shootings than any other ethnic group. Between 1982 and November 2018, 60 out of 107 mass shootings were initiated by White shooters. A wall wouldn’t stop any of these mass shooters because they’re homegrown, free to move about the nation to kill in plain sight.
Boom — busted!
Where Is The Wall For Bad White Criminals Killing Us?
The wall stopping illegal immigrants, job losses, and gun violence argument just went right out of the window. It’s a lie. Our own government is lying to us and our own mass media helps to promote the lie. We should all be afraid.
The point the fathers drive home in the interview on MSNBC today makes this truth abundantly clear. Immigrants with guns are not a threat to us — but native-born White men with guns are.
The need for a wall is a lie, and these two fathers make that plain. I salute these two men and I hope they find some peace in advocating for the lives of our children. These parents have come to the realization the only ones who can save us — is us. Not a politician.
May the children from Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School who lost their lives to gun violence at the hands of a domestic terrorist on February 14, 2018, and any other child who’s lost his/her life to gun violence at the hands of a homegrown terrorist rest in power!
May no more students or teachers die in another school at the hands of domestic terrorists in America.
Most importantly, may we never forget.
