(May 20, 2022) — On May 14th, there was a terrible tragedy in Buffalo, New York.
Eighteen-year-old Payton Gendron went to a Tops grocery store and shot 13 people, 10 of whom died. Gendron is white. Eleven victims were black.
We extend our condolences to all those who lost family members and friends.
Almost immediately, the tragedy was publicized and utilized by the mainstream media and Biden administration to push narratives about the dangerous ‘white supremacy movement’ and the ‘Great Replacement conspiracy theory.’
A manifesto attributed to the murderer dealt with race, immigration and demographics (“the Great Replacement”).
Interestingly, a couple of Gendron’s non-white friends were surprised, saying they never suspected he was racist.
Certainly Gendron was – like many of these young, male mass shooters – mentally disturbed.
But that’s not the media’s emphasis.
The mass shooting is being used to promote gun control and censorship. For those of us who criticize U.S. immigration policy, this is a concern.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson has been blamed by some for inspiring this shooting. That’s quite unfair, as Carlson does not promote violence on his show. But he does provide perspectives of which the mainstream media does not approve.
President Biden went to Buffalo, where he gave a speech and promoted the narrative.
All mass shootings are tragic. But why are some publicized and others forgotten?
We’re told that “white supremacy” is rising in the United States and is a major threat.
Statistically, that’s utter balderdash.
You’d never guess it from the media, but murders of blacks perpetrated by whites are statistically rare.
Murders of whites perpetrated by blacks are more common, but aren’t publicized by the media.
Murders of blacks by other blacks are even more common, and they also aren’t publicized by the media.
All murders are tragic, but some are more politically useful than others.
In March of 2021, there was a mass shooting in Boulder, Colorado, which was similar to the Buffalo shooting. In Boulder, the shooter killed ten victims at a supermarket, as in Buffalo.
That shooting, however, was perpetrated by a Syrian immigrant. Thus it did not fit the narrative. So it disappeared down the memory hole, and Biden didn’t visit.
In November of 2021, Darrell Brooks, a black sympathizer of the Black Lives Matter movement who had called for anti-white violence on Facebook, drove an SUV into a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin, killing 6 and injuring 66 others.
The Washington Post called it a “tragedy caused by a SUV,” as if the vehicle itself had plotted the attack.
The media was not interested in the perpetrator’s BLM ideology.
To his credit, President Biden called it a “horrific act of violence.” First Lady Jill Biden and Doug Emhoff, husband of Kamala Harris, visited Waukesha.
But, of course, there was no linking of Brooks’ ideology to the attack.
By now, it has also disappeared down the memory hole.
What about the “Great Replacement”?
That term refers to the demographic change taking place in the U.S. and other Western countries in which Third World immigrants and their offspring are becoming a larger share of the population, with the native white populations diminishing in proportion.
You might call this a “Great Replacement” or you might call it something else. But it’s an undeniable development.
Some Democrats have openly gloated over demographic change and how it’s helping them. That’s okay because they support it.
But if you are critical of the unfolding “Great Replacement,” then it becomes a dangerous conspiracy theory.
So, according to the media, the truth or falsity of the Great Replacement depends on your opinion of it.
We shouldn’t be deceived by such rhetoric.
We mourn the loss of life in Buffalo.
Once again, the Buffalo mass shooting was a tragedy.
But this tragedy is being used by the administration to push an agenda, and to censor and suppress its critics.
We should not be intimidated and we should not go along with this cynical strategy.
Mass immigration (illegal and legal), citizenship issues, and demographics are legitimate public policy issues, and as American citizens we have every right to peacefully debate them.
