Vice President Harris’s niece, Denver School Board member Tay Anderson, and socialist activist Joe Salazar are among those Democrats facing backlash for believing the alleged Boulder mass murderer was a white man.
Meena Harris and Anderson deleted their tweets after learning the identity of the suspect, 21-year-old Ahmad al Aliwi Alissa from Arvada.
Feel like we have a word for rush to make assumptions about someone accused of a crime based on racial trends in crime? https://t.co/HEl99DzZn1

Have you assumed something about someone just because you thought their skin colors were? Seems terribly racist. https://t.co/5I2YDLX124

deleted, but the list comes for everyone, @TayAndersonCO.

Members of the liberal press, including USA Today’s Diversity and Inclusion editor, also only played the race card because of Alissa’s appearance after his arrest.
The alleged shooter in Boulder, Colorado is white. Seven reported dead!

In order not to be outdone, Minnesota’s US Socialist Representative Ilhan Omar took the opposite view, claiming the media was disproportionately focused on the shooter’s race because she believed Alissa was ignorant.
This Sagittarius race and ethnicity were the focus yesterday when we didn’t even know what it was and just assumed it was white. https://t.co/KTnKDhQ1To

Start with an obviously untrue sentence. Follow with smear exposed from Aaron Rupar. Denied “narration” to advance the narrative.
Yes, this is a tweet from Ilhan Omar. https://t.co/xGTUJ6Jweq

Former Colorado State MP Joe Salazar made a similar observation that ironically came before we learned the Sagittarius was allegedly a Muslim.
Is that acceptable now? #copolitics https://t.co/tn0rT0abxq

Omar and Salazar’s implication that “white men” and “Muslims” are mutually exclusive is quite large, especially considering that 96% of Syrian immigrants consider themselves white.
The Democrats’ focus on the shooter’s race betrays bias on a number of fronts, but most importantly shows that the Liberals appear to have been more concerned with the killer’s ethnicity than the 10 victims and the grieving families they left behind.
Tucker Carlson on Fox News brought a blowtorch to Democrats and the media because of her sick fixation on Alissa’s racing.
TUCKER CARLSON: So that’s “alertness”. This is how you see the world when you have been so corrupted by ideological mania that you see even mass shootings as the perfect opportunity to advance your racial political agenda. He was a white man. That’s all you need to know
Then we found out the name of the suspect: Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa. This fact posed an immediate problem for the racing dealers. Does Ahmad Alissa Qualify as a White Man? No.
In all honesty, you might be wondering who cares? He just shot 10 people. That’s the only fact that matters. By the way, for what it’s worth, Ahmad Alissa looks pretty pale to us too, not that decent people should care about his race one way or another. But for the bigots responsible for America’s increasingly convoluted and politicized system of race classification, the only thing that matters is race. They decided that no matter what they look like, people named Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa cannot be white. People with such names are oppressed. That’s why they’re not white.
The left’s obsession with inserting racial tales into the bouldering tragedy is beyond disgusting.
Ten people are dead, including boulder policeman Eric Talley.
Decent people should focus on the victims of this tragedy and not turn Alissa’s heinous acts into an excuse to fuel heinous racial abuse.
