Leftist identitarians on Twitter gleefully(!) proclaimed that the shooting was an example of at best white male toxicity, and likely white supremacy.
Then in turned out that the shooter was a Muslim immigrant from Syria.
The identitarians beat a hasty retreat, embarrassed for jumping to the conclusion he was white, because Muslims from Syria aren’t white.
In 1996, NBC characterized Richard Jewell as the prime suspect in the Atlanta Olympic Park bombing. Then-Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw went so far as to report that the authorities "probably have enough to arrest him right now." -Kyle Drennen
But before any investigation had taken place, the national media saw the opportunity to set a narrative. Some headlines read like this: "Black man found hanging from tree in Mississippi: Why this story haunts the nation." Is the KKK alive and well in the backwoods of the Deep South? -Joe Bilello

The digital magazine The Root was accused of racism Wednesday after publishing an article declaring “Whiteness is a Pandemic” in response to Tuesday’s deadly shootings in Georgia.
There was a rush to conclude that the shootings that killed eight people at three Atlanta-area massage parlors were hate crimes after officials confirmed that six of the eight victims were Asian-Americans. Investigators said Wednesday that the suspected gunman, 21-year-old Robert Long, told them he was motivated by a “sexual addiction”. They added that racism “did not appear to be the motive”.

At Austin Peay University in Tennessee, the campus erupted in outrage when rainbow nooses were discovered hanging from a tree. Social media exploded and every social justice warrior on campus felt the need to express their displeasure. But later, it was discovered that the nooses were an art project by a student looking to draw attention to the high number of suicides in the LGBT community.

The “Hands up, don’t shoot” slogan used by Democrat activists since August 2013 is a complete falsehood, outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder admitted Wednesday. He acknowledge the faked story as he released the Justice Department’s investigation of the August 2014 shooting of Michael Brown, in Ferguson, Mo... Instead, Holder suggested the media and Americans recognize the fakery. “It remains not only valid – but essential – to question how such a strong alternative version of events was able to take hold so swiftly, and be accepted so readily,” he said.
How much better it feels to rush to judgment. How much more satisfying it is to decide, on the basis of nothing, that you know and understand what’s happened — and to light upon the comforting conclusion that the cause of the evil is something that doesn’t implicate you.
Cecil B. Moore Mural Vandalized
Philadelphia, Feb 2020
"This kind of hate will not be tolerated."
"We condemn defacing of public art, especially with racist slurs of one of Philadelphia’s great leaders."
"Not only is this hateful language unacceptable anywhere, it’s deeply offensive to deface a memorial to a civil rights leader like Cecil Bassett Moore. We want to send a signal that this kind of hate will not be tolerated in the City of Philadelphia."
-City Council President Darrell Clarke
"Cecil B. Moore was a hero of the civil rights movement. The racist who defaced his mural will never silence the power of his example."
-Senator Bob Casey (D)
Philadelphia police have released images of the suspect wanted for spray-painting racial slurs on the Cecil B. Moore mural in North Philadelphia. The suspect is described as a black male, between 25 to 35 years of age, with a medium build:
Hoax over, celebrating the life of Cecil B. Moore...

The guide spells out how to talk about gun control and when to press the issue, the best time being in the wake of a publicized shooting. For example, it calls on gun control advocates to speak out, "don't wait" for the facts, after a shooting like Martin's heightens awareness of the issue. -Democrat anti-gun guide
Makes A Complete Fool of Himself
On the day she and her husband killed 14 people and wounded 21 others in San Bernardino, Calif., a woman pledged allegiance to the Islamic State in a Facebook post, officials said Friday, as the F.B.I. announced that it was treating the massacre as an act of terrorism.
“The investigation so far has developed indications of radicalization by the killers, and of potential inspiration by foreign terrorist organizations,” the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, said at a news conference here.
With only the barest outline of events available, pundits and reporters seemed to agree that the massacre had to be the fault of the tea party movement in general, and of Sarah Palin in particular. Why? Because they had created, in New York Times columnist Paul Krugman's words, a "climate of hate."

United Press International reported that the Anti-Defamation League "said ricin . . . is popular with domestic extremists. . . . Many ricin incidents have been attributed to homegrown extremists, particularly right-wing groups such as anti-government extremists and white supremacists. Other ricin incidents have been unrelated to any specific ideology, the ADL said." A suspect, Paul Curtis, was quickly caught. On Wednesday the Jackson Clarion Ledger published a photo of him, posing with a bumper sticker that reads "Christian and a Democrat."

And when the news came of the massacre at the Boulder, Colo., supermarket, it was entirely predictable that the presumption would be that the shooter was, again, motivated by white supremacy - and might even have been kept alive by cops because of it. -John Podhoretz
