DAILYKENN.com -- Eight people were shot dead in Chicago over the weekend. The victims were likely black and, therefore, don't matter to the far-left mainstream media. The left seems focused on fatal shootings, such as the seven who were fatally shot in Texas, when those shootings can be exploited to advance the cultural Marxist agenda. That agenda includes gun control and racial division.
Far-left moonbat blamed the shootings on white supremacists before they even occurred. Apparently, he anticipated the violence would occur, then projected the attrocities on white supremacists who, according to Tucker Carlson, don't even exist.
White supremacists on their way to Chicago for #LaborDayWeekend to carry out a series of covert shootings, that will mysteriously go unsolved, yet ultimately be blamed on “Black culture” when the reports come out Monday that “80 people in Chicago were shot this weekend” pic.twitter.com/VkBjM93moD— Tariq Nasheed 🇺🇸 (@tariqnasheed) August 30, 2019
