Maybe I’m foolish for getting out in front of “the facts” like this, but I’d put real cash money on a bet that the Wisconsin domestic terrorist believes he’s a victim of “white supremacy” and “institutional racism.” Dennis Prager has long said the victim mentality allows people to justify all kinds of evil.
Sure this guy knocked around some women and sexually assaulted them, but, hey! It’s not his fault America hates him and is holding him down. He’s just paying it forward. Even if he isn’t self-aware enough to know he’s motivated by believing the grievance narrative about blacks, the very fact of his life of crime points to a sense of despair and lack of self-mastery that the victim mentality engenders.
If Kyle Rittenhouse is a vigilante because he holds conservative values (like loving one’s neighbors by protecting them and their property — even if they’re black), then the Left owns this guy and one of the most evil acts by a domestic terrorist in our time. Make them own him.
The Waukesha murderer (I refuse to use his name) is a product of BLM, the 1619 Project, and all the other racist initiatives promulgated by the Left’s grievance industry. Hang him around their necks.Published in
