Busting Biden’s Buffalo Bluster

The rare instance of white supremacist violence is a Demo dog whistle diversion from the real disparity in interracial violence.

On the pretext of “comforting the families of victims,” Joe Biden, a.k.a. “President Unity,” went to Buffalo in order to use the caskets of the dead as a political soapbox to blame his opponents for the killing of innocents by a deranged assailant. I covered that assault in detail the day prior to Biden’s visit.

I call it the pretext of “comforting the families of victims” because Biden’s intent was to disgracefully politicize the tragedy.

Biden did he mention the families of those five people murdered in Chicago, five more in St. Louis and three in Milwaukee — among more than 80 others murdered by thugs nationwide the same weekend as the Buffalo attack.

Recall that he did not go to Boulder, Colorado, a year ago to comfort the families of victims after a very similar attack at a food market by a 21-year-old Trump-hating Islamist immigrant who murdered 10 white men and women.

Nor did he go to Waukesha, Wisconsin, five months ago to comfort families of victims after an avowed black supremacist murdered seven people and injured 60 others at a Christmas parade.

He didn’t go to New York a month ago when 10 commuters were attacked on a subway by another black supremacist. Those assailants and may lesser known have been weaponized by the Marxist so-called “Black Lives Matter” movement embraced by Democrats nationwide over the last two years.

Nor did he go to comfort the families of victims murdered in the “mass assault” in downtown Sacramento.

Nor did he visit any of the families of the more than 21,000 others murdered mostly murdered by thug, drug and gang subculture sociopaths, who are responsible for the daily carnage on Demos’ urban poverty plantations across our nation.

Biden did not mention the Laguna Woods, California, church attack by a Chinese immigrant the day after the Buffalo attack.

Why?

Obviously, those assailants and assaults did not fit the Left’s racial narrative, so those stories quickly faded from the mainstream media’s footnotes on crime. Those lives were of no value as political fodder for Democrat Party politicos.

Biden and his cadre are not about to mention the fact that black people commit 90% of interracial felonies — black on white, Hispanic or Asian — despite representing just 13% of our population, and the age group of that assailant profile represents just 3% of the population. That would include the commission of 21% of hate crimes, as defined by the FBI. Nor will they mention the tragic fact that 88% of the suspects who murdered black people are also black.

The rare instance of white supremacist violence is a loud Demo/MSM dog whistle diversion from the real disparity in interracial violence and the cultural reality of black-on-black violence.

By comparison with the aforementioned 21,000 murders, according to the latest FBI data on “mass shootings” — which it defines as “one or more individuals actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a populated area” — in a nation of 330 million people, there were 38 victims in 2020, there were 43 victims in 2021, and including Buffalo and Sacramento, there have been 30 victims this year.

So, Joe, why Buffalo?

Because it fit Biden’s diversionary claim that the most “lethal threat to the homeland” is actually white supremacy.

In addition to an opportunity to vilify his opponents, Biden and his entourage of hate hustlers could use the tragedy to undermine the Second Amendment, for reasons I outlined last week. It was a two-for-one political bait bargain he could not resist.

We got a hint of what he would say before his departure, as Politico noted he was “telling aides that he no longer recognizes the GOP, which he now views as an existential threat to the nation’s democracy.” In other words, if you disagree with Joe Biden and his thugs, you are an existential threat to our nation.

And apparently, his chief political strategist must now be Rep. Liz Cheney (?-WY), who demonstrated her lunacy level by declaring: “The House GOP leadership has enabled white nationalism, white supremacy, and anti-semitism. … GOP leaders must renounce and reject these views and those who hold them.” As if the GOP has ever embraced such views.

Cheney is confusing the history of the Republican Party with that of the racist Democrat Party, whose protagonists were, and remain, the architects of white supremacy.

But she set the tone for Biden’s assertion that any of his political opponents objecting to his open-border policy are guilty of inflaming “replacement theory” racists like the Buffalo assailant. That, despite the fact that assailant defined his political views as “authoritarian left.”

What did Biden actually say in Biffalo?

After appropriately mentioning the victims, he condemned racists as every Republican has done. Biden declared: “White supremacy will not have the last word. … What happened here is simple and straightforward: terrorism. Terrorism. Domestic terrorism. Violence inflicted in the service of hate and a vicious thirst for power that defines one group of people being inherently inferior to any other group.”

But he then used the tragedy to claim the attack was motivated by “the media and politics…” That was his bridge to blame his media and political critics: “I condemn those who spread the lie for power, political gain, and for profit. … It’s a poison running through — it really is — running through our body politic.”

Trying to bridge the blame again, he confusingly claimed: “I wasn’t going to run … again for president. I, honest to God … I was going to be darned if I was going to let — anyway. Don’t want to get going.” Regaining his thoughts, he declared that the battle between antifa v. alt-right thugs in Charlottesville, which he repeatedly attempted to blame on Donald Trump (fact-checked FALSE), motivated him to run again.

He then linked Trump and racists: “Heads of state and other countries ask me, ‘What’s going on? What in God’s name happened on January 6th? What happened in Buffalo? What happ- [unintelligible].’” He continued mumbling incoherently: “All chil- — life, liberty, our universal goods — gifts of God. We didn’t get it from the government, we got it from — because we exist, and we’re called upon to defend them.”

But in a more lucid moment he said: “Look, the American experiment in democracy is in a danger like it hasn’t been in my lifetime. It’s in danger this hour.”

Ironically, the greatest threat to our Republic is Joe Biden.

FOOTNOTE regarding so-called “mass shootings” and “gun violence”: For the record, mass murders are very rare in our nation of 330 million people. There were approximately 25,000 homicides in the U.S. in the latest year of record, which you can view state by state, and fortunately there are indications that homicides may be declining after the surge in violence unleashed by Democrats in 2020.

They ubiquitously and falsely label the murderous contagion they seeded “gun violence” and focus exclusively on the rare high-profile “mass shootings,” which account for only a tiny fraction of all homicides. More than 99% of murders in the U.S. are not the result of mass attacks. Of course, guns don’t commit violence, thugs and sociopaths commit violence.

In a country and culture that ignores the rising generation of sociopathic murderers – countless thugs in violent urban centers who are completely saturated with violence to the point of glorifying it, it is fortunate that the incidence of mass murder is not ten times higher. Arguably, the only thing keeping that number down is that about 40% of households – 125 million Americans – are legal and responsible gun owners.

The oft-cited Gun Violence Archive defines a “mass shooting” as any incident that involves a “minimum of four victims shot, either injured or killed.” But the vast majority of those violent attacks are the result of drug and gang violence committed on Democrat-controlled urban centers.

Democrats are very deliberate about only focusing on the infrequent high profile attacks because they can’t escape responsibility for the vast majority of murders on their degraded urban poverty plantations. They want to avoid at all cost, the “inconvenient truth” about race and violence, which is the direct result of failed Democrat social programs.

Those murders aren’t useful for the Democrats’ gun control narrative they invoke evoke emotional reaction from mostly wealthy white suburban women, whom form the Demos’ largest constituency.

As for actual mass murders as detailed in the FBI’s data on “active shooter incidents” – which it defines as “one or more individuals actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a populated area” – in 2022, the FBI reported 50 incidents resulting in 313 casualties (100 killed and 213 wounded). In 2021 the FBI reported 61 incidents resulting in 243 casualties (103 killed and 140 wounded). In 2020, the FBI reported 40 incidents resulting in 164 casualties (38 killed and 126 wounded).

A more relevant record of mass murder data is maintained by the Associated Press and Northeastern University, which uses the Department of Justice definition of mass public shooting: “A multiple homicide incident in which four or more victims are murdered with firearms.” These numbers fluctuate significantly year over year, and range between 20 and 40 incidents.

FOOTNOTE 2: Firearms used for suicide represents 54% of all deaths involving firearms, most also involving drugs or alcohol abuse. The Left’s support for assisted suicide is in conflict with their support for gun control.

FOOTNOTE 3: Crime researcher John Lott reports, “[The Democrats’] ‘guns first’ approach ignores a basic fact — over 92% of violent crimes in America do not involve firearms.”

FOOTNOTE 4: Before we ban guns, let’s ban alcohol, which is far more deadly than guns. According to the latest CDC data, 140,000 people died from alcohol-related causes last year – more than five times the number homicides. Drunk drivers are responsible for 28 deaths per day. And notably, it is estimated that alcohol is also a key factor in at least 30% of homicides involving firearms. (Include illegal drugs and that number jumps to about 60%.) If Democrats are serious about homicides, they should outlaw alcohol. Problem is, the vast majority of alcohol users possess and use it legally and responsibly. Likewise, the vast majority of firearm owners possess and use them legally and responsibly. Enacting a prohibition on firearms is tantamount to enacting a prohibition on alcohol. In both cases, only law-abiding users are penalized while outlaws don’t obey laws.
