BIDEN: “We can ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines in this country once again. I got that done when I was a senator. It passed, it was the law for the longest time and it brought down these mass killings. We should do it again.” pic.twitter.com/mhZ4ANbhT3— Breaking911 (@Breaking911) March 23, 2021

As you might remember, I said that Joe was going to peak after signing the COVID relief bill. After using budget reconciliation to push that through a 50/50 Senate, it would be all downhill from there. Joe would spend the next year and a half giving back whatever goodwill he earned from the COVID bill by taking on polarizing culture war issues. He is proving me right on gun control and immigration.
After the Atlanta shooting, the media didn’t hesitate to racialize the issue and blame “white supremacy.” Joe went to Atlanta and said that we were all “complicit” in what happened there even though it was clear the shooter targeted prostitutes and was tormented by his own sexuality. Now in Boulder, it has come out since last night that the shooter was an anti-Trump Muslim who ranted about Islamophobia. Obviously, Joe can’t say that all Muslims are “complicit” in this particular shooting because that would be “racism” and “xenophobia” and perpetuating Islamophobic stereotypes. Democrats are only on safe ground when they use language like that to target and demonize White men.
In Atlanta, “white supremacy” was to blame for the shooting. In Boulder, Democrats have already settled on blaming gun owners. They don’t want to wait to find more about the shooter’s motive because it is already clear that that they aren’t going to be able to use that to blame the Right.
Note: Joe promised us that he would restore normalcy. It does seem like we are back in Obama’s second term now that mass shootings have returned, illegal aliens are pouring across the border again and crime is up. Washington is also hopelessly polarized and nothing else is getting done.
