Pima County Democrats Say Republicans Sponsoring ‘White Supremacy’

The Pima County Democratic Party has joined in the chorus of far-left Democrats who are blaming Republicans for Saturday’s mass shooting in Buffalo that left 10 people dead.

“White Supremacy is not mental illness, it is intentional radicalization of large groups of people, with the purpose of conducting terror operations,” the group said on Twitter. “It is enabled and often sponsored by Republican lawmakers. It is weaponized by [Fox News]. It is tearing our nation apart.”

Saturday, a gunman with a history of making violent threats traveled to what is described as a “black neighborhood” in Buffalo, where he entered a Tops Friendly Market grocery store and opened fire. He killed 10 people in the attack.

He left a 180-page manifesto behind, in which, as many have pointed out, the shooter describes his politics as “authoritarian left-wing.”

The Arizona Sun Times reached out to the Pima County Democratic Party to ask specifically which Republican lawmakers were enabling “white supremacy,” as the group claimed, and to provide specific examples of those Republicans doing so.

The group did not return the Sun Times‘ comment request.

Despite the fact that the shooter did not specifically mention any Republican or Fox News as a motivator for the shooting, Democrats have blamed Republicans and Fox News, particularly Tucker Carlson, who hosts the highest-rated cable news show in America.

Carlson has often discussed demographic shifts favoring Democrats at the voting booth.

So have Democrats, but Democrats claim that Carlson and Republicans are spreading “hatred” when they discuss the topic.

Right-wing commentator Ben Shapiro set the record straight Monday on Twitter.

“So just to get this straight, the Left argues that demographics are destiny, that demographics change in America will inevitably lead to a progressive majority — and it’s Republicans who are echoing the Great Replacement Theory?” he asked rhetorically.

“If you want to be accurate about the Great Replacement Theory, it is a conspiracy theory about Jewish elites shipping in minorities to change the racial stock of a country,” he said. “That is precisely what the Buffalo shooter says. And it is echoed by neither political party.”
