    Surge Summary: Tuesday’s tragic and fatal shootings in Atlanta were the product of a mentally unstable, self-professed “sex-addict”. The evidence indicates “racism” had little to do with the killer’s motivations. But the Democrats don’t care about any of that …

    by Gary Bauer

    As you know, there were terrible murders Tuesday at several Georgia spas or massage parlors.  Eight people, including six Asian Americans, were killed.

    Many on the left attempted to exploit the tragedy by blaming Donald Trump.  Joe Biden and Chuck Schumer immediately planted the idea that this was another example of white supremacy and racial hate crimes against Asian Americans.

    The Atlanta police have said that there is no indication – none – that this had anything to do with the fact that the victims were Asian.  The perpetrator was mentally disturbed.  He had been visiting these parlors and claimed that he was addicted to sex.  When he cracked, he brutally murdered the women he felt were causing him to sin.

    So, why would the president and the Senate majority leader not wait even one day before blaming it all on America’s “systemic racism”?  Well, that’s just part of the left’s general narrative now.  They want to drive home the idea that we are a racist country and that white supremacists are the danger.

    By the way, the data does suggest that there is an increase in hate crimes against Asian Americans.  It’s occurring mostly in urban areas that are liberal bastions of Trump haters.

    Most big city mayors won’t release the data on who is committing hate crimes in cities like New York, Chicago and San Francisco.  But periodically surveillance video is released, and those videos show that the attackers of Asians are often other minorities.

    Sadly, there’s a history of such attacks that goes back many years.  (Here and here.)  That’s not Donald Trump’s fault. Nor is it evidence of America’s “systemic racism.”  It is evidence of sin that has no skin color.
