I just saw the news. There was a mass shooting in Buffalo, New York, that hits every Leftist talking point perfectly.
A manifesto apparently written by the suspect in a mass shooting at a Buffalo supermarket that killed 10 laid out specific plans to attack Black people and repeatedly cited the 'Great Replacement' theory. https://t.co/G3qwAicXpY

Buffalo shooter was investigated after threatening SCHOOL shooting last year – but still legally bought three guns https://t.co/tAZjYOhnsb

Here are the facts we know so far.
The shooter used an AR-15 pattern rifle. He was wearing body armor and an helmet decorated with neo-Nazi symbols. He left a 180 page white supremacist, racist, and antisemitic manifesto explaining his justification. He shot 13 people, killing 10, 11 of his victims were black. Despite a history of trouble, he purchased his guns and armor legally.
Tucker Carlson and AR-15 are both trending topics on social media as people rush to blame guns, Fox News, Tucker, the GOP, Trump, and the NRA for this shooting.
The fact is Hollywood writers couldn’t make up a more perfect scenario for a TV political drama if they tried.
If this was the opening of an episode of Law & Order you’d roll your eyes at it.
I’m in no way trying to diminish the enormity of this horrendous attack.
But this is so perfect to the Left’s narrative that they are going to use it to bludgeon the fuck out of us before the midterms.
I guarantee they will push gun control.
They will probably send the new DHS Minister of Truth after Fox and other conservative news outlets.
More domestic spying programs.
Probably laws against civilian body armor.
They will not let this crisis go to waste.
