According to CNN panelist Symone Sanders, the vicious attack on a mentally disabled man in Chicago during which his attackers yelled “f.ck Donald Trump” and “f.ck white people,” can be blamed on one man; Donald Trump.
Four people are now in custody after a shocking video emerged of an 18-year-old man being tied up, tortured, cut, beaten and forced to drink toilet water while his assailants screamed racial slurs and live streamed the entire thing on Facebook.
The victim was held by his kidnappers for 24-48 hours before being released, at which point he was spotted by police stumbling around in a west Chicago suburb and immediately taken to hospital.
The chilling footage has sparked a fresh conversation about how the mainstream media’s race baiting and its support for ‘Black Lives Matter’, a group that has inspired violence and whose ideological inspiration is a cop killing terrorist, is legitimizing violent anti-white racism.
However, according to CNN contributor Symone Sanders, the main culprit behind the attacks is Donald Trump.
“I just want to remind folks that we cannot sit here and ignore that, at least for the last year, on very public display, the worst parts of America have been brought from the fringe into the mainstream,” Sanders told CNN’s Don Lemon. “So, that affects people on both sides.”
“We’ve talked about white nationalists and white supremacists and the KKK, but there also, when this inflammatory rhetoric is out there, when someone is repeatedly telling you that your community is the worst of the worst, it brings out the worst of the worst in people,” she added.
Sanders previously responded to the black mob beating of a white man in Chicago because the mob thought he had voted for Trump with the refrain, “Oh my goodness, poor white people!”
She also previously caused controversy by saying, “we don’t need white people leading the Democratic party.”
Meanwhile, Chicago police have refused to label the incident a hate crime, with Chicago Police Department Commander Kevin Duffin telling reporters, “Kids make stupid decisions — I shouldn’t call them kids, they’re legally adults. But they’re young adults and they make stupid decisions.”
Chicago law states, “A person commits hate crime when, by reason of the actual or perceived race, color, creed, religion, ancestry, gender, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability, or national origin of another individual or group of individuals, regardless of the existence of any other motivating factor or factors, he commits assault, battery, aggravated assault.”
Given that the attackers yelled “fuck white people” and forced the man to say “I love black people” during the vicious assault, the incident is clearly a hate crime. If the victim’s mental disability was also a motivating factor, then that makes it a hate crime on at least two counts.
Let’s reverse the situation again. If four white Trump supporters abducted a mentally disabled black person for 48 hours and tortured him while yelling racial slurs, would it be a hate crime?
Of course it would, and the left would be apoplectic with rage and condemnation. But in a world defined by social justice warriors and radical leftist professors who ludicrously insist that it’s impossible to be racist against white people, the same rules apparently don’t apply.
