(TeaParty.org) – Democrats are certainly not elected for their intellectual honesty or their logical consistency. This much has become abundantly clear, and it speaks volumes about the state of rhetoric in our country.
They’re elected, at least they seem to believe this is the case, for their ability to turn everything into an opportunity for identity politics to virtue signal about injustice to inflate their own egos.
This becomes particularly despicable, however, when an innocent man is accused of the death of a child, and those who wish to frame it as a hate crime to suit their own narratives show absolutely no remorse.
You may have heard of the tragic death of Jazmine Barnes, a 7-year-old girl who was shot and killed while sitting in a parked car with her family on December 30th in Houston.
Police originally shared details of a possible white suspect, making clear that this was only one angle they were pursuing in their hunt to find little Jazmine’s killer.
Jazmine, however, is black, so with the help of supreme race-baiter Shawn King, the narrative that her death was a hate crime quickly took off:
URGENT. ALL HANDS ON DECK.
A 40 y/o white man w/ a beard in a red pickup truck pulled up on 7 y/o Jazmine Barnes and her family near a Houston @Walmart and shot and killed her and injured others.
I am joining the search for her killer and have a $25,000 reward.

Sheila Jackson Lee was quick to follow suit, saying at a press conference that “I believe – and having written hate crime legislation, knowing the criteria, I believe that this should be looked at as a hate crime. We don’t want to have on the street someone who is willing to kill children and possibly kill them in the name of hate.”
Unfortunately for narratives of white supremacy making a comeback in the US, it turns out that police arrested a young black man for the crime.
Did Lee eat her words and issue an apology for being mistaken about the nature of the crime?
Of course not.
She double-down, astonishingly.
“Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, when asked Sunday by a reporter about some of the comments made in the aftermath of the young girl’s death in Houston on Dec. 30, said it was ‘absolutely not’ irresponsible to make that suggestion,” Fox News reported.
“(N)othing is irresponsible when it comes to the loss of a precious 7- or 8-year old,” Lee said.
There’s nothing irresponsible about tailoring the tragic loss of a small child to suit your preferred narrative about life for blacks in America? How does that in any way, shape, or form create a nation where all Americans can receive equal access to justice in the eyes of the law?
This is the Democrat’s worldview: everyone is a victim except straight, white, males, and we’ll convince you of that if we have to politicize the death of a small child to do so.
