Woke up this morning to news of a mass shooting with 10 dead and at least 10 wounded in Monterey Park, California during a Lunar New Year party, some Asian shindig apparently (Monterey Park is over 2/3 Asian, mostly Chinese). A 50/50 killed to wounded ration doesn’t sound like the work of a looter-American so the media was all in a frenzy. The CBS Sunday “news” show this morning was on while I was working out and I could see in the subtitles they were breathlessly wondering what kind of gun was used and if it was a “hate crime”. The clowns on the TV were visibly aroused to think that a White guy might have shot up some Asians.
I took a nap this afternoon and woke up to a potential ID of the shooter (screenshot by me from L.A. Sheriff’s Department Facebook page)
Male/Asian/dark complexion. Another crushing disappointment.
By my reckoning we are at 33 mass shootings so far in 2023 and none have been committed by Whites. Unless a windup toy goes off I am guessing we will get to at least 100 before we get our first White shooter.
Better luck next time!
