Here’s something you don’t hear every day. Former Democrat National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile is upset. She doesn’t like that people are Blaming Mr. Trump for the actions of the mass-murderers in El Paso and Dayton.
.@donnabrazile tells me she’s deeply disappointed by the rhetoric surrounding the post-shootings blame game. She says POTUS “has nothing to do with” the massacres.

“This conversation about race and racism, domestic terrorism, white supremacy, white nationalism, it is that I am profoundly saddened as an American,” Brazile answered. “The reason why is to point fingers and to play this so-called blame game. President Trump had nothing to do with the maniac, and I’m being gracious here, the maniac who shot up a Wal-Mart store. He had nothing to do with the person who shot up, you know, the bar in Dayton. This is unbecoming of the country. The President of United States, you know, should not be blamed for you know these individual killers.”
Brazile goes on to express concern about the tone, culture, and values of Americans, especially our kids. She makes excellent points. It is about values. We talk about culture almost every day. The decline in morality. The pushback against decent behavior. The compulsion to accept everything or else you are a bigot or a hater.
“These are children who are committing these murders, children. 19, 21, 22, children,” Brazile said. “We need to set a tone for our kids for our future for the values that we share as Americans. And you know, we like these gotcha questions. Hey are you a racist or you … I don’t like that.
Having helped fix a Democrat Presidential primary, we could easily question Donna’s values. And I’m not sure we can expect to see much from the left to improve the conversation alongside the multiculti narrative (and TDS), but I appreciate Ms. Brazile going on the record and saying that Donna doesn’t like it.
Neither do I. So, what do we do about that? And is the answer from Democrats going to default to more Government, civilian disarmament, and higher taxes?
