Rep. Ilhan Omar and Meena Harris emerge with egg all over their faces after jump to judgment in Colorado shooting
Bigots always judge a racial group by its "least worthy members," to borrow a phrase from Eric Hoffer.
And only fools make assumptions, which, as the saying goes, "makes an ass of -u and -me."
That brings us to Rep. Ilhan Omar.
Ever on the lookout for the means of whipping up racial hysteria, Omar blamed the mass shooting in Colorado on skin color — white skin color — as is her obsession, claiming a perpetrator's whiteness, rather than mental illness, or some kind of issue, was responsible for the mass shooting.

Get rid of whiteness, see, and voilà: paradise follows. Such is the moral pinheadery of Omar.
She wasn't the only one. Remember the zero-talent, child-of-privilege-and-influence niece of Kamala Harris, Meena Harris? The one who got a string of high-level tech jobs with no noticeable impact, annoyed that the government of India, gadded about on Instagram apparently as her principal life work, and attempted to cash in on Kamala Harris's newfound name and fame? I wrote about her here.
She too leaped to judgment about the Colorado shooter, yelling as Omar did that it's all about white men, and she's got a new grievance, or is morally superior or something because of it.
Here's her embarrassing tweet (hat tip: Instapundit):

After that, the scion of privilege deleted her tweet and explained herself away with a racist non-apology, claiming that most spray-shooters are white men, which is demonstrably false — see this link here.

Turns out the shooter was not the dangerous white male of Omar's and Harris's fevered minds.
The miserable creep was a Middle Eastern–origin man, a Muslim, a refugee admitted to the States at a young age from some Middle Eastern region hellhole no one wants to go to, and a raving Trump-hater. He had more in common with Omar, in fact, than all the white males she blamed for the shooting.
Now Omar looks like a boob, because reality has hit her in the face like a wet mop. Nice try, bozo.
Omar's outrage was fake, a cover for her real obsession, which is how to make as much money and win as much power for herself as she can on racial grievance-mongering. Now she stands as a total race-obsessed fraud, one with egg all over her face, deservedly seeing some comeuppance. One hopes that in Congress, they bring this up any time she tries to capitalize for herself on race.
The problem with attributing shootings to race is that the narrative is false, and not just false, but something that never holds. Spray-shooting is a specific thing that some disturbed people are inclined to do, and the shooter's family specifically stated that he seemed mentally ill to them, paranoid, in fact, which might explain the awful deed he did as the investigation winds through. He was out of his mind, and being crazed in that manner is not specific to any race. I'd be curious, in fact, about how much marijuana he ingested as a young man in free-pot Colorado, given that marijuana is a known trigger of schizophrenia, particularly in vulnerable young men, according to an Oxford study, and paranoia is a frequent feature of schizophrenia. We know that the sicko who shot up the Aurora theater several years back was a big-time consumer of marijuana, as was the human garbage in Arizona who shot Rep. Gabby Giffords and killed others, and that might just be an avenue for intelligent inquiry, given the actual pattern of activity seen.
But race...is just racist. That's Omar. That's Meena. The only thing they exposed in this is their own racism, and for that, they should be roundly booed and called out for it for a long, long time.
