Facts are funny things and refuse to go away just because they don’t fit in a narrative. While there is no current information on the shooter’s motive, the facts are that Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, the homicidal maniac who looks to have perpetrated the Boulder mass murder, was born in Syria and despises former president Donald Trump.
Thus all the ready made leftist lines about crazy white men, many spewed forth before any info was known, now look racist and crazy. Also the Trump Did It fallback line won’t work either because Alissa proclaimed his hatred for Trump on social media.
My best guess is the left will eventually say Alissi was driven to it by Islamophobia brought on by, you guessed it, Trump. But this puts the left in the same position they were in after the 2016 mass shooting at a night club in Orlando.
The left had to pick between mourning the innocent club patrons or engaging in what they call “Islamophobia”, i.e.- criticizing Muslims in any way for any thing. They face the same dilemma now. A Muslim gunman or innocent shoppers? The left will find a way to side with the gunman.
“He would talk about him being Muslim & how if anybody tried anything, he would file a hate crime…"

FNC: ‘More details are emerging the day after a 21-year-old identified as the alleged suspect killed 10 people, including a police officer, during a mass shooting at a Boulder, Colorado, grocery store this week. The suspect allegedly bought the firearm used in the attack six days earlier, and was known by former classmates to be short-tempered and paranoid, according to reports and an arrest affidavit released Tuesday. The document did not disclose where Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, from the Denver suburb of Arvada, bought the Ruger AR-556 but stated he did so on March 16. Just six days later, he allegedly shot multiple people outside the King Soopers on Table Mesa before entering the store and continuing the killing spree inside.
“Alissa was booked into Boulder County Jail on Tuesday after receiving treatment for a gunshot wound. He has been charged with 10 counts of first-degree murder…On a Facebook page purported to belong to Alissa, he wrote messages that criticized former President Donald Trump’s response to immigration and refugees, allegedly writing ‘Trump is such a d—.’ He also purportedly complained about not having a girlfriend and shared wrestling photos.” This is who the left will protect. This is where their ideas lead.
