There is an odd development in the recent tragic shootings in Atlanta. The police say it wasn’t racially motivated. The killer says it wasn’t racially motivated, but a product of sex addiction. But there are people out there, the usual suspects, who must find white racism in anything and everything. Many of them have taken to broadcast and social media to spew this completely unfounded theory. Tucker Carlson has had enough of it.
Looking into the “massage parlors” that were shot up in the #Atlanta-area. The shooting suspect told investigators he targeted the businesses because of a sex addiction. Politicians and media around the world are reporting this as murderous anti-Asian hate inspired by Trump. pic.twitter.com/WQPI63YeOo

Carlson: “On the afternoon of March 16, police say, a 21-year-old man called Robert Aaron Long walked into a massage parlor outside Atlanta and shot five people. Long then drove to two other massage parlors in the city and shot another four. Of the nine people Robert Long is accused of shooting, two were White, one was Hispanic, and the other six were Asian women. Of those six women, according to the South Korean government, at least four of them were Korean. Police caught Robert Long within hours, as he was driving his Hyundai south on Interstate 75. At a press conference the next day, Captain Jay Baker of the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office explained what happened next.
Baker: ‘The suspect did take responsibility for the shootings. He said that early on, once we began the interviews with him. He claims that these, and as the chief said, this is still early, but he does claim that it was not racially motivated. He apparently has an issue, what he considers sex addiction, and sees these locations as something that allows him to go to these places, and it’s a temptation for him that he wanted to eliminate.’ So the police took a long and detailed statement from Robert Long, and to restate, here’s what they found: Long immediately confessed to the crimes. But while he admitted to committing multiple murders — a death penalty offense in the state of Georgia — Long denied having any racial motivation. Instead, he told police he had a sex addiction and an ‘issue with porn,’ and that he shot up massage parlors in an effort to eliminate his own temptation to visit them.” The cops and the killer say one thing. Leftist liars and race hustlers say another. Not to mention ignoring the sex addiction story.
Carlson: “A competent media might tell us more about this (the addiction). Knowing more facts and rationally assessing them might improve this country. But it’s not the coverage we’re getting. It’s not even close to the coverage we are getting. Instead, the usual liars are describing the massacre in Atlanta as the one thing it apparently wasn’t: A racial attack. ‘White supremacy and hate are haunting Asian Americans,’ CNN confidently announced in a headline. The president of Rice University, David Leebron, had this to say, “The deliberate use of such terms as ‘the China virus’ to foster bigotry has played a significant role,” Leebron intoned, as if he knew that to be true. (He didn’t, because there’s no evidence.) He continued, “Sadly and predictably, this escalation of racially-based hatred has led to violence.” Ah, Trump pulled the trigger. Glad that’s settled. Otherwise you’d actually have to believe the cops and the guy who actually did perpetrated the shootings.
