Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, May 17, 2022

As details of the Buffalo mass shooting emerged over the weekend, much of the media focused on the shooter's self-stated motivation: his belief in "great replacement" theory, the racist notion that white Americans are being deliberately replaced through immigration.

... Over at Fox News, however, there was barely any mention of the white gunman's alleged reasoning for opening fire at a supermarket ...

An implicit admission of guilt on the part of Fox news?

You mean to tell me that the shooter's video has not been shown on Tucker/Laura/Squinty Sean? I thought these folks were all about truth. As for the shooter's 180-page screed, will Fox at least post it on their web site, to allow freedom-loving gun lickers the ability to get off?

On a related note, Elon Musk must be looking forward to taking control of Twitter, and allowing maximalist speech like what the shooter produced on the new, improved Twitter...

Odds are, Musk's purchase of Twitter isn't gonna happen. Both TSLA and Twitter share prices have plummeted. Just the last three weeks his $54-a-share deal started to smell vs the current $38 share price for TWTR.

In the same time period (since April 25th), Tesla shares have also fallen from almost $1k to $761. He was going to sell some of those to buy Twitter. And Tesla shareholders aren't thrilled with his focus shifting to Twitter and butting his opinions into the public forum and political scene (Trump's return, etc).

My money is on him opting instead to pay the $1 billion contractual fee to back out of the deal rather than lose $20+ billion and probably a lot more down the road if he went through with the Twitter deal.

Was thinking that as well. Just like his hyper loop, self driving trucks (supposedly available since 2019) and launching thousands of satellites that have to be replaced every 2 or 3 years.

"shrug" the amusing thing is that people are always referencing some kind of "white pages" documents that explain everything he's planning but doesn't have much of anything actually produced.

A lot of hype and not much product to look back to and what there is is over glorified as brilliant and he's got a dude in a white jumpsuit and helmet as evidence of his "progress". ;P

Open Borders is everyone's policy.
Even Trump didn't close the border.

Do you understand this, or do you actually disagree, and think Republicans actually closed the border, because you're actually clueless?

White people were literally imported here and subsidized with free land grants. Doubt you're consistent within that context.

Why is it lefties ALWAYS conflate legal and illegal immigration?

On a few rare moments of honesty certain Democrats have admitted that maximizing the flow of Latinos into this country is good for their electoral success. Any wonder why Biden has taken so many steps to make the Southern border as porous as possible.

Maybe if you referred to them correctly their wouldn't be as much confusion on your part.

Because actually there is no such thing as an illegal person. Immigrant or citizen.

While a person may commit a crime that does not make that person an illegal person.

"Illegal" describes an action. Not a person. You can correctly say illegal immigration.

But not illegal immigrant. So undocumented would be the correct term.

IIRAIRA 96 made 'undocumented immigrant' the legal and official terminology for persons found present in the U.S. with no documentation or legal claim to enter, remain in, or pass through the U.S. Passed by a Republican Congress and signed into law by a Democrat President. Prior to IIRAIRA 96 those persons were legally and commonly referred to as 'illegal aliens'. A significant reason for the change in terminology was that 'alien' more correctly refers to people who have a legal status within the country.

It took Trump a few months to change it back to illegal immigrant.

He just had to repeatedly refer to them as criminals and rapists.

Now there's a "crisis at the southern border."

It's WAY less people now than were entering when I was a BPA in San Diego and Tucson sectors in the 90s and early 00s. Especially the early - mid 90s in San Diego. It was nucking futs. Especially this time of year. it's when all the migrant workers are coming north for the agricultural and construction seasons, plus in the San Diego area it's when the spring rains are heavy and we couldn't maneuver in the border areas, the Broncos would sink to the axles in the sloppy clay/sand.

And what everyone keeps focusing on is the apprehension stats. Which means they were caught. Good job by the men and women in green. The 'gotaway' or 'unapprehended' stats are what tell you how many people successfully entered. And those numbers are way down from when I was part of that agency.

Except that repeating a lie over and doesn't make it so. But it does have an effect because the words of a president matter. Of course the whole point was to radicalize and energize the weak minded white supremacists amongst us.

See "replacement theory" and how Fox News repeated that lie over and over until finally a weak white supremacist's mind broke and he went off on a shooting rampage. Also notice how Fox News is now distancing themselves from it.

But too little too late obviously. The mission was still accomplished.
