The Liberal Drama-Queens’ hysteria over Hillary’s defeat has taken a very ugly turn. This is really unacceptable and disgusting:
Via Heat Street.
President-elect Donald Trump and Dylann Roof, the 22-year-old who was found guilty Thursday on 33 charges related to the murder of nine black churchgoers in South Carolina, are “brothers in white resentment,” according to Slate.
Slate political correspondent Jamelle Bouie draws a parallel between Trump’s remarks while announcing his run for president on June 16, 2015 — “The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everyone else’s problems” — and the racist rantings Roof published before committing mass slaughter on June 17, 2015….
“Indeed, when read together, Trump’s announcement and Roof’s manifesto offer a duet in racial grievance,” Bouie writes…..
“Trump did not cause Roof,” Bouie writes. “But their temporal proximity reveals thematic connections between the two.”
Roof’s crime is so monstrous that it may rankle to put him on the same continuum as Trump. But to see both with clear eyes is to see the link between demonization and aggression, between Trump’s rhetoric, simmering with menace, and the wave of harassment, intimidation, and outright violence that followed his victory. It’s to see both Donald Trump and Dylann Roof as heralds of the darkest forces in American life, to see their common heritage in a rising tide of white identity and white nationalism….
But Slate is not even original in their idiocy.
Univision pulled the same stunt last year:

Hillary relaunched her campaign on June 13, 2015. From a practical time line, it would make greater sense that that was inspiration rather than one day before. But then maybe a butterfly flapped its wings wrong. Makes more sense.
