Gabby Giffords’ Americans for Responsible Solutions recently advised the rest of the civilian disarmament industrial complex to avoid waving the bloody shirt. Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun agitpropagators at The Trace didn’t get the memo. Or chose to ignore it. Why wouldn’t they? Reduce the antis’ arguments to facts and rational thought and they ain’t got game. Anyway, surprise! The Trace has added race card playing to the usual bloody shirt waving.
Check this out from their email blast:
A man is accused of fatally shooting a woman after he ran a red light and crashed into her car. Matthew Ryan Desha, 29, has been charged with killing 53-year-old Deborah Pearl, whom he shot after an accident in Solon, Ohio on Saturday morning, Cleveland.com reported. Desha, who is white, reportedly ran a red light and hit Pearl’s car, causing his Jeep to flip several times. He emerged from the wreckage holding a rifle, and a witness said Pearl, who is black, had her hands up when he fired [killing Pearl]. Desha was out on bond for his second concealed weapons violation at the time of the crash.
Did Mr. Desha shoot Ms. Pearl because she was black? If Mr. Desha had been black and Ms. Pearl white, would The Trace have reported this story differently? Or is The Trace just another left-leaning media outlet ready, willing and able to stoke racial hatred to further its agenda? Perish the thought.
