Fox News’ Gretchen Carlson exploded the double standard involved when blacks commit crimes against whites on Wednesday when she asked a security expert why the televised murders of two whites by a black former colleague are not being labeled as hate crimes.
Carlson pointed out that the gunman, Vester Flanagan, was motivated by race when he killed reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward and injured another white woman. Carlson noted Flanagan’s detailed and racially charged manifesto that was faxed to ABC News after the murders.
“He put the initials of the Charleston church shooting victims on the bullets that he used today, he praised the Virginia Tech mass killer, Columbine High School killers, says he was being attacked for being a gay black man.
“He shot three white people today,” Carlson said. “How is that not a hate crime?”
“No, Gretchen, it’s not,” security expert Paul Viollis tried to explain. “This is quintessential workplace violence from the behavioral profile of the individual to the actions that he displayed, from the manifesto to the time he was terminated in 2013.”
A hate crime is broadly defined as a serious offense with an element of bias, and Carlson wanted to know why those rules don’t apply in this case.
But Viollis used every excuse to make sure the heinous murders would fit into the liberal narrative by not labeling them hate crimes.
He argued that Flanagan, who was motivated by mass murderer Dylann Roof – the maniac who entered a church and massacred nine innocent black worshippers – was an attention seeker and “clearly delusional.”
Was Dylann Roof, who was charged with hate crimes, not only sick, but “delusional?”
Unfortunately, those who control the national narrative will likely stick with another case of “ho-hum, workplace violence,” making up their selective rules as they go along.
