Despite the Boulder shooter being an immigrant from Syria named Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, a Twitter commenter declared he would bet his entire salary that the shooter was a “right-wing, MAGA, white male.” He lost.
David Hoffman tweeted: “I’ll bet anyone my salary right now that the shooter in Boulder is a right wing, MAGA, white male.”
One Twitter commenter snarked in response: “You can donate your salary to the victims. I think that is appropriate.” The Post Millennial’s Andy Ngo suggested that Hoffman give his salary to charity.
Hoffman admitted to losing the bet but then doubled down with subjective statistics and the justification of some type of moral high ground: “People certainly get angry when you bring up that most mass shooters in America are white men, but the statistics show that they are. Would’ve lost my salary on this bet, but most times it’s a safe bet that terrorists in America are white males.”

Can I suggest that you donate your salary to a charity?

Hoffman is by no means alone in his progressive sentiments. Another commenter tweeted: “It’s always an angry white man. Always.”
The left’s espoused beliefs do not align with the shooter’s voiced feelings online that were captured in screenshots by various individuals before Facebook took down Alissa’s page.
Alissa is not only a Middle Eastern Muslim; he is also paranoid and frequently accuses others of Islamophobia and racism.

His Facebook page raged against former President Trump, overreaching government control, and he was anti-LGBTQ. But what the media and leftists ran with was that he was an angry, violent, white male which proved to be incorrect.
Twitter seems to have had no problem with the false allegations against white men from verified leftist “blue checks.” Neither does the legacy media.
Take for instance Vice President Kamala Harris’ niece Meena Harris who tweeted on Monday: “The Atlanta shooting was not even a week ago. Violent white men are the greatest terrorist threat to our country.”
She also went on to admit she was wrong and deleted that tweet only to follow it with a “sorry, not sorry” one: “I deleted a previous tweet about the suspect in the Boulder shooting. I made an assumption based on his being taken into custody alive and the fact that the majority of mass shootings in the U.S. are carried out by white men.”

Again, Harris was far from alone in her accusations. And even though the race issued is settled, the charges of white supremacy are inexplicably not. Most of the media is now stating that race does not matter after it was revealed the shooter was Syrian. The allegations of right-wing extremism certainly do not hold up when Alissa’s social media is reviewed by those clever enough to have captured his posts.
The allegations from the left over race were something to behold:
Description: "Police have taken him into custody"
Translation: He was white

Strength to those relatives in Boulder, Colorado who could have been in that grocery store today. 10 people lose their lives; another White male snaps in a bloody massacre, another violent armed White male apprehended alive.

The shooter is was taken into custody.
In other words it was almost certainly a white man (again). If he were Black or Brown he would be dead.

Hoffman’s tweet did not age well instantly. The blowback on Twitter was epic and never-ending:
There’s a gofundme setup for the victims. Now you know where to put your salary
— Beau Colligan (@ColliganBeau) March 23, 2021
Please let us know where you donated your salary as quickly as you jumped on Twitter to spew your ill-informed and bigoted opinion about the shooter! May I suggest donating to Boulder PD?

Are we each going to get your salary or are you going to split it up?
