Leftists Scramble to Delete Tweets After Falsely Claiming Boulder Mass Shooter Was White

Leftists across Twitter, many of them journalists, scrambled to delete tweets after they falsely claimed the Boulder mass shooter, an Islamist from Syria who reportedly had ISIS sympathies, was “white.”

Earlier today, the gunman was revealed as Ahmad Al-Issa, a migrant from Syria who routinely complained about Donald Trump, “racism” and “Islamophobia” on his Facebook page, which was swiftly deleted.

Other reports also suggest that Al-Issa had ISIS sympathies and had planned to return to Syria.

However, innumerable journalists and other leftist commentators were embarrassed after prematurely claiming that the gunman was white in an effort to amplify their contrived moral panic about “white supremacy.”

“In America, if you’re white, no matter how many people you kill you’ll be taken into custody alive,” tweeted author John Pavlovitz. “We really need to ban angry white guys with guns,” he added before deleting both tweets.

BLM activist Meena Harris also deleted a tweet that screeched, “White men are the greatest terrorist threat to our country.”

In her follow up explanation, Harris said, “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.”

This is obviously an attempt to imply that whites are overrepresented in mass shootings, despite the fact that, according to Statista, “Broadly speaking, the racial distribution of mass shootings mirrors the racial distribution of the U.S. population as a whole.”

Twitter itself also spread misinformation by featuring a trending panel which described the Boulder shooter as a white male.

Another journalist who describes his role as “Debunking misinformation/fake news,” literally spread the same misinformation and fake news.

After claiming that the shooter wasn’t killed by cops because he was white, upon his identity being revealed, Amy Siskind subsequently demanded that people stop talking about it.

Numerous other leftists claimed the shooter was white before his identity was made public.

Others are even doubling down, claiming that Middle Eastern men called Ahmad are white.
