Don’t Blame Video Games, Blame The White-Supremacist-In-Chief For Mass Shootings August 5, 2019

Blame Trump: The White-Supremacist-In-Chief blames video games, the media, and the internet for mass shootings, but says nothing about guns or his racist rhetoric.

Reuters reports:

U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday proposed tighter monitoring of the internet, mental health reform and wider use of the death penalty in response to mass slayings over the weekend that killed 29 people in Texas and Ohio.

In televised remarks made to the nation concerning two separate mass shootings that occurred over the weekend, Trump blamed “the dark recesses of the Internet” and “video games” for the recent violence, declaring

We must recognize that the Internet has provided a dangerous avenue to radicalize, disturb minds and perform demented acts. We must shine a light on the dark recesses of the Internet and stop mass murders before they start.

And:

We must stop the glorification of violence in our society, this includes video games that are now commonplace. It is too easy today for troubled youth to surround themselves with a culture that celebrates violence. We must stop or substantially reduce this and it has to begin immediately.

 However, Twitter quickly rejected Trump’s dishonest and disingenuous response to the mass shootings. Instead, the blame was placed where it belongs, as  #WhiteSupremacistinChief began trending at number one on Twitter.

For example:

For the record: Violent video games don’t cause mass shootings.

For the record: White supremacists love Trump.

Bottom line: Don’t blame video games for the recent mass shootings, blame the White-Supremacist-In-Chief.
