Since a man opened fire in a Colorado grocery store Monday night, killing nine shoppers and a police officer, the Left has loudly proclaimed the shooter was a "white man" and "white supremacist." In typical fashion, they didn't wait for the facts.
THREAD: Here are all the idiotic leftists who immediately jumped to politicize the tragic Boulder shooting to push their narrative, only for it all to fall apart when it turns out the shooter is muslim...— Caleb Hull (@CalebJHull) March 23, 2021

That narrative came crashing down Tuesday afternoon when authorities named 21-year-old Ahmad Al Issa as the suspect. He is a refugee from Syria. His Facebook page shows him lamenting President Trump won the 2016 election "because of racism," posting Islamic prayers and accusing Americans of being "Islamophobic." He also has a history of mental health issues.
The suspect in the mass killing is a Muslim immigrant from Syria whose social media posts show an intense hatred of Trump & his administration's immigration policies. https://t.co/lJ5ZaBRcuS— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) March 23, 2021
The #Boulder, Colo. mass shooting suspect who is accused of killing 10 people is an immigrant from Syria. His full name is Ahmad al-Aliwi al-Issa. His online posts show he was a deeply religious Muslim. pic.twitter.com/57vokI5jFz— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) March 23, 2021

Vice President Kamala Harris' niece, Meena Harris, issued this response to the news.
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.— Meena Harris (@meenaharris) March 23, 2021
This is the niece of Kamala Harris blaming white men for pro ISIS Ahmad’s actions.— The Dank Knight ?? (@capeandcowell) March 23, 2021
This racist tweet was deleted but not forgotten. pic.twitter.com/69QyDRty2U
Usually, assumptions about race and crime are called...racism.
So the Boulder shooter was a Muslim guy who was radicalized by the mainstream media’s hate for Trump. This story will disappear so fast it will make your head spin.— Chris Barron ???? (@ChrisRBarron) March 23, 2021
