President Joe Biden announced Monday that he and First Lady Jill Biden would travel to Buffalo, New York, Tuesday to mourn with the community after the horrific race-based massacre there that killed ten and injured three others became.
At a Tops supermarket in the city, the suspected gunman, 18-year-old Payton Gendron of Conklin, New York, opened fire on the store’s mostly black clientele Saturday afternoon, killing several in the parking lot before entering the store and the Act of violence continued rampage.
Gendron reportedly told police that he had planned a violent attack on the black community and allegedly championed white racist and fascist views online.
The heinous attack has left the community and the country reeling. After such tragedies, a presidential visit is often a source of comfort and healing. As such, no one seems to be suggesting that Biden shouldn’t visit Buffalo.
But critics were quick to point out that Biden’s prompt visit to the city smacks of political bias, especially since the president has yet to visit Waukesha, Wisconsin, where another attack that killed people took place late last year.
In that incident, a black convict, Darrell Brooks Jr., who was recently released from prison on questionable terms, allegedly drove his car into a crowd of mostly white people at a Christmas parade, killing six and injuring more than 60 others.
It just so happens that the Buffalo massacre — in which a white man killed innocent black people with guns — fits Biden’s political narrative, while the vile attack in Waukesha did not, critics say.
After the Waukesha massacre, the White House defended Biden’s decision not to visit the city in person, arguing that sending the president to a community “requires a lot of wealth.” Apparently, ample wealth isn’t such a big obstacle this time around.
Daily Wire contributor Matt Walsh called Biden’s refusal to visit Waukesha ‘beyond evil’ given his hasty visit to Buffalo.
So did conservative commentator Candace Owens joined the choir of those who criticize the President and the media say, “Both acts are heinous, but they will not receive the same media coverage … they will exacerbate the Buffalo shooting because white crimes are being committed against black victims.” [are] prefers.”
