Democratic Strategist Informs Us On CNN That Torturing A Disabled White Person While Saying “F#$# White People” Isn’t A “Hate Crime”

By  | 

Get ready for some mental gymnastics as Democratic strategist Symone Sanders reveals that we should not be so quick to label what happened with the bound and tortured man in Chicago as a hate crime.

If you are unfamiliar with the case, a Facebook Live-stream video was uploaded that showed four black individuals torturing a bound man, who although remains unidentified, is believed to have had down-syndrome.

The video shows the man being physically assaulted by the group, two men and two women, and at one point, one of the aggressors looks to take a knife to the victim’s scalp to cut off a chunk of hair. Afterwards, blood can be seen where the knife went.

The group was yelling obscenity-laced racial slurs, anti-Trump statements, and made fun of the victim’s mental disability.

Chicago police later found the 18-year-old man wandering the streets alone, bloodied and in a daze.

Four suspects have been arrested in connection with the crime.



CNN’s Don Lemon gathered a panel of “great minds” to discuss the case, and Democratic strategist Symone Sanders weighed in with her opinion about whether or not to label this as a hate crime.

“I’m going to say something that’s not going to be very popular…”

The last time we heard a Leftist begin an explanation like this was when Al Gore attempted to justify Barack Obama’s losing of the 1st presidential debate to Mitt Romney.

Gore suggested that Obama’s poor performance was due to him being unadjusted to the high altitude at which the city of Denver sits.  So we know that Sanders is going to give us a doozy of an explanation,

“We cannot callously going about classifying things as a hate crime. Motive here matters. So, was this for the hate of Donald Trump…?”

The investigation is still pending, but according to the Facebook Live-stream video that was uploaded, the group that had bound and tortured the disabled man was yelling, “F**k Donald Trump.” We can reasonably assume that, yes, there is a potential for hatred of Donald Trump involved.

“…Or was this just for pure hate of white people? That matters.” 

Again, in the video, at least one of the four black individuals involved in the torturing of the white disabled man was yelling, “F**k white people!” We can reasonably assume that, yes, there is a potential for hatred of white people involved as well.

Do you think Symone Sanders would be as hesitant to refuse to label this a hate crime if the races were reversed?

Would she say we should not be so callous with labeling things as hate crimes if it had been four white people who kidnapped and tortured a disable black man while yelling anti-Obama sentiments and derogatory statements about minorities?
