If a political party must be blamed for the Buffalo massacre, blame the Democrat Party

Op-ed views and opinions expressed are solely those of the author.

After Peyton Gendron carried out the horrific mass shooting at the Buffalo, NY supermarket, Rolling Stone called Peyton Gendron a “mainstream Republican.” Not only was this a vile and desperate effort to blame Republicans for the shooting; but worse, it suggested that Republicans in some way condoned what took place because the ideology that fueled Gendron’s violence and rage was ‘mainstream.’ Of course, this claim was also an outright lie.

The murderer’s manifesto reveals that he was neither mainstream nor a Republican. In fact, the manifesto proves the opposite: many of Gendron’s radical views actually aligned with those of mainstream Democrats.

Gendron, for example, was an avowed anti-semite. He included an anti-Semitic meme attacking Fox News and its owner Rupert Murdoch in his manifesto. Not only is the Republican Party pro-Israel, but Democrats like Rashida Talib (D-MI), Cori Bush (D-MO), and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY) have repeatedly attacked Israel and supported violent pro-Hamas and Palestinian mobs. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), the ungrateful Somalian refugee turned American Congresswoman, even equated the US and Israel to terrorist groups like Hamas and the Taliban.

Anti-semitism is a hallmark of the Democratic Party, not the Republican Party. Anti-semitism flourishes within the ranks of Democrats, not Republicans. 

Payton Gendron also described himself as an “eco-Fascist.” Eco-fascists believe that overpopulation is contributing to the destruction of the environment. This isn’t a Republican belief; it’s another mainstream Democratic Party claim, which has been made by prominent Democrats like Al Gore and Bill Gates.

At the World Economic Forum in Davos in 2014, Gore and Gates both claimed that contraception was essential to controlling the weather, which they said was threatening man’s existence due to climate change. This radical ‘theory’ had previously been promoted by the Communist Chinese.

In 2009, Zhao Baige, vice minister of China’s National Population and Family Planning Commission, celebrated China’s “one-child” policy for reducing China’s population by 400 million people.

Baige, much like Gore and Gates, claimed that the “decline in population growth [had lead] to a reduction of 1.83 billion tons of carbon dioxide emissions in China.”

The left’s favorite newspaper, The New York Times, published an article in 2015 with the headline, “The Unrealized Horrors of Population Explosion.”

Even more recently, in 2019, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY) promoted the same eco-fascist tenet, when she suggested that it may not be ethical to have children in the face of climate change.

Murderer Gendron’s eco-fascist belief that overpopulation was responsible for the imminent inhabitability of the earth didn’t come from Republicans, it came from prominent Democrats and the Communist Chinese.

While Gendron was certainly a racist, claiming in the manifesto that he intended to “kill as many blacks as possible,” he also admitted that he chose to carry out his heinous act of violence in New York because of its strict gun laws. Gendron believed that he would be less likely to encounter someone in New York, who would possess a weapon to slow or stop his attack.

Which political party is responsible for pushing legislation, which makes it more difficult for law-abiding American citizens to purchase and carry firearms? It’s not the Republican Party. No, it’s a Democratic Party policy, which Gendron cited as being responsible for motivating him to carry out the shooting.

Given these facts, which condemn Democrats, it’s no surprise that Democrats are fixated on a different admission in the killer’s manifesto: Gendron’s disdain for ‘replacement theory’ or ‘the great replacement.’

Firstly, ‘replacement theory’ isn’t a theory at all. It’s an active policy objective of the Democratic Party, which Democrats have openly celebrated for years.

Numerous Democrats have publicly acknowledged their intentions to replace white Americans with illegal immigrants, who happen to be brown. A Democrat civil rights attorney named Steve Phillips wrote a 2016 best-seller with the title, “Brown is the New White.” 

In 2015, Joe Biden proudly predicted that starting in 2017, “fewer than 50% of the people in America …will be white European stock,” which Biden said was “a source of our strength.”

Indeed, it’s intended to be a source of Democratic Party strength. As Senator Dick Durbin admitted, the replacement of whites via illegal immigration would ensure that “the demographics of America are not on the side of the Republican Party.”

But despite years of Democrat rhetoric, in which they openly acknowledged their intentions to replace white people in order to change the demographics in America for their political benefit, suddenly the same Democrats are claiming that their ‘replacement theory’ is a far-right conspiracy theory.

“We can replace them,” wrote one New York Times columnist in 2018.

What Gendron did in Buffalo was pure evil, but so too are those, who are blaming Republicans for his actions. If any party is to share responsibility or blame for Gendron’s radicalization, it’s the Democratic Party.
