Additionally, from the time he was about four, Roof and his sister were raised by Roof's father, Bennett Roof, and their stepmother, Paige Hastings. In 2008, when Roof was 14, Bennett and Paige went through a bitter divorce. According to the Washington Post, "Hastings, accused her husband of being controlling and physically abusing her, according to court records." Around the same time, young Dylann dropped out of school.
According to the UK Daily Mail, "Dylann, who was then 15, began to skip classes, did not finish high school and became unemployed - living ‘on and off’ with his father while he spent his days taking drugs and playing video games." Of course, as usual, in spite of this, the left insists that Roof killing nine Christian worshipers inside their church is the fault of conservatives.
The former chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, Democrat James Clyburn, told NBC's Chuck Todd, "I have been saying for some time now that my friends in the Congressional Black Caucus will tell you, I've been saying to them that there's this rightward drift in the country that I think is going too far. And people get emboldened by all of this."
As I've said recently and more than once,
How ironic and backwards is it that the politics of those who tell us that children in the womb aren't really human, humans with a penis and the Y-chromosome aren't really men, white is black, the criminals are the good guys and the police the bad guys, marriage is not the union of one man and one woman, student loans don't have to be repaid, blizzards are evidence for global warming, and who has given us funding for blasphemous art, the removal of school prayer, the removal of the Ten Commandments, and constitutional rights for pornography, now tells us it's the right’s fault when a deranged young man goes on a killing spree? I submit to you that the evil deeds of Mr. Roof are much more a product of progressive values and influences than conservative ones.
And instead of guns, the most common elements of the worst among us are broken homes and sexual deviancy. One reason liberals can’t stand to hear such information is that it defies a government solution. The left would much rather rant against firearms and seek legislation to restrict them.
Additionally, liberals in the United States have been complicit in the breakdown of the family and the spread of sexual immorality. Whether divorce, fornication, marriage, prostitution, pornography, homosexuality, and so on, for decades now, in the name of “sexual freedom,” liberals have called what is evil good, and what is good evil. They have preached, promoted, and even passed legislation in defense of these "values."
What's more, as noted by a few in the conservative media, the ten most violent cities in the U.S. are all led by democrats. As most would deduce by the use of common sense, (but I’ll provide you with the data anyway) large U.S. cities in general are significantly more violent that rural areas. According to CDC data, nearly 60% of gun homicides in the U.S. occur in the 62 cities of the country’s 50 largest metro areas.
Of course, the political machine in most every large U.S. city is dominated by democrats and each of the 12 largest U.S. cities are led by democrats.
It is really uncanny. Never allowing a crisis to go to waste, virtually every time one of these sin-sick killers goes on a spree, liberals just can't seem to help themselves when it comes to blaming conservatives and holding themselves up as having the political answers that the country needs. Yet almost always the murderers are the product of liberal "values."
