How come the left hasn’t uttered a word about gun control in relation to Jose Ines Garcia Zarate? They’ve told us a lot about Zarate thus far:
– That he was just a poor fellow from south of the border looking for a better life in our nation of immigrants.
– That he was here doing the jobs Americans just wouldn’t do.
– That, educationally speaking, he operated at about the third grade level.
– And that he was minding his own business, looking for work in the restaurant industry, when a gun appeared out of nowhere. With essentially an eight-year old’s mind trapped in his adult body, he decided to shoot at endangered species and in the process that’s how Kate Steinle lost her life.
Not a single member of #Enough from Louis Farrakhan and Linda Sarsour on down to 9th graders bumbling about in traffic has held up Steinle as a stage prop in their continuance of Barack Obama’s fundamental transformation of America. Odd isn’t it? One would think the Resist, Insist, Persist, Enlist crowd would be all about it.
Maybe they’ve kept quiet about Kate Steinle because they know that digging into the details of her murder disrupts their narrative. We’re supposed to believe that everyone illegally living and working in America, by virtue of their immigration status, is somehow the moral superior to those of us with legal citizenship. Zarate kind of wads up the pages of that narrative and throws them in the circular file where they belong.
With Zarate’s moral stature reduced to that shared among us mere mortals, the left is forced to answer some uncomfortable questions about other narratives:
– How is it equitable to accept Zarate in America as an ILLEGAL immigrant when there are individuals from around the world seeking a better life in America the LEGAL way?
– If Zarate was doing jobs Americans just wouldn’t do, it follows he was working for minimal wages and in some cases may have been paid under the table. That makes Zarate little more than a slave or indentured servant. Is it right to allow employers to treat workers this way?
– Aside from near slave labor, what does a man with a third grade education have to offer the American economy?
– Do endangered species matter or not?
– With San Francisco specifically — and California broadly — all but gun free zones, how come Zarate randomly found one in a public place?
Kate Steinle by contrast was college educated and employed by a major medical equipment manufacturer in the San Francisco bay area. Unlike Zarate, she lived in San Francisco legally and probably paid more than her fair share in taxes to fund any number of local and state programs designed to help the hordes of men with third grade educations from places south of the border. While her position regarding endangered species has never been made public, 99.9% of Americans don’t support randomly shooting at them near Pier 14 in San Francisco. It is conceivable then that had Kate Steinle randomly found a gun the way Zarate did, she wouldn’t have decided to amuse herself by shooting at wildlife near the Embarcadero.
Allegedly, Zarate did, out of the blue, find such a gun and in the process of playing with it killed Kate Steinle. The left, with their eight-year-old intellects, to date refuse to draw Steinle into their gun control agenda. #Enough indeed.
