Peter Thiel’s losing streak is up. I don’t agree with everything the man endorses, and I don’t think he agrees with everything he endorses, but JD Vance and Blake Masters are going to change the entire game.
Masters is better than Vance, frankly. Masters is woke on Uncle Ted, he’s married to a white women with sons despite some possibly questionable mannerisms, and now he’s dropping the red pills we all wanted to hear: the truth about the root of “America’s gun violence problem.”
Blake Masters, a Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate in Arizona who was recently endorsed by former President Donald Trump, said on a podcast this year that “Black people, frankly” are to blame for America’s gun violence problem.
“We do have a gun violence problem in this country, and it’s gang violence,” Masters said on “The Jeff Oravits Show” in April. “It’s gangs. It’s people in Chicago, St. Louis shooting each other. Very often, you know, Black people, frankly. And the Democrats don’t want to do anything about that.”
Masters also claimed Democrats “are weak on crime” and “don’t like the Second Amendment” because “it frankly blocks a lot of their plans for us.”
There are three separate issues here:
- Blacks are the ones doing the shooting
- Democrats don’t want to talk about the blacks
- The blacks fit into a plan that the Democrats have for America
The last one is really the most important.
But Masters – who I am now calling “Master Masters” – didn’t stop there.
During the same podcast, when asked what he thought about President Joe Biden’s Supreme Court nominee Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson, the first Black woman confirmed to the court, Masters said she was “a horrible pick” and that she was an “affirmative action candidate.”
Masters did not immediately return a request for comment Tuesday.
Masters has promoted Trump’s false claims that the 2020 election was stolen. He has also repeatedlyechoed the “great replacement theory” — a white supremacist conspiracy theory that there is a plot to diminish the influence of white people in the U.S. — by baselessly claiming that Democrats want to grant amnesty to thousands of immigrants in order to “make them voters.”
Imagine calling that a “baseless claim.” Democrats are constantly claiming that they want to give all of these illegal Mexicans voting rights. They’ve been trying to do this for decades.
Remember the “Gang of Eight”?
But note – please, I implore you to note – they did not claim that Master Masters’ statements about the blacks being at the root of the gun violence epidemic was a “baseless claim.” No one wants to touch that one. And the media didn’t even bring it up until now – months after the podcast was recorded.
No one in the media wants to have that argument, because someone is going to start waving around FBI crime statistics that show that blacks – who are 13% of the population – do 50% of violent crime, and in some cities, well over 80% of gun crime.
