In 2013, while the police were pursuing suspects of the Boston Marathon Bombing, Bernie Sanders’ speechwriters said, “Let’s hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American.” This clearly shows that the left is looking to make everything a race problem in order to gain political support. However, if they want the support of the public they should not be focusing so much on the person who committed the crime as they should be on the victims. The speechwriters should be writing speeches that condemn the actions of criminals and express solidarity and sympathy for the victims and their families. Instead, Bernie’s speechwriters wanted to turn a catastrophic and heart-wrenching event into a political statement. As we now know, the bomber was not white or American, and thus, the speechwriters were not able to carry out their act of coldheartedness.
