Democrat Blake Masters, a Republican candidate for US Senate in Arizona sponsored by former President Trump, claims that gun violence is a race-based problem.
In the United States, “we absolutely have a gun violence problem, and it’s gang violence.” “The Jeff Oravits Show” podcast aired Masters’ comments in April, and they were picked up by The Daily Beast this week.
“It’s a shooting spree in Chicago and St. Louis. “You know, Black folks, frankly,” Masters remarked. It’s clear the Democrats have no intention of doing anything about it.
10 African-Americans were shot and killed in Buffalo within weeks following his remarks. During his murdering spree, the suspect, who is white, is said to have targeted African-Americans. The “replacement hypothesis,” a conspiracy theory popularised by conservative media outlets such as Fox News, was also said to be a belief of his, according to reports.
A hypothesis that Democrats are aiming to replace white voters with people of colour via immigration has been pushed by Masters in the same way, according to The Daily Beast, which highlighted.
As Masters told The Associated Press on the “Patriot Edition” podcast, “Obviously, the Democrats, they aim to just change the demography of our country.” For their part, they’re hoping to bring in a completely new group of voters. When this happens, they label you a bigot and a racist.
The primary in Arizona is set for Tuesday, August 2nd.
If the GOP wins the nomination, it will square off against Sen. Mark Kelly (D), a Democrat, in a critical matchup that could determine control of the Senate.
