As we and others reported last week, Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, the illegal immigrant who admittedly shot Kate Steinle to death, was acquitted of murder. Zarate, a seven-time felon who had been deported five times, was only found guilty of a weapons charge. Naturally, this angered pretty much the entire country. But an article at the Washington Post suggests that only “white nationalists” are upset by the verdict.
According to the Post:
White nationalist and alt-right leader Richard Spencer announced on Twitter that he will be at Lafayette Square, just north of the White House, on Sunday afternoon “to demand Trump build #KatesWall.” President Trump has demanded funding for the border wall, but Congress has yet to agree to provide beyond the $20 million allotted for prototypes and related infrastructure.
Spencer is among many on the far right who were angered by the jury’s decision to acquit Garcia Zarate of not only murder, but also lesser charges of involuntary manslaughter and assault with a deadly weapon. Jurors agreed with the defense that the shooting was accidental. The 45-year-old Garcia Zarate, who had previously entered the United States illegally six times and has seven prior felony convictions, was instead found guilty of unlawful possession of a firearm, which carries a sentence of up to three years.
Back at Pier 14 in San Francisco, where Steinle was shot in 2015, tall and short white candles were lined up neatly around and on a wooden bench. A picture of a smiling Steinle is taped on a white poster and surrounded by handwritten messages.
“You’re not here because somebody who wasn’t supposed to be was,” one wrote.
Right below Steinle’s picture: “Build the Wall.”
The memorial was created by white nationalists, according to local media reports. Tucked in one of the bouquets of flowers on the bench is a card from a group called the Bay Area Alt Right.
The Post promoted the article with this tweet:

Notice, if you will, how the Post’s headline fails to mention that the shooter is in the country illegally…
Media analyst Mark Dice translated the headline:
That pretty much sums it up.
So we are going to ignore the fact he is illegal, and just assume everyone upset is white, and are all nationalists? Pretty damned racist, WaPo. Pretty damned racist on several levels! https://t.co/BOWp2bVIy6

So you have to be racist to be mad about an injustice . Looks like you got the verdict you wanted which ignored the law
What does that say about you

It actually says quite a lot. Keep in mind this is the same Washington Post that broke the allegations against Judge Roy Moore after endorsing his opponent. It’s also the same Washington Post that suggested people with short hair are white nationalists.
Unbelievable insanity…???????????????? https://t.co/JjcDu7crSI

Sadly, it’s very believable.
Incidents like this, by the way, are the reason we refer to the so-called “mainstream media” as the “Democrat-media complex.”
