One of the rare conservative representatives from California has wasted no time deflecting conversation about today’s shooting at the YouTube headquarters in his home state to people of color.
Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher declared, with no evidence to support his claim, that an “illegal immigrant” was likely behind the 58th mass shooting on U.S. soil in 2018.
Blatant racism wasn’t the only problem with Rohrabacher’s inane comment. News of the shooting broke as he was a guest on a Fox Business segment, with the intention of discussing his opposition to sanctuary cities.

“You were going to discuss with me ‘sanctuary cities’ and the sanctuary state movement, and it fits right into what you’re talking about right now. Would anyone be surprised? …Would anyone right now listening to you think, ‘Well, this certainly wouldn’t be an illegal immigrant there.’ Well, it could be. Everybody knows that it could be.”
Rohrabacher is no stranger to unfounded statements. Last year, he attempted to downplay the murder of Heather Heyer in Charlottesville by claiming the left was manipulating civil war re-enactors.
Thankfully, the conservative buffoon has a tough race ahead of him in uber blue California this November. Hopefully he and his ravenous conspiracy theories meet their demise in the voting booth.
