“Apparently,unbeknownst to me, my family and anyone who knows me, discussing looting now makes you a racist,” he said, during an appearance on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Monday night. “Not unusual at all from the left. Pretty much everything makes you a racist, which has rendered the term nearly meaningless in polite, political company anymore.”
Bongino said that there are several reasons the left attempt to make excuses for looters.
“The first (reason) is a real easy one,” he told host Tucker Carlson. “These are hack, phony frauds who have no lives. Their entire livelihood is based on click bait.”
But the other reason is that many on the left believe that “it’s society’s fault. If we were a little more socialist and Communist, or better planners, we wouldn’t have this problem.”
He said that, to those people, the issue is not the looters, but the “evil business owners” who did not give the shoes away before the storm hit.
It was near two weeks ago that an ABC reporter was attacked on social media for informing police of looters in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. But in that case, the people were raiding a grocery store for food to survive the storm.
In this case video showed that the people looting during Hurricane Irma were stealing sneakers from a shoe store.
And they quickly learned that the police in Florida were not playing around.
