Biden and his administration – filled with professional social justice warriors – are currently heading to Atlanta, Georgia, to speak with leaders of the Asian communities there, after a shooting spree targeting three massage parlors. It was tragic. Eight people died because our society doesn’t value human life.
Predictably the left turned this into a race issue. The man pulling the trigger was white, and therefore, this must be a race-related hate crime committed by a white supremacist. The problem is that this wasn’t ‘race’ that caused the man to commit these crimes.
The issue isn’t race, says FBI Director Wray. In an interview with NPR, Director Wray said, “So obviously, it’s a heartbreaking incident, and it hits particularly close to home for me since I consider Atlanta home. … The FBI is supporting state and local law enforcement, specifically APD, the Atlanta Police Department, and the [Cherokee County] Sheriff’s Office. So we’re actively involved but in a support role.”
Director Wray continued saying, “And while the motive remains still under investigation at the moment, it does not appear that the motive was racially motivated.”
So if it wasn’t racially motivated, what is the issue here?

The man arrested for the murders said he committed the crime spree because “it’s a temptation for him that he wanted to eliminate.” He admitted that he has a “sex addiction” and frequently used these “massage parlors” to feed his sex habit. Six of the eight victims were of Asian descent. If this were race-related, one would expect all eight victims to be of the same race.
Several inconsistencies point to the real reason he murdered eight people, and shocking, I know, but it has nothing to do with the race narrative – the man has mental health issues, and our society sells women as commodities.
The New York Times reported Sung Yeon Choimorrow – the executive director of the National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum, said, “This was what we had feared all along – we were afraid that the objectification and the hypersexualization of our bodies were going to lead to death.”
Duh. Sex sells. “Women’s empowerment” only switched it from men selling our bodies for their pleasure to tricking women into selling themselves. I’ll be the last person to pretend to be Doris Day, but there is a difference between the “wild hairs” of my youth and the pressures girls are under these days.
Social media was only beginning during my senior year of high school. Our parents were constantly playing catch-up and had no way of knowing how to protect us. There wasn’t anyone telling us that our pictures on the internet were forever or those stupid things we posted in our early teens – without understanding their meaning – would cause us to lose job opportunities in our thirties. And boy, I wish there had been.
I can’t think of a single show or movie I watched – mainly on the Disney channel or MTV – that didn’t frame sex as a highly flighty action completed by singles. Nothing to write home about. Women were always portrayed as using their sexuality as a way to obtain power.
Why act shocked that a man would form an addiction to something that is wildly available and habit forming? We told society that women should use their bodies however they want. Then we told women they want to use their bodies for sex. Women’s bodies were no longer a temple to be desired from afar but rather given out like fries at a fast-food restaurant.
Today there are almost unlimited ways in which one can sell their body online, constantly denigrating their self-worth. We’ve seen headline after headline of teachers, moms, and police officers leaving their respectable jobs to sell themselves on sites like OnlyFans – where people pay for private access to get nude pictures and videos.
Where has Sung Yeon Choimorrow been when conservative mothers stood up and said enough is enough?
These eight victims in Atlanta were murder because our society is rotten to its core. It’s not the ‘white supremacy’ boogeyman that the media are so quick to use as their tool to further our societal divide. No, society sold this man a lie about the value of human life, and these women were sold a lie about themselves. They believed this lie and were murdered for it.
