It wasn’t a broken immigration system that killed Mollie Tibbetts: It was toxic masculinity

In case you’re unclear about who the victim is in the murder of co-ed Mollie Tibbetts, the Left has begun clarifying the matter. One of the most stunning, if predictable, examples of liberal rationalization was the pathetic song and dance performed yesterday by Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who reminded us how rough life is for the children separated from their “families” on the border. If Warren had stopped to think before answering, it might have occurred to her that this latest victim has now been separated from her own family, and not only for a week or two.

What other excuses have filtered in? People magazine quotes Cristhian Bahena Rivera’s defense attorney Allan Richards, who describes his client as an “all-American boy” with no prior record. The Associated Press meantime reports that according to Rivera’s employer, he was “a good employee who showed up on time to take care of the cows and got along well with his co-workers.”

If you’re not quite ready to fête Rivera with a ticker tape parade down New York City’s “Canyon of Heroes,” at least hear out another of his defenders, CNN commentator Symone Sanders. Sanders, who in 2017 urged caution about calling the torture of a special needs white man by four Chicago teens a “hate crime,” weighed in on the Tibbetts murder on Twitter:

Brilliant! Clearly, it never dawned on Sanders that if Rivera had been prevented from sneaking across the southern border from Mexico, his “toxic masculinity” would have been unable to harm Mollie Tibbetts.
