Obama Boulder statement: Shootings product of ‘disaffection, racism, misogyny’

[Ed. – Ever helpful.  The scourge of disaffection must be eradicated.]

Former President Barack Obama on Tuesday released a statement on the Boulder shooting saying recent killings are being driven by “disaffection, racism and misogyny” — despite Colorado officials identifying the gunman who slaughtered 10 inside a grocery store as a Syrian-born immigrant.

Authorities have not alleged a motive for suspect Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, 21, but his brother told the Daily Beast he was “very anti-social” and suffered from paranoia and possible mental illness.

Obama linked mass shootings to discrimination in a message posted to Twitter calling for new gun control laws after the Boulder, Colo., shooting Monday and the murder of eight last week at massage parlors in the Atlanta area.
