Gov. Pritzker Falsely Calls Mass Shootings “Uniquely American” a Day After Mass Shooting in Copenhagen

The only American Exceptionalism that lefties like J.B. Pritzker believe in is that America is uniquely awful and evil.

Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D) pointed to the “uniquely American” problem of gun violence in the wake of Monday’s deadly mass shooting at an Independence Day parade in his state, which left at least six people dead.

“It is devastating that a celebration of America was ripped apart by our uniquely American plague,” Pritzker said in a speech Monday evening from Highland Park.

“It’s the Fourth of July, a day for reflection on our freedoms,” he said. “Our founders carried muskets, not assault weapons, and I don’t think a single one of them would have said that you have a constitutional right to an assault weapon with a high-capacity magazine."

Our founders also used printing presses, not the internet. They did however own artillery.

Anyway, Copenhagen would like a word about that "uniquely American" problem.

Danish police believe a shopping mall shooting that left three people dead and four others seriously wounded was not terror-related, and said Monday that the gunman acted alone and appears to have selected his victims at random.

Copenhagen chief police inspector Søren Thomassen said the victims — a 17-year-old boy and a 17-year-old girl, both Danes, and a 47-year-old Russian man — were killed when the gunman opened fire on Sunday afternoon in the Field's shopping mall, one of Scandinavia's biggest.

Four other people were treated for gunshot wounds — two Danish and two Swedish citizens — and were in critical but stable condition, Thomassen said. Several other people received minor injuries as they fled the shopping mall, he added.

And then there was the Islamic terror attack in Oslo in which two were killed and eight wounded. That was fairly recent. 

I'd say that electing rich fat leftists like Pritzker who hate us is uniquely American, but the Europeans do that too.
