Let’s meet Blake Masters, Bit-Coin enthusiast, Stanford-educated libertarian who somehow loves automated surveillance technology and Peter Thiel’s hand-selected Arizona Republican candidate for Senate:
Tech investor and Arizona Republican Senate hopeful Blake Masters acknowledges that the United States has a gun violence problem. But he also has a theory about why there’s a problem—it’s “Black people, frankly.”
Masters boiled the issue down in an April 11 interview on the Jeff Oravits Show podcast, telling the host that “we do have a gun violence problem in this country, and it’s gang violence.”
“It’s people in Chicago, St. Louis shooting each other. Very often, you know, Black people, frankly,” Masters clarified. “And the Democrats don’t want to do anything about that.”
…A Masters campaign spokesperson did not reply to a request for comment.
Boy, howdy, I bet not!
