Democratic Socialist Governor Roy Cooper, taking his marching orders from the Biden Central Committee, has jumped to the conclusion that the Atlanta slaughter of 6 Asians of the 8 massage therapists slain was a racially motivated Hate Crime, when there is no concrete evidence to support such.

Ironically, Democratic Socialist Cooper was once the NC Attorney General, and while he was abysmally bad at his job then, the irony that this Democratic Socialist Governor would jump to the Hate Crime Racial motif is not only amazing, but stupid now.
