Speaker of the house Paul Ryan wants everyone to remember that the boogeyman the GOP party has been pushing in the past weeks is much more dangerous than actual live terrorism perpetrated in the U.S.

Speaker Ryan was silent on Twitter in the wake of the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood shooting on Friday. But late Sunday night he tweeted:

Ryan’s message was loud and clear: These deaths don’t matter. We want you to be afraid of Muslims, not white men, because that helps further our hateful warmongering cause.

Ryan could at least have offered his sympathy to the families of those who have died, especially because one of the deceased was a police officer who was simply doing his job. Instead, he chose to completely dismiss their sacrifice and instead remind the world who the “real” enemy is.
