Horror author Stephen King has become known for his leftist politics.
King is a critic of President Donald Trump and other Republicans.
But King took his views too far when he talked about one tragic death in an awful way.
Last month, Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts went missing, and a big search began.
Unfortunately, Tibbetts was found dead.
People mourned the loss, but the story began to shift once the identity of the killer came to light.
An illegal alien from Mexico named Cristhian Rivera confessed to the crime and led police officers to her body.
At a recent rally, Trump issued condolences to Tibbetts’s family and mentioned the issue of illegal crossings.
The Jackals Move
The left would’ve ignored the story, but it had already become big news.
Since leftists want open borders, they had to shift the blame from the illegal alien.
Famed author Stephen King was happy to do it. King referred to the Las Vegas shooting of 2017 to point out that an American killed more people.
Mollie Tibbetts may well have been killed by an undocumented alien, and that’s a terrible thing. But we might remember that Stephen Craig Paddock was an American citizen. He killed 58.

King’s comment is awful. Just because a gunman killed more people a year ago doesn’t change what happened to Tibbetts.
This isn’t the first time King has made statements about shooting deaths and gun control.
As previously reported by Off The Wire, King is a big gun grabber.
King wasn’t the only liberal to offer a tone-deaf response to Tibbetts’s tragic death. Senator Elizabeth Warren jumped in.
Warren’s response to the Tibbetts’ murder showed the coldness of the left toward deaths they can’t use for political gain.
Warren used Tibbetts’ death to rail against the policy of child separations, which was decided by the liberal Ninth Circuit Court Of Appeals.
CNN guest Symone Sanders claimed the killer’s legal status didn’t matter. “Toxic masculinity” was to blame.
Illegal Immigration Is a Problem
Leftists love to deflect from big issues in order to focus on small issues.
For example, they will ignore inner city crime in Chicago, but will focus on the rare instances of police shootings of unarmed black suspects.
As King said, an American committed the sick mass murder in Las Vegas. But it’s impossible to know who’s going to commit such an awful act.
In the case of Tibbetts, her killer should not have been in the country.
Leftists point out that immigrants commit crimes at a lower rate than native-born Americans.
Fist, this combines legal and illegal immigration. Nearly one-third of all federal prisoners are illegal aliens.
There’s no reason for America to bring in criminals. Republicans need to push for immigration reform so events like the Mollie Tibbetts’ murder won’t happen again.
