As Twitchy reported Thursday evening, illegal immigrant Jose Ines Garcia Zarate was found not guilty of murder or manslaughter in the 2015 shooting death of Kate Steinle in San Francisco.
Not surprisingly, a new makeshift memorial to Steinle soon appeared on Pier 14. As The Washington Post reported in its “Morning Mix” Sunday:
Back at Pier 14 in San Francisco, where Steinle was shot in 2015, tall and short white candles were lined up neatly around and on a wooden bench. A picture of a smiling Steinle is taped on a white poster and surrounded by handwritten messages.
“You’re not here because somebody who wasn’t supposed to be was,” one wrote.
Right below Steinle’s picture: “Build the Wall.”
The memorial was created by white nationalists, according to local media reports.
Well, apparently white nationalists were the only ones upset by the verdict, don’t you know. Check out this tweet linking to the story:

“White nationalists angered by Mexican immigrant’s acquittal.” Oh, and pretty much the rest of the country as well.
So we are going to ignore the fact he is illegal, and just assume everyone upset is white, and are all nationalists? Pretty damned racist, WaPo. Pretty damned racist on several levels! https://t.co/BOWp2bVIy6

Funny, I seem to recall the verdict striking a nerve with all sorts of people. The "white nationalist" part is all in your head. https://t.co/3kyyBd0FN0

New narrative. Anyone mad about this verdict is full of hate. https://t.co/3p2WEduUdD

It has to be because we're all racists, right? It can't possibly be due to the fact that this guy was deported 5 times and killed an innocent young woman in cold blood. You people are pathetic. https://t.co/DUbQ2gTvai

If you want to get ready for my @townhallcom column dropping tonight on why we hate the press, just review this scummy headline.
They really wrote that, and on purpose. They deserve all the contempt they get ? https://t.co/ka3BGghYpl

MSM doesn’t even try to mildly disguise their fake news and bias anymore. https://t.co/LeMqQ5XpTD

Let me correct your garbage article/headline @kristinegWP.
People of all races are mad that an ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT criminal murdered Kate, and thanks to liberal San Francisco, he got away with murder. https://t.co/p4hKe6Sncb

You don’t have to be a white nationalist to be angered at such a blatant miscarriage of justice. https://t.co/PxpaqMNdLr
