Two shootings, two shooters, both likely sharing the common threads of mental illness and political radicalization largely created by a far-left media and self-absorbed culture.
Yet, only the one shooter in El Paso has so far received the vast bulk of media coverage because an alleged manifesto left by him mentions race and immigration as being motivating factors. (The media left out his anti-corporation and radical environmental views in their coverage because those items directly complicate their narrative that the tragedy is somehow President Trump’s fault—a bizarre and dangerous misrepresentation if ever there was one.)
But what of the shooter in Dayton, Ohio? Why no mention of his socialist views, his support of candidates like Elizabeth Warren, and his hatred of President Trump?
Check out this profile of the shooter via Heavy:
“On social media, the suspect’s biography started to emerge. On his Twitter page, reviewed by Heavy, he described himself as “he/him / anime fan / metalhead / leftist / i’m going to hell and i’m not coming back.” He wrote on Twitter that he would happily vote for Democrat Elizabeth Warren, praised Satan, was upset about the 2016 presidential election results, and added, “I want socialism, and i’ll not wait for the idiots to finally come round to understanding.” The Greene County Board of Elections lists his party as “Dem.”
Other emerging details point to the shooter’s affiliation with the socialist Antifa terror group. Initial reports indicated the shooter was wearing all Antifa black at the time of the shooting spree.
To date, very little of the above the details have been shared by the far-left Establishment Media.
So far it has been President Trump who remains the voice of reasoned compassion following these dual tragedies by pointing out that mental illness is likely at the root cause of both shootings. America has become overly medicated, overly stimulated, and lacking in the kind of common sense and basic values that will inevitably lead to yet more similar tragedies.
