Mere days after the Atlanta massage parlor shooting, where the media rushed to painted the violence as a “white supremacist hate crime” with no knowledge of the details, an Islamic terrorist has taken the lives of 10 Americans. The media has gone unusually silent as more details have come to light. When they found out the shooter wasn’t White, they preached sympathy for his “victimhood” as an “oppressed minority.” When they found out that all of the victims were Whites, the “hate crime” angle was erased quicker than a Dr. Seuss book. This begs some important questions about media reporting, and thankfully many conservative journalists are speaking out against this double-standard as well.
The identities of all 10 victims police say were shot and killed by Ahmad Al-Issa, the Syrian-born Muslim suspect in the Boulder, Colorado shooting have been released, revealing that all 10 were white. Police have revealed the names of Al-Issa’s alleged victims are 51-year-old Eric Talle, a Boulder police officer, Tralona Bartkowiak, 49; Suzanne Fountain, 59; Teri Leiker, 51; Kevin Mahoney, 61; Lynn Murray, 62; Rikki Olds, 25; Neven Stanisic, 23; Denny Stong, 20; and Jody Waters, 65.
A photo collage of the victims was posted by Andy Ngo, who commented on the apparent double standard of race politics. “I was told a few days ago that the race of victims in shootings matter even if there’s no evidence of race playing a role in the attack,” wrote Ngo, referencing the deadly Atlanta massage parlor shootings, which appear to have been motivated by the suspect’s sex addiction.
While police have yet to release a motive, it seems race may have played a role in Al-Issa’s motive. Al-Issa is a devout Muslim who blames “racism” for President Donald Trump’s 2016 victory over Hillary Clinton.. As a teen, Al-Issa also attacked his classmates, believing they were guilty of racism. He would then reportedly threaten to file hate crime charges against his victims to coerce them into silence. Read more…
