So a white guy shot and killed 10 people outside of a Boulder, Colorado, grocery store that included the death of one police officer. The tragedy was immediately a “crazy white guy” story in the media.
But there’s only one problem. The shooter wasn’t white. Ends up the shooter was Ahmad Al Aliwi Al-Issa, a 21-year-old Syrian born man. Hmmm?
The actual story is a Muslim background immigrant known by the FBI and with mental health issues was the trigger man. The media could have addressed mental health or immigration or potential terrorism, but all the media proclaimed was a white guy mass shooter account.
Of course, the left, including President Biden, once they realized the shooter wasn’t a white male and the shooting no longer fit their narrative immediately pivoted to defending his desire for banning assault rifles and high capacity magazines. The left didn’t even apologize for what they said about white males. Before we go trampling on the Second Amendment, it would be nice to determine what really happened.
The media seems to pick a story they like and go with it. The growing attitude seems to be, “Don’t confuse me with the facts. I have my mind made up already.”
