It’s Very Simple, it Now Does Not Fit Their Narrative. But the Bigger Problem is What All Americans are Ignoring…
The media became suddenly silent about the shooting at the synagogue in Poway California after we found out that it was an off-duty border patrol agent who stopped a massacre form happening. The media knew that they could not win that particular narrative battle, so they halted the 24 hour segments that we usually see when something like this happens.
The same media has also become suddenly silent about Tuesday’s shooting at the STEM School in Highlands Ranch, CO. Why? Because one of the suspects was transgender, the other was gay, and both openly voiced their hatred towards Christians and Trump. The media can not win this narrative battle, so they went effectively silent yet again.
This happens often for breaking stories when we don’t know the suspect yet. If the story is big enough, it will get national news attention until we find out if the suspect does or does not support the mainstream narrative.
For the stories that happen quickly where we know the suspect almost immediately, it is a different story. Like the black man who walked into a white church in Tennessee and shot multiple people in revenge for the Dylann Roof attack, or the story of the black man who said he wanted to kill all white people and proceeded to kill 6 white people. The media just doesn’t report on these stories at all. They know right away and up front, that these stories have zero potential to promote more hatred towards white people, Trump, or Christians. They also know they won’t cause riots to breakout that they can cover because white people don’t often riot.
Who Were the Suspects?
The first suspect is Devon Erickson, a gay 18-year-old high school student who has worked as an actor in Colorado. He was identified by authorities as one of the two shooters accused of wounding nine students in a K-12 STEM school located in Douglas County.
The second accused shooter has now been identified as Alec McKinney. You can read about Alec here. Alec is identified in court records as Maya McKinney, but a Denver television station reports that McKinney is transgender and transitioning to male. The judge didn’t allow video or photos in McKinney’s court hearing; Noelle Phillips of The Denver Post reported that McKinney’s lawyer said McKinney goes by Alec and uses the pronoun he.
A friend of both of them wrote on Instagram that Devon “did not do what he did because he’s liberal or to make a statement. He did it due to internal struggles. They’re both struggling with mental health issues and this is a time for awareness. Alec did not do this because he’s trans, but had people supported him in the way that he needed and deserved, he would not have struggled so much that he got pushed over the edge.”
A confirmed motive has not yet been determined by the police but we know that at least one of the shooters expressed disdain for Christians.
Facebook posts reveal that 18-year-old Devon Erickson previously expressed hatred for Christians, according to Heavy.
“You know what I hate? All these Christians who hate gays, yet in the bible, it says in Deuteronomy 17:12-13, if someone doesn’t do what their priest tells them to do, they are supposed to die. It has plenty of crazy stuff like that,” Erickson wrote in one Facebook post several years ago. “But all they get out of it is ‘ewwwwww gays.’”
A day after Election Day in 2016, he shared a video from Seth Myers’ “Late Night” show blasting Trump and groused about Christians in another post two years earlier.
Erickson also shared a pro-Obama post from Occupy Democrats in 2015.
“In just six years I nearly tripled the stock market, cut unemployment in half, ended two wars, cut the uninsured rate in half, brought gas down to $2.75, and cut the annual Bush deficit by two-thirds. Oh, and I got bin Laden,” reads the post, which features a photo of Obama.
