Recent Events Give The Impression Left Wing Reporters Are An Extensive Population In Political Forums

On August 18th of 2019, literally 2 days ago as of the writing of this pieace, the Washington Post publish a story in their Science section titled: Two mass killings a world apart share a common theme: ‘ecofascism’

The article laid out a pretty straight forward fact: the Christchurch shooter and the El Paso shooter shared more ideologically with the left than had been previously stated. The thing they shared with the left is a militant environmentalist ethos. Both men spelled out their environmentalism in their respective manifesto and in some part attributed their environmentalism to the acts they would commit.

These seemingly brushed over facts are something many on the right have tried to point out both in original articles and op-eds, as well as in comment sections to popular websites, such as Mediaite where one of their writers, Tommy Christopher, published a piece on August 17th where Tommy derides republicans for pointing this out.

In the comments section I wrote:

So we have left wingers claiming to have read his manifesto are quoting selectively edited quotes by way of the left wing media. Imagine my shock when they act confounded by the truth of the matter.

In response to my comment a poster with the moniker In_Like_Flynn asked, ” What’s your truth of the matter?”

Normally I wouldn’t have responded to such a retort. It seemed like troll bait. Regardless, I decided to holster my normal snark and answer the man seriously for no other reason than the use of the phrase “your truth.”

Here’s the entirety of my reply to this person.

There is no “my truth.”

There are opinions and then there are the facts.

The fact of the matter is, like the New Zealand shooter’s manifesto, the El Paso shooter’s manifesto was all over the place politically. With both, you could quite literally quote one part of their manifestos and make them out to be an advocate of China or militant environmentalist, or another part to make them seem like xenophobic racists and white identarians.

In my opinion, you only hear about one side of the manifesto, because it’s all part of the intersectional theatrics pushed by left wing democrats these days. The left wing media and democrat politicians only care about the aspect of the story that’s important to them. The part that furthers the narrative white people are in general imbued with privilege and are crypto-racist, if not outright racist.

It’s my opinion, these intersectionalist democrats have a real interest and are actively seeking this narrative any time there’s a shooting that fits a certain paradigm, such as a rando nutcase shooter who wrote a manifesto with no real coherent ideology, which the left wing can mold to fit the narrative. These people have zero interest in the far greater numbers of shootings related to black on black gang violence, insofar as it can’t be pinned on white people… Because the left often asserts, without evidence I might add, that communities outside of the control of the left are the source of weapons used in gang violence.

But in the end, what we’re getting from the news media is a selective reading of these manifestos, and that is a fact!

Disqus: Leaked Memo Shows House Republicans Literally Claiming Trump-Echoing El Paso Shooter Was ‘From the Left’

Now, the commenter in question never replied. I assume I projected the attitude I was immaliable to their arguments and wouldn’t change my mind. It’s a pretty common phenomena in online forums where people spend more time talking past each other than engaging in productive conversation.

Now imagine my surprise when the very next day the Washington Post published a piece the very next day that explores the commonalities of these two shooters I pointed out just the day before.

Don’t get me wrong here. I’m not so narcissistic as to believe I was the genesis of this Washington Post article, because there were many others making this exact same point. What I am saying, though, is this: the timing is awfully convenient.

That leads me to my main point. Having debated politics online for decades, I see a trend, which is that it seems many of the talking points we see embedded in articles from publications such as the Washington Post, had their origins in the anonymous comments sections of sites like Mediaite.

Many news stories seemingly had a life in these online forums long before it was a news story. The best example is the Russian Collusion narrative. Those on the left had pushed this narrative against Trump long before he won the election, and even before Trump won the primary.

Now I don’t present this as fact. It is my opinion, but an informed one to be certain.

The Epoch Times: Missing Man Eaten by His Own 18 Dogs, Say Police

A Texas man who was reported missing months ago was reportedly eaten by his own dogs, it was reported on July 10.

The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office said 57-year-old Freddie Mack was seen last on April 9, and deputies weren’t able to get close to his property in May due to his 18 aggressive dogs, Fox4 reported.

Sheriff’s deputies were able to distract the dogs for a period of time but were not able to find any sign of Mack inside his trailer.

Later in May, deputies used a drone to search the property but couldn’t find him, the Fox affiliate reported.

On May 15, a detective saw a small bone fragment while conducting a search. Days later, they found more bone fragments inside his trailer and shed on his property.

PJ Media: Democratic Congresswoman Caught Sending Staff to Mexico to Coach Asylum-Seekers

According to the National Border Patrol Council’s El Paso chapter and several Customs and Border Protection personnel,  freshman Congresswoman Rep. Veronica Escobar has been sending members of her staff in secret to the Mexican border town of Ciudad Juárez to coach asylum seekers on how to game the system and make it into the U.S.

The Washington Examiner reports that the aides are looking to “find migrants returned from El Paso, Texas, under the ‘remain in Mexico’ policy, then coaching them to pretend they cannot speak Spanish to exploit a loophole letting them to [sic] return to the U.S.”

If republicans had been caught doing this, it would be a major scandal.

Ars Technica: Apple moves Mac Pro production from Texas to China

Left wingers are certain to enjoy this move, but it’s a very bad PR toward America.

Apple is manufacturing the new Mac Pro in China, marking a change from the previous Mac Pro that was made in the US.

Apple made the previous Mac Pro in Austin, Texas, beginning in 2013. But with the new Mac Pro unveiled this month being made in China, Apple is “shifting abroad production of what had been its only major device assembled in the US as trade tensions escalate between the Trump administration and Beijing,” The Wall Street Journal reported today.

“The tech giant has tapped contractor Quanta Computer Inc. to manufacture the $6,000 desktop computer and is ramping up production at a factory near Shanghai,” according to the Journal’s sources. “Quanta’s facility is close to other Apple suppliers across Asia, making it possible for Apple to achieve lower shipping costs than if it shipped components to the US.”
