FAKE NEWS gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on and as usual, its the Leftist Mainstream media that is to blame.
Local law enforcement in Parkland, Florida has confirmed that there is NO, I repeat, NO connection between the Florida shooter Nikolas Cruz and a “White Supremacist” paramilitary group, but it seems the Leftist mainstream media will stop at nothing to cast blame towards Donald Trump and his base of so-called ‘Racist Deplorables.’
The Anti-Trump MSM will even stoop so low as to use a tragedy involving school children to push their divisive agenda and cast blame on The President.
The Associated Press first reported the claims that allegedly first appeared on 4Chan that the Florida shooter was a “white supremacist”: “BREAKING: Leader of the white nationalist group has confirmed suspect in Florida school shooting was member of his organization.”
The story was then pushed by ABC News, Time Magazine, GQ, The New York Times, The UK’s Mirror, The Independent and The Telegraph (although the latter is not leftist) as truth – not even with the world allegedly, before the full facts were in.
Here in Britain, Piers Morgan, the staunch Leftie masquerading as a “right-wing provocateur” was quick to virtue signal about gun control and spread the false narrative.
Morgan tweeted: “BREAKING: Florida shooter/terrorist Nikolas Cruz was a white supremacist. Can you even imagine how fast laws would be changed if he’d been a MUSLIM shooter/terrorist?”
Piers should look back to the Orlando massacre at a gay nightclub after Omar Mateen murdered 49 people, U.S. Gun Laws did not change.
It’s no surprise Morgan has an axe to grind, after all, his U.S. Talk Show on CNN was cancelled after a ratings dive partly in relation to his pro-gun Control agenda.
The Florida gunman was named ‘Nikolas de Jesus Cruz’ (that’s very White-American isn’t it?) and his victims were mostly white, clearly the worst white supremacist in American history.
Leon County law enforcement sources told the Tallahassee Democrat that they could not find information linking Cruz, 19, to the Republic of Florida Militia, as claimed by the group’s self-proclaimed leader Jordan Jereb, who the Associated Press originally got the story from.
The mainstream media needs to stop pushing fake news and let the Florida families grieve, instead of using a tragedy to push for gun control.
