Let’s just pull up some quotations from mainstream news sources and learn about what the Virginia reporter shooter believed.
First, the UK Telegraph on the shooter’s home.
Gay pride flag and sex toys:
[…]In a raid on the apartment on Wednesday, police reportedly confiscated a gay pride flag. They also found “many” sex toys, which may have “human material” on them, the source told this newspaper.
Victim mindset and gay prostitution:
In a “suicide note” sent to ABC news, Flanagan said he was discriminated against in life for being gay and said he had sometimes worked as an escort for money.
Here’s another UK Telegraph article.
His motive was revenge against whites:
In a 23-page document faxed to ABC News two hours after the shooting,Flanagan apparently said that the Charleston shooting in June of nine black people was his “tipping point”.
He said the church shooting by racist Dylann Roof in South Carolina “sent me over the top”, after which he immediately bought a gun.
“Why did I do it? I put down a deposit for a gun on 6/19/15. The Church shooting in Charleston happened on 6/17/15,” he wrote.
“What sent me over the top was the church shooting,” he wrote. “And my hollow point bullets have the victims’ initials on them.”
“As for Dylann Roof? You —-! You want a race war —-? BRING IT THEN YOU WHITE —-!!!”
Why was Alison his target?
On his Twitter account, which has since been suspended, he wrote after the shooting that “Alison made racist comments” and “Adam went to (human resources) on me after working with me one time!!!”
And, of course, he is a Democrat:
He was also apparently reprimanded for wearing a sticker supporting President Barack Obama while reporting on the 2012 US presidential election.
And his Twitter feed confirms his frustration with the lack of punishment for Alison’s “racism”:
I had to go to the UK mainstream media to get the full story – the US mainstream media isn’t reporting a thing. Why?
PJ Media reports that ABC News still has not released the full text of his 23-page manifesto.
The same article mentions that CBS News is covering up his anti-white racist motives:
A CBS report never mentioned the shooter’s racial comments at all. The piece did tiptoe around the shooter’s problems with race in two paragraphs, but never actually stated his race rhetoric seen in the explicit terms revealed in his manifesto.
Then, a piece in the Chicago Tribune called the killer “off kilter” and “bizarre” but steered clear of fully reporting on his racist ideas.
One reporter, The Washington Post’s Dave Weigel, even took to Twitter to wring his hands over the reporting of Flanagan’s racist manifesto, saying to Breitbart’s John Nolte, “Do you worry at all that the ‘race war’ story does what the killer wanted?”
To be sure, Weigel was far less worried about stirring racial strife when he wrote a Bloomberg piece dissecting the racial motives of Charleston killer Dylann Roof.
I wonder why the media is covering up for him? Could it be that they basically agree with his values and motives straight down the line?
By the way, you probably hadn’t heard about this, but the driver of the Amtrak train was a gay rights activist, and he also felt that he was a victim of discrimination.
[Brandon] Bostian is a gay-rights activist who previously lived in San Francisco before moving to New York. In 2012, he was interviewed by the Midtown Gazette, which covers parts of Manhattan, during the campaign for marriage equality.
He said: ‘It’s kind of insulting to have to beg people for my right to marry. I feel like we shouldn’t even have to have this fight.’
You probably had no idea. That’s how the mainstream media works.
