Media finally covers black church shooter, but first they crafted a twisted narrative

When you have no anti-conservative agenda, you create one.

That appears to be the motto of left-leaning news agencies in the aftermath of the terrifying church shooting, carried out last week by black, Sudanese immigrant Emanuel Kidega Samson, in Antioch, Tennessee.

Devoid of a nice, tidy narrative like they had when white supremacist terrorist Dylann Roof murdered churchgoers in a historic black church in South Carolina in 2015, the media is attempting to craft one.

Even as evidence is mounting that the shooting was revenge for the Roof shooting, ABC News reported.

As the Roof shooting was racially motivated, if this was revenge it stands to reason that the 25-year-old shooter was also motivated by race. But facts be damned, there is a narrative to push.

On Wednesday, the far left ThinkProgress website took the lazy path and wondered if Samson’s Christian faith was part of the reason he targeted a majority white Christian church, because you cannot suggest a black killer might be racist.

But the most outrageous angle on the story came from Newsweek, which, unlike ThinkProgress, purports to be an unbiased news source.

Rather than focus on the horrific crime and the possible motivation for the attack that killed one and injured six, all white victims, it called out the “alt-right” for wondering why the media is ignoring the attack.

The magazine argued that the alt-right is “exploiting the tragedy to ignite political outrage.”

It attacked conservative YouTuber, Stefan Molyneux, for stoking racial tensions by showing screenshots of Samson’s social media that highlighted his contempt for white people.

Have they forgotten how the mainstream media covered Roof and analyzed every photo of him for weeks. Particularly the ones in which e posed with a Confederate battle flag.

The aftermath of their obsession caused a police officer to be fired for wearing Confederate battle flag boxers and had the flag ripped off of “Dukes of Hazzard” memorabilia.

And speaking of the “Dukes of Hazzard,” it went so far that another officer was banned from driving his General Lee replica car to work. While the owner of the original set car painted over the iconic flag on the roof,  TV Land even removed the show from its schedule.

To this day Roof is being used as a reason to remove any signs of Confederate history.

But it is the right that is exploiting a tragedy to “ignite political outrage,” says Newsweek.

Your time would be better served at examining the racist motivations the man apparently had. He left clues.

If you cannot find them, social media is happy to help.

Yeah but shhhhhhh. Christians and guns and alt-right.
