What motivated the Annapolis killer to shoot up a newspaper?

4 comments

 

If it turns out the white male who shot up that newspaper office in Annapolis and killed all those people thought it’s okay these days to kill reporters, then all hell will—and should—break loose against those who inspired him.

Who is provoking such a mad frenzy of hatred of journalists? Here are just a few of those in the regime, or friendly to it, who are inciting unstable people to violence.

DONALD J. TRUMP, who tweeted: “The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!”

HIS SON, ERIC TRUMP, who said: “It’s the media, the mainstream media, who does not want [President Trump] to succeed.”

MILO YIANNOPOULOS, who said: “I can’t wait for the vigilante squads to start gunning journalists down on sight.”

SEAN HANNITY, who said: “If you bothered watching the fake news media in the past 24 hours, which I do not recommend, you may have noticed they have a new obsession, and a new target to feign their moral outrage at, and they have decided to hyperventilate and go wall-to-wall with hysterical coverage about me. The media in this country has zero credibility.”

JEFF SESSIONS, who, in reply to a question, threatened to jail reporters: “Can you commit to not jailing reporters for doing their jobs?” Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., asked Sessions. “I don’t know if I can make a blanket commitment to that effect.”

STEVEN BANNON, who said: “The media bubble is the ultimate symbol of what’s wrong with this country. It’s just a circle of people talking to themselves who have no fucking idea what’s going on.”

ALEX JONES, of InfoWars, who compared the American media to “Sodom and Gomorrah” and said they “lie to the public and scam the public.”

Jones’ statement resulted in hundreds of threatening comments against the media. Here are a few:

WestRyder  It’s only going to get worse for CNN. They won’t be around in 2018.

Kate Catinella Take MSNBC with CNN and get rid of them completely

Gary Coolboobs  You have no idea how long I’ve been waiting for the mainstream media to die. Ever since high school. This is the best time to be alive.

Mrs. Davis The Liberal MSM has reaped what they’re sewn [sic]

Here’s another example of an extreme rightwinger, on YouTube, SONNY PUZIKAS: “Circle fucking MSM. This fucking media is a big fucking lie machine. It’s nothing more than that. Time to kill the great lie machine known as mainstream media.”

And this, posted by a Trump supporter shortly after the Annapolis shooting became known:

#shooting in #Annapolis as Rosenstein is being grilled by Congress. Why does a shooting or something bad always seems to happen when the #Democrats are in trouble? Too many instances to be a coincidence #q #qanon #TheGreatAwakening #TheStormIsHere #trump #maga #AnnapolisShooting

Enemy! Get Rid Of! Gun Down! Kill! Die! These paranoid lunatics hatch insane conspiracy theories because their leader, Donald J. Trump, is the Conspiracy-Theorist-in-Chief.

We don’t yet know why the Annapolis killer did what he did. But even if it turns out that he was motivated by something else, the fact remains that Trump & Co. have deliberately stirred up a huge number of psychologically sick Americans. Trump’s own motive is clear: He did some awful things (collusion, obstruction, violating the emoluments clause of the Constitution) and the only way he’s going to get out of this is by polluting the jury (the American people) into believing he’s innocent and all the charges are a grand conspiracy, all the evidence falsified by the FBI, all the reporting that goes against him phony.

So, like I said, if the Annapolis killer was in any way influenced by Trump or his enablers, it’s time to begin Impeachment proceedings NOW. We have in the White House a sociopathic, pathological liar, trying to turn the U.S.A. into a family-run kleptocracy, and succeeding insofar as he’s been able to rally mentally ill white people to his cause. Rise up! Resist! Call your Senators and instruct them NO VOTE ON ANY TRUMP NOMINEE FOR SUPREME COURT! This is your moment to stand up for your values, for America, for your family. Someday, children will ask you what you did to stop Trump. I hope you have an answer!

Have a wonderful weekend. Be angry.

    “MILO YIANNOPOULOS, who said: “I can’t wait for the vigilante squads to start gunning journalists down on sight.””
    Did that lunatic really say that? That’s beyond the pale.
    And I wonder if the Tweeting Trump supporter realizes that Rosenstein is a Republican.

  2. Yes, he really said that, although a little later, he tried to walk it back. But you can’t un-say what you have already said, and the remark provides a glimpse into his mind–and the minds of all those Breitbart types for whom he speaks.

  3. Erik Roberts says:

    Bingo!
    All I wanted to find out was the answer to what motivated the lunatic to kill and your story here ends with the ongoing left news that our president must be the root cause of this!
    Very sad and arrogant that journalism has chosen this obvious bias!

  4. Mr. Roberts, your president–not mine–will be recorded by History as having deliberately unleashed the darkest, sickest instincts that lay buried in the American psyche. He will be repudiated by future generations, as many of us repudiate him now. Your children and grandchildren–if you have any–will speak your name in shame, for having supported him.
