Outrage is in full effect over the identity of the murderous murderer who killed two men in Portland. Apparently he made some rather anti-Islamic comments, which spurred mainstream media to waste no time before painting him as a right wing extremist. The only problem? Turns out he’s less Make America Great Again, more Feeling the Bern…
Jeremy Joseph Christian, the 35-year-old Portland man who allegedly murdered two men and left another critically wounded while yelling anti-Muslim slurs in a knife attack on Friday, has been painted by the mainstream media as a “right-wing extremist,” but posts on his Facebook page indicate he was a supporter of socialist Senator Bernie Sanders and Green Party candidate Jill Stein.
According to screen captures of his Facebook page obtained by Buzzfeed, Christian was not a Trump supporter, as many media outlets claimed, but was a supporter of the idea of a Sanders/Stein ticket.
Aaaand he was a Bernie Bro. Color me unsurprised. This is Portland we’re talking about after all, where the hipsters frolick and the coffee runs freely down unkempt beards. Pretty sure you have to own a Prius in order to get a drivers’ license there. Suffice it to say, Christian is not exactly what I’d call a right wing extremist (read Dear ‘Men’ Who Vote Bernie Sanders: You’re Not Men At All.). “Spineless wimpling” is more fitting…
After the election, Christian made a point of posting to Facebook that he did not vote for Trump…
Stein, the Green Party candidate, tweeted about the attack, apparently unaware of the post Christian made that was favorable to her.
This slimebucket is worthy of all the angry tweets Twitter has to offer, but Jill Stein might want to sit this one out. Tweeting, among many other things, isn’t exactly her forte (see Green Party Twitter Blames Delayed Chicago Cubs Game on… Global Warming?!). Like running for President.
In Stein’s rush to point fingers and name names, she forgot to check out this guy’s background — which seems to be heavily inspired by Bernie as much as herself. Alas, none of those details were included in her statement. Such was the case with the media’s narrative. Talking gasbags were quick to toss around phrases like “white nationalist” and “right wing extremist,” yet we never heard them make any mention of his obsession with the Bernster. I’m sure you can guess why.
The media has its own priorities. Using every opportunity to slam Trump is numero uno. Facts? Stop it.
