…the alleged “manifesto” of the El Paso shooter, by which the entire atrocity is being blamed on Trump, Republicans, conservative, border hard-liners and gun owners, was kinda fraud-y?
It’s a stretch.
[“8Chan” owner Jim] Watkins posted a video on his YouTube channel on Tuesday, saying the manifesto was first published on Instagram and not on his site. He said the document was then uploaded to his site by another user and that law enforcement had been “made aware” of it.
“First of all, the El Paso shooter posted on Instagram, not 8chan,” Watkins said. “Later, someone uploaded the manifesto. However, that manifesto was not uploaded by the Walmart shooter. I don’t know if he wrote it or not, but it was not uploaded by the murderer that is clear.”
Is it true?
The only way to find out from the mainstream media will be if the El Paso shooting disappears down the memory hole just as fast as the Dayton shooting (by a very strident leftist) seems to have, or the Colorado School shooting, by a trans…person did.
Because as Jim Treacher points out, the media’s job is to cover stories that discomfort Big Left. With a pillow. Til the convulsions stop.
