MSM, Social Media already blaming Trump for Annapolis targeted killings
Daily Mail story gone but twitter lives forever…

The killer at Maryland’s Capital Gazette newsroom was not a “white male” with a “ponytail” as was initially reported yesterday by the mainstream media.

Even after Jarrod W. Ramos, 38, was charged by police as the alleged killer of five, leaving three “gravely injured” at Maryland’s community newspaper, we’re still reading headlines like this one this morning:


‘Ponytailed’ white male carrying a ‘long gun’ and explosive device shoots at least five dead and leaves three ‘gravely injured’ at Maryland’s Capital Gazette newsroom, as cops reveal he purposely damaged his fingertips so he couldn’t be identified.” (RevolutionRadio, June 28, 2018)

Don’t blame Revolution for the “white male” “ponytailed” story because it appears that they only picked it up from the overseas Daily Mail.

DO blame the MSM who have yet to come forward to tell the masses that, as far as is known, the white male with a ponytail didn’t exist.

Perhaps he was a case of mistaken identity, or, understandably, a mistake that came during the first moments of confusion in yesterday’s terrible tragedy.

Do be grateful that the Maryland police, who like most other police forces are politically harassed and losing their lives, responded within 60 seconds to reports of an active shooter at the newsroom, at about 2:40 yesterday afternoon. 

Most police CAN be counted upon to give the public the facts as soon as they are known:

“This was a targeted attack on the Capital Gazette,” said Anne Arundel County Acting Police Chief William Krampf.

“The victims were identified as Rob Hiaasen, 59, a former feature writer for The Baltimore Sun who joined the Capital Gazette in 2010 as an assistant editor and columnist; Wendi Winters, 65, a community correspondent who headed special publications; Gerald Fischman, 61, the editorial page editor; John McNamara, 56, a staff writer who had covered high school, college and professional sports for decades; and Rebecca Smith, 34, a sales assistant hired in November.” (Baltimore Sun, June 29, 2018)

Trump critics blame president’s anti-press rhetoric for Capital Gazette shooting

Struck down in their prime and most heartbreakingly and tragically not able to return home yesterday to their loved ones from their workplace.

The Capital Gazette, owned by the Baltimore Sun, is a community newspaper.  Community newspapers are not the MSM, but the backbone of the communities which they serve.

Before all Capital Gazette victims could even be given decent burial, mainstream and social media were already blaming Conservative figures like Sean Hannity for Thursday’s horrific events.

Already working on their next talking point for Midterm elections, count on them laying the blame on the doorstep of President Donald Trump.

Critics of President Trump said Thursday he bore blame for the shooting deaths of five people at a community newspaper in Maryland, saying his tough talk toward the press created the environment for the gunman to launch his attack.

Capital Gazette reporters appeared to poke a hole in those accusations, saying the gunman specifically targeted their newspaper for a feud dating back at least to 2012, when he filed a defamation lawsuit against the paper for its coverage of a court case against him.

The rage of Jerrod W. Ramos predates the pain of today’s Fake News. Ramos, sued the paper and harassed staff over a 2011 article that exposed him for Facebook stalking a woman.

Pray to the Lord above for the souls lost in the Capital Gazette and their heartbroken, grief-stricken loved ones.  Pray that in coming days cooler heads prevail before anyone else gets hurt.
