Why stabbing fatalities fly under the media radar

The recent wave of killings of innocents by knife wielding criminals has garnered scant coverage by the left-wing, agendized news media. In the past couple of days, vicious stabbing fatalities have increased without grabbing national headlines or being exploited by Democrat politicians.

Zachary Castaneda, a 33-year-old convicted felon and known gang member — described by the Garden Grove, California police chief as “full of anger” motivated by “robbery, hate, homicide,” — went on a two-hour, two-handed stabbing and robbery rampage in Southern California. He randomly killed four people and wounded two others using “some sort of machete knives.”  Law enforcement officials say changes in state law led to Castaneda being released from prison earlier than he previously would have been. In 2011 California’s Democrat controlled legislature, passed Assembly Bill 109, approved by Democrat Gov. Jerry Brown. The aim was to reduce prison populations via machinations.

The police chief noted the suspect and all his victims were Hispanic.

This clearly doesn’t play into the “racist” narrative that has irrationally been hung around President Trump’s neck by scheming leftists.

Neither does the stabbing fatality that took place in New York as William Rivas, 39, fatally stabbed his wife, Carmen Santiago multiple times in the back at a nail salon where she worked. Shocked witnesses filmed part of the horrific, bloody attack on their phones.

Hispanic killers don’t fit the left’s hypocritical playbook. Neither are knifes and machetes included in Second Amendment protections that radical leftists want to abolish.  There is no equivalent of the NRA protecting long blades.

    Seeing Red AZ has nailed it again! Another post making excellent points. Truth is overwhelmed by the multitudes of loud voices of those on the political left and their accommodating media cohorts.

    And south of the border, yesterday, this:
    Mexican police on Thursday found nine bodies hanging from a bridge, seven more hacked to bits, and another three dumped nearby in what they said was a gang turf-war massacre that left 19 people dead, including at least one woman.

    Did they not get the message when in Dec 2018 the US Senate under the guidance of Cory Booker and Kamala-la-la passed legislation that would outlaw death by hanging/lyching?

    (Hint: this happened with lightening speed as soon as President Trump began using the word “treason”. Consider the penalty for treason.)


    This happened at DFW airport, also on Thursday.
    A VietNam era military pilot who was listed as M.I.A. has finally returned home.

    His son was the pilot of the commercial Southwest Airlines flight that brought him back to TX for a proper burial.

    Go To this journalist’s twitter site, he documented what happened at DFW. You don’t need to have a twitter account to view this.


    Patriotism is alive and well in America. Don’t ever doubt it.

    And John McTasseledLeatherLoafers, who treated family members of POW/MIAs So Terribly IS STILL DEAD.
    (and it was Not on “his own terms”)

    Election season is fast approaching and the Hillary-supporting Dems are terrified of a repeat of 2016, when Donald Trump brought about a wipe out they were unprepared for.

    Biden is imploding, Pocahontas and old Bernie are stagnating. Kamala Harris is losing steam and self declared “Spartacus” Cory Booker is not connecting with his non-existent base. The rest are high risk unknowns.

    Yes, President Trump has an unconventional style, but he produces results. Our economy has soared, unemployment is at all time lows, with minorities overwhelmingly benefiting from his policies. His judicial appointments are stellar and his polling numbers are consistently mid-range despite the daily brick bats thrown at him. Those I know are looking forward to giving Trump a second term. So are our family members, except for the radical, know nothing but loudly opinionated school teacher our middle son married. Fortunately she doesn’t want kids so her gene pool won’t continue. We have numerous grandchildren, who are being raised right.

    Notice that news accounts no longer reveal whether Hispanics are illegally in the USA. That fact doesn’t play into the open border agenda now being relentlessly promoted.

    The left wants us to stop using pertinent identifiers. The accurate terms “Illegal alien” and “invasion” are blacklisted, as they try to shame us for using legitimate descriptions.

    I’ll stay honest and use correct terminology. No extremist will influence my usage of the English language.

    The Chicago Tribune runs a continually (weekly) updated city homicide tracker.

    The most recent headline? “In Chicago, 306 people have been killed this year. That is 47 fewer than 2018.”

    The numbers are horrifying, but don’t get the coverage they deserve. After all, the city has long been controlled by Democrats and Rahm Emanuel, formerly Barack Obama’s chief of staff, was the longtime mayor of this hell hole. The last Republican Mayor of Chicago was William Hale Thompson who was first elected from 1915-1923. He served another (non-consecutive) term from 1927–1931. Wouldn’t you think Chicago residents would see that doing the same thing and getting the identical terrible results is the textbook definition of insanity?

    Why was the word “racist” never used in the New York case of Z’Inah Brown, a black female high school student who stalked, physically assaulted and ultimately murdered a white classmate? Brown has been sentenced to 17 years in state prison after entering a guilty plea for stabbing Valaree Schwab, a 16-year-old high school classmate to death at a Dunkin’ Donuts last year. Racism comes in all ethnicities. Blacks and Hispanics can be, and often are, racists.
