Unreliable news coverage fosters false narrative of killer
The headlines tell a sly story, leaving out pertinent information. Following the murder of Capitol Police Officer William Evans, an 18-year-veteran of the force, who died Friday after a motorist rammed a barricade and lunged at him with a knife, and was finally killed, there was a unified pall over the coverage. Another officer was injured in the attack.
Once again, the facts didn’t fit the narrative the leftist media has nimbly honed into an art-form. White guys are gun crazed maniacs and “people of color” are victims of “systemic racism,” the latest in trendy marginalizing terms. Typical of the headlines broadcast by major news outlets was the bland, “Capitol threat suspect identified as 25-year-old Indiana man.” A former neighbor in an apartment complex where he previously lived described the killer as, “a nice, young, friendly guy.”
In fact the “nice Indiana man” was Noah Green, a member of the Nation of Islam and devotee of notorious hatemonger Louis Farrakhan and its anti-white theology. He posted on his website as Noah X (replicating Malcolm X, another Nation of Islam zealot who advocated separatism rather than integration in the 1960s). In January, Green applied to legally change his name to Noah Zaeem Muhammad. Such significant information took second stage to informing us that Green graduated from Christopher Newport University with a degree in finance and was a defensive back from Covington, Virginia, where he attended Alleghany High School.
In March, ten people were killed, including a police officer, when a gunman opened fire at a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado. Though the mass murderer was Syrian born Muslim Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, VP Kamala Harris’ niece tweeted: “The Atlanta shooting was not even a week ago. Violent white men are the greatest terrorist threat to our country,” which she was forced to delete.
Just days ago, four people were killed, including a 9-year-old boy who died in his mother‘s arms as she tried to save him, when Aminadab Gaxiola Gonzalez opened fire in an office building courtyard in Los Angeles. Law enforcement officials said Gonzalez used a bike lock to hold the gates closed, requiring officers to bring bolt cutters to the scene to gain entry.
Until we respond to this intentionally skewed reporting by speaking up and not supporting it, it will continue and proliferate. Call the editors and station managers and let them know that you will watch, read or listen to other news sources and why. Silence is acquiescence.
