    Is the Story still being talked about

    A terrorist shot up a church but the media’s too busy talking about NFL players kneeling


    Of course, I realize that the media has additional motivations here. Not only is the NFL story sexier and more watchable, but it’s also vastly more politically convenient. The church shooting does no favors to the liberal narrative, so it must be ignored. The shooter was black. He’s a Sudanese immigrant. He killed a white woman. He was stopped by a good guy with a gun. If the races were switched and you removed the pesky pro-Second Amendment element of the story, perhaps it may have fighting chance to compete with choreographed protests in professional sports for airtime. But the details being what they are, the outcome was predetermined. This was destined to be buried. The NFL distraction just made it that much easier.

    But those of us who do take a second to reflect on Sunday’s truly newsworthy event will come away with, among other things, a riveting picture of what real courage looks like. If you were to compare the minutes the media has spent slobbering over the heroism of kneeling athletes compared to how many minutes they’ve spent even acknowledging the heroism of the guy who tackled and neutralized a crazed gunman in a Tennessee church on Sunday, I’m guessing it would be about 9,000,000 to zero. But I’m of the radical opinion that the ratio should be exactly reversed.

    It is here.

    Maybe it'd be talked about more if more people cared about it.

    by and large the Media Drives The Narrative ...
    few would be talking Trump and the NFL if the lame stream media were not splashing the story across their networks

    No, few would be talking about the NFL if Trump didn't have a Twitter account.

    MEDIA SILENCE: Antioch Church Shooter Had Note That Mentioned 'Revenge' For Dylann Roof


    A note found by investigators in the car belonging to the alleged Antioch church gunman referenced “revenge” for the Charleston church shooting by white supremacist Dylann Roof in 2015.

    The investigative report from the Associated Press could offer insight into a possible motive for the shooting by 25-year-old suspect Emanuel Kidega Samson — a Sudanese migrant:

    The Associated Press has not viewed the note, but it was summarized in an investigative report circulating among law enforcement. Two officials read to AP from the note.

    The report said that “in sum and in no way verbatim,” the note referenced revenge or retaliation for Dylann Roof, the white supremacist who killed nine black worshippers at a South Carolina church in 2015 and has since been sentenced to death. It wasn’t clear what precisely Samson is alleged to have written about the Roof shooting, or whether his note contained other important details that might also speak to a motivation or state of mind.
