D.C. Massacre, Media Scrambles To Determine Story’s “Usefulness”

D.C. shooter, Aaron Alexis, wisely chose a "gun-free zone" to conduct his rampage in.

Like me, you watch with fascination and horror every day, as the dominant media, including almost every single televison network, radio station, news bureau, print magazine, and Internet news site, searches endlessly for stories that will reinforce their message of government as the source of all that is good. And because they are obsessed with race, they also look for stories that promote the idea of rampant racism among whites, sometimes to the point of comical absurdity, as in the case of Sanford, Florida shooter, George Zimmerman, being described as a “white Hispanic”.

So today’s story of the murders at a Navy facilty in Washington, D.C. must surely have represented a huge dissappointment to most of the media. Desperately hoping for a white, right-wing “tea-party type”, they instead get a black man from Texas, likely a disgruntled employee, who went insane.

That leaves only one angle for MSNBC and the rest to fall back on, the old reliable “We must disarm all Americans now” theme. As it happens, everyone in that facility was disarmed, with no possibilty of defending themselves from a madman. That’s what they want for the rest of us.

  1. Who the hell granted this madman security clearance to enter the base? Edward Snowden? The guy was a documented nut case, with an arrest record involving discharge of firearms, diagnosed as paranoid and hearing voices according to the VA hospital where he was being treated for mental illness. And, as for this incident justifying the banning assault weapons, authorities now indicate that while he entered the base with only a shotgun (remember Joe Bite Me’s recent advice to “buy a shotgun…buy a shotgun”), “surveillance footage showed that he began his attack with a shotgun, but was found with a 9mm pistol and an AR-15 assault rifle. The suspected gunman appeared to have seized firearms from two of his victims as he moved through the building…”

  2. Update: “FBI Washington field office just confirmed gunman was NOT armed with AR15. Spokesperson says 1 shotgun and 2 pistols recovered.”
