Here’s Why the Mainstream Media Has All But Abandoned the STEM School Shooting

If anybody still believes CNN, MSNBC, and other progressive media outlets are unbiased arbiters of truth and facts, they might want to take a look at the most recent school shooting.

On May 7th, two shooters opened fire on STEM School Highlands Ranch in suburban Denver, killing one student and injuring eight others.

Have you wondered why this story disappeared from the headlines so quickly?  To answer that, let’s take a look at the suspects. You see, these young, mentally disturbed criminals just do not fit the narrative the mainstream media prefers for school shooters.  

The first shooter, 18-year-old Devon Erickson, is a registered Democrat, open Trump-hater, Obama supporter, and anti-Christian.  Not a very convenient shooter for the liberal media’s narrative, is he? No, they prefer anyone they can paint as a “far-right” radical or white supremacist or in any other way link to the NRA and millions of law-abiding gun owners.

16-year-old Maya McKinney, who is being charged as a co-conspirator, just so happens to be a biological girl who claims to be “transitioning” to a boy.

This is certainly the most convenient aspect of this sad story for the biased mainstream media.

This just doesn’t work for the mainstream media who have all but taken a solemn vow to always protect the interests of the LGBTQ+ agenda, no matter the cost.  

So, the question remains, how do they spin this?  Easy. They don’t. They just move on with the news cycle. 

John Nolte of Breitbart explains,

I mean, this is only a school shooting; it’s not like a kid in a Make America Great Again hat smirked at a member of the protected class.

You see, what we have here is a school shooting that is politically inconvenient to our unbiased, objective, not-at-all left-wing media.”

The shooters survived this incident, a rare occurrence among school shootings, yet there seems to be no interest coming from the left-wing media outlets to seek out answers.

“This is what our media would normally call a Narrative Bonanza, the kind of story that hooks viewers and keeps them tuning in to see how it all ends.” Nolte points out.  Yet, this story has seemed to all but vanish from the 24/7 news cycle.

By this time we should be on day 6 of the media’s anti-gun crusade and no doubt many pundits would be finding a way to blame Trump.  

But covering this story honestly, or at all, would inevitably have to include discussing the radical left-wing views and gender confusion of the two perpetrators.

McKinney’s gender confusion is a disaster for the media.  Members of such protected classes are always the victim and must always be touted as heroes.  Those are the rules.

In addition to the transgender issue, Nolte explains:

To begin with, according to early media reports, both suspects have mental health issues, and the media do not like to talk about mental health because it gets in the way of their fantasy where the federal government kicks in the doors of law-abiding citizens to ‘buy back’ our firearms — you know, for our own good.

It is also relevant to point out that the guns were stolen from a locked gun cabinet, Further illustrating how criminals will be criminals no matter the laws or hurdles.

Imagine for a minute the media meltdown that would have ensued had the shooters been straight, “cisgender” Trump supporters.   The lengths to which the mainstream media will go just to protect a fellow leftist—even one accused of a heinous crime—have no limits.

Let this be your sign.
