Tennessee on Sunday in which a Sudanese immigrant, who is black, murdered a
white mother of two and wounded six other people, including the pastor, has
totally ignored the incident, conveniently using the NFL/ Trump controversy
as grist for its mill.
Emanuel Kidega Samson, from Sudan, first murdered Melanie Smith, 39, in the
parking lot, then entered Burnette Chapel Church of Christ and started
shooting. He was only stopped by the heroism of an usher, Caleb Engle, 22,
who was pistol-whipped in the face, but held tight until Samson accidentally
shot himself. Engle then retrieved his firearm from his car and stood guard
over Samson until police arrived.
Matt Walsh, in a powerful column at The Blaze, pointed out:
"Maybe you read about this story on page 14 of the newspaper. I’m not
exaggerating, either. The New York Times put this mass shooting on page 14.
The front page was dominated by athletes kneeling. Or perhaps you heard it
mentioned in a 12-second blurb at the end of a cable newscast last night. I
flipped through a few different channels and didn’t hear it even mentioned
one time, but maybe they got around to it. Of course, in a 60-minute
broadcast they had to allot at least 59 minutes to cataloging the posture of
NFL players. If you managed to sit through all of that, you may have heard
the “P.S. There was a mass shooting at a church today okay that’s all
goodnight” at the end."
"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."
Engle has tried to downplay his incredibly heroic act, issuing a statement
lauding the police and first responders. That, of course, garnered him no
Walsh concluded with a brutal takedown of the media’s moral lassitude: “In
case you’re wondering, media: This why people despise you.”
This hominid was an Islamist from Sudan, specifically shooting White people
in a multiethnic church. He’s been charged with a hate crime as well as the
murder and attempted murders, I think he may be only the third or fourth
black person ever charged under federal hate crime statutes. It proves Trump
was right though, so it cannot be talked about in polite society...
