Media spots ‘white supremacy’ in Hispanic shooter, but not anti-Christian hate in trans murderer.

The Left’s Narrative Manipulation: From Nashville to Texas Shootings


The Democrats and their corporate media partners have a habit of manipulating narratives to suit their political goals. The recent shootings in Nashville and Texas are perfect examples of this.

The Disparate Reactions

When Mauricio Garcia, a Hispanic man, gunned down civilians in Texas, the media used anonymous sources to blame the shooting on “white supremacy.” In contrast, the FBI refused to investigate the Nashville shooting, carried out by a transgender shooter, as a hate crime, despite local law enforcement suggesting the killer’s victims were targeted because of their Christian faith.

The Media’s Defense of the Transgender Shooter

The media shifted into damage-control mode to defend the Nashville shooter and transgender ideology more broadly. They sowed confusion and disinformation about the shooter’s gender identity and blamed anti-transgender sentiment for the shooting. Democrats placed all their sympathies with transgender people and either snubbed or blamed the six slain Christians.

The Censorship of Free Speech

Twitter began mass censoring reputable journalists, a sitting member of Congress, and Federalist CEO Sean Davis for covering the “Trans Day of Vengeance” protest. The platform also locked the New York Post out of its account for reporting on the company’s censorship of the event.

The Left’s Astroturfed Gun Control and Civil Rights Debate

The left turned the whole incident into an astroturfed gun control and civil rights debate. Anti-Second Amendment activists stormed the Tennessee Capitol, aided by three Democrat lawmakers. The media, former President Barack Obama, President Joe Biden, and celebrities like Oprah rushed to the defense of the expelled assemblymen. Biden invited the three lawmakers to the White House but not the families of the murdered Christians.

The Left’s Narrative Manipulation

The left never lets a tragedy go to waste. Every news story, like the shootings in Texas and Nashville, can and will be twisted to fit within the confines of their worldview and political goals at the expense of the truth, common sense, and basic human decency.
