As the media continues to spin the El Paso Walmart shooting as an act of radical white supremacy, new questions have arisen in regard to a supposed manifesto uploaded to the internet by the shooter.
With Texas, (and Ohio), both in mourning this week, the American people are looking for answers. Again, we have witnessed two very troubled young men resort to barbaric and extraordinary violence, in public, and against the innocent of our nation. The President himself has expressed his support for so-called “Red Flag” laws, particularly in regard to assessing the mental state of someone who could be interested in purchasing a firearm.
On the left, however, a more vitriolic conversation is taking place, with democrats now explicitly blaming the President for the El Paso shooting, based on a “manifest” allegedly created and uploaded by the shooter that intimated his hateful, white nationalist views. Given that the mainstream media has been working to equate Trump with white nationalism for years, the democrats are simply going to parrot their pals on television.
But there’s just one issue: The shooter could not have uploaded the manifesto at all.
The owner of the anonymous message board 8Chan, Jim Watkins, has unequivocally stated that the manifesto which was said to have been posted by the El Paso Walmart shooter on his website was not actually posted by the killer.
Just moments before the deadly shooting in El Paso on Saturday, a sinister four page long manifesto was posted to 8Chan by someone who claimed to be the shooter.
However, Watkins, an Army veteran, asserted that the shooter actually posted on Instagram prior to the attack — and whoever uploaded the manifesto to 8Chan was not the person who committed the heinous act.
“First of all, the El Paso shooter posted on Instagram, not 8Chan. Later, someone uploaded a manifesto. However, that manifesto was not uploaded by the Walmart shooter,” Watkins asserted in his video statement. “I don’t know if he wrote it or not, but it was not uploaded by the murderer. That is clear, and law enforcement was made aware of this before most people had even heard the horrific news.”
As the left continues to reach for loose connections in the case of El Paso’s latest tragedy, this distinction could prove electrifying.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
