What if There Was a Coordinated Group Terror and Murder Campaign Against Gays Living In America, and The Media Didn't Report It?

It's not a hypothetical.

Noah C. Rothman provides the facts of the case, in which a group of men, led by a Ali Mohammad Brown, used the hook-up phone app "Grindr" to arrange liaisons with gay men, before Brown murdered them. (I do not know the extent of the accomplices' involvement.)

Ali Mohammad Brown is a "strict Muslim," according to one press account, and according to prosecutors, was murdering people for terroristic motives, as part of a "bloody crusade" against the US government as vengeance against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Apparently he chose gay men as among the most unrighteous of all possible terror-murder victims.

Did you know any of this?

I didn't.

This is a story tailor-made for the national press but, rather than highlighting it, the opposite has occurred. It seems that the press has sanitized the actions and motives of Brown and his two accomplices. He was not simply a murderer and a criminal, though he was most certainly both of those things. Brown was also a terrorist who targeted a specific group of victims based on their sexual identity. It is quite uncharacteristic of the press to understate those two facts.

Brown's killing spree seems like it should be considered hate crimes at the very least, if not overt acts of terrorism. Why, then, has it not been presented in that fashion in the press?

Some press accounts do paint a full picture of these crimes, but others, Rothman says, sanitize the story for reasons which I assume are all too obvious.

But this is not a national story, definitely! Certainly there is no great chatter about it, no ancillary reportage (as when the press spins off coverage to discuss related issues; witness them just reporting on how journalists do their jobs of journalism in relation to Ferguson), no blistering editorials, no Town Halls hosted by Anderson Cooper about bullying, no Concern from MSNBC.

Today the Washington Post Editorial Board announces it will no longer use the term "Redskins" in any of the zero times it has cause to editorialize about a football team.

Apparently that is a more important story than this one, with more Lessons to Teach Us.

The Matthew Sheppard killing had something to teach us. There were many, many reports about that. It was the most infamous single American murder of that decade.

In this case, three gay men were murdered. Three.

Not even a blip on the national news radar screens.

But they'll tell you, with a straight face, they just report the news as they see it.

Progressive Multiculturalism has Balkanized the US.

We no longer have a dominant culture, as 'all cultures are equal'....

There is no assimilation, because of the HUGE amount of People who were not born here...

Add up legal, and illegal immigration over the past 30 years... 1 Million per year Legal... and REAL estimates of Illegals as high as 30 Million...

And you have about 20% of the US population who was not born here....

So of course, Washington wants to INCREASE immigration! /facepalm...

109 Someone close to me works at Seattle FOX station and he was the one who first told me the details of this crime. One of the murder victims was a Somali and the other was black - so both were "men of color". Here's more from the station on this case:

The other case that has been COMPLETELY ignored by the MSM - because it is muslim on gay crime - is the attempted arson of a Seattle gay nightclub on New Year's Eve. Musab Mohamed Masmari is a Libyan who was allowed into the US by the State Department as a "refugee" from the Qaddafi regime. Not one single news station here, or anywhere, has mentioned that the guy is a muslim who wanted to "exterminate" gays.

114 Sorry, Ace, but I don't agree with the new legal concept of "Hate Crime." A crime is a crime, and by making a crime worse by designating it a Hate Crime, you dimish the severity of a the same crime committed to others that do not meet the standards of a Hate Crime.

Besides, most people in this country have never really experienced hatred (to or by themselves) and don't really know what it means. Therefore, the term is essentially meaningless.

116 It's long been clear to me that there's an inversion going on.

The press says what's important to them is the identity of the victims, that they pay special attention when the victims are gay, black, Palestinian... because they are underdogs and need help. That this is why they don't cover crimes against straights or white people or Israelis with the same enthusiasm.

But if you look at their actual behavior, it's not the identity of the victims that determines coverage - it's the identity of the attackers. If the attackers are, variously, white, American, or Israeli, there's coverage. If the same victims are killed or harmed by other groups, not so much.

This is an example: the victims are gay but the attacker's identity does not contribute to the narrative.

Another example: when a white person (or someone they initially think is white and then have to frantically retcon into "white Hispanic") shoots a black person, it's news. If that same person is shot by someone who isn't white, crickets. (See the murder rate by black people in Chicago, most of whose victims are black. See also the ethnic cleansing going on in the LA area - the victims are black, but the perpetrators are Hispanic, not white, so it's not news.)

Another one: when Israelis kill a Gazan, it's news. When Hamas murders Gazans wholesale - not excluding public lynchings and the most hideous torture - it's not news.

Americans play stupid games with Iraqis in jail? Top headlines for months at a time. ISIS uses two cars to pull a woman into two pieces? Yawn. (The ISIS story is news because of its geopolitical significance, but there's little to no Outrageous Outrage over what they do to their victims.)

It's hard to avoid drawing the conclusion that the purpose of victim/victimizer narratives and stories is to weaken, variously, white people, Americans, or Israelis. If the purpose were to support the victims, the stories would still be pushed even if the victimizers weren't in the disfavored groups. But they never are.

Somewhere i've got a link to the actual facts of that case, and it appears that Mathew Sheppard wasn't killed for being gay, it appears that he was killed for pulling some shit with his drug dealer. You know, like not paying him for drugs.

119 The director and writer of "The Laramie Project" )Moises Kaufmann, is a gay man who says he cannot be involved in any project that don't take that into account, so his piece on Matthew Shepherd was either based on faulty information or it was a hagiographic piece. I'm guessing th latter. That Shepherd was supposedly murdered because he was a gay man by Laramie rednecks has much more theatrical humph than the truth.

120 Contrary to overheated rhetoric emanating from the Tea Party wing of the racist Republican party, Al M. Brown is merely a confused and angry young man who is a tragic bit player in a local crime story. He has been accused of killing four people, but under the Monroe Doctrine he is presumed innocent until he is proven guilty by a grand jury.

The refusal of Congress to do its job and pass legislation that is needed by the people no doubt contributed to the justified rage Mr. Brown felt. His search for a peaceful resolution to his love for his country was made impossible by the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in the Lilly Ledbetter case requiring differently abled people to carry concealed weapons. Although Congress responded by attempting to make the Civil Rights Act of 1964 legal again, these efforts quickly bogged down in partisan delaying tactics by the Republicans. Emboldened by such brazen disregard for children's nutrition issues, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie closed the Edgar Washington Bridge to keep people from leaving the Gaza Strip.

153 "Another example: when a white person (or someone they initially think is

a black person, it's news."

The extremely rapid and widespread introduction of the previously obscure "white Hispanic" concept by the media was because the media assumed Zimmerman's last name meant he was Jewish.

The media, as auxiliaries of the Democratic Party, do not like it one bit when two key ethnic constituencies of the Democratic Party, blacks and Jews, get crossways with each other.

That's how normally extremely liberal New York City ended up with a Republican mayor a few years ago.

So within the media, if there is even a possibility of such friction resulting from their coverage, steps must be taken at once to minimize it. Ergo, "white Hispanic".

Guess which President tossed off a 2-minute halfassed statement enroute to the tee, and which President would have given his full attention and gone personally to meet his parents, whether he'd voted for him or not. And the Pope who was surely a behind-the-times womyn-hater called his parents for 20 minutes.

181 #145 - Awfully funny (me sides, they hurt) that the "stretch-skinned viperess" only became so adamant regarding her role as "beard" rather than "gold-digger" when Sterling's wife went after the "gifts" (house, car, jewelry, etc., etc., etc.) said viperess received. Happy to be on the old fellow's arm as long as the goodies were coming in, but once busted, better for her career going forward to have been a beard rather than a gold-digger, I s'pose.

If anyone believes it, that is.

It's hard to avoid the impression that the reason Foley had gone to Syria in the first place was to help drum up support for Obama's policy stance regarding Syria.

Sadly, Foley didn't realize that a guy who will casually lose an ambassador for cold political purposes is not going to lose a wink of sleep over losing a mere freelance journalist for the same purposes.

The Shreveport Times ran a story about hate crimes against Muslims, despite that not being much of a problem here:

>>Once in a while someone will tie a piece of pork on the door handle of the local mosque -- Muslims are restricted from consuming pork -- or some other act to show "hatred" or "ignorance" of Islam. But it's never been more than that, he said.

This was the big story on their web site on September 11, 2013.

191 FenelonSpoke, I'm late here but you sorta stole my thunder.

Just WTF is a "hate crime" supposed to be? I believe there is something called "aggravating circumstances" in criminal law that can be introduced to increase the severity of punishments.I believe (criminal lawyers jump in to correct me) that this element has long/always been there as a tool for the justice system to lean more heavily on crimes with particularly ugly motivations.

But sorry, the very concept of "hate crime" is indefensible idiocy under our system, and always has been. Thus making a nice proxy for one element of our degradation.

So way back a guy on my recreational sports team (great guy, very smart, but inexplicably soaked in lefty judicial mindset) comes in to the locker room, and I asked him about "hate crime" - I think some debate or something was happening on the Hill about the topic. At the time, this guy was directly involved in legislative matters for a major civil rights outfit. He just looked at me, rolled his eyes, and said "don't ask". In other words, he was signalling that yeah, it's all nonsense, totally alien to our criminal justice system and traditions.

So even someone tragically open to incredibly stupid ideas was flabbergasted by the very concept of "hate crimes".

And just as citing Matthew Shephard's murder without noting that it was mostly distorted to be something it never was, using the very term "hate crime" without major denigration and debunking and abuse seems like a perfect example of defeat before the battle has begun. Stop accepting the indefensible, poisonous, stupid, pernicious nonsense of the statists and racists and fascists, including their language and assumptions. That's where the battle is, if there even is one, any more ....

That shit started with Randy Shilts in his book "And the Band Played On."

*************************
I think the appropriate expression in this case is "fellow traveler." Trotsky used it to refer to people who were not Communists, yet they accepted and supported the revolution. Both the gays and the Muslims are fellow travelers for the "fundamental change" project, yet they have dramatically different ideas as to exactly what that means, and because of Obama's unique nature, he can actually make both groups believe that he is down with the kind of "fundamental change" they seek. Better to have the revolution first, then settle the details.
As for "useful idiots," that was the phrase allegedly used by Lenin to describe ordinary socialists in the West who reflexively supported the Soviet Union's goals without realizing that they were doing so. In modern history, think of the SANE/FREEZE movement. John F. Kerry may be the leading useful idiot these days, although Slow Joe Biden probably comes close, even though said USSR has been gone now for a quarter century.

It taught us that it is pretty easy to get donations and a song written by Elton John. Even though it has been ten years and a full debunking later, the Matthew Sheppard foundation still insists that he was killed as a hate crime because he was gay.

And by the way Ace, have you seen the book out with a gay author that proves that Matthew Shepherd was the gay lover of his killers? They pretended to be against gays, because they thought the jury would acquit them, because they assumed the community was okay with killing gays!

The whole Matthew Shepherd story is a lie. That means all those hate crime laws are based on a big fat lie.
