Media Rushes to Ignore Maryland Mass Shooting
At first glance, you might think that the Maryland Rite Aid mass shooting was a gift-wrapped present for Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). The Democrats are eager to run on a gun control platform for the 2018 midterm elections, because they have literally nothing else in their policy bag.
The media is all too happy to oblige them in this shared mission. But for some reason, the media dropped the shooting like a hot potato after only a couple of days. The reasons why will come as no surprise to anyone who’s been paying attention.
We know pretty much all of the details of the shooting at this point. A temporary employee at the Rite Aid distribution center in Aberdeen, MD went to work on Thursday. Co-workers say it was clear that she was “looking to pick a fight” when she showed up. Instead, she pulled out a 9mm Glock and started indiscriminately shooting. Three people were killed and three were wounded, both inside and outside the building, before the shooter turned the gun on herself. She died at the hospital and police later identified her as 26-year-old Snochia Moseley.
Remember the good old days when there was a mass shooting, before we all realized that the mainstream media lies about everything? We would all get nervous as we watched the news coverage, because of the way that mass shootings had been so heavily politicized.
The news anchor would then breathlessly report, “We’re being told by sources on the ground that the shooter is a white male. He’s a member of the Tea Party and he possibly has a Facebook page on which he identifies himself as part of the Christian patriarchy movement. Sources also tell us that he has a concealed carry permit. The suspect was using an AL-87 attack bazooka with extended clippers, which I’m told is a type of fully automatic machine gun that he purchased with no background check through a gun show loophole. We’re still waiting for confirmation of the evil white man’s name, but don’t be surprised if it’s something like Chet or Brian. And also… oh, wait, we have a slight correction. Police now say the shooter’s name is Muhammad Jihad bin Laden ali Muhammad Jihad. We’ll probably never be able to determine his motive. Turning now to other news, light rainfall in central Nebraska has soybean farmers worried about this year’s crop prices…”
And then we’d never hear about the shooting again.
When a shooting suspect is a white male, however — or someone who can be granted “honorary white” status like George Zimmerman or Nikolas Cruz — we never hear the end of it. The coverage saturates the airwaves for months — sometimes years.
Which brings us back to the Rite Aid shooting. As soon the shooter’s full identity was released, the media recoiled from the story like Michael Moore from a salad. (Sorry, we couldn’t resist.)
Snochia Moseley was a woman, so that was one strike against extended media coverage of the shooting right there. Further adding to the cognitive dissonance of liberal reporters is the fact that she was a black woman. Talk about shattering the media’s narrative!
And finally, Snochia Moseley also identified as a transgender — the media’s holiest of holy protected people in 2018. A black female transgender has to be some sort of diversity record when it comes to mass shooters. That alone should make it a more newsworthy story, but the incident has been completely abandoned by the media.
It’s also an incredible missed opportunity into exploring the causes of mass shootings. (Not that you’ll hear any of this in the mainstream media.) Curiously, everyone who knew Snochia Moseley described her as an outgoing, happy-go-lucky and well-adjusted person. Here’s where it gets really interesting. Snochia Moseley had just recently started to undergo hormone replacement therapy for her “transitioning.” Gigantic red flag, anyone?
We’ve already talked numerous times on this site about the connection between psychiatric drugs and mass shootings. Could Snochia Moseley’s hormone replacement therapy have triggered this violent reaction? (Every husband whose wife has hit menopause just nodded his head at that question.)
Taking away our guns is a non-starter. It’s never going to happen, no matter how passionately the left screeches at us. But the next time they want to “finally have a conversation about guns,” can we at least bring up some of the possible causes — such as messing with people’s hormones and brains with chemicals? So far, political correctness says “no.”
