Oregon shooter came from gun-free UK supported liberal terrorist group; MSM reports skew truth to smear gun owners, conservatives

(NaturalNews) When crazy Dylann Roof waltzed into the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina, the evening of June 17 this year, and killed nine black worshippers, the mainstream media dutifully reported the senseless, brutal attack. When it was learned that Roof — a virtual loner and high-school dropout — had espoused white supremacist views, posed often with a Confederate battle flag and said he committed the shooting in hopes of igniting "a race war," the mainstream media went wild with the story and covered it non-stop for weeks.
That's because it had all the ingredients of exactly the kind of narrative the left-wing biased mainstream media regularly pursues: whites are evil, bigoted racists who secretly and frequently plot to harm blacks and other minorities, and "this Dylann Roof kid just proves it." The incident and subsequent reporting even sparked the interest of our ever race-conscious president, who has never missed an opportunity to lecture Americans on the subject of ethnic-related violence — unless, of course, it's black-on-black crime.
Which brings us to the latest mass-shooting incident, the one that occurred recently at a small community college in Oregon. The coverage in this case is different from the way stories of this nature are usually reported — it is not as in-depth, and there have been several attempts to either propagandize it (as Obama did with an immediate post-shooting presser wherein he did his usual song-and-dance about "more gun control") or to change, delete or omit key information about the shooter, who shall not be named here.
Fashioning a narrativeFor one, as the story above indicates, the race of the shooter — who had a white father and a black mother — has regularly been misidentified as being "white" when he clearly is not. The media is covering up aspects of his personal life that do not conform with their preconceived notions and narratives about shooters who commit these kinds of crimes. In other words, the Oregon killer's narrative doesn't match that of Dylann Roof's, so certain facts are either changed (his race) or omitted — like the fact that he was a supporter of the old Irish Republican Army, a far left organization that warred with Great Britain for decades.
The shooter, who was British, moved to the U.S. at a young age, as reported by Breitbart London. The site further noted:
"His social media profiles indicated support for the IRA, the terrorist movement that attacked British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, and conducted a spate of terror attacks across the United Kingdom during an [sic] period called The Troubles."
Further, he was associated with the online username "ironcross45" which the U.K.'s Express newspaper claimed might be "a possible reference to the Iron Cross, a German military symbol reintroduced by the Nazis" (actually, it was an award, and a very high one, usually given to officers with established party loyalty).
IRA ties, not "conservative" ties"A user with the same name spent almost £100 on a Nazi SS officer's cap on a different website more than two years ago," the paper added.
In addition, a video posted on the Oregon killer's MySpace page is titled, "The Men Behind the Wire," a classic 1971 Irish republican anthem that urges support for jailed IRA terrorists, featuring images of balaclava-clad men carrying rifles.
The killer also posted what are thought to be sympathetic pictures of IRA terrorists, including one that read, "Undefeated Army," and another that quoted terrorist Bobby Sands, who died while in British custody due to a hunger strike.
"They have nothing in their whole imperial arsenal that can break the spirit of one Irishman who doesn't want to be broken," the quote reads.
Meanwhile, left-leaning media outlets had seized on the killer's portrayal of himself in an online dating profile as "conservative, Republican," but it isn't yet known if that was tied to his referencing of Irish Republican views, which he shared once with the late Sen. Ted Kennedy, a leading Democrat during his Senate tenure, and Rep. Peter King of New York, a Republican only in name.
