Two days after “raging anti-Semite” Frazier Glenn Miller murdered three people at the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park, Kansas, liberal media have suddenly lost interest in Miller’s crime. Donald Douglas explains we need not wonder why:
Legal Insurrection points us to the Kansas murder suspect’s posting at [Vanguard News Network], where he extolls far-left anti-Semitic Israel-hater Max Blumenthal, “Jew journalist Max Blumenthal exposes and explains this attempt by a foreign government Israel, to buy the presidential election for the neo-con, war-mongering republican establishment.”
And don’t forget, Max Blumenthal is a Democrat (his first book was a literally unhinged attack on the Republican Party). Indeed, his father Sidney Blumenthal, one of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s closest aides and confidantes, launched a major campaign to defend son Max against “liberal” (liberal!) attacks on his rabidly anti-Semitic book, Goliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel.
Now that Miller’s clear connection to the Left has been documented, the media narrative — which originally focused on the killer’s “right-wing” ideology as a motive — will shift to a more generalized “extremist” description, so as to obscure Miller’s anti-GOP, anti-Israel, anti-“neocon” orientation. Miller will cease to be a subject of national interest, much like Jared Loughner’s Tucson massacre faded from the headlines once it was learned that Loughner was obsessed with the 9-11 “Truther” conspiracy theory video Zeitgeist. The motives of murderers are of interest to the national media only if the story can be framed as a narrative to advance the liberal agenda.
