The media became suddenly silent about the shooting at the synagogue in Poway California after we found out that it was an armed off-duty border patrol agent who stopped a massacre form happening. The media knew that they could not win that particular narrative battle, so they halted the 24 hour segments that we usually see when something like this happens.
The same media has also become suddenly silent about Tuesday’s shooting at the STEM School in Highlands Ranch, CO. Why? Because one of the suspects was transgender, the other was gay, and both openly voiced their hatred towards Christians and Trump. The media can not win this narrative battle, so they went effectively silent yet again.
The first suspect is Devon Erickson, a gay 18-year-old high school student who has worked as an actor in Colorado. He was identified by authorities as one of the two shooters accused of wounding nine students in a K-12 STEM school located in Douglas County.
The second accused shooter has now been identified as Alec McKinney. You can read about Alec here. Alec is identified in court records as Maya McKinney, but a Denver television station reports that McKinney is transgender and transitioning to male. The judge didn’t allow video or photos in McKinney’s court hearing; Noelle Phillips of The Denver Post reported that McKinney’s lawyer said McKinney goes by Alec and uses the pronoun he.
A friend of both of them wrote on Instagram that Devon “did not do what he did because he’s liberal or to make a statement. He did it due to internal struggles. They’re both struggling with mental health issues and this is a time for awareness. Alec did not do this because he’s trans, but had people supported him in the way that he needed and deserved, he would not have struggled so much that he got pushed over the edge.”
