BREAKING: Oregon Gunman’s Social Network Found… Media Silent Because of HUGE Detail
Roseburg, Oregon, gunman Chris Harper-Mercer may have been killed yesterday in a shootout with police, but his social media footprint leaves behind a portrait of the kind of deranged sicko who would commit such a heinous act.
Among the details authorities have allegedly found was one detail the media doesn’t want to report on — a MySpace account on which he was friends with an apparent Islamic terror supporter.
According to The Daily Beast, Harper-Mercer’s account on the nearly-dead social media site included two contacts, one male and one female. The male, Mahmoud Ali Ehsani, had pictures of “Mujahideen” from around the world on his account, as well as a post in which he wrote “kill the Jews.”
Harper-Mercer’s page on the site contained praise for terrorists, albeit of a different stripe — the gunman who killed up to 13 people at Umpqua Community College had material glorifying members of the Irish Republican Army.
A blog linked to Harper-Mercer also contained praise for Roanoke shooter Vester Lee Flanagan, saying that people “like him have nothing left to live for.”
“On an interesting note, I have noticed that so many people like him are all alone and unknown, yet when they spill a little blood, the whole world knows who they are,” Harper-Mercer wrote.
“A man who was known by no one, is now known by everyone. His face splashed across every screen, his name across the lips of every person on the planet, all in the course of one day. Seems the more people you kill, the more you’re in the limelight.”
The Washington Times also reported that Harper-Mercer’s shooting was likely a hate crime, as he specifically targeted Christians during his rampage.
Stacey Boylan, the mother of a witness to the shooting, told reporters that he asked potential victims whether or not they were Christian.
“And they would stand up and he said, ‘Good, because you’re a Christian, you’re going to see God in just about one second.’ And then he shot and killed them.”
Of course, President Obama mentioned little or none of this in his speech on the matter last night, blaming the entire incident on guns. The press, sadly, went along with him, refusing to report almost everything that contradicted that — especially the suspect’s link to a supporter of Islamic terrorism.
Once and for all, it’s time for the mainstream media to report all of the facts behind a mass shooting — not just the ones that fit their narrative.
