Three people lost their lives this morning in Fresno, California, while just going about their day like they did they day before. The only thing different was a man, presumed to be Muslim, left his house with a head full of Islamic rhetoric and heart of rage for the Caucasian race, and decided he needed to obliterate any white guy in his path from this planet. As major news outlets reported this heinous crime, the Associated Press had a much different take on the obvious that will make you sick.
The Associated Press (AP) is regarded as the leader in news for their allegedly unbiased reporting of the facts. While aggregate news sources who report the brutal truth have been under an onslaught of attack for inserting opinion in their reporting, the AP, along with other mainstream news outlets, have been the real purveyors of “fake news,” masquerading as reliable, unbiased, news outlets. However, today, they just reached a new low by essentially spitting on Fresno victims’ bodies with a sickening statement that eludes to the killer’s motive – and you won’t believe where they placed blame.
As we reported earlier, 39-year-old Kori Ali Muhammad walked around a couple streets in Fresno this morning and shot white males he saw at point blank range. Three died, others were injured. Muhammad is also suspected of a similar slaying last week at a Motel 6. Police revealed that upon arrest, the killer shouted “Allahu Akbar” and stated his hate for the white race. However, the way the Associated Press reported it was not only to eliminate all ties to Islam and his obvious racism but to deliberately translate his words to make him sound as though he was Christian.
Tennessee GOP on Twitter was first to point out the glaring difference in reporting:
Rather than noting that Muhammad shouted “Allahu Akbar,” which was real and confirmed by police, the AP reported that he said, “God is great.” While this is a translation of the Islamic saying always declared before killing infidels and is well known to all Americans by now, the AP took the sneaky route for an even sneakier reason.
Either they were deliberately distracting from the fact that he’s Muslim and acting on behalf of his beliefs, which “Allahu Akbar” would convey, or they wanted to put the attention on Christians who believe in much different God than Muslims.
It’s got to be really inconvenient to always have to look for ways to twist the truth to cater to their narrative when criminals like Muhammad and even Steve Stephens continue to prove them wrong. To keep the facade going, mainstream media outlets have no choice but to either report the facts and admit conservatives aren’t wrong or continue to put the blame where it doesn’t belong.
As usual, police are not quick to call this an act of terrorism despite the obvious details of their investigation since they have to follow certain protocol. However, it’s entirely different for a news agency to change the facts put out by authorities in an attempt to switch a religion to exonerate Islam which is always at the root of these heinous acts.
It’s time to wake up to the reality, rather than ignore it or pretend it’s not in our communities. Regardless of whether the AP and others believe this wasn’t terrorism, doesn’t change the facts and only puts people at risk who believe the rhetoric they’re shamelessly pushing.
