Why has the media’s reporting on gun violence surged even as gun violence has fallen in half since the early 1990s? Because in absence of reality, they have to try to control the narrative to convince people what they should believe is true.
So while gun violence is tanking like a rock, most of the public is completely unaware. When the Pew Research Center polled people, only 10% were aware that gun crime had gone down since the 1990s. It’s impressive that support for gun control is so low despite that!
The latest narrative they want to control? That of illegal immigrant crime.
They were happy to report the story of a man in Franklin County who decapitated his own mother. Inside the home, deputies found 35-year-old Yesenia Funes Beatriz Machado dead. Her head was reportedly in her son’s hands when police arrived at the “gruesome scene.”
And who was her son? According to Breitbart:
Oliver Mauricio Funes-Machada, 18, has been confirmed to Breitbart Texas by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency as an illegal immigrant living in North Carolina from Honduras.
“ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) has issued a detainer for Oliver Funes-Machado, an unlawfully present Honduran national, following his arrest March 6 on local charges in Franklin County, North Carolina,” ICE Communications Director Bryan Cox told Breitbart Texas.
Funes-Machada allegedly killed 35-year-old Yesenia Funes Beatriz Machada by severing her head, and then allegedly carrying her head in his hands, along with a butcher knife, down the street, according to the Charlotte Observer.
Check any mainstream reporting on the murder, and few mention that the man responsible was an illegal immigrant. Could it possibly be that they don’t want to give any credibility to Donald Trump for bringing attention to the epidemic of illegal immigration center stage? There’s close to a 100% chance that’s the case.
