As Twitchy noted, the Denver Post published a profile of Arapahoe High School shooter Karl Pierson, describing the 18-year-old as having “very strong beliefs about gun laws and stuff” and holding political beliefs “outside the mainstream.” Ah, a Tea Partyer, huh? Oh, and a classmate also described Pierson as “a very opinionated socialist” — at least that’s how the Denver Post’s account read, until a stealth edit changed the sentence to read simply, “very opinionated.”
Why scrub the word “socialist”? Attorney and Ace of Spades HQ co-blogger Gabriel Malor has compiled a list of shootings, stabbings, terrorist plots and other attacks, along with the ideologies of the perpetrators, and the picture they paint is certainly not one of a Tea Partyer — not that the media would report that.
Fortunately, some are willing to do the job the mainstream media won’t do.
