Sen. Ted Cruz on Friday had a prediction about the attention the media would pay to the Nation of Islam follower who killed a Capitol Police officer with his car and attacked another with a knife before being gunned down.
Suddenly, like the recent shooter in Colorado, this lunatic is going to magically disappear from the news.
If a depraved murderer doesn’t fit the woke narrative, he doesn’t exist. https://t.co/fBetdwl6gc

Cher is trending. The latest leftist cop killer, in under 24 hours, not so much. pic.twitter.com/bTtYmhVLo2

Cruz was almost right; Noah Green isn’t trending on Twitter, but he did get a write-up in Stars and Stripes that was oddly complimentary:
Noah Green, who was in his early 20s, was remembered as a stalwart defensive back on the Christopher Newport University football team before he slid into deep religiousness and paranoia that left family and friends concerned about his mental state. https://t.co/pvatXdjWcO

He murdered a police officer. https://t.co/8Y9Q7II4eA

They’re dangerously close to “austere religious scholar” territory.

You know why it sounds like a Washington Post obituary? Because it was written by the Washington Post and reprinted by Stars and Stripes.
They’ve been awful for awhile. You’d never know from reading them they are a DoD published newspaper.

The US military’s so-called publications coming out and absolutely backing the Nation of Islam terrorist assassins.

Why in some cases is mental illness the issue, while, in others, it’s automatically white supremacy?

And didn’t someone do that last week in Boulder? How soon the media forgets. Oh right, not a white supremist, right @CNN ?

They take a harder stance against Tucker Carlson than someone who murdered a cop

No, he’s now remembered as an extremist cop killer, no matter how much you try to sugarcoat it.

Sympathy for the radical terrorist is not a good look.

He was a mostly peaceful starting DB

He switched from defense to offense pretty fast.

He killed a Capitol policeman, and it cost him his life, how about we don't honor him?

Deep religiousness? That doesn't seem like an accurate description. May want to rethink that.

Stick to military news. Don't rationalize/honor extremism. Shameful.
— Pesky Pat WTP ?? (@wholigoon) April 3, 2021
How about we honor the man he killed and not the killer?

This is why I don’t support you clowns. I know who runs your propaganda machine now.
You’re so afraid to call him what he was, a radicalized follower of a certain religion and death cult.
But at least you didn’t offend Nick Cannon.
