Patriotism Alert: Airman Shot In Heart By Anti-War Protestor; MSM Covers Up Anti-War Motive

Attempted murder is the highest form of patriotism.

Want to know the kicker? The MSM is covering up the anti-war lunatic's motive, refusing to inform the public why he shot the airman.

this 22 year old guy walked up to him and asked him if he lived in the house. When Jon said yes, the guy said “not any more” and shot him point blank in the chest. He tried to shoot him again, but his gun jammed. Jonathan made it into the house. The guy then shot himself. Turns out the guy left a couple of suicide notes stating how much he hated the military and he wanted to go out making a statement, so he chose to make his statement on Independence Day trying to kill a soldier.

The most the MSM will say is that he was "angry at the government." Angry in what way? They're not telling. They know, but they've decided the public doesn't need to know such trifling details.

The American Thinker on the media's code of leftist omerta:

If Airman Schrieken had been an abortionist or homosexual, this story would be front page news for the New York Times and the lead story on CBS News with Katie Couric for at least the next month. But since Schrieken is serving in the military, even his hometown newspaper, the Columbus Dispatch, has ignored this story.

Predictably, a law enforcement spokesman says that Marren’s suicide notes “were indicative of an individual suffering from mental-health problems”, but that raises the question of how anyone could identify anyone suffering from mental-health problems amidst those devoted to bizarre conspiracy theories and the virulent anti-Americanism of the antiwar movement. If anything, Marren would have fit right in unnoticed.

It is also worth noting that Marren was merely following the logic of the anti-war movement’s standard public rhetoric. Their language is laced with suggestive undertones justifying attacks against our military, calling our armed forces fighting the War on Terror “baby-killers”, constantly invoking the specter of Abu Ghraib, and citing their grossly inflated statistics of civilians accidentally killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Such reckless and unbalanced rhetoric (they’re not quite as adept at keeping statistics on those murdered by terrorists) fuels the hatred that drives someone like Marren to violence against a member of our own military.

They're really unbelievable, aren't they? I'd like to say nothing they can do anymore would shock me, and yet every week or so they find a way to do just that.

Racist "Code Words:" The media is ever eager to read the supposed "subtext" of "racist code words" such as "welfare queens" and the like.

Funny that they completely miss not-at-all-subtextual messages like this:

... and apparently don't ever worry that such hate speech might actually impel some of the less reality-based members of the Reality-Based Community to commit acts of violence.

If a Republican opposes amnesty, he's sending messages that it's okay to beat and kill illegal immigrants. When the left openly calls for murder, the MSM just doesn't seem capable of reading not the subtext but the actual text of their messages.

"Apparently At Random:" So the MSM describes the selection of Schrieken as a target.

Ummm, not quite random. They leftist was gunning for a US serviceman. The particular serviceman might have been "random," but the class of victim sought was not.

Question: If someone looked for black people to shoot and happened to shoot him in the heart, would the media blithely report the victim as chosen "apparently at random"? Or would it, you know, note the fact the shooter wasn't perfectly random in his choice of victim?
