Media Finds School Shooter's Politics Highly Relevant, So, Unfortunately, You Know What That Means

Steve Scalise's assassin's politics? Not important. In fact, Steve Scalise's assassin wasn't even important himself -- the media stopped most reporting on it after a mere 4 days, and stopped all reporting on it after 12.

Rand Paul's assailant's politics? Not important. The media pushed the attacker's lawyer's claim that this was a personal dispute over grass clippings and then, when that was proven a lie, neatly forgot to report on the rabid left-wing attacker's motives.

But now motives in otherwise inexplicable violence are important again -- so that must mean the shooter was right-wing (or could be claimed to be right-wing).

Cruz exhibited right-wing politics in high school as well, former classmates told The Daily Beast. Two said he wore a "Make America Great Again" hat in school. An Instagram account associated with Cruz features a photo of him wearing the hat and a red, white, and blue bandana over his face.

"I saw him wear a Trump hat," said Sebastian Gonzalez, a 19-year-old who graduated from the high school in 2017. "At our school you were sort of with Trump or really against Trump."

Ocean Parodie, a 17-year-old junior said that he also saw Cruz wearing the hat.

"He always wore like really patriotic shirts that seemed really extreme, like hating on the Islamic religion. For example, he would say things such as like, he would degrade islamic people as terrorists and bombers. I've seen him wear a Trump hat," Parodie said.

YouTube comments by a person of the same name spewed commentary about Antifa activists and Muslimsppshared targets of white supremacists. "Iam going to kill them in the future," one comment on a video titled "Antifa Gun Club!" read. "Im going watch them sheep fall fuck antifa i wish to kill as many as i can," another comment about six months ago read.

Meanwhile, the FBI was warned about this guy, who left a comment on a YouTube video stating flat-out he intended to be a mass school shooter, but the FBI says it failed to "fully identify" the commenter.

I can see why the FBI couldn't "fully identify" the commenter -- all he did was leave the comment under his actual legal name, along with the uncommon spelling of his first name.

It's hard to "fully identify" someone based on their full legal name and their YouTube login and their IP and all that, I guess.

Of course, the homoerotic authority-worshippers of the right, like David French, are squealing that it's just terrible to question the FBI about this grotesque and catastrophic failure.
