The Two Things That Raise Eyebrows About the El Paso Shooting

There is no question that the recent shootings in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas were a tragedy. As well, these shootings can be seen as nothing less than acts of domestic terrorism (they fit the basic definition of terrorism, and they were domestic at their core). But the El Paso shooting stands out as a hand over-played by the Progressive-Fascist Left, both domestically and internationally.

As usual, the mainstream media is committing sins of omission at a fast and furious rate – pun intended. Even as they paint the societally dysfunctional shooter, Patrick Crusius, as a “white nationalist”, they are conveniently leaving out his self-declaration as a neo-Progressive; a self-declaration proven by his own hand in his “manifesto”.

Gateway Pundit points out that Crusius was a proponent of both basic universal income and universal healthcare, two goals only valued by the Progressive-Fascist Left:

“In the near future, America will have to initiate a basic universal income to prevent widespread poverty and civil unrest as people lose their jobs (to automation). Joblessness is in itself a source of civil unrest…Achieving ambitious social projects like universal healthcare and UBI would become far more likely to succeed if tens of millions of defendants are removed.”

He also comments on his environmental leanings to include blame for any and all environmental decline resting with Capitalism:

“The decimation of our environment is creating a massive burden for future generations. Corporations are heading the destruction of our environment by shamelessly overharvesting resources.”

These are hardly the words of a Capitalist, a Conservative, a Libertarian, or a devotee of the President’s. In fact, these are the words of the Ocasio-Cortez Left; the Progressive-Fascist Left. So it is that once again the mainstream media is executing ideological and political dishonesty in its overt activism. Where they are making Crusius sound like a Trump supporter, he is actually a supporter of the fringe Left, although one could hardly deduce that from their coverage.

Then we have the international one-world, Progressive-Fascist disingenuousness. Mexico’s Foreign Minister, Marcelo Ebrard, as much as said his government was going to hold the United States legally responsible for the endangerment of Mexican nationals in El Paso.

FOX News reports Ebrard as saying:

“The president of the Republic has instructed me so that this posture and indignation from Mexico is translated, first in protecting affected families, and then in legal actions, efficient and prompt, quick and convincing so that Mexico can demand the conditions to protect to the Mexican-American community and Mexicans in the United States,” (emphasis mine).

Excuse me?!

While not every Mexican national who illegally crosses into the United States is a violent criminal or a drug cartel-related operative, there is a good percentage who are. There are reports daily of lives ended tragically, senselessly, and unnecessarily by illegal immigrants who have often been ordered deported and who disappeared into the sanctuary city mist. These Mexican nationals have committed crimes against American citizens; citizens the United States government has a duty to protect from “enemies foreign and domestic” – like illegal immigrants from Mexico who would even be considered criminals in their own country.

It takes a real set of cojones for Ebrard and his government to even suggest legal action against the United States in the wake of this senseless tragedy. It is an international insult to the United States and President Trump would be well within his moral and ethical right to shut the Mexican border completely citing their exact demand in reverse: we demand the conditions to protect American citizens from criminals who choose to violate our immigration laws to affect violent crime in our country.

As the mainstream media, the Democrats, and the Progressive-Fascists play politics with this heart-wrenching act of violence keep in mind that they are advancing a false narrative even as they try to emotionalize the event for their own ideological purposes. Repulsive doesn’t even begin to summarize their intents, words, and actions.

My sincere condolences and prayers to all who are affected by this event.

  1. In all of WWII between 50 and 60 million died. Since 1973, 62 million unborn citizens have been institutionally murdered.

    How better to destroy the family unit – the foundation of a moral society – but to institutionally murder its most helpless members?

    The Supreme Court of the United States perverted the meaning of the 14th Amendment to invent law that legalized the murder of the innocent. Yet Congress could have dismissed the Court Ruling long ago with Federal Legislation overturning Roe v. Wade. But they have not done so, lo these past 45 years.


    Our nation has been found wanting. We are now divided to be carried away by the “Medes and the Persians”! Judgment is already being poured out. But, unlike Belshazzar, we live in a age of grace and forgiveness. Over 70% of Americans favor some kind of law protecting unborn children. There is a growing storm against institutionalize abortion. The Government responsible for this holocaust is DOOMED, but we as a nation still have the opportunity to avoid enslavement.

    The finger pointing of Politicians is an utterly futile EXCUSE!! The true failure has been the abandonment of Principles and Virtues, for the sake of the false gods of Baal, Ashtart and man himself.
