CA:Why hasn’t the left tried to exploit the Santa Monica shootings?
americaswatchtower.com ^| 9 June, 2013 | NA

We see it time and time again: Every time some madman opens fire on innocent people the Democrats almost immediately use the tragedy to push for gun control laws and the all too willing media quickly jump on board to begin pushing the government’s propaganda. Where most of us see tragedy the left sees opportunity.

We saw it with the Virginia Tech shooting, and we saw it when Gabby Giffords was shot, and we saw it when a madman opened fire in a Colorado movie theater. Most recently we saw it in the Newtown school shooting so I fully expected we would once again see it when a man opened fire in Santa Monica the other day and killed five people.

In fact I thought they would go even further than that because I expected to hear the left blame the Republicans and the conservatives in the Congress for the shooting because they failed to pass gun control legislation in the wake of the Newtown shooting, but to this point–with the exception of Henry Waxman–we haven’t heard a word about it and I found that to be quite curious indeed. It isn’t like the left to let a good crisis go to waste, so why are they not speaking out and trying to exploit this shooting?

It turns out the shooter’s name was John Zawahri, he is of Middle Eastern descent (reportedly Lebanese) and his next of kin all happen to be out of the country at this time. That is all we know about Zawahri at this point, we do not know if he was a Muslim and we do not know the motive although it is being reported it was possibly over the divorce of his parents.

Could it really be so simple? Is the mere fact that this man may have been a Muslim enough to silence the left and the media and stop them from once again exploiting a shooting for political purposes? Could it be true that the left isn’t interested in exploiting this story because of the slight possibility that this shooting could be tied to the religion of peace they are afraid if they do so they would unwittingly shine a light on a problem they refuse to believe still exists? After all, this is the regime that classified the Fort Hood shooting as workplace violence in order to hide from the truth.

Of course, it doesn't fit the narrative of the "crazy white autist" shooting innocents out of teenage angst.

Just look at the Moms Demand Action propaganda. Notice a similarity between the kids holding the guns in all the ads, and all the minorities that aren't?

Well, ain't that something. Evil white kids holding a big scary assault rifle while the innocent minorities hold books or a basketball.

Let's just ignore the fact that the vast majority of firearm homicides are caused by minorities.

So you really enjoy gun violence since many victims aren't white.
I know what that makes you, and American, patriotic, and Christian are none of them.

I bet you're one of those posters that tried convincing everyone after the Boston Marathon that the bombers were really white.

Why has the Santa Monica shooter case fallen into the abyss??

Kind of strange a shooter walks onto a college campus, multiple people killed at his hand, anti-gun "advocates" run amok yet there's been very little about this case since the day it happened?? hmmmm...

They even have surveilance video of him armed and entering the building. It was even an AR-15, their favorite gun to come out against. There was no video or photo's of anything like that at Sandy Hook, sure makes you wonder what's going on. Nothing is normal anymore.

That's exactly it. Seeing an angry Muslim shooting random people would make Americans more likely to want a firearm to defend themselves with.

They only report about mass shootings excessively when the shooter can be referred to as a stereotypical "gun nut" by anti-gun advocates.

A brown Muslim doesn't fit the script.
