People wouldn’t hate the mainstream media so much if they simply presented the news in as unbiased a fashion as possible. Every single school shooting we get the “ban guns” narrative shoved down our throats. Anyone with a morsel of honesty in their bones knows that guns aren’t the problem. You know what wasn’t really reported on in the MSM for the newest Colorado shooting? One of the shooters was trans. Both were very left-leaning. Devon posted anti-Trump and anti-Christian posts, and praised Obama. At least one of them came from a single parent household. A little more about Maya McKinney. Sorry, Alec McKinney.
Online postings apparently made by the younger suspect in the Colorado charter school shooting paint a conflicting picture — one of an average teen who likes hanging out with his friends, and another that shows a tortured kid who experimented with drugs, detested his classmates and was struggling to fit in.
Maya McKinney, a 16-year-old who’s undergoing a female-to-male transition and who goes by Alec, and Devon Erickson, 18, are accused of entering STEM School Highland Ranch outside Denver on Tuesday with two handguns that authorities say they used to kill one of their classmates and injure eight others.
And further down:
Another message he retweeted in November pointed to a possible mental health issue with the statement: “depression loves to seal everything I love.”
KoolCid1992 also tweeted about his mom and how she’s handled changes in his behavior.
“*my mom talking to me about how she hates the new alec*,” the tweet begins.
“Mom: I miss my Alec can you find him for me
Me: I miss my dad can you find him for me yeeeehaw gotem.”
Finally, on April 29, just over a week before the shooting, he wrote an ominous tweet.
“When you’re putting yourself in life threatening danger ,” the suspect wrote, with no further explanation.
But no, it’s the gun’s fault. Always the guns.
Both of these teens were clearly very troubled. Here in clown world, where values are inverted and morals are perverted, these shootings become less surprising every day. The MSM winds these people up with their lies and sensationalism. All sorts of bad behavior are normalized and praised. This is what happens in a society devoid of any moral compass.
It has been talked about before, just not in the mainstream media, but the one rather consistent commonality between all of these shooters is that nearly all of them come from a single parent household, notably ones in which the father was absent.
As noted by University of Virginia Professor Brad Wilcox in 2013, “nearly every shooting over the last year in Wikipedia’s ‘list of U.S. school attacks’ involved a young man whose parents divorced or never married in the first place.” Additionally, a study on older male shooters found similar connections to growing up fatherless.
Writing at The Federalist in 2015, Peter Hasson highlighted the fact that of all the shootings on CNN’s “27 Deadliest Mass Shootings In U.S. History” list committed by young males since 2005, only one was raised by his biological father.
The most recent Florida school shooter, too, had no father figure, as his adoptive father died when the suspect was just a boy.
Hasson also distilled the jarring corelation between fatherless homes and general male violence:
Violence? There’s a direct correlation between fatherless children and teen violence. Suicide? Fatherless children are more than twice as likely to commit suicide. Dropping out of school? Seventy-one percent of high school dropouts came from a fatherless background. Drug use? According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, “Fatherless children are at a dramatically greater risk of drug and alcohol abuse.” How about guns? Two of the strongest correlations with gun homicides are growing up in a fatherless household and dropping out of school, which itself is directly related to lack of an active or present father.
This clear connection is being lazily and intentionally addressed by the Left — if at all— as more evidence to further squash masculinity, which they’ve deemed “toxic.” (Admitting the importance of the nuclear family and depriving feminists of their “go, girl!” salutes is apparently a bridge too far.)
Mental health issues and broken families are much more likely causes to the shooting than guns. Why can’t that be honestly discussed? We all know the reason why, but that’s the question the average American should be asking themselves. Mainstream news is not to keep people informed, it is to shape their minds. If people looked at who owned these outlets, and considered for a moment that just maybe these people had their own objectives in mind beyond reporting the news, we might actually get somewhere.
