"Everything Is Russia's Fault": MSM Says Pittsburgh Shooting Is Caused By "Russian Propaganda" And Trump's Behaviour

On October 27th, a gunman entered the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, opened fire and left 11 dead and 6 injured. Mainstream media is attempting to shift the blame for the shooter’s actions on US President Donald Trump and “Russian propaganda.”

Robert Bowers, 46, of suburban Baldwin, surrendered to authorities after the shooting. He has been charged with 29 federal crimes including 11 counts of murdering victims exercising their religious beliefs on what Mayor Bill Peduto called the “darkest day of Pittsburgh’s history.” Bowers is being treated for gunshot wounds and is due in court on October 29th.

It was also discovered that Bowers frequented the platform called Gab, which is a substitute Twitter that is known for gathering people with right-wing views. Gab is a relatively small social network that claims to “defend individual liberty and free expression online” has fewer restrictions on what users can post than platforms like Twitter and Facebook.

Bowers’ profile banner image included what seems to be a radar gun showing the numbers 1488, a white supremacist numeric symbol, as reported by NBC News.

Also, according to NBC News, just hours before the attack, he made a specific threat against Jews hours before Saturday’s attack, alleging that the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, or HIAS, a humanitarian nonprofit group that assists refugees, brought immigrants to the United States to do violence.

“Screw your optics, I’m going in,” he wrote.

He also frequently posted about the migrant caravan that is walking towards the US-Mexico border from Honduras to seek asylum.

MSM also tied Bowers’ views to “Russian propaganda.” His anti-Semitic posts and his hate of the caravan are allegedly tied to a viral image that appears to show refugees hopping onto the bed of a truck with a Star of David on the side. Reportedly the image has been widely shared across forums such as 4chan and the website “USA Really”, accused by the MSM of being “Russian propaganda” operation. He reposted screenshots of the caravan that had aired on Fox News earlier, among other networks, which did not mention the symbol.

He frequently reposted conspiracy theories about the image of the truck and reposted comments about it from other Gab users.

He also posted a link to a directory of synagogues participating in National Refugee Shabbat, which HIAS held this month, saying he “appreciated” the list.

NY Magazine cited US authorities who said that Bowers repeatedly shouted about his desire to kill Jews.

“They’re committing genocide to my people,” he told police officers. “I just want to kill Jews.”

This all follows the October 26th’s arrest of Florida resident Cesar Sayoc. He was charged with sending 13 explosive devices to prominent public figures, such as George Soros, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and CNN’s newsroom.

MSM once more took the chance to blame Russia for possibly being behind the mailing of the pipe bombs. On October 25th, MSNBC host Chuck Todd said that he feared that Russia may be behind the packages.

The fact of the matter is, both Sayoc and Bowers were ardent Trump supporters. Bowers was somewhat disillusioned by Trump, though, because he believed his vows that he was a nationalist. According to Bowers, Trump was a “globalist” and not a nationalist.

Thus, the fact of the matter is, both of these men were Trump supporters, had right-wing views that they took too far. There is no evidence of Russia playing any part in both incidents.

The attack by Bowers is treated as a hate crime, whereas Sayoc’s sending of the explosive devices are treated as domestic terrorism by authorities.

    The first question that I ask on any mass shooting is was the shooter on psychiatric meds that caused them to lose it? We’ve always had the lunatic fringe and a lot of guns here going back hundreds of years. And they rarely went off the deep end and went of shooting sprees. Most of these people are sick, not homicidal. It wasn’t until drugs known to cause homicidal ideation and behavior were legalized and pumped into society in large quantities that mass shootings became a regular occurrence.

    In all fairness, there’s a lot of, shall we say, ‘dislike?’ being banded about against jews on alternative news sites. I see plenty of it here as well. Is it any surprise really that some nutter picks up on that and starts taking action? It happens on all sides of the political spectrum, as after all Dutch politician Pim Fortuyn was murdered by a left wing activist after the media had for months portrayed the man as Hitler reincarnate. There are a lot of impressionable dumbasses out there.

    • You can call me Al

      Oh Barba, bless you. Exactly what they want you to believe.

      I agree with you. Its intellectually dishonest to say “the jews” did it. We know its the politcal leadership of israel america uk and france acting together in cahoots with gloval corporations to the detriment of most of the world population.

      This oversimplification is a symptom of our modern society that does not take into accounts the proper details needed. If it aint packaged neatly and cant take it in one bite then its no good.

      It frankly drives me nuts. This is so ridiculous and intellectually dishonest…we get shit like this in the end….that just help these transnational criminals.

      I am wise because i know that i know nothing.

      Thanks ancient greek wisdom.

    The thing is, its an side show, and I dont belive an single word they sate or whatever they claim on the Tube what so ever, period, untill more evidence is provided this is just an FF, based upon the initiale so called “exserice”, tyrpical of the UssA MSM, where the images of police, etc, etc flowing, not an single image of anything else is been shown.
    Tsk, tsk, tsk.

    Again, guilt by association, nice one, gooooood to have, and makes me wounder as I wrote a little hour ago, is the massive MSM whining quire about anti-semetism, and Jewhate, etc, etc, and of course, critizising ISISrael is anti-semetism to, right, and dont even try to ask for what about the Palestinians rights, yeah, noughty, noughty boy., thats jewhatingneonaziantisemetism.
    Again, the story, some of the statements are in fact true, that the MSMs dont “bother” to talk nor deal with it is their prof of this been conspiracys, ugh…. theorys.
    Go to any of this uh….. MSM sites that have an open debate forum, see what they write about, lets say NKs, Venezuelans, etc, to and what they write and state regarding Palestina, do you have the balls, andthen cut and pasit whatever from an persons history as prof of what, we are all Nazis, huh.
    Dunka, dunka
    By the way, KKK was by large DemonCrauts, they dont like to talk about that either, weird isnt it, in this Trumpbashing days.

    Hurmf.

    To be honest, they only give me an head ace, they have to take an loong hard look into whatever mirror they are cose to, because what you see, is the problem, revisionists and apologists, for genocide and ethnic cleansing, and when we talk we are condemmed, when they talk, is silenced, the MSM never reports what ISISraeli MPs says, or what their cheif rabbais, drool about Goym.
    You never learn do you, slavs.
    But then again, you where always sheeps.

    peace
