“Charleston, South Carolina (CNN) Dylann Roof told jurors who hold his life in their hands Tuesday that he still feels he had to massacre the people gathered for Bible study last year at a historically black Charleston church.
“In my confession to the FBI I told them that I had to do it, and obviously that’s not really true. … I didn’t have to do anything,” Roof said as he made his own five-minute closing argument in the penalty phase of his federal trial. “But what I meant when I said that was, I felt like I had to do it, and I still do feel like I had to do it.” …”
Why does Dylann Roof keep saying he felt like he “had to do it?”
It’s because he was radicalized by the coverage of the Trayvon Martin case. He discovered that the Lügenpresse covers up black-on-White crime while promoting the false narrative that blacks are routinely victimized by Whites. He went into that church and murdered those people because he was incensed by a sense of injustice.
Guess what? Dylann Roof probably knows nothing about what happened in Chicago. The SPLC Hatewatch had nothing to say about what happened in Chicago. President-Elect Trump had nothing to say about what happened in Chicago. The Lügenpresse had already buried the story even before last weekend.
Yes, Dylann Roof’s behavior was a crazy and unjustifiable overreaction, but isn’t it remarkable how quickly Christopher Dorner, Vester Flanagan II, Ismaaiyl Brinsley, Christopher Harper-Mercer, Micah X., Cosmo Setepenra and the Chicago Four were sent down the memory hole? Isn’t it telling how the so-called “watchdog organizations” who are in the business of “fighting hate” acted like Chicago didn’t even happen?
In all the coverage of the Dylann Roof trial, I have never seen the Lügenpresse admit once that their coverage of black crime might have had anything to do with what happened in Charleston. There has been no introspection. Nothing has changed. If anything is true, the problem has gotten worse since Charleston. It’s a safe bet that there are more of these “wound collectors” out there and they see The Standard as clearly as we do.
The Standard is that crimes which fit The Narrative are hyped. Those which don’t fit The Narrative are ignored and forgotten. It has become such a glaring problem that the Russians have taken notice.
Note: In his journal, Dylann Roof took sole responsibility for his actions. If you haven’t already done so, read the whole thing. It sheds new light on his motivations.
Update: Dylann Roof gets the death penalty.
Update 2: I’ve been alerted that the SPLC actually did release a statement on Chicago – it was in their News section, not the Hatewatch which I browse. It is a paragraph from Richard Cohen. I suppose that is better than nothing. BTW, I am not a fan of the redesign.
