The mainstream media is officially having a full-on field day with the Vegas shooters’ online postings, demonizing the patriot movement and basically anyone critical of the government.
In case you haven’t seen the news, the main report is that 31-year-old Jerad Miller and his 22-year-old wife Amanda shot two police in cold blood at a Las Vegas CiCi’s Pizza, left a Gadsen “Don’t Tread on Me” flag on one cop’s body and a Nazi swastika on the other’s before heading over to the Walmart across the street and yelling about how the revolution had begun.
If it sounds really stupid, that’s because it is.
Today’s reports are highlighting with fervent glee every single detail of the Millers’ anti-government, pro-liberty movement beliefs as per their Facebook posts and YouTube likes.
Take a look at just a few of today’s headlines:
Las Vegas Cop-Killers Hated Government and Left Swastika on Body
Vegas Shooters’ Facebook Pages Reveal Support of Bundy Ranch, Gun Rights
The Chilling Anti-Government, Cliven Bundy-Loving Facebook Posts of the Alleged Las Vegas Shooters
Those with even more obvious agendas are going even further:
That particular headline is from “The New Civil Rights Movement” site which posted a link to an even more telling headline:
The site Mediaite reported, “Jerad’s ‘likes’ include such conservative pages as Conservative America, Conservative Daily, Mr. Conservative, Ron Paul, the NRA, Americans for Prosperity, FreedomWorks, all in addition to conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. Amanda’s included some of the same along with the Drudge Report and Hobby Lobby.” (Their emphasis, not mine.)
Wow. Shooter Amanda Miller even liked Hobby Lobby. That’s pretty hardcore. The outlet then added this post from Miller’s Facebook page:
Mother Jones took a similar reporting route with, “Jerad Miller’s Facebook ‘likes’ include the NRA, American Patriot Media Network, Support the 2nd Amendment, The Patriot Party, Rand Paul 2016, Ron Paul, the Washington Examiner, Legalize Weed, Draft Judge Andrew Napolitano, the Heritage Foundation, FreedomWorks, American Crossroads, and Allen West,” discussing how the Millers rallied behind “cause celebre in the so-called ‘patriot’ movement” Cliven Bundy whose standoff with the Bureau of Land Management made national headlines this past April.
Cliven Bundy’s son Ammon told the Associated Press that Jerad and Amanda were maybe the only two people out of hundreds who came to protest at the Bundy Ranch who were actually asked to leave:
He said that while details were still sketchy, the Millers’ conduct was the problem. He called the couple “very radical” and said they did not “align themselves” with the protest’s main issues.
“Not very many people were asked to leave,” he said. “I think they may have been the only ones.” (source)
In the article, “Las Vegas ‘revolution’ shooters ID’d as right-wing conspiracy nuts with a deathwish,” Raw Story included this post reportedly from Jerad’s Planet Infowars page:
“How the Gov. spends billions of dollars on the war on drugs and all these missles and bombs to kill people, I think about all that money that could do to helping people instead. Creating jobs, creating happy, healthy people. I dont want a hand out. I just need a foundation to stand on. One that wont be pulled out from under me as soon as i step up on it.” [sic]
Raw story went on to report, “The same InfoWars user complained that chemtrails were causing higher levels of respiratory illness, including strep throat and ‘bronchidus,’ and he also warned that ‘Im sure the floride isnt helping much either.’”
And the following excerpt about liberty and fascism Jerad Miller posted in early May is everywhere:
“There is no greater cause to die for than liberty. To die for that cause is easy, to live for it is another matter. I will willingly die for liberty. Death, in a sense is freedom from tyranny. Death, is the easy way out. Most notably is the “suicide by cop” routine. Yes, standing before despots is dangerous and most likely does not end well for you. I know this, my wife knows this. Soon they will come for us, because they don’t like what we think, and what we say. They don’t like the fact that we, simply will not submit to fascist rule. We don’t have much, but we are willing to sacrifice everything…….for you, for your freedoms. Even if you wouldn’t let us have ours. We know who we are and what we stand for, do you?”
…along with the fact that Miller discussed people “waking up” and the pro-liberty movement images he posted online, including those expressing that the 2nd Amendment is about freedom and that Democrats want to end the Benghazi investigation.
Outlet after outlet has exploited the Millers’ pro-liberty, pro-Cliven Bundy, pro-tea party, pro-Ron/Rand Paul, pro-Constitution, pro-2nd Amendment, pro-NRA, pro-“so-called Patriot Movement,” anti-Obama, anti-government, anti-police state, anti-chemtrail, anti-fluoride, anti-drug war, anti-U.S. War on Terror, anti-fascism stance to the hilt.
Essentially, the entire kitchen sink of the alternative media and every government-admonished “crazy conspiracy theory” has been thrown together into one highly publicized shooting.
How bad is it? It’s to the point that NBC posted the following pictures with the tagline, “Jerad Miller and Amanda Miller pose for a mug shot on an unspecified date and location.”
While Jerad Miller has been arrested multiple times, the likely reason Amanda’s “mug shot” is from “an unspecified date and location” is because it’s not a mug shot at all, but one of her personal photographs taken in Las Vegas that’s been brightened and had the background Photoshopped out:
When blown up, you can even see remnants of some of the red writing that’s been left around her hair by the sloppy Photoshop job.
The second picture was posted up at Heavy.com under the headline “Jerad & Amanda Miller: The Pictures You Need to See” and Heavy is right, because I needed that much more proof that this tragedy is being pushed for all the political agenda furthering it is possibly worth…and more.
The level of propaganda is staggering.
Now if you have any legitimate criticism of the government in pretty much any area discussed in the alternative media, no matter how valid your points or beliefs may be, get ready to get lumped right in with ‘crazy right wing neo-Nazi white supremacist conspiracy theorist cop killers’.
Mere minutes after posting the above video on this story, someone already called me a “terrorist” just for pointing this straw man out.
Jerad Miller’s Facebook page can be found here. Do you know anyone who has a similar-looking Facebook page?
I just shared this picture from former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura’s page:
Wonder what the mainstream media and those who hand them their agenda would have to say about that today?
(For the record, my first guess is that Senator Dianne Feinstein would say it’s one more reason that alternative media journalists should have their First Amendment rights straight up revoked — one of her more recent pet projects along with attacking the 2nd Amendment every chance she gets.)
