Am I really Seeing the Media Pushing the “Transgender School Shooter Was Provoked?” Line?

It’s not often that you see DaTechGuy’s laws of media outrage get violated.

When I heard about the shooter in Nashville being Transgender I presumed like the school shooting in Denver that it would disappear under DaTechGuy’s Third Law of Media Outrage which states:

The MSM’s elevation and continued classification of any story as Nationally Newsworthy rather than only of local interest is in direct correlation to said story’s current ability to affirm any current Democrat/Liberal/Media meme/talking point, particularly on the subject of race or sexuality.

But looking at the responses online I suspect the media sent too “all in” on the story early and now being unable to pivot away quick enough to make it a local story per DaTechGuy’s 3rd law has decided to go all in on DaTechGuy’s 2nd Law of Media Outrage which states:

The level of acceptance of the positions and/or actions of any group or organization by the left and media is directly proportional to their current or potential value in electing liberal Democrats.

In other words it appears they’ve decided to use mass murder by an “Oppressed transgender shooter ” to attack Red states that might dare make any laws that they claim might drive such a person to murder.

In fact this usage actually fits under the 3rd law because such a narrative affirms a current Democrat/Media talking point on a matter of sexuality.

I would hope that to normal people this attempted pivot would be a bridge too far and the beginning of the end of celebrating mental illness as normal behavior to be celebrated but I suspect not because once a culture decides to go Godless it becomes a question of “how low can you go”.

I don’t think they’ve reached bottom yet.

    It saddens me to have to agree with you, but I must. Surprising, I suppose, that it took until my advanced age to accept this about our political leftists. Makes it difficult to love my neighbors as myself.

    The day it happened, the Houston news media spent all of two minutes on the story. No long shots of the school, no interviews with frightened survivors or teary families of the victims. Just woman, transgender, assault rifle, school, shooter killed, more tomorrow, next story, please.

    None of the usual treatment of a story like this.
