Yesterday I was on twitter When I guy named Kyle Clark out of Denver who appears to be a blue checked journalist tweeted out something concerning the murders at the gay nightclub in Colorado that I decided was worth a response:

This led to a long exchange with someone called link12212 who did not care for my response. I pointed out that per the collective guilt argument he was making leftists as a whole responsible for burning of cities, the mass shooting in Milwaukee after an NBA playoff game, the mass murder in Waukesha, the attempted copy cat attack in Winter Garden and of course any attack on any Mosque or member of Islam since they of course happily execute gays simply for being gay.

You can read the full exchange from those tweets as these events are a great example of DaTechGuy’s 3rd 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.

This of course fits things to a T as the left as a whole was busy targeting conservatives over this all morning. But while I was at work an interesting development took place:

The public defenders for the suspect in the mass shooting at a Colorado Springs LGBTQ nightclub said in a Tuesday night court filing obtained by a New York Times reporter that their client is non-binary and uses they/them pronouns.

This is a really devastating to the whole “Blame Tucker Carlson” business that Link closed our exchange on:

So given what we’ve seen from the MSM in the past I suspect that the Murders at the Colorado gay bar will go from a national story to a local story faster than you can say: Secoriea Turner or as Ed Driscoll put it at Instapundit:

AND JUST LIKE THAT, THE MEMORY HOLE OPENS UP

Unexpectedly of course

Now while the loss of Mr. Link122 supposed moral high ground from which he played the collective guilt card might be problematic with a nonbinary killer this of course changes nothing for me as my opinion can remain constant, namely that regardless of his pronouns MX Aldrich be held responsible for his crime and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law rather than blaming others.

See how much easier that is.

Update: The moment the story became a local one live on CNN

Update 2: Two awful thoughts

  1. Could the decision not to prosecute the previous crime and the sealing of the records be related to the killers non-binary status?
  2. How will the families of the dead react when the media suddenly decides the killing of their loved ones are no longer newsworthy?

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.

DaTechGuy’s Third Law of Media Outrage

Via Don Surber I’m old enough to remember when the War on Christmas didn’t look like a real war:

Local police told local outlet WFTV 9 that law enforcement was just starting to block the streets to be used for the route of the Golf Cart Christmas Parade when the car traveling at a high rate of speed came careening toward the gathered crowd. A police officer trying to slow the driver down was almost hit.

According to police, Baker continued to accelerate and plowed into another car nearby. A foot pursuit ensued when the driver ran away and was apprehended by an off-duty officer from another jurisdiction who was in the crowd.

It’s looks like Terryous Jorelle Baker our Waukesha wanna be was foiled before he could get a body count:

According to WFTV, an officer said he was waiting for the parade to begin when someone flagged him down; a white Toyota Highlander had been hit by a speeding car. The police report stated that the other officer directing traffic for the parade had stepped into the road and “projected” his voice to tell the driver to “slow down.” At that moment, the officer “heard the engine rev” and the vehicle sped up “coming right at him.” Police records show police found a plastic baggie with two pills in Baker’s pocket. Two children were in the car with Baker that night.

Baker was charged with having no valid driver’s license, possession of narcotics without a prescription, aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, and child neglect. Baker told police that he ran because he knew he had a warrant.

Now you would think this would be a big story in the media considering the Waukesha Massacre but per DaTechGuy’s 3rd law of Media Outrage the MSM apparently considers this a local story unworthy of further attention:

Terryous Jorelle Baker and Elizabeth Chavez, arrested in the incident

I can’t imagine why.
