You always have to do the establishment media’s work for them. Early on there was a report that Harry Burkhart was a 55-year old German man. Then, after the arrest, and after several hours of delaying the announcement of his identity, the police finally said that their suspect was a 24-year old German. And then there was the mention of the Chechen papers. And then the hatred for America, and the violent outburst in the courtroom over his mother’s deportation, and his arrogant sense of entitlement that he and his mother should be allowed to live in America, the land he hates. (The reason given why he committed the arsons.)
You have to piece it together, it takes several days, meanwhile the elites and the establishment media have been purposefully enabling the lie that the man is an ethnic German and the blogosphere has been afire with everyone slandering Germans, whites in general, and committing taqiyya by pretending equivalence between this event by a putative German ethnic and the thousands of examples of jihad around the world every day. “See, see? White people are terrorists too! Germans.” And then making the obligatory Hitler reference.
However, this man is a Chechen (I had guessed Turk – the largest Muslim population in Germany – when the story first broke when the only thing we had to go on was he was from Germany – like Mohamed Atta, Marwan al-Shehhi, Ziad Jarrah, and Ramzi bin al-Shibh were “from Germany”), we then have to extrapolate from the age differential that he stole the identity of a 55-year old German man (the real Harry Burkhart), and he and his mother have been living in the U.S. on the taxpayers’ dime using the fake identity, while the mother has been wanted in Germany for some crime. (The reason for her deportation.)
But the banner headlines have read for days out of Los Angeles that it was a white, German and that’s the lie that everyone will remember, even if the truth finally leaks out despite the best efforts of the elites. Much like we were regaled for months by the ubiquitous Sgt. Moose who assured us that the Beltway Sniper was a “white man in a white van” with that story’s 24/7, wall-to-wall headlines, until it turned out that the shooter was actually a Black Muslim and his twink. Then, suddenly, … >crickets<
Because the police won’t tell you this (that he’s Chechen), and the media stonewalls the information that is available. (Effectively, the people who purchase their news from the drive-bys are paying them to lie to them.) But here in NYC when someone threw Molotov cocktails at four sites in Queens, every politician was bruising each other in the ribs to be the first to the microphone to lecture white America for their firebombing a mosque and some homes owned by Muslims (how was it known before the first news reports that those homes were owned by Muslims?), that this is a despicable example of Islamophobia (an invented concept by a Muslim Brotherhood front group), that the United States is an inclusive society and there will be no tolerance for such obvious bias crimes, yadda, yadda. Until, of course, it turned out to be a disgruntled black shoplifter from a store that was one of the targeted sites. Then, suddenly, it was, “Move along. There’s nothing to see here.” The story suddenly died. No follow up stories to read, and there won’t be. Because it wasn’t a white Tea Party member. Now THAT would be a media feeding frenzy if had been one of them.
So when there is no bias (two houses, a mosque , and a Hindu house of worship in Queens) there’s a media uproar decrying nonexistent “Islamophobia”, but when there is true bias (jihadi serial firebombing of homes and vehicles in LA out of hatred of infidels) no one even learns that it was a Muslim jihadist who did it. And then, on top of that, this true bias crime in LA even gets blamed on ethnic Germans rather than the Chechen Islamist who did it.
