All weekend the far left media only reported on the NFL/Trump controversy, choosing to ignore a mass shooting by a Sudanese black migrant in Tennessee. The shooting killed a white mother of two and injured six other, including the pastor. The far left media decided it was much more important to report on entitled millionaires who are refusing to stand for the anthem.
Emanuel Kidega Samson is the name of the killer from Sudan. He first murdered Melanie Smith, 39, before going into the Burnette Chapel Church of Christ and firing bullets at the others. He was only stopped by a heroic act by 22-year-old Caleb Engle who pistol whipped the migrant in the face and held tightly until Samson shot himself on accident. After that Engle went and got his gun from his car and stood on guard until police arrived on the scene.
There was an incredible column in The Blaze by Matt Walsh. Check it out.
Maybe you read about this story on page 14 of the newspaper. I’m not exaggerating, either. The New York Times put this mass shooting on page 14. The front page was dominated by athletes kneeling. Or perhaps you heard it mentioned in a 12-second blurb at the end of a cable newscast last night. I flipped through a few different channels and didn’t hear it even mentioned one time, but maybe they got around to it. Of course, in a 60-minute broadcast they had to allot at least 59 minutes to cataloging the posture of NFL players. If you managed to sit through all of that, you may have heard the “P.S. There was a mass shooting at a church today okay that’s all goodnight” at the end.
The church shooting does no favors to the liberal narrative, so it must be ignored. The shooter was black. He’s a Sudanese immigrant. He killed a white woman. He was stopped by a good guy with a gun. If the races were switched and you removed the pesky pro-Second Amendment element of the story, perhaps it may have fighting chance to compete with choreographed protests in professional sports for airtime.
The humble Engle has since issued a statement commending police and first responders, while downplaying his heroic act. It just doesn’t fit the agenda of the far left media to report on a humble hero, so they moved past this story.
Like Walsh said in his brutal takedown of the media’s choice to ignore this: “In case you’re wondering, media: This why people despise you.”
