It’s vital that citizens be proactive in digging for the truth in our era of liberally-managed news. Perhaps it as always been that way to some degree, and that the internet has just made the problem of the liberal slant to mainstream news more obvious.
One of the inconvenient facts for the left has been the place that Islamic beliefs have played in violent crimes. The left wishes to hush this up rather than just reporting the facts and letting things take their own course. So when a Delaware State Trooper is murdered in cold blood, the news conveniently left out some facts in its coverage.
After shooting the State Trooper multiple times, the murderer ran to his parents’ house where a 21-hour standoff occurred before the suspect was shot and killed. What was left out of the news was the fact that he was heard quoting from the Quran during this time.
The murder of this State Trooper was especially brutal. “Sealy left the passenger’s seat of a friend’s vehicle and started firing at [State Trooper] Ballard without warning in a convenience store parking lot. Ballard tried to find cover as Sealy continued firing, even as the State Trooper’s body hit the ground. Police found multiple shell casings on the bloody ground surrounding Ballard’s body.”
This is nothing more than a brutal assassination. Sealy must have been looking for any law enforcement officer to kill as there is no evidence that he and Bullard ever interacted with each other in any way.
While the media conveniently left out the part about the Islam and the Quran, State Representative Steve Smyk set the record straight in an inteview with Deleware 105.9 FM.
“‘What I can tell you is that there are people that will immediately assume that the war cry of, the Muslim war cry of “Allahu Akbar” may have been said, and I don’t know that to be true. I do know that he was a “budding jihadist” and that being said, how long was he a practicing Muslim, I’m not aware of,’ said Rep. Smyk. ‘We do know that, at the scene, during this standoff he was heard citing quotes from the Quran, what those quotes were I don’t know.'”
Now this is a simple statement of facts, something trained, professional journalists should be capable of producing, but which they refuse to do. Note that there is no hysteria, no effort to claim things that cannot be demonstrated to be true.
Perhaps if the mainstream media were to report stories in such a way, their reputation and trustworthiness wouldn’t be in the cellar.
