Socialist’: Media Largely Ignore Ideological Declaration by Killer of Five in West Virginia
On Tuesday, The Blaze posted extensive reports on the mass shootings in both Nevada and West Virginia.
Both stories involved elements regarding the U.S. military. In Nevada, of course, many of the victims were in the National Guard. The gunman’s motives, though, are still not entirely clear.
The shooter in West Virginia, who killed five people (and also an unborn fetus) in one home, seemed to voice a variety of grievances including some anger at having been rejected for military service.
Shayne Riggleman’s murderous actions are getting a great deal of media attention; however, few media outlets are including Riggleman’s self-declaration of his Socialist ideology.
