The Boulder, Colorado mass shooting suspect was a Trump-hating, Washington Post reader who shared the paper’s hatred of Donald Trump.
Ahmad Al-Issa was arrested after killing 10 people, including a police officer, during a shooting spree inside the King Soopers grocery store on Monday afternoon.
Since the shooting, it emerged that the suspect was an avid reader of left-leaning news outlets, an ISIS sympathizer, Muslim and an anti-Trump activist. All of these facts have been ignored by the same media outlets the shooter was a fan of.
Facebook deleted a page belonging to Al-Issa that revealed the gunman was anti-Trump and had promoted pro-refugee, anti-Islamophobia talking points.
Summit.news reports: Al-Issa, who was born in Syria and migrated to the United States, made posts in 2018 in which he stated, “Trump is such a dick,” while blaming “racism” for his 2016 victory.
The gunman also shared a PBS article with the text, “Why refugees and immigrants are good for America,” while also accusing “racist, Islamophobic people” of hacking his phone.
Commenting on the 2019 New Zealand mosque massacre, Al-Issa said, “They were victims of the entire Islamophobia industry that vilified them.”
Journalist Andy Ngo reports that the page also revealed Al-Issa to be a “deeply religious Muslim.”
