The contrast in coverage of the Texas synagogue hostage situation has been remarkable.
Matt Margolis is completely right. The rhetoric from the White House would be completely different if the perpetrator, the motive, and the victims weren’t as they were.
It’s curious that Psaki failed to mention that the hostage situation was in a synagogue, wouldn’t you agree? While details are slim right now, it’s very clear that the hostage-taker is Muslim, and he’s targeted Jewish people in their place of worship. Biden and members of his administration are never at a loss for words when it comes to hate crimes or even gun violence that fits a certain narrative.
That goes across the elites and the media. Change the identity groups and this would be a national story contributing to the progressive narrative, with the perpetrator’s name and face plastered everywhere as the face of evil. As it is, I’m not sure I’d even know it happened if I didn’t read a bunch of alternative media.
