Seth Ator, Democrat, Bernie Supporter – Why Is The Press Silent On This?

I find it interesting, everytime there is a mass shooting, the first thing the press does is dig up whom the shooter was associated with, if they are conservative, they blame the GOP, then Trump, sometimes in the opposite order, but they blame both without fail.

This time we find the press strangely silent, I saw this right after the shooting, no post on his background, nothing for anyone to see, the blame against the GOP was quiet, so I started to dig.

What I found out was Seth Ator, the Texas gunman in the latest Texas shooting was a lifetime registered Democrat, ardent Bernie Sanders Supporter, who hated Trump, amazing how this is all shut up.

What is more, we both know if this was in reverse, this man supported Trump, it would be on the front page of every site, Trump and the conservatives would be blamed for the shooting, but now the press has gone silent, am I the only one that has a problem with this hypocrisy?

Due to the fact that Seth was a Bernie supporter, I have never said that Bernie Sanders shares guilt in this, nor should I, to do so would be morally wrong, but why is it when the rolls are reversed the left feels justified to do the same in reverse?

It would be nice if these things were looked at as they should be, as evil done by people that have no problem taking lives for thrills, or whatever else drove them.

Very rarely do we see political motivation as the reason behind such killing, but we hear from the press, with politicians running for office, the blame is quick to be cast.

Here is a example of what was said a month ago in the last shootings:

With this attack we now hear silence concerning the political affiliation, no longer are they blaming Trump, and the reason for this is simple, if you start to point fingers, be careful, you will quickly find them pointing at you.

One has to wonder, when will these travesties stop being used for personal gain by the left? I am no fan of tit for tat, but I wonder, how would the left respond if we blamed this attack on them or Bernie, we all know the answer to this. Maybe it is time we start to demand the same back.
