CNN Finally Admits Ohio Shooter Was Leftist, But News Hosts Don’t Mention

CNN has finally admitted that the Ohio shooter, unlike the El Paso shooter, was an Anti-Trump, Anti-Police leftist that supported Elizabeth Warren.

A CNN piece from Paul P. Murphy writes:

A Twitter account that appears to belong to Dayton mass shooter Connor Betts retweeted extreme left-wing and anti-police posts, as well as tweets supporting Antifa, or anti-fascist, protesters.

The most recent tweet on the @iamthespookster account was on August 3, the day of the shooting, when he retweeted a post saying, “Millenials have a message for the Joe Biden generation: hurry up and die.” He also retweeted messages supporting Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.

The user’s Twitter bio reads: “he/him / anime fan / metalhead / leftist / I’m going to hell and I’m not coming back.” One tweet used the hashtag #HailSatan.

Police are still trying to determine what motivated Betts to kill nine people early Sunday morning in a popular nightlife district in downtown Dayton. He was killed by police officers on patrol nearby 30 seconds after he opened fire.

In the hours before the Dayton shooting, the Twitter account “liked” several tweets about a shooting in El Paso, Texas, that left 22 dead, including one supporting gun control and others that called the El Paso shooting suspect a “terrorist,” and a “white supremacist.”

The account also retweeted posts against ICE agents, including one that said, “these people are monsters,” and multiple posts condemning police, and supporting Antifa protesters, who often use violent tactics. There were also many tweets of selfies, photos with a friend and ordinary memes and nonpolitical content.

However CNN’s biggest “stars” including Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon appear to have completely ignored this key fact.

Instead while questioning Joe Biden, Anderson Cooper appeared to attempt to lump both the El Paso shooting and the Ohio shooting into the same category of “white supremacist” far-right terror.
