The Associated Press published an article on January 4th claiming that the latest school shooter was a victim of bullying. The article was quickly picked up and shared across the world.
Yes, you read that right. They spun it to make the shooter the real victim.
Police are yet to provide a motive for the shooting. Two of his friends told The Associated Press that he was a quiet person who had been bullied for years.
“He was hurting. He got tired. He got tired of the bullying. He got tired of the harassment. Was it a smart idea to shoot up the school? No. God, no,” said 17-year-old Yesenia Roeder.
Her sister, Khamya Hall, also echoed the sentiment saying that Butler and his younger sister used to constantly get picked on and bullied.NDTV

Is there a pattern here?
It would appear that the modern LGBTQ+ movement is radicalizing our youth into becoming violent extremists. As usual the gun control zealots are using this shooting tragedy to support their push to snatch our firearms, instead of looking to the root of the problem which is the left’s enabling of mentally ill children and the failure of parents to supervise their children and weapons.
