Have we finally reached a point in our modern society in which a terror attack on American soil is largely ignored by the mainstream media?
In a crime that should have shocked the nation, a young man in Florida has been arrested after he killed a fellow teenager in the name of radical Islam.
“A Florida teenager — who had previously been investigated for ‘alleged violent tendencies’ — watched jihadist videos and read the Koran ‘to give him courage’ before stabbing a 13-year-old boy to death and seriously injuring two others at a birthday sleepover Monday, cops said.
“Corey Johnson, 17, was charged with first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder after police said he confessed to the assault at the 13th birthday sleepover party at a BallenIsles Country Club home, the Palm Beach Post reported.
“Jupiter Police, Palm Beach County School District police and the FBI previously received ‘intelligence gathering’ on Johnson that prompted an investigation into his ‘alleged violent tendencies,’ the Palm Beach Post reported.”
The news comes as police in another Florida precinct are under fire for their own alleged ignorance of a potential threat in Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz, and for their cowardly reaction to his crimes.
Johnson’s grisly endeavor, whether or not it may have been prevented, is an appalling act that has been largely ignored by the liberal media. The reason being that Johnson used a knife in his slaying, rather than a firearm.
In the wake of the Parkland school massacre, the left had a clear and concise enemy to engage: The Second Amendment. Tugging at the heart strings is what the liberals do best, after all, and what better way to guilt the nation into legislation than by parading sad kids in front of the cameras.
For Corey Johnson, however, their silence is deafening.
The liberal media has long been obtuse when it comes to radical Islam, worrying about the possibility of perceived “Islamophobia” hurting their ratings.
