Ugh, Not Obeidallah Again
Yesterday I said my peace about the El Paso Shooter from a Free Speech Perspective. I really don't want to rehash that article.
Then I sat back today and watched people blame:
Drag Queens - Huffington Post
Marijuana - Newsweek
Fake News - Rolling Stone
Guns - Uproxx
The Great Replacement - The Nation
Former President Barack Obama - Complex
And, of course, Donald Trump for what happened in El Paso and Dayton.
If you really believe that Donald Trump is responsible for Mass Shootings, that's your opinion. You'd be wrong, but a lot of people think like you. But as far as I can tell, only 1 National Writer has blamed Trump from 2 different perspectives on 2 different Corporate Media Platforms. And that, of course, is Mr. Dean Obeidallah.

You know what? On August 4, 2019 I choose not to re-publish the El Paso Shooter's Manifesto. I found it on the internet, cut and pasted it to my Drafts area, and then referenced it in relation to Free Speech in America. But I never published it. If you want to read it, you can find it somewhere else. But I thought it was important to read it, even if I didn't agree with it. Why? Because the El Paso Shooter TOLD you exactly why he did it.
We have repeatedly called out Dean Obeidallah for his slanted reporting, but today really chafed me. Part of the reason I was so upset writing my article yesterday is, the more I thought about it, the more I believe that the El Paso Shooter was NOT crazy. I think that he was evil. And I'm afraid that his evil is going to catch fire underground.
Dean Obeidallah, on the other hand, is crazy. He believes Donald Trump is Napoleon, Hitler, and Mussolini, all rolled up into one.
Donald Trump only cares about one thing. Donald Trump. Donald Trump is not some White Supremacist Svengali. There's no master race plan up Donald Trump's sleeve. He's as shallow as the puddle in my backyard. Trump's like Neo in the Matrix, all he sees are streaming $$$ signs everywhere he looks.
If I met Donald Trump today, the first thing he'd ask me is how much my website Beacon of Speech made. As soon as I said $0.00, I would disappear. Not that he would get rid of me, but that I wouldn't exist in his eyes.
When Donald Trump leaves office, maybe Dean and Donald can bury the hatchet. Obeidallah can show Donald Trump his bank account and Donald Trump's eyebrows would perk up "you made all that money from CNN and the Daily Stormer Settlement? Let's play a round of golf, on you."
