WaPo Take on Waukesha Attack Twists Reality Into a Pretzel – Opinion

I thought we were in bad media territory when people started referring to the Waukesha Christmas parade attack as an “accident,” as we reported yesterday.

“Accident” even trended briefly on Twitter because people were so shocked that the media was referring to it that way. It was an accident, Debra Messing, a perpetual liberal, decried it.

But we hadn’t reached the peak media hot take yet. This Washington Post take may be the one that has us there. However, I must warn you: Media always find a way down, and someone could try to steal this crown. Here’s the WaPo tweet:

Even worse was the fact that it was referred to as an accident by media. Now it’s a tragedy with random SUVs just going wild and massacring people, no human intervention needed. This just adds to the reason we need to get rid of them — those evil gas guzzlers — now they’re killing people, too. Media really want to minimize the motive behind this attack and any questions that surround it.

So let’s review for the sake of The Washington Post.

Not only have the police said that this was an intentional act, but the new complaint said the alleged attacker, Darrell Brooks — not the SUV — drove in a zig-zag pattern to hit as many people as possible.

“At this point, it was clear to Officer Butryn that this was an intentional act to strike and hurt as many people as possible. Officer Butryn continued to run westbound on East Main Street, trailing the vehicle and its path,” the complaint said. “He observed the vehicle appeared to be intentionally moving side to side, striking multiple people, and bodies and objects were flying from the area of the vehicle.” [….]

“One witness indicated, ‘As I continued to watch the SUV, it continued to drive in a zig-zag motion. It seemed like the SUV tried to avoid cars, but not people. There was no attempt made by the vehicle to stop, much less slow down,” the complaint said.

“Detective Trussoni spoke with another witness who described the same zig zag driving pattern by the SUV and the witness further indicated, he felt it was ‘a direct intent to hit as many parade participants,’” the complaint added.

The Washington Post: Talk about clown cars!

It’s like trying to blame a gun that is involved in shooting an innocent person. Guns don’t go wild and shoot themselves. Cars don’t randomly start themselves up, go out, and kill people except in horror movies.

They are blaming their car for that tweet. Because they don’t want to look too closely at the actual alleged attacker, Darrell Brooks, and his motivation. First, because looking at this case doesn’t serve any of the narratives that they generally like to push. It’s going to be hard to argue white supremacy here, for example. But further, if the WaPo did start taking a closer look, they might have to start asking some questions to which they don’t want the answers: Was this related to the Rittenhouse verdict and the suspect’s support for the BLM, given his social media postings? This was a direct attack on white people considering his earlier post about wanting white people to be exterminated. But these answers could be completely contrary to the narrative.
