WATCH: What This SC Dem Said About Fox News And Church Massacre Sets O’Reilly On Fire

Leave a comment

This is from Western Journalism.

This is typical of the DemocRat Party blame everyone but the criminal for their action.

 

Not only did President Obama waste no time in calling for more gun control in the wake of the Charleston church massacre, but a South Carolina lawmaker was quick to condemn Fox News for spreading the kind of “hate speech” and “coded language” that inspired suspected mass murderer Dylann Roof.

The man who went on national TV and linked Fox News with the horrific killing of nine people at the Emanuel AME Church is no obscure politician. He’s the Minority Leader of the South Carolina State House, Democrat Rep. Todd Rutherford. A longtime friend of State Sen. Clementa Pinckney — the paster of the church who died along with eight others when a gunman opened fire during a Bible study class — Rep. Rutherford had told CNN that the suspected shooter was motivated to slaughter innocent black people “because he watches things like Fox News.”

As The Blaze noted, Rutherford appeared on the Fox News show The O’Reilly Factor after having made his accusatory comments on CNN earlier on Thursday. And while his conversation with host Bill O’Reilly began calmly enough, it soon went south when the host asked the lawmaker about his associating the alleged mass killer with what is broadcast on Fox News.

Rutherford and O’Reilly then began to spar, speaking over each other.

“Mr. Rutherford, let me get a question out!” O’Reilly said. “Are you going to stand there tonight and say there that Fox News justifies brutal crimes against black Americans?”

Rutherford then denied that he had suggested that and accused O’Reilly of “inflaming the rhetoric.”

By clicking on the video above, you can watch the fiery exchange between Bill O’Reilly and the South Carolina legislator who blames Fox News for broadcasting what he claims are the kind of inflammatory stories and opinions that lead to horrific hate crimes like the Charleston church massacre.

Suspected race-hate killer, 21, is a meth and cocaine-using pill popper who got a gun for his birthday, proudly wears apartheid flags and has a Confederate license plate

This is from The U.K. Daily Mail.

I hope the father of this punk gets locked up for giving his son a gun, knowing he has a criminal record.

 

  • Roof, of Columbia, South Carolina, had recently been given a gun by his father as a birthday present, his uncle has revealed
  • Roof’s Facebook photo shows him wearing a leather jacket that has flags of apartheid South Africa and white-rule Rhodesia sewn on
  • A massive manhunt was underway for Roof after a Wednesday night shooting left nine parishioners at the historic black church dead
  • Roof was arrested before noon on Thursday by authorities in Shelby, North Carolina, over 200 miles from the carnage he allegedly left behind
  • In February, he was arrested on felony possession of methamphetamine, cocaine and LSD

 

Dylann Roof, the man police say went on a shooting rampage in an historically black South Carolina church murdering nine people Wednesday, has been pictured wearing a jacket bearing flags from apartheid-era South Africa and what was once white-rule Rhodesia.

The 21-year-old Columbia-area man–who friends describe as a frequent abuser of prescription drugs–was arrested twice this year, Lexington County court records reveal, on charges of trespassing and drug possession.

Roof, who became the focus of a massive manhunt after he fled the church in downtown Charleston, was given a gun by his father as a 21st birthday present in April, his uncle told Reuters on Thursday.

Law enforcement officers were at the home of Dylann Roof’s mother on Thursday morning, the uncle, Carson Cowles, said in an interview.

Cowles said he recognized Roof in a photo released by police, and described him as quiet and soft-spoken. Roof’s father gave him a .45-caliber pistol for his birthday this year, Cowles said.

Authorities caught up with Roof in Shelby, North Carolina, over 200 miles from the carnage he allegedly left behind, before noon on Thursday.

‘Nobody in my family had seen anything like this coming,’ Cowles said. ‘I said, if it is him, and when they catch him, he’s got to pay for this.’

He said he had told his sister, Roof’s mother, several years ago that Roof was too introverted.

‘I said he was like 19 years old, he still didn’t have a job, a driver’s license or anything like that and he just stayed in his room a lot of the time,’ Cowles said.

A woman who answered the cellphone of the suspect’s mother Amelia Roof, also known as Amy, declined to comment.

‘We will be doing no interviews ever,’ she said, before hanging up.

Roof, who attended White Knoll High School in Lexington, South Carolina, had in recent days befriended at least one black former classmate on the social media site, where his profile photo shows him scowling as he wears the jacket with racist emblems.

Many of Roof’s older Facebook friends are black, as well.

A high school classmate of Roof’s, John Mullins, told The Daily Beast that the accused white supremacist killer was ‘kind of wild’ and a big time prescription drug abuser.

‘He used drugs heavily a lot,’ Mullins said. ‘It obviously harder than marijuana. He was like a pill popper, from what I understood. Like Xanax, and stuff like that.’

Court records reveal that a February drug charge cited Roof’s possession of methamphetamine, cocaine and LSD, RadarOnline reports.

Mullins said White Knoll High had ‘a lot of preps, a little bit of gang members, and a lot of outcasts’ but that Roof—despite his uncle’s assertion his nephew was ‘too introverted’—was not one of those outcasts.

‘I never heard him say anything, but just he had that kind of Southern pride, I guess some would say. Strong conservative beliefs,’ he said. ‘He made a lot of racist jokes, but you don’t really take them seriously like that. You don’t really think of it like that.’

Another woman claiming via Twitter to be former a classmate of Roof’s wrote Thursday:

‘Dylann use to be a super emo, with long blonde hair and he was pretty quiet,’ Kimberly Taylor tweeted. ‘I always said he look like the cry type to blow some ish up’

A witness to Wednesday’s massacre said Roof said before the shooting: ‘I have to do it…You rape our women and you’re taking over the country.’

On Wednesday, he allegedly entered the church and joined the group before suddenly opening fire an hour later. One survivor recounted how he reloaded his gun five times as he picked off his victims – killing three females and six males, including the Reverend Clementa Pinckney, who is also a South Carolina state senator.

Pinckney’s cousin told NBC News that one of the survivors told her they had urged Roof to stop.

Roof spared one woman so she could ‘tell the world what happened’, eye witnesses recounted, while a five-year-old girl also survived the attack after her grandmother told her to play dead.

Police released photographs from surveillance video Thursday morning of the suspect and a dark colored sedan that may have been the getaway vehicle.

‘This is a very dangerous individual,’ Police Chief Greg Mullen said. ‘We want to identify this individual and arrest him before he hurts anyone else.’
