The anti-gun leftist media naturally clamors after any gun-related tragedy to weave a story of right-wing conspiracy and Republican collusion.
The tragedy in Parkland is no exception as stories of Nikolas Cruz’s membership in a white supremacist militia were blasted all over the web within hours.
The problem is the story couldn’t be further from the truth. Leader of the Republic of Florida militia Jordan Jereb gushed falsely to the media that Cruz was a skilled shooter and was very involved with the group’s training operations.
And the media took it hook, line and sinker. But then law enforcement official quickly poured water on the story revealing that an investigation ‘did not yield any connections.’
Here’s more from PJ Media…
A self-aggrandizing leader of a white supremacist militia has put one over on the American media. Jordan Jereb apparently capitalized on the media frenzy over school shooter Nikolas Cruz and tried to gain some free publicity for his militia, the Republic of Florida.
Tallahassee police say they can find no connection between Cruz and the ROF.
Cruz may be a white supremacist. He may be a Trump supporter. But to take the word of a self-promoting yahoo playing at soldier and militia “leader” without making a minimal effort to confirm the facts is truly beyond belief.
The Tallahassee Democrat reported that Leon County law enforcement sources told them “they could not find information linking Cruz, 19, to the Republic of Florida Militia, as first reported by the group’s self-proclaimed leader Jordan Jereb.” The report went on to say that Leon County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Grady Jordan said investigative work Thursday did not yield any connections.”
