(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) A rad-leftist media and its mainstream corporate sponsors shamelessly seized on a tragic mass shooting Saturday in Buffalo, taking the words of a delusional crack pot who embraced white supremacy and twisting them to blame former President Donald Trump and conservative media, particularly Fox News’ Tucker Carlson.
Decked out in military gear that included a helmet with a camera livestreaming the horror, 18-year-old Payton Gendron, who is white, of Conklin, N.Y., opened fire with a rifle at a supermarket in Buffalo, killing 11 black victims and two who were white, surrendering to authorities who described the mass shooting as “racially motived violent extremism.”
The gunman shot people outside the store and continued firing as he walked through the building before store security, a retired police officer, shot the suspect, reported BNO News. The bullet had no effect because the suspect, who was taken into custody and arraigned on a murder charge, was wearing armored plating.
“It’s like walking onto a horror movie, but everything is real,” a police official said.
“It is armageddon-like. It’s so overwhelming,”
The deranged shooter described himself as a white supremacist and anti-semite in a 106-page online manifesto that explained he was motivated by a conspiracy theory that white people are being replaced by other races.
That was all a complaint leftist media needed to disingenuously conflate the white-power rantings of an unhinged killer with Trump and Carlson, despite the shooter’s professed hatred of Fox News and conservatives.
It was a fake news narrative that has been peddled in the past and repeated with the latest mass shooting.

“The Buffalo killer’s manifesto reads like a job application for a junior producer on Tucker Carlson,” squawked Lincoln Project flake Rick Wilson.
“And no, I’m not being flippant.”
Neither, apparently, was never-Trumper S.E. Cupp.
The toxic garbage being pushed by MAGA, Q, Fox, and even many GOP members of Congress has REAL consequences. But these are the same people who’ll insist right-wing extremism ISN’T a threat to our natl security — it isn’t even REAL, they say. It was very real in Buffalo today.

The message being cultivated to tie Trump, MAGA and conservatives to the Buffalo mass shooting falls into line with an agenda to assign blame to those same groups for any violence that erupts over abortion activists’ mostly peaceful protest that has already triggered two fire-bombings, enflamed a riot and intimated justices of the Supreme Court.
“More blood on the hands of @tuckercarlson and @foxnews this killer used their racist talking points to justify killing 10 people,” accused longtime Clinton enabler Joe Lockhart.
Except for the minor inconsistency that the lunatic shooter had a keen loathing for Fox News and conservatives. The self-identifying white supremacist also informed that “On the political compass I fall in the mild-moderate authoritarian left category, and I would prefer to be called a populist.”
The killer attacks Fox News in his manifesto. CNN is paying a guy to lie and politicize the deaths of 10 people while their bodies are still warm. https://t.co/hUXVZXRILx

“The guy expressed his hatred of Fox News in his manifesto,” wrote TownHall’s Derek Hunter. “Maybe he watches CNN? If that’s so, that means the blood is on your hands, right Joey?
So not only does the twit hate conservatives and conservative media, he’s a self-proclaimed authoritarian leftist.
The shooter specifically attacked Fox and conservatives in his manifesto.
But if news outlets & political parties are responsible for mass killings can we blame your crowd for Waukesha & the NYC subway shootings? https://t.co/DMT7U3lI8j

The mainstream media’s shameless suppression and disinformation over the Waukesha tragedy, where a black supremacist who supported Black Lives Matter allegedly killed six people when he drove his SUV into a parade, was widely noted.
They were silent on the Waukesha Christmas parade attacker because he was a radical leftist and now they’re trying to falsely assign a right wing political motive to the Buffalo shooter.
Rest In Peace to all the victims and prayers to their families. They don’t deserve this. https://t.co/w7PeIDp7gU

“There was a guy shooting people in DC with a sniper setup, while livesteaming,” noted Human Event’s Jack Posobiec.
“This took place last month in our nation’s capital. It has been completely memory-holed. NYC subway and Waukesha parade too.”
