The Mortimer Zuckerman-owned New York Daily News blamed “white hate groups” for the San Bernardino shooting—before it was revealed that nonwhite Muslims—whose immigration into the US that newspaper supports—were actually responsible.
In so doing, that paper has provided a perfect example of the institutional anti-white bias of the controlled media.
In support of its claim that “white hate groups” were behind the shootings, the Daily News quoted two other notorious Jewish hate groups, the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League, as part of its claim that “white supremacists” were to blame for the shooting.
The Daily News article, titled “San Bernardino struggled with hate groups, homicides and gangs before mass shooting,” complete with pictures of swastikas and skinheads, said that “skinheads and neo-Nazis have shown pronounced influence in the area east of Los Angeles known as the Inland Empire.”
It went on to quote the ADL and the SPLC as follows:
The Anti-Defamation League has cited examples in both San Bernardino County and neighboring Riverside County of the Comrades of Our Race’s Struggle, the Inland Empire Skinheads, the Nazi Low Riders and a splinter group called Public Enemy Number One.
Police in San Bernardino said in 2009 that they had probed murders, home invasions and drug trafficking linked to members of the Inland Empire Skinheads over a seven-year period, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
“You have seen a great deal of migration to the Inland Empire and a huge demographic change,” Mark Potok, the director of SPLC’s Intelligence Project, told the newspaper at the time. “And with that change we have seen a lot of conflict.”
The article then went on to blame whites, by association, for the high level of homicides in the area by simply adding statistics after the SPLC quote:
The area also suffered from a rise in homicides, which shot up just as San Bernardino was reeling from declaring bankruptcy in 2012, leading to a reduction in its police force. The homicide rate grew by 50% in 2012 as the number of police officers shrunk to 264 from its 2009 total of 350 officers, the New York Times reported.
Even Hispanic gang warfare, which is responsible for the upsurge in homicides and violence in California, was blamed on whites in the article by merging the “gang warfare” into the “white hate group” article this way:
Homicides ticked higher in 2014 as the San Bernardino police force’s budget reduced it to 232 officers, according to the L.A. Times. Police told the newspaper that gang members from L.A. moved into the area.
It must have come as a great disappointment to the Daily News, the ADL, and the SPLC when it emerged that the shooters in San Bernardino were identified as Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, and Tashfeen Malik, 27,—both described as “devout Muslims.”
This approach of routinely blaming whites for any sort of incident is the norm for the controlled media—with the best example being the Trayvon Martin shooting, which sparked nationwide unrest. Then, the media claimed that the shooter was a “white male” even though he was a Hispanic with black ancestry.
