CNN Refutes Rumor That They Altered Photo of Umpqua Killer Chris Harper-Mercer

CNN was accused online of altering a photo of Umpqua killer Chris Harper-Mercer.
On Sunday CNN Media correspondent Brian Stelter refuted the report.

Chris was the son of Ian Mercer from Great Britain and Laurel Margaret Harper.

Chris lived with his mother Laurel.
He posted this selfie online.

But, according to Conservative Treehouse, CNN altered the image to make Harper-Mercer look white.

Via Conservative Treehouse: On the left is the selfie Christopher Mercer uploaded to his social media. On the right is how CNN presented the same selfie in broadcast stories about him. Why did CNN need to change the complexion (color) of their broadcast? Why is no-one showing pictures of mom, Laurel Margaret Harper?

His online profiles have been erased since the shooting.

    “Some months ago I stopped following “the news.” I know mainly what’s
    going on by following a few blogs but I cannot bear to look at the
    poisonous culture and vicious propaganda of the new regime. I used to
    check Drudge, the Daily Mail, the Post or Daily News… no more. I won’t
    even read the New Yorker for their cartoons, or the New York Times real
    estate section, which used to be a Sunday morning pleasure. I stopped
    watching TV years ago. We don’t have cable, I don’t watch modern movies.
    They turned us into zombies with their toxic mass media, the devils. If
    I am not already imprisoned in the cell next to yours I will be honored
    to visit you in jail. Or maybe I could organize a jailbreak — the
    storming of the Bastille, in reverse. I wonder if I’m too old and
    cowardly to strap on a sword and ride out for the Lord. All I really
    want to do is read beautiful books, hear beautiful music, see beautiful
    art, make beautiful things with my own two hands, and commune with
    beautiful souls. Is that too much to ask? Yes, it’s an ironic question.

    His complexion wasn’t all they changed. CNN also changed his nose for something more Caucasian, thinned his eyebrows and changed his lips, in particular the lower lip.

    I guess the meme is that all shooters have to be white conservative Republican NRA members. A black muslim just doesn’t fit the propaganda.

    that’s why the Marxists went after culture/media to take over America.
    while Patriots were awake on sentry duty looking for ‘invasions’, the Cultural Marxists went on a ‘Long March Through the Institutions’, including academia, bureaucracy, judiciary…

    the genius of Andrew Breitbart is he figured that out, he figured out that Patriots have been fighting the Wrong War! politics/elections follows culture, Never! the other way around.
    This Is Why! if Patriots don’t articulately, eloquently, passionately Defend and Explain Liberty, Constitutionalism, Conservatism, Patriotism, Americanism then forget about it, it’s all over.

    Icarus Falling

    “…was listening to Mark Levin’s program last night and he had John
    Lott on to discuss the lies Obama peddled in his gun control tirade
    Thursday night. But before they began to discuss that, Mark asked John
    about having been at the University of Chicago at the same time Obama
    was there.

    Today, Obama is described as having been a “Constitutional Law
    Professor” or “Constitutional Law Scholar.” It’s how he was presented
    to the American people back in 2008. But it is simply not true. Obama
    was hired on as a part-time lecturer at the University of Chicago as a
    favor to a political patron. It didn’t matter what Obama did while on
    staff, just put him on staff. He was not a professor of any kind. He
    did the bare minimum while there because what mattered was being able to
    put on his resume that he was at the University of Chicago Law School.
    Like a high school kid who volunteers at a soup kitchen over
    Thanksgiving to make his high school resume look more impressive to
    college admissions people, Obama wanted to make his resume for a
    potential political career look better. Just having “community
    organizer” wasn’t going to cut it if Obama hoped for a future in
    politics outside of Chicago’s south side.

    But, how many times were we reminded that Barack Obama was a
    “professor of Constitutional law?” How many times did someone refer to
    Obama as a “Constitutional law scholar?” It was part of the mythology….

    Yea I noticed that right off the bat even more than the lightened skin tone. Nose, lips, cheek bones and eye brows and hair color all changed to make him look white. Geeeez! CNN is just outright bold face lying now. Either that or they have some people working for them that are soooooooooo, soooooooooo stupid that they thought that no one in the none lame stream media would not notice what they did.
    Then again it was MSNBC and CNN that altered photos and 911 audio of that Zimmerman/Martin thing that happened down in Florida.

  • Tyrannocankles rex

    I would not doubt it, with all the disinformation being thrown about, including both 4chan and the feds.

    I want to see the actual CNN screen captures, to be sure. I’m pretty sure I saw a “too white” picture of this guy on CNN, because i remember laughing about their shameless anti-gun propaganda when his face came up on the screen. But we really need proof. Too much disinfo on this one.

    I have known a couple of individuals in the intelligence service, and I know them to be Patriots. They really believe that the work they do, and much of it is true, is very valuable to the nation and its security. They are willing to violet the Constitution. I have no problem with these Patriots believing they are doing the right thing, but we also know that any power given the Federal government is subject to abuse, i.e IRS. It is not worth the risk and the fact that Snowden revealed the direct violations of the Constitution by the Federal government makes him undoubtedly a hero to it.

CNN is dumb, but they are not that stupid. They will soon get wind of this hoax and rightfully defend themselves. They will look good, and the conservative online contingent will look bad and unprofessional, and we’ll all come off as conspiracy theorists who only see what we want to see. There is plenty shady about the Mercer story. This does not help us get to the truth. Several webmasters have really blown it, we all lose much credibility….

  • flappdoodle

    Whether this is a hoax or not, the MSM has called him a “conservative Republican” and while they have shown photos of his father, they have not shown photos of his mother. Is that a hoax? Do a search for his mother. See what you find.

    Jim, this story’s not accurate. No idea where Consevative Treehouse got that pic of the woman, but it doesn’t appear to be his mom. They pull together some good stuff, but occasionally hit duds, like the misreading of the Wayback (see @STKnutsen’s TL for more).

    And, although the media clearly doesn’t want to address the fact that the shooter is half-black and his mother is black, one outlet did interview her brother-in-law who said she was black, then the Daily Mail put up an interview with neighbor Reina who clearly stated his mom is a ‘very nice African American lady’, then late last night, the New York Daily News put up this hating 2A piece, with a picture of mom at the top. Not the same pic as Treehouse pulled. Here’s the article with the pic, posted here at least twice last night.

    Also, where did the lightened pic come from? Was it a screen grab of a broadcast, a CNN article, or as some are saying, photoshopped then uploaded to Twitter. The sourcing is important. See my post a minute ago. Clearly, MSM wanted him to be white, which he isn’t, and they haven’t been eager to point out his mother is black. In addition to the articles I listed a minute ago, the LA Times did note him as mixed race, and his mother as black, but then inexplicably said he had white supremacist leanings, with apparently nothing to back that up, as Breitbart pointed out. Finding the primary source should always matter. Oh, and *Conservative correction to post a minute ago.

Not only does he look like powder, they got rid of his warts and it looks like they even did some digital plastic surgery, his nose and even his nostrils look more narrow. Seriously?? WTH is wrong with these ppl!! He’s another Son of Barry and now I read that he was on a terror list that Russia tried to give B. Hussein a few weeks BEFORE this happened, but he refused because, “Err, the atmosphere isn’t right for such an exchange.” If he was on such a list and Obama refused, someone needs to go to prison for this. The terror list said that Mercer was an ISIS sympathizer and his MySpace Page proves it. But no, CNN, MSNBC and Obama wants Americans to think he was a Conservative Republican as if they would ever line up Christians, shoot them in their heads to meet their maker in second. Liberals truly do have a Mental Disorder!

    The mass murderer who hated Christians looks like a young Barry Soetoro. Of course, Barry’s mother was an unmarried white teenage slut and Chris Harper-Mercer parents were possibly married. However, there unmistakable comparison between Barry and Chris Harper-Mercer is (was) a desire to kill Christians in both of them. Barry’s help to the Islamic State has resulted in the death, torture and sex slavery of Christian far beyond the dreams of Chris Harper-Mercer.

    To the commenter who said only one person said the shooter targeted Christians, that’s once again 100% false media spin. At least four witnesses have said he targeted Christians.

Do some research. You might be surprised what you find.

    It’s important, if it’s true. It’d be nice to have a definitive answer to my question earlier as to where Conservative Treehouse got this. If it’s a screengrab, who took it, what day/time, can the source video be found? Wouldn’t surprise me if it’s true, as we know MSM spins and selects certain photos to further their narrative, but I need more data to accept it happened in this case. Maybe people can find the vid? I know the pic TC had up of the mom is wrong, so I question this pic too.

    Failed Common Core Supporting NY Education Commissioner Is The New Secretary Of Education…

    John King Jr

    John King Jr. was a miserable failure as Commissioner of Education in
    New York. He waylaid his failure in New York into the assistant’s job
    in the US Department of Education. He will be the new Secretary of

    King came to New York as an extremely well-educated egghead with
    little educational experience and none in public schools. He implemented
    Common Core in a bizarre manner and blamed the horrendous results on
    New York’s “ignorant” children. Even though New York’s standards were
    the highest in the nation, he claimed the students were not used to high

    He tied teacher evaluations to the standardized testing, exams which
    weren’t even properly evaluating children. Teacher evaluations were in
    some cases based on other teachers’ student scores. Tech, art, music
    teachers are still being evaluated by language arts or math student scores because there aren’t any exams for them.

    Trump wants states to educate in the manner they wish, Hillary and Bush love common core.

    A Fact Unknown to Obama’s Refugee Chief: Boston Bombers Were Refugees

    Barbara Strack is President Obama’s chief of the Refugee Affairs
    Division at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service of the
    Department of Homeland Security. That’s a fancy title that would at
    least indicate some cursory knowledge about refugees. But that couldn’t
    have been further from the truth, as evidenced in Thursday’s Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest investigating Obama’s plan to open our borders to hundreds of thousands of refugees over the next two years.

    One of the top concerns about any refugee coming into the United
    States is whether or not they have ties to terrorism or are radical
    Islamists. Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, also the Congressional
    subcommittee’s chairman, knows the importance of knowing and monitoring
    these connections with these asylum seekers. He asked Mrs. Strack if she
    could confirm that Dzhokhar and Tamerian Tsarnaev, the Boston Marathon
    bombers, were in fact refugees. Her response was a bit on the shocking

    Obama is purposefully hiding all facts about ISIS, Terrorists and Muslim attacks and this is so evidently clear that our mushy Congress cannot do a thing because they have NO SPINS.

    Fact: Trump would do something!!

  • dave0987

    If we hadn’t already seen this type of thing done before so many times (and verified it to be true beyond all doubt) then I’d be inclined to not believe it.

    It’s not like CNN (and the rest of the left wing media) needs any further discrediting at this point, so if this one turns out to not be true for a change, I’d suspect it was made up by a leftist to discredit right leaning sites.

  • TruthMatters

    Given your flaming liberalness, and ahem, liberal use of the Lord’s name in vain, it’s clear you’re not a Christian and thus uninformed on what it means to be one. As a Christian with a personal relationship with Jesus and an awareness of what God’s Word says, I can assure you, Obama is not a Christian, by his own words and deeds in direct opposition to God. If he were for example, he’d know Islam is an evil false religion and no man comes to the Father but through repentance of sins and accepting Jesus as God’s son, and his/her Lord and Savior.

  • dave0987

    True, but these things (verifiable and proven true) have been on far more that just NBC.

  • Lauralee

    1. I was raised as a Christian.

    2. I like the religion, even if I don’t personally believe it myself.

    3. From the very article I linked to (or any Google search, should you choose to actually look): “Obama was baptized into the United Church of Christ (UCC) denomination and formally joined it in 1988.[6] He left the UCC in 2008 because of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright controversy.[7] He now worships with a Southern Baptist pastor at Camp David but has not become a formal member of any church since 2008.[8]”

    4. In Obama’s own words, since you said he said so himself: “I’m a Christian by choice. My family didn’t—frankly, they weren’t folks who went to church every week. And my mother was one of the most spiritual people I knew, but she didn’t raise me in the church. So I came to my Christian faith later in life, and it was because the precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to me in terms of the kind of life that I would want to lead—being my brothers’ and sisters’ keeper, treating others as they would treat me.”

    5. To quote Colin Powell, who is both a Conservative and a Christian – even if he was Muslim, why does it matter? John McCain said the same thing – and he is also Conservative and a Christian.

    6. You are embarrassing me.

  • dave0987

  • TruthMatters

    Re: Obama, read Dave’s links. Many of us have followed him for years and know without a doubt he is not what he claims.

    You’ve openly stated you do not believe in God due to a past trauma. Here’s the thing, all have sinned and fallen short. Your rapists, my two rapists, me and you. Those sins are not God’s fault – they’re our choices. The wages of everyone’s sin is death, but God loves us enough for His Son to pay our debt, if we acknowledge our sins (pride, bitterness, dishonesty?), repent, meaning not only wish we hadn’t committed them but also turn away from them, and accept Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior. Your grandma’s right. He has a plan for you. He can heal your wounds – the alcohol prolongs them. Looks like you may’ve gone through a divorce recently. I think He’s calling you to be renewed now. If someday you open your heart to Him, you’ll be transformed by the renewing of your mind and His Holy Spirit will fill and guide you. “Seek Me & you will find Me”. I’m sorry for your hurt. God will be with you every minute of every day if you let Him in. Nothing is impossible with God.

  • dave0987

    We aren’t talking about me troll, nice deflection…but since you ask, we are permitted to expect “fruits” of being a Christian. Obama not only doesn’t show them, he shows hostilities towards Christians.

    Now since this is where you likely try the often misunderstood “shouldn’t judge!” I’ll help you with that too:

    Question: What does the Bible mean that we are not to judge others?

    Your welcome.

  • TruthMatters

    Laura, if you grew up exposed to faith in Christ, you must know that narrow is the gate and that Jesus said many will say Lord, Lord and He will say depart from Me; I knew you not, meaning many use the term Christian and label themselves and others as such, while discounting what the namesake, Christ/Jesus Himself said about faith in Him. They don’t make him Lord, they don’t follow Him, they don’t bear fruit, they just use a label. Obama has openly mocked God and twisted and ignored His Word and commandments. And knowing that doesn’t make Dave, me or anyone else a bad Christian. Why does it matter? Because Obama persecutes and slanders Christians while deceiving others and claiming to be one as cover.

    I’m taking a required interpersonal communications class. We’ve spent 2 entire weeks so far discussing racism by whites and white privilege. The hyphenated African-American woman teaching this class made us write two papers discussing how we personally used white privilege to hold back minorities. Everybody is in fear of writing anything that this professor may object to. It is complete brain-washing and the people in my class are so eager to go along with it. One young blond white girl even stated that one of her ‘goals’ was to marry a black man and have interracial kids to prove she wasn’t a racist. Basically, if you’re white then you

    As far as I can tell, it looks like Sundance at Conservative Treehouse may have gotten this from a poster of his 0Hour1, who also is on Twitter. Seems some treepers asked where it came from, but didn’t get an answer. Not sure if it originated at CT, by 0Hour, or from others.

    From the Conservative Treehouse reporting the “shooter” has a history in plays and production – just like Andy Parker from the Virginia “shooting” – now lots of confusion about his real identity and crossover from “Black Lives Matter” Cointelpro.

    Also the military “hero” on the scene supposedly was shot in the abdomen, in photographs they show some sort of wound on his stomach with zero blood coming from these “bullet wounds” and the EMT’s didn’t bother to dress the wounds before they rolled him off to the hospital? Also the “shooter” supposedly shot non-Christian students in the leg, where are these “victims” now – how come no interviews or reports on their recovery? Smells like another PSYOP – also known as PSYCHOLOGICAL TERRORISM to further a gun grab…

  • Winning Dixie

    There’s an amazing lack of curiosity about the so-called “lucky one” the shooter spared. All the MSM outlets call him “the person” or “the student.” Didn’t all of you want to know more about this “lucky one” and how he got to be so lucky? Doesn’t it seem odd that no one in the media thinks “the lucky one” worthy of a follow up?

    What would explain the unanimous silence? Some MSM apologists might say it’s to protect “the lucky one’s” privacy. Since when has the MSM let concerns stop them from airing a juicy click-bait story? I don’t believe that for a second. Maybe there’s something about “the lucky one” that would interfere with the MSM’s desired spin? That’s a lot more believable.

    If “the lucky one” just happened to be the only African-American student in that classroom, you can bet the MSM wouldn’t be real eager to mention it. That’s just a hypothesis. Falsify it.

    Why would they “hold on” to proof it really happened? There’s some skepticism (not nearly enough, but some) about the claim that the Photoshopped pic was ever on CNN. If Conservative Treehouse had proof it really happened, you’d think they’d put it right out there.

  • Winning Dixie

    I looked for this picture on CNN and couldn’t find it. Many people in comment threads on Conservative Treehouse say the same. The search engine hits only find the original twitter account that posted it (and said CNN did it) and other sites that picked up the tweet and ran with it.

    It doesn’t make ANYBODY look good, but Treehouse took the worse hit. Treehouse looks bad now for running with a hoax. CNN (and the rest of the MSM) looked bad already, what with the digitally lightened “angelic little Trayvon” pics and such.

    See update from Jim. CNN says they haven’t shown his image.

    For commenters below, as far as I can tell, looks like 0Hour1 shared the pic labelled as CNN at 7:11 pm 10/2. A different conservative tweeter had the same pic up as early as 9:03 am 10/2, but she did not attribute it to CNN just media. Now that a lot of people are asking about it, she said she got the lightened pic from an unknown leftie Twitter troll. Seems like a game of telephone at this point.

    Well, at least CNN didn’t go the route taken by the NYT in covering the George Zimmerman incident – i. e., by making up an entirely new racial category called “White-Hispanic”. They may have tried, but “White-black”, “Brit-black” or “White-African-American” just didn’t tickle the ear the right way.

  • Winning Dixie

    Another interesting aspect of the MSM coverage on this atrocity is “the lucky one.” A designated Lucky One isn’t exactly S.O.P. in mass shootings. You’d think the MSM would be all over that aspect of the story.

    But you’d be wrong. I googled all over the place for a follow up on this anonymous “lucky one.” Nada. They call him (the Daily Mail consented to tell us he’s male) “the person” or “the student” in every story I could find. Why the unanimous silence about such a strange twist?

    Hypothesis (so called because it’s easy to falsify): “The Lucky One” was the only black student in that classroom. That would explain why the MSM doesn’t want to talk about him. It would mess up the “typical white right-wing gun-nut mass-murder” spin they tried to put on it.

    The MSM knows that our collective attention span only lasts until the next Loud’n’Shiny distracts us from the last one. (Remember Putin punking Obama over Syria? Me neither. Somebody shot somebody somewhere and I forgot all about it.)

    Part of our task is to make that stop working. Keep on the MSM to report all the facts, and call them out when they refuse to.

    Oh, I am NOT agreeing or believing he is holding it; just saying from past mistakes it is out of character for SD (whoever he really is) so I look for a “gotcha” and if had to bet one way or another, I would bet he was holding something. I would think, if proof, would put out there, too. Not a treehouse groupie. We will see if there will be a big reveal or not.

    I think Disqusdmnj is saying “The Obamasgruppen hasn’t kicked your door down and taken your guns away so that proves you’re all a bunch of tinfoil-hat paranoid crazies fingering your gunbarrels as you peer out the venetian blinds looking for Them.”

    Update: earliest lightened pic I found so far was from a third conservative tweeter at 7:50 pm 10/1, listing it as “undoctored photo of the shooter from MSNBC” which may have been tongue in cheek. So, all I’ve found is the pic labelled as from MSNBC, then just media by 2nd person, then CNN by 3rd person. Could very well be others in the interim. 7:50 post could’ve gotten it from MSNBC, made it as a metaphor for the deliberate whitewashing occurring in coverage, or gotten it from somewhere/someone else. Bottom line, no obvious link to CNN I’ve found thus far. Given the CNN update, I’m done looking for now.

    The mother is a negro. The killer lived with his mother for a decade or so and lived with her in the town in which he killed ten white individuals. The mother had an intense interest in guns. The mother knew her son had mental issues. The killer had attended a school for people with mental problems in California. The mother had a very large assortment of firearms available to her son.

    The killer had intense hatred for white people. The mother likely hated white people as well. The mother enabled this mentally ill son to kill a large number of innocent people.

    The mother needs to be put in prison. For the rest of her life. She used this mentally unstable negro young man to lash out and kill innocent white people.

    Yes, sorry if I implied you didn’t get it. That wasn’t my meaning.

    I don’t know Sundance; I can’t predict what he’d do. In the face of a rising tide of skepticism about whether or not CNN really did run a doctored photo, I can’t think of a reason for him to hold back info that would substantiate it. If he has any.

    Neither can I think of a good reason for him not to ‘fess up if he ran a story that turned out to be bogus. Can’t blame him for not wanting to admit it if he did get suckered in, but the longer he waits, the worse it looks.

    I know what you’re saying about pet hypotheses, but I’m honestly glad it’s wrong*. There’s too much hate and racial favoritism in the world. A bit less is fine with me. How can I oppose Obama’s ginning up of hatred “for a cause”, if I favor more hatred under ANY circumstance – even just wanting a theory to work out?

    It’s OK. I’ve come to understand why good cops feel good when they realize they were wrong about a suspect!

    (*Assuming we are not being misled. I do not trust that Obama’s corrupted DOJ is not manipulating facts.)

  • Winning Dixie

    I wanted my hypothesis to be true only because it would have been such a monstrous embarrassment for the MSM when it was revealed how far they had gone to bury a racial motive. But, yeah, I’m not disappointed that it turned out not to be.

  • Jonathan Miller

    The Shooter was described as shooting those “Non”-Christians in the legs… Where are the wounded?

    The Real McCoy is usually some boring paragraph of Lawyerspeak on page 218 of an 832-page bill. We never hear about it, and I (for one) wouldn’t grasp its significance if we did. Stuff like this shooting, OTOH, is lurid and gory and eminently relateable click-bait, but its only real significance is that it distracts us from The McCoy and gives Obama something to exploit for political ends.

    It was the FSB, formerly known as the KGB. They warned of the Tsarnaev Brothers, and this alleged shooter as well, but Obozo didn’t listen… I think it is all planned and set-up by the Leftists… Being crazy, they know all the crazy, loser weirdos and know what will set them off…

    People Mag has done a couple articles on the manifesto. Here’s the latest:

    He says, ‘Many will ask how can they have prevented this? You can’t. You could never give me what I wanted. Nothing could have stopped it,’ ” the source tells PEOPLE. “He talks about other mass killers, and says, ‘These people were denied everything they deserved and wanted.’ ”

    Mercer then purportedly expresses skepticism that anything could have turned his life around: “He asks, ‘What was supposed to happen? What great event was supposed to make me realize I had so much going for me?’ ” the source says.

    “I’ve been forced to align myself with these demons and become one of them. At first, it was involuntary, but now I am aligned with them. I now serve. When I die I will become one of them. My success in Hell is assured.”

  • Kat

    Let’s see, as you so put the military “hero” on the scene supposedly was shot in the abdomen, in photographs they show some sort of room in his stomach, where do you think the abdomen is? ab·do·men
    the part of the body of a vertebrate containing the digestive organs; the belly. In humans and other mammals, it is bounded by the diaphragm and the pelvis.
    Hmmmm, the BELLY, isn’t that also referenced as the ‘stomach’? As far as blood, not all bullet wounds end up pouring out blood, stop watching so many tv shows.

    Why Gunshot wounds may not bleed profusely.Remember gunshot wounds are serious. Just because they may not bleed profusely it doesn’t mean you are out of the woods yet.
    – Entry and exit wounds are often small.
    – Bullets rarely transect or sever major arteries and blood vessels
    – Surrounding tissue acts as a barrier to blood loss
    – As blood pressure falls, bleeding slows.

    But yes I do agree with your statement of PSYOP, how convenient this happens as Putin is embarrassing the hell out of the so called ‘leader’ we have. It’s nothing but distractions/issues from this government as usual to further their agenda and move us closer to martial law and the UN taking control.

    That is not true. He simply asked people to state their religion, and then opened fire on everyone, according to the one and only actual eyewitness account that mentioned race at all. The grandmother of one of the victims (said grandmother wasn’t there, so she is not an eyewitness) subsequently claimed that he shot only Christians in the head and wounded non-Christians.

  • You sound like an ape. Go crawl back under your rock, chimp.

  • Shut up, stupid. Lol. You sound dumb.

  • Yeah, well…we have plenty of credit after all the Black people murdered by enraged whie savages since Slavery and by your police departments until this very day.

    Deal with it. Boo hoo.

    Here is the father of one of the girls that lived. Her eyewitness testimony was VERY CLEAR.

    Nice attempt to spread your lies

    (If this was actually true, then why would someone feel the need to pull this stunt in this video instead of finding an actual screenshot?) LOL

    Thanks for that. I had not seen that one, but that, too, is not an eyewitness account. Do you not understand what the term “eyewitness” means? He was not there. His daughter was, but he was not. As he himself said, this is his understanding of what she had allegedly told him, but we do not have words from her personally saying any such thing.

    In the interview that she herself had given in the media, she never once mentioned the word “Christian” in any form nor any synonym nor denomination thereof. She merely said that he asked if people were “religious.”

    Other accounts of others who were there contradict the assertion that he targeted Christians (he was asking people’s religions to assure them that they would meet God soon, and that he would be seeing them soon himself, but he apparently killed them regardless of the answer they gave), and more to the point, the simple fact is that of the nine victims who died, only two can be shown for a fact from their social media presence and other evidence to have been actual practicing Christians. And at least a couple of them were very definitely not Christian (though one of those was the assistant professor who was raised Jewish but later seemed to have become a secularist who had the famous New Age guru Deepak Chopra among his social media likes — not something most Christians would do — but since Harper-Mercer shot him first apparently without asking his religion, I won’t count him).

    The remaining eight fatalities, in alphabetical order by surname:

    • Lucero Alcaraz, 19 — religious beliefs, if any, unknown at this time

    • Treven Anspach, 20 — no mention of religious beliefs, but he liked hip-hop music and “adult jokes.”

    • Rebecka Carnes, 18 — ditto. She did “like” Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson, but a lot of people do who aren’t religious at all, let alone Christian.

    • Quinn Cooper, 18 — at least agnostic, if not outright atheist. He was a fan of secularist or even pagan science fiction and fantasy series, had Friended George Takei (openly gay and same-sex-married actor) and Liked three different fan pages for an atheist scientist character on the sitcom The Big Bang Theory, plus several sites and series dedicated to debunking Christianity and other beliefs considered by atheists to be superstitions. He showed no interest in religion at all.

    • Kim Saltmarsh Dietz, 59 — Pagan.

    • Lucas Eibel, 18 — no known mention of religious beliefs, but he did have as his Facebook header image the band Evanescence, which claims not to be a Christian rock band but does have Christian themes in some of their songs.

    • Jason Johnson, 33 — Participated in a Salvation Army drug rehab program, and his family says he was Christian, but there is nothing in his own writings or postings to indicate such. I’ll grant this one, though.

    • Sarena Moore, 44 — Seventh-Day Adventist. While many Dispensationalists (aka “Born-Againers” or “Personal Relationship with Jesus Christ” or “just plain generic evangelical protestant” Christians) and Southern Baptists and the like consider them a cult (as they do Mormons and in many cases even Roman Catholics), those do consider themselves Christians, so I can see her answering “yes” to such a question even if it were apparent that doing so would cost her her life, so I’ll count her among the Christians for this purpose.

    So, among those who even might have been Christian enough to have answered “Yes” to Harper-Mercer’s alleged question, are: Alcaraz, Anspach, Carnes, Eibel, and Johnson. Moore is the only one we can be reasonably certain would have answered “Yes” to that question, even though many of the more extremist right-wing Christians would deny her Christianity for being in a “cult.” That’s six out of eight of the ones other than the apparently lapsed Jewish professor who may not have been asked his religion prior to being killed, at least according to some accounts.

    So how do you explain Cooper the pagan and Deitz the at-least-agnostic (if not outright atheist), both being killed (not merely wounded), if Harper-Mercer were specifically targeting only Christians as you claim? Of the five possibles other than Moore, would people who gave no hint of being Christian, even if they were in their private lives, have had the courage to admit to it if it were apparent that doing so would mean a painful and immediate death?

    He apparently did not specifically target Christians, since one of his victims was a pagan and another was at least an agnostic if outright atheist, and of the remaining six (not counting the raised-Jewish-turned-secularist [and perhaps New Ager] asst. prof. who was shot first and apparently not asked his religion first), only one is definitely someone who would’ve answered “Yes” to the question about being a Christian, and even she, being a Seventh-Day Adventist, is someone whom most Born-Againers (aka Dispensationalists) and Southern Baptists and Assemblies of God and such would consider a non-Christian cultist.

  • Meanwhile we keep being diverting from the media black out that ISIS claimed Mercer on Twitter and lining up victims to ask religion is their typical MO. Mercer was on a terrorist list Obama refused to accept, he tried to go to Syria in Sept. and MORE>.

    CNN is lying! Just like when Anderson Pooper was interviewing the mom of a “dead” Sandy Hook student allegedly at the child’s funeral,casket on full dîspay behind them.What happens next? Oops! Pooper moved his head in such a way it caused half of his nose to vanish! That’s right no real funeral but a green screen instead.
    And everybody has seen their fake Iraq war footage.No? Just type in faked war coverage by CNN over on youtube.Pathetic.
