Bernie supporter and murderer Jeremy Christian has been labeled by the media time and time again a “Trump supporter” and “white supremacist” to fit the left’s narrative. The Portland Mercury was the first to write an extensive piece claiming that he was “right wing extremist” and “white supremacist.” Via The Portland Mercury:
Christian is a known right wing extremist and white supremacist. On April 29, Christian showed up to the right-wing “March for Free Speech” on 82nd Avenue in Montavilla with a baseball bat in an attempt to assault left-wing protesters. The bat was quickly confiscated by Portland police officers.
Slate was quick to follow suit, writing the piece, “White Supremacist in Portland Kills Two Men Who Tried to Stop His Racist Rants.” Quickly, liberal Twitter took to calling Christian a Trump supporter and asking Trump himself to answer to the murderer:
What took so long? President Trump finally says something about the Portland white supremacist attack… https://t.co/Fo9LxePJPG
