Jeremy Christian, the man who killed two people in Portland this week has been portrayed as a “White Supremacist” and a “Trump supporter” by the MSM, but according to posts made on his Facebook page, this is all just media spin to try and damage President Trump.
The reality turns out to be that Christian was a major Bernie Sanders supporter who wanted him to run on a ticket with the Green Party’s Jill Stein. He was angered that Hillary Clinton had “stitched up” Sanders but couldn’t even bring himself to vote for Trump in retaliation against the DNC.
That the man is a maniac is undeniable, but the media spin to try and associate his actions with a whole swathe of people who voted for Donald Trump is not only dishonest, it is despicable and divisive.
As reported in the Daily Caller:
According to screen captures of his Facebook page obtained by Buzzfeed, Christian was not a Trump supporter, as many media outlets claimed, but was a supporter of the idea of a Sanders/Stein ticket.
After the election, Christian made a point of posting to Facebook that he did not vote for Trump, that couldn’t bring himself to.
He was unambiguous about his dislike for Hillary Clinton and his admiration for Sanders.
