    Surge Summary: In what is developing into a troubling pattern, the Mainstream Media seems to lose interest in mass attacks when it turns out the suspected perpetrator doesn’t fit the “right” profile to advance their “woke” agenda.

    Murder on the Hill

    Capitol Hill came under attack Friday.  A car rammed a security barrier, striking two Capitol Hill police officers in the process.  The driver then jumped out of the car, armed with a knife, and lunged at the officers.  The attacker was shot and killed.

    Capitol Hill Police Officer William Evans, an 18-year veteran of the department, was killed in the attack.  Our hearts and prayers go out to his family, including his two young children.  Evans was doing an important job on Capitol Hill, and he deserves to be remembered and honored for his service.

    Friday’s attack provided further evidence of how every news event is being filtered through a left-wing narrative in order to mold public opinion.  The primary facts about the killer were often left out of most media reports.

    The media reported that he quoted the Book of Revelation and that the attack occurred on Good Friday.  Was the driver a radical right Christian?  Nothing could be further from the truth.

    The media initially said that authorities could not find any link between the attacker and extremist groups.  That was a lie.  The attacker was a black Muslim, and a follower of Louis Farrakhan, whose stock and trade is hateful extremism aimed at America, Jews and whites.

    Barack Obama and the Congressional Black Caucus know just how extreme Louis Farrakhan is.  That’s why they went to great lengths to hide pictures for 13 years of a secret event they held with Farrakhan so the public would not associate Obama with the anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader.

    Just to be clear about this, the man who murdered Officer William Evans was a black supremacist.  That is the philosophy of Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam.

    Not only was that phrase not used in any media reporting that I saw, but something even more telling happened.  In a country where the media and the political left are obsessed with race, the killer quickly became a man with no race.  I did not hear one reporter describe the attacker as a black man.

    A Clear Pattern

    In case you don’t see the pattern, ponder this.  There have been three violent attacks in recent weeks: A white man in Atlanta killed eight people at Asian massage parlors; a Muslim Syrian in Boulder, Colorado, killed 10 white people in a store known for its Kosher foods days before Passover; and a black Muslim attacked Capitol Hill, killing a white police officer.

    Is it a coincidence that only one of these three incidents set off another round of media hysteria about hate crimes and America’s systemic racism?  But early evidence from the Atlanta murders, including the attacker’s confession, shows virtually no indication of racism.

    Meanwhile, authorities are still struggling to figure out what could have possibly motivated the other attacks by two Muslims.
