An analysis by the Washington Free Beacon shows that the mainstream media, unlike its obsession with the Kyle Rittenhouse “white supremacist” narrative, has lost interest in the massacre of six people and the injury of 40 more at a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin, a suburb of Milwaukee.
On Sunday, Darrell Brooks, 39, allegedly plowed his maroon SUV through the parade, running over grandmothers and children alike, and creating a horrific scene that was described by CNN, MSNBC, CBS, The Washington Post, and other outlets as an “incident” and a “crash.”
The driver of the SUV was not white, and the corporate media has quickly lost interest, barely mentioning the sixth death, that of a child, on its front pages on Wednesday.
Instead, the Washington Post led with a story about white supremacists, as did the New York Times, writing about a 2017 Charlottesville, Va. rally during which James Alex Fields Jr. rammed his car into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing one and injury 35.
After Sunday’s attack, Brooks was officially charged on Tuesday with five counts of first-degree intentional homicide, and a sixth charge was expected after the death of the child. Waukesha Police Chief Daniel said, “This is not a terrorist event.”
Brooks, who had been released on previous charges, is the product of the progressive criminal justice reform movement, similar to what Alaska Gov. Bill Walker signed into law with Senate Bill 91 in 2016, which was repealed by the Alaska Legislature and Gov. Mike Dunleavy as one of their first acts in 2018.
Brooks was let out of jail after having two weeks earlier allegedly punching and running over his girlfriend said to be the mother of his child.
Wednesday’s edition of The Washington Post mentioned the mass slaughter at the bottom of the front page, and the Times also positioned it at the bottom of Page One, calling it a crash.
“CNN, meanwhile, was not featuring a single story about the Waukesha tragedy on its homepage as of Wednesday afternoon. The news network, however, did prominently feature an ‘analysis’ piece headlined ‘Biden spins a message of hope as an anxious nation readies for Thanksgiving,’ as well as a report that former president Donald Trump ‘now has a ninth-degree black belt in taekwondo,'” The Beacon described.
