Americans want to know who Aaron Alexis was. That is a fact and every media organization knows that. The media does an outstanding job of finding out every detail about a person when something like this happens (a sad and tragic murder of innocent people). There is one question millions of Americans want to know and the media is intentionally ignoring this question.
I ask readers to be honest with themselves. When the murders began at the Navy Yard did you not start thinking of Ft. Hood? Of course we did. Did we not start asking ourselves if this is a terrorism event in the name of Islam? Of course we did. Has the media even mentioned what religion Aaron Alexis was? Of course not. Do they know? Of course they do.
From AP: U.S. law enforcement officials told The Associated Press that there was no known connection to terrorism and that investigators have found no manifesto or other writings suggesting a political or religious motive.
I am not suggesting Aaron Alexis was a Muslim, but as a concerned citizen and former law enforcement officer I want to know everything there is to know about these murders of inocent people. The motive behind any murder is very important and not only helps solve cases it can also be a tool to possibly prevent future violence.
How many of you have been searching Google for anything about Aaron Alexis's religion? Be honest. The media is doing Americans an injustice by not reporting the religion of Alexis. If he is Christian I want to know, if he is Jewish I want to know, if he is a Satanist I want to know, if he is a Muslim I want to know.
Right now there are liberal haters of Dave Gaubatz who would be saying based on my above remarks that I am saying Alexis was Muslim. Of course this is not what I am saying but the truth to liberals means absolutely nothing.
Why are media organizations not even mentioning if Alexis was or was not a Muslim? For the liberal media the answer is so obvious I want even begin to explain. I am more concerned with media outlets like Fox News. Do the journalists who make millions like Hannity and the others not think Americans want to know what religion Alexis was? Hannity himself wants to know and it was probaly one of his first questions he was asking when the murders began. Fox News doesn't want to being up anything about the shooters religion because they will get the little fingers of liberals pointed at them. They don't want to be accused of being insensitive to a religion.
I do not get paid millions for writing articles or speaking at events about terrorism issues, as a matter of fact I make absolutely nothing. But as a freelance journalist I feel it is important in today's times that Americans are told up front if there is even the slightest hint that an incident such as at the Navy Shipyard was in any way related to Islam. We are owed this and Americans should not feel guilty or ashamed of wanting to know if a murderer was Muslim or not.
Why do Americans have a right to know if a person involved in the large scale deaths such as Alexis was Muslim or not?
1. The answer is rather simple. All around the world there are murders of innocent people by people who are Muslim.
2. There are civil wars and fighting in numerous Islamic based countries.
3. Al Qaeda and other Islamic terrorist groups have said they would strike at the American people.
4. Al qaeda and others have been responsible for killing thousands of Americans in the last decade.
5. The Islamic ideology itselfs calls for hatred and violence against non Muslims.
I could go on and on, but the point is we have a right to know what religion a person is when we have attacks as in the Navy Yards. If this question is in the backs of people's minds then it should be answered and we have no reason to feel guilty.
I want to clarify that I do not know what religion Alexis was, but I will dig until I find out.
