As always, while running stories about some White person who said something that offended someone, mass media ignores the real hate crimes. This one involves 27 year old Daniel Navarro who says he intentionally set out to kill a White man. That man turned out to be 55-year-old Phillip Thiessen a retired Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation special agent and former Virginia police officer.
Documents state that on July 3rd Navarro was driving a 2004 Dodge Dakota pickup when he intentionally swerved into Thiessen who was on his motorcycle hitting him head on. While Navarro admitted that he intentionally targeted a White man, he furthermore stated he targeted one riding a motorcycle instead of one in a car because he wanted him to die. A preliminary hearing is set for July 17th. He is being charged with first degree intentional homicide and first degree recklessly endangering safety with hate crime modifiers attached to both charges.
So just to reiterate, you have a Mexican American who admitted he intentionally set out to kill a White man and did so, yet the national media says nothing. Had this been the other way around it would be called Charlottesville all over and they’d be screaming about White racism, Trump’s America and so on. This double standard reporting is something I’ve focused on with this blog for awhile. By ignoring these stories all the while exploiting stories about a smirking kid in a MAGA hat or numerous other fake hate crimes, mass media is setting a distorted and dishonest representation of what America is. In reality, by purposely distorting the stats of hate crimes, they are doing more to fuel division and racism then they are trying to end it. It is deception and purposeful divisiveness, and it is malicious.
This case exemplifies this as the complaint states that Navarro said “if Trump and white people are going to create a world like we are living in, then he has no choice and people are going to have to die.” It’s evident that Navarro was motivated by the narrative that the national media has set. They have blood on their hands.
