Within hours of the Parkland shooting in February of 2018, the demonstrably left-wing mainstream media began running reports about the suspected shooter’s “Make America Great Again.” Why? Presumably in a bid to tie him to their veritable archnemesis, President Donald Trump.
Following a mass shooting Tuesday by two students at the STEM School Highlands Ranch, a charter school in Colorado, no similar efforts were made to inform the public of one of the suspect’s hatred for both Christians and the president. Instead only a few select outlets pointed this out.
Among them was Heavy.com, which scoured 18-year-old suspect Devon Erickson’s social media feeds and discovered that he boasts hateful views toward both Christians and the president.

“You know what I hate? All these Christians who hate gays, yet in the bible, it says in Deuteronomy 17:12-13, if someone doesn’t do what their priest tells them to do, they are supposed to die. It has plenty of crazy stuff like that,” he reportedly wrote in one Facebook post.
Just to be clear, Christians don’t hate gays. They do however believe that homosexuality is a sin. Why? Because the Christian Bible describes homosexuality as such, as renowned Christian evangelist and missionary Rev. Franklin Graham noted last month in a Twitter post about the 2020 election:
Mayor Buttigieg says he’s a gay Christian. As a Christian I believe the Bible which defines homosexuality as sin, something to be repentant of, not something to be flaunted, praised or politicized. The Bible says marriage is between a man & a woman—not two men, not two women. 2/3

Erickson, who’s reportedly a registered Democrat, also “shared posts criticizing Donald Trump and praising Barack Obama.” One of the latter was a meme from the radical left-wing group Occupy Democrats that listed former President Barack Obama’s alleged accomplishments.
