CNN deceptively covered up details about the Fort Lauderdale shooter that show him as a jihadist. When CNN released a picture of Esteban Santiago-Ruiz, they made sure they doctored the image to prevent viewers from seeing any connection to ISIS. For starters, they made the photo black and white. After that, they cut out his scarf and hand.
Why did they edit the shooter’s hand? Because he was conveying ISIS’s one fingered salute. They also cut out most of his scarf, known as keffiyeh in Middle East culture. In the undoctored photo, you see the beard, the keffiyeh and the one-fingered salute–you can quickly figure out where this BITCH’s loyalties lie.
Moreover, WeSearchr did some real reporting and found some intriguing facts about Santiago-Ruiz that CNN would rather we not find out. They found a connection between “Naota33,” the shooter’s online username, posting in a thread about Islamic terrorist propaganda.
According to CBS, the shooter told the FBI he was being forced to fight for ISIS. CNN cut out common ISIS symbols though, such as the one finger salute.
CNN wants to distract America from the facts, if they think they can get away with it. Otherwise, they can’t continue to push their anti-second amendment propaganda. If Americans see the connection between the Fort Lauderdale shooter and ISIS, they are less inclined to push for anti-gun legislation.
