Media tries to blame Portland murders on Trump, turns out he was a Bernie supporter

Earlier today a Portland left-wing extremist by the name of Jeremy Christan killed two people on a train for “defending Muslims”

Excerpt from Al Jazeera:

Two men have been stabbed to death after they tried to intervene when a man yelled racial slurs at two Muslim women on a light-rail train in Portland, Oregon, US police said.

A third train passenger, who also tried to stop the bullying, was badly wounded and taken to hospital, The Oregonian newspaper reported on Friday.

The suspect, 35-year-old Jeremy Joseph Christian of Portland, was arrested shortly after he left the train, police said.

Christian was booked into jail on two counts of aggravated murder and additional charges of attempted murder, intimidation in the second degree and being a felon in possession of a restricted weapon, police said. He was ordered held without bail.

Before the stabbing, the assailant was ranting on many topics, using “hate speech or biased language”, and then turned his focus on the women, police spokesman Pete Simpson said.

“In the midst of his ranting and raving, some people approached him and appeared to try to intervene with his behaviour and some of the people that he was yelling at,” Simpson told The Oregonian. “They were attacked viciously.”

Now, the media ate this story up. They saw a violent crime towards Muslims and were quick to blame Donald Trump and his “rhetoric”. It turns out Jeremy was a Bernie-supporter.
