JEREMY JOSEPH CHRISTIAN. THE PRESS IS CALLING THE KNIFEMAN A WHITE SUPREMACIST.
The MSM are reporting that a white racist stabbed three men, killing two, on a Portland, Oregon train.
He slit throats when the White Knights tried to silence him while he was agitated and saying politically incorrect things.
It looks like he lost his temper, may have been on drugs, or was mental.is
PORTLAND, Ore. —
Portland Police and witnesses say a triple stabbing aboard a MAX train Friday afternoon may have been religiously motivated.
The stabbing was reported around 4:30 p.m. as the train pulled into the Hollywood Transit Center station in Northeast Portland. Two people have been pronounced dead and another has non-life threatening injuries.
Multiple witnesses told KATU the suspect was hurling racial insults at two women, at least one of whom was wearing a hijab. Police wouldn’t confirm their ages, but referred to them as “girls” and “young women.”
Sgt. Pete Simpson with Portland Police added the suspect appeared to be acting erratically, and wasn’t necessarily focused on anti-Muslim insults during the attack.
Two men who came to the women’s defense had their throats slashed by the suspect, Sgt. Simpson said.
He said the two young women had left the train before police arrived. Police have since made contact with them.
“[The suspect] said, ‘Get off the bus, and get out of the country because you don’t pay taxes here,’ [he said he] doesn’t like Muslims, they’re criminals,” Evelin Hernandez said.
The suspect is in police custody after he was caught in a nearby neighborhood thanks to multiple witness reports.
“It’s horrific. There is no other way to describe it,” Sgt. Simpson said.
Saturday morning, police identified the suspect as 35-year-old Jeremy Joseph Christian of North Portland.
Christian was seen at a march in Portland several weeks ago, where he was spotted giving what looked like the Nazi salute while hurling various insults at protesters.
He’s being charged with two counts of aggravated murder, attempted murder, two counts of intimidation and felon in possession of a restricted weapon.
The FBI released a statement late Friday night, saying it is offering Portland police help in its investigation and will be looking to see if any federal laws were broken.
“At the core of the FBI’s mission is the belief that every person has the right to live, work and worship in this country without fear,” the FBI said in its statement. “Hate and bigotry have no place in our community, and we will not allow violence in the name of hate to go unanswered.”
Downtrend is reporting the intriguing possibility that the alleged killer is not a right wing extremist. The dead busybodies are NOT Muslims.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations(CAIR) sees things differently because they have a vested interest in proving as much Islamophobia as possible.
“President Trump must speak out personally against the rising tide of Islamophobia and other forms of bigotry and racism in our nation that he has provoked through his numerous statements, policies and appointments that have negatively impacted minority communities,” said CAIR in a statement.
Oh, so now it’s Trump’s fault? Despite the fact that no Muslims were actually attacked, let alone killed in this double murder, there’s also the possibility that Christian was a left-wing kook. The Huffington Post spoke to his mother and she had some unique insight.
“It’s scary. I can’t imagine he would do anything like this, unless he was on drugs or something. He’s been in prison, he’s always been spouting anti-establishment stuff but he’s a nice person I just can’t imagine,” said Mary Christian.
The HuffPo then tries to tie Christian to white supremacy, but fails:
He’s also had ties to white supremacy in the area, according to authorities. On April 29, police confiscated a baseball bat from him at a “March for Free Speech” rally, after which he screamed racial epithets and gave the Nazi salute throughout the day…
Portland is ground zero for anti-Trump anarchist mayhem and violence. The March for Free Speech was part of that. The fact that Christian participated in this event points to him being a leftist. That he he gave Nazi salutes is meaningless as leftist agitators do this all the time. Throw everything together and Christian looks like a fascist liberal member of the Resistance, not an alt-right white supremacist.
Portland is full of liberal nut job social justice warriors. Downtrend has brought some great skepticism to the table.
The mother of one of the victims has identified him in this Facebook entry. His name is off the charts bizarre.
