He was killed in a drug deal gone bad, and they made him a saint. Now his ashes are being buried in The National Cathedral in DC?

Un-fricking-believeable!

Every word in the original article was a lie, including ‘the’ and ‘and,’

(with apologies to Dorothy Sayers)

Will there be a story next year remembering the murder of Jesse Dirkhising some 20 years later or what?

I didn’t think so.

Read “The Book of Matt.” Excellent investigative work by a journalist who is gay himself. He didn’t find what he expected: Shepard was a meth dealer and gay male prostitute who was meeting the man who killed him to trade sex for drugs - as he had done at least once before.

They did but the narrative is more important; the noble lie.

He was killed for drug deal not for his perverted homosexuality.

He OWED DRUG MONEY to those other fellow drug-dealers, one of whom he often humped (or was humped by).

He died SITTING, not hung from a fence.

A lot of perps that have been killed by the police have been made into heroes by the lame street media in recent years.

But in October 1998, that all changed, when the openly gay homosexual college student...

HOMOSEXUAL, because there's nothing GAY about it.

Stonewall bar in NYC is a historical gay mecca where homoz rioted after they could no longer stand police repression, right?

Nope!

Wasn’t a bar, it was a bottle-club and it was mobbed up.

The primary income of the biz was selling drinks to gay guys, yes, but some of the patrons caused trouble and when the trouble-maker was closeted, often the mob guys would kill 2 birds with 1 stone by BLACKMAILING the trouble-maker:

They’d get money, plus the guy would stop going there, right? Which was what they wanted.

Well this one guy got really violent about getting blackmailed and THAT is why there was a riot.

They just changed the story cuz that’s what they preferred, just as with the Holy Saint Matt Shepard BS story.

My son was a Senior at Wyo. when this happened. He said Matt was a known drug dealer on campus. His death was the result of a deal gone bad. No homophobia involved.

His killers admitted on 20/20 years ago that they were fellow homosexuals.

OFFS! The poor widdle gay boy was killed for being gay. This story line will never be changed. Kind of like gentle giant mikey brown was turning his life around headed for college and had his hands up when he was murdered by a rogue white cop. 🐂💨💩
