Skip to comments.MATTHEW SHEPARD: THE LIE CONTINUES
Posted on 10/14/2018 4:20:53 AM PDT by Altura Ct.
In 2009, Barack Obama honored dead gay man Matthew Shepard by putting his name on some silly-ass federal hate crimes act.
Now Shepards gay corpse will join other luminaries as Woodrow Wilson and Helen Keller by being interred at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC.
Ever since Shepards 1998 murder in Laramie, WY, his legacy has become sanctified to a nigh untouchable level. We are led to believe that two homophobic Wyoming rednecks met Shepard at a bar, then lured him to the outskirts of town, where they cracked his skull by pistol-whipping him and then tied him to a fence and set him on fire. We are also led to believein fact, we are forbidden from believing anything else, lest we be called naughty namesthat the sole reason these rednecks bashed this angelic little 52 gay man was because he was gay, and all Wyoming rednecks are secretly gay, which is why they take out their self-loathing by bashing in gay mens skulls with pistols.
Alas, just as with MLK and Nelson Mandela, any time someone is depicted as saintly, you can breathe easy knowing its a steamin crock o shit.
ABC News will tell you that Matthew was no different than any other young man that age.
Thats assuming that most young men that age were HIV-positive meth dealers. Thats also assuming that Shepard and his killers met that night and that they werent all meth dealers and that Shepard wasnt already involved sexually with at least one of them.
The view was that homophobic rednecks walked into a bar and saw an obviously gay man with money and targeted him and beat him to death for that reason, says Stephen Jimenez, author of The Book of Matt: Hidden Truths about the Murder of Matthew Shepard. But that isnt what happened. [Killer] Aaron McKinney and Matthew had a friendship. Theyd been involved sexually, they bought and sold drugs from each other. That complicates the original story of two strangers walking into a bar and targeting Matthewsomeone they did not knowbecause he was gay.
Jimenez, who is himself as unabashedly gay as a sprig of mistletoe on a red-velvet winters vest, spent thirteen years researching the case and says he originally arrived in Laramie convinced that it was a homophobic hate crime. But after interviewing 100 individuals close to the case, he suggests that the murder may have instead been the result of McKinneys five-day meth binge and an intent to rob Shepard of a $10K meth shipment that was coming into Laramie.
Jimeneze quotes a Laramie police officer with the incredibly macho name of Flint Waters:
I believe to this day that McKinney and Henderson were trying to find Matthews house so they could steal his drugs. It was fairly well known in the Laramie community that McKinney wouldnt be one that was striking out of a sense of homophobia. Some of the officers I worked with had caught him in a sexual act with another man, so it didnt fit none of that made any sense.
He also quotes investigator Ben Fritzen:
Shepards sexual preference certainly wasnt the motive in the homicide. What it came down to really is drugs and money.
Even the story that Shepard was tied to a fence as if he were crucified is a lie, despite the fact that nearly every major media outlet who reported on his upcoming interment at the National Cathedral repeated it unquestioningly. According to the lead detective on the case, Shepard was found sitting on the ground with his hands tied behind his back.
As much as it pains us to say it, the gay community really needs better hate-crime victims. Its not that we want anything bad to happen, but from a public-relations standpoint, it would certainly help their image, and we all know how image-conscious those rump-wranglers can be
In the Lawrence v Texas case, the caller to 911 was the jilted (and physically abused) boyfriend of one of the men. He wasn't a homophobic neighbor. Eventually he was murdered while waiting for his abuse case against his boyfriend went through the courts. He went to jail for a couple of weeks for swatting the couple.
In the Pulse nightclub shooting Obama said it wa because of right wing opposition to same sex marriage but the shooter was a bisexual muslim who'd been to the club on numerous occasions and who's wife knew he went there. His stated reason for his terrorist attack was as a response to Obama’s drone strikes on muslims.
It was a drug deal gone bad, not a fag killing.
And Benghazi was about a video on YouTube.
They change what is recorded as “history” so future generations will believe the lie. The Soviets were good ad changing history too.
Roe v Wade was built upon a lie as well. The Left can only advance their agenda under lies.
They lied about him having died, tied to the fence because that mental image vaguely akin to a Christ-like cruxifiction scene;
The Secular Fundamentalists want to DEIFY a snotty, diseased drug dealer.
And Benghazi was about a video on YouTube.
.... And Blousey-Ford was assaulted, right. Everything from the left is fake.
Reminds me of Horst Wessel.
Lies, lies and more lies.. The left is full of them..!
Quite simply, it’s because The Truth is not in them.
Thanks for posting that link. I had no idea.
The media did a great job on that one.......
The REAL story was widely reported by the British press. Any Americans believing this gay fairy tale are idiots.
“”Now Shepards gay corpse will join other luminaries as Woodrow Wilson and Helen Keller by being interred at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC.””
I’ll admit to trying to break the TV news habit but when did this happen?
National Cathedral in DC....HA!! After the service for McCain that took place there, it would be a better place to sentence people to punishment. Make them sit for the length of their sentence listening to the organist that played at that service. That would cure anyone of any desire to commit a crime.
The sanctification of a reckless homosexal’s life and death is an intolerable crime against humanity.
Or is it just a self-important lib church exercising their constitutional right to call themselves whatever they please however outrageously officious?
Because "Some dang church honors and re-inters Matthew Shepard" is a non-story.
The British Press reports more honestly about what happens in this country, even though they too are leftist, they don’t have a ‘dog in the fight’ and are bought by the unamerican left.
Foreign news is the place to go to get the filters removed.
