Robert Aaron Long has confessed to eight counts of murder and count of aggravated assault following his brutal attacks on three massage parlors in the greater Atlanta area of Georgia. We’re going to talk about the facts. The media and leftist politicians have crafted whole cloth from these attacks among other incidents that there is an ongoing increase in hate crimes against Asians. This narrative has perpetuated throughout all of the reporting on this tragic shooting spree. There’s only one problem: it isn’t true. The killer has said it himself, race had nothing to do with it. His only motive was sexual.
Owing to the businesses attacked being Asian owned and operated, the majority of the victims were Asian women. This no doubt caused the story to be immediately ascribed as a racist hate-crime.
Five people were shot and four killed at a massage parlor near Georgia Rt. 92, identified as Delaina Ashley Yaun, Xiaojie Tan, Paul Andre -Michels, Daoyou Feng, and Elcias R. Hernandez-Ortiz. Hernandez-Ortiz survived. Shortly after four more people were killed in shootings at two more spas in Atlanta: Hyun Jung Grant, Suncha Kim, Yong Yue and Soon Park, all four of those victims were Asian women. It was based on this fact alone that a narrative developed almost immediately that these attacks were another in a “series of anti-Asian hate crimes” fitting nicely into the left-wing narrative of hate-crimes directed toward Asians being on the rise in response to COVID, “conservative extremism” and white supremacy.
Here are Five Facts That Are Being Hidden By the Mainstream Media
- “Long told investigators the crimes were not racially motivated,” the statement added.
- Long was reportedly trying to flee to Florida, where the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office said that there was “some type of porn industry in that state” and that Long purportedly “wanted to do some similar act in that location.”
- Robert Aaron Long has been officially kicked out of his Georgia church, which called the massacre “the result of a sinful heart” and “antithetical to everything that we believe and teach as a church.”
- “Long told investigators that he blames the massage parlors for providing an outlet for his addiction to sex,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement on Wednesday. Meaning that had multiple politicians including Biden, Harris, the Governor of Georgia and both Senators just waited less than 24 hours, they wouldn’t have falsely attributed this crime to racism.
- Mainstream Media outlets like the Atlanta Journal-Constitution for example, seriously jumped ahead of the story, assigning an anti-Asian racial motive to the crime.
The Left-Wing Denial Is Astonishing
The craziest part of the left-wing/mainstream media response to this terrible crime is that they are now in such denial that leftist talking heads like Trevor Noah have doubled down on their assertion of his anti-Asian motivation. According to TheBlaze,
On Wednesday’s episode of “The Daily Show,” Noah said that it’s obvious to him that someone who murders six Asian women is racist.
“What’s been sad about the story is not just the loss of life but all the auxiliary things that have been happening around the story,” Noah began. “Like, one of the first things that’s been the most frustrating for me is seeing the shooter say, ‘Oh, it wasn’t racism, it was sex addiction.’ First of all, f*** you, man. You killed six Asian people. Specifically. You went there. If there’s anyone who’s racist, it’s a motherf***er who kills six Asian women. Your murders speak louder than your words.”
Noah continued insisting that anti-Asian sentiment (read: Trump and Conservatives calling it the China Virus, Wuhan flu or Kung Flu) are truly behind the crime. The killer’s own admissions be damned.
“Six Asian women were killed!” he continued. “And you know, in a way, what makes it even more painful is that we saw it coming. We see these things happening. People have been warning. People in the Asian community have been tweeting, saying, ‘Please, help us. We’re getting punched in the streets, we’re getting slurs written on our doors, we’re getting people coming up to us saying thanks for COVID, thanks for spoiling the world.’ We’ve seen this happening. And while we’re fighting for it, there are many people who have been like, ‘Oh, stop being so woke and so dramatic. Kung flu, hahaha. It’s just a joke.’ Yeah, it’s a joke that has come at one of the most tense times in human history. You knew that something like this could happen.”
He finished his screed, “Whatever you do, please, don’t tell me that this thing had nothing to do with race. Even if the shooter says that — he thinks it has to do with his sex addiction — you can’t disconnect his violence from the racial stereotypes that people attach to Asian women. This guy blamed a specific race of people for his problems and then murdered them because of it. If that’s not racism then the word has no meaning.”
Long blamed his Sex addiction for his crime and likely had been to at least one of the establishments to satisfy his urges based upon his statements. “It’s a temptation for him that he wanted to eliminate,” Baker noted. As stated above he viewed these locations as “an outlet” for his urges. These are facts. Not opinions.
This is truly disturbing twist as the left and mainstream are no longer hiding their strategy: When the facts don’t fit their narrative, simply insist that the facts don’t matter.
