In a Rush to Blame the Left, White House Press Corps-Accredited Gateway Pundit Doxes Wrong Person in High School Shooting

WTF • Views: 36,568

Jim Hoft (aka, the Stupidest Man on the Internet) collaborator Lucian Wintrich is definitely working with the right person, because he’s equally hateful and equally stupid. (That’s his headline above.)

In the wake of today’s awful mass shooting at a Florida high school, Wintrich followed in Hoft’s footsteps with one of their tried and true right wing smear tactics — trying to prove immediately that the perpetrator of this horrible crime was a “registered Democrat.” They’ve pulled this little scheme so many times it’s impossible to count them all — they do it every single time, and that’s no exaggeration.

And this time, in their rush to pin this on the left, Wintrich doxed the wrong person: BREAKING: Don’t Let The MAGA Hat Fool You, Hispanic Shooter “Nicolas de Jesus Cruz” Was A Registered Democrat.

Notice how he specifically identifies the suspect as “Hispanic,” because that’s how grotesque and blatant Gateway Pundit’s bigotry is.

Wintrich’s source for the name of the shooter is a sketchy anonymous Twitter account that provides no link to back up the identification:

And that’s all he needed. Based on this one tweet, Wintrich rushed over to the Florida voter registration rolls, looked up the name, saw that “Nicolas de Jesus Cruz” was registered as a Democrat, and blasted it out on the Internet to their many right wing followers.

And it was the wrong person. The accused shooter actually spells his name “Nikolas Cruz,” according to the Broward County Sheriff’s office.

And far from being a “Democrat,” the real Nikolas Cruz was apparently fond of extreme right wing causes, was virulently anti-Muslim… and was a fan of Donald Trump.

“I knew him to be passive aggressive but not violent. He was rude to people. He had an act up like he was tough. He never got into like physical fights with anyone but he did get into verbal arguments,” 17-year-old Ocean Parodie told The Daily Beast. “I just thought he dropped out of school, I didn’t think he would do anything. He always kept a low profile.”

“He was definitely not accepted at our school socially. People saw him as someone who was different than the normal people at our school. At our school we have something called the Emo Gazebo. That’s where all the kids that are considered weird or not accepted sat. Kids at the Emo Gazebo didn’t even accept him there. He was just an outcast,” Parodie added.

“He always had his hair short. He always wore like really patriotic shirts that seemed really extreme, like hating on the Islamic religion. For example, he would say things such as like, he would degrade islamic people as terrorists and bombers. I’ve seen him wear a Trump hat. I don’t know if he ever said anything about women. He didn’t have any friends,” he said.

Nice work, Lucian Wintrich. You’re upholding the Gateway Pundit tradition of being stupidly wrong and creepily hateful.

And we should note in closing that this horrifyingly bad blog is now an accredited White House correspondent with access to the press room, and Donald Trump himself frequently tweets links to their garbage fraudulent articles.
