#ChapelHillShootings: “Hardcore Anti-Religion Atheist Progressive” (Updates)

Overnight, 3 people were shot and killed by one Craig Stephen Hicks.

It will be interesting in the coming days to see how the local and national media plays this one.
Update: Sister Toldjah is already responding. More here.

Over at PJ media, the headline reads: Killer of 3 UNC-Chapel Hill Muslim Students Was Hardcore Anti-Religion Atheist Progressive

Snippet from the article, emphasis added:

A review of the Facebook page of the man charged in these murders, Craig Hicks, shows a consistent themes of anti-religion and progressive causes. Included in his many Facebook “likes” are the Huffington Post, Rachel Maddow, the Southern Poverty Law Center, Freedom from Religion Foundation, Bill Nye “The Science Guy,” Neil deGrasse Tyson, Gay Marriage groups, and a host of anti-conservative/Tea Party pages.

Southern Poverty Law Center?

Flashback:  SPLC-inspired shooter Floyd Lee Corkins sentenced to 25 years

Voter information shows Hicks is registered unaffiliated, but the history showed Democrat support as did his Facebook page.


 

UPDATE: Looks like this might have nothing to do with religion or lack thereof and to have been over a parking dispute??

UPDATE: Southern Poverty Law Center Under Scrutiny Over ‘Extremist Watch List’…

UPDATE:  ABC NewsThe article is littered with statements from Hicks family, lawyer and NC officials saying this wasn’t religiously motivated like this one,  “U.S. Attorney in North Carolina Ripley Rand said, “We don’t have any information that this was a targeted campaign against Muslims in North Carolina.””

Sorry NC, the FBI is going to show up anyway to investigate. They want to know if it was a ‘hate crime’.  Question: Did the FBI investigate Mohammed Reza Taheri-azar for a ‘hate crime’ when he plowed his SUV into ‘The Pit’ at UNC Chapel Hill? Nope, yet  in Taheri-azar’s own words, it was religiously motivated.
