A married couple was murdered in cold blood by a sniper while mourning their dead son in a veterans’ cemetery on Friday.
The 85-year-old woman was pronounced dead on the scene, and her 86-year-old husband was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead on Saturday. They were murdered by 29-year-old Sheldon C. Francis, who hunted the two elderly people and targeted them while they were most vulnerable.
This heinous crime will not get much coverage from the fake news media though, because the victims were white and the perpetrator was black.
Francis was killed after a firefight with police not too long after committing his heinous act. Officers chased him into a remote area in the woods and they exchanged gunfire. Francis’ body was found at approximately 4 p.m. on Friday in the Brennen Estates neighborhood bordering the veteran’s cemetery where he gunned down the elderly people.
Big League Politics reported earlier this year on the case of a black mass shooter who the fake news media attempted to paint in a sympathetic light because of the supposed racism he experienced on the job:
Last week, an African-American shooter murdered five of his former co-workers, all of whom just so happened to be of a different race than the killer, at the Molson Coors Brewery in Milwaukee, Wisc.
If this had been a Caucasian shooter targeting co-workers of a different race, there would have been wall-to-wall coverage about the racist intent of the shooter. However, since the shoe was on the other foot, the fake news media turned their eye on the supposedly racist atmosphere at the brewery as being the reasoning behind the shooting.
The perpetrator of the heinous murders, 51-year-old electrician Anthony N. Ferrill, had a long history of whining about alleged and unproven racist acts happening to him on the job.
“The dispute may have had racial overtones. Ferrill was African American, and accused the brewery of discriminating against him. He had talked of suing the company, the worker said. Ferrill had complained that employees were coming into his home, bugging his computer, moving chairs around,” the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.
Instead of dismissing these accusations as the ravings of a madman, the fake news ran with them and used them in an attempt to paint the killer in a sympathetic light.
CNN ran a story titled “Noose once placed on locker of shooter at Molson Coors, company says” while the Washington Post ran a story titled “Noose found on gunman’s locker at Milwaukee Coors facility years before deadly shooting.”
Will Josh Hawley be the Next Champion for an America First Foreign Policy?
America First May Have its Next Leader to End Wars Abroad
Does America First have a new non-interventionist champion?
Missouri Senator Josh Hawley has been viewed by many as one of the figures who could potentially lead a Trumpist movement after Trump, should Joe Biden end up being installed as president on January 2021.
Hawley has made a name for himself as a champion of Middle America and questioning the neoliberal orthodoxy on immigration and trade. Lately, Hawley has made a pivot towards questioning the interventionist conventional wisdom on foreign policy.
In early October of this year, the Missouri Senator called for the American government to withdraw troops from Afghanistan. Hawley tweeted, “Almost 20 years now in Afghanistan. Long past time to draw this war to an end.”
Hawley’s foreign policy has been a work progress over the past two years. During a 2019 speech Hawley gave at the Center for a New American Security (CNAS), he questioned the nation-building policy prescriptions of previous administrations, demonstrating some degree of skepticism towards non-stop interventionism abroad on the part of the Senator.
That said, it remains to be seen if Hawley’s legislative record will fully match his rhetoric.
Hawley is a staunch China hawk, who fears the rise of China and is a strong voice against China’s expansionist efforts. Hawley’s track record shows that his foreign policy views are rough around the edges. Daniel Larison of The American Conservative is not as optimistic about Hawley judging by his votes on the Yemeni Civil War. Larison cited several of Hawley’s votes that may be cause for concern:
“Sen. Hawley voted against the Senate’s resolution of disapproval that opposed the president’s effort to circumvent Congress with a bogus “emergency” to expedite arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the UAE. More important, he voted with the president and most Senate Republicans against the antiwar Yemen resolution that would have cut off all U.S. support to the Saudi coalition.”
Nevertheless, Hawley’s comments on Afghanistan are a good sign that Hawley is catching on to the fact that Americans are tired of foreign wars. Politicians can change their views and behaviors. Hawley is likely recognizing that the America First movement is exhausted by the endless wars and wants candidates and elected officials who offer withdrawal plans.

Journalist Glenn Greenwald, a fierce interventionist skeptic, maintained cautious optimism about Hawley. In a tweet, he commented, “All kinds of reasons to be skeptical of the authenticity here, but — purely as a matter of rhetoric — just imagine any national Republican speaking this way about a Dem administration even 10 years ago. The framework of politics is radically shifting.”

The jury is still out on Hawley. Regardless of flaws in his voting record, America First advocates should continue to push him and other America First leaning Republicans in the right direction. We should never forget that politicians are still receptive to political pressure and the grassroots holds the keys to political change.
Young senators like Hawley are the future of American politics and it makes sense for foreign policy restrainers to lobby them and push them in a direction that favors non-interventionism.
