BUCK: Media Obsessed with Shooters’ Motives… Except When They’re Jihadists

Speaking on his national radio program Thursday night, host Buck Sexton ripped liberal reporters who pretend they “may never know” the motives when jihadi terrorists strike, but are now obsessed with reporting on the true intentions of the Las Vegas gunman who killed 59 people last weekend.
“I’m talking about the media… When there’s a jihadist who’s running around yelling ‘Allahu Akbar,’ and actually even in some cases screaming into a phone about how he’s doing this for the Islamic State, you will have journalists who say, ‘We may never know the motive. We may never fully know the motive here,” said Buck.
“Most of America sits around saying, ‘No, actually we do know the motive right now. We’re all quite aware of what the jihadist running around stabbing people yelling he’s doing this for ISIS. Pretty sure we get the picture,’” he added.
“You hear a lot of that from the media. ‘We may never know the motive.’ You heard that after the Chattanooga terrorist shooting. Guys going after US military personnel, radicalized Muslim. Very obvious what the motive was there,” Sexton said.
“What’s happened in Las Vegas, from what I can see is not terrorism. There’s no political motive to it, no political ideology that we know of yet. We don’t have it. It’s not there yet,” said Buck.
“Now finally, here is a case where we may never know the motive,” he added.
