As always happens following a mass shooting event, there’s a mad rush for each political party to tie the shooter to the other side of the aisle. Today, the entire left-wing media reported that Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz had “drilled” with a white supremacy group called the Republic of Florida. But it turns out this may not be the case at all. Law enforcement sources are now stating there’s no evidence linking Cruz to the group, and the group’s leader — Jordan Jereb — has been outed as an attention seeker with a history of fibbing to acquire more limelight for himself and his tiny group that almost no one has ever heard of before today.
“Leon County law enforcement sources told the Tallahassee Democrat that they could not find information linking Cruz, 19, to the Republic of Florida Militia, as claimed by the group’s self-proclaimed leader Jordan Jereb,” reports the Tallahassee Democrat newspaper. “[Jordan’s] comments to the Anti-Defamation League and The Associated Press set off a media firestorm Thursday at about midday that Cruz was connected to the alt-right, white nationalist group.”
According to the paper, Leon County Sheriff Office spokesperson Lt. Grady Jordan stated, “We are still doing some work but we have no known ties between the ROF, Jordan Jereb or the Broward shooter.”
Jordan Jereb had reportedly claimed Nikolas Cruz was a member of his group — a group no one had ever heard of until today, by the way — but he since posted to social media claiming his group has “more than one member named Nikolas.”
It appears Jereb is now attempting to walk back his initial claim that Cruz was part of his Republic of Florida group. The left-wing media, however, has already concluded that Cruz was part of some sort of white supremacy activity, which seems especially odd given the fact that Cruz gunned down white people in his shooting rampage.
We’ve also learned today that the Associated Press, an anti-Second Amendment propaganda news organization that despises President Trump, originally sourced its information claiming Cruz’s ties to the Republic of Florida by reading 4Chan, an anonymous message board that’s well known for perpetuating hoaxes.
“It was a all a far left media conspiracy,” reports The Gateway Pundit. Once again, the Associated Press appears to have gotten it completely wrong.

Via Breitbart News:
A team of reporters at HuffPost published an article Thursday evening under the headline, “Evidence Linking Alleged Florida Shooter To White Supremacist Group Is Really Thin.”
The HuffPost article names the ADL as the original source of the claim that Cruz had ties to the ROF. It notes, however, that Jereb himself seemed to have backtracked on his statement to the ADL, posting on the Gab social media forum that his statement to the ADL was the result of a “misunderstanding.”
Rumors have circulated on social media that the entire story was a prank planted by users of the 4Chan message boards, or an attempt by Jereb to seek attention.
The question deserves serious consideration: If Cruz was really part of some sort of white supremacist group, why did he shoot and kill so many white people? The Miami Herald has published the full list of shooting victims. They’ve also published the following photo of the victims:
I don’t know about you, but this photo does not appear to represent a “target list” for the murderous rampage of a white supremacist:
(Our prayers go out to all these victims and their families, by the way. No high school student or teacher should have to endure such senseless violence…)
Also, it’s worth noting that left-wing comedians like Chris Rock are right now openly calling for more shootings of white kids in order to “even out” police violence across multiple races. It appears Chris Rock got his wish with the Florida high school shooting, which took the lives of 17 innocent people (so far), most of whom would be considered “white” by society.
It makes me wonder: Just how much does the hatred, violence and bigotry of people like Chris Rock actually contribute to the mass killing of white students like we just saw in Florida? Note that Netflix hasn’t pulled the Chris Rock comedy special that calls for shooting white kids, either. Can you imagine the outcry if a white comedian took the stage and called for “more shootings of black kids?”
My takeaway from all this? I’ve noticed that calls for violence are now “mainstream” ideas among Leftists, who seem to express unending racism, bigotry and intolerance toward whites, Christians and Trump supporters. On the fringes of the political Right, there are a tiny number of actual white supremacists and black-hating racists, but their numbers are so small that they’re nothing but statistical aberrations, and they certainly do not represent mainstream conservatism.
Sadly, the idea of killing people with whom you disagree is now the standard narrative among Leftists. How many left-leaning celebrities and deranged Hollywood elitists have openly wished for Trump to be hurt or killed? How many Leftists have openly called for the killing of conservative speakers, white people or Bible followers? You rarely see such violent rhetoric pursued by conservatives, but it’s everyday dialog among Leftists, where Trump Derangement Syndrome is now commonplace.
The hatred of the Left is now so out of control that Leftists attacked the parents of one of the shooting victims solely because her father is a Trump supporter. “On Wednesday a man named Andrew Pollack was photographed searching for his daughter, Meadow. Thursday Pollack said, ‘she’s gone’ after finding out his daughter was killed by mass shooter Nikolas Cruz. Evil liberals hurled insults to the grieving father simply because he’s a Trump supporter,” reports The Gateway Pundit. “Liberals are pure evil. They have zero decency.”
Maybe it’s time for the deranged Left to realize just how much they are whipping up an environment of violence and hatred across America. Will people like Chris Rock apologize for profiting off a “comedy” routine that’s actually nothing more than a racist, hate-filled violence rant? Will Jimmy Kimmel ever return to doing comedy instead of a nightly HATE broadcast to refresh the hatred in the minds of the gullible masses? Or will the unhinged Left now demand all conservatives give up their self-defense rights so that the next Democrat President can operate an actual totalitarian dictatorship with no counter balance among We the People?
Milo was right when he said the Left “has already started the civil war.” The real question is: How exactly will this insanity end?
