CNN is reporting that they got access to the Florida shooter’s private Instagram chat and found some alarming stuff in there.
CNN, investigating comments the shooter may have left on a now-deleted YouTube channel, was added to the private Instagram group by one of the active members in it. The responding group members, who appear to be younger than 18, have refused to confirm their identities to CNN on or off the record.
When asked for comment or whether they knew about the private chat group, the FBI directed CNN to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.
Most of the conversation in the group since Cruz joined around August 2017 is between six people — including Cruz.
Does that sound legit? Because the rest of this is a liberal CNN reporter’s dream, and they’ve already been caught in a hoax about Cruz’s affiliations:
Racism was a constant theme in the chat group, which was called “Murica (American flag emoji) (eagle emoji) great” — a name it was given by Cruz.
The hatred he and others in the group espoused met little resistance from its active members. In one part of the group chat, Cruz wrote that he hated, “jews, ni**ers, immigrants.”
He talked about killing Mexicans, keeping black people in chains and cutting their necks. The statements were not made in jest.
There are hundreds of racist messages, racist memes and racist Instagram videos posted in the group.
One member even joked about Cruz’s particular venomousness, saying that although he hated black people, too, he didn’t “to a point I wanna kill the (sic) like nick.”
Cruz said he hated black people simply because they were black; Cruz hated Jews because he believed they wanted to destroy the world.
After one member expressed hatred for gay people, Cruz agreed, saying, “Shoot them in the back of head.”
So we’ll see if this is accurate, or another hoax the mainstream media fell for because of their zeal to shove Cruz into a pigeonhole convenient to the left…
