Why You Aren’t Hearing About Santa Barbara Murderer’s Politics: He Was a Fan of Progressive ‘Young Turks’ Show


After every awful tragic shooting in America, pundits rush in hopes of pinning a big red “R” on the shooter to smear Republicans with, but they were disappointed when Santa Barbara shooter Elliot Rodger was found to be a fan of the Progressive YouTube show, “The Young Turks.”

As the Gateway Pundit reported, the deranged shooter’s YouTube channel was subscribed to many shows including those having to do with video games, but this was the only political show he was a fan of:


This was the same YouTube account where Rodgers posted his despicable ramblings about being unable to have a relationship with women and his plan for his “Day of Retribution.” The Young Turks channel is very popular among the left, sporting more than a billion views while spouting left-wing vitriol like the following:

Now, am I saying that somehow this left-wing show is to blame for the murders? No – but that’s exactly what they can’t wait to say about conservatism even when there’s absolutely no evidence for it.

How about ABC’s Brian Ross trying to call the Batman Killer a Tea Party member? Or when the media scrubbed the manifesto of cop-killing Chris Dorner of leftist themes? Or even when they mischaracterized the Oslo Norway murderer as a “conservative Christian”? For some reason, when the shooter has leftist sympathies, there’s not a drop of ink in the mainstream press on it.
