2017 Portland train murders
On May 26, 2017, Jeremy Christian, a disturbed homeless man, stabbed three men to death on the city's mass transit train. According to media reports, Christian made anti-Muslim remarks to two teenage girls who appeared to be Muslim. Reports also say that he made other "anti-everything" and "anti-religious" remarks. The three men were stabbed as they attempted to defend the girls.
The left-wing media was quick to label Christian as "racist," "right-wing," "anti-Muslim," and a "white separatist," despite the fact that Christian's Facebook posts painted a very different picture, showing him to be left-wing in his opinions, such as supporting atheism, marijuana use, and opposing controversial oil pipelines, and to hate all "monotheists," including Jews and Christians, and to be anti-racist. He also voted for Bernie Sanders and supported Jill Stein in the 2016 presidential election, was rejected by Trump voters at events, and held many other left-wing positions.
