So this happened today:
A Capitol Police officer was killed Friday after a man rammed a car into two officers at a barricade outside the U.S. Capitol and then emerged wielding a knife....

Video shows the driver of the crashed car emerging with a knife in his hand and starting to run at the pair of officers, Capitol Police Acting Chief Yogananda Pittman told reporters. Authorities shot the suspect, who died at a hospital.

Two law enforcement officials told The Associated Press that the suspect stabbed one of the officers....

Police identified the slain officer as William “Billy” Evans, an 18-year veteran who was a member of the department’s first responders unit.
We know who the assailant was. has a report on Green with quite a bit of information from Green's Facebook page, as well as screenshots. But you can't see the page now -- it's deleted.

Which some of our wingnut friends find very suspicious. Or at least they're pretending to be suspicious.

Of course Facebook deleted his page. The social media pages of mass shooters and similarly newsworthy criminals are invariably deleted shortly after their identies become public. Trust me, I know -- over the years, I've often tried to write posts based on the information in these social media feeds, and they invariably disappear too fast for me to find them. is my go-to site for such information, because Heavy always gets to the pages and feeds before they're taken down. But they're always taken down.

Gorka and Ngo know that. They also know that their fan base doesn't know that. They're concocting a conspiracy in which Facebook wants to suppress information about Green because ... well, you explain it, Ted.

Actrually, Ted, they disappear from the news because we have so many berserkers in America we've become numb. It's true that we lingered on the Atlanta shooter because we saw his crime as part of a wave of anti-Asian violence -- but then we forgot about him, because there was another mass shooting. And now this.

Will someone at Fox pick up on this "woke Facebook wants to suppress the news" nonsense? I assume Tucker Carlson will. But even if it stops here, it's bad. When you tell people this sort of thing, you make them less well informed. It's anti-news rather than news.
