A Fraud in Sheep's Clothing?

It turns out the Leftmedia's account of Matthew Shepard's torture and murder may be a falsehood to serve the homosexual agenda.

As if ripped from the Soviet Information Bureau’s book Falsifiers (edited and partially penned by Joseph Stalin himself), it turns out the Leftmedia’s account of Matthew Shepard’s torture and murder in Wyoming for being a homosexual may be a falsehood peddled to curry public favor for the homosexual agenda. If you recall, Shepard was a young homosexual in Wyoming who was tortured and left for dead hanging from a fence back in 1998. The two defendants whom Shepard previously met in a lounge claimed at trial their “gay panic” defense caused them to kill Shepard in a rage. The two were convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Almost immediately Shepard became a cause célèbre for advancing the media’s narrative of a blameless lad who nobly suffered and died for the cause of homosexual rights against an unjust nation’s homophobia.

Thanks to a new book by a homosexual journalist, however, much of this meme turns out to be an outlandish hoax. In The Book of Matt, investigative journalist Stephen Jiminez interviewed more than 100 people including Shepard’s friends, the killers and their friends. Jiminez’s evidence led him to conclude Shepard’s sexuality may not have been the reason for his demise. Jiminez argues Shepard was also a meth dealer as well as a sex partner with one of the men convicted of killing him. Jiminez further argues Shepard’s murderer may have killed him because Shepard allegedly came into possession of a large amount of methamphetamine and refused to give it up. Further clouding the media narrative, the book also shows Shepard’s killer was on a five-day meth binge at the time of the killing. The Leftmedia seems upset that their duplicity in failing to fairly report on the matter to advance a liberal agenda has been exposed. There seems to be a lot of that occurring since 2008.
