The liberal media has again found itself spreading fake news, proclaiming that the person who shot up the YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, California on Tuesday was a “white woman” with a “scarf on her head.” After the suspect was named and her picture was shown later in the day, the narrative had been destroyed, but that wasn’t the only thing they got wrong.
The NBC Bay Area investigative unit reported on Tuesday night that the shooter was YouTuber Nasim Aghdam. According to the report, Aghdam had a large presence on YouTube and had ranted about, what she perceived as, discrimination by the online video giant, but a motive has not been named by authorities.
Nasim Aghdam uploaded a video to Facebook in January 2017, criticizing YouTube for age-restricting, filtering and demonetizing her videos. In the video, Aghdam says her channel used to get lots of views, but that after being “filtered” by YouTube, it received far fewer views.

“Nasim the Persian Azeri female vegan bodybuilder, also animal rights activist promoting healthy and humane living. Nasim produced and launched the first Persian TV commercial and music video (Do You Dare) regarding animal rights and veganism through international Iranian satellite Television in 2010,” the “About” section of her YouTube channel read. The “Persian Azeri” sounds a lot like a “white woman” doesn’t it?
CNN reporter Shimon Prokupecz speculated that the shooting could have been the result of a “love triangle” when he learned that the shooter was a woman. This assumption has caused many people on social media to call him a sexist.

The only thing that can save CNN now is that it's indeed a 🍎triangle and not a circle.🍌 https://t.co/JnVD41RZly

Nasim Aghdam was also an animal rights activist who shared several videos and photos of animals being abused. In 2009 she was part of a protest at Camp Pendleton where she spoke to The Los Angeles Times. “For me, animal rights equals human rights. Just because they can’t talk doesn’t mean we should take advantage of them,” she said.
In an online rant, she complained that YouTube censored her content by imposing an age restriction on one of her workout videos because they were too racy. However, she says that the company failed to do the same thing for stars like Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj, whose videos are inappropriate for children.
Aghdam shot three people in the rampage before killing herself on Tuesday. Despite the immediate anti-NRA rants on social media and the calls for more gun control by Rep. Nancy Pelosi and others, every narrative that would have helped the left’s gun-grabbing agenda was obliterated.
A Persian woman in gun control California — and not a white, Christian man in a place like Montana — committed the attack. It’s going to be tough for them to use that in their fundraising campaigns.
