Chris Hayes Gets One Right On Similarity Of Muslim Murders To Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown Killings

Of course, he gets it right for the wrong reasons, and means something entirely different than what the truth actually is.

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes took about a minute and a half out of his show All In on Thursday night in between guests to give his thoughts on the recent killing of three Muslim students in North Carolina and, naturally, he brought their minority status into the picture by proclaiming their deaths to be a “galvanizing” “Trayvon Martin moment” and “Michael Brown moment for Muslim-Americans.”

In such a short period of time, Hayes was able to perfectly espouse a representative commentary on how the left views race and minorities and omit any mention of reality or observe the awful tragedy as it was.

And he’s right.

Like the Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown cases, the truth of the matter does not matter to those who are seeking to shape the narrative. Details that don’t fit the narrative are dismissed. Thus family members of the victims – three young people who remind me very much of three beloved Muslim former students (a brother and two sisters) who are now doctors – have insisted upon blaming Fox News, Christian conservatives and Republican politicians for the murders, despite the fact that the killer was an atheist, a left-winger, and a fan of MSNBC who apparently committed this crime because of a dispute over a parking space. In a situation where the killings are senseless and meaningless, there is an attempt to make the event have meaning – even if doing so comes at the cost of making the facts the fourth casualty.

But this has become a common tactic – falsely declaring someone a martyr in the service of something that is declared to be a greater good. But that method, championed by Hayes here, comes at a cost – whether it is the persecution of a man who defended himself from an assault, the destruction of a town because a police officer used lawful force when attacked by a suspect, or the destruction of the lives of young men on college campuses who have been falsely accused of sexual assault and have been condemned by kangaroo courts. After all, the logic goes, the truth is not nearly as important or as relevant as the meta-truth that the lies are intended to serve.
