Why isn’t there more reporting about Americans killed by suspected jihadist?

#BrendanTevlin was finally trending on Twitter yesterday. If you don’t know who that is, you’re not alone as the MSM has been largely ignoring the story that might finally be starting to gain traction:

#BrendanTevlin 's accused killer sz he did it to avenge the deaths of Muslims in the Iraq/Afghan. Was Brendan victim of a terrorist attack?

Not everybody has ignored it, however. Michelle Malkin wrote about his viscous murder, along with three other victims back in August:

For two bloody months, an armed jihadist serial killer ran loose across the country. At least four innocent men died this spring and summer as acts of “vengeance” on behalf of aggrieved Muslims, the self-confessed murderer has now proclaimed. Have you heard about this horror? Probably not.

The usual suspects who decry hate crimes and gun violence haven’t uttered a peep. Why? Like O.J.’s glove: If the narrative don’t fit, you must acquit. The admitted killer will be cast as just another “lone wolf” whose familiar grievances and bloodthirsty Islamic invocations mean nothing.

I say: Enough with the whitewashing. Meet Ali Muhammad Brown. His homicidal Islamic terror spree took him from coast to coast. The 29-year-old career thug admitted to killing Leroy Henderson in Seattle in April; Ahmed Said and Dwone Anderson-Young in Seattle on June 1; and college student Brendan Tevlin, 19, in Essex County, New Jersey, on June 25. Tevlin was gunned down in his family Jeep on his way home from a friend’s house. Ballistics and other evidence linked all the victims to Muhammad Brown. Police apprehended him last month hiding in an encampment near the Watchung Mountains of West Orange, New Jersey.

While he was on the run, he disguised himself in a Muslim keffiyeh. He carried a notebook with jihadist scribblings and advice on evading detection. I obtained the latest charging documents filed in Washington state, which detail the defiant domestic terrorist’s motives.

Muhammad Brown told investigators that Tevlin’s slaying was a “just kill.” The devout Islamic adherent proclaimed: “My mission is vengeance. For the lives, millions of lives are lost every day.” Echoing jihadist Fort Hood mass killer Nidal Hasan, Muhammad Brown cited Muslim deaths in “Iraq, Syria, (and) Afghanistan” as the catalysts for his one-man Islamic terror campaign. “All these lives are taken every single day by America, by this government. So a life for a life.”

When a detective asked him to clarify whether all four murders were “done for vengeance for the actions of the United States in the Middle East,” Muhammad Brown stated unequivocally: “Yes.” He added that he was “just doing (his) small part.”

To the rest of the MSM that’s just catching up, we quote the great philosopher John McClane: “Welcome to the party, pals.”

Media coverage of this story has been scarce, but it can be found:

But other than that, the MSM seems to be collectively yawning at this story.

@michellemalkin Where's DOJ now? I guess this is allright. Where's Sharpton? ISIS is here and the sooner we admit it, the better we will be

Here’s hoping the story of these four murdered Americans gets the attention it’s due.
