The liberal media could go off on their anticipated narrative about the Pentagon leaker, but The New York Times has already somewhat undercut the scheme, though the damning paragraph was buried deep in their piece about the suspect.
Spencer wrote about the arrest and subsequent press conferences from Attorney General Merrick Garland and Air Force Brigadier Gen. Pat Ryder about the breach. The alleged leaker is a 21-year-old Air National Guardsman, Jack Douglas Teixeira, a Massachusetts resident.
The initial Times piece, which has been scrubbed, mentioned Mr. Teixeira’s involvement in an online gaming chat group called Thug Shaker Central, which allegedly posted content about their affinity for firearms, other video games, and racist memes. There’s the fuse: white guy, love of guns, and racist memes. The right-wing extremism seeds were planted and spread by other outlets that cited the initial reporting.
BBC mentioned the quote about Mr. Teixeira possibly being anti-war [emphasis mine]:
One of the initial stories about Mr. Teixeira and his online pals has been scrubbed. The latest article looks very different from what was originally reported via the WayBack machine. It's a definite reshuffle, but was this an aborted salvo aimed at starting a bushfire when some things didn't line up regarding the phantom right-wing extremist threat within the military? It's a line that the media harped about post-Janaury 6. Who knows. But you can see how the antiwar element might cause the extremist white guy narrative to hit the curb, which is probably why the excerpts in the blockquote above were relegated to the international section of the site.
