The Big Lie technique.

The Washington Post ran a story making the off-hand comment that white males were over-represented when it came to committing mass murders. Broad declaratory statements like that always set off my BS meter, particularly when one of the "white males" mentioned in the article was the Middle-eastern Muslim Fort Hood shooter.

I didn't get around to doing the research, but Bob Owens did and calls BS on the story.

I guess there is no reason why white males couldn't represent a disproportionate percentage of mass murderers, but at this point I  am just given to start with the assumption that stories in the liberal media that fit the liberal narrative are more likely to be lies than not.

Sad.

Using muslims as subjects when tallying mass murder statistics will always take the group over the top...

This trend against White males has been going on for some time. Interesting how it seems to be becoming part of the mindset as to mass murderers in some minds while we have a "different profile" in office. As to its accuracy, it is anyone's guess. I think it is not as accurate in one way or another as they may want it to seem ...and as Lauran states...
