He was famous once, but the deciders had to shove him into the Memory Hole
What interests me is the initial media reaction to his death. Before they even knew it was murder, the MSM was willing to run with the idea that his death was somehow the responsibility of Glenn Beck, Michelle Bachman, the Tea Party, and a host of other right-wing boogeymen. (Just as they did with the shooting of Gabby Giffords and still do with the OKC bombing).
When will the Left retract the Kentucky census worker case smear?

No major media figure took to cameras to intone that activism was vital to American life and that conservatives were peaceful citizens who loved America and abhorred violence.
Contrast that with the MSM reaction to Islamic terrorism from 9-11 to Ft. Hood to San Bernardino.
In the hive mind of the MSM, conservatives are responsible for murders that never happened; they deserve the blame because of their “violent” rhetoric. (The template dates back to 1963 when the Left blamed the rightwing atmosphere of Dallas after a communist assassinated JFK).
The same reasoning that the media dubs “Islamaphobic” after a terrorist attack, is the MSM’s go-to narrative when they can tarnish the Right.
