On Monday, a horrific mass shooting in Boulder, Colorado supermarket stunned Americans, who were seeking for answers about how such a terribly atrocity could occur.
While the media speculated about who must have killed ten innocent people, some people were led to believe it must be a “white supremacist.” Now we have the news that this is highly unlikely.
A new report suggests that the shooter may have been an ISIS supporter, per OANN’s Jack Posobiec.

“Police have identified the suspect in the Boulder, Colo., shooting as Ahmad Alissa,” the New York Daily News reported. “The 21-year-old is charged with 10 counts of murder in the first degree in connection with the Monday afternoon shooting at the King Sooper supermarket, police said Tuesday at a press conference.”
While the news media sprang into action to call for gun control once again after the mass shooting, the Boulder incident may once again prove that the anti-terrorism efforts of the Democratic Party are once again misguided. After relatively few Islamic terror incidents under the Trump administration, it appears that the phenomenon could spring back as the Biden FBI searches under every rock for “white supremacists” and “right-wing terrorists.”
The details of the King Soopers supermarket are terrifying to recount.
“The gunman opened fire at the King Soopers supermarket in Boulder between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. local time Monday,” the Daily News report continued. “Officer Eric Talley, 51, of the Boulder Police Department, who was responding to the shooting, was among the 10 people killed. The suspect was injured and taken into custody.”
“I wish I could stand here and promise that pain will heal quickly,” Colorado Gov. Jared Polis said during a Tuesday press conference. “But it won’t… At times like this, it’s hard to see the light that shines through the darkness.”
“Not only did we lose ten lives, this is real horror and terror,” he added.
On Monday night, Boulder Police Chief Maris Herold gave an update, but had not yet released the name of the suspect.
“The first thing I want to say is I want to say our hearts of this community go out to the victims of this horrific incident,” Herold said. “We know of ten fatalities at the scene, including one of our Boulder P.D. officer’s by the name of Eric Talley, who’s been on the Boulder police department since 2010. He served in numerous roles supporting the Boulder Police Department and the community of Boulder.”
“And I have to tell you, the heroic action of this officer when he responded to the scene, at 14:30 hours the Boulder Police Department began receiving phone calls of shots fired in the area and phone call about a possible person with a patrol rifle,” he continued.
“Officer Talley responded to the scene, was the first at the scene and he was fatally shot. I also want to commend the heroic actions of the officers responding not only from Boulder P.D., but from across the county and other parts of the region,” Chief Herold added. “Police officer’s actions fell nothing short of being heroic. I also want to thank the men and women who responded, including state, local and federal authorities. Obviously this is a very complex investigation that’ll take no less than five days to complete.”
It is a complex investigation and it is important to note that breaking news is always a fluid situation. But it is clear already that the facts as we know them are not fitting the prevailing mainstream media narratives.
