And the Cult of Gun Control wept

Brilliant, and, sadly, true take on how the left is reacting to a mass shooter being stopped dead by armed citizens in Texas

U.S.—The nation’s media outlets announced they were grieving today as an armed citizen stopped a mass shooting.

“We grieve that this tragedy we could have exploited for weeks on end was stopped by a good guy with a gun,” said one teary-eyed MSNBC reporter on the scene. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the shooter.”

“We are absolutely heartbroken and in shock over here,” said one New York Times journalist. “What could have given us weeks and weeks of frothing-at-the-mouth stories about gun control will now have to be suppressed since it does not align with our agenda.”

Noted propagandist Shannon Watts was stricken with outrageous outrage over this brazen act of self=defense

Bearing Arms notes how pissed the Cult is

I’ve already detailed some of the tweets from Shannon Watts and members of Congress bemoaning the fact that armed citizens stopped the attack within seconds, but since that original post there’ve been plenty of others who’ve let it be known that they believe it’s a bad thing that good guys with guns took down that attacker.

Writing at The Guardian, Joan E. Greve seemed a little disappointed that Second Amendment advocates may be on to something.

Every time the US suffers another mass shooting, gun rights activists make an argument that goes something like this: if a good guy with a gun had been there, this terrible tragedy could have been prevented.

That argument has been dismissed by gun control groups as an unrealistic suggestion that diverts attention away from the need to strengthen laws restricting firearm access, but a shooting that occurred over the weekend has now supercharged the “good guy with a gun” defense.

Oh yes, gun control groups, with a deeply held agenda, have dismissed it, so, it cannot be true right? Stop! And, they have found another narrative, that Cam Edwards looks at

Gun control activists are now resorting to a backup argument, which goes something like this: Okay, fine, a guard with a gun stopped a shooter, but the only reason he could do it is because his years in law enforcement gave him superpowers or something close to it. On Twitter, Jon Stokes from Open Source Defense found a gaggle of gun control supporters claiming that no way could the average gun owner have responded in a similar fashion.

Go read that thread it is comical how far these foolish people will delude themselves

Animal weighs in with a very important reminder that self-defense is a natural right 

A would-be mass shooter in Texas attacked a church and killed two parishioners but was stopped by a Good Guy With a Gun, who planted the shooter with a .357 Sig round right through the brain-pan.  That’s a good shot.  Excerpt:

On Sunday we reported that a man entered a church in White Settlement, Texas, and fired on worshippers, before he was shot dead by a member(s) of the church security team.

Two victims, who have not yet been identified, died as the result of gunshot wounds. The assailant was only able to get off two shots before he was taken out by the alert guard, reportedly an ex-FBI agent. (There are some reports that a second member of the church security team fired on the suspect, but it’s not clear at this time if that’s the case.)

Would-be gun-grabbers will ask “how is it better to have more guns in a mass shooting?”  Well, this is why it is better.  Is it better to be helpless in the face of an armed aggressor – or, worse, aggressors?  No.  I’d much rather have at least the chance to defend myself.

But I do take issue with this statement from the church’s minister:  West Freeway Church of Christ Senior Minister Britt Farmer: “I’m thankful our government has allowed us the opportunity to protect ourselves”

Like hell.  The government hasn’t allowed you anything.  Most of the statist fucksticks in the Imperial government would love to strip you of your right to self-defense.  You have that right because you were born.  It’s a natural right – I’m sure Minister Farmer would call it God-given, I call it a natural right, but no matter what you call it, you have it, not because government granted it but because government is prohibited from interfering with it – not that that doesn’t stop elected assholes from trying to do so.

A massive amen to that.

Is this the most ignorant anti gun rant ever?

Tom Knighton lays out the case for a contributor on MSNBS spewing the most inane and uniformed rant against guns ever

However, it seems that automatic weapons are an absolute scourge. At least, that’s the word from an MSNBC personality.

th
I don’t know nothin’ ’bout no facts

MSNBC contributor and former congresswoman Donna Edwards said on Wednesday that shooters are killing thousands of people with “automatic” weapons with “high-capacity ammunition.”

“It’s ridiculous putting the death penalty on the table,” the former Democratic lawmaker said in reference to the Trump administration’s proposal to execute mass shooters faster. “I mean, people who are committing mass shootings aren’t saying, ‘Well, I might get the death penalty so I won’t do it.’ No, they’re getting these automatic rifles, they’re using high capacity ammunition, and they’re killing, they’re mowing down hundreds, thousands of people every single year.”

Edwards made several inaccurate statements in her response.

Well, she either is simply ignorant, on a level we have rarely seen, or she is just lying and piling on the rhetoric as best she can. Either way no responsible news network would allow such idiocies and lies to be spewed on their network. Of course, MSNBS is not a legitimate news source. It is leftist propaganda 24/7.

The fact is that automatic weapons, AKA Machine guns are highly highly restricted, and very, very few people have ever been “gunned down”by them, or, in fact any rifle, even the AR-15, which the left is trying to get banned

According to the FBI, there were only 403 murders carried out with a rifle of any kind in 2017. That includes the 59 people killed in Las Vegas, where we know the weapon was a semi-automatic firearm. So even if every other murder was carried out with a full-auto weapon, we’re still looking at just a few hundred deaths attributable to these kinds of weapons.

For the record, in 2017 there were almost 1,600 people killed with knives, 467 people killed with blunt objects, and 696 people killed with “personal weapons” such as hands or feet.

But, again, this is MSNBS, and facts are simply outdated there in tin foil hat land

1619? More race baiting leftist propaganda for “woke” folks

The left wants us all to think America sucks. They even want us all to think America sucked before there was an America! The NY Times, the ONLY paper you should line your birdcage with, is helping to  spread the Hate America Narrative. Mike McDaniel, who is a national treasure, ain’t having it!

Kurt Schlichter has a quick take on the issue:

Now our grotesque liberal elite, backed up by the Fredocon goobers whose awakening intwokeness happened to perfectly coincide with their utter rejection by us actual conservatives, have decided that our entire history is based upon slavery. The New York Timesis spearheading this latest trash-the-rubes initiative, fresh off its ‘RUSSIA! TREASON! COLLUSION! EMOLUMENTS!’ humiliation. Trying to shame us – many of us literally veterans of the Cold War – with allegations of partying with Putin didn’t work out so great, so why not pivot to morally undermining us for having slaves we didn’t have?

Our elite is such garbage.

Indeed they are.  Take the link and read Kurt’s entire article if you have any doubt about that. The Weekalso weighs inon the “1619 Project”:

Yet that isn’t the point of the 1619 project. The point, once again, is to ‘reframe American history’ so that this appalling history stands at the very center of who we are as a country. Achieving that goal has required the Times to treat history in a highly sensationalistic, reductionistic, and tendentious way, with the cumulative result resembling agitprop more than responsible journalism or scholarship. Putting aside any pretense toward nuance or complexity, the paper has surrendered to the sensibility of left-wing political activists. The result is unpersuasive — and a sad comment on the state of our country’s public life.

Throughout the issue of the NYTM, headlines make, with just slight variations, the same rhetorical move over and over again: “Here is something unpleasant, unjust, or even downright evil about life in the present-day United States. Bet you didn’t realize that slavery is ultimately to blame.” Lack of universal access to health care? High rates of sugar consumption? Callous treatment of incarcerated prisoners? White recording artists “stealing” black music? Harsh labor practices? That’s right — all of it, and far more, follows from slavery.

Go read it all folks.

What the media will not tell you about Omar and Tlaib’s trip to Israel

David French lays out the very ugly truth about who was partnering with the bitter Congresswomen

The most important element of the story is the fact that two American congresswomen shunned a bipartisan congressional delegation to Israel to go on an independent trip to Israel sponsored by vicious anti-Semites. Another important element of the story is that, as of today, the mainstream media have whitewashed Omar and Tlaib’s vile associations.

Writing yesterday, the Washington Post said that “Omar and Tlaib’s trip to Jerusalem and the West Bank was planned by Miftah, a nonprofit organization headed by Palestinian lawmaker and longtime peace negotiator Hanan Ashrawi.” The New York Times described it as an organization “headed by a longtime Palestinian lawmaker.” In its editorial, the New York Times editorial board identified it as a group “that promotes ‘global awareness and knowledge of Palestinian realities.’”

Sounds OK right? Who could oppose this? But what the media tells us is not the whole story

This is a whitewash. Thanks to a Twitter thread from the Washington Examiner’s Seth Mandel — who pointed to multiple additional sources — I started looking at the articles and views published on the Miftah website, and it was like peeling an onion of evil. There was layer upon layer of vile anti-Semitism.

First, the group actually published blood libel, posting an article that accused “the Jews [of using] the blood of Christians in the Jewish Passover.” When pro-Israel bloggers condemned the article, Miftah first claimed that the attacks against the piece were part of a “smear campaign” and minimized the reference to blood libel as merely “briefly addressed.”

The organization later issued a more complete apology, but we’ve barely gotten started with this vile group. It’s also published an American neo-Nazi treatise called “Who Rules America: The Alien Grip on Our News and Entertainment Media Must Be Broken” (archived here).

As Vox’s Jane Coaston explained, “the original source was National Vanguard, a neo-Nazi group founded in 2005 in Charlottesville by members of the National Alliance.” The National Alliance “was for a time the best financed and best organized white nationalist group in America.” And to give you a sense of its ideology, here are two paragraphs from the treatise:

The Jew-controlled entertainment media have taken the lead in persuading a whole generation that homosexuality is a normal and acceptable way of life; that there is nothing at all wrong with White women dating or marrying Black men, or with White men marrying Asian women; that all races are inherently equal in ability and character — except that the character of the White race is suspect because of a history of oppressing other races; and that any effort by Whites at racial self-preservation is reprehensible.

We must oppose the further spreading of this poison among our people, and we must break the power of those who are spreading it. It would be intolerable for such power to be in the hands of any alien minority, with values and interests different from our own. But to permit the Jews, with their 3,000-year history of nation-wrecking, from ancient Egypt to Russia, to hold such power over us is tantamount to race suicide. Indeed, the fact that so many White Americans today are so filled with a sense of racial guilt and self-hatred that they actively seek the death of their own race is a deliberate consequence of Jewish media control.

I look forward to hearing apologists argue that these statements are merely critiques of “Israeli policies.”

Please, go read it all. David French eviscerates the propaganda and lays out the brutal truth about these two anti-Semitic women

Who wants to bet the media will ignore this bit of Black Supremacy?

Here is some more background

Black Community Control of Police, which claims African-Americans have the right to be armed and resist law enforcement, is planning to hold the event on Friday in support of the 36-year-old felon with a long criminal history who was arrested after a more than seven-hour standoff during which six police officers were shot and wounded.

Yes, all law-abiding people do possess a natural right to be armed if they choose. But violent felons? No! Calling for this man to be released? No! Hell no!. Wonder what Don Lemon, who has a victimization fetish would say about this group? Of course, we will never know because NARRATIVES MATTER!
