The mainstream media is an unwieldy, biased beast that has been hellbent on the idea of subverting our Second Amendment rights for decades.
Now, with the horrors of Parkland, Florida invigorating their thirst for power, the media has launched a frothing-at-the-mouth tirade of unimaginable proportions. They are propping up well-rehearsed students such as David Hogg, in an attempt to appeal emotionally to the youth of America. This is all simply for the sake of grooming future democratic voters – make no mistake about that.
CNN’s laundry list of unfounded nonsense has been emboldened by these incidents as well, as they continues to misquote statistics for the sake of vilifying firearms.
“The latest in the ‘news’ channel’s mathematical gymnastics has America experiencing seventeen school shootings so far in the year.
“To reach 17, CNN explained that they counted ‘gang violence,’ ‘domestic violence,’ and an ‘accidental discharge’s a firearm on school grounds, as school shootings. This criteria allowed them to count incidents like the alleged March 2 murder of two parents by their son at Central Michigan University as a school shooting, even though the parents were not students at the university and no one, other than the parents, was targeted or injured.
“It also allowed CNN to count the March 13 accidental discharge of a firearm in a Seaside, California, classroom as a school shooting. KSBW reported that a reserve police officer, who is also a teacher, accidentally discharged a firearm and a male student received ‘moderate injuries’ from bullet fragments that ‘ricocheted off the ceiling.’
“Other similar incidents were counted as school shootings by CNN as well, making actual school shootings like the February 14 Parkland Florida shooting or the March 20 Great Mills High School shooting seem legion.”
Of course, there is little reason to believe that these are simple mistakes. An organization such as CNN can only operate this slovenly purposefully, otherwise their legal teams would completely decimate these claims before going to air.
No, this is intended to mislead. It is intended to mold the millennial mind. It is brainwashing of the highest order.
And, most importantly, it certainly isn’t news.
