Dishonesty in the mainstream media is diverting the gun-control debate away from the obvious solution. Once the facts have been examined, the solution is simple and obvious, but the media is avoiding the answer. The media want everyone to believe that all gun crime committed in this country is perpetrated by a conservative, Christian, Tea Party Patriot, NRA member, or Republican. Of course, nothing could be further from the truth. If you look at the most heinous gun crimes committed most recently in our country—those that have renewed the assault on the second amendment and given vigor to the gun confiscation debate—you see that the crimes were committed by mentally-impaired people who, as it turns out, are liberals, progressives, or big Democratic supporters.
A case in point is the most recent nut-job to commit a gun crime: Chris Dorner, a former LA-police officer who is on a murder rampage in Los Angeles and Southern California. In his manifesto Dorner touts Democrats and their leftwing agenda. He defends Barack Obama and most of his policies, Joe Biden’s and the gun-control working group for the Assault Weapons Ban (AWB), and Dianne Feinstein for wanting to re-institute the AWB. He also praises Bill Clinton, endorses Hillary Clinton for president in 2016, and endorses moderate New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. Dorner also praises the liberal talking heads, Chris Matthews, Joe Scarborough, Pat Harvey, Brian Williams, Soledad Obrien, Wolf Blitzer, Meredith Viera, Tavis Smiley, and Anderson Cooper for their great work, while saying some vile things about NRA president Wayne LaPierre. I find it interesting that the politics of personal destruction is considered neither personal nor destructive if used by a Liberal.
Recently convicted Family Research Council HQ shooter, Floyd Lee Corkins, was a hard-core left winger and gay activist who was angry at Chic Fil’a because its CEO supports traditional marriage. Corkins was egged on by the liberal Southern Poverty Law Center’s hate rhetoric which had listed FRC as a hate group because of their conservative stance. [Note: SPLC is a close ally of President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder]
Adam Lanza, known for the recent premeditated murders at Sandy Hook Elementary School, was a registered Democrat whose facebook rants showed he despised Christians. James Holmes, known for the premeditated murders at the Century Theater in Aurora, Colorado was a progressive liberal, registered Democrat, and an Occupy Wall Street participant, who had been an Obama campaign worker.
Loughner, who shot Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and killed a conservative Federal Judge, is described as a far left liberal with a love of socialist ideology.
Nidal Malik Hasan who is a militant Islamist and registered Democrat was responsible for the premeditated Fort Hood murders. Cho Seung-Hui, a registered Democrat, was responsible for the premeditated VA Tech murders.
The list could go on to include many other Liberals who have committed unthinkable crimes with guns. Two of the biggest crimes—arguably treasonous crimes—in the last four years were the illegal gun-running operations by Eric Holder and Barak Obama secretly authorizing a one-billion dollar gun-running operation to supply Libyan rebels. The latter operation resulted in those weapons being turned against our ambassador in Benghazi. But, of course, Obama being a liberal Democrat, the media refuses to pursue these crimes since treason is not a popular topic when democrats are in power.
Liberals might try to deny the political affiliations of the above mentioned criminals, but the facts are readily available to anyone willing to do the research. However, the most telling evidence that they are all left wingers, liberals, progressives, Democrats, and/or Occupiers is the fact that the mainstream media never mentions their political party, religious beliefs, or affiliations. Of course, if any of these mentally-disturbed criminals were Conservative, Christian, Tea Party Patriots, NRA, or Republican the coverage would never stop.
Even though the Mainstream media has irresponsibly tried to tie these crimes to conservative groups, it is not law-abiding citizens, Republicans, Conservatives, Christians, Tea Party Patriots,or NRA members committing these horrible crimes. This fact makes the solution simple and obvious. If we want to see gun violence stop, don’t allow liberals to purchase or handle firearms.
