Do Something! Anything!
Such is the screeching from the left following the terror attack in Orlando. In fact, it took the media all of a day to get all the talking points lined up, leading to quite a bit of confusion as to what lies they should tell and what facts they should conceal:
- The shooter was muslim - he called 911 and pledged his rampage to ISIS. He attended a radicalized mosque. His father ran a cable access talk show where he opined all sorts of anti-American rhetoric. But none of this had anything to do with the shooting according to the media, despite the fact that islam preaches hatred and slaughter of alternative lifestyle individuals. Obama gave a whole speech and never once mentioned "radicalized islam." They have now uncovered stories that the shooter was a frequent patron of the nightclub;
- Bad NRA Bad! Despite the fact that this guy passed a background check, AND even with numerous instances of spousal abuse AND with threats that led to two FBI investigations, the NRA is somehow to blame. Here's a bright idea - since the system instituted by liberals failed at every turn, and we have yet to see an NRA member implicated in a mass casualty event, why not let the NRA run background checks? They seem to know what they're doing.
- Ban something! Quick! The media is in full attack mode, spouting all sorts of lies about "fully automatic" AR-15's being the most dangerous weapon since the A-Bomb and how can America let such a high-powered weapon be bought and sold on the streets! The AR-15 is a notoriously under-powered rifle and crappy for hunting any sort of large game. It's a varmint rifle - things about the size of coyotes mostly. It is generally agreed the ballistics tend to be "unpredictable." It also wasn't used in the Orlando attack - rendering everything the media has been saying for two days now a bunch of knee-jerk reactionary lies. The rifle used was a Sig Sauer MCX carbine, which is about as incompatible with an AR platform as you can get, but why let the truth get in the way of a Big Media Lie?
Here's a handy guide for our media trolls:
Bad laws affect only the law abiding and do nothing to stop criminals. Kind of like Prickwrinkle and Dart emptying the jail and Anita bargaining down sentences to under half of what's written in to the Illinois Compiled Statutes.
