Anti-Gun Parkland Activist Spews Lies, Insults NRA While CNN Does Nothing

This just further serves to expose the obvious liberal bias of CNN as a news organization

Radical left-wing anti-gun activist Cameron Kasky appeared on CNN’s “New Day” program over the weekend where he took a few moments to spew forth some inaccurate information peppered with a few nasty insults for NRA members and President Trump.

Kaskey’s segment was primarily focused on getting the activist’s take on the president’s speech at the NRA convention in Dallas.

As has become standard practice for CNN, they allowed Kasky to make several false statements without even bothering to fact check what was being stated or to offer any sort of challenge or push back to his claims.

This just further serves to expose the obvious liberal bias of CNN as a news organization and validates President Trump’s and the vast majority of American citizens’ distrust of the network.

“If you could sit down with the president this morning, what would you say to him?” co-host Paul asked Kasky.

“I don’t necessarily know,” Cameron Kasky “You see, he’s a professional liar who will say anything to appease whatever crowd he’s at.”

Kasky continued by comparing NRA members to people who participate in Comic-Con, a clear insult given the context of Kasky’s statement. Kasky also claimed, without evidence, that the NRA gives out free memberships to people “with the purchase of a handgun.”

“But the average members of the NRA, they don’t agree with Trump’s stance on guns,” Kasky misleadingly said. “This is all Trump just trying to appeal to a crowd of people who really, really, really like weapons that shoot bullets fast.”

When asked for his thoughts on Trump’s comment about banning trucks and vans due to vehicle attacks, Kasky called it “childish garbage.”

Kasky has a well earned reputation for spreading misinformation, and that’s precisely what he did here on several points, yet he went completely unchallenged, allowing this faulty information to hit the masses.

First off, his claim that the majority of NRA members disagree with Trump on guns is completely false. The whole point of Kasky’s statement here was to make Trump look like some sort of extremist.

However, not long after the Parkland shooting, the president made several suggestions concerning gun control that actually frightened some Second Amendment activists, particularly his comment about confiscating guns without due process, which is a violation of the Constitution.

Trump is not an extremist on guns. Much of Kasky’s argument here is likely coming from the fact that two-thirds of NRA members support background checks for purchasing guns, which Trump also supports.

However, more than half of NRA members have made it clear they do not support a universal gun registry, which would be necessary for universal background checks.

Kasky went on to mention that his dad owns a few guns, but not the kind that can “mow down 17 people in six minutes,” once again perpetuating the myth that AR-15s are automatic weapons.

Automatic weapons are machine guns. These weapons have been banned for a long, long time in the United States. The AR-15 is a semi-automatic, just like the kind of handguns Kasky’s pop owns, which makes them just as deadly as an “assault rifle.”

What’s really aggravating here is that CNN didn’t bother to do their job to uphold journalistic integrity and actually check to see if what Kasky said was accurate or true. His statements fit their narrative, so they just allowed it to go forward, regardless of accuracy.

Perhaps one day journalists will make a return to objectivity and take their job to inform the public of facts seriously.

Minnesota is once again on fire, this time due to the death of Daunte Wright at the hands of now-former police officer Kim Potter. Potter pulled her gun on Wright, but meant to fire her taser. Is the MSM asking why Potter was forced to pull out a weapon in the first place? Meaning, what actions did Wright take that made Potter act? Wright couldn’t have been resisting arrest, right? He was completely compliant…right!?? It’s all a moot point, now. And the Gopher State will continue to burn. From Fox News: Daunte Wright, the 20-year-old Black man shot by a police officer in a Minneapolis suburb Sunday afternoon, had an open warrant for his arrest related to an aggravated armed robbery attempt when he was killed, according to court records. Wright and another man, identified as Emajay Maurice Driver, a high school acquaintance, had both been charged with first-degree aggravated robbery in a December 2019 incident in Osseso, Minnesota, Hennepin County District Court documents obtained by Fox News show. Here’s a little bit more, but CLICK THE Fox News LINK ABOVE TO READ THE WHOLE STORY!! JUST DO IT! Around 2:30 a.m., two women at the home told Wright and Driver they needed to leave, but the two men said they did not have a ride, the documents say. The women reportedly allowed Wright and Driver to spend the night. In the morning, one of the two women left the apartment to get $820 in cash to pay the other for rent. After paying the rent, she left for work. […] Wright then allegedly choked the woman while trying to pull the cash out from under her bra, where she had tucked it away. https://twitter.com/_mattmckinney/status/1382362210702290952?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1382362210702290952%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-brooklyn-center-police-officer-to-be-charged-with-2nd-degree-manslaughter%2F BLM and lefties are always, always, always defending criminals.

Dem-Controlled House Unveils ‘Court Packing’ Legislation, Want 13 Justices on SCOTUS

Just 13? Why not 19? Better yet, 89!!! SMH.

All politicians are crooked. That isn’t exactly a secret. But at least Republicans actually love their country. That’s a huge difference. Not great, but it’s something. These Democrats, though, only care about one thing. They crave it, in fact. Complete control. From Fox News: Democratic lawmakers are set to unveil legislation Thursday to expand the number of justices on the Supreme Court. More from The Intercept: The bill would add four seats to the high court, bringing the total to 13 from the current nine. The bill is led by House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler, Subcommittee chair Hank Johnson, and freshman Rep. Mondaire Jones. In the Senate, the bill is being championed by Ed Markey of Massachusetts. The number of justices on the Court, which is set by Congress, has fluctuated throughout the course of the nation’s history, reaching as many as ten seats before settling on nine in 1869. In 2016, Sen. Ted Cruz suggested that, if Hillary Clinton were elected, the Republican Senate should keep Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat empty, effectively bringing the number of justices down to eight. Republicans currently hold six seats, while Democrats hold just three. Republicans were able to solidify control of the Court under former President Donald Trump, after first refusing to advance Merrick Garland’s nomination under former President Barack Obama, and then confirming Justice Neil Gorsuch after Trump’s election. Then, after Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg died in September 2020, Republicans threw out the procedures they had previously embraced and confirmed Justice Amy Coney Barrett in a matter of weeks. By expanding SCOTUS under a radically far-left president, socialists liberals will be able to ensure they get their way on every issue – all. the. time. That is, of course, GOD-willing, until a Republican gets back into the White House. If that…
