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

Published

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.

MUST SEE: Barr Shreds Reporter In Half When She Implies He’s ‘Covering’ For Trump [Video]

Annnnnnd AG Bill Barr just won the internet…

Bill Barr has turned out to be everything President Trump wanted in an attorney general – and more. Former AG Jeff Sessions might’ve faired more favorably in 45’s eyes had he not recused himself from the Mueller investigation, but all of that is in the past. During his Thursday morning address to the media regarding the Mueller report, Barr shut down a reporter who implied he was “covering” for Trump. It was a total boss move. WATCH: https://twitter.com/dcexaminer/status/1118877097244733440?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1118877097244733440&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Filovemyfreedom.org%2Fwatch-ag-barr-rips-reporter-to-her-face-when-she-implies-hes-covering-for-trump%2F Barr consulted with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and both concluded there was zero evidence against Trump.

Adam Schiff (CA) is not thrilled with Barr. From Fox News: Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., slammed Attorney General Bill Barr on Thursday, stopping just short of asking for his resignation after saying the redacted Mueller report showed Barr misled the American people with his summary report last month. The House Intelligence Committee chairman held a news conference just hours after the nearly 400-page redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report was released to the public. Schiff claimed Barr “did a great disservice to the county by misrepresenting significant parts of the Mueller report, by attempting to put a positive spin for the president on the special counsel’s findings” last month. He added, “On the issue of obstruction of justice, the report outlines multiple attempts by the president to mislead the country, to interfere with the investigation, to make false statements to the American people and to urge others to lie to the American people… that these actions had a material impact on the investigation.” Schiff noted, “If the special counsel, as he made clear, had found evidence exonerating the president, he would have said so. He did not. He left that issue to the Congress of the…

GAME ON: Tlaib to Introduce Impeachment Resolution, & Ocasio-Cortez Is EAGER to Sign

GET READY, PEOPLE!

Thursday was a bad one for Democrats. Their deepest fears were confirmed. Conservatives had known from the jump that Trump’s 2016 team never colluded with Russia to defeat Hillary Clinton, but the left continued to harp away despite never finding a single concrete fact. When Attorney General Bill Barr took to the podium to let the nation know exactly what Special Counsel Robert Mueller “found,” the MSM went ballistic. Heck, freshman Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib (MI) even moved to introduced articles of impeachment. On what grounds? None, really. And yet, fellow rookie lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) is eager to sign Tlaib’s resolution. She tweeted: Mueller’s report is clear in pointing to Congress’ responsibility in investigating obstruction of justice by the President. It is our job as outlined in Article 1, Sec 2, Clause 5 of the US Constitution. As such, I’ll be signing onto @RashidaTlaib’s impeachment resolution. https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1118989661555372033?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1118989661555372033&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F04%2Frep-alexandria-ocasio-cortez-says-she-will-sign-rep-rashida-tlaibs-impeachment-resolution%2F The Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro had eight takeaways from AG Barr’s Thursday presser. Here are two of them… 1. The Trump-Russia Collusion Claims Were Farcically Overblown. While there were certainly members of the Trump team who acted suspiciously – including Trump, who continued to lie to the American public that no work was occurring on the Trump Tower Moscow deal during the 2016 campaign – the claims that Trump was a nefarious Russian agent were comically exaggerated. The Mueller report itself makes this clear: Although the investigation established that the Russian government perceived it would benefit from a Trump presidency and worked to secure that outcome, and that the Campaign expected it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts, the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities. 2. The Original Suspicions Regarding The…
