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.

WATCH: College Students Not Cheering for Team USA in Olympics Because America is Evil

A recent video of students at the University of South Florida found that many of them aren’t rooting for Team USA.

A recent video of students at the University of South Florida found that many of them aren’t rooting for Team USA at the Olympics simply because they hate America. This is what our schools are teaching our kids to think, folks. From the lowest to the highest grades, our system of miseducation is teaching kids that America is evil and not worth supporting. Some of these woke, anti-American students spoke to Campus Reform ahead of the opening ceremony of the Wokeyo Olympics. And they said they won’t be watching because America isn’t worth rooting for. These privileged, hate-filled leftists said that they aren’t rooting for America: “I’m not going to be rooting for any team just because it’s some country that I live in…because the truth is, patriotism shouldn’t be that strong,” one student said. Another student said, “if you would’ve asked me in the last administration, maybe not.” Students also told Jacobson that they believed athletes should be able to protest during the Olympic Games and that U.S. athletes have no duty to represent the country in a positive light. One student said, “they have a duty to represent their country athletically, but they don’t have any obligation to represent it good or bad.” “I’m not proud to live in a country where I can’t even go down in my own neighborhood [without seeing] people putting up their Blue Lives Matter flags telling me that my life doesn’t matter,” another student said. “Given what’s been going on with this country and how divided our politics have been, there’s not really a reason to stand for one within the country, anyways,” a student exclaimed.

Wokesters Now Say You are a Racist if You Fear Pit Bull Dogs

In today’s episode of “You Stinkin’ Racist,” woke fanatics are now saying you are a racist if you fear the dangerous pit bull dog. The leftist activists at the Animal Farm Foundation recently declared that you are a racist if you fear pit bulls because the pit bull is “the black man’s dog” since it is popular with blacks. The non-profit claims that it is “dedicated to securing equal treatment and opportunity for pit bull dogs and their owners,” and aims to fight against “exclusionary dog breed restrictions in the housing insurance industry.” In other words, the group wants to smooth the way for pit bulls and their owners. The group also relies heavily on a “study” by Harvard Law School’s Ann Linder who wrote a paper titled “The Black Man’s Dog: The Social Context of Breed Specific Legislation.” Linder says that the pit bull has been “gang violence by urban youths, as well as the hip-hop music scene.” However, the pit bull has a bad reputation because it is a dangerous animal. Campus Reform pointed out that pit bulls represent about 6.5% of all dogs in the United States, yet the breed was responsible for 66% of total fatal dog attacks between 2005 and 2017. Oh, but it’s all about racism, you see. You don’t fear pit bulls because the breed is powerful and dangerous. No, you fear pit bulls because you are a racist. The left is never happy unless it is re-fashion reality to its fantasy world. Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
