Dept. of Education Releases Report Documenting Number of School Shootings. NPR Says There’s Just One Problem…

Published

on

A new report released by the Department of Education has stated that there were 235 school-related shootings in the U.S. during the 2015-2016 school year, but NPR was only able to actually confirm less than five percent of these incidents.

In other words, the organization tasked with educating children — a horrifically bad idea in and of itself — is drinking the liberal Kool-Aid and conflating the numbers to help the anti-gun agenda of progressives.

Of the 235 school-related shooting incidents, NPR only confirmed 11 of them. It reported 161 schools or school districts told NPR no shootings had occurred, four were miscategorized, and 59 could not be either confirmed or unconfirmed by NPR.

The huge discrepancy calls into question the reliability of data disseminated by the government on the pressing issue of school safety.

The Department of Education told NPR it relied on school districts to give accurate information in its annual Civil Rights Data Collection. It asked for the 2015-16 school year, “Has there been at least one incident at your school that involved a shooting (regardless of whether anyone was hurt)?” It published the eye-popping number—”nearly 240 schools (0.2 percent of all schools)” — this spring.

It was nowhere close to the left-wing advocacy group Everytown for Gun Safety’s data on the question, which listed 29 shootings at K-12 schools during the same period. Only seven schools appeared on both the government’s and Everytown’s lists:

A separate investigation by the ACLU of Southern California also was able to confirm fewer than a dozen of the incidents in the government’s report, while 59 percent were confirmed errors.

One of the biggest reasons for the discrepancy in the Civil Rights Data Collection number was the Cleveland Metropolitan School District listing 37 incidents in its district alone for that year. Roseann Canfora, the district’s chief communications officer, told NPR that 37 schools had in fact reported incidents involving “possession of a knife or a firearm,” the previous question on the form. The district slotted the number in the wrong line in the survey.

This whole situation sheds light on a serious problem. When you have a biased organization that is infiltrated by left-wing zealots like the Department of Education is, you have to be weary of any data that comes out without interpreting it according to the definition of terms being used by said individuals.

The left redefines things all of the time as a means of moving the goal posts, meaning they know the actual facts don’t support their ideas or agenda, so they create “facts” of their own. It’s how they work.

If there’s ever been a time to consider yanking kids out of public schools, now is it.

Bloomberg Buys Last-Minute Political Ads On Behalf Of Joe Biden In Texas And Ohio

Published

on

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who just so happened to run the country’s most expensive failed presidential campaign in history, is now apparently blowing through a wad of cash in a last-minute attempt to buy some political ads on behalf of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. The ads have been purchased in key states that are known strongholds for Republicans, Ohio and Texas. Via Daily Wire: The last-minute advertising amounts to $15 million – a fraction of what Bloomberg is spending in Florida to support Biden – and represents internal polling suggesting President Donald Trump is vulnerable in the two states, The New York Times reported. “Howard Wolfson, one of Mr. Bloomberg’s closest aides, said the former mayor had recently asked his team to run a round of polls to see whether Mr. Trump had unexpected vulnerabilities that could be exploited in the campaign’s closing weeks. Up to this point, Mr. Bloomberg’s general-election activities have focused on Florida, where he has pledged to spend $100 million supporting Mr. Biden,” the outlet reported. “The Bloomberg team conducted polling in a number of states over the weekend and came away convinced that Texas and Ohio represented its best targets — narrowly divided electoral prizes where the war for television airtime is not already cluttered with heavy advertising on either side. The team presented Mr. Bloomberg with the numbers on Monday morning and he gave the go-ahead.” “We believe that Florida will go down to the wire, and we were looking for additional opportunities to expand the map,” Wolfson told the outlet. “Texas and Ohio present the best opportunities to do that, in our view.” The big focus of the campaign ads being put out by Bloomberg will be the president’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. The ads running in Texas will…

Well, it seems that we’re about to hit another round of rioting and looting by the Black Lives Matter movement — don’t worry folks, it’s all just tools to fight against oppression — this time taking place in the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia. A 27-year-old black man was shot and killed during an altercation with police officers earlier in the day, which is the latest inspiration cited by these angry “protesters” for the justification for their lawlessness. via Fox News: Walter Wallace, who was allegedly holding a knife, was fatally shot while two police officers were responding to a complaint about a man with a weapon in Cobbs Creek, according to the Associated Press. He “advanced toward” the officers, who then fired “several times,” the outlet reported. Wallace was hit in both the shoulder and chest, then taken in a police vehicle to a hospital, where he died. https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1320953991170125826 Following Wallace’s death, which was recorded and posted on social media, hundreds of people — some armed with bricks — protested in the 52nd Street commercial district, and the demonstration quickly turned violent. Police cars and dumpsters were set ablaze and NBC10 Philadelphia reported that at least 30 police officers were hurt. A 56-year-old sergeant was hit by a truck and sent to the hospital with a broken leg and other injuries. Some of the stores that were hit with looting included several Rite Aid pharmacies, a restaurant, and some clothing and shoe shops. Two ATM machines have also been reported to have been smashed. A total of 30 people were arrested during the incident. Folks, if Joe Biden is elected president and the left takes over Congress, this scene right here will become common place. How do I know that? Because the left will do nothing to stop the rioting and looting…
