Jimmy Kimmel Gets Taken to the Woodshed on Twitter, Here’s The Reason Why

This is what happens when you quote CNN.

Almost instantaneously after the shooting at Santa Fe High School left 10 people dead, celebrities and anti-gun activists started calling for strict gun control measures, a strategy that only hurts law abiding citizens and does little to prevent these horrific incidents.

One of the leading voices in the call to destroy the Second Amendment is late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel who jumped on Twitter and started demanding gun control, however, he made a huge mistake by relying on information and statistics from the world’s worst news organization: CNN.

CNN is notorious for never allowing a set of facts to get in the way of its agenda, something that should make the usage of information from the network suspect, and in Kimmel’s case, it’s just plain wrong.

“The US has had 57 times as many school shootings as the other major industrialized nations combined,” Kimmel tweeted, citing a CNN report.

Here are a few of PolitiFacts’ fact-checks on some of the inflated numbers pushed by CNN and gun control groups like Everytown for Gun Safety:

Mostly False: 18 U.S. school shootings so far in 2018 and 18 in rest of the world over past 20 years

14 school shootings since 2010 in Florida? Not really

A number of followers on Twitter made sure to take a few moments of time to point out to Kimmel that his statistics have already been proven wrong:

As you can see, CNN has been padding their numbers for quite some time, hoping that by doing so it will help them push an agenda on the American people with the goal in mind of convincing them to protest against their own constitutional rights.

The ultimate goal with such a strategy is to convince people that things are super bad and the only way to stop the situation is by placing severe limitations on the Second Amendment, and ultimately, over time, getting rid of it.

Kimmel is serving as an ignorant mouthpiece for the strategy, most likely not even aware that’s what’s happening. This is why it’s critical to do your own research and to look on both sides of an issue before making up your mind.

You cannot count on accurate information from celebrities and actors.

Disney Slaps ‘Peter Pan,’ ‘Dumbo,’ Other Classic Films With New Content Warnings

Published

on

Disney has decided to continue walking down the “woke” path, attempting to stay relevant so they can milk the rest of humanity for all the dollars possible by tossing some disclaimers on a number of classic films warning that some scenes in the movies contain “negative depictions” and “mistreatment of people or cultures.” Good grief. If Disney didn’t own two-thirds of the world at this point, it would become obvious that making this choice to “go woke” would result in the company “going broke,” but since they do seem to have their hand in everything, nothing is going to come of them doing this. via Daily Wire: “These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now. Rather than remove this content, we want to acknowledge its harmful impact, learn from it and spark conversation to create a more inclusive future together,” says the 12-second disclaimer, which cannot be skipped. The films include “Dumbo” from 1941, “Peter Pan” from 1953, “Swiss Family Robinson” from 1960, and “The Aristocats” from 1970. The disclaimer also directs viewers to a website titled “Stories Matter,” which says, “Because happily ever after doesn’t just happen.” “As part of our ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion, we are in the process of reviewing our library and adding advisories to content that includes negative depictions or mistreatment of people or cultures,” the site says. “We can’t change the past, but we can acknowledge it, learn from it and move forward together to create a tomorrow that today can only dream of.” Disney went on to explain the reason for slapping the warnings on the content: Dumbo “The crows and musical number pay homage to racist minstrel shows, where white performers with blackened faces and tattered clothing imitated and ridiculed enslaved Africans on Southern plantations. The leader of the…

Top Astrophysicist Says Asteroid Could Smash Into Earth Day Before Election

Published

So far in the year 2020 we’ve had a pandemic featuring an age discriminating virus, race riots, the government admitting UFOs are real, murder hornets, and the wackiest presidential race of all time. Surely there’s nothing else this year could throw at us, right? Wrong. Apparently, according to astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, there’s a strong possiblity an asteroid is going to smash into the earth the day before the election. Who had asteroid on their 2020 Bingo card? via Fox News: An asteroid with a diameter the size of a refrigerator could strike the Earth the day before the November election, according to celebrity scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson — but it’s not large enough to do any serious damage. The famed astrophysicist said the space rock, known as 2018VP1, is hurtling towards Earth at a speed of 25,000 miles per hour and may clip the planet on Nov. 2. “It may buzz-cut Earth on Nov. 2, the day before the Presidential Election,” he wrote on Instagram. But he added that the flying object is nothing to lose sleep over since “it’s not big enough to cause harm.”⠀⠀⠀ NASA already identified the asteroid that is rocketing toward earth, but stated the chances of it actually hitting the earth are currently less than one percent. “It currently has a 0.41% chance of entering our planet’s atmosphere, but if it did, it would disintegrate due to its extremely small size,” the organization stated. While this rock may not hit earth, or even if it does, it might now do much in the way of damage, but I’ve seen enough scary movies to know that when stuff like this happens, strange occurrences follow. So, sure, you may not have to worry about the asteroid, but if it passes by our planet and you suddenly…
