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.

Cable News Blasted for Conjuring Controversy in Columbus Police Shooting

This is just dirty.

The sad truth of the matter, when it comes to the mainstream media, is that they are more successful when we are more emotional. It’s a dirty trick of human biology:  The chemicals in our brain that allow us to feel joy, sorrow, humor, and fury are just similar enough to one another that we become addicted to them, one and all.  Feeling something stimulates our self-awareness, and we learn to crave it. So, when you tune into CNN and what they are saying angers you, they’re planting small hooks in your noggin, reeling you in to watch the commercials that pay all of their salaries. If you watch Fox, however, and you find yourself enthusiastically cheering after a host or guest has a mic drop moment, your brain again finds what it’s looking for, and here you are seeing your 14th Progressive commercial of the day. All of the big networks know this and actively participate in this salacious shamanism, and sometimes they cross the line. Liberal outlets HuffPost and AJ+ omitted key details or pushed false narratives in their videos about the fatal police shooting of a Black teenager in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday. HuffPost failed to note the woman who was shot, Ma’Khia Bryant, pushed another female to the ground and lunged at another with a knife when police arrived at the scene. The misleading HuffPo video was accompanied by the following text, which appeared to paint the police as the villain. “Black girl killed by police,” the text read. “Police in Columbus, OH shot & killed a Black teen around the same time the verdict was read in the Derek Chauvin trial. Body-camera footage showed an officer firing several times at Ma’Khia Bryant before she collapsed to the ground. The video also showed a knife falling next to the…

Derek Chauvin on Suicide Watch, Away From General Population

Chauvin’s incarceration will certainly not be a pleasant one once he leaves isolation.

There is little doubt that Derek Chauvin is going to have a bad time in jail.  The former police officer was just convicted on several charges stemming from his involvement in the death of George Floyd, with one those charges being murder in the 3rd degree. Chauvin’s sentence won’t be known for some time, likely about 8 weeks, so there’s no telling just where he’ll wind up serving his time.  But ex-cops don’t fare all that well in certain prisons, and there will almost certainly be an incentive to tangle with the guy while he’s on the inside. For the time being, however, Chauvin is being kept separate from the general population, out of fear for his safety. Derek Chauvin has been pictured in his first mugshot taken at the maximum security prison in Minnesota where he’s on suicide watch after being found guilty on all three counts of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd. The Minnesota Department of Corrections released the new booking photo on Wednesday morning as Chauvin woke up from his first night at MCF-Oak Park Heights. The 45-year-old dressed in an orange jumpsuit appeared tired and puffy-eyed with a frown and his hair in disarray. The mugshot was soon making the rounds online. https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1384867831792209921?s=20 Chauvin is expected to file an appeal in the coming weeks, possibly on the grounds that he could not have possibly received a fair trial with the statements being made in public by politicians such as Maxine Waters of California.
