Man Walks Into Trump Resort and Opens Fire, But It’s What He Was Yelling That’s Weird

Whoa. This is a strange incident.

Early on Friday morning, law enforcement officers responded to a call from Trump National Doral Resort where a man entered the premises and opened fire. The police managed to subdue the shooter by wounding him after he got off a few shots of his own inside the lobby.

Authorities stated the man brought an American flag and was “yelling and spewing some information about President Trump.”

It’s not yet been revealed, as of this writing, whether this was anti-Trump rhetoric or not, but in the grand scheme of things, it seems this man had some serious mental health issues of some sort.

The incident occurred around 1:30 a.m. at Trump National Doral golf and spa resort. A few hours later, Miami-Dade Police Director Juan Perez revealed details of the incident in a press conference outside the resort.

“These officers did not hesitate for one second to engage this individual who was actively shooting in the lobby of the hotel,” said Perez, the Sun Sentinel reports.

“He had an American flag that he did drape over the counter, that all will be part of the investigation. We’re going to take it from there and see what his real motives are,” he said. Authorities have not yet determined if it was an act of terrorism, he added.

One Doral police officer was injured in the incident, though not from gun fire; officials say he appears to have broken his wrist.

A local media outlet gave a brief description of the suspect saying he was “balding and with a close-cropped beard,” and that he was able to sit up on a gurney while being transported to Kendall Regional Medical Center.

Eric Trump later responded to the incident on Twitter.

A huge thank you to the incredible men and women of the @DoralPolice Department and @MiamiDadePD. Every day they keep our community safe. We are very grateful to you!

The police did an excellent job in handling this situation and acting appropriately to bring this man in before he had an opportunity to hurt anyone, which means the situation went about as good as it possibly could have.

We still don’t know whether or not this was motivated by someone’s distaste for Trump, but it’s definitely not beyond the realm of possibility.  This man could have easily been someone who is not a big fan of the current administration.

We’ve seen the leftists in groups like Antifa commit all sorts of acts of violence, a large chunk of which stems from their hatred of the current president.

We’ll just have to wait and see.

Liberal Legal Scholar Slams Twitter Over Censoring Trump; Declares ‘Free Speech’ Ultimate ‘Loser’

Published

on

Jonathan Turley, a constitutional law scholar recently warned that Twitter’s choice to fact-check and hide certain tweets from President Trump threatens the concept of free speech in the Unites States. Turley, a liberal, published a blog Friday that said, “Twitter is now making the case for government action to monitor and control social media. The ultimate loser will be free speech.” Thursday night, President Trump reacted to some of the violence and looting happening in the city of Minneapolis over the death of George Floyd, calling those responsible for the chaos “thugs” and threatened to cut loose the military in the city to get control over the situation. In a now hidden tweet, Trump said, “When the looting starts, the shooting starts.” Twitter then hid the tweet, requiring users to click an arrow in order for it to be seen, stating that it broke the rules by “glorifying violence.” Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “I am still leery of the government intervening on social media,” Turley wrote. “Free speech has few advocates in this fight. It is primary a struggle between Twitter, Trump, and the Democrats over who controls such speech.” Turley said he did not agree with the content of Trump’s tweets about the Minneapolis protesters but that they should not be censored. “Twitter had the chance to admit error and return to neutrality in the interest of free speech. It is clearly more concerned with expressing its views than preserving its forum,” he said. “Frankly, I would not care about such self-inflicted wounds except that free speech will likely suffer the collateral damage from Twitter’s glorifying speech controls.” Turley is right. Twitter has had plenty of opportunities over the last few years to change their strategies involving the engagement of content posted to their site. Instead, they…

Twitter Tags White House Tweet With Warning Label Over Message It Says Broke Rules About ‘Glorifying Violence’

Published

on

Twitter continues to go at it with President Trump, even after he signed an executive order that labeled social media platforms as publishers, thus opening them up to lawsuits over silencing opinions. The White House poked Twitter and basically dared them to put a warning label on the president’s tweet concerning the violence in Minneapolis over the death of George Floyd for a second time. They did. One would think that Twitter would get the message, but they aren’t. Guess they’ll have to get sued a bunch and lose a lot of money before they finally understand that folks, especially the president, aren’t going to take the censorship anymore. Here are more details from The Washington Examiner: Twitter said the White House account “violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence” after it repeated a tweet from the president that called the protesters “THUGS” and implied they could be shot. This happened after Trump first posted the tweet on his personal account early Friday morning, and Twitter placed a warning label on it. https://twitter.com/JTHVerhovek/status/1266363516153364480 “These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen,” the tweet read. “Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!” Twitter didn’t remove the tweets posted by the White House and from Trump’s account, but they are hidden and require users to click an arrow in order for them to be seen. There is a message placed over the tweets that says: “This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible.” As you can see, liberals…
