Media Mocks Texas Lt. Gov for His Comments on School Shootings. Here’s Why He’s Right.

These are the people who want to disarm you.

Mainstream news outlets and gun control advocates were quick to criticize Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick over his comments that the construction of the school in Santa Fe in which a 17-year-old gunman opened fire on Friday, killing 10, may have worsened the outcome.

What they didn’t understand was that he was actually right–the floorplans and exit and entrance strategies to any given building is the difference between a soft target and a hard target. There’s one problem: these critics simply have so little of an understanding of strategies for tactical defense, they couldn’t even recognize the language he was using.

“From what we know, this student walked in … with a long coat and a shotgun under his coat,” he said Sunday, according to a CNN article oh-so-objectively titled Texas official blames school shooting on too many exits and entrances. “It’s 90 degrees. Had there been one single entrance possibly for every student, maybe he would have been stopped.”

“We need to get down to one or two entrances into our schools,” Patrick said again on Sunday. “You have the necessary exits for fire, of course, but we have to funnel our students into our schools so we can put eyes on them.”

CNN, in their boldfaced and shameless bias turned this into: “Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick blamed Friday’s massacre at a high school near Houston in part on ‘too many entrances and too many exits’ on the campus, prompting some to mock his perspective as ‘”door control.'”

It’s unclear, if anyone other than CNN “mocked” Patrick for this, but they were in good, left-leaning, gun-grabbing company:

Dana Loesch on her radio program Monday said those mocking Patrick, however, are nothing more than “tactical keyboard warriors” on Twitter and know nothing of the plain security knowledge Patrick is displaying.

“Dan Patrick was mocked because he talked about something that the people mocking him didn’t understand. They don’t understand what it takes to secure something like a school,” she said. “Dan Patrick was absolutely right.”

She also referenced veteran J.R. Salzman who corrected Patrick’s critics by explaining “he’s talking about secure entrances. My kid’s school only has one entrance to get in and you have to be buzzed in by the front desk. That’s what he’s talking about. Controlling access, establishing a secure perimeter.”

This is very basic security lingo, and yet those who are most adamant about your Second Amendment rights being destroyed are the least knowledgeable in the issues they claim the most to know about: mass shootings, and keeping our children safe.

These are the people who want to disarm you.

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…
