“Seventeen people were shot and killed at a high school? Better send us some money!”
The Democratic National Committee is using Wednesday’s mass shooting that left 17 people dead to ask for campaign donations.
The DNC on Thursday sent out an emotional email, signed by DNC chair Tom Perez, asking supporters to sign a petition telling Congress that “it’s past time to take action to address our country’s gun violence epidemic.”
Anyone who signs the petition, which requires giving the DNC your email address and zip code, is re-directed to a donation page asking for money to “help Democrats take on the gun lobby.”
On a related note, did you notice a lot of our nation’s totally objective and unbiased media outlets reporting that there have been 18 school shootings so far in 2018? Here’s how BS spreads and it’s proof the MSM gets their talking points from leftist activist groups (via Twitchy):
“This,” the [Everytown for Gun Safety] tweeted at 4:22 p.m., “is the 18th school shooting in the U.S. in 2018.”
And, just coincidentally, guess what happened next:
Sen. Bernie Sanders’s tweet including the claim has been liked more than 45,000 times, and one from political analyst Jeff Greenfield has cracked 116,000. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted it, too, as did musicians Cher and Alexander William and actors Misha Collins and Albert Brooks. News organizations — including MSNBC, ABC News, NBC News, CBS News, TIME, MSN, the BBC, the New York Daily News and the Huffington Post — also used the number in their coverage. By Wednesday night, the top suggested search after typing “18” into Google was “18 school shootings in 2018.”
That doozy was too much for even the Washington Post:
No, there haven’t been 18 school shooting in 2018. That number is flat wrong. https://t.co/MxQJ9BWSYi

Still more evidence that a sizable chunk of our nation’s political reporters and news outlets are nothing more than arms of the DNC and parrots of whatever liberal narrative is spoon-fed to them.
