Some on the Left immediately pounced before any details were known, but here are several reasons why the story will magically disappear from the MSM radar rather quickly:
The YouTube shooter was: • Iranian • Militant animal rights activist • Vegan • Who had a bumper sticker on her car that read “Meat Is Murder” • Who hated YouTube for being capitalist • Who quoted Hitler in her videos • Who took this photo
That sound you just heard was the MSM, with the help of a lot of Dems, flushing that story down the talking points toilet.
The media’s challenge is to now find a way to make a shooting done by a leftist, non-Christian, non-male PETA member the fault of the NRA. They won’t be able to, so the story will disappear fast, just like any other liberal narrative-buster like this one:
A witness to the shooter near YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, California said during a Tuesday interview on Fox News that he wished he had a gun during the situation.
“What was going through your mind?” a reporter asked. “I mean, people dropping, being shot multiple times, bullets whizzing, people bleeding. What’s going through your mind?”
“I knew I had to be smart,” the witness said. “You’ve got to be fast. You’ve got to think fast.”
“I didn’t have a gun on me, but I wish I did,” he added.
You won’t be seeing that guy interviewed on any network newscast.
Don’t let a dog be put to death, adopt it, the president of the nation’s largest abortion provider suggested Tuesday.
Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards made the pitch on Twitter, employing the #AdoptDontShop hashtag advocating dog adoption over pet store purchases. Adopting (or, “rescuing” a dog from a shelter) would save its life.
The downside to this is that Josh Earnest was the one making the claim about Obama, meaning I’m not sure I believe it:
Former President Barack Obama is reportedly feeling “relieved” that he isn’t saddled with the “burden” of being commander in chief anymore, according to one of his ex-White House press secretaries.
“It’s obvious to most people who are watching that he is relieved to no longer be bearing the burden of the presidency,” Josh Earnest told the Hill in an article published Monday.
“I think there’s no doubt that he is more relaxed and more at ease and more unburdened than he’s been in a decade, and it shows,” Earnest, who started as Obama’s Iowa communications director during the then-candidate’s first presidential campaign, continued.
If Earnest’s claim is accurate, then at least we’ve finally found that “common ground” Obama always said he was after!
Gee, it’s almost like these Dems didn’t want to stumble across anything that could ruin their attempt to maintain plausible deniability:
Every one of the 44 House Democrats who hired Pakistan-born IT aides who later allegedly made “unauthorized access” to congressional data appears to have chosen to exempt them from background checks, according to congressional documents.
All of them appear to have waived background checks on Imran Awan and his family members, even though the family of server administrators could collectively read all the emails and files of 1 in 5 House Democrats, and despite background checks being recommended for such positions, according to an inspector general’s report. The House security policy requires offices to fill out a form attesting that they’ve initiated background checks, but it also includes a loophole allowing them to simply say that another member vouched for them.
Among the red flags in Abid’s background were a $1.1 million bankruptcy; six lawsuits against him or a company he owned; and at least three misdemeanor convictions including for DUI and driving on a suspended license, according to Virginia court records. Public court records show that Imran and Abid operated a car dealership referred to as CIA that took $100,000 from an Iraqi government official who is a fugitive from U.S. authorities. Numerous members of the family were tied to cryptic LLCs such as New Dawn 2001, operated out of Imran’s residence, Virginia corporation records show. Imran was the subject of repeated calls to police by multiple women and had multiple misdemeanor convictions for driving offenses, according to court records.
Remember last year when Debbie Wasserman Schultz threatened the Capitol Police Chief for not immediately returning to her a laptop that was seized from Imran Awan?
Why so nervous, Debbie?
This story stinks to high heaven, and you can tell because much of the mainstream media isn’t going anywhere near it.
Sinclair Broadcasting sent word to all their stations to make sure to air statements acknowledging there’s so-called “fake news” out there, and to make clear they’re not taking part in the pushing of any particular narrative. The result was a whole bunch of local news readers reciting the same script:
Having worked in local TV for over 20 years, such corporate edicts from any broadcast ownership aren’t necessarily a rarity, but this one had a particularly higher profile because it involved on-air statements. In any case, Jimmy Kimmel found it very disturbing:
