(National Sentinel) Race-Based Shootings: The far-Left “mainstream” media is filled with firearms illiterates who are politically predisposed to oppose private ownership of firearms, two realities that make for intentionally false and racially inflammatory reporting on the issue of mass shootings.
As reported by the Washington Times, the media claim that there have already been 300 mass shootings this year is dependent in every way on just how you look at the findings:
In the aftermath of the Las Vegas massacre, left-leaning media outlets have been playing fast and loose with the data on mass shootings to inflate their number and suggest that white men make up a disproportionate share of the perpetrators.
John R. Lott, founder and president of the Crime Prevention Research Center, said the left uses an overly broad definition to capture gang violence and other incidents not typically considered to be mass shootings.
“It’s two different types of shootings we’re talking about: mass public shootings and shootings that occur in a public place as part of some other crime, like gang fights,” Lott, author of “The War on Guns: Arming Yourself Against Gun Control Lies,” told the paper.
“So when they want to emphasize that they’re committed by whites, they use the traditional definition of mass public shootings, like the Las Vegas attack that we just had. But when they want to make people think that this happens all the time, then they use a different definition,” he added.
The newspaper of record cited the Gun Violence Archive, an increasingly influential authority on the topic that defines “mass shooting” as an incident in which four or more people are “shot and/or killed.”
By the archive’s count, 277 mass shootings have been carried out this year.
In a word, that figure is bogus. Just a simple scan of the headlines since January proves that’s a lie and a politically, racially motivated lie at that designed to cause maximum division and anger among Americans — as if there isn’t enough already.
Nevertheless, the figure was cited last week in a CNN op-ed titled “How America has silently accepted the rage of white men.” The op-ed’s author, Naaz Modan, a content editor at Muslim Girl, argued that the almost-daily mass shootings are a “white man’s problem.”
So now not only are whites suffering character assassination by blacks and Hispanics, they now have to be similarly lectured by a Muslim woman — even as Muslim men throughout the Middle East slaughter each other by the scores every day.
The Marxist Left, in case you have yet to notice, is pulling out all the stops in its incessant drive to purge our country of all things traditional — our Anthem, our favorite sport, our flag, and our conservative, family-based culture. Their favorite tactic of choice is identity politics: Divide and conquer us along the lines of White People vs. everybody else, always painting the lowly, noble minority as the victim of ‘white abuse.’
Here at THS we’re frankly sick and tired of it. So we’re going to call these losers out every chance we get because the last thing we’re going to do is surrender our country to these America-hating racists.
Spread the word to your friends, and tell them to visit us here, every day, all day, for we’re fighting the good fight: A war to end all wars, the American culture war.
And we don’t plan on losing.
