At Telemundo, Second Amendment Equals White Supremacy

Listen to the Article!

Much to the disappointment of the liberal Hispanic news media, the violence, blood and death they predicted would happen at the demonstrations held in Richmond in favor of the Second Amendment, did not materialize. Doomsday seemed imminent as they forecasted that white supremacists would reprise what happened in Charlotesville in 2017, thus effectively amalgamating white supremacism with the constitutional right to bear arms.

This report from Telemundo News’ Weekend Edition hammers the point home, going so far as to include a priest in order to instill fear among their churchgoing viewers:

 

 

JAVIER VEGA: For now, at this church the faithful prayed for peace to prevail and thus avoid an episode like the one in Charlottesville in 2017, when violence among supremacist protesters ended with the death of a woman. 

FRANCISCO VALLE: I think that what happened in El Paso and what happened in Charlottesville, which is very close by, affects our community directly, and the people are a little fearful. 

VEGA: In Richmond, Virginia, Javier Vega, Noticias Telemundo.

Effectively lobbying for gun control and lumping gun-right activists into the supremacist category, Telemundo anchor Julio Vaqueiro opened the report as if reporter Javier Vega were a war correspondent stationed in hostile terrirtory. “In Virginia, there's a lot of concern at this hour. Tomorrow, there will be a clash in front of the state capitol, of marches for and against the plans of the state legislature to restrict the use of weapons. The demonstrations take place amid fears of violence and the recent detention of some extremists."

That was Telemundo´s first shot at equating pro-gun citizens with “extremists”.

The second shot, this time from reporter Javier Vega? “The fences and police presence everywhere evidence the tension in Virginia's capital Richmond, hours before a potential clash between protesters for and against gun control.”

Third, and without a doubt, the most ludicrous shot, again from Vega: “The entire state of Virginia is in an emergency”.

Begs to wonder what Francisco Valle, the deacon interviewed by Telemundo, has to say about the peaceful outcome of the event of which his community was “fearful”.

JULIO VAQUEIRO: Here in the United States, in Virginia, there's a lot of concern at this hour. Tomorrow, there will be a clash in front of the state capitol, of marches for and against the plans of the state legislature to restrict the use of weapons. The demonstrations take place amid fears of violence and the recent detention of some extremists. From Richmond, Javier Vega expands.

JAVIER VEGA: The fences and police presence everywhere evidence the tension in Virginia's capital Richmond, hours before a potential clash between protesters for and against gun control. 

HOMBRE: I see the community a little concerned about this gun issue because here it has been seen on several occasions that people can openly brandish their weapons. 

MUJER: As the world is today, well, anything can be expected and I always think that you have to take your precautions. 

VEGA: The entire state of Virginia is in an emergency 

GOVERNOR: There are groups with malicious plans

VEGA: … after receiving information that extremist groups could break into the protests called for this Monday. The Virginia capitol, which was just taken under control by the Democrats, started the year by passing gun control laws, including background checks and a ban on assault rifles. This includes the restriction on armed entry at the legislative precinct which has additionally enraged the proponents of the second amendment. 

PHILIP VAN CLEAVE: It´s ironic that is about gun rights

VEGA: (translating) Ironically, it's about the right to bear arms and they want to take them away from us, this activist said, but even from Washington, President Trump has joined the controversy. 

TWEET: “The second amendment is under very serious attack in the great state of Virginia …”

VEGA: For now, at this church, the faithful prayed for peace to prevail and thus avoid an episode like the one in Charlottesville in 2017, when violence among supremacist protesters ended with the death of a woman. 

FRANCISCO VALLE: I think that what happened in El Paso and what happened in Charlottesville, which is very close by, affects our community directly, and the people are a little fearful. 

VEGA: In Richmond, Virginia, Javier Vega, Noticias Telemundo.
