Over the weekend, Manhattan hosted “World Pride” to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots. Yesterday’s music event served as Pride Month’s swan song, and who better to encapsulate last month’s absurdities than pop ne’er-do-well Madonna?
Last Tuesday, Madonna teased her blatantly controversial “God Control” music video. The wait is now over. Today, the pop singer released her gun control-preaching propaganda piece and it’s just as tactless as expected.
View co-host Joy Behar, who has a history of saying awful things she ends up regretting, had little sympathy for Kyle Kashuv, a Parkland shooting survivor who just had his acceptance to Harvard University revoked. The move by Harvard came in the wake of the revelation that, at age 16, Kashuv made racist and anti-Semitic comments in an online forum.
Parkland school shooting survivor Kyle Kashuv made headlines this week after he revealed Harvard had rescinded his acceptance into the Ivy league school after racial slurs he texted at 16 years old were leaked to the media. A liberal mob called for the gun-rights activist to be punished for repeatedly using “n-word” in a group text with friends. On MSNBC Live with Stephanie Ruhle Tuesday morning, the host brought on race-baiting expert Eddie Glaude and anti-Trumper David Jolly to deny there was any anti-conservative bias in the matter, with Glaude slamming Kashuv’s white privilege, and Jolly arguing that Kashuv was dangerous.
PolitiFact has gone many months in between making judgments on Barack Obama comments. It must have made their liberal bones ache to give him a "Mostly False" for shamelssly un-factual comments he made about America in Brazil, like this: "Anybody can buy any weapon, any time without much, if any, regulation. They buy it over the internet. They can buy machine guns."
If you thought Big Government was the main threat to your free speech and gun rights, think again. Big Tech has come for both in recent weeks. As The Washington Post reported in a May 30 article, Salesforce has rolled out a new company policy that “bars customers that sell a range of firearms — including automatic and semiautomatic — from using its e-commerce technology.” Salesforce, a $120-billion Fortune 500 company based in San Francisco, creates software which many companies depend on to sell their wares online.
As has been documented over the years by MRC Latino, Spanish-language television in the U.S. has long been plagued by an overwhelming amount of messaging in favor of all kinds of gun control measures. Veteran Univision anchor Jorge Ramos, in fact, is well known for leading that charge.
On Monday's Hardball and during a town hall with 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, host Chris Matthews failed to make an obvious point of pushback when the Democratic presidential candidate talked up his plan to require national gun registration for all new purchases as a way of allegedly curtailing gun violence.
In an effort to exploit Friday’s tragic shooting at a Virginia Beach municipal building that killed 12 people, Virginia Democratic Governor Ralph Northam called on the state legislature to pass new gun restrictions. On Tuesday, MSNBC naturally brought him on for an interview to help push the issue, though anchor Kasie Hunt admitted it would be a challenge given his recent scandals.
The women of ABC’s The View on Tuesday hit far-left Democratic presidential candidate Eric Swalwell from the even farther left, quizzing the Congressman about taking the issue of gun control “out the hands” of politicians and into those who “are not beholden to the NRA.” They also demanded to know why Swalwell hasn’t, yet, come out for impeachment.
On Saturday's Smerconish show, CNN host Michael Smerconish responded to the Virginia Beach shootings by beginning his show with a commentary complaining about the absence of new gun control in the aftermath of other such shootings, and recalled dropping his NRA membership years ago. Smerconish's liberal commentary even inspired agreement from DNC chair Evan Perez who appeared as a guest in the next segment.
2020 Democrat Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) probably didn’t expect to actually have to defend his own policies when he appeared on CNN Sunday, but that’s exactly what did happen. CNN’s Jake Tapper had Booker on his show, State of the Union early Sunday, where he immediately pressed the Democrat to explain how his gun control plan would have prevented the recent shooting massacre in Virginia Beach.
