The authoritarian leftists running the “mainstream” media couldn’t even wait for the bodies to cool:
MSNBC’s Alex Wagner said the elementary school shooting will hopefully offer “some political capital” to reform gun laws.
When liberals say “reform gun laws,” they mean “gut or repeal the Second Amendment.”
Throughout the show, Wagner and her panel discussed gun violence and gun control. MSNBC contributor and Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart added shortly after Wagner’s comments that if Friday’s violence “doesn’t sear the consciousness of political leaders from the president on down, I don’t know what will.”
NBC’s David Gregory proclaims that the tragedy will “heighten everyone’s awareness” of liberals’ anti-gun objectives. That it will — the media will see to it.
USA Today’s Washington bureau chief Susan Page suggests that this could be “the tipping point.” The tipping point toward what? A bastion of liberal elitism spells it out:
“27 SHOT dead by GUN at CT elementary school, 14 r kids, & if I say our lawmakers & gun laws are killing us I’ll be told now ain’t the time,” Philip Gourevitch, the New Yorker staff writer wrote.
Still not clear? Let’s try a publication that is even more ham-fistedly statist:
“If any other plague was leaving piles of dead bodies all over the country, including children, our country would figure it out,” said New York Times media columnist David Carr.
From the liberal point of view, that plague won’t be cured until no firearms remain in the hands of law-abiding citizens. Then they will go after sharp implements.
There is no more dangerous weapon in the hands of a demagogue than a dead child in a puddle of blood. As authoritarians ramp up the rhetoric, keep in mind that mass-murdering maniacs are likely to target schools precisely because they are gun-free zones, where no one can stop them until the police arrive.
