New York Post columnist: Public ‘too quick to damn masculinity’ because of ‘mutation’ of #MeToo, feminism

The public is often too quick to criticize classic masculine traits while ignoring their “chivalrous” actions in tense situations, according to Miranda Devine.

In her recent New York Post column, Devine laid out cases in which the “noble side” of masculinity is often glossed over, as the writer told Dana Perino Friday on “The Daily Briefing.”

“I think we so quick to damn masculinity, and unfortunately, this sort of offshoot fo the feminism movement, this sort of mutation of the #MeToo movement, has conspired to tell boys and young men that their masculinity, their very essence, is somehow toxic — is malign and diseased,” she said.

“Every time we have these stories of mayhem and bloodshed … you see men rushing in to save the weak, to save women, save children.”

SYDNEY STABBING VICTIM IDENTIFIED AS SEX WORKER WHO REPORTEDLY SAW SUSPECT BEFORE RAMPAGE

In her column, the Australian columnist pointed to brave actions by men during a recent stabbing attack in Sydney and the actions of a bouncer during the Dayton, Ohio, shooting.

She said the bouncer, Jeremy Ganger, stood “at a door and ushered everyone in, and he was injured in the process but he protected others.” Ganger suffered a leg wound in the attack.

In Australia on Tuesday, a 21-year-old man allegedly stabbed a 24-year-old woman to death, then went on a public rampage before being confronted by a group of civilians.

Those who intervened pinned him to the ground with a milk crate until authorities were able to arrest him. New South Wales Police Superintendent Gavin Wood said it appeared that the attack was unprovoked.

In her Post column, Devine described the phenomenon of men rushing toward danger as, “the chivalry instinct.”

“We always are quick to point to the dark side of masculinity when violence is committed, but too often we overlook the feats of bravery by men who combat it,” she wrote.

More than 100 Ohio pastors petition for Chick-fil-A in their town: ‘Taste and see that the Lord is good’

faith-filled Ohio community got a taste of Chick-fil-A, and they want it to stay.

America’s favorite fast-food restaurant brought a food truck to Mansfield, a city halfway between Cleveland and Columbus (cities that both have Chick-fil-A), as part of a market study, according to CBN News, and it was enough to rally the community, including over 100 local pastors.

FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL PHOTO OF SIBLINGS PRAYING GOES VIRAL: ‘WE PRAY FOR EVERYONE’

Amie Mutti, founder of “Richland County Loves Chick-fil-A,” launched a Facebook page in 2017, long before the food truck first appeared on July 11. The move was in large part because of the company’s charitable giving and community outreach, especially when Chick-fil-A has made exceptions — like after the Pulse Nightclub massacre in 2016 in Florida — and opened on Sundays to help a hurting community.

“Support for Chick-fil-A has been ‘water-cooler talk’ so we’re just putting their voice on paper,” Mutti told Fox News. “We hear stories of the commitment they have to the community, how they reinvest into the community. We thought it would be a good fit and their sandwiches are delicious so that doesn’t hurt.”

On Wednesday, Chick-fil-A, along with the famous cow, provided a free meal and toy to the campers and staff at Happy Hollow Day. Mutti says it’s community efforts like this that make them go out of their way to get a Chick-fil-A.

“They don’t even have a store here and they’re giving back to our community,” Matti added.

The group of local pastors, who signed a proclamation declaring 2019 as the “Year of the Bible,” were quick to get onboard with Mutti’s movement, lauding the “exceptional reputation of Chick-fil-A as a business and as a community stakeholder.”

One of the pastors, Rick Wiseman, knows about this first-hand. His son, a pastor in Georgia, lost his hearing in one ear and Chick-fil-A paid over $40,000 to get cochlear implant surgery to restore his son’s hearing.

“I have the highest respect for this company,” Wiseman told Front Lines Ohio. “Perhaps God is moving north central Ohio to spiritual revival with God-fearing companies possibly coming to our area.”

“The faith community in Richland County, Ohio, has a strong tradition and while this has not been the case in other parts of the country, we wholeheartedly support the prospects of Chick-fil-A choosing our neighborhood as its next franchise destination,” the 101 clergymen wrote in a joint statement.

Quoting the Bible, in part, the pastors added: “We are eagerly ‘setting the table’ in anticipation for the arrival of Chick-fil-A, and firmly believe that our families will taste and see that the Lord is good.”

For now, Richland County residents are on the lookout for the big red food truck that keeps popping up in their area so they can “Eat Mor Chikin,” but they’re hoping for a permanent store sooner rather than later.

“Having Chick-fil-A year-round would be nice,” Mutti added. “The talk has been, ‘Okay, where will the truck be in the winter?’ We’re all getting a little nervous about how we’re going to get our chicken fix when the weather turns.”

Dayton gunman spent half-hour inside bar before returning for rampage, police chief says

The gunman who killed nine people, including his sister, in a 32-second rampage Aug. 4 in Dayton, Ohio, seems to have planned the attack “well before” arriving at the city’s Oregon District, the city’s police chief said Tuesday.

The attacker, who was killed by police less than a minute after firing his first shot, spent nearly a half-hour inside a bar he apparently targeted before returning wearing an ill-fitting bulletproof vest and carrying a rifle, the chief said, suggesting he had been “casing” the location.

EL PASO AND DAYTON SHOOTINGS STIR GUN DEBATE, WILL DC REACT OR IS CYCLE REPEATING?

But police Chief Richard Biehl stressed that the shooter was already well familiar with Ned Peppers and other bars in the area, according to the Dayton Daily News.

“This was not a place he did not know,” the chief said during an hour-long news conference, according to the report.

The chief added that 17 people were injured, not 14, as police previously reported.

Still unknown, however, the chief said, was whether the gunman intended to kill his younger sister, Megan Betts, with whom he had traveled to the Oregon District, along with a friend who survived the attack.

But the chief confirmed that the killer knew his sister and the friend were near Blind Bob’s, because text messages show the siblings were communicating during the time that the gunman was away, returning to their car to get his rifle and other gear.

Biehl said the friend, Chace Beard, sent the shooter a text message seven minutes before the shooting, saying where he and the sister would be – and that’s where they were eventually shot.

“It’s an interesting question,” the chief said about whether the sister was an intended target. “We have radically different views in that regard. … We may get a better insight through historical data looking back, but based on the evidence from that night, I don’t think we can make that call.”

The chief also said that investigators believe the sister had no knowledge that the shooter had a rifle and other gear in the trunk of the vehicle they rode in together.

Meanwhile, Biehl also said investigators had gathered enough evidence to reveal a “clear picture” of the killer’s frame of mind: that he was obsessed with violence, and that he expressed interest in committing a massacre, the Daily News reported.

But what made the shooter choose Aug. 4 and the Oregon District remained unclear, the chief said.

According to the chief, a timeline shows the gunman, sister and friend arrived in the area shortly after 11 p.m. They visited Blind Bob’s for a little more than an hour, then the gunman went across the street, alone to Ned Peppers, where he stayed for about a half-hour.

He then walked back to their car, passing a police vehicle, and spent about eight minutes gathering his weapon and other gear.

Police believe he assembled the gun behind Blind Bob’s, in an area not covered by a security camera. Then he came down an alley alongside the bar and began opening fire in a patio area around 1:05 a.m. and was fatally shot by police less than a minute later.

Meanwhile. A friend of the gunman was expected to appear in court Wednesday afternoon after being accused of buying the body armor and helping assemble the weapon used in the Dayton attack.

Investigators say no evidence suggests that Ethan Kollie, of Kettering, knew what the gunman was planning, but they say Kollie lied on a federal firearms form while buying a pistol that was not used in the attack.

Dayton gunman shot 26 people in 32 seconds before police killed him, officials say

The gunman who carried out the Aug. 4 mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio spent nearly two hours in the area before he opened fire, killing nine people and injuring 17 more, according to newly released surveillance footage pieced together from several local businesses.

Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl said Tuesday that 24-year-old Connor Betts shot 26 people in the span of 32 seconds before responding officers fatally shot him outside of Blind Bob’s bar. Previously, police and hospital officials said at least 14 injured people suffered gunshots wounds. Overall, 15 of the people shot that night were female and 11 were male.

PROSECUTORS SAY FRIEND OF OHIO SHOOTER BOUGH HIM ARMOR, FIREARM

Betts was first caught on camera in the area at 11:04 p.m. when he parked his car and walked to Blind Bob’s with his sister Megan and another companion.

Police said the footage “strongly suggests that his [the siblings’] companion,” who was wounded in the rampage, “had no idea what he [Betts] was gonna do nor did he have any knowledge of the weapons that were in the trunk of that vehicle.”

All three of them went to Blind Bob’s, where they remained until 12:13 a.m. Betts left the bar alone and went across the street to another bar, Ned Peppers, staying there until 12:42 a.m.

Betts, dressed in a t-shirt and shorts, then left Ned Peppers and headed back in the direction of the parking lot, crossing paths with a police cruiser that was in the area, Lt. Paul Saunders said during a press conference.

Biehl said there is a “strong probability” that Betts went into Ned Peppers to case it but added, “he was very familiar with the Oregon district so this was not a place that he did not know.”

“This was a plan well before he got to the Oregon district,” Biehl said noting that its unlikely that anything happened inside of the bars that made the shooter decide to carry out his rampage.

Police say the shooter went back to his car and spent eight minutes changing into a long sleeve dark hoodie and “gathering content out of the trunk of that vehicle,” which included a “very heavy backpack.”

Authorities say Betts spent about nine minutes making his way from the parking lot towards the strip of bars again, through an alley connecting the two and used that time to load his AR-15 style gun before he emerged from behind the alley and opened fire near Blind Bob’s at 1:04 a.m.

Police confirmed that the shooter’s sister, Megan Betts, was one of the first three fatalities, but Biehl conceded that law enforcement officials had “radically different views” about whether the shooter intentionally killed his sister first.

Biehl revealed that phone evidence from that night showed that the shooter texted back and forth with his sister and their companion as soon as seven minutes before the shooting began and that the companion told Betts that they were at a taco stand near Blind Bob’s.

Biehl said Betts “did know where they were at because they were communicating during this hour back and forth.”

Biehl also said that Betts and his sister spoke on the phone before the shooting, although it is unclear the content of the phone call. Despite knowing their whereabouts, police said they could not conclusively say whether the shooter could see his sister and her companion from his vantage point across from Blind Bob’s, as they may have been obscured by the decor of the bar, which included umbrellas on the patio.

“By our best resources that we have at our fingertips, we believe that the shooting started at approximately 1:05 and 35 seconds. We believe it ended at 1:06 and 7 seconds; that’s 32 seconds” Saunders said.

Biehl’s said that although Betts was wearing body armor throughout the shooting, the armor was “vulnerable,” allowing responding officers to shoot and kill him.

“He had (ballistic) plates but that’s all,” Biehl’s said.

Although authorities could not confirm the shooter’s motive, Biehl’s said Betts had a “history of obsession with violence and violence ideations, the discussion of interests in mass shootings and the expression of desire to carry out a mass shooting.”

Biehl’s said Betts was in the Oregon District the night before the shooting, adding you “certainly have to consider there was some thought being given to it at that time.”

Police found some evidence of drug paraphernalia “on his person” but whether Betts was intoxicated or under the influence of drugs remains uncertain pending toxicology reports, Biehl said.

Authorities have said there was nothing in Betts’ background to prevent him from buying the gun, stating that the weapon was purchased online from a dealer in Texas and shipped to another firearms dealer in the Dayton area.

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine: New gun measures crafted by Second Amendment supporters, will respect due process

Gov. Mike DeWine, R-Ohio, said his state’s new proposed gun-control measures have been crafted by Second Amendment supporters and will respect due process, during an interview on “Fox News Sunday.”

Guest host Bill Hemmer asked DeWine about red-flag law skeptics, saying many of them have voiced concerns about a potential lack of due process and the possible weaponization of such a measure. It would let a judge order the confiscation of firearms from certain people who pose threats.

“The previous governor tried what they called a red-flag law. It did not have the procedure. It did not have the due process,” DeWine said. “We developed this particular bill in consultation with a number of our Second Amendment friends.”

He added, “They have always told me, look, we know there’s some people that we need to separate them from their guns temporarily, or maybe longer than that. But, we’re really worried about due process. We’re worried about a neighbor getting mad at a neighbor and coming over and calling the police and the police go confiscate the guns. So, we put this together with them. It has due process in it. You have to go to court. A judge has to make that determination.”

DeWine also addressed calls for better emotional counseling in schools for young adults and cheered the Ohio state assembly for allocating funds to arm schools and boost mental health options.

More from Media

“We’ve got to do better in reaching people at a very, very young age. We have, in the budget that was just passed by the general assembly, and I congratulate them for giving us the money that we need, we have the ability now to arm our schools, give our schools the ability to have better counseling, [and] more mental health,” he said.

“Virtually every one of these cases, as you said, somebody’s looked up a long time ago and said, hey, this guy is giving all the signs, antisocial behavior. This guy is a menace and we need to be able to do something. The schools need the tools, we are now giving them the tools to do that.”

The previous governor, John Kasich, also a Republican, recently said he had to resort to executive orders after the legislature failed to pass a red-flag law during his tenure.

Politically charged rhetoric directed at President Trump is hurting his ability to help heal the pain of communities reeling from mass shootings, according to Rudy Giuliani.

Trump is acting in the same capacity as former President George W. Bush did when he visited Manhattan after the 9/11 attacks, Giuliani said Wednesday on “The Ingraham Angle.”

“It’s very sad for our country that they’re doing this,” the former New York City mayor said of critical rhetoric against the president.

“I remember what it meant to New York when President Bush came here four days later. It lifted everyone’s spirits — they felt like the country was behind them,” Giuliani said.

MASS SHOOTINGS BRING TRUMP TO DAYTON, EL PASO AMID PROTESTS

Giuliani, who now serves as a personal attorney to President Trump, said the president is “just trying to heal some of the pain these people are going through” in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.

However, he also warned the president’s critics who were politicizing Trump’s response that doing so could backfire on them in the long run.

“Politically, this doesn’t play. This is very, very partisan,” he said. “I think most of the American people can see through this. It is a shame these people have degraded themselves to this level — to do this kind of thing, it’s really shameful.”

In Texas, the president was greeted at the airport by the state’s Republican governor, Greg Abbott, as well as Sens. John Cornyn, R-Texas, and Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and El Paso Mayor Dee Margo — who bucked Democrats’ calls on Monday to turn the president away.

As happened earlier Wednesday in Dayton, Ohio, scene of another lethal mass shooting last weekend, Trump was greeted by protesters demanding tougher anti-gun laws and an end to caustic rhetoric — including some from the president — that they believed to be contributing to a culture of violence in America.

On the whole, however, reaction to Trump’s visits was welcoming — and, according to MSNBC correspondent Jacob Soboroff, “surprisingly positive.”

Ohio’s Republican governor called for his state legislature to adopt Red Flag Protection Order laws in the wake of the mass shooting in Dayton.

Gov. Mike DeWine also thanked President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump for their visit with victims and families affected by the tragedy, in an interview Wednesday on “Your World.”.

“I have asked the state legislature to pass a very well-thought-out process that respects the Second Amendment and respects due process of law,” he said.

“When you have someone who is a threat to themselves or a threat to others, and who has guns, there ought to be a procedure where family members could go into court or police could go into court and present the evidence and have those guns temporarily taken away from that person.”

DeWine said such a policy would go a long way to prevent suicides and save lives in general.

He added during Ohio’s last budget proceedings, he had asked the legislature in Columbus to put an emphasis on mental health reform, especially in the school system.

“We really have an epidemic,” he said.

Of Trump’s visit to Dayton, DeWine said the president and first lady were gracious and consoling to victims and appreciative of law enforcement.

“I can just tell you in every room he went, there were family members and sometimes victims and they were all very happy to see the president,” he said.

He added he asked the president about passing “red flag” laws, and that Trump, in turn, asked him to forward him a “summary” of his ideas in the near future.

Nationwide, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Hawaii, Florida, Indiana, Illinois, California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Colorado and the District of Columbia have enacted state “red flag” laws.

Ohio shooting victim called father of kids before she died: ‘Babe I just got shot in my head’

A mother who was killed in the Dayton, Ohio, mass shooting during the weekend used her final moments to reach out to her children and their father to let them know she loved them.

Lois Oglesby, 27, was one of nine people fatally shot when a gunman opened fire outside Ned Peppers Bar in the city’s Oregon District early Sunday — hours after another gunman, in El Paso, Texas, also opened fire, leaving at least 22 people dead.

OHIO SHOOTING VICTIMS INCLUDE GUNMAN’S SISTER, MOTHER OF TWO WHO WAS A NURSING STUDENT

A nursing student who had just returned from maternity leave and worked at a daycare center, Oglesby called the father of her children as the massacre unfolded, letting him know she’d been shot.

“She FaceTimed Me And Said ‘Babe I Just Got Shot In My Head, I Need To Get To My Kids,'” Daryl “Dee” Lee” wrote on Facebook about Oglesby.

Lee said since her death, he hasn’t been able to stop crying.

“Like That’s Strong As F— To Hold Off To Call Me!! She Was Letting Me Know She Loved Me And To Take Care Of These Kids And I Got You Babe!!!!!!” he wrote.

Oglesby’s friend, Derasha Merrett, described the victim to the Dayton Daily News as “a wonderful mother, a wonderful person” who aspired to work with children.

“We grew up as cousins,” Merrett said. “We grew up in the same church, on the same drill team. She works at my kids’ daycare. We all grew up in this little town. We’re all family. We’re all hurting behind this.”

She leaves behind an infant and an older daughter, according to her friend.

Authorities identified the gunman as Connor Betts, 24. Investigators have not offered a motive as to the Sunday slaughter.

Parkland victim’s father: El Paso, Dayton shootings shouldn’t be followed by political grandstanding

Westlake Legal Group Carlson-Pollack_FOX Parkland victim's father: El Paso, Dayton shootings shouldn't be followed by political grandstanding fox-news/us/us-regions/southwest/texas fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/ohio fox-news/us/crime fox-news/shows/tucker-carlson-tonight fox-news/news-events/florida-school-shooting fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz article a6f29728-1780-543d-aec7-531087af6315

Politicians were wrong to respond to the Dayton and El Paso mass shootings over the weekend by trying to forward their legislative agendas, according to Andrew Pollack.

There appeared to be little concern for serious fact-finding in the aftermath amid the political and media “frenzy,” Pollack claimed Monday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“These politicians jumped on these events to push their political agendas and the victims aren’t even in the ground yet… and they’re pushing an agenda without even looking at the facts of what went wrong,” he said.

“Let the police do their job and look into what happened. They’re pretty pathetic.”

TRUMP TO VISIT EL PASO MASS SHOOTING SITE, IN SPITE OF DEMS’ WARNING TO STAY AWAY

Pollack, whose daughter Meadow was killed in the 2018 Parkland school shooting in Florida, further criticized lawmakers.

“There are no words that I could put on it to tell you how it affected me when my daughter got murdered,” he said of the politicization of the aftermath of his own family’s tragedy.

“I’m so damaged by what happens with these people. To push a gun control agenda and take our rights away from victims — I’m not going to be a victim.”

He added many of the suspects in similar crimes are not introduced to personal accountability.

“It happens a lot with these kids while they’re juveniles of not showing them accountability,” he said.

“You have to get to these kids while they’re still in high school and younger — when they’re committing crimes and acting out.

“They need to be introduced in the judicial system in order to point them in the right direction.”

Late Monday, El Paso, Texas, Mayor Dee Margo told reporters on Monday that President Trump will visit the city later this week.

Margo said the president will come to the west Texas city on Wednesday, even as several prominent Democrats indirectly blamed the president for Saturday’s mass shooting there — with some warning him, in frank terms, to stay away.

Fox News’ Gregg Re contributed to this report.

Dayton vigil attendees issue challenge to Ohio governor: ‘Do something!’

During a candlelight vigil Sunday night honoring the nine victims killed in a mass shooting in Dayton in the morning, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine was challenged by protesters to “Do something!”

DeWine addressed hundreds gathered in the city’s Oregon District, the entertainment area where 24-year-old Conner Betts opened fire outside a crowded bar.

The governor, a native of the Dayton area, praised the city’s residents for their “love and resiliency” in the wake of the tragedy.

Shortly after a round of applause, however, several protesters began chanting “Do something!” and “Make a change!”

The chants persisted as DeWine tried to continue his remarks, and became so loud that many attendees had trouble hearing the Republican leader, Cleveland’s WKYC-TV reported.

Later Sunday afternoon, DeWine told reporters that “everything’s on the table” when it comes to gun-policy changes, including background checks.

“We’re open to discussion,” he said, according to Cleveland.com. “This is a debate that certainly should take place.”

“We’re open to discussion. This is a debate that certainly should take place.”

— Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine

DeWine, 72, a former U.S. senator, congressman and state attorney general who campaigned for governor last year as a pro-Second Amendment defender of gun rights, reportedly declined to speak at length about specific gun reforms that the state could enact out of respect for the victims and lack of details about the shooting.

Any gun reforms need to be constitutional, he said, and must be able to pass the state’s Republican-controlled legislature.

The governor did, however, signal confidence in so-called “red-flag” legislation, which he unveiled in April. The measure would allow authorities to confiscate guns from those deemed a threat to themselves or others.
