TV Host Fingers the Cause of Mass Shootings: ‘Racist Monster’ Donald Trump. But No One Can Answer My Question

Have you seen Full Frontal, the show hosted by Samantha Bee — who previously made headlines for calling the First Daughter a C-word (here)?

It’s been marketed as a comedy.

Here’s some of what she had to say Wednesday night…it ain’t exactly Carol Burnett.

Samantha wants America to “Get rid of the guns!”

Furthermore, the President is a racist, and his notion that “mental illness and hatred pulls the trigger, not the gun,” is, in her view, absurd.

“We are so sick of living in fear for no g*dd*mn good reason. It’s very clear what the problem is, despite the usual attempts by the President and others to pin the blame elsewhere.”

She thinks responsibility lies squarely with the hollow tube packed with gun powder; or at least the projectiles. And racist monsters:

“[T]he gun did put the bullets into people, mental illness did not. As far as we know, the El Paso shooter wasn’t mentally ill at all. Being a racist monster isn’t a mental illness. In fact, you can be one and be a ‘very stable genius.’”

With that, she displayed a tweet of Trump’s — wherein he referred to himself as a “very stable genius.”



Additionally, she characterized the Republican solution to violence thusly:

“Trump and the Republicans have laid out a clear solution to end gun violence. First, cure the mental illness they invented, then get rid of video games, the internet, plus transgender people, same-sex marriage, drag queens, marijuana, kneeling athletes, and Barack Obama — and while we’re at it, all embrace Jesus Christ as our savior. It’s just that simple! Well, how about this? Get rid of the guns. If not, come November 2020, we’ll just get rid of you.”

Again — not exactly Carol Burnett.

I have a question, respectfully, about outlawing guns.

Some on the Left want no one else to have a firearm.

Okay. Now how do you get the murderers to agree to that?

In all the passionate answers to the problem, I’ve heard no one provide an answer remotely addressing that.

In the meantime, if you’re a fan of hilarious comedy, you can check out Full Frontal on TBS, Wednesday nights at 10:30 EST.

Irony Alert: In Wake of Mass Shootings, Universal Pulls Ads For Bloody Thriller In Which Elites Slay ‘Deplorables’

Westlake Legal Group hollywood-sign-SCREENSHOT-620x327 Irony Alert: In Wake of Mass Shootings, Universal Pulls Ads For Bloody Thriller In Which Elites Slay ‘Deplorables’ universal pictures Red State vs. Blue State movie Movie

 

In light of the El Paso and Dayton, Ohio mass shootings, Universal Pictures has temporarily pulled ads for a gory new film starring Hillary Swank. The movie, entitled “The Hunt,” is about a group of wealthy elites who pay others to kill “deplorables.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Universal is evaluating its marketing strategy for their new satire film:

“The Hunt,” a gory, R-rated film from producer Jason Blum’s Blumhouse, which was originally titled, “Red State Vs. Blue State,” follows a dozen red-state Americans who are kidnapped and released in a hunting ground to be stalked and killed by high-paying elites.

“Did anyone see what our ratfucker-in-chief just did?” one character asks early in the screenplay for The Hunt, a Universal Pictures thriller set to open Sept. 27. Another responds: “At least The Hunt’s coming up. Nothing better than going out to the Manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables.”

In the aftermath of mass shootings within days of one another that shocked and traumatized the nation, Universal is re-evaluating its strategy for the certain-to-be-controversial satire. The violent, R-rated film from producer Jason Blum’s Blumhouse follows a dozen MAGA types who wake up in a clearing and realize they are being stalked for sport by elite liberals.

As soon as the news out of El Paso and Dayton broke last weekend, the finger pointing began. Liberals throughout the country self-righteously began blaming President Trump’s racist rhetoric on immigration for the shootings.

Do the writers, producers and actors responsible for this film see the great irony here?

Notice they are not scraping the film, they’re temporarily halting the ads for it, because, you know, they want to show their respect for the victims and their families.

The storyline says it all. It “follows a dozen red-state Americans who are kidnapped and released in a hunting ground to be stalked and killed by high-paying elites.” Cinematic magic.

A 2-minute trailer for this movie appears in the tweet below during which five people are brutally murdered. Watch the clip if you can.

The 2020 candidates, each of whom immediately blamed Trump should all watch this trailer. So should every member of the mainstream media.

This movie is pathetic and so are all the liberals who have pushed this narrative for so long.

Inconvenient Truth: ABC News Journo Accidentally Reports Trump Will Criticize *Anyone*, Not Just Persons of Color

Westlake Legal Group DonaldTrumpAPphotoJune2019-620x317 Inconvenient Truth: ABC News Journo Accidentally Reports Trump Will Criticize *Anyone*, Not Just Persons of Color white house washington D.C. Social Media republicans Race Politics North Carolina Media journalism Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats Culture Allow Media Exception

Without a doubt, one of the most enduring falsehoods myths Democrats and the mainstream media have perpetuated about President Trump for the last 3 years (including during his presidential campaign) is that he only criticizes people who don’t look and like him and who don’t share his political views.

In other words, he reserves his ire only for Democratic women, black people, Latinos, etc. The reason for that, they say, is because he’s a white nationalist who wants to suppress minority voices.

It’s not true, for reasons I’ve explained previously during the media/Democrat backlash to his tweet criticisms of The Squad and Rep. Elijah Cummings last month:

It just so happens that the four people who are saying awful things about America are WOC. It’s a mistake to think he’d hold back if they happened to be white. Think of all the people he’s targeted during his administration – even in his own party. Many have been white.

Saying he targets The Squad because they are WOC is as foolish as saying Pelosi dissed them because they are WOC. They just happen to be the loudest ones in the crowd, & loud folks tend to get noticed more. This is not about race, no matter how badly politically opportunistic people want it to be.

[…]

If the left wants to say he’s a jerk to people, fine, but saying this is about racism is inflammatory and wrong.

Again, he’s an equal opportunity “disser.” He was like this in 2016 against Republicans and Democrats alike, and he hasn’t changed. And won’t.

On Wednesday, when the incendiary accusations against Trump and Republicans of being terrorist enablers with “blood on their hands” were at a fever pitch – and Trump was was responding to them, ABC News‘s White House reporter Meridith McGraw compiled a list of people the President had criticized so far that day:

Wait, what? Impossible:

This is what I call “accidental journalism” – when a member of the mainstream media accidentally reports an inconvenient (to the left) truth about a Republican.

A Woman at the El Paso Memorial Gets Harangued by Chanters Over Her MAGA Hat: ‘The Hat is Hate!’

At a memorial for murder victims in El Paso Wednesday, a woman in a MAGA hat received the brunt of anti-Trump hysteria.

What’s worse, by the way: People who know better saying ridiculous things about the President, or people who should know better believing them?

Either way, there was a group of — presumably — the latter at the service.

Subsequently, there arose the absurdity that Donald Trump is responsible for the evil which occurred Saturday morning, leaving 22 lost in its wake.

See for yourself:

Some chanted, “That hat is hate! That hat is hate!” One woman yelled, “We don’t negotiate with terrorists!”

This was just gross. Using tragedy to wage political war…at a time when the wounds are fresh…at a memorial…is beyond inappropriate.

But Democrats began jumping while there was still smoke coming out of the gun.

Witness:

And:

Furthermore, consider this: There’s a tragedy in Baltimore (the city’s general condition), and Trump has no right to speak against it because he has no right to criticize (here); there are tragedies in El Paso and Dayton (murders), and Trump has no right to speak against them because he caused them — so says the criticism against him. Neither of these makes more sense than the other.

Some tweeters stood up to the chanters:

But at least one user clung to the idea that MAGA = KKK:

Ridiculous.

Under the bus: My former chief of staff was divisive, says AOC

Westlake Legal Group a-2 Under the bus: My former chief of staff was divisive, says AOC The Blog segregationists pelosi ocasio-cortez democrats chief of staff chakrabarti AOC

Via the Daily Caller, here’s how I like to imagine this process playing out behind the scenes.

Pelosi to AOC: Get rid of your bigmouthed pain-in-the-ass sidekick Chakrabarti or I’ll dog-walk you.

AOC:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez scolded her ex-chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti on Wednesday for comparing some of her centrist colleagues to racist Dixiecrats, calling his comments “divisive” and revealing she gave him a good talking to after the fact.

In an exclusive interview with the Daily News at her district office in Jackson Heights, Ocasio-Cortez said Chakrabarti’s recent resignation had nothing to do with his June 27 tweet comparing members of the moderate Blue Dog Coalition to “Southern Democrats” in the early 20th century who opposed desegregation efforts…

“I think it was divisive,” she said, adding, “I believe in criticizing stances, but I don’t believe in specifically targeting members.”

Ocasio-Cortez said there was an “internal conversation” in her office after the tweet.

Read this post for background on why Chakrabarti was such a burr in the Democrats’ saddle. His tweet comparing centrist Dems to segregationists for supporting the Senate bill on border funding (which was backed by Senate Democrats!) was obnoxious but it’s the tip of the iceberg in terms of why the caucus disliked him. I’m tempted to go as far as to call it a pretext for pushing for his ouster, which several Dems did — anonymously — in complaining to the media afterward. The tweet about segregationism was a venial sin; his mortal sin was pushing hard to move the Democratic caucus to the left, discomfiting centrist freshmen for whom far-left politics isn’t marketable back in their home districts. To top it off, his old outfit, Justice Democrats, was lining up primary challenges to some incumbent Democrats, further threatening their seats.

For some in the caucus, I think, it was a simple matter of “he has to go so that I don’t have to go.” And so, he went.

As for that part where AOC claims that she doesn’t believe in specifically targeting members, how specific is “specifically”? She dumped on centrist Democrats as a group during her primary bid, notes Jeryl Bier:

Also, wasn’t there a whole thing a few weeks ago in which Ocasio-Cortez not very subtly implied that Nancy Pelosi is prejudiced against the Squad because they’re women of color?

Did I hallucinate that? Was Chakrabarti’s segregationist analogy really that much more “divisive” than suggesting there’s a racist in charge of the Democratic caucus who has it in for minority women?

One more point. Justice Democrats, the far-left PAC co-founded by Chakrabarti that helped AOC defeat Joe Crowley in her primary last year, has been known to complain when centrist establishment Democrats criticize them as — wait for it — “divisive”:

Righty populists should be able to sympathize with that complaint. Of course establishmentarians attack populists as “divisive”: The latter are threatening the former’s hold on power and they’re doing it by highlighting points of deep ideological disagreement within the party. You can imagine Pelosi or Hoyer or whoever attacking Chakrabarti as “divisive” for his tweet and him replying, “If I’m ‘divisive’ because I care passionately about Latino immigrants and centrist Democrats don’t care enough, then I’m honored to be called ‘divisive.’” But it’s not Pelosi or Hoyer doing it. It’s his old boss, the progressive wunderkind, who was supposedly headed to Washington to speak truth to power even when it’s “divisive” to do so.

She’s in it for the long haul now, it seems.

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump arrive at El Paso International Airport to meet with people affected by the El Paso mass shooting, Wednesday, Aug. 7, 2019, in El Paso, Texas. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci)

In the immediate aftermath of the horrific mass shooting incidents in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH, there was a lot of chatter mostly among Democrats about whether or not President Trump should visit the cities. Most were opposed, naturally, for partisan reasons.

But because Trump doesn’t take his marching orders from Democrats and the MSM, he visited both Dayton and El Paso anyway. The El Paso visit was perhaps more significant than the Dayton trip only because the population of the Texas/Mexico border city is overwhelmingly Latino.

Couple that with the left’s erroneously blaming Trump’s alleged “white supremacist” rhetoric about illegal immigrants for the shootings, and the general assumption by our intellectual betters in the MSM was that Trump wouldn’t be welcomed nor tolerated.

The President visited the city on Wednesday, where the heartbroken members of the community were mourning the loss of 22 innocent lives and praying for the dozens more injured in the aftermath of a deranged domestic terrorist who opened fire at a Walmart on Saturday. MSNBC‘s Jacob Soboroff was there to cover their reaction to Trump’s visit, and here’s what he reported:

“Jacob, you’ve been in El Paso, talking to the community,” said MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi. “What’s the feeling there about the president’s visit?”

“Well, Ali, given the way that the president has talked about Latinos, and Latinos make up the vast majority of the population of the city of El Paso, surprisingly positive is the way that people are responding here, in the wake of the shooting,” Soboroff responded.

“I see calls for unity and a great spirit of togetherness,” he added.

Here’s the MSNBC Twitter account framed the segment:

The Trump campaign shared an edited clip that showed the first part of the segment rather than the very last part of it where Soboroff basically contradicted what he said in the first 30 or so seconds. He was not happy when he saw it:

In spite of acknowledging early on in the segment that El Paso Latinos were responding “surprisingly positive” to Trump’s visit, and that there were calls for unity rather than a city-wide outcry over Trump’s presence (the latter of which you’d believe if you listened to Beto O’Rourke), Soboroff came off as a partisan hack in discussing the atmosphere in El Paso, which I’ll get into in a later piece.

No, the El Paso Shooter’s Mother Didn’t Actually Call the Cops To Report Him

AP is currently running a story on the El Paso shooter headlined: The Latest: Lawyers: Crusius’ mom asked police about weapons. The story, or rather the headline, is getting a lot of play because of the current focus on the so-called red flag bill being promoted by South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham and Connecticut’s contribution to Stolen Valor, Richard Blumenthal. At some level one has to believe that the headline is the story and a disingenuous effort to support a narrative because the actual story tells us nothing and is not helpful to the people trying to restrict the ability of the rest of us to own weapons.

This is the story:

An attorney for the family of the man charged in the El Paso Walmart shooting rampage says the man’s mother contacted police weeks before the rampage out of concern that her son had a rifle.

Dallas attorney Chris Ayres confirmed to The Associated Press that the call was made to police in Allen, a Dallas suburb. He declined to give details, but he and fellow attorney R. Jack Ayres told CNN that Patrick Crusius’ mother contacted the Allen Police Department to ask about an “AK” type firearm Crusius owned.

The attorneys said the mother was only seeking information and wasn’t motivated by a concern that her son was a threat to anybody. They also said the mother didn’t identify herself or her son in the call.

Sgt. Jon Felty, Allen police spokesman, said there was no record of such a call and he wasn’t aware of such a call.

To recap. The attorney’s representing the family of the shooter say a call was made to the police. The police say there is no record of the call. The attorneys add that a) the mother was not concerned about her son being dangerous and b) she wanted to, it seems, make sure that his weapon was legal and that he could legally possess it.

Thus far, nothing has surfaced in either the El Paso shooting or the soon-to-be memory-holed Dayton shooting that indicates any system not involving a Department of Pre-Crime would have had enough information to prevent either shooting. This won’t stop people from running in very small circles and making puppy noises because, as you know, we have to DO SOMETHING.

They’re not coming for your guns, we’re told.

No, they are, and at least California Senator Kamala Harris is fully willing to send police to your home to take your guns from you.

According to the Washington Examiner, when asked if Harris would send law enforcement to homes to seize banned firearms, Harris answered in the affirmative:

When asked by the Washington Examiner if her plan would include legal gun owner databases or gun confiscation via law enforcement visits to residents who own banned firearms, she replied, “I’m actually prepared to take executive action to put in place rules that improve this situation.”

She continued, “I also have as part of my background and experience working on this issue, when I was attorney general [of California], and we put resources into allowing law enforcement to actually knock on the doors of people who were on two lists — a list where they had been found by a court to be a danger to themselves and others.

“They were on a list where they were precluded and prohibited from owning a gun because of a conviction that prohibited that ownership. Those lists were combined and then we sent law enforcement out to take those guns, because, listen, we have to deal with this on all levels, but we have to do this with a sense of urgency,” Harris added.

When we speak of “banned” firearms, Harris has actually said what she’s willing to ban earlier this year. Back in January, Harris noted during her CNN presidential town hall that:

“We have got to have smart gun safety laws in this country, and we’ve got to stop buying this false choice. You can be in favor of the second amendment and also understand that there is no reason in this civil society that we have assault weapons around communities that can kill babies and police officers,” said Harris.

As I wrote then in more detail, it may be mistaken to think that Harris meant fully automatic weapons. The problem is that these weapons have been banned, and the talk was centered around mass shootings. She was speaking about semi-automatic weapons, which are what Americans primarily own.

So, we have Harris wanting to ban semi-automatic weapons and her admittance that she will send law enforcement to your home to forcibly taken them from you.

But remember folks. No one is trying to take your guns.

No one.
