The MSM Narrative

Posted by Warren 

Even before Monday's gun-rights rally in Virginia, NBC News reporter Ben Collins called it a "white nationalist" gathering,  even as he warned against spreading "made-up stuff" on Twitter. Later on, Collins deleted his original tweet, and changed it to: "Hi everybody! I’m deleting a tweet so I can be super clear about tomorrow’s rally in Virginia." He then proceeded to rationalize  his obvious discrimination against the 2nd Amendment in general and those who support it in particular.

Here are a few videos and pictures of those "white nationalists":

This is "The Pink Pistols" a woman's gun rights organization.   

I saw one dimwit bemoaning that there weren't any police present. Maybe they weren't looking in the right place.

The right to self protection is a natural, individual right. Gun rights are Civil Rights!  Support the NRA, the oldest Civil Rights organization in the United States.


  1. This is why the Infotainment Media Complex scores around the same credibility as congress.

    The news media model has become unprofitable and it is dying as a result, so their solution is to sensationalize, demonize, polarize and scare-monger in an ever more clamorous competition for clicks.

    Infotainment Media Outlets are a baying mob of carnival barkers trying to outshout one another for our attention.

    1. Well, they need to get real jobs or volunteer for medical experiments. McDonald's is always looking for unskilled labor.

    2. My son has a degree in journalism. Don’t ask me why. He never worked in the field. What he told me, though, was that his professors continually harped on the fact that true journalists, which is to say those with “journalistic integrity” would shun any notion of being a proud American. There is nothing about being an American that should lead a rational person to develop a sense of pride in our way of life, or our history, or our culture. Now, maybe my son was lying when he told me that. I doubt it; I’ve never met a more honest person than my son. And if true, it sure does answer a lot of my questions about these “journalists” who continually preach to us about what America should be. Journalists—proof that lawyers have mated with orangutans.

    3. Mustang,
      Journalists—proof that lawyers have mated with orangutans.

      You should have posted a spew alert with that one.

      As for what your sons said about journalism "school," much the same is going on in many, many university classrooms: the deprecation of our way of life, or our history, or our culture. I see this in many AP courses right now.

    4. Exactly what happened when capitalism turned the newroom to a profit center.

    5. Ducky,

      I structured my comment to elicit such a response from you. Yes, they are all chasing dollars.

      What's the solution?

    6. I don't know, but I'd be interested to read your analysis -- is it cheeky to request a blog-post on this topic?

    7. Hi Jez,

      You should know by now we don't object to a little polite or witty cheek. I'll have to mull it over. We need a credible news media.

    8. Hello, Jez. Been windering where you've been of late. HAPPY NEW YEAR to YOU!

      Regarding your request to our friend, the Good Fellow SilverFiddle, I fail to understand what ameliorative value the could possibly be found in yet more tedious, "belaborative" analysis of what most people with an unbrainwashed understanding of Reality could only define as SELF-EVIDENT TRUTHS.

      The incredible tedium and utter WASTE of Time and Resources transpiring in our nation's sorry excuse for a Capital right now is a near-perfect case in point.

      The senate chamber is currently being filled by our depraved, demented DIRTocRats with endless dsplays of empty, vituperative, baleful BASELESS rhetoric that should only described as a Category Six HURRICANE of HALITOSIS.

      That IS the truth. No further "analysis" is needed. Instead those of us who find this violation of Decency and Right Conduct appalling need to stop quibbling, stop legalistic hairsplitting and begin to do whatever may be necessary to ROUT this SCOURGE from OUR system of governance.

    9. If the DIRTocRATS can't be ANNIHILATED,


      S___E__I___Z___E ... T___H___E___M___!

      D___U___M___P ... T___H___E__M in the D___U__N___G___E___O___N___!

    10. SF + 1.
      Warren + 1.
      "Exactly what happened when capitalism...." Really?? I refer Ducky to the old Soviet Russian saying, referring to the state 'news' outlets of the time: There is no Pravda (truth) in Izvestia (news) and no Izvestia in Pravda.

    11. What's the solution?

      Moving the newsroom OFF Grub Street (like this blog) alleviates (but doesn't solve) the problem.

    12. In the meantime, I suppose we must make due with the penny dreadful's we currently have. :(

    13. Nietzsche, "On the Future of Our Educational Institutions"

      "For centuries it has been an understood thing that one alluded to scholars alone when one spoke of cultured men; but experience tells us that it would be difficult to find any necessary relation between the two classes today. For at present the exploitation of a man for the purpose of science is accepted everywhere without the slightest scruple. Who still ventures to ask, What may be the value of a science which consumes its minions in this vampire fashion? The division of labor in science is practically struggling towards the same goal which religions in certain parts of the world are consciously striving after—that is to say, towards the decrease and even the destruction of learning. That, however, which, in the case of certain religions, is a perfectly justifiable aim, both in regard to their origin and their history, can only amount to self-immolation when transferred to the realm of science. In all matters of a general and serious nature, and above all, in regard to the highest philosophical problems, we have now already reached a point at which the scientific man, as such, is no longer allowed to speak. On the other hand, that adhesive and tenacious stratum which has now filled up the interstices between the sciences—Journalism—believes it has a mission to fulfill here, and this it does, according to its own particular lights—that is to say, as its name implies, after the fashion of a day-laborer.

      "It is precisely in journalism that the two tendencies combine and become one. The expansion and the diminution of education here join hands. The newspaper actually steps into the place of culture, and he who, even as a scholar, wishes to voice any claim for education, must avail himself of this viscous stratum of communication which cements the seams between all forms of life, all classes, all arts, and all sciences, and which is as firm and reliable as news paper is, as a rule. In the newspaper the peculiar educational aims of the present culminate, just as the journalist, the servant of the moment, has stepped into the place of the genius, of the leader for all time, of the deliverer from the tyranny of the moment. Now, tell me, distinguished master, what hopes could I still have in a struggle against the general topsy-turvification of all genuine aims for education; with what courage can I, a single teacher, step forward, when I know that the moment any seeds of real culture are sown, they will be mercilessly crushed by the roller of this pseudo-culture? Imagine how useless the most energetic work on the part of the individual teacher must be, who would fain lead a pupil back into the distant and evasive Hellenic world and to the real home of culture, when in less than an hour, that same pupil will have recourse to a newspaper, the latest novel, or one of those learned books, the very style of which already bears the revolting impress of modern barbaric culture—"

    1. Kinda sad that we have to listen to the opinions of non-gun-owning bed-wetters w/o guns.

    2. Yep, Joe' video it was Fan-frggin-TAS-tic!

      sadly, it, apparently can't be embedded! I wanted to post it DIRECTLY at my plce, but . . . NO CAN DO! BOO-friggin-HOO!

  3. Piss on the NRA, they’ve done jack and sh*t with respect to the fight in Virginia.....and they’re headquartered here. On the national level, support Gun Owners of America or in the Old Dominion itself, the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL), who was the single group most responsible for the Virginia sanctuary tidal wave, and the monumental turnout for Lobby Day 2019.

    1. Not just AWOL....utterly perfidious. NRA Spokesman D.J. Spiker recently stated: "The NRA is fully prepared to work to defeat Governor Northam's gun grab - but also work to find compromise."

      Compromise? Compromise with the cabal that has worked to erode and infringe upon a civil and Constitutional Right at every turn...offering nothing to 2nd Amendment supporters in return, as 'compromise'?


      We will not comply.

    2. CI,
      Compromise, huh? A pr move, probably.

      Even so.......

    3. Lifetime NRA member here, and I have to say I'm disappointed as well, especially when adding in the financial shenanigans. Lapierre should have been fired out of a cannon long ago.

    4. The natural inclination towrds Self-Protection from official Powermongers too easily produces weasel-like characteristics in those who (rightly) perceive themselves as under attack. Following that, cowardly attempts at Self- Promption by trying to curry favor with and cozying up to tyrants further corrupts th individual who rationalizes his ignoble behavior by telling himself he is "just trying to survive."

      It's highly remeniscent of some of the Jews in Concentration Camps who turned against their fellow prisoner-victims in the hope that they (the dishonorable, despicable cowards) would be among the very LAST to be KILLED.

      George Soros (ne Gyorgy Schwartz) was just such a Jew –– a wily, self-serving, totally unprincipled individual who doubtlss would have auctioned off the maidenhead of his infant daughter and sold his wife to white slavers to anyone who was in a position to make life more pleasnt for Gyorgy.

      Gyorgy Schwartz-Soros ought to be defined as The ESSEnCE and PERSONIFICAtION of VENALITY.

      Apparently, Gyorgy had no qualms about sending hundreds, possibly thousands , of is fgELLOW JEWS to their DEATHS in order to gain ascendancy for his vile, inherently corrupt, ruthlessly ambitious, totally rotten SELF.

      Unfortunately, the world is FULL of people like that on every conceivable level everywhere, and not all of them are Jews by a long shot.

      Cowardice and lack of respect for PRINCIPLE is te rootstock of CORRUPTION everywhere.

    5. SF - Agreed, but at this point WLP’s removal wouldn’t fix the endemic problems in the NRA. The only thing the organization is still useful for is firearm safety training, their museum and serving as a beard for Leftists projection fantasies about icky guns.

      Speaking as a biased Second Amendment Foundation member, SAF and GOA have had more legislative and judicial victories compared to the NRA.

    6. What earthly good could it do to know why
      Things are the way they are, if no one cares?
      Did Cassandra learn to zip her lip, and sigh
      Once her wise thoughts were tossed away like tares?
      How often have our chances for Salvation,
      Been lost through Ignorance and Derogation?

      ~ Oscillatto de Fanne

  4. Pajama boy never fails to entertain, does he? I predict that in ten or fifteen years, he'll still be operating out of his mother's basement, he'll be as relevant as he is today, not to mention as well informed.

  5. Mustang,
    In his mother's basement and anorexic, to boot.

  6. The "White Supremacist Rally" meme was really damaged by the black guy carrying a rifle and a sign reading "Black Guns Matter." He looked like he probably works at a brokerage firm, and was smiling as he chatted with both white people and other black people.

  7. Don't you think th David Hogg and St. Greta of Thunberg were man for each other?

    I would demand, however, that each be subjected to MANDAtORY STERILIZATION before their marriage could consummated.

  8. I for one want to know that I can go to church without fearing that I might be shot and killed because of my Christian beliefs. So if some law-bidding citizen wants to carry his (legal) gun into church, it's jus fine with me.

  9. Impeachment flops... CBS goes back to regularly scheduled programming....

    1. We are in a new era. The Democrats are employing decades-old tropes that don't work anymore.

      Walter Krankheit has left the building.

    2. Waltr CRONKITE was a VERY dirty Communist dog, Silver!

      Where have you been for the last fifty years?

    3. Franco, what was your opinion of Edward R. Murrow?

    4. Franco: You missed the point of my comment. My deliberate misspelling should have given it away.

    5. FJ,
      Impeachment flops... CBS goes back to regularly scheduled programming....


    6. WHOOPS! So solly, Silver. Like so many of us in today's mutually destructive mental climate, I am too much on the defensive. That's because we see very little of anything other than endless OPPOSITION, of course.

      It's a catching disease, I fear.

    7. what did I think of Edwar R. Murrow, Ducky? Like most Americans at the tim I thoroughly enjoyed Person-to-erson. It was vastly entertaining, even though i was just a child at the time.

      HOWEVER, wen it all came ut no too many years later that the ENTIRE News Establishment was run and populated by crypto-COMMUNISTS, I began to see how and why we lost our Collective Mind in the SICK-sties, and have never recovered from the insanity that had ever-so-gently, ever-so-subtly, and veers-CRAFTILY been wormed into our national CONSCIOUSNESS by wolves in sheep's clothing.

      Of all the bigwigs in the News Racket of that era the only one I still want to remember with at-least-a a semblance of confidence, trust and kindness was ERIC SEVAREID.

  10. Speaking of Penny Dreadfuls... I was wondering if Ducky had received any nominations for the Justice Democrats 2020 casting call? AOC and The Squad need re-inforcements... and Ducky would fit right in!
