The Media’s Worst Fears Were Realized …

… there was no violence and only one arrest at the pro-Second Amendment protests in Virginia

Throughout the morning CNN, MSNBC and the rest of the media were filled with talk of the possibility of violence … white rednecks … white supremacists and imagery of the Klan.

To the disappointment of people like Brian Stelter, Fredo Cuomo, Alisyn Camerota, Lawrence O’ Donnell and Andrea Mitchell, the violence they had hoped for never materialized. The slightest incident would have provided a month’s worth of non-stop propaganda about weapons of war Charlottesville II,evil gun owners, racist rednecks, white supremacists and racism. Any violence would have been linked to President Trump, the Republican Party and the NRA.

To the media’s complete dismay, a number of the patriotic Americans attending the rally were black.

The Second Amendment protesters obeyed the law, were extremely polite and considerate. Unlike left-wing protesters, they even picked up after themselves.

Here’s a thread from Legal Insurrection that contains a number of video segments that capture the events in Richmond.

Hardly the violent, racist, white supremacist event the media was hoping for

    JR –

    You know the media is concerned if it is considering the unthinkable … prayers.

    Be honest: Don’t you think many in the media were hoping the Second Amendment protesters would kill someone today?

    Bc3b that’s why the Babylon Bee isn’t satire in this case 🙂

    JR – It becomes more difficult distinguishing between reality and the Babylon Bee every day.

    More photos of the rallye here — https://westernrifleshooters.wordpress.com/2020/01/20/on-set-richmond-rally/#comments

    Observations:

    * Where was Antifa? They were supposed to make a showing. Guess they realized they would be ‘out gunned’ shall we say?
    * Does crowd size matter? In a dense crowd can a false flag be executed? Some were expecting such an event.
    * Not many young people in the crowd. From coverage much of the crowd looked in the 40ish range. Clear indicator how f’d up out education system is.

    Other than that I wonder if the VA Pols got the message? I suspect that there maybe an effort to have direct recall of elected officials. Many States have such provisions some do not. Might be worth considering for federal level.

    With the exception of the “More patriots than you have handcuffs,” most of the signs are home made.

    9,

    Like they say, guns make for peaceful relations. Except in Chicago, Baltimore, New York and any church without a security detail. The common thread? The victims are not armed.

    the TEA Party rallies we went to back in the day, were all peaceful, respectful and CLEAN! We picked up any trash and left the site (Sacramento) cleaner in each case than when we got there.

    in both case the Sacramento Bee (a far-Left “newspaper”) screeched about how “violent” we were. LOL!

    I know who I’m voting for in November. USA!
    https://donsurber.blogspot.com/2020/01/trumps-remarkable-remarks-at-davos.html

    Our president said, “America’s newfound prosperity is undeniable, unprecedented and unmatched anywhere in the world. America achieved this stunning turnaround not by making minor changes to a handful of policies, but by adopting a whole new approach centered entirely on the well-being of the American worker.”

    President Trump talked about actually serving the people who entrusted them with power.

    He said, “Every decision we make on taxes, trade, regulation, energy, immigration, education and more is focused on improving the lives of everyday Americans. Only when governments put their own citizens first will people be fully invested in their national futures.”

    JimNorCal –

    #13. Ever notice how many gun control proponents (DiBlasio, Mini Mike and a lot of Hollywood actors) have armed bodyguards?

    #12. While Losertarians would have a fit over it, I see nothing wrong with laws against wearing masks when protesting. If you claim it’s too cold, pick a warmer day.

    #14. While US unemployment is at all-time lows, Germany’s is rising.

    Lie-A-Watha’s son-in-law is from India (the country). Does that make her part Indian?

    The lede on that story should read — “Democrat stabs, kills pro-Trump boss, drapes American flag over him, deputies say”

    re:19,

    `He praised gulags and said that the “Soviet Union was one of the most progressive places” in history for women’s rights.`

    What a moron! Yes USSR was progressive enough that approximately 3m women were starved to death in the Ukraine. Another 2m killed by Stalin. Yeah they got equality good and hard. My wife does not praise it one bit, and the MIL is darn near livid if the topic comes up.

    You have to wonder just how many radical communists in the Sanders campaign Project Veeritas will expose. Certainly there are hundreds/thousands?
