The rekindled gun control debate has brought out the worst takes from the Left.
Coastal elites are wagging their fingers about the dangers of gun ownership.
And a Washington Post columnist told a whopper of a lie about gun control that only further proves facts don’t matter to the Left.
The Left are resorting to horrendous arguments to push for gun control.
Jonathan Capehart of The Washington Post and MSNBC is the latest to throw his hat in the ring.
Capehart started off his Post column by suggesting he might leave the United States.
He wrote, “Things felt so dicey during the Trump years, I half-joked that my husband and I might have to reenact that scene from ‘The Sound of Music’ and flee the country. Now, an alarming new report from the Southern Poverty Law Center shows that my “Operation von Trapp” might need to go live. The ranks of ‘crazy’ White people appear to be growing — and the rest of us don’t know what to do about it.”
First, there is no way any of these “woke” progressives would ever leave the United States.
If they did, they would only go to other trendy enclaves in cosmopolitan cities such as London or Montreal.
Capehart continued, “Right now, I am defining ‘crazy’ as anyone who believes any aspect of the racist ‘great replacement’ conspiracy. This is the noxious idea that liberals are deliberately replacing White people with non-Whites and immigrants. It’s what allegedly drove an 18-year-old man to target Black people in Buffalo, killing 10 and wounding three.”
Capehart is either ignorant or dishonest; Democrats are the ones who have been making the “demographics is destiny” argument for 20 years.
Talking heads in cable news, politicians, and liberal social scientists have all gleefully made the argument.
The Left have been pushing and celebrating the idea that "demographic changes" would benefit their side for years.
Now they're trying to spin it as a right-wing conspiracy theory. We have the receipts.

Capehart added, “According to that Post-Ipsos poll, 51 percent of African Americans said they have not considered buying a gun since the Buffalo massacre. Why is no mystery. The right to self-protection, let alone the right to bear arms, doesn’t exactly apply to Black people.”
This is a despicable argument.
Gun ownership has continued to rise, including amongst black Americans.
And despite Capehart’s best efforts, most gun owners are not afraid of “crazy” white people; they’re afraid of unhinged left-wing mobs burning down their cities with impunity.
That’s why gun ownership hit record highs in 2020, then went up again in 2021.
In 2020, shops had lines out the door, even in blue cities like New York and Los Angeles.
Capehart and other liberals are twisting themselves in knots to make nonsensical gun control arguments.

The Supreme Court leak triggered The Washington Post to write one article that will leave you in stunned silence
Democrats claim to care about maintaining “democratic norms.”
But in reality, they’re dismantling norms with radical proposals like packing the Supreme Court.
And the recent Supreme Court leak triggered The Washington Post to write one article that will leave you in stunned silence.
For the first time in the Supreme Court’s history, someone inside the Court leaked a draft of an opinion well in advance of the Court issuing a ruling.
The leaked draft opinion, which was written by conservative Justice Samuel Alito, appeared to overturn Roe V. Wade.
The leaker, presumably a left-wing clerk, wanted to create a furor among the Left, and that’s precisely what happened.
Unhinged protesters have gathered outside the homes of conservative justices for weeks, and one even tried to assassinate Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
And leftist journalists have written one pro-abortion “think piece” after another, but The Washington Post took the cake, writing such an over-the-top defense of abortion that it ironically turned into a pro-life piece.
The Post’s Caroline Kitchener penned the piece detailing the life of 18-year-old Brooke Alexander, who did not get an abortion because of a recent law passed in Texas.
The teen ended up having twins, and The Post tried to report this as a harrowing, life-crushing development.
“Sometimes Brooke imagined her life if she hadn’t gotten pregnant, and if Texas hadn’t banned abortion just days after she decided that she wanted one,” Kitchener wrote for The Washington Post. “She would have been in school, rushing from class to her shift at Texas Roadhouse, eyes on a real estate license that would finally get her out of Corpus Christi.”
“She pictured an apartment in Austin and enough money for a trip to Hawaii, where she would swim with dolphins in water so clear she could see her toes,” she continued.
This sums up the materialist feminist view.
Instead of having kids, get a real estate license and an apartment, and perhaps take a trip to Hawaii one day.
Of course, The Post presents those modest goals as unattainable now that Brooke has twins, which is preposterous.
Kitchener also tried to demonize crisis pregnancy centers for “tricking” women into not killing their babies.
“As the ultrasound technician pressed the probe into her stomach, slathered with gel, Brooke willed the screen to show a fetus without a heartbeat,” Kitchener wrote. “The technician gasped. It was twins. And they were 12 weeks along. ‘Are you sure?’ Brooke said. ‘Oh, my God, oh, my God,’ [Brooke’s mother] recalled saying as she jumped up and down. ‘This is a miracle from the Lord. We are having these babies.’”
Again, leftists believe this development is a bad thing.
The piece also delivered the nail in the coffin to the pro-abortion argument.
“[Brooke] couldn’t stop staring at the pulsing yellow line on the ultrasound screen,” the piece continued. “She wondered: If her babies had heartbeats, as these women said they did, was aborting them murder? Eventually, [the case worker] turned to Brooke and asked whether she’d be keeping them. Brooke heard herself saying ‘yes.’”
Leftists desperately try to avoid pondering this question, but there was no getting around it.
The entire piece is an unintentional nod to the pro-life movement.
But Democrats are so ensconced in their ideology, they cannot see the cracks in their argument.
Taylor Lorenz got caught yet again spreading fake news
Washington Post reporter Taylor Lorenz has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons lately.
Much of that is due to her constant lying and total disregard for journalistic ethics.
And now Lorenz has been caught yet again spreading fake news.
Taylor Lorenz is developing a reputation for bad reportage and worse behavior on Twitter.
Her latest ignominy stemmed from a hit piece she wrote in response to the Johnny Depp-Amber Heard verdict.
Lorenz accused online content creators of capitalizing monetarily from the trial.
The piece had to be edited three times due to errors, which would be a fireable offense under normal circumstances.
The New York Post reported that “The Washington Post has issued two lengthy corrections to an article by its notorious ‘internet culture’ reporter Taylor Lorenz. The piece, which had already been secretly edited after it was published Thursday, detailed how content creators made out big in the sensational Johnny Depp-Amber Heard defamation lawsuit that ended last week. Two YouTubers, ‘LegalBytes’ host Alyte Mazeika and an anonymous user named ThatUmbrellaGuy, were singled out in the article.”
Lorenz used the analytics site Social Blade to guesstimate their earnings, but the Social Blade does not provide an accurate accounting of how much an influencer made.
Also, Lorenz claimed to reach out to the two content creators, but they both claim they were never contacted.
Mazeika stated, “Um. This says I didn’t respond to requests to comment? I know I’ve gotten a lot of emails over the past two months, but I’ve just double checked for your name, @TaylorLorenz, and I see no email from you…Also, I didn’t suddenly pivot. I started covering this before trial began.”
ThatUmbrellaGuy was equally frustrated and confused by the mischaracterization in the piece.
He responded, “The Washington Post LIED and DID NOT contact me before including me in their story on Johnny Depp, despite reporting they did so…The Washington Post also FLAGRANTLY misrepresented my earnings report and needs to correct it. Social Blade says I made between $4.9k and $79.1k. They ADDED TO the highest estimate, overreporting for dramatic effect.”
Lorenz again claimed that criticism of her work was the product of sexism and a right-wing smear campaign.
But even people on the Left have called out Lorenz for her shoddy journalism.
Lorenz has torched her credibility, and the Post is also feeling the heat.
The Washington Post made this embarrassing mistake in its coverage of George Floyd
The corporate press continues to get worse.
Outlets sacrificed their credibility to attempt a soft coup against Donald Trump, and it’s been downhill ever since.
Now The Washington Post made this embarrassing mistake in its coverage of George Floyd.
The Washington Post, where democracy supposedly dies in darkness, has been a complete mess lately.
The paper empowered hack journalist Taylor Lorenz to release private information on a Twitter account that had gained huge traction by exposing the insanity of the Left.
Now, The Post ran a memorial for the two-year anniversary of George Floyd’s death, and the paper reported that Floyd had been “shot” by the police.
WaPo writes that George Floyd "was shot & killed in police custody."
He was never shot. He died of cardiopulmonary arrest & official autopsy found nothing to "support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation." His blood had 11 ng/mL of fentanyl.https://t.co/xtqA23zfk3 pic.twitter.com/27QapU2zaK

It’s somewhat understandable how The Post could make such an embarrassing mistake.
The Democrat Media Complex has pre-packaged narratives about the police ready to go.
The Left feed on officer-involved deaths.
During the 2020 riots, anti-police sentiment raged out of control, and the fans were flamed by the so-called mainstream media.
The Post has been terrible on other stories, as well.
The paper was one among many that spread the lie that Kyle Rittenhouse was a white supremacist shooter who crossed state lines with an illegal rifle in order to hunt Black Lives Matter protesters.
Not a word of that narrative was true, but it was spread far and wide.
Some truly negligent outlets even said that Rittenhouse shot black protesters; everyone he shot was white.
The Post is the same paper that stealth-edited a profile piece on Kamala Harris because the story included a passage that painted Harris in a horrible light.
Harris mocked the living conditions of prisoners, comparing them to Oliver Twist characters begging for water.
The Post has been caught stealth-editing stories in the past.
As for the two-year anniversary of Floyd’s death, the country is still reeling from the damage wrought by far-left rioters.
In 2020, the murder rate increased by 30%, the largest one-year jump in history.
And the violent crime problem remains today.
San Francisco and Los Angeles are attempting to recall progressive prosecutors who have implemented pro-crime policies that have made parts of the cities unlivable.
Americans can thank the media for much of the carnage they have had to endure, and The Post is one of the most responsible.
