An MSNBC reporter found himself in hot water for his accidental defense of the Second Amendment

Published

MSNBC is unapologetic for their left-wing views.

Their anchors and reporters regularly parrot far-left talking points and attack conservatives.

But one MSNBC reporter accidentally defended the Second Amendment and could end up in big trouble for it.

In the left-wing media, there is no sin worse than defending the right of citizens to keep and bear arms.

And on MSNBC, with rabid leftist hosts like Rachel Maddow, it is something you will never see.

But in a rare moment of candor, MSNBC reporter Kerry Sanders appeared to unwittingly make the case for the Second Amendment while reporting on the violent crisis in Venezuela.

While citizens of Venezuela are standing up to dictator Nicolas Maduro, the military backing Maduro is fighting back, often with extreme violence against the citizenry.

And Sanders reports on this, stating, “In Venezuela, gun ownership is not something that’s open to everybody.” Adding, “if the military have the guns, they have the power.”

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

MSNBC reporter Kerry Sanders unwittingly made the American case for the Second Amendment during a report Tuesday on the political upheaval in Venezuela.

Anchor Andrea Mitchell introduced Sanders for his report by commenting on the surprising ability of Venezuelan dictator Nicolás Maduro to stay in power, despite the pressure on him to step down.

“Not only hanging on but he appears to still control the military,” Sanders said. “You have to understand, in Venezuela gun ownership is not something that’s open to everybody. So if the military have the guns, they have the power and as long as Nicolás Maduro controls the military, he controls the country.”

Maduro’s socialist regime has presided over economic devastation in Venezuela, where citizens are beset by rising prices and food and medical shortages. The country banned private gun ownership in 2012 under Maduro’s authoritarian predecessor, Hugo Chavez.

This is the exact argument the most fervent defenders of the Second Amendment make.

Because ultimately, the right to keep and bear arms has less to do with personal defense, or hunting, than it does with providing a check on a hostile government.

And as we’re seeing in Venezuela, when citizens are unable to own guns they stand little chance in fighting back against a violent dictator like Maduro oppressing the people under absolute despotism.

Sanders clearly didn’t realize exactly what the argument he was making entails, as it was just a very short portion of his report.

Do you think the right to keep and bear arms deters would-be tyrants?

    Can’t argue with the Reporter on this one. Also THE USA needs some M-60s on the Southern Border right now. That would sure slow the stream of Invaders down. Every 6th round needs to be a tracer.

      So, a liberal finally admits gun ownership is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY to freedom. I suspect he will be fired for telling the truth.

    All I can say is, if we the people did not have that right, we would be stuck with former president Obama instead of our great president Donald Trump.

    I’m not willing to relinquish my right of unrestricted access to firearms for some demented social experiment.
    What if THEY are wrong?
    Leave our Constitution alone and go play with some other country’s destiny.

    The private ownership of firearms absolutely matters and it matters greatly! The left Wing Marxist Control Freak Democrap Party would like to institute a centrally controlled Communist police state government in America. However, with 350 million guns in the hands of American citizens, they know better than to even attempt such a coup!

    I agree with everyone here, private ownership o firearms absolutely matters and is core right guaranteed by the 2nd amendment and will not be relinquished.

This MSNBC host went on TV and told one outrageous lie they instantly regretted

Published

MSNBC has reached a new low.

The far-left propaganda channel sinking in ratings by the day led the network to engage in more shrill coverage of President Trump.

And this MSNBC host went on TV and told one outrageous lie they instantly regretted.

During a panel discussion on MSNBC’s “Meet the Press Daily” host Chuck Todd led a discussion of what Democrat primary voters are looking for.

Front-runner Joe Biden framed his candidacy as a contest for the nation’s soul.

Elizabeth Warren – who has risen to number two in the polls – is basing her campaign around an endless stream of socialist policy proposals.

Todd asked the panel if the Democrats had a choice between a contest of character and ideas.

That set off radical feminist and MSNBC host Kasie Hunt.

Hunt hysterically ranted that the only way to not have to worry about the President’s character was to elect a woman.

Mediaite reports:

As one point Todd asked if the Democrats want more of a substantive contrast or a character contrast.

Former DNC senior advisor Doug Thornell argued the policies Warren’s running on are popular with the American people.

“Can I just say, character-wise, let’s elect a woman, okay? This nonsense that’s been coming from our male politicians of all parties — I don’t know, I’m tired of it! You don’t want to worry about character? Elect a woman! Please. Thank you.”

Hunt – who has routinely spread fake news and misinformation about the U.S. women’s soccer team being paid less than their male counterparts – need only look back one election to see her statement is a lie.

Plus, there was never a more corrupt or ethically compromised candidate for President than Hillary Clinton.

Many Americans believe Clinton belongs in jail for her mishandling of classified information.

And she also spent years working to destroy the character of the women that credibly accused Bill Clinton of rape and sexual assault.

Hunt’s lie was ridiculous but since she spouted it off on fake news MSNBC no one called her out on it.

Tucker Carlson is about to go off the air for this terrible reason

Published

Tucker Carlson hosts one of the most highly rated shows in all of cable television.

This makes the Fox News star a target for the Left.

And now Tucker Carlson is about to go off the air for this terrible reason.

Fake news media reporters and Democrats can’t stand Tucker Carlson.

Carlson’s show routinely attacks Washington groupthink on immigration, trade, and foreign policy as well as exposes the lies and hypocrisy of the Fake News Media.

Five nights a week, Carlson makes the intellectual case for Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” agenda.

But the Left doesn’t believe any media should exist that questions liberal orthodoxy, so activists and so-called “journalists” set about silencing Carlson by spreading lies to his advertisers about him being a racist.

Carlson returned from a one week vacation on Monday after a controversy surrounding his factual assertion that white supremacy was not a national security threat to the United States.

The Fox News host called this idea a hoax.

That led to another round of activist-and-media-led sponsor boycotts that proved successful.

Carlson’s show had fewer commercials when he returned from vacation.

The New York Times reports:

The Monday episode of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” the host’s first since he left the airwaves for what Fox News said was a planned vacation two days after making the remarks on white supremacy, had fewer commercials than usual.

There were spots for turmeric drink mixes, ear wash systems and cup-holder mounts for smartphones, as well as ads for Dyson, Raymour & Flanigan and USAA, but none for products from SoFi, Calm or SteinMart. Those companies advertised on the program earlier this summer but said in statements in recent days that their commercials would not appear during Mr. Carlson’s nightly hour.

A Monday night episode from one year ago, the broadcast of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Aug. 20, 2018, had 16 minutes of ads, with 38 commercials that aired across the nation, according to iSpot.tv, the television ads measurement company. The Monday night episode this week, by contrast, had 13.5 minutes of commercials, with 23 nationally aired spots. Eight of the 23 were promotions for other Fox properties.

Mr. Carlson still attracts a large audience. He drew 3.1 million viewers on Monday night, the second-largest audience in all of cable that night. That number put him close behind his Fox News colleague Sean Hannity, according to Nielsen. But that has not been enough for the show to hang on to many advertisers.

From pressuring social media companies to ban conservatives and protesting Fox News advertisers, the Left is increasingly turning to corporate America to enforce their political agenda and attacks on American culture.

Liberals know the government can’t pass laws forcing companies to support a certain point of view.

And the Left is exploiting this fact to make corporations do their political dirty work.

Joe Biden couldn’t believe the harsh truth Tucker Carlson said to destroy his campaign

Despite taking an early lead, Joe Biden is slipping in his campaign for President.

It is only a matter of time before his campaign fully falls apart.

And Joe Biden couldn’t believe the harsh truth Tucker Carlson said to destroy his campaign.

The only thing Joe Biden had going for him in the lead up to the 2020 election was his proximity to former President Barack Obama.

For eight years, it seemed as though Biden and Obama were best friends.

But as Tucker Carlson explains, that entire friendship was nothing more than a sham, and Biden was merely another person Obama used to advance his own interests.

Carlson said:

“It was all fake, though, it turns out. In the end, Obama is not going to be there for Joe Biden. In fact, his eternal friendship has already ended. It didn’t even make it through the next presidential term. Instead of helping his trusted friend run for the presidency, Obama has refused to endorse Joe Biden. According to some reports, Obama repeatedly urged Biden not to run. ‘You don’t have to do this,’ he warned Biden.

“Obama, it turns out, cares about one thing — himself. He is obsessed with his political legacy. Every day that Biden stays on the campaign trail, he is detracting from that legacy. Why?

“Weeks ago, we told you not to believe the polls. The polls say that Joe Biden is the front-runner for the Democratic nomination. And, in fact, as of today, he still is. The polls tell you he has got a very good chance of being the president.

“But that’s not real. Biden officially is still in the lead. And yet, let’s be completely honest, Biden’s campaign is not a real campaign. It’s a zombie effort. It lurches from one blunder to another until finally, some catastrophe will put it out of its misery.”

Without former President Obama, Biden truly is nothing.

And the longer Biden continues to campaign without his endorsement, the sooner his campaign will end.

It is a harsh truth that Biden will just have to accept.

Do you think Joe Biden could beat President Trump?
