It’s bad enough that the American media feels the need to lecture us about things they don’t understand.
Now it seems the rest of the world’s media mavens find it necessary to do it too.
But this British “journalist” just proved why no one takes them seriously anymore.
On the one hand you really can’t blame them.
The British aren’t really known for their knowledge of American culture. After all, it was their lack of understanding American individualism that cost them the colonies in the first place.
And they’ve never quite understood the United States and our passion for self defense and protecting our families and our nation.
Even when it means heading “over there” to protect Britain from Nazi Germany.
The British inability to understand American culture is almost as famous as their inability to cook.
And nowhere is this more evident than in their total lack of the ability to grasp the American gun culture-the American passion for our Constitutional Right to keep and bear arms.
So it shouldn’t come as a big surprise when a BBC “journalist” in what he thought was a clever attack on that culture ended up with poached egg on his face.
The British media personality fell flat on his face and instead faced swift mockery and ridicule after trying to bash the United States for our ease of gun and ammo sales.
BBC reporter Pádraig Belton tweeted out that he couldn’t find an adapter for his laptop at a Walmart but they were selling rifles and ammunition.
The problem is he then showed a picture of …BB guns!

You know, the kind of toy guns most 6, 7, or 8 year-old kids play with.
The kind of “guns” that might leave a mark if you get shot with one real close up.
The kind of “weapons” that probably wouldn’t even stop a column of Redcoats (I said probably).
As you can imagine, the responses to our friend from across the pond were hilarious.
“OMG Walmart sells BB guns that shoot tiny pellets almost powerful enough to bruise a squirrel,” read one response.
Another popular response with more than 8,000 likes was, “First, those are BB guns. Second, our guns are the reason we don’t bow to a queen.”
“I truly thought this was satire. OMG! How do they let you be a journalist? More importantly, how have you not seen the Christmas Story?!? It’s literally a toy,” another critic weighed in.
Not surprisingly, the reporter did not respond to any of the thousands of replies, almost all of which mocked him.
Maybe he shot his eye out.

The word police at the Associated Press are now shockingly censoring one word
The Left always tries to control language.
It’s one of the only ways they can sell their radical ideas.
Now the word police at the Associated Press are shockingly censoring one word.
The horrific mass shooting in Buffalo has managed to knock abortion out of the headlines.
The Fake News Media is going all-in on the white supremacist attack in order to pin the responsibility on Republicans.
It’s an absurd argument, but the Democrats are shameless.
In fact, they’re even manipulating language.
The Associated Press Stylebook does not want the killer’s 180-page ramblings to be classified as a manifesto.
The AP wrote on Twitter, “We don’t use the term manifesto in reference to a racist diatribe. It glorifies racist hatred. Other terms such as diatribe, screed or writings can work instead.”

However, centrist feminist Christina Hoff Sommers quickly corrected the AP.
Sommers wrote, “You are confused. Hitler’s Mein Kampf & rantings of the Unabomber are routinely referred to as “manifestos.” For example: Encyclopedia Britannica. “Mein Kampf, (German: “My Struggle”) political manifesto written by Adolf Hitler.”

Perhaps the Left don’t want to dirty up the word manifesto because of their fondness for Karl Marx’s “Communist Manifesto.”
Marx’s evil ideas have festered for nearly 200 years, eating away at society and poisoning a new generation of impressionable minds.
In fact, the Buffalo shooter wrote in his manifesto that he used to be a communist, but currently identifies as “mild-moderate authoritarian left.”
The shooter also wore the black sun insignia, a symbol sometimes used by the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion of Ukraine.
He also said that one of his main inspirations was the Christchurch shooter in New Zealand, who had trained with Azov prior to committing his despicable massacre at a mosque.
Both the Buffalo shooter and the Christchurch shooter claimed to be radical environmentalists.
All of these facts are inconvenient for the Left because they tacitly support the Azov Battalion in Ukraine, and they’re trying to blame the shooting on Fox News, even though he explicitly said in the manifesto that he hated Fox.
Democrats are trying to control the narrative, and that starts with controlling language.
Unfortunately for them, they no longer have a monopoly on the dissemination of information.
New journalistic standard proves the Democrats are complete liars on one issue
The ideas of the Left are utterly incoherent.
Yet, Democrats willfully go along with all of the crazy ideas.
And one new journalistic standard proves the Democrats are complete liars on one issue.
The Democrats are hopping mad over the abortion issue, which was rekindled after a Supreme Court leak of a draft opinion from Samuel Alito that suggests the overturning of Roe V. Wade.
The new battle over abortion has brought women’s issues front and center for the Left, but there is a glaring omission in their progressive rhetoric.
Suddenly, transgender men and nonsense terms like “birth people” are no longer part of the conversation.
The Associated Press Style Guide tried to clean up this obvious contradiction by issuing a new update.
The AP Style Guide update read, “Phrasing like pregnant people or people who seek an abortion seeks to include people who have those experiences but do not identify as women, such as some transgender men and some nonbinary people. Such phrasing should be confined to stories that specifically address the experiences of people who do not identify as women.”
In other words, it is okay to “erase” trans men and dispatch with idiotic terms like “pregnant persons” and “people who give birth.”
Democrats don’t want any distractions from their over-the-top pro-abortion zealotry.
The style guide update is a clear example of how Democrats will manipulate language in any way they can to achieve political power.
For example, in light of the 2020 Reign of Terror, the AP Style Guide suggested that outlets capitalize “black” when describing people of African descent.
The out-of-the-blue update made no sense other than to somehow contribute to the cultural “reparations” in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death.
Democrats are now trotting out the “my body, my choice” line that they abandoned during the peak of COVID hysteria when they were forcing people to take an experimental vaccine.
It’s quite stunning to witness the mental gymnastics of the Left when killing babies is at stake.
They have already renewed talks of packing the Supreme Court.
Luckily for them, Merriam Webster added a new definition of “court-packing” to dovetail with the newfangled Democrat definition of simply restoring ideological balance to the court.
That is utter nonsense.
The Democrats want the Supreme Court to remain a liberal super-legislature that will codify into law the agenda they can’t pass through Congress.
The Left have destroyed their credibility by torturing logic to such a hideous extent.
Unhinged leftist reporter says there will be no peace or safety until this happens to pro-lifers
The Left is totally out of control.
They will use just about any excuse to bring violence into their repertoire.
Now, this unhinged leftist reporter says there will be no peace or safety until this happens to all pro-lifers.
Violence is a part of who the Left is and what they do.
Violence is part of how they plan to take power, it is always part of their path to power.
And when the news broke in German-owned Politico that a leaked copy of a draft Supreme Court decision overturning Roe vs. Wade was out, violence was sure to be right behind it.
And it was.
A pro-life organization in Wisconsin was firebombed. Churches were vandalized, and at least one Supreme Court justice had to be moved to an undisclosed location due to violent protestors.
Pro-life college students who went to the steps of the Supreme Court to pray and peacefully demonstrate were attacked, spit on and shoved to the ground, and hundreds, if not thousands of threats were made by radical leftists around the country.
Including a reporter for Rewire News Group who called for “more” violence against pro-life Americans over the weekend as she celebrated the firebombing of the headquarters of a pro-life group in Wisconsin.
“More of this. May these people never know a moment of peace or safety until they rot in the ground,” Caroline Reilly wrote in a now-deleted tweet responding to a report from The New York Times about the firebombing.
Though Reilly has since removed the tweet, and in fact appears to have deleted her entire account, she didn’t do so until there was a firestorm of condemnation about her death threat against pro-lifers.
Just a few of the responses to Reilly; “Where are the police?” tweeted writer Rod Dreher, and activist Amy Kremer wondered where the response was from the FBI and the Department of Justice.
“How would they feel if the public started to Dox reporters that call for violence and arson? What if it came to their doorstep instead? People with a voice need responsibility when using it,” Republican Florida congressional candidate Vic DeGrammont wrote.
Republican strategist Matt Whitlock tagged Twitter support in his response to make sure they were aware of Reilly’s death threats (a lot of good that will do) “This feels a bit like calling for violence.”
But all the protests aside, nothing will be done to this reporter because she is on the “right side” of the political aisle for the DOJ and FBI.
Law enforcement only seeks to go after conservatives, not liberals, no matter how clear the violations.
Caroline Reilly will remain free to threaten death on even more people, let’s just hope she doesn’t actually follow through with her threats, because after all we know life means almost nothing to people like her.
