MSM Reporter Demonizes Gun Owners Calling Them White Nationalists
I guess the MSM now believes that people who stand up for our rights are white nationalists? It appears NBC reporter Ben Collins has started a smear campaign against the Virginia gun owners. He tweeted the following loaded tweet a day before the pro-gun rally that was held this past Monday.
"Reporter's covering tomorrow's white nationalist rally in Virginia, I am absolutely begging you:
Verify information before you send it out tomorrow, even if it's a very sensational rumor you heard from a cop.
Don't become a hero in neo-Nazi propaganda circles with made-up stuff."
There was, of course, a public outcry as this is just ridiculous.
"Speaking of propaganda and made-up stuff, Lobby Day isn't a "white nationalist rally," but an annual event for Virginians to lobby lawmakers. Is this the type of coverage we should expect from @NBCNews?" Cam Edwards, editor of Bearing Arms, responded.
"Does this white nationalist apply to my black friends going tomorrow who believe in their 2A right? I'll wait," another critic responded.
"The irony of big brain over here "begging" people not to spread disinformation while also mislabeling a pro-Second Amendment demonstration as a "white nationalist rally" has been lost on no one, correct?" another person responded.
"Someone should tell my Jewish, Black, and Hispanic friends on their way to VA for Lobby Day that this guy considers them white nationalists," another person responded."
Collins has since taken down the tweet due to rightfully being reprimanded for his ignorant post. He now claims that White Nationalists are planning to attack the event.
"Hi everybody! I’m deleting a tweet so I can be super clear about tomorrow’s rally in Virginia.
The Lobby Day protest is and has traditionally been a gun-rights rally, but white nationalists, including militant group The Base, have been planning violent action at the event."
It seems odd that White Nationalists would attack a pro-second amendment rally... But this is likely all part of an anti-gun smear campaign as Dems want to demonize guns and those who are in support of the second amendment. Especially Governor Northam who wants to confiscate Virginians guns
