It’s not a surprise at all that Leftists will automatically blame any shooting on the NRA, saying the NRA is either directly or indirectly responsible for it. But there are times in which it’s far easier to dispel the NRA’s association with a shooting.
Of course, no NRA member has ever participated in a shooting unless it was to stop one, but there are times such as this most recent shooting taking place at YouTube’s HQ in San Bruno, California, where it’s far easier to destroy any arguments made against the NRA.
But Alyssa Milano, likely not having sufficient information, seemingly blamed the NRA for this recent shooting.
Milano tweeted: “If NRA or NRAtv were run by brown or black people, it would be labeled a terrorist organization with hate propaganda programming that incites violence,” before sharing a video from NRAtv that responded to YouTube’s censorship against videos and content creators that share videos about guns and called for people to “rise up”.
So she’s both racist and dumb for tweeting that. First, the NRA does have brown and black board members in Allen West, Carl Rowan Jr., and Roy Innis.
Second, the NRA has as little to do with this shooting as it has for all previous shootings that have ever taken place.
The shooter was not an NRA member. Far from it. She was a Muslim woman (I won’t share her name or face because I don’t want to unwittingly glorify her) who was a vegan and belonged to PETA. She was clear-cut Leftist as you can get.
And her reasons for shooting up YouTube’s HQ were seemingly for censoring her and demonetizing her content. That’s likely where Milano wishes to draw a comparison, but as Breitbart News shares with us, “There is no evidence she belonged to the NRA and her anger at YouTube pre-dates YouTube’s decision to censor videos made by gun hobbyists.”
So the shooter didn’t “rise up” against YouTube because the NRA said she should (although no sane person believes the NRA called for people to shoot up YouTube, but rather take a stand against their censorship and demand change diplomatically and peacefully. We take up arms against a tyrannical government, not a jerkwad of a company).
The NRA didn’t encourage the shooter to take up arms against YouTube. She made that decision all on her own, and seemingly before YouTube’s censorship policy.
Now, this being Twitter, you absolutely knew that people would criticize and ridicule her ignorant and, frankly, racist tweet.
One person commented: “Wow, that sounded racist. Why do you leftys always put color labels on people? We’re all human beings no matter what flavor you are. Putting color labels on people is racist.”
Another said: “You’re dumber than Nancy Pelosi”. Now that one’s a zinger… and also true… possibly. Both have said incredibly stupid things in the past.
One last one I’ll share with you said: “Actually Alyssa, many black and brown folks (why must you always subdivide Americans?) have been saved by using their 2nd Amendment rights to protect themselves. #LearnYourHistory”.
And that last tweet reminds me of a comment made by someone in San Bruno mere moments after the shooting. One witness was interviewed by a Fox News reporter. The reporter asked: “What’s going through your mind?... people dropping, being shot multiple times, bullets whizzing, people bleeding. What’s going through your mind?”
The witness, who is a YouTube employee, answered: “… I knew I had to be smart. You gotta think fast, you gotta be fast. I didn’t have a gun on me, but wish I did.”
And that really says it all, doesn’t it? No doubt, YouTube’s HQ is a gun-free zone and look where that got them. Thankfully and by the Grace of God, no one died except the shooter. The Daily Mail reported that San Francisco General Hospital received three patients from the shooting. One who was “a 36-year-old man [who] was in critical condition, a 32-year-old woman was in serious condition and a 27-year-old woman was in fair condition”.
Hopefully, they will all be able to recover and return to their families after this.
But returning to Milano, you really have to be making a stretch to put the blame on this on the NRA. Again, NRA members have nothing to do with shootings in general, but even Leftists should be intelligent enough to not blame the NRA for this shooting. Emphasis on the word “should”, because at least this one certainly wasn’t intelligent enough. (And yes, I know Michael Ian Black, another Leftist, also blamed the NRA for this).
What we know is that the shooter was a Muslim, PETA-supporting woman who was angry at YouTube for demonetizing her videos. She perpetrated the act reportedly using a 9mm handgun and ended up harming at least three people, one of whom is in critical condition.
The Left can’t possibly blame this on the NRA, partly because a handgun was used, not a semi-automatic rifle (which is very different from an assault rifle and a military-grade weapon. The military doesn’t use AR-15s because they’re not powerful or reliable enough). But the Left can’t blame this on the NRA either because there’s no evidence of a relationship between her and the NRA (though no other shooters really have a relationship with the NRA either) and because she was clearly a Left-leaning woman herself.
Of course, this didn’t stop Milano from expressing her ignorance on Twitter (although I doubt she had these facts with her). But you also have to wonder, aside from blaming the NRA which could be attributed to simply being uninformed, why did she have to make it about race?
Granted, that’s a bit of a rhetorical question, seeing as to how she’s a Leftist herself and Leftists tend to be very much racist, and have been given their history, but still. Why bring race into this? The NRA has plenty of minority leaders and members, with even more supporters as well.
I don’t doubt that, in her mind, the NRA is just a bunch of white supremacists, despite the fact that I shared in the paragraph above and despite the fact that her political party has a horrendous history of white supremacy coursing through their veins.
Regardless, it’s entertaining to witness highly ignorant people making a fool out of themselves and further sharing their ignorance with you all.
“But a stupid man will get understanding when a wild donkey’s colt is born a man!”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
