Happy Hour News Briefs
I’ve been waiting for the Oath Keepers (or one of the other vigilante groups) to weigh in on the shooting in Las Vegas, and they do not disappoint. So here we go (no link for obvious reasons, but easy enough to find):
With regards to the latest mass shooting at the concert in Vegas on Sunday night – our condolences to the family and friends of those killed. To those that were injured, to the first responders and medical personnel that had to deal with triage and treatment in the face of this carnage and to the rest of my fellow citizens who wait for some light (and truth) to be shed on the matter; our thoughts and prayers go out to you all. It is a truly a time of testing.
OK, that’s pretty good for an opening, suggesting waiting for some truth before jumping to conclusions.
What happens next, you ask?
The mishmash of conjecture and conspiracy theory is enough to make the head spin. The following have been stated as fact or reigned back in as the investigation continues: Multiple shooting sites (no, just the one), Multiple shooters? Time will tell (or not). Explosives in his vehicle (tanerite or ammonium nitrate?). Antifa literature in his room? Was the room rented or comped? Off-duty police officer or security guard makes initial contact? Were they wounded or killed? Entry team kills the shooter (no, he committed suicide). He was firing an automatic weapon (or was it a bump stock?).
OK, pretty good still, debunking some misinformation…
The list of details and disinformation isn’t the story. The story, as we will be led to believe by the lame stream media, is about how vulnerable we are and how dangerous those bad old guns are.
GAH! I found the razor blade in the apple!
…Fact: that group of God and Country lovin’ conservatives were fish in a barrel, twenty thousand plus strong in number, shoulder to shoulder in an open-air venue. Conjecture: they were collateral damage on the Globalist’s altar. Purpose: cause enough outrage at our vulnerability to cause/force a knee-jerk reaction – we’ve gotta do something!
Oh, dear. So we’ve gone from zero to full-on, balls-out, hammer-down, mad-monkey, terrordome crazy in under 800 words.
