The mainstream media isn’t reporting that the Dayton shooter was a fan of Elizabeth Warren.
And if anyone mentions that fact, they are immediately silenced and blackballed.
One NBC reporter mentioned the shooter’s pro-Warren tweets, but tried to pass them off as meaningless.
NBC reporter Ben Collins on Monday falsely claimed the Dayton, Ohio shooter was “more neutral” with his political posts on Twitter, despite the shooter saying he would “happily vote” for Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) to be president.
Speaking to MSNBC co-host Ali Velsi, Collins offered new information about the Dayton shooter, explaining that “Authorities say they don’t find any race motives in this thing at all. They haven’t seen anything yet.”
“He killed his own sister,” co-host Stephanie Ruhle interjected.
“He killed his own sister. There is a social media presence. He identified himself as part of the left. He had tweeted — we don’t know if it was an endorsement or what it was about, but he tweeted about Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders,” Collins said.
When Ruhle attempted to clarify that the tweets mentioned Warren and Sanders in a “positive way,” Collins dismissed her.
“More neutral than anything. We don’t know if there’s any political affiliation.” …
Whoa, sidestepped that landmine!
Now comes word that Elizabeth Warren has responded, at least to the shooting itself, promising swift and immediate action on gun control if she’s elected president. And her strategy appears to be working.
Presidential candidate and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D.) endorsed ending the filibuster and using executive orders to address the gun issue Sunday night on MSNBC. The senator’s comments came in the wake of two mass shootings in El Paso, Texas. and Dayton, Ohio over the past weekend.
“We get rid of the filibuster and go with the majority vote,” she told MSNBC host Kasie Hunt.
Hunt asked Warren what she would do differently as president to get gun control initiatives passed.
“Part of it I’m willing to attack the corruption head-on, including the corruption of the gun manufacturers that hire all the lobbyists that call the shots in Washington,” Warren responded. “But the second part is remember, six years ago the Senate passed by a vote of 54-46 background checks. I say they passed. That was the majority, but not with a filibuster in place. It wasn’t good enough to get the job done.”
“On the first day I’m president, the Republicans want to try to block things, then we get rid of the filibuster and we go with the majority vote.”
“I take your point, but a president can’t end a filibuster by themselves,” Hunt pointed out.
“But a president can certainly call for it, and the president can certainly lead the charge, and the president right now as a candidate can run on it,” Warren responded. “I will do everything I can by executive order, but I will also lead on the argument of getting rid of the filibuster so that by a majority we can do what the American people have sent us there to do.”
“The filibuster is blocking action on guns. It’s part of the way that the gun manufacturers hold Congress in thrall, and we’ve got to stop that,” Warren added. …
