There’s a very good reason
the media is silent about
the Milwaukee mass shooting

On Wednesday, an angry ex-employee got a gun, put a silencer on it, went to the MillersCoors facility where he had once worked, and shot five people to death before shooting himself. One would expect to have a barrage of news stories about America’s gun violence problem and the need to ban guns. (snip)The reason for the media’s silence became apparent when the media identified the shooter: 51-year-old Anthony Ferrill was black. This meant that the media couldn’t use its white supremacist narrative to justify grabbing guns. The narrative broke down even further when social media posts revealed that Ferrill may well have been an Elizabeth Warren supporter

Historically, I don’t believe the media ever had any purpose other than to manipulate public opinion even the small conservative segment. It’s always about whose ox is being gored.

I wondered why we haven't been beaten over the head with this "work place violence involving a gun".. The reporter from ABC News that got bit by James O'Keiffe, told the truth. They are socialist and they will not report anything but things that they think hurt Trump.

Milwaukee is so close to Chicago, they can just lump this incident in with the normal weekend street sweeping in Chicago's South Side and nobody will notice.

I lived there for 25 years. Milwaukee is the most segregated city in America. Although Ferrill was doing pretty well economically, most blacks in Milwaukee don’t. There is a brain drain to “chocolate” cities like Atlanta, DC and even Chicago. Ferrill apparently felt he was discriminated against at Miller. So no, he does not fit the narrative.

It took me days to buy a gun, legally register it, take a gun safety course, stand in line to apply for a concealed carry and get my fingerprint taken. I could get a gun illegally here in less than an hour.

When you hear the term "mass murderer" usually an image of a deranged white man comes to mind. But blacks are responsible for many mass shootings; think of all the funerals/parties/family gatherings/block parties/music raves/even anti gun marches(!) where a black gunman shows up and indiscriminately empties a magazine into a crowd. The MSM never calls these people mass murderers-they call them "teens", or "unknown assailants", etc. After all this time, we've learned to read between the lines-what they DON'T tell us is more revealing than what they DO tell us.

The narrative has changed...a minority is among the victims. The noose angle has been tossed aside, although he was having issues with one other employee that may have had a racial angle. It is apparent the man was paranoid...claiming his co-workers were bugging his computer and invading his workspace. He was being investigated by a workers comp private eye, and was on opeoid pain killers, likely to be the next "reason". Usual stories about nice guy, great neighbor, can't believe it was him, etc.

It sure was quiet in the media about this. I didn't even know it happened until I read the headline of one of the postings here yesterday. Media too busy trying to make a mountain out of a virus right now. In my lifetime I do not think I have ever seen such a vulgar excuse for humanity as the media is turning out to be. Same with congressional democrats. Exploiting this in order to panic people is so wrong.

"a silencer"? There's no such thing. Perhaps the writer or "journalist" meant a suppressor. "silencers" are only in movies. Even with a suppressor, a gun shot is still noticeable. According to our own government statistics 58% of all murders are committed by blacks or "African-Americans",...another 28% are committed by Hispanics or others from our Southern border for a grand total of 86% of all murders in the USA are committed by our black and brown brothers and sisters which leaves we poor whites with only 14% of murders left to commit. Should we complain about "bias" and "discrimination"? Should we close the "murder gap"?

A black man angry enough over years of perceived workplace discrimination to come back and pull a revenge-murder-suicide isn't too hard to attach to the Left's race narrative. And the only reason the brewery worker liked Warren was her "get me a beer" line... Or maybe the enemedia are just waiting to find whether Anthony had any ancestors lynched by whites, or even if he has white ancestors, so they could drown out his being black by showing pics only of his white ancestors to give the impression he was white.

I'd be interested in hearing more about the suppressor he used. Impossible or next to it in NY state, but I was under the impression it required extra paper work, a permit of some kind and at least a $200. fee. Somehow I doubt the murderer did all that. BTW, all a suppressor can do is somewhat mute the very loud sonic crack of any ammo from a .22 on up. The best ones permit shooting with minimal or no ear protection, but it is still firecracker loud. It is the education by TV and movies that make people think 'silencers' let you shoot guns with a soft click or pillow thump sound. Subsonic, low load, small caliber weapons can be pretty quiet, but not very effective because of the reduced power. At that level you might as well use a pellet gun, which is louder than most people think.

#17, suppressors are legal in 42 states, but require the $200 tax stamp, fingerprints, a photo for a detailed background check and a 6 month to one year wait for the paperwork to clear. They are legal in Wisconsin. He may well have gotten it legally. Or perhaps he made it himself, VERY illegal, but so is murder. You are exactly correct that suppressors are louder than TV and movies (everything you learned about guns on TV and in movies is BS), but with naturally subsonic cartridges a handgun suppressor can be reasonably quiet, and certainly quieter than a firecracker, but certainly NOT 'movie quiet'. Maybe a loud screen door slam, or loud car door slam might be close for the better ones. Oh, and the good ones are FAR larger than the silly little things shown on TV and movies, like almost 2" in diam and around 10-12" long.

#19, exactly. I believe they are actually encouraged in Europe, which is logical since it would be very useful for lowering the volume at gun ranges, especially indoors. Another ineffective burden on legal gun owners thanks to 'lawmakers' who more often than not, have no idea about read firearms, but love to score points with dopes who vote and the gun porn media which celebrates illegal gun violence to the max and then harasses actual, legal gun owners as criminals. Despite the barriers to using suppressors, some ranges have large tubes, around 20 inches in diameter and several feet long that sort of confines the muzzle flash and sound. Have not shot with one of these on a stand, but seems like it would help when the someone is shooting a rifle next to your stand.

Jennifer Rubin’s death wish for Republicans
is factually wrong -and the maps prove it
10 replies
Posted by Magnante 3/17/2020 6:37:16 AM Post Reply
Once upon a time, Jennifer Rubin was an intelligent woman. Things started to go downhill when she went to work for the Washington Post, but what really flipped the switch in her brain was seeing Donald Trump become president. Not only did she lose perspective, but she also lost intelligence, self-restraint, and decency. Her latest flight of NeverTrump nastiness has her speculate about possible Republican deaths during a time of coronavirus. Her speculation not only reveals an even further degradation of mind and soul, but she's got things entirely bass-ackwards wrong – and a couple of maps prove it.

Everything you’ve heard about a Trump rally is true: It is a coming together of a broad swath of people who still believe in the Constitution and the promise of America. They see Trump as someone who shares their views and, having made America great, can keep it great. If you’ve watched rally videos, you already know what makes them so special: It’s Trump himself. He is exactly as you see him on the screen -- a larger-than-life, uniquely American character, a showman who is nevertheless a person of tremendous substance and accomplishment. He's also a comedian with the perfect timing

The Democrats have truly lost their minds. For years they have wailed about how our borders should all be open, there should be no walls. When President Trump six weeks ago banned travelers from China, they called him a racist, of course. Now that the virus has spread, they are blaming him, accusing him of an anemic response. Wrong. The country has a pandemic plan in place, no matter who is president, but Trump has been on the case since China informed the world of the virus breakout. A task force to address this virus has been in place for at least a month.

While Michael Bloomberg's Nevada debate performance was justly and widely panned, he attacked Bernie Sanders effectively, demonstrating he's probably the only candidate who can derail the Vermont senator's nomination. By the same token, Sanders can wreck Bloomberg's hopes by mobilizing his own base against the billionaire at the convention or even running as an independent candidate. Each man has the ability to take the other one down, and that dynamic is the key to who eventually wins the nomination.

Democratic debates in times of coronavirus make for even less interesting television than during normal times, whatever that means in the Trump era. In Sunday night’s debate, Bernie Sanders had a double task. For the believers, to make a last pitch that he is the better candidate (which, in terms of the presidency, he clearly is). For the realists, his task was to push the inevitable nominee, Joe Biden, more to the left.
