Human Events Editor in Chief Raheem Kassam exposed a major Fake News story on Twitter.
The Sun originally published a piece claiming that Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage was “trapped on Brexit bus due to people armed with milkshakes.”
However, Kassam, who was at this event, presented a different account. He set the record straight in a tweet thread.
Kassam encouraged his followers to tweet at Tom Newton Dunn, the editor of The Sun, and expose this error because Dunn had blocked Kassam.
The Human Events editor provided some context to this event:
After several walking campaign stops (including, bravely, between a McDonalds and a Burger King) @Nigel_Farage was due to pull up to supporters on his bus and do media interviews from the top deck. He was never scheduled to get off.
It was established that Farage would not get off the Brexit bus as he and his associates campaigned throughout Kent. Kassam noted this:
We all knew that because 5 mins before we arrived we were told by organizers “we don’t need to get off, we’re not getting off”.
Regardless, Kassam got off the bus to interact with people in the crowd.
I got off anyway, and mingled in the crowd. Did some selfies. Then I spotted the so called milkshake assassins. They hadn’t “surrounded” the bus. They were 2 rather polite kids and one mid aged guy who were quite nice when engaged in debate. We shook hands.
There was a Periscope video of this interaction as well.
The supposed milkshakes that The Sun discovered were actually empty frappuccino cups.
You can also see their “milkshakes” which were actually frappuccinos I think (important distinction) were basically empty. They had no intention of throwing them, and everyone knew that.
The Sun allegedly quoted the Brexit bus driver, Michael Botton, but Kassam asserts that they never interviewed him during this event. The Sun was only told that Farage was not getting off the bus.
Kassam made it clear that there was no “milkshake army” of protestors like The Sun depicted.
After Kassam left the area, Farage actually got off the bus to pose for selfies.
In a final tweet, Kassam pointed out that The Sun editor, Tom Newton Dunn, is the son of former Member of the European Parliament Bill Newton Dunn. Bill Newton Dunn was a member of the Conservative Party who later switched to the Liberal Democrats party. This coverage of the Brexit event suggests some degree of political bias given that the Lib Dems are only at 19 percent in the polls, while the Brexit Party is firmly in first place at 37 percent.
If these polls stay intact come election time on May 23, 2019, Farage’s Brexit Party will be the largest single party in the European Parliament.
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
