Gabe Gutierrez, an NBC News correspondent, gave misleading accounts of videos that he took at the Lobby Day gun rights rally in Richmond, Virginia.
Gutierrez initially posted a video of protestors supposedly chanting “we will not comply”, when, in reality, there protestors were reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.
Gutierrez tweeted, “Chants of ‘we will not comply’ from gun rights protesters in Richmond.”

The NBC correspondent faced instant criticism from Twitter observers.
Matt Whitlock, an advisor for the National Republican Senatorial Committee, fired back at Gutierrez’s video, tweeting “At some point this starts to feel like a concerted effort by major media companies to smear. Yesterday Ben Collins with a viral tweet calling this a ‘white nationalist rally.’ Today this guy tweets a video of the pledge of allegiance saying it’s a ‘we will not comply’ chant.”
Honestly either this guy shared the wrong video or just doesn’t recognize the pledge of allegiance. Either way, not great.

Gutierrez attempted to save face by posting a video in which he stated “Earlier posted video of Pledge of Allegiance. For those who’ve asked, here’s the video of ‘We will not comply.’ Taken seconds apart.”

Although he corrected himself, it’s clear that mainstream journalists are heading into this event to paint false narratives.
This is part of a larger plot to paint Second Amendment activists as extremists.
This path won’t be easy, so they’ll try to start off by misleading the public and creating false narratives about Second Amendment supporters.
Then, they will proceed to use conventional legislative efforts to attack gun rights.
BLP covered a recent story where an NBC news journalist defamed many gun rights activists by labeling them “white nationalists.”
The story can be read below:
An NBC News journo shamefully defamed thousands of Virginians who plan on attending an upcoming Second Amendment Rally at the state capital, claiming that they were convening for a “white nationalist rally” on a Sunday tweet.
Monday’s Second Amendment Rally is expected to draw thousands of gun rights supporters. The event has nothing to do with white nationalism, and instead is occurring to protest Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s wide-reaching gun control package he’s seeking to impose upon the people of the state.
In Ben Collins’ astoundingly dishonest tweet, he even had the audacity to warn other mainstream media “journalists” to avoid reporting falsely when covering the event.
After being roundly dunked upon for his dishonest claim about the upcoming rally, Collins deleted his initial tweet. But he’s still trying to make and extremely dubious connection between the rally and white nationalism, as seen in a subsequent tweet.
Hi everybody! I’m deleting a tweet so I can be super clear about tomorrow’s rally in Virginia.
The Lobby Day protest is and has traditionally been a gun rights rally, but white nationalists, including militant group The Base, have been planning violent action at the event.

Governor Northam himself has utilized conspiracy theories about the event to seize emergency powers, unilaterally banning open carry from the state capital on the basis of a supposed violent criminal presence.
The fearmongering over the upcoming Second Amendment rally could prove to have consequences, as some gun rights advocates and supporters of the movement to overturn Northam’s planned gun control have warned of possible infiltration of the rally.
Some conservatives fear that professional agitators and rent-a-mob types will arrive on the scene with the intention of discrediting peaceful Second Amendment demonstrators. Such a development would prove to be a major convenience for gun control advocates such as Northam and Collins, who would love nothing more than a chance to slander pro-gun Virginians as a violent mob.
Tensions are high as patriots move ahead with their plans for the capital rally on Monday.
Mexico is in Third Place for Wuhan Virus Deaths Yet Democrats Still Want to Open the Floodgates to Mass Migration
According to the John Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center, Mexico is ranked in third place for Wuhan virus deaths.
The country has 462,690 confirmed cases, with 50,517 people having died from the virus. This puts Mexico’s case fatality rate at 10.9 percent
According to a report from Breitbart News, Mexican officials assert that the “high number of fatalities is due to the fact that people are fat and eat junk food.”
There is speculation that the numbers disclosed by the Mexican government have been filled with cases of rampant undercounting. Some officials believe that the numbers could be three times as high as those officially recorded, according to a Breitbart Texas report.
As of August 7, 2020, the following countries led the way in terms of Wuhan virus related deaths.
- United States — 160,104 fatalities
- Brazil — 98,493 fatalities
- Mexico — 50,517 fatalities
Although the conventional narrative is that high diabetes and obesity rates contributed to Mexico’s high Wuhan virus death count, Ildefonso Ortiz of Breitbart News pointed to information from the government epidemiology oversight database which “revealed that in Mexico City, many of the fatal patients were actually otherwise-healthy young adults who did not have access to a ventilator” according to a Forbes report.
Regardless of what the root causes of Mexico’s Wuhan virus death are, the U.S. needs to get serious about fully securing its border.
Let’s face it, Mexico is a failed state and its problems will inevitably make their way to the U.S. if the border remains relaxed.
With Democrat candidate Joe Biden calling for radical open borders policies, the U.S. is on the cusp of unleashing a tidal wave of social and public health dysfunction should he beat President Trump in November.
The Trump administration needs to get serious about this matter and completely secure the border while exposing Biden’s mass migration radicalism.
