JT Lewis, a school safety advocate who pushes for armed guards in public schools, slammed fake news after Huffington Post wrongly claimed he supported gun control legislation.
Only days before meeting with President Donald J. Trump to discuss the importance of securing schools with armed guards, Lewis posted a tweet remembering the tragic loss he felt after losing his brother in the 2014 Sandy Hook school shooting.
It’s been six years (12/14) since Sandy Hook. Jesse has now been gone as long as he was alive. The best way to honor the victims is to make sure your local schools are secure so it doesn’t happen again!

Huffington Post, with its typical tunnel vision, assumed that when Lewis stressed the importance of making sure “local schools are secure,” he was advocating gun control legislation. Lewis discovered the article months later, and slammed the article, which got his name wrong as well as the point of his tweet, as a “prime example of Fake News.”
Prime example of fake news here:
1) Article got my name wrong
2) Claims my December 14th tweet to honor my brother by calling for school safety was actually about gun laws!

Showing their complete lack of investigative scruples, the Huffington Post journalist apparently failed to realize that Lewis is not only an advocate of armed guards in schools who never spoke or wrote about dismantling the Second Amendment in an attempt to make schools safer, he met with President Trump who agreed with his stance on the critical issue. President Trump then invited Lewis to the Oval Office for a photo.
Underscoring his pro-second amendment, pro-armed guard views, Lewis has also slammed Democrat Senators Chris Murphey and Dick Blumenthal for refusing to acknowledge the merits of armed guards in schools, saying they are “bashing” his “hard work.”
We joined the President for the release of his School Safety Report, in which our ideas were not only included, but focused on. And all I’ve heard from CT’s (my) two senators are tweets bashing our hard work. If you need clarification, just ask. (@ChrisMurphyCT @SenBlumenthal)

Perhaps it should be no surprise that Huffington Post was hit with a round of layoffs at the same time as Buzzfeed and other fake news outlets earlier this year.
Reuters Calls Louisville Riots Where Cops Were Shot by Black Lives Matter Terrorists ‘Mostly Peaceful’
After cops were shot in Louisville during widespread Black Lives Matter rioting on Wednesday night, Reuters had the audacity to claim that the demonstrations were “mostly peaceful.”
Demonstrations in Louisville wore on past nightfall in defiance of a 9 p.m. curfew and remained mostly peaceful until several gunshots rang out in the midst of a skirmish between protesters and heavily armed police https://t.co/lvEd2XalpJ pic.twitter.com/L8GrPNrwCg

In the Reuters article linked in the tweet, the shooting of the police officers was buried in the article. Instead, editors focused on the race of the cops who returned fire to Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend after he shot at them while they were carrying out a lawful warrant at his home.
“Two white policemen who fired into the apartment of Breonna Taylor, a Black medical worker, will not be prosecuted for her death because their use of force was justified, and a third was charged with endangering her neighbors, Kentucky’s attorney general said on Wednesday,” they wrote.
Reuters buried the lead, opting to demonize the “heavily armed police” who sent the “crowd scurrying for cover,” even though it was the Black Lives Matter/ANTIFA terrorists who shot the law enforcement officers.
Big League Politics reported on the decision by Kentucky officials to charge one of the three officers involved in the shooting death of Taylor:
On September 23, 2020, Jefferson County Judge Annie O’Connell announced that fired detective Brett Hankinson will be indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment for his actions on the night of Breonna Taylor’s death.
Hankison had previously admitted to shooting blindly. Some of those shots were fired into neighboring apartments not into Breonna Taylor’s where her boyfriend had opened fire onto police.
Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly, the other two officers involved in a serving a search warrant on the night that Taylor was killed, did not receive any charges.
The city of Louisville was placed under a state of emergency on September 22, when city officials shutdown a significant portion of the city perimeter to traffic. The majority of administrative building and other businesses were boarded up prior to the decision. Louisville has been rocked by riots related to Taylor’s death in March. These riots have been occurring for over 100 days and have resulted in a number of deaths and heated confrontations with law enforcement.
Starting on the night of September 23, there will be a 72-hour curfew in Louisville. The curfew will not apply to people partaking in essential travel, which includes work-related purposes or medical attention. Kentucky National Guard members will be deployed to the city for the purpose of maintaining public order…
Conservatives and nationalists should make it a point to promote healthy debate, while establishing a baseline of public security, to ensure that the country does not spiral further out of control in such times of instability.
