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!
Not sure what the publication was, but at this point does it really matter? pic.twitter.com/FfbplRFJhV

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.

New York Times Writer Blames Evangelical Christians for Chinese Coronavirus
Not China’s Communist Party.
A New York Times writer published a column largely assigning blame for America’s Chinese coronavirus epidemic on Evangelical Christians.
In Stewart’s column, titled ‘The Religious Right’s Hostility to Science is Crippling Our Coronavirus Response,’ she frames conservative Christians for a supposed lacking national effort to contain the disease. Stewart alleges that Christians within the administration are preventing the federal government from recognizing ‘science,’ repeating a trope long alleged by liberals that their political opponents are supposedly ignorant of the discipline.
In the article, Stewart claims that “Donald Trump rose to power with the determined assistance of a movement that denies science, bashes government and prioritized loyalty over professional expertise. In the current crisis, we are all reaping what that movement has sown.”
She fails that recognize that scientific experts on viral outbreaks such as Dr. Anthony Fauci have informed the federal government’s response since the beginning of the crisis.
Stewart fails to mention that it was progressive liberals across the world who largely opposed international travel bans, a scientifically verifiable means of virus transmission and spread. The European Union lagged well behind the United States and Canada in placing curbs on travel across borders.
Perhaps most egregiously, she fails to even so much as assign any culpability for America’s coronavirus epidemic on the Chinese Communist Party, which failed to so much as even admit the scale of the problem as the disease first took the form of a true public health pandemic in China. The CCP’s negligent cover-up of the coronavirus epidemic in undoubtedly the most ‘unscientific’ governmental approach to the virus, with grave consequences. And China’s authoritarian leaders are by no means conservative Christians.
Stewart’s reaching move to blame Evangelicals for the coronavirus outbreak in America is merely a reactionary take from a cultural liberal seeking to impute political commentary in the midst of a pandemic.
