The Fake News Media Thinks Mass Murderers Are Perfectly Sane People

Published

on

The Texas Tribune is downplaying the insanity of the El Paso mass shooter.

In an article titled “Greg Abbott invoked mental illness after the El Paso shooting. There’s been no indication that was a factor”, the Tribune tried to spin a politically correct narrative on the El Paso shooting.

The Tribune played their first PC card by invoking race in one of their tweets promoting the article.

Trending: Mitt Romney Admits: Trump Likely to Be Re-Elected

It tweeted, “A white gunman killed 22 Hispanic shoppers at an El Paso Walmart and injured another two dozen. Trump was quick to highlight mental health issues. There’s been no indication that was a factor.”

The response on Twitter was fierce.

One poster said “Sure, perfectly sane individuals mow down crowds of people all the time. SMH.”

Another poster said, “Texas Tribune you have said some really ridiculous things in the past, but this one hands-down tops them all. You discredit journalism, fairness, balance, and non-objectivity with this insane line. At least with a newspaper I could still wrap fish.”

The Tribune covered one of Abbott’s speeches on mental health following the shooting.

Abbot declared that “Bottom line is mental health is a large contributor to any type of violence or shooting violence, and the state of Texas this past session passed a lot of legislation and provided funding for the state to better address that challenge.”

The Tribune described the El Paso shooting as “an act of domestic terrorism fueled by a white supremacist ideology.”

It also highlighted how U.S. congresswoman Veronica Escobar, a Democrat from El Paso was “visibly stiffened, shaking her head slightly” when Abbott discussed the topic of mental health.

At a vigil in El Paso, Escobar went off on people who bring up mental illness as a factor contributing to mass shootings:

“I would also call on those who use mental illness as an excuse to please stop. Please stop. It further stigmatizes those who truly suffer from mental illness, and the fact of the matter is people with mental illness are far more likely to be victims of violent crime, not perpetrators.”

The Tribune spent the rest of its time in the article focusing on racism and the lack of gun safety as the primary factors behind mass shootings like the one in El Paso.

It highlighted at the end how one woman at a vigil “held up a sign written in bold, red marker: “Racism is not mental illness.””

Although mass shootings are sensitive matters, we must have frank discussions that deal with uncomfortable topics.

Saying that certain topics like mental health are off limits will not get us anywhere.

The shooter’s manifesto was filled with rants ranging from topics such as environmentalism to which firearms are most effective for killing Hispanic immigrants. This indicates that he was already going insane. At the end of the day, sane people don’t kill 22 people in cold blood.

The Tribune should take that into consideration the next time it tries to turn this into a discussion about race.

Tim Tebow Finds a Higher Calling in Pro-Life Causes Rather than Sports Trophies

Published

NRL News Today reported on Kansans for Life annual Valentine’s Day banquet held earlier this month.

Nearly 1,200 people were in attendance at this event.

The theme of this event was LIV-ing in victory, which referred to Super Bowl LIV.

Lamar Hunt, Jr., one of the owners of the Super Bowl Champs, the Kansas City Chiefs, was the Master of Ceremonies for the event. In his opening remarks, he said:

I do not think it is a cliché to say we are in a life and death battle for the truth and authentic dignity of the human person. We need your full attention. You need to drop what you’re doing and join us, and this can be in so many ways: prayer, assistance to those in need, emails, phone calls, in-person meetings. Get educated about what we’re fighting about here. Really listen in and tune in.

Then Hunt said, “Please do something about it. Pray. Take action. If you don’t know what to do, ask somebody. Place this as a major priority in your life.”

Hunt concluded by saying that he often heard the phrase “Live in victory” from another resident at the retirement home where he visits his mother.

The main highlight of that evening was the keynote speech by Tim Tebow, former quarterback for the Denver Broncos.

“It is such an honor to be here,” Tebow said as he thanked the other speakers coming before him for their work to protect the unborn.

Tebow praised Hunt for “having courage in the face of a lot of other people who don’t have it and for your willingness to be up here and support this organization.”

“It really does mean a lot more than winning the Super Bowl,” Tebow remarked. He continued, “One day, when you look back and people are talking about you and they say Oh my gosh what are you going to be known for? Are you going to say Super Bowl, or we saved a lot of babies?”

Tebow asserted that Kansans for Life is not a philanthropy.

It’s a rescue mission. You know why we call it a rescue mission? Because when we say that, it puts a timeline on it.

When’s the last time you heard a rescue mission taking place in a month or a few years. No, a rescue mission means now. It gives you a sense of urgency. It says we have to go not because it’s our time, but because it’s their time. … I have to live a sense of urgency because while I might have time, they don’t.

Later, Tebow turned toward Hunt and Chiefs punter, Dustin Colquitt, who was also attending the event, he told them it was “awesome they won the Super Bowl.”

“It’s amazing. What an accomplishment! But you know the best part of that accomplishment is that it gets you an even bigger platform.” That platform, Tebow declared, can be used to support the pro-life movement.

“You see, my mom 32 years ago had doctors tell her she needed to abort me because if she didn’t, it was going to cost her life. And they didn’t even believe that I was a baby. They thought I was a tumor,” Tebow said.

Tebow jokingly recounted that as the baby of a family of 5 siblings, he was called “Timmy the tumor” by his siblings.

On a more serious note, Tebow said, “to make a long story short, when I was born, they found out the placenta wasn’t actually attached. So, the doctor looked at my mom after 37 years of being a doctor and said, ‘This is the biggest miracle I’ve ever seen because I’m not sure how he’s alive.’ … I’m so grateful that my mom trusted God with my life and her life.”

In 1986, Tebow’s father, Robert, begged the Lord to give him one more child. His father said, “I prayed for a preacher and got a quarterback.”

Tebow finished the event by stating that, “What you’re doing here matters. You’re fighting for life. You’re fighting for people that can’t fight for themselves. And my question to you is: Are you willing to stand up in the face of persecution, in the face of adversity, in the face of criticism, when other people are going to say it’s not worth it, when other people won’t stand beside you? Maybe not everybody is going to be with you. Will you stand up for what’s right?”
