Gun Control Propaganda
Yes you heard me correctly. Take off your blinders and listen up. Pravda…I said Pravda, a Russian newspaper got it absolutely right about the deceit and lies disseminated by the media and our elected politicians in the immediate aftermath of the Charleston shootings. There is no evidence to support some tsunami of violent behavior occurring in the US.
Twice as many people have been killed by drunk drivers in the last 30 years but you hear no one calling for liquor to be made illegal. This and many other such attempts are nothing less than the elites determined and relentless plan to disarm the american republic.
From the Russian article you will read the following quote- “The inconvenient reality regarding the true nature of violence and its relationship with guns is entirely sidestepped by the gun control agenda, primarily because the gun control agenda is about disarming the American public thus removing an obstacle toward totalitarianism, not to preserve innocent lives.” How many people in America believe that a Russian newspaper could be a receptacle of truth when our own media has been co-opted by the powers that be to disseminate only that which agrees with their agenda; such is the upside down world we live in.
Chaos in the US: Mass Shootings vs Propaganda
Via english.pravda.ru In the immediate aftermath of the shooting, a familiar, shameful charade of exploitation unfolded yet again, seeking to reassert the “gun control” agenda amid both national public opinion and across America’s legislative bodies.
Yet the engineered, concerted, deceitful propaganda campaign launched by the corporate media and America’s political circles fails to put into perspective the recent shooting and the greater “gun control” debate.
Instead, a mad rush has ensued to exploit anger, sorrow, and fear to once again attempt to snatch from responsible Americans their right to bear arms based on the criminal actions of a single individual.
574 people have been killed in mass shootings for the last 30 years. However, 10,076 citizens are reported killed by drunk drivers. That is about 20 times more people killed in a single year due to drunk driving than in the past 30 years due to mass shootings.
When comparing two nations, the United Kingdom and Japan, whose populations are for all intents and purposes “disarmed,” we still find immense, seemingly inexplicable disparity in the number of homicides. Despite both nations being disarmed and having almost no “gun-related homicides,” according to UN statistics, Japan and the UK still have an astronomical gap in homicide rates. Why?
A visit to either country reveals an entirely different culture, education system, infrastructure, and socioeconomic paradigm. This is why despite Japan having a much larger population, even total homicides are lower than the comparatively more violent but less populated United Kingdom – with homicide rates in the UK nearly 3 times higher than those in Japan.
According to the UN’s study, which includes the most recent annual data available, Japan, with a population of roughly 130 million, had a mere 506 homicides over the stretch of a single year. Conversely, the UK, with less than half of Japan’s population (53 million) had 722 homicides.
The United States suffers from more poverty, more disparity in income, more blight and stagnation across its economy and education system – particularly in the inner city and the south – than even the UK. This is why the United States is more violent than other industrialized nations, not because of the availability of weapons.
The inconvenient reality regarding the true nature of violence and its relationship with guns is entirely sidestepped by the gun control agenda, primarily because the gun control agenda is about disarming the American public thus removing an obstacle toward totalitarianism, not to preserve innocent lives.
More on the Presstitute US Media
Paul Craig Roberts has a lot to say about the corrupt US media. Despite sterling credentials he has been completely blackballed and silenced from any main stream media appearances quite literally because he is a truth teller. If you are an American who is interested in the truth, this should disturb you. In a recent article he laments the following,
“It is such an unequal fight that I wonder at my participation. My participation has reduced my income and my social acceptance in influential circles. Try to imagine a former Wall Street Journal editor and Assistant Secretary of the Treasury who cannot publish in the mainstream media or appear on a TV program, except to be denounced in absentia.”
Read his latest article entitled “To fight or Not To Fight” and let him know that Americans are waking up even if it is only a tenth. Total control of the media has taken place in the last decade or so and it is wise to listen to those who have no compelling financial interest or have suffered financially for the sake of speaking the truth. Paul Craig Roberts and other like him have shipwrecked careers to preserve their own integrity. They stand in contrast to the sellouts who enrich themselves to supervise and preside over the the country’s demise while defrauding and bankrupting the little guys who make America.
