Calling crusading journalists on their bullshit

With the gun control debate in full flight in the US some journalists and publishers have been very vocal in their support of gun control. One paper even went so far as to publish all the names and addresses of legal gun owners online… apparently in the interests of transparency.

Watch what happens though when they are asked to put their online and printed words into action. Watch at around the 5 minute mark when the publisher of the Journal News who published the names of gun owners hides behind armed security guards. The hypocrisy is astonishing. 

Posing as “Citizens Against Senseless Violence,” we visit the homes of journalists working for Westchester Journal News, MSNBC, and the Star-Ledger. We also visited the home of Eric Holder. None will take our signs that say “THIS HOME IS PROUDLY GUN FREE.”

Since these reporters and editors did not consider it a violation of the privacy and safety of others to reveal which homes have guns and which homes don’t, we went to see which of them would be willing to put a sign up publicly declaring their homes to be gun-free zones. While we didn’t find any members of the media with the strength of their convictions, we did find quite a few guns, and some good explanations for why they might be necessary….. Guns for Me, but not for Thee.

Crusading hypocritical journalists and publishers are well and truly called out.

    This shows you how far adrift the Americans are from the real debate, these issues are always sensationlised, spun, and warped into each little factions take on the issue, and without fail, supported by a gullible media. NZ has it sorted compared to these idiots in this clip, with the vetting of the licence firearm owners, and more to the point, fairly good reasons to own E Cat firearms (AR15 type fireamrs). It works and works well compared to this shambles.

    Karma can be a bitch.

    Tho` journalism and hypocrisy are hardly mutually exclusive.

    It is GREAT to see hypocritical leftards *busted* like this!
    It reminds me of some Labour MPs who waffle on about “the poor” but who would never in a month of Sundays be caught actually *living* with said “poor”. No – it’s the top-of-the-market suburbs for them.

    The left honestly believe their hypocrisy is justified if the ideology wins at the end of the day. Pointing out their hypocrisy is like water off a ducks back, these arseholes couldn’t give a fat rats toss. The only thing that keeps these aholes from destroying themselves is the right. If the world was left in the hands of the left human life would long since disappeared from the Earth. Imagine millions of the fools fighting to get on top of the dung heap.
