How Anti-Gun Slimeballs Control The Narrative with Biased Mainstream Media

Afghanistan Gun Buy Back

U.S.A.-( I want to talk a little bit about Biden pulling the nomination of David Chipman for the Director of the ATF. I don’t want to talk so much about the actual pulling of the nomination. I want to speak on the media’s response to it being pulled, and I want to pull the curtain back a little bit and show you how anti-gun advocacy groups and the mainstream media cross paths.

You can’t help but noticed the narrative about the Chipman nomination being pulled that is being peddled in the mainstream media’s talking points all looks the same. If you caught that you would not be wrong. It does look the same.

  • The narrative isn’t that Chipman was a terrible nominee.
  • Or he was a partisan hack.
  • It wasn’t that Chipman has a history of making racist comments about other special agents.
  • And it wasn’t that Chipman was so incompetent at his job that he might have lost his duty gun.

According to the mainstream media, the gun lobby’s power forced Senators not to support the Chipman nomination. It was that somehow the gun lobby got Democrats to pull their support for Chipman?

According to these reports, Chipman was a dedicated and exceptional former ATF Special agent that only cared about stopping violence. These mainstream media pendants report that Chipman would have been a perfect ATF Director.

Now don’t get me wrong. The gun lobby (you and me) did have a lot to do with getting Biden to pull the Chipman nomination once it became clear he didn’t have the votes to be confirmed. But it was not because the gun lobby (you and me) made up some false narrative about Chipman. The gun lobby (you and me) just shined a light on all the issues of the Chipman nomination. My grandmother used to say that sunlight was the best disinfectant, and the Chipman nomination process showed why that statement still rings true.

So how do these so-called journalists all get fed the same wrong conclusion?

What happens is anti-gun groups send out talking points and press releases to friendly media sources. A Lot of times, anti-gun groups make phone calls to reporters, they send out emails. These anti-gun groups help the mainstream media shape the narrative.

Let’s be honest. Groups like Everytown and Moms Demand Action are run more like a corporate PR agency rather than an advocacy group made up of real Americans. Their bankrolls put ours to shame. They can hire ad agencies and consultants to get their message out. Plus, most in the mainstream media fall on their side of the fence of the gun debate.

The biggest reason is that mainstream journalists are under immense pressure to hit deadlines, and here comes someone willing to hand over something that would complete 90% of their work. There is no need to look up stats or facts. Even the quotes are right there. All they have to do is rephrase the release or talking points here or there. The anti-gun gun groups aren’t going to publicize that these reporters plagiarized them. In fact, they want the media to plagiarize them. That is how they can control the narrative.

We live in a 24-hour media cycle. Media outlets want to be first or as close to first as possible to break a story. Instead of these journalists doing their own research, they just take what is given to them at face value. The gun lobby to them is the boogeyman.

Let’s give them what they want. Since you and I are in the gun lobby, let’s be the boogeyman. We can’t compete solely by providing money to gun rights groups, although that does help. Our side doesn’t have billionaires funding our efforts to defend gun rights. But we have something they don’t have. We have a true grassroots community of passionate gun owners.

What scares a politician is a pissed-off constituency. Their grassroots efforts are AstroTurf. All they have is smoke and mirrors. Our power is in our grassroots efforts. They want to hold onto power, and that is where we come in to push them in the right direction.

This is a Digital War & We Are Winning!

The meme is a powerful weapon. We need to keep hitting back on social media with forceful comments, your hardest-hitting memes, and citizen journalism to expose their lies and inform our friends and family of the truth. All to counteract the anti-gun groups’ lies and spin that infects the mainstream fake-news media. We need to engage with people one on one and explain the stance of the gun-rights community. We have the power to shape the narrative in the minds of those around us, and we need to use that power.

Thease paid simballs are trying to control the narrative, and we won’t let them do that.

If you’ve read Orwell’s 1984. You have to see the correlation between It and what’s happening now. Orwell wrote It as a warning against not only Tyrannical Government, but also the Ideal Citizen(BLM ANTIFA) who does the Government’s work.The Liberal Democrat Leadership has made it their Playbook. Think Speak, Political Correctness Cancel Culture, Internet Banishment, War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength. No need for a War against Society. When it’s easier to destroy from within.


California just overwhelmingly voted for self imposed serfdom.


Oddly, I just posted the following on another Ammoland issue:

Soylent Green, 1984, The Time Machine, Animal Farm, The Distinguished Gentleman, The morning After, all video “Cliff Notes” to what is going on around us, yet most are blind to the reality.


Atlas Shrugged


I think they read 1984 in school and made it their play book, but thy forgot the 2%. That is all it took to defeat the king(we did get help from his enemies). we have people say lies about the founders blacks were not excluded slavery was not color based at first it was financial (poor with debt) . best example of inclusion is from battle of breeds hill , commander singled out exceptional soldiers, one was black farmer (there were three black minute men that fought at breeds hill) there was also free blacks that fought on the governments… Read more »

The main stream media went from being a reliable news source to totally FAKE NEWS and it has been thier own doing by promoting false stories and false narratives . These idiots all have zero credibility and they exposed themselves as people who falsify stories and lie to the American people daily . They have proven they hate us having rights like the second amendment and free speech to counter thier lies with . They fear a free and armed society as it threatens thier ability to control the masses with thier lies .


I watch some news from Australia and the BBC occasionally, and even though those countries tend to be liberal in their politics, at least they are honest about reporting the news and both countries routinely ridicule the American press for their biased reporting and lack of professional journalism and the way they went after Trump and how they do their best to support Biden and “spin” his gaffs and obvious mental lapses with lame excuses.


the media has ALWAYS been in bed with government, uss maine blows up ,us news papers blame spanish government , remember the maine! they start a war based on a lie. yellow journalism is the norm, there has been a few good reporters through the years, but usually shouted down by big money. The reason there are sooo many conspiracy theories, is the lies that are printed as news dont even come close to matching the facts


And, don’t forget the sinking of the Lusitania which was the excuse for the US entry into WW 1! The Press dutifully reported that it was NOT carrying munitions, that it was just coal dust that caused the secondary explosions. And who knows who was really behind 9/11?


I am surprised the grocery store tabloids aren’t suing the MSM over the abuses of falsified gossip and content usage?


Who’s the bigger doofus? Biden or Chipman? Both? But not to worry, Biden will detail John Horseface Kerry to negotiate with the Taliban for the stranded Americans. A couple of midnight flights of aircraft with pallets of cash should work. And Kerry has the necessary experience.


No offense horses


Take note how the Progressive New Left ‘wins’ arguments. They don’t argue. They simply silence opposition and do so under the guise of being nice. How do they do it? Well, first they employ Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. Rather than debate you on the merits of your case they simply vilify, shout down and then silence you. Republicans assume the John Boehner fetal position defense when attacked in this manner and always have. But the other form of silencing, the mass media, social media attack on debate is much more subtle. Look at what one of the major portals,… Read more »

What scares a politician is indeed a pissed off constituency John, but we are not going to reach them through the conventional means of communication. Those same groups you name as being the ones who are the anti-gun boogey man are in near complete control of all information that gets released in this country. The only way we will get this current crop of government thugs attention is to start erecting a field of gallows on the White House lawn.

Monkey Mouse

We can start at the state level – to make examples of certain regimes.


Yes. In some cases. But in others, like California you simply need to write it off. Californians just voted to impose serfdom on themselves. Speaking as someone who spent most of his adult life in the 3rd World I tell you the truth. If surrounded by a majority of willing serf you cannot stand against power. Flee. Refugee. That is your only hope. That goes for those trapped in Progressive Utopias like California. You are outnumbered and outgunned by Progressive Zombies. Catch the next boat out.


How about city and county level? Do we allow them to keep up the corruption?


they are giving it a try in comifornia


Derail the crazy train.. Why no coverage about Kamala when running for Pres and again after chosen as VP nominee? Arcticle 2 Section I of The Constitution of the United States says, among other requirements for public officials “….No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States….”.… Read more »


MSM controlled by 6 corporations, propaganda legalized since Smith/Mundt Act of 2012, False Flags w/ Crisis Actors, Military Generals continually lying to it’s cadre of SOULdiers & populace & real LEA’s/LEO’s participating in them w/o any conscious moral objection how could & why would any independent thinker not recoil & be concerned ?

The playing field is like playing craps w/ loaded dice. Twitter/Farcebook/Yahoo/NYT/WP/CNN /ABC/CBS/NBC are all CIA bought manufactured media & journalism. Don’t look over here, we want you to be thinking this & looking here. All of it is evil & corrupt.

At least if there was a gun buy back in AFG, the government really did “sell” them the guns.


john, john, john, they are not journalists, they are propagandists, pure and simple. joseph goebbels would be extremely proud that his ideology of indoctrinating the populace was so successful. media outlets overseas have more accurate coverage of happenings here in America. the propagandists here lie about things here and overseas, they are liars. memes are good, sometimes great, but talking with and asking people questions who side with the gun control side is better. ask them who has the moral authority to tell you if, or what you can defend your self from harm. bring up anti-gun laws were used… Read more »
