A prominent politician once told me that there were two kinds of politicians – those who spoke the truth (a minority) and those who exaggerated or lied to justify their position (the majority). He was a man who spoke the truth and that cost him a presidential election, while his opponent lied to everyone and got elected and then sent nearly 50,000 Americans to their death in Vietnam after promising he wouldn’t.
Earlier this week, 28-year-old Democrat upstart and socialist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez upset 10-term Democrat Rep. Joe Crowley, in the primary election. Now the young woman with a very big mouth, is using that mouth spread fake news or lies about mass shootings in the United States in her effort to justify her anti-gun position.
(Breitbart) – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Candidate for U.S. Congress (D-NY), reacted to the lives lost in Annapolis by claiming the attack marked the 195th mass shooting this year.
She shocked the nation with a primary victory over Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY-14) on June 26, and is now spreading stats on mass shootings that are exponentially higher than actual shooting figures support.
This is our nation’s 195th mass shooting – this year.
The New York Times
Gunshots were fired at the Capital Gazette, a newspaper in Annapolis, Md., according to a police spokesman and multiple journalists inside the newsroom https://nyti.ms/2KiPO5R
The claim of over 150 mass shootings in America so far this year is way over exaggerated as it usually is every year of late. According to one liberal source, there has been less than 10 actual mass shootings in 2018 and that’s counting the school shootings. In 2105, liberals claimed there were 355 mass shootings in America when in reality the number was also less than 10, but only 10 mass shootings a year doesn’t fit their cries for more gun control.
