Dead Not Counted Before Liberals Started Lying About Florida School Shooting

Sadly the country suffered another mass shooting in a primary school, this time in a high school in Florida. Unfortunately, the blood was still flowing, the victims had not even been identified, and the suspect had yet to be caught before liberals were purposefully misreporting on the incident and flat out lying in order to sell their anti-gun, anti-America, left-wing agenda.

One lie in particular made the rounds among many of the leftist media’s “real” journalists. As the crime in Florida unfolded, these “journalists” began Tweeting out that the attack at a high school in Parkland, Florida, is the “18th school shooting this year.”

This lie and ones like it appeared on several Twitter feed. Here are a few examples:

But this statistic of anywhere from 12 to 18 the media keeps using is simply a lie. Certainly ONE shooting at a school is one too many, but in truth there has been more like 6 school shootings with injuries this year.

According to the Daily Mail’s David Martosko, the numbers everyone on the left keep throwing around have been “cooked.”

“Because the numbers are cooked,” Martosko Tweeted on Wednesday. “Not that this is any better, but it’s the sixth shooting to injure students. Some of the other ones were like BB guns fired at school bus windows, etc. Again, 1 is too many. But we lose credibility when we tell unnecessary lies.”

There is another problem with the media’s statistic. It is sold to them by the anti-gun group called Everytown for Gun Safety which is funded by billionaire left-winger Michael Boomberg. You couldn’t find a more biased source.

The group makes no distinctions if the “gun” used is actually a gun, it adds suicides and gang warfare, and it also counts shootings that were near a school even if the shootings had nothing at all to do with kids, school personnel or on school property.

As to the facts on the ground in Florida, as news emerges it appears that the killer is a young high school dropout named Nikolas (or Nicholas) Cruz. He’s a 19-year-old youngster who was kicked out of school because he was a violent troublemaker, a disrupter, and a mental misfit.

According to the Miami Herald, even when he was allowed in school Cruz had been barred from using a backpack because school officials feared that he would try to smuggle weapons into the school.

“We were told last year that he wasn’t allowed on campus with a backpack on him,” math teacher Jim Gard, who said Cruz who had Cruz in his class last year, told the Herald. “There were problems with him last year threatening students, and I guess he was asked to leave campus.”

One student even told the media that kids knew that this Cruz psycho was the one who would likely snap and turn on them.

Why nothing was done about the kid is a mystery at this point.

But the left kept spinning their tales, anyway, despite the lack of information about the crime.

In other cases — and again before we had any real facts at all about the shooting — liberals began beating their war drums against the Second Amendment and screeching about taking away our Constitutional right to bear arms.

Democrat leadership was quick to push their agenda on Twitter:

And like good little mindnumbed soldiers the others fell right into line:

Senator Chris Murphy (D, CT) even ran like his hair was on fire to the floor of the U.S. Senate to try and turn this crime into a political “win” for his agenda.

So, yeah, ghoulish Democrats making bank on the bodies of dead kids. Why are we not surprised?
