Forget the facts, wait until biased media coverage has made everyone really angry, and then blame the situation on political enemies for the win. That folks, is the regressive way to achieve their ends. Weasel Zippers has more…

Newly uncovered Democratic anti-NRA talking points urge anti-gun advocates and politicians to hype high-profile gun incidents like the Florida slaying of Trayvon Martin to win support for new gun control laws.
In talking points likely followed by top Democratic leaders including President Obama after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings in December, the anti-gun “guide” urged gun foes to speak out when a shooting “creates a unique climate” to shout down the National Rifle Association.
“The most powerful time to communicate is when concern and emotions are running at their peak,” said the 80-page document titled “Preventing Gun Violence Through Effective Messaging,” and produced by three Democratic firms led by the polling and research outfit Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research.
The guide was produced in 2012, before the Sandy Hook shootings. According to a report posted on NRA News, it was developed to help anti-gun advocates in Washington State’s effort to control gun purchases, though it clearly has national overtones and uses, especially as groups like Mayors Against Illegal Guns – a Greenberg Quinlan Rosner client — expand their fight for gun control.
So, let’s break this down…
1. A black teen, Trayvon Martin, is in the process of beating a “white Hispanic,” George Zimmerman, to death, when Zimmerman shoots Martin in self defense.
2. The media creates a new ethnicity, “white hispanic,” to make this a racial issue.
3. The media portrays Martin as a younger, innocent child, and ignores his background.
4. The Media also ignores evidence of Zimmerman’s injuries.
5. Representatives of the racism industry, like Jackson and Sharpton, repeat the lies and inflame passions.
So, what we have is intentional media deception, and then the race pimps taking advantage of low information voters to score points.
Looking at the Democrat’s efforts, you see lots of false information that will manipulate the already upset low information voters.
This is a culmination of many efforts. The public schools teach similar ideas, and do not teach people how to think independently, or logically assess information. Instead, it teaches propaganda, and encourages a herd mentality. Then, the biased media distorts stories into something that clearly goes against the evidence. Then, add the racists, like Sharpton, into the mix, and you have a large number of uninformed and unthinking individuals that have no idea that they’re being manipulated for the gain of others.
That’s a pretty dismal state of affairs, but in the end, it’s the perfect situation to insert some carefully prepared propaganda if the regressives want to take guns. Forget that where it is tried, it fails. Forget that Chicago has some of the toughest laws against guns in the country, and it’s a shooting gallery. Blame it on others, and propose more failed government policies to fix it!
Rinse and repeat as needed!
