The Washington Post Hates Heroes Who Save Lives if a Gun is Involved

The Washington Post is the incarnation of mainstream media. They are one of the largest and most popular outlets in the country. Worse, they claim to be impartial. Anyone with half a brain can see their obvious bias, but even by their own standards, they sometimes jump so far over the line that no excuses can be tolerated. This is one of those times.

You might remember this story. Back in May, a deranged shooter opened fire on a diner in Oklahoma City. He shot three people before armed citizens intervened. The two heroes, Carlos Nazario and Bryan Wittle, independently heard the gunshots, grabbed their own weapons and engaged the shooter. They both scored hits on the shooter, and he ultimately died from his wounds.

Because of their swift action, the shooter was not able to follow up on his attempted murders, and all three of the innocent gunshot victims survived. Nazario and Wittle had never met before the incident, and they did not know about each other until they had both fired shots at the shooter. They then swiftly coordinated their efforts and saved the day.

It’s also important to know that they both acted well within the law. Every state allows for armed citizens to utilize deadly force in the defense of others, and that’s exactly what happened here. Both men have been heralded as local heroes by the public and police in Oklahoma City. Neither man faced any charges for their action.

It seems like a cut and dried case, but you can trust mainstream media to want to distort this into something disgusting. Enter the Washington Post.

You’ll quickly see where the post was going with this. The title of the article is “There Were Three Shooters.” If they wrote nothing else defamatory, that would still be too much. Implying that the heroes who stopped a shooting and saved lives were in fact part of the problem is the worst level of dishonesty.

It’s already enough to condemn the Post as propagandist garbage that should never print anything again. Unfortunately, the rest of the article was far worse.

Just the next line, the tagline, read “Two Oklahoma citizens killed an active shooter, and it’s not as simple as it sounds.” This is again an outright lie. You just saw how simple it all was.

While it does acknowledge that Nazario and Wittle were not accomplices of the mass shooter, the article is intended to imply that they made the situation worse by having guns. Because, in the Post’s eyes, simply carrying a gun is an act of pure evil tantamount to mass shootings.

Beyond vilifying heroes for their actions, the article goes on to suggest that the actions of our two heroes were unnecessary. They say that the police were on the scene within one minute of the first 911 call. First, that’s an obvious exaggeration. Second, it doesn’t matter because the situation was resolved before any police arrived. It’s self-evident proof that citizen intervention was entirely necessary and clearly saved lives.

Then, the article takes its most unforgivable turn. It claims that the shooter didn’t deserve to die because none of his victims died. The Post seems to think that a mass shooter who gets foiled in his attempt to kill as many people as possible isn’t as bad as a murderer who is actually successful. The Post says that the shooter’s crimes did not warrant the death penalty, thus the true crime in all of this was that his life was cut short by vigilantes.

We can’t gloss over this. Isn’t the left comprised of champions against victim blaming? Do they honestly believe that the intervention of these two men was somehow a worse act than the guard who sat back and watched a psychopath kill 17 children at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School? How is foiling mass murder a bad or tragic thing?

This is the most insidious and dangerous level of propaganda. The left hates guns and the autonomy they provide so much that they will insinuate that saving lives is somehow worse than being a mass shooter.

Anger. Outrage. None of it is enough. There are two courses to take. First, we must make sure the Washington Post never receives another dime of revenue ever again. If you think this is the worst they can do, you don’t understand the climate of the situation.

Second, we have to stay active. Above all, don’t allow these charlatans to sway the impending elections. Vote in 2nd Amendment supporters and keep America safe. If we do any less, we hand control of our country over to these monsters.

    Why do all of these communists allowed to spout their propaganda ( liberal newspapers ) ?

    1. Kirk B Mullins says

      It’s called the 1st Amendment to the Constitution for the United States of America, freedom of the press. Thankfully we do not have to read it, nor subscribe to their despicable rag. It is not worth wiping your backside with.

      1. Recce1 says

        Kirk, thank you for a genuine American Patriot constitutionalist response. We must never forget that the First Amendment wasn’t meant just to protect acceptable speech, but also to protect objectionable speech as long as it didn’t advocate violence or criminal action.

        Thanks

    The mentally, morally, and spiritually deficient lie-beral demonocrats are suffering from the insanity of satanity. They have been idiotized by Lucy Furr whose only expertise is bullshitology under the cloak of self-righteousness! They are lost ducks trapped inside a hate echo chamber.

  3. Steve Carroll says

    Ok., if the author of this article is ever attacked. don’t defend him until you take his pulse. Per the writer’s logic, if he’s not dead, let the shooter shoot him again before you defend him.

      Excellent thought. Bezos should have his nuts cut off.

        For what crime? I take it you don’t like the Bill of Rights.

    While the Washington Post has a well-deserved reputation for its anti-gun bias and habit of editorializing in news stories, you undermine your own credibility by stating that the police being on the scene within one minute was an “obvious exaggeration”. While the old saw of “When seconds count, the police are only minutes away” usually holds sway, there are times when the police are serendipitously near and arrive before a minute has elapsed. The recent mass shooting at The Capital newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland is a case in point. A police officer was on the scene in something on the order of 40 seconds. Of course, it would have been much better if the brave reporter who fought back against the man armed with the shotgun with something more effective than a trash can and a recycling bin but in Maryland “May Issue” generally means “Won’t Issue”. It cost that young woman her life, along with the lives of four of her co-workers.

    Mr. Say, Maybe Because we live in America with rights for all such as free speech?

    Washington Post? I should have guessed. They seem to have a theme, if they can write a phony story to make heroes look bad they will. A phony story that makes the President or any of his cabinet look bad they will. I wonder what they would do if a gunman were roaming in their offices.

  7. Timothy Toroian says

    I will hope the editor-in-chief gets scared S****** some dark night and then writes an editorial decrying the police because they couldn’t respond fast enough. That shooter was one unlucky SOB, wasn’t he? TWO good guy shooters who knew what they were doing, you dip ****s. One of the best examples of good guys with guns in ages. It wasn’t a repeat of Killeen, Texas, or would that have the paper happy to point out that umpteen number of people were killed because someone had a gun. A road flare and a couple of gallons of gas would be harder to stop. Didn’t some clown try that in a newspaper office?

  8. Frank Vazquez says

    According to the fascist liberals, it’s better for people to die innocent than to get their hands dirty and save lives.

    Sorry, I’d rather see the other poor bastard, you know, the criminal, die for his actions than to loose my life.

  10. Roy says

    If that gunman had walked into their offices and opened fire on all of them, how fast do you think they would be begging for anyone with a gun to defend them and their first amendment rights?

    variety of websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.

    I have heard great things about blogengine.net.

  28. Benefits of Coconut Oil says

    Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to
    be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while
    people consider worries that they just don’t know about.

    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out
    the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
