Every tragedy is an opportunity according to Democrats and their leftist friends in the corporate-controlled media.
But MSNBC’s Katy Tur took that old strategy to new disturbing lengths.
And that involved blatantly using a horrifying New York City killing spree to shamelessly hawk Joe Biden’s talking points.
When a man made a ferocious attack on subway riders in Brooklyn, the Fake News Media couldn’t wait to push gun control.
The story was still unfolding with 16 people injured and another five critically wounded during the shooting.
At that point police hadn’t even figured out what had happened, but that didn’t keep MSNBC’s Katy Tur from pushing Joe Biden’s latest gun control effort.
“Frankly, and there are so many guns on the street right now . . . In fact, we saw yesterday, President Biden hold a news conference on ghost guns because gun violence is on the rise and there’s concerns about trying to control it, get out ahead of even worse violence with these unregistered guns that you can build at home,” Tur said during an 11:00 a.m. segment.
By noon Andrea Mitchell was on to prod her into more blatant speculation.
“Talk to me about . . . the politics of this, frankly. Because just yesterday you had the President of the United States doing, you know, an event about ghost guns, an executive order, under pressure to do something about guns,” Mitchell said.
Of course, Tur was happy to go there no matter how irrelevant – and she accidentally revealed her political bias in the process.
“The President held this news conference in the hour of my show yesterday, around 2:30 yesterday, and he was trying – is trying to appoint a new leader of the ATF,” Tur said. “The Alcohol Tobacco and Firearm agency hasn’t had a permanent leader in many years.”
We’re living in a time when our economy is collapsing and international diplomacy seems to be devolving into something that could become WWIII.
Clearly what we need is one more “permanent” bureaucrat.
But that’s exactly what Tur wants – and fast before NYC has to do something drastic like hire more police officers.
Only a dyed-in-the-wool leftist could get things so far backwards.
A bureaucrat dedicated to violating the Constitution by removing our right to protect ourselves is a good thing in Tur’s book.
But law enforcement officers charged with maintaining peace are to be avoided at all costs.
With people like Tur explaining the world to her viewers, it’s no wonder Marxist Black Lives Matters rioters managed to get away with all kinds of criminal activity over the past two years while conservatives have been painted as radical enemies of Democracy.
