The anticop movement from the left seems to have lost steam. The NFL was leading the charge, but their dramatic revenue losses quickly changed their minds. Players are thinking twice before kneeling for the anthem.
On the other side, it seems there are fewer stories of BLM protests and liberal riots in response to events where police officers are forced to take civilian lives. They may have lost steam, but they haven’t completely abandoned the effort.
The truth is that the movement has motivated police forces to be extra diligent in recording their actions, and the extra video footage is silencing the left. Somehow, that still isn’t enough to keep them from trying to outright lie about events. Here’s their latest pile of nonsense.
You may have heard this story as it’s the latest source of liberal uprising. Gray was shot and killed by police in the Magnuson Park of Seattle last week. There have been protests and calls to action to cripple the Seattle police in any way possible. The left finds it completely unacceptable for police officers to defend their very lives, and the story of Kyle Gray shows how far they will take this narrative.
The Seattle Times published a piece covering the story, and the obvious bias is almost sickening. They quoted Gray’s mother (who wasn’t at the crime scene) who assured readers that Gray was unarmed. They went further to quote “concerned citizens” (who also weren’t there) voicing their general fear of the police. If you took the Seattle Times’ account at face value, you would have to assume the Seattle police are a roaming hit squad terrifying the population into submission.
The Real Story
Contrary to mainstream media bias, the true story paints a completely different picture. Kyle Gray was on probation after serving time for possession and abuse of controlled substances (namely heroin). He violated his parole by illegally obtaining a firearm. He then went with his girlfriend to commit armed robbery at the Northgate Mall. After leaving the mall, he and his girlfriend threatened and fired shots at the landlord of an apartment complex. It was after this that the police caught up to the pair. As they were arresting the girlfriend, Gray sped off in his car. A police chase ensued, and it culminated in Gray losing his life.
At this point, the two versions of the story sound like a he-said, she-said situation. Unfortunately for the social justice warriors, one side has definitive proof. The police released footage from three different encounters with Gray throughout the night. They include cellphone footage of Gray firing at the landlord, dashcam footage of Gray shooting at police during the car chase and bodycam footage of the final encounter.
There is no debate here. Kyle Gray shot at the police. They returned fire, and he was killed. The Seattle police are following procedure and investigating the incident, but the camera footage makes everything perfectly clear. This was a justified, and even necessary instance of police using deadly force.
This story tells us more about the left than anything else in recent news. Social justice warriors who watch indisputable proof of Gray shooting at the police are still trying to paint him as a martyr. This is right in line with the masses on the left who are openly complaining about tax cuts and how injecting money into the economy is sure to hurt job growth. They know how ridiculous this all is, but they have no other options. They are victims of the information age.
A few years ago, mainstream news was the only way to get information. Most Americans had no better option than to trust these resources. With the expanse of the internet and alternative media sources, the open deception that has plagued America for decades has been exposed. Raw data and irrefutable proof are silencing liberal claims on every topic, and now that they can be fact checked, there is nowhere left to hide. They simply tell louder and bolder lies in the hopes that we’ll be too lazy to notice.
Trump has stirred an awakening. Common sense is ultimately more powerful than the propaganda efforts of the left. They are fast spiraling out of control, and the results enable Republicans to fix tax law, scale back the damage of Obamacare, restore effective foreign policy and more. It’s an exciting time to be an American, but don’t let the slew of victories lull you into complacence. The left hasn’t given up, and they are more desperate than ever. Stay alert and their last-ditch efforts are sure to fail.
