NBC News reporter tries to set narrative for Lobby Day/gun rights rally in VA today

Yesterday Ben Collins, a reporter for NBC News, tried to frame the narrative for the Lobby Day protest in Virginia today. He tweeted – then deleted – the following:

He tweeted this because three men suspected of being members of a neo-Nazi hate group, including a former reservist in the Canadian Army, had weapons and discussed traveling Virginia’s rally.

After being schooled, he deleted the tweet and issued this correction:

“Hi everybody! I’m deleting a tweet so I can be super clear about tomorrow’s rally in Virginia.

The Lobby Day protest is and has traditionally been a gun rights rally, but white nationalists, including militant group The Base, have been planning violent action at the event.”

According to Breitbart, Moms Demand and Gov. Coonman have been trying to set the same narrative.

How ironic that a reporter warns others to verify information while he’s spreading #fakenews about an event that has yet to occur. Gotta get their narrative out there so it can be repeated and shared so the truth won’t matter.

Quite typical of the liberal hacks in media today.

Any kind of rally or demo that is pro-2A is going to be spun at 3000 PRM by the MSM. If they need “neo-Nazi hate groups” for their fake narratives they will just call central casting. Perception management. So I fail to see the value of these things. The lines are clearly drawn now, traitors and patriots. With a mushy middle of “undecideds”. If we have a civil war they will be collateral damage. Anyone who is undecided at this stage of the game deserves to be

Gov coonman is gonna get a sound drubbing by everyone BUT the lamestream media. Please tell me which gun laws criminals will adhere to. It’s not a gun problem. It’s a mental health problem.

Criminals don’t adhere to any laws that I know of. The only “gun problem” is that there are too many restrictions on law-abiding gun owners. If you’re law abiding even one restriction is one too many. My point is that rallies and demonstrations are preaching to the choir and only give the MSM opportunities to spin the narrative. We know that their objective is to disarm us but they don’t care what we think. I understand W VA is offering 2A sanctuary. Virginians should take them up on it if it comes to that and send Coonman a message from… Read more »

I have come to the conclusion that there no longer is such a thing as an objective journalist. The so-called mainstream media have devolved into propaganda organizations that would have been the envy of Joseph Goebbels. Ben C0llins and his cohort of mendacious lackeys have destroyed the concept of a free press. These hacks are not journalists; they are not reporters; they are nothing more than communist, ant-American propagandists.

There are some objective journalists but they are few and far between and those who report the truth, however courageously, run the risk of being suicided or having unfortunate accidents. The objective of the MSM is not to inform but rather to misinform, disinform, and distract. In an age of universal deceit there is no market for truth. We have, though, the inerrant Word of God as a gold standard for determining the truth about everything we perceive and everything we are told. When I am in conflict about an issue I defer taking a position and pray on it

Along the same lines…The Chicago Sun Times editorial for today:

Get out of the way, Senators, and let journalists cover the impeachment trial right


Wonder how they feel about TRUE independent media?

The Left, specifically members of a certain tribe, are always in a rush to brand anyone they disagree with a “Nazi.” I haven’t seen any brownshirts outside the history books.

So what, pray tell, is a Nazi? Or a neo-nazi? Can we have a definition, instead of just an allegation? For it would seem to me that anyone who owns a firearm is a Nazi, according to the MSM.

HOW STUPID does the MSM think people are?


[…] media’s efforts to paint the rally as “white racist/nationalist/supremacist” (see DCG’s “NBC News reporter tries to set narrative for Lobby Day/gun rights rally in VA today“), the rally was peaceful and the participants were diverse, including Blacks, LGBTs, and […]
