WaPo mocked for ‘big scoop’ that maker of gun used in TX school massacre donated to GOP

The leftist media is tripping all over themselves in a frantic effort to weaponize the slaughter of 19 young children and their teachers at a Texas elementary school to score political points by churning out propaganda to demonize Republicans for the actions of the deranged monster who took their lives.

But The Washington Post may have shot itself in the foot with what it promoted as a major scoop.

The intrepid muckrakers at WaPo breathlessly broke the story that the owners of Daniel Defense, the manufacturer of the rifle that was used by 18-year-old shooter Salvador Ramos during his killing spree, have donated money to the GOP, not exactly a stunning bombshell when considering that the Republican Party isn’t actively working to put gunmakers out of business.

According to the paper, the company’s owners are “deep-pocketed Republican donors, giving to candidates and committees at the federal and state level aligned against limits on access to assault rifles and other semiautomatic weapons.”

“The owners of the Georgia-based company have donated more than $70,000 directly to GOP candidates for federal office this election cycle, according to a review of filings with the Federal Election Commission. Daniel Defense itself gave $100,000 last year to a PAC backing incumbent Republican senators,” according to WaPo.

The paper also struck out at former NFL superstar and GOP Senate candidate Herschel Walker in a sleazy effort to insinuate that he bears some of the blame for the Uvalde massacre.

“The beneficiaries of the couple’s political contributions include at least one candidate who emerged victorious in Tuesday’s primary contests, Herschel Walker. The former football star is running for the U.S. Senate in Georgia with former president Donald Trump’s endorsement. Asked Tuesday night whether he would support new gun legislation, Walker said, “What I like to do is see it and everything and stuff.”

Twitter users just weren’t having it and fired back at WaPo and its shifting of the blame away from the actual shooter.

What some including Jason Whitlock of “Fearless” pointed out is that the media wasn’t exactly beating down the doors of the manufacturer of the SUV that was used as a murder weapon by a murderous black supremacist who drove his vehicle through a crowd of white people at a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin last year, killing six and injuring dozens including children and members of the Dancing Grannies performing group.

“Help me understand. Were there stories on the car manufacturer after the Waukesha Massacre?” Whitlock asked.

Others had the same question.

The family-owned gunmaker has been targeted by the gun-grabbing left over an ad that featured a child with one of its products.

Among those taking to Twitter to attack Daniel Defense is Lincoln Project grifter Steve Schmidt who appears to have finally recovered from a weeklong meltdown about Meghan McCain’s new book.

Deranged, aging, unmarried and childless YouTuber Keith Olbermann, who was once a heavy hitter at MSNBC and ESPN but who is now relegated to making angry videos and tweeting from the lonely confines of his New York City apartment, joined the piling on of Daniel Defense.

The one thing about the leftist media and its Twitter trolls is that their hit pieces and smear jobs are so transparent in their dishonesty that normal people tune them out.
