Washington Post Seeks Truth, Spouts Lies Instead

posted on August 16, 2016

With all due respect to the Washington Post fact checker—and there is very little respect due, in this case—the recent decision to give the NRA four Pinocchios for saying Hillary Clinton “doesn’t believe in your right to own a gun at home for self-defense” smacks of anti-gun bias and partisan political opportunism.

Consider a few simple facts: The Supreme Court’s 2008 Heller decision was all about whether Washington, D.C., residents had a constitutional right to own a gun in their home for self-defense. The court ruled they did. Clinton has said in no uncertain terms that the court “was wrong” in that ruling. More recently, she’s dodged a question about whether the Second Amendment protects an individual right to bear arms.

No matter how the pointy-headed prevaricators at the Post try to explain what Clinton might have actually meant, the fact is that she said what she said, and she believes what she believes. Remember, this is the same Washington Post that recently gave President Barack Obama only three Pinocchios for saying it “is easier for a teenager to buy a Glock than get his hands on a computer or even a book.” Can you say, “liberal media bias”?
