[SATIRE]

U.S.—Somber members of the press offered their thoughts and prayers that someone would start some violence at the gun rights rally in Virginia today.

Reporters expressed their grief and condolences as the violence they hyped has so far failed to materialize.

"Nobody has so much as fired a shot. This is an unbelievable tragedy," said one teary-eyed MSNBC reporter, clearly caught up in the anguish of the moment. "It's tragic that we live in a country where reporters who are just minding their own business trying to push a narrative can have everything ripped away from them in an instant when protesters refuse to shoot at people."

A CBS News reporter called for a moment of silence live on the air. "Let's all take a minute and cry out to a non-specific deity of our choice that any second now, a miraculous shooting would occur." When it did not occur, she began weeping and gnashing her teeth before ripping her suit jacket in despair. "WHY, GOD, WHY!?!"

One CNN reporter has offered up to $1,000 for anyone who will start some violence to help out the narrative.

The leftist media and the democrats are the enemy of free people. It really is as simple as that. They constantly use information warfare against the people of the United States to attempt to achieve their demands.

Buy guns and ammo, folks. Leftists are simply never going to stop trying to control the rest of us. This is fundamentally why the 2nd amendment was added to the US Constitution. It was designed to recognize the right to the people to protect themselves from tyrannical people.

Today’s satire is tomorrow’s reality.

Satire does not belong in “news/activism.”

Yeah, but behind closed doors it’s not.

This isn’t satire. We all know this is their private dream.

Sarcasm is probably a better word. But very effective.

Best of all, it causes the leftist MSM to spin around in a tizzy. CNN is actually angered by BB. They have no sense of humor. Or maybe it hits too close to the target and it hurts them.

Man today was great! Huge crowd. LOTS of rifles and gadsden flags. And nobody got hurt, mr. governor. Did you notice? Not one shot fired. So many responsible people carrying big weapons. I’m so proud and relieved.

I’m sorry but putting a satire flag on the BEE ruins the fun.
