Killer Cops: How Come Gun Control Advocates Only Want to Control Citizens’ Guns?

by Alex Pietrowski

Recently on Fox News, Alex Epstein, the founder of the Center for Industrial Progress, and author of the book, Fossil Fuels Improve the Planet, argues in favor of hydraulic gas fracturing, or fracking, as it has become known. This is the technique of extracting natural gas and oil from layers of underground shale rock by pressure-injecting an undisclosed mixture of water and chemicals deep into the ground.

This particular segment serves as an outstanding example of what corporate propaganda looks like and how the media triggers our cultural programming to stimulate fear/desire conditioning, in order to persuade us into conforming to a selected position on an issue.

The clip begins with the graphic of a printing press rolling out unlimited dollar bills across the screen and the Fox host framing the conversation, asking their central question about fracking

…its being called a modern day gold rush… reducing the need for foreign oil. With so many opportunities to frack in the Unites States, could this technology be a new path to American wealth?

Details are still unfolding, but in the wake of the Navy Yard shooting that left 13 people dead yesterday, our politicians and mainstream media have dutifully fallen in line with the White House’s gun control agenda and cries to stem the growing tide of gun violence through tougher gun legislation.

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) released a statement that included, “There are reports the killer was armed with an AR-15, a shotgun and a semiautomatic pistol when he stormed an American military installation in the nation’s capital and took at least 12 innocent lives,” (even though it was later reported there was no AR-15), and she asked “When will enough be enough?”

Rep. John Tierney (D-MA) was quoted, “We have to get away from this nonsense that anybody’s attacking your Second Amendment rights. We’re well beyond that. What we’re talking about now is public health and safety.”

President Obama opened his economic speech at the White House yesterday with, “So we are confronting yet another mass shooting, and today it happened on a military installation in our nation’s capital.” Apparently he’s going to implement more executive actions now.
