Yesterday, NBC ‘News’ reporter Ben Collins labeled the Lobby Day, which is held each year in Virginia a “white nationalist rally” because gun-owners will be attending to stand for their Constitutional rights.
Apparently, that’s racist to the NBC ‘reporter.’
Reporters covering tomorrow’s white nationalist rally in Virginia, I’m absolutely begging you:
Verify information before you send it out tomorrow, even if it’s a very sensational rumor you heard from a cop.
Don’t become a hero in neo-Nazi propaganda circles with made-up stuff.

Of course, Collin later removed the offensive accusation, but the tweet demonstrates that Senator Amanda Chase is correct: the left and the media are ‘setting up’ gun owners to become domestic terrorists.
Many people are asking how dare he say this? He basically said that ANYONE who chooses to support their Constitutional Rights by attending the Lobby day rally is a racist!
The Post previewed the rally by focusing on various self-declared militia members who are coming in from other states to attend the rally, carefully noting that the militia members who pledged to never return to Charlottesville while armed made no such pledge regarding Richmond, the location of Monday’s rally.
Moms Demand Action issued a release describing Second Amendment Sanctuary resolutions as “lawless” and describing supporters of such resolutions as “gun extremists.”
Northam claimed “violent rhetoric” has been tied to the rally, although he did not give details about the rhetoric. He did, however, use the claim of “violent rhetoric’ to justify issuing a “state of emergency” and subsequent gun ban on Virginia Capitol grounds.
[Many people think Northam’s “rhetoric” about being about being able to kill children moments after birth is “violent.”]
The rally is part of Lobby Day, which the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL) has sponsored every year since 2oo3. VCDL’s Philip Van Cleave told CNN his group has been coming to the state Capitol every January since 2003 without incident.
So, because this year it is being attended by angry citizens who are upset that their God-given rights are being stripped from them by extremists, that’s all liberals need to label them racist terrorists.
