The lengths the liberal media will go to to paint Republicans as miscreants is well documented.

Once upon a time journalists used to just report the facts and only the facts. Now they do all they can to use facts and twist them in macabre ways to paint their subjects with an entirely different brush.

This has been an effective tactic of theirs in the recent past and now they’re really ramping up their efforts. This time they take every single opportunity they can to make gun owners look like miscreants, loons, and in this case, Nazis.

You might have seen the Internet light up in furor after a well known Republican candidate tweeted a picture of his gun. The candidate was touring a gun factor in South Carolina when the company decided to personalize a model of their gun by engraving his name on it.

The Washington Post decided to use this Internet faux pas (only in a liberal world would taking a picture of your gun be considered a mistake) and then tie said candidate to the Nazi regime of yesteryear.

Here is the excerpt.

The handgun tweet posted by [the candidate] came after a tour and town hall with employees at the FN plant. The tweet has exploded online and has the potential to boost his image among Southerners beyond South Carolina who value the 2nd Amendment and the right to bear arms.

But the manufacturer of the handgun shown in [the candidate’s] picture has a history of its own. While the company is known as FN America, it is actually a subsidiary of FN Herstal, a foreign corporation based in Belgium. And for decades, the company was known as Fabrique Nationale d’Armes de Guerre.

During World War II, the company was requisitioned by the Nazi military and its factories produced thousands of weapons for Axis troops, including pistols carried by Nazi officers and pilots. One model, the Browning-designed Hi-Power, was used by both the Allies and Axis powers during the war, with FN factories manufacturing a version of the popular handgun for the German military.

With three paragraphs the author makes an incredible reach and tries to tie the governor to the company’s sordid past.

By extension the author is also trying to make the case anyone who uses an FN is a Nazi sympathizer.

No, you don’t see it directly, but there really is no reason to include that tidbit of history in a piece of reporting if they weren’t in some way trying to make the loose affiliation a sticking point  for liberals to freak out about.

Know this too, a large number of military and police also use the FN.

So by extension he’s also trying to implant the subliminal message even our military and our police are Nazi powered too.

Why is it everything in the mainstream press is this kind of yellow journalism we (and they) abhor?
