There are reasons we don’t like to refer to mass murders involving firearms as “mass shootings.” It’s a term that is used by corporate media to accomplish three primary goals. First, it takes the burden of responsibility off the criminal and places it on an inanimate object.
Second, corporate media has attached the phrase to white supremacy, a rule they only break when the crime is heinous enough to make their audience look past the race of the shooter, such as in Uvalde.
Third, it’s a scare phrase; they invariably invoke “mass shootings” whenever they’re about to push gun control while simply calling it a “shooting” when the crime betrays their narrative. We can see this last reason in action right now with a current headline by CNN. Even though more people were shot and killed in Philadelphia last night than in other recent stories in which they invoked the phrase “mass shooting,” they chose to simply call this one a “shooting.” They also buried the story on a sidebar on their homepage. MSNBC doesn’t even list it as a top story, just a part of their feed at the bottom of their page.
This story flies in the face of the current emotion-driven push for gun control. The firearms used were likely illegal already; we know the one gun recovered had an extended magazine which is not allowed in Philadelphia. The city itself has special laws that make it stricter on firearms than the rest of Pennsylvania. Democrats have controlled Philadelphia for seven decades.
Many are struggling in this economy. My family is among them. Please support what we’re doing here and help us to continue to spread the truth Americans need to read and hear.
NONE of the “common-sense gun safety laws” being proposed by Democrats and RINOs would have prevented this massacre.

But perhaps the most important reason corporate media is yawning at this story is the demographic.
The mass shooting in Philadelphia last night will be dropped like a hot potato. Not the demographic group the media likes to cover. https://t.co/fQgnhFQeFK

To reiterate, Philadelphia has stricter gun control laws than the ones Democrats and RINOs claim will make Americans safer. The results have been, as we’ve said for a long time, MORE violent crime and far fewer good guys with guns to help reduce the violence.
Areas where gun control laws are minimal are among the safest in the country. Conversely, violent crime is highest when the people are not allowed by government to defend themselves. The nature of criminals is to break laws, including gun control laws, while law abiding citizens are shafted. We see this in Philadelphia regularly, and it’s not even the worst of major Democrat Hellholes who keep their law abiding citizens disarmed while allowing criminals to rule the streets.
According to Fox News [emphasis added]:
*Alert* Emergency personnel are responding to a shooting incident in the area of 3rd and South Streets. Several people have been injured. Please avoid the area.

Philadelphia is still reeling from nine separate shooting incidents from the night before, Friday into Saturday, that left a pregnant woman dead. At least eight other people were injured, officials said.
The baby the woman was carrying was saved by medical professionals, according to a report. Police are continuing to investigate their respective causes. An investigation into Saturday night’s shooting remains active.
If the shooters or victims were mostly white and not in Democrat Hellhole Philadelphia with strict gun laws, there would be wall-to-wall coverage. Instead, racists in corporate media are treating it like they always treat Black-on-Black crime: minimal coverage and many yawns.

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
