The Myth That the US Leads the World in Mass Shootings

This article by Jon Miltimore originally was originaly published on

gun control

To understand the misleading narrative, we must look to the era of narrative-driven journalism and the politicization of society, both of which subjugate truth to ideology and politics.

If you asked me this morning which nation has the most mass shootings in the world, I would have said, with perhaps a flicker of hesitation, the United States.

This is a tad embarrassing to admit because I’m pretty familiar with shooting statistics, having written several articles on gun violence and the Second Amendment.

Pauline Hanson re-visited - Australian media incite violence

Now that Pauline Hanson has re-entered the poltical fray, we have decided to re-print some articles from the time of her original entry into politics to remind Australians of one of the most disgraceful episodes in Australian political history, where sustained, vicious media attacks whipped up crowds of screaming demonstrators into intimidating and even physically attacking Pauline Hanson and her supporters.

Martin Lehmann - 21 July 1998
The media, after more than a year of the greatest vilification campaign in Australian history, have succeeded in dividing Australia like never before. They have joined forces with the politically correct academics and the multicultural and aboriginal industries in vilifying Pauline Hanson and all those who support her.

Violent mobs, whipped up by a vicious media onslaught,  attack Hanson supporters

A man trying to enter the meeting is bashed to the ground by this  brutish thug. Can anybody identify him or others in this raging mob?

On 7 July 1997 around 100 people trying to enter a One Nation meeting in the Melbourne suburb of Dandenong were confronted by about 1,000 screaming, jostling demonstrators. Many, like Keith Warburton who was bashed unconscious by three demonstrators, had come to find out for themselves what One Nation stood for. 

"I'm just  an individual without political leanings," Warburton said after the attack from his Dandenong Hospital bed. "An attack like this is just not Australian, where we believe in freedom of speech."

According to police, Warburton was bashed by three individuals, one punched him, the other grabbed him in a head-lock and the third kicked him. As he fell already unconscious, he hit his head on the curb.

On 19 July 1998 over 1500 violent protesters gathered outside the Hawthorn Town Hall to threaten and intimidate people trying to attend a One Nation meeting. Many elderly people fearing for their safety turned away.

Marxist Martin HirstYou can save yourself three years of politically correct, left-wing indoctrination at journalism school by just following the simple steps below.

Learn the following vocabulary with its emphasis on hard-hitting negative verbs:

Ship of fools: global warmists ice-bound in the Antarctic

Climate change and media bias.

The majority of the mainstream journalists have become staunch advocates of the global warming hypothesis. Their reporting clearly favours reports from the warmists while they gleefully parrot warmist jibes at skeptics; phrases such as "deniers".

Australia's ABC is one of the leaders of the pack.

In November 2013 the ABC ran a two-part report in which it eagerly presented Professor ...


ABC's group think on climate change

Former ABC chairman, Maurice Newman warned of the global warming group think in the ABC:

In March 2010 as chairman, I addressed an in-house conference of 250 ABC leaders… I blamed group think and used climate change as an example…

Jonathon Holmes, the presenter of Media Watch, was so angry “he could not concentrate"… I was interviewed by PM and teased as to whether I was a “climate change denier or not as obvious as that?” .

I ...


Media bias - ABC presenters demonstrate how to heckle a Liberal

Gerard Henderson analyses three recent ABC interviews with Coalition frontbenchers and concludes:

The Faine/Trioli/Kelly Lesson

In view of the unprofessional interviewing style to which some ABC presenters subject leading Coalition MPs, it is scarcely surprising if the likes of Tony Abbott decide that they could make ...

ABC bias

This piece from Andrew Bolt on 4 May 2013 is a clear demonstration of ABC bias, a bias that ABC executives and journalists seem blissfully unaware of.

ABC managing director Mark Scott on Rafael Epstein’s show once again plays too cute about the overwhelmingly Leftist bias he’s presided over - in breach of the ABC’s charter ...
