We always slam the Left for politicizing a tragedy, so I suppose we should do the same for Don Jr., who posted the following to Twitter on the heels of the shooting at Youtube headquarters yesterday that left the gunwoman dead, and three others injured.
You think there’s any chance whatsoever that a mass shooters hateful Instagram and YouTube channels would be pulled immediately if they were NRA members as opposed to liberal Vegan PETA activists? Asking for a few million friends in the @NRA

Yeah, it’s just hard to because Trump Jr. makes a really, really valid point. Were the shooter to be affiliated with a gun rights organization like the NRA the media would be having a field day arguing how the nation’s gun lobby is a “terrorist organization,” how it is responsible for the deaths of millions of Americans and how its members are complicit in the murder of those Americans.
Not today, though. The shooter, identified as Nasim Najafi Aghdam, was reportedly an unhinged animal activist. Early speculation is that she targeted Youtube because it began censoring her videos.
“There is no equal growth opportunity on YOUTUBE or any other video sharing site, your channel will grow if they want to!!!!!” she said in a post on social media. “Youtube filtered my channels to keep them from getting views!”
So the San Bruno YouTube HQ shooter was Female, foreign, a Vegan animal activist, off the rails mentally ill, didn’t use an AR-15, and shot up a building in the strictest gun control state in America….how fast do you think the mainstream media is going to bury this? pic.twitter.com/oHnkSiolGv

My guess is that the media will, as actress Mindy Robinson tweeted, “bury this” story. They’ll bury it just about as fast as they did the story about the armed resource officer that stopped an active shooter at a Maryland high school last month. Speaking of which, where was the follow up on that?
How come Blaine Gaskill, the brave officer who engaged the gunman, isn’t a household name like David Hogg? Shouldn’t we be celebrating Mr. Gaskill? The media treats Hogg as a hero (watch this CNN talking head gush over the teen during a recent interview). Why isn’t Mr. Gaskill given the same attention?
