Yesterday I explained what I call Operation Backfire.
Whether it’s Operation Destroy Trump or or Operation Kill the Tax Bill or Operation Ban Guns, the Left always ends up with Operation Backfire.
In short, the Left’s attempts to advance any of their narratives always backfire because they push too hard and too far.
It’s inevitable, really. When you don’t rely on Truth or Facts, but instead favor hyperbole, inflammatory rhetoric and knee-jerk emotion, it’s bound to happen.
Typically, however, it takes a while for the Left’s accidental Operation Backfire to kick in.
But not so with this recent anti-gun push.
This Operation Backfire is ahead of schedule.
Now, I didn’t bother watching CNN’s Stalinesque show-trial masquerading as a “town hall.” My instincts are honed enough to know that this made-for-TV lynching of 2nd Amendment supporters would be a shameful display. So why bother suffering through it?
Instead, this morning I went onto Twitter to read through some of the things folks were tweeting out about CNN’s anti-gun diatribe.
And, I have to be honest with you, I was smiling from ear-to-ear.
that was Springer territory. the heckling. the Sheriff feeding audience applause like an afternoon talk show. compare this to today's WH event. this divides, not unites. Shame. Good night.

Look, I'm fine with protests and letting the kids from Parkland have their say. But I'm pretty tired of the media patting themselves on the back for presenting a one-sided tragicomedy of errors and pretending it's moving the ball on the gun debate. It's sewing distrust. Again.

Why are people booing @DLoesch for saying law enforcement missing red flags in mass shooting cases is a problem? I'm so confused

Was that a CNN Town Hall or the Two Minutes of Hate in Orwell's 1984? pic.twitter.com/aMBVS9HUw1

This is deranged nonsense. And all it will cause is a massive spike in gun sales from Americans correctly afraid that the Left sees gun-owners as the enemy.

Wild cheering for banning/confiscating every semi-automatic weapon in America may be good for ratings, but it's crappy politics, which is why no mainstream Democrat has ever had the balls to suggest it.

I’ve defended CNN extensively against unfair attacks from Trump, but they’ve had the worst week of any news network I can remember. The network is in meltdown mode w/ obvious activism and no one among their management seems to recognize the harm they are doing.

I call that Operation Backfire, AG_Conservative.
And it is a glorious and wonderful thing.
The demonization of gun rights advocates is not going to have the intended effect. The gun-owners I know aspire to be the kind of people who would lay down their lives for others. The jeering and screaming slanders their character and strengthens their resolve.

AKA: Operation Backfire.
If CNN thought for one moment that this “town hall” was going to win people to the anti-gun agenda, they really don’t have any idea what most Americans are like.
But we already knew that, didn’t we?
That’s precisely why they were completely caught unawares when Donald Trump won the election.
Seriously, we don’t have to lift a finger in this latest “conversation on guns.”
CNN is doing all the work for us.
Now, we’re only a week away from a mass-murderer killing seventeen people in Parkland, Florida. And this is how hard and far CNN is already pushing. Let that sink in.
They won’t be letting up anytime soon. Which means they will be pushing even harder and farther in the coming weeks.
Because for the Left there is no such thing as putting on the brakes – not when they get going the way they are now.
And there certainly isn’t anything close to “self-reflection.”
As a result, in the end, they will rush headlong over a cliff without even slowing down.
And what’s terrifically sad is CNN will drag those students from Parkland Florida over that cliff right along with them.
