Gun control advocates have speculated about the gunman in
Philadelphia who wounded six police officers on Wednesday. They were
quick to assume that somehow America's so-called "lax" gun laws were to
blame for the man having access to a firearm. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, the gunman is 36-year-old, Maurice Hill, who has a long criminal history of gun convictions, resisting arrest and drug dealing.
Hill was reportedly identified when an anonymous source told the Inquirer Hill's lawyer, Shaka Mzee Johnson, received a phone call asking him to come to the apartment building he was barricaded in.
“My client is requesting me to come to the scene,” he said.
From the Inquirer:
history in the adult criminal justice system began in 2001 when he was
18 and was arrested with a gun that had an altered serial number.

Op-ed: Violence v. Truth...and the Matter of Free Speech By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots on American Political Radio
Two films recently made the headlines...one film indirectly trying to
incite violence with the other film directly condemned those who commit
violence...the former backfiring against itself while the other has
basically been shutdown for simply telling the truth.
But let's start with the fact that in today's “bizarro”
political world Democrats know well that what's morally wrong or simply
an out-and-out lie can and will be twisted both by them and their media cohorts
in such a way that it becomes an open condemnation that can be used
either against President Trump himself, his family, his policies, or his
supporters...of which I am so proud to be one.
Democrats know well how to manipulate deep-seated anti-Trump emotions
in order to bring them to the surface in an effort to make said
emotions more palatable and acceptable to the now stirred up Democrat
masses. Or at least they did knew how, but now even some of their own
ilk have bore witness to something so vile...politically poisonous
actually...that their hate is finally backfiring on them by the
very Hollywood elites the Democrats so love to embrace.
And that backfiring is courtesy of a Universal Pictures film...a film
that now will not be released in theaters...a film that called
for the deaths of those who support President Donald Trump...specifically those of us more commonly known as “deplorables.”
“Deploreables”...the very word Hillary Clinton used to describe we
supporters of then presidential candidate Donald Trump during the highly
contentious 2016 presidential election cycle.
“The Hunt” is the name of the film in question, and it was to make
its theatrical debut on September 27th, being marketed as “political
satire.” “The Hunt” received an R-rating due to its overtly violent
content as its plot, according to Hollywood trade publications, centered
around a group of wealthy “thrill-seeking” anti-Trump Democrat elitists
vacationing at a five-star resort with twelve Trump supporters
vacationing on a different part of what was a private island. But
unbeknownst to the Trump supporters is that the others are there for an
“experience of a lifetime,” with that experience being the opportunity
to target, stalk, and hunt for sport...as in “trophy hunt”...the Trump
supporters until they are all dead.
And the film comes replete with dialogue that goes way beyond the
typical Hollywood-spewed “hate Trump” rhetoric as it crosses over into
both inciting and relishing in violence with words such as these, “At
least The Hunt's coming up. Nothing better than going out to the Manor
and slaughtering a dozen deplorables.”
And these words are reported to be milder than most of the other words
spoken in this film, thus proving once again that Hollywood is completely out
of control as films like this actually help to ferment the “how-to's
of violence” against both President Trump and his supporters, and it's
doing so by hiding behind what's known as the “art of film making,” as well as
the screenwriter's First Amendment right to “free speech.” But the right
to “free speech” is one thing...the right to speech that helps to
promote, incite, and propagate violence is quite a different matter
Now image the outcry if a film was made that saw Trump supporters
targeting Obama supporters for the kill...the media would have a field
day with that one...and calls for the arrests of all those involved in such a
film on the grounds of its being racist and inciting violence would
surely be heard throughout the 24/7 news cycle.
But the reality is that “The Hunt” would still have been released as
scheduled on Friday, September 27th if not for the fact that in the wake of the
recent El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio mass shootings we began seeing
much needed advertising venues pulling out. And sports network ESPN was
one of the first to use a modicum of common sense by their deciding to
pull both the trailer and promotional ads for the film...both of which
they had cleared to run before the shootings took place. And while ESPN
thought their parent company Disney...a supposedly family-oriented
company...would chime in to support their stated decision, Disney refused to comment at all.
Whether commenting or not, kudos must go out to ESPN for doing the right
thing, and they did so even before their official spokespeople issued a
press statement that no advertising spots or any trailers for the film will
appear on their network in the time leading up to the film's release.
And as more and more bad press started appearing on conservative
networks like Fox News and in conservative press outlets and blogs...bad
press pertaining to the true motives of filmmaker Craig Zobel and its
producer Jason Blum's Blumhouse Productions...President Trump rightfully
chimed in by tweeting, “The movie coming out is made in order to
inflame and cause chaos. They create their own violence, and then try to
blame others. They are the true Racists, and are very bad for our
Country!" And President Trump also added that Hollywood was doing a "tremendous disservice"
to the country due to its "very dangerous" movies.
And our president is one hundred percent correct as what those in Hollywood are now doing...a Hollywood rightfully being deemed “Tinsel
Town Terrorists” by some of its many naysayers...is deliberately and with
much malice intended stereotyping all of us Trump supporters as being worthy
of killing...killing just for the political sport of it...and sending
that message out in the guise of entertainment.
But when all is said and done it comes down to the fact that while
the Democrats and their ilk constantly blame President Trump's supposed
rhetoric for all the violence going on in our country today; as they
blame President Trump for our country (supposedly) being more divided
than ever before; and as they continue to bloviate with fingers crossed behind their
backs that we need to come together as one country united; their
propaganda arm in Hollywood literally spent millions of dollars to try
and convince their ilk that to copycat kill people based on their
politics alone could someday, they hope, become the new norm... quite hypocritical I would say.
Bottom line...the film “The Hunt” shows just how hateful and spiteful
the left has become (simply because Hillary is not president nor will she ever be) not just
for making a film like this one in the first place, but because last Wednesday both the filmmakers and a Universal Studios spokesperson
stated, "Out of sensitivity to the attention on the country’s recent
shooting tragedies, Universal Pictures and the filmmakers of 'The Hunt'
have temporarily paused its marketing campaign and are reviewing
materials as we move forward”...but “move forward” to exactly what I now wonder.
And while these same folks later issued yet another statement that, “We
stand by our filmmakers and will continue to distribute films in
partnership with bold and visionary creators, like those associated with
this satirical social thriller, but we understand that now is not the
right time to release this film,” pray tell when is the “right time” to
release such a politically biased and ever so violent revenge seeking film...I say
it never is.
But the words “not the right time” are a double-edged sword, so to
speak, for these four little words mean that the film can either be released
at a later date, go directly to Netfix (Obama infiltrated Netflix) and
other subscription TV networks...or all three. And don't be surprised if a
video game by the same name soon hits the store shelves, because
the Hollywood elitists and the Democrat hierarchy will only “play nice” for
just so long.
And if you foolishly think any of the Democrats give a damn about those
recently killed or in doing the right thing, I've got some prime desert
swamp land to sell you. Remember, for the Democrats in Hollywood or
otherwise, their “hate Trump” agenda and bottom line profits takes
precedence over all.
Now as for film two...a documentary that dares to speak and show the truth.
Recently, YouTube joined Amazon in blacklisting Danish independent
filmmaker Michael Hansen's anti-Islam documentary, “Killing Europe.”
This documentary, replete with a mix of on-the-ground footage and
interviews, tells the true story of how the ongoing “menace of muslim mass
immigration” into Europe...or should I say the menace of mass “invasion”
thereof... coupled with terrorist attacks, riots, gang rapes, and a total
lack of assimilation...is actually destroying Europe by causing its
"unique identity" and the very cultural foundations upon which it was
built to not so slowly start slipping away. And while YouTube had
previously hosted this very documentary on its platform for well over a
year, they now have decided within just a few days after Amazon Prime removed
it from their platform, to do the same.
However, while Amazon said that it “censored the documentary” solely because of “quality” concerns...yeah right...YouTube stated that the documentary was now
deemed to be in violation of its new “hate speech” policies no matter
that it was not in any violation during the entire year it has been up.
Saying to Hansen that the documentary content “glorified or incited
violence” against another person or group of people and as such is not
allowed on YouTube, YouTube went on to say that they do not allow any
content to be posted that “encourages hatred of another person or group
of people” based on their “membership in a protected group.” But since
when did the world's 1.8+ billion muslims become an officially YouTube
or otherwise “protected group” I wonder...maybe at the very same time
Facebook deemed muslims and islamists so.
Also telling Hansen that, “We know that this might be disappointing,
but it’s important to us that YouTube is a safe place for all. If
content breaks our rules, we remove it. If you think we’ve made a
mistake, you can appeal and we’ll take another look,” I also wonder
since when did YouTube take it upon themselves to become the proprietary
arbiters of what was to be an allowed “one point of view” alone, as
they now seem to be following Facebook in also becoming the champions of
those hell-bent on killing us all.
By YouTube removing “Killing Europe” from its platform we are
witnessing censorship of the first degree, and it's dangerous censorship at
that, for if one can neither see nor hear the truth about an enemy we
now all face, then the war is lost even before the first true battle has
begun. And sadly it seems that more and more venues we once thought would at
least “play fair”...as in allowing opposing views...even those venues are now being
taken over by those who deem that political correctness trumps even our right to
So there you have it, two films about violence but films different as
night and day for the film inciting violence actually is not First
Amendment protected "free speech" while the second film dissuading
violence most assuredly is.
