To WND, "America" = Right-Wing Activists
Topic: WorldNetDaily

A Jan. 16 WorldNetDaily article by Taylor Rose carries the subhead "America's reaction to sweeping gun control agenda." And who does Rose think is "America" for the purposes of his article?

  • Representatives of two right-wing pro-gun groups, the Second Amendment Foundation and Gun Owners of America.
  • A representative of the right-wing Heartland Institute.
  • Republican Sens. Marco Rubio and Rand Paul.
  • A disgraced plagiarist.
  • And a sheriff who vows not to enforce any law he disagrees with.

That may be an accurate depiction of WND's readership and staff (especially the plagiarism part), but it's hardly representative of America.

Also, Rose seems to be picking up some bad habits from his WND colleagues -- is harticle includes only right-wing activists criticizing Obama and no one is permitted to respond to the criticism.
