During a conversation with Ana Navarro and co-hosts of “CNN Tonight” about the tragic shooting in Uvalde, Texas, Jonah Goldberg attempted to put America’s problem with mass shootings into “perspective” by citing accurate statistics on gun violence. This did not go over well.
Goldberg, editor-in-chief of the Dispatch, said that while he shares the “moral outrage” many feel over “how horrific and just morally repugnant these slaughters are,” it’s wrong to tell parents they should be “paralyzed with fear about their own kids.”

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
