“Fairfax County wants people to know they can prevent gun violence through its red-flag law,” a free advertisement opinion piece for a wannabe gun-grab group presented “courtesy” of The Washington Post claims.
The article is written by “Paul A. Friedman … the founder and executive director of Safer Country, an Alexandria-based gun-violence prevention nonprofit working to keep guns out of unsafe hands.” If your response was “Who? And “What?” you are not alone. At this writing, Friedman, who joined Twitter in 2009, has 13 followers. His organization’s account, which joined after his “group” was started in 2019, has 11, and has amassed 438 Facebook followers in that time. And his Guidestar nonprofit profile is equally unimpressive – for now (IRS filings have not been posted yet so we can’t tell how much money is being pumped into it). With WaPo exposure, those numbers could all change, particularly if someone in power finds it useful.
It might be relevant to ask why such an obscure effort rates major national exposure in a premier, nationally-heeded newspaper, but anyone who has followed the symbiotic suckfest between oath-breaking politicians, the DSM, and the violence monopoly cultists sees this happen daily. Plus, we’ve all been exposed over the years to plenty of Astroturf presenting itself as popular grassroots demand.
