Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam declared a state of emergency ahead of a 2nd Amendment rally Monday as thousands headed to the Virginia State Capitol to rally against overreaching Democrat gun control proposals.
The Daily Caller reports an NBC reporter flatly and falsely called the peaceful event a “white supremacist rally” in a now deleted tweet.
Democrat Governor Ralph Northam, said after the obviously peaceful protest, “We are all thankful that today passed without incident.
The teams successfully de-escalated what could have been a volatile situation.”
Critics were quick to call out Northam’s misleading statement, noting that the protest was peaceful and there was nothing to “de-escalate.”
