The Trump family loves to use national tragedies to justify their tainted politics.
According to Business Insider, Donald Trump Jr. found the shooting an opportunity to defend the NRA, especially in a political climate advocating for gun reform following the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on February 14.
Let's back up for a second. Authorities revealed the identity of the shooter as Nasim Aghdam, who allegedly targeted her partner that worked at the office. She also had her own channel on the social video platform. According to USA Today, she posted a video recently accusing YouTube of filtering and censoring her content, since her videos had recently experienced a dramatic drop in views. She experienced demonetization as a result of her content dropping in audience views.
Instagram and YouTube blocked Aghdam's accounts shortly after her name was released. So of course, on Twitter, Trump Jr.—who participates in big game hunting abroad—asked the world if the same situation would've happened if the shooter were a member of the NRA.
You think there’s any chance whatsoever that a mass shooters hateful Instagram and YouTube channels would be pulled immediately if they were NRA members as opposed to liberal Vegan PETA activists? Asking for a few million friends in the @NRA— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) April 4, 2018
Aghdam was an animal rights advocate who supported PETA, so now right-wingers are using this anecdote to bash liberals as well.
