The man who would have been Vice President of the United States has just been caught in a massive lie.
Virginia Senator Tim Kaine refused to let reality get in the way of a liberal political narrative, and within hours of this week’s terrorist attack at Ohio State took to Twitter to blame the ISIS-inspired car-and-knife attack on American gun owners.
“Deeply saddened by the senseless act of gun violence at Ohio State this morning,” Kaine tweeted, in part.
But the attack was not a shooting, and Kaine took to Twitter without first confirming any facts.
The only gun used was fired by the police officer who finally arrived to put an end to the rampage, which was targeted in a “gun free zone.”
In reality the attack, carried out by a Somali refugee, was a copycat of ISIS-inspired attacks in Europe, where homegrown terrorists drove a car into a crowd of people, then used a knife to try and kill others.
But since when have gun grabbers ever told the truth about anything?
The anti-gun agenda is just one branch on the liberal philosophical tree, which is rooted in the belief that one has a duty to lie if it advances a political goal.
For liberals, the end justifies the means. If knowingly lying about a terrorist attack benefits the anti-gun agenda, then that’s the only truth to which they adhere.
