Shannon Watts Used a Fake Tweet to Libel Virginia Candidate Who Opposes Gun Control

Shannon Watts

Why do gun control activists have such an aversion to the truth? Oh, wait. Never mind. We know that one already.

The facts simply aren’t on their side. So what’s the Head Hoplophobic Harridan to do when a GOP US House candidate threatens to unseat the compliant Dem who dutifully parrots her anti-gun talking points?

Simple. Lie about the challenger and use the falsehood to defame him while trying to boost your favored candidate at the same time.

As the Washington Free Beacon reports . . .

Moms Demand Action founder Shannon Watts shared a fake photograph to attack GOP congressional hopeful Nick Freitas in a now-deleted Thursday tweet.

Feitas is running against Virginia Rep. Abigail Spanberger for the seat in Congress from Virginia’s seventh district. And Spanberger just loves her some Moms Demand Action endorsements.

MDA jefe Watts found (ginned up?) a phony tweet from Freitas with an image of a t-shirt design that used the Moms Demand Action logo along surrounded by stick figures in various sexual positions. Then she retweeted the deepfake tweet and tried to use the false claim that Freitas supported the shirt to get her readers — those she hasn’t blocked from her Twitter account yet — to donate to Spanberger’s campaign.

There’s only one problem. The Freitas tweet she used was as phony as a pro-2A Moms Demand Action member…and Watts knew it.

The t-shirt in question was designed by Mom-At-Arms, a Second Amendment rights group, in April 2019. The photoshopped image Watts used showed Freitas promoting the shirt on August 30, 2016. Jill McDaniel, who founded Mom-At-Arms in December 2018, confirmed the shirt did not exist at the time of Freitas’s supposed promotion.

(emphasis added)

That’s because Watts had her attorneys send Mom-At-Arms a cease and desist letter last year, demanding that they stop using the Bloomberg org’s logo as part of the t-shirt design (which Mom-At-Arms did).

But the fake tweet Watts used was dated three years before the t-shirt was created.

So let’s recap, shall we? The t-shirt was created in 2019. Watts had her attorneys shut down production of the t-shirt that same year. Last week Watts used a fake tweet (dated three years before the shirt was made) to damage a candidate who threatens to unseat someone who can reliably be depended upon to spout Moms Demand Action and Everytown talking points.

Just another day in the never-ending effort to take control of the political levers of power and use them to disarm Americans at every opportunity.

Were we shocked that Watts stooped so low? Please. We’re only surprised she was embarrassed enough that she deleted the tweet when she was caught.

    Watts is a pro PR person,..,what else would you expect?

    1. avatar Southern Cross says:

      She used to do the PR for Monsanto. I think that clearly states her morals and ethics.

      1. avatar neiowa says:

        No. Monsanto means diddly squat.

    Following idiocy like this is a part of why I don’t use Twitter. I never would have seen this except for this article. I see her, her tweets, and twitter to be completely worthless. Follow at your own risk, if not your demise.

    With her incomparable talent for lying, Shannon has a great career ahead of her as an anchor for CNN. You go b!tch!

    What is wrong with that broads face,? looks kinda warped like her brain.

    1. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

      It’s my favorite photo of her. It shows how effed up she looks, matching her ideology.
      The pic reminds me of “Carl” in Caddshack.

      1. avatar Klaus Von Schmitto says:

        Farago admonished me with a threat of a ban if I said anything else about her f’d up face.

        I hope with this latest crap even people who aren’t prone to personal attacks can see how ugly she is inside as well as out.

        “It’s my favorite photo of her.”

        I still say that’s the look on her face she would have if Dirk ever dropped trou for her… 🙂

          If Dirk had a fan club, I’d buy a life membership.

      Tell me that is not the same look.

    A logical note: she may not have known it was fake, because she may not have paid attention to the dates. That may be sloppy slander or libel, but assuming she paid attention to the date of the fake tweet and knew it was a fake is sloppy reasoning. I’d greatly appreciate when deconstructing our opponents agendas if we stuck to sound reason, logic, and human rights philosophy.

      To her kind, not only is gender fluid, but so is history.

      Is there any other kind?

    Anti-constitutionalist’s sense of morality is situational, based on incident and emotion, instead of rooted in God’s word and law.
    Anti-constitutionalist’s stand for nothing. The situation determines their support for an issue and their emotions rule, not reason and rationality.
    Moreover, they recognize the contradiction, but still cling to their situational justice. Situational justice is the tool of dictators, tyrants, despots, and unjust, unrighteous monarchs. It has no place in a free constitutional republic.
    In which the United States of America is……………….
    Anti-Constitutionalist’s=Anti-Americans=Enemies of the United States…

    After 4 years of the most diabolical schemes to overthrow a duly elected POTUS and thus far nothing serious has happened to the democRat Party they feel emboldened and will say and do anything to advance the cause. Unless Republicans get tough and expose the long despicable racist Gun Control history of democRat Party it’s over. The usual “sensible explanations” used in an attempt to reason with democRats does not cut it. If the Rat Party is not cut down to size and they are perceived as do-gooders it’s over.
    Too many fall for democRat propaganda and come on forums to regurgitate what is proven to be concocted libel and slander against the POTUS and the Republican Party..Then there are the bigots that come to forums and show their ignorant behinds only to give gun owners a rotten image and that image cost votes. Then there are those who talk the talk about firearms and turn around and call the POTUS “excrement.” Frankly, those kind of self proclaimed gun owners are too stupid to ever see the error of their ways and can go pound sand.
    Today there is a bounty of firearms that exist because Donald John Trump was elected POTUS. He did not get elected by slackers and whiners. He was elected because America was fed up and said no to what dropped out of bill ayers’ communist behind. The democRat Party continues to shove marxism down the throat of America. The democRat Party is fixated on your 2A Right. Fight their sickness in a voting booth or fight their sickness in the streets…Your choice.
