Jorge Ramos Allows NRA-Parkland Conspiracy Theory To Air Unchallenged



JORGE RAMOS, SENIOR ANCHOR, UNIVISION: Are you fighting President Trump? I believe that’s the main question.

MANUEL OLIVER: I am asking for Trump’s attention, OK? Which is not the same as fighting President Trump. President Trump showed support to the NRA, and I…

RAMOS: To the National Rifle Association.

OLIVER: The National Rifle Association, which from our point of view, is part of the conspiracy that murdered our son.

RAMOS: Do you believe that your son died due to the NRA somehow, or that the NRA is partly responsible for Joaquín’s death?

OLIVER: I believe that the NRA bears great responsibility for Joaquín’s death.

RAMOS: What is that responsibility like? How do you argue that?

OLIVER: I argue...they have different...responsibilities. There is a very clear one for me, which is the complicity with some politicians who cannot discuss new laws because they and ethical commitments with the NRA. And then there is a propaganda, which from my point of view is fake- that purports to convince people that by defending the NRA you defend the Constitution and the Second Amendment. I believe that a confusion was created- they set out to create a confusion that some people are incapable of analyzing the way that I believe it should be analyzed. No one is against your using the right to defend yourself, but...this isn’t defense, this is an attack.
