For the Left, it's guns that kill people, not people. So she's talking about characteristics of the guns, which in the minds of the Left are sentient agents. Perhaps in this specific case, however, the person holding the gun (thereby enabling the gun to do what it wanted to do) was brave in enabling the gun. Either way, the targeted police are obviously the enemy of both the courageous and brave gun and its enabler. I know that some pressure cookers are courageous and brave sentient agents as well, as evidenced in the Boston marathon bombing, where the pressure cooker sacrificed itself valorously. Perhaps it will get 72 virgin saucepans in heaven...
CNN Anchor Refers to Dallas Gunman’s Actions as ‘Courageous and Brave’
"During a discussion on the Dallas Police headquarters shooting this afternoon, CNN anchor Fredricka Whitfield appears to have really misspoken in referring to the gunman’s actions as “courageous and brave.”
Whitfield was speaking to CNN legal analyst Philip Holloway when she said this:
“It was very courageous and brave, if not crazy as well, to open fire on the police headquarters, and now you have this scene, this standoff. So you believe these are the hallmarks of more than one person’s involvement.”We have reached out to CNN for comment."
