At the CNN town hall the other night, Emma Gonzalez and other Parkland Massacre survivors were able to put the NRA's representative Dana Loesch on the spot.
Or tame the beast into submission.
But yesterday the NRA struck back with it's hideous leader Wayne LaPierre roaring like a maniac.
The head of the National Rifle Association, Wayne LaPierre, leveled a searing indictment on Thursday against liberal Democrats, the news media and political opportunists he said were joined together in a socialist plot to “eradicate all individual freedoms.”
Or a fascist.
And Dana Loesch never sounding so animal.
Many people are appalled Dana Loesch is an NRA spokesperson, but I live for it! It’s like hiring Westboro Baptist Church to do your PR. It removes all the focus-grouped polish to reveal all the hatefulness and crazy that have been there all along. #CPAC pic.twitter.com/Lc0WRmVn3S— Mrs. Betty Bowers (@BettyBowers) February 22, 2018
Although as we know, Loesch is also a crazed fascist.
And when she puts it all together she can also play a mean fascist clown
Here's @NRA Spokeswoman/paid shill Dana Loesch appearing at CNN Town Hall - and in case you don't know of her work, here's one of her NRA videos.— Pin Head (@SpikedCranium) February 22, 2018
And of course I had to edit it juuuuuust a tad ;) pic.twitter.com/Rj82gQLI89
And really what are we going to do with Nana Roach and her Trump loving NRA loonies?
And all those Cons, including many in this country, who love their guns more than they love their children.
Except appeal once again to our Dutch friends and their European allies, to help fight America's Nonsensical Rifle Addiction.
And of course, support the young people and their allies in the U.S., in their struggle to defeat the NRA and Donald Trump.
Grind those bloody bastards into the ground.
And make America truly great again...
The general consensus from the viewing audience and social media users after that CNN town hall was that Loesch and Rubio came away stinking like the hog swill they roll in. Loesch got put in her place by Sheriff Scott Israel, who is not exactly a big fan of NRA-backed politicians either (to say the least), and who just recently fired a deputy for not doing enough to stop the shooter in his tracks while on a call to the school. Rubio in particular may have just "shot himself in the foot" and effectively ended his political career by looking like a craven coward with no backbone. Hopefully, enough of these driven millennials plus the Puerto Rican refugees get registered to vote and turn Florida blue, or at least a shade of indigo or fuchsia with a heavy dollop of blue.
The GOP is panicking, and a cornered animal is known to spring and act irrationally when it fears even a perceived threat. That "threat" they fear most, of course, is blows to the bottom line "bleeding" their wallets dry. The NRA has become a toxic brand, and several major corporations are cutting ties with them -- rental cars, credit cards, FedEx -- it's kind of sad, but Corporate America's opinion carries more weight than the American people, in particular America's children. But as long as they're on the right side of history and against the GOP's merchants of murder, I say politics can take in strange bedfellows in unlikely arrangements all it likes.
I hope this ends up being a wave that turns the tide permanently against guns, period, that they become as embarrassing and unacceptable to support the use, ownership, sale, advertisement, or manufacture of as cigarettes or child pornography. I hope the NRA ends up being viewed in the company of NAMBLA and the KKK as a group that no one of any human decency wants to admit ever having belonged to. It took a youth movement in the 1970s to amend the constitution by adding the 26th. With any luck, plus the concerted energy of a massive get-out-the-vote and public demonstration effort, the youth movement in the 2010s will amend the constitution by repealing the Second. The kids are bigly good with the cyber. Let's hope they can reboot the system and delete bad lines of code.
as long as there is a second amendment, no hope
The second amendment allows for a "well regulated militia " in other words ... the National Guard. One simple court ruling will fix things.
The cold reality of a doctors observations versus some apocalyptic scenario where an AR 15 will save the day.
"Some bullet wounds are far more deadly than others. Understand that, and you can understand why there’s no place for high-velocity weapons in civilian hands, writes Heather Sher, a radiologist who helped treat victims of last week's Florida school shooting."
“The injury along the path of the bullet from an AR-15 is vastly different from a low-velocity handgun injury. The bullet from an AR-15 passes through the body like a cigarette boat traveling at maximum speed through a tiny canal. The tissue next to the bullet is elastic—moving away from the bullet like waves of water displaced by the boat—and then returns and settles back. This process is called cavitation; it leaves the displaced tissue damaged or killed. The high-velocity bullet causes a swath of tissue damage that extends several inches from its path. It does not have to actually hit an artery to damage it and cause catastrophic bleeding. Exit wounds can be the size of an orange,” Sher writes in The Atlantic.
watched the NRA at its "festival" of hate and fear mongering. Its was sick as were the two mentioned here.
There Second Amendment was written in a time when a "militia" was necessary. This thing with guns is simply crazy. Its hard to believe these people want guns in case their government comes after them. They carry on about the government wanting to take everything over and take away their guns. Well if the government wanted to do that, their guns would not do them any good. These people must live in a film script of some sort. The American Armed Forces could lay waste to any city it wants and no guns the citizens own are going to help them in that case. The only thing which keeps a country democratic is several viable political parties and a voting public, who remain involved at the local level.
Hate Liberals?Bite Me
If Jesus had a gun...
Thanks for the Dutch show - I'm sending it to a friend who is in Flanders right now.
CNN town hall: Students question lawmakers, NRA (full transcript, video)
Hi Jackie...I think it will take a long time to turn Americans against guns, but polls show that most of them are now in favour of gun control, and as you can see the NRA has never looked so scared and so desperate. I think progressives can make real progress on that issue. But most importantly, if they channel the energy of the young, and get out the vote, they can do real damage to the Republicans, and drive the monstrous Donald Trump from office...
hi RT...I am sadly only too familiar with the damage inflicted by high velocity bullets. And why if it was possible I would like every would be gun owner to spend some time in a hospital ER, or watching a pathologist carry out an autopsy of somebody killed by gun violence. And then imagine what it would be like if they were lying there, or some member of their family. I guarantee you they would never look at guns again the same way...
hi e.a.f.... I only saw a few clips, but they were more enough to convince me that the NRA is on the verge of a nervous breakdown. The good news is that according to what I read, the rhetoric may have been incendiary, but the response from the CPAC audience was only lukewarm. So clearly some progress is being made. However, whether it will lead to real change, remains to be seen...
