Calm, Cool and Reasoned @NRA
The NRA’s ad attacking President Obama would be hilarious if the subject at hand were not so deadly and darkly ironic; much as the right wing threats of ‘Civli War‘ sound like a child who disagrees with Mommy swearing they aren’t a part of the family anymore, except these are children armed with assault rifles, paranoid fantasies, and a rage born of impotent frustration. It is so easy to laugh at the spectacle of state legislators trying to pass laws banning federal actions that one forgets that these are grown men and elected officials who are engaging in these kinds of antics a mere month after the slaughter at Sandy Hook Elementary. Incidentally, well over 900 Americans have been killed by firearms since then. At least 14 of them were children under the age of 12.
We are arguing with adults who cannot accept reality and so they try to manufacture their own where government agents are slaughtering citizens so that the public will support the New World Order or aliens or whatever the hell childhood fantasy they’re clinging to. The man who took in kids running from the massacre is being relentlessly harassed by these demented troglodytes who have sold their humanity to their gun lust. How dare we let people such as this make any determinations about public safety and then call ourselves responsible?
8 May his days be few;
may another take his office!
9 May his children be fatherless
and his wife a widow!
10 May his children wander about and beg,
seeking food far from the ruins they inhabit!
11 May the creditor seize all that he has;
may strangers plunder the fruits of his toil!
12 Let there be none to extend kindness to him,
nor any to pity his fatherless children!
-and then produce a commercial calling this President (who has had more death threats than any other) a hypocrite because his daughters have Secret Service protection at their school. They threaten terrorism and civil war while calling themselves patriots. They are running a racket where they are scamming themselves while endangering us all.
Here’s what the NRA and their masters in the firearms industry are going to discover; we will ignore them and work around them if they don’t want to be part of the conversation. Their numbers aren’t quite what they say they are and there are gun owners who are absolutely disgusted and repelled by their amoral tactics. If individuals freak out and try to start their own ‘civil wars’ they will be arrested and imprisoned. If legislatures pass illegal laws they will be repealed. If nothing changes, our children will continue to be sacrificed to Moloch so that the paranoid half men can keep polishing their prosthetic penises and fantasizing about overthrowing the state.
The NRA is nothing but a collection of tiny bullies with megaphones and money; that they are so hysterically doubling down on their losing hand demonstrates how tenuous their position really is. They have been backed up on their heels and are making crazy threats because they don’t know what else to do. This is the time to keep pushing at them until they totter and fall; we need to teach them that we are more relentless than them, that we care more than they do, and that the security and liberty of our nation and our children are far more important than their hobby.
