The Left should start a new reality show The Biggest Liar

The competition would be very tough, and I would not bet against noted liar Debbie Wasserman Schultz

Debbie Wasserman Schultz is another of those people who will never be mistaken for pro-gun. However, just so that no one gets confused in the least. Wasserman Schultz decides to join in on attempts from the anti-gun forces to stigmatize gun owners.

Why else would she join in with the chorus of people trying to paint the nation’s oldest civil rights organization as a terrorist group?

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) had stern words for the National Rifle Association on Tuesday, responding to the gun group’s new president attacking student survivors of the shooting in Parkland, Florida, for allegedly engaging in “civil terrorism.” 

“The NRA is kind of just shy of a terrorist organization,” Schultz told HuffPost. “They have done everything they can to perpetuate the culture of violence that we have in our country with the spread of assault weapons across the nation.”

Wow! Talk about going full out BS right off the bat! How does she do it? She knows she is spreading propaganda. She knows she is defaming and falsely smearing millions of law abiding Americans. She knows, yet does it anyway. The left is evil

If you need a new cooler, don’t buy a Yeti brand

Simply tone deaf decision here

Just so you understand what the NRA Foundation does

For years YETI Coolers have been a hot item for sportsmen at the Friends of NRA Foundation Banquet and Auction events around the country.

These Foundation events raise money to support youth programs and educational programs nationwide. The youth of America who benefit from these programs are the future hunters, hikers, fishermen/women, bikers, campers, wildlife photographers, mountain climbers, sportsmen/women and conservationists who will protect our natural resources and recreational lands.

Suddenly, without prior notice, YETI has declined to do business with The NRA Foundation saying they no longer wish to be an NRA vendor, and refused to say why.  They will only say they will no longer sell products to The NRA Foundation.  That certainly isn’t sportsmanlike. In fact, YETI should be ashamed.  They have declined to continue helping America’s young people enjoy outdoor recreational activities.  These activities enable them to appreciate America and enjoy our natural resources with wholesome and healthy outdoor recreational and educational programs.

Gun safety activists triggered by NRA’s Eddie Eagle gun safety program

The truth about the left, which the Cult of Gun Control is part of, is easy to see. Just ignore their rhetoric, and watch their real goals

The precepts were simple: “If you find a gun, stop, don’t touch, leave the area, tell an adult.” These days it’s been changed to “Stop, Don’t Touch, Run Away, Tell a Grown-Up.”

Utterly non-controversial right?

Well, apparently not. Eddie Eagle has been stirring up controversy for decades.

According to an article from Splinter News, Eddie Eagle was conceived as a trojan horse.

To really understand the NRA’s agenda with Eddie Eagle, it’s important to go back to the beginning. Eddie was essentially conceived as a Trojan Horse. The character and program was developed in 1988 by Marion Hammer, the ultra-powerful Florida lobbyist behind a string of infamous gun laws, including the “Stand Your Ground” law. According to the Violence Policy Center—which released a report in 1997 describing Eddie Eagle as “Joe Camel with feathers”—Hammer created the program as a way to deter lawmakers from passing Child Access Prevention (CAP) Laws, which criminalize keeping firearms easily within reach of children.

That’s right, a program which teaches children not to touch guns is somehow responsible for making them want to buy guns.

Hammer’s argument was that, instead of punishing adults for keeping a dangerous object around children, children could learn to simply not touch or use a gun that they might have access to—effectively shifting the responsibility of not getting shot by a gun an adult left lying around to kids.

Ah, so education is bad? Informing kids is bad? Talk about obscene thinking. The fact here is simple, the left hates firearms, and it has a goal of one day stripping all rights to firearms from the people. So, any group that supports the natural right of gun ownership must be demonized, no matter how much it stresses and promotes safety.

Here we go, noted publicity seekers claim the NRA like, basically, you know, like, totally kind of like threatened us!

Ah, those sneaky anti-gun kids. We are told they are wise beyond their years, we are told to revere them. But if we dare to disagree with them, we are mean, and are attacking children. So, many people do not question them, because they are afraid of being accused of attacking children. Me? I am different. These students have chosen to become activists and I will not hesitate to refute the false narratives and empty rhetoric they use. You see, it matters not what people like me, or the NRA say, because activists do not allow truth to guide their strategies

Two vocal leaders, David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez, spoke with CBSN Monday to discuss the movement and why they believe they can through the partisan divide on gun control and drive real change in policy.

Both Hogg and Gonzalez, who refer to themselves as members of the “mass shooting generation,” say they’ve received death threats in response to their efforts in launching the movement. But they aren’t letting threats deter them from making progress.

“There’s always been people who are going to want to harm us,” Gonzalez said. “I’m not going to pretend that this like opened my eyes to a cruel and harmful world … When it comes right down to it, we already knew that this world was going to be tough. So getting death threats like that doesn’t really faze us.”

Asked about the NRA’s response to their movement, Hogg responded: “I think it just goes to prove what exactly they are. I don’t think NRA members are bad people at all. I think they’re responsible gun owners that want to become politically active and make their voices heard in this democracy, and I think that’s an excellent thing.

“I think the problem comes in when it’s people at the top of this organization that don’t listen to their constituents and continue to scare people into buying more guns, creating more violence, so they can scare more people and sell more guns,” he continued. “The people at the top of the NRA are no longer working for the people that are in their organization. They’re working on behalf of the gun lobby.”

Both Hogg and Gonzalez say the NRA has reached out to them, but not in a positive way.

“The way that they’ve been reaching out to us is basically threatening us,” Hogg said.

OK, give us an example. It is a serious accusation to say someone is “threatening” you. So, show us the evidence. Of course that will not happen. It never does with the Left. This is what they do. They make accusations, usually completely irresponsible ones, then simply repeat that message. They know the media will never challenge them or ask for examples. They know their fellow leftists will never question them. They will simply regurgitate these false accusations, because it is all about furthering the narrative They are trying to win a political fight by smearing  their opponents, a tried a true strategy they have used for many years.

Tom Knighton is skeptical as well

As for threats, I have no doubt they’ve gotten them. I get them from time to time and I have a much lower profile, so yeah, they probably get them.

But the NRA is “basically threatening” them?

Sorry. It doesn’t pass the sniff test.

Right now, the NRA is engaged in the fight of its life as politicians jump on the backs of these kids and use their rage to justify a proverbial grab bag of anti-gun proposals they’ve wanted for years but haven’t been able to get. At the same time, they’re being vilified as the evilest organization operating in the United States today. The last thing they’re going to do is threaten a couple of loud high school kids.

If the NRA has threatened them, I want names and specifics. Not any of this “basically” stuff. I want to know what was said and by whom. I want actual details.

After all, this is a day and age when people seem to think using the wrong pronoun is violence, it’s not hard to imagine something being twisted to resemble a threat by this crowd.

Frankly, Hogg’s credibility is precisely nil with me. I think he’ll do anything he can to get things his way, and I think the adults around him have no problem manipulating him so they can get those things too. Without specifics, I’m not about to believe him for a moment.

Exactly!

Colion Noir NAILS it

Oh no, NRA Tweet causes Offendeditis outbreak

Oh, the tragedy of Offendeditis

First the Tweet that triggered some hack at USA Today

Oh no, the horror!

Unfortunately, USA Today‘s Josh Hafner felt it was necessary to direct everyone’s attention to the tweet. You know, because it was so awful.

On Wednesday morning, as students nationwide protested to mark the one-month anniversary of the high school shooting in Parkland, Fla., the National Rifle Association promoted a glamorized image of an AR-15 — the same kind of gun used to kill 17 people in the massacre.

“I’ll control my own guns, thank you,” the NRA tweeted at 11:30 a.m. ET, as students’ walkout demonstrations rippled across the United States.

Many students, such as those at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where last month’s shooting occurred, said they walked out Wednesday to gain visibility as they push for lawmakers to ban assault rifles like the one used in the shooting.

The AR-15 image came from an NRA article praising the weapon as “the musket of its era.” Unlike muskets, which fired about one round every 20 seconds, AR-15-style rifles have become the favorite gun of mass shooters looking to fire about one round every half second.

Several mass shootings have relied on AR-15-style guns, including: Parkland, Sutherland Springs, Texas; Las Vegas; Orlando; and Newtown, Conn.

So, the NRA, which stresses gun safety, AND better background checks, AND harsher sentences for violent felons should just be smeared as a “terrorist” organization that kills kids without ever speaking up on its own behalf? I do not think the Left understands how free speech works
