Just when you thought the gun control debate couldn’t get any nastier, individuals on the left decided to take it to another level.
As you might already know, left-wingers have attacked National Rifle Association Spokeswoman Dana Loesch, calling her a “murderer.” One of the students at the Parkland shooting compared Senator Marco Rubio to a mass shooter.
The NRA itself has taken a sound drubbing from the news outlets and on social media. The gun control crowd is now referring to the non-profit lobbying group as a terrorist organization. Yes, that’s right folks. They believe that the NRA is as evil as ISIS and Al Qaeda.
The left’s latest display of asinine garbage is their new smear campaign against the NRA. Right now, #NRAIsATerroristOrganization is trending on Twitter, and left-wingers are falling all over themselves to make ridiculous arguments as to why this group should be labeled as such.
First, we’ll start with everyone’s favorite leftist, documentary filmmaker Michael Moore. On Friday, he tweeted:
“The NRA is a terrorist organization. The media should speak of the NRA in the same way they do ISIS. Total ISIS-inspired deaths in US = 79. Thanks to the NRA & the politicians they buy, we’ve had 1.2 MILLION American gun deaths since John Lennon was shot dead in NYC #NRAKillsKids”
Wise words from the creator of Fahrenheit 9/11, which depicted pre-invasion Iraq as a blissful utopia with children frolicking in the streets. But he wasn’t the only one. Others who share his views also made their feelings known:
“When dead children became an acceptable price to pay in order to preserve the 2nd Amendment, the #NRA became a domestic terrorist organization.”
“I’m reminded today of the story of our founding fathers who, 250 years ago, bravely, took large cash bribes to break away from England and create a new nation dedicated to the proposition that gun manufacturers should know no curb on their profits.
As a small business owner, I have an account with you
Come Monday I will be switching to another delivery company that doesnt have ties to a domestic terrorist organization like the @NRA”
Unfortunately, this sentiment isn’t just being expressed on social media. Left-wing group MoveOn.org created a petition titled “Declare the NRA a Terrorist Organization.” The Guardian published a piece with the headline, “After Florida, I see the NRA as nothing less than a terrorist organization.” Not to be outdone, Patheos put out a piece entitled “Designate NRA Domestic Terrorist Organization Under Patriot Act.”
Here are the comments from leftists criticizing law enforcement for their incompetence in preventing the shooting:
Yep, that’s it. They had nothing to say about it.
Other Domestic Terrorist Groups
Did you know that over 40,000 people died in car accidents in 2016? You know what this means, right? Everyone who drives a car is a terrorist. But wait — there’s more.
Drug overdoses killed 52,404 Americans in 2016. 12,990 of these were related to opioid use. I suppose drug dealers and doctors should be considered terrorists as well.
Last, but certainly not least, hundreds and thousands of babies are killed in abortions each year. If the left knew about this, they would most certainly put Planned Parenthood on the list of domestic terrorist organizations, right? If anyone has Michael Moore’s phone number, can you please let him know that he has more work to do please?
