Alyssa Milano Says NRA ‘Doesn’t Care About Members or Troops,’ Immediately Gets Demolished on Twitter

She really stepped in it this time.

Published

Actress and outspoken political activist Alyssa Milano has been on tear recently against the National Rifle Association, having tweeted out a rather obscene post against the organization, completely ignoring the irony of her having armed bodyguards by her side.

Well, apparently she hasn’t filled her quota for hashtag activism against the NRA yet, so she decided to post yet another ridiculous tweet slamming the organization.

However, things didn’t quite go her way this time around, as folks from all around the Internet gathered to demolish her on social media.

To try to buttress her argument, Milano then quoted an article for Business Insider from 2013 written by Walter Hickey, who is currently the chief culture writer for Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight:

This is complete poppycock.

The NRA Foundation has given $61 million to a variety of local groups since 2010; 500 schools received more than $7.3 million from 2010 through 2016; 4-H groups have received $12.2 million since 2010, and Boy Scout troops and councils received $4 million.

As far as not caring about veterans, try again: the NRA has worked with Congress to support the Veterans Second Amendment Protection Act, and more recently, the Mental Health and Safe Communities Act.

And here’s a sample of the pummeling Milano received from those her comments angered:

Ouch.

The NRA is a great organization that has fought hard to preserve our Second Amendment rights from those who would strip away our means of protecting our life, liberty, and property.

The reason this amendment exists is because our Founders recognized that mankind is a fallen creation and is susceptible to great acts of evil. Each person must take full responsibility for their own safety in order to ensure these wicked individuals are restrained from fulfilling their deplorable desires.

What Milano doesn’t seem to understand is that the harder she fights against the NRA, the more folks join its ranks. This is a lesson Parkland survivor and anti-gun nut David Hogg has learned the hard way.

The attendance for the NRA convention this past weekend hit an all new high, likely driven by the sentiments of the March for Our Lives movement Hogg helped launch.

Milano ought to do her own legitimate research into the issue of gun violence and gun control and see what the facts really say rather than parroting liberal talking points in a lame attempt to remain relevant.

Beto O’Rourke Drops Bombshell About Connection To Slavery

Where’s the liberal outrage?

Published

on

In a move that should, if the left were consistent, spell the end of his political aspirations, Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke revealed that both he and his wife are descendants of slave owners. Yes, a consistent application of the beliefs of the modern-day progressive should see Beto dropping from the race and spending the rest of his life attempting to atone for the sins of his ancestors. Probably not going to actually happen though. You know, because hypocrisy or something. via The Daily Wire: The failed Texas Senate candidate, who is losing ground in the presidential race, made the revelation in a Medium post, saying that he was recently given documents that revealed his family’s past. “A paternal great-great-great grandfather of mine, Andrew Cowan Jasper, owned these two women in the 1850s,” O’Rourke wrote. “There are also records showing that a maternal great-great-great grandfather, Frederick Williams, most likely owned slaves in the 1860s (“most likely,” because we are not certain that the Frederick Williams who is my ancestor and the Frederick Williams who owned slaves are the same person, but there’s enough circumstantial data to lead me to conclude that it’s likely).” “Records also showed that Amy had an ancestor who owned slaves and another who was a member of the Confederate Army,” O’Rourke added. O’Rourke’s claim comes after the media last week tried to tie Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s opposition to reparations to the fact that his great-great-grandfathers owned slaves. When the media tried to push that narrative they were met with the fact that former President Barack Obama’s ancestors were slave owners. Sen. Kamala Harris’ ancestors also owned slaves. So where is all of the classic liberal outrage over these folks having this sort of bloodline? Surely they would have no problem striking at these kind…

Trump Administration Set To Carry Out Major Crackdown On Asylum Abuse

This is going to make liberals absolutely furious.

Published

on

The Trump administration has announced some major changes in the country’s current asylum policies that will inevitably lead to a sizable reduction in the number of individuals that are eligible for asylum who are trying to enter the country at the southern border. If you listen closely, you can hear the left already throwing a total fit over this, ready to compare the president to a whole plethora of deplorable fascist world leaders throughout history. via Daily Wire: “The new rule, published in the Federal Register, would require most migrants entering through America’s southern border to first seek asylum in one of the countries they traversed – whether in Mexico, in Central America, or elsewhere on their journey,” Fox News reported. In a statement, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) highlighted three limited exceptions: (1) an alien who demonstrates that he or she applied for protection from persecution or torture in at least one of the countries through which the alien transited en route to the United States, and the alien received a final judgment denying the alien protection in such country; (2) an alien who demonstrates that he or she satisfies the definition of “victim of a severe form of trafficking in persons” provided in 8 C.F.R. § 214.11; or, (3) an alien who has transited en route to the United States through only a country or countries that were not parties to the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees, the 1967 Protocol, or the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment. The statement went on to detail that a very small minority of these individuals actually receive asylum, however, a large number of requests burdens the system and undermines its humanitarian purposes. The statement also notes the large number of requests…
