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

She really stepped in it this time.

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.

Trump or Biden, who will win?

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.

Matthew McConaughey Tells Americans To ‘Embrace’ Results Of 2020 Election ‘Whichever Way It Goes’

Published

Actor Matthew McConaughey has a message for Americans ahead of the 2020 presidential election and to be honest, it’s one you probably wouldn’t have guessed would come from someone with his amount of Hollywood clout. We’re all so used to raging liberals just hating on the president for no logical reason that when someone from the entertainment industry actually offers some sort of reasonable response to the political madness of our time it takes you off guard. According to McConaughey, regardless of which way the election works out, Americans should “embrace” it. via Fox News: McConaughey, 50, promoted his new book “Greenlights” on “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday and spoke about his motto: “When faced with the inevitable, get relative.” Applying that motto to the race between President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, he said, “It’s not inevitable who’s going to win.” “After that happens, whether it’s an incumbent or whether it’s Biden, after it happens is when it’s time to get constructive and not be in denial,” McConaughey stated. “It’s time to get constructive and not deny the fact of whatever’s happened and embrace the situation,” he said speaking about the future president. “Whoever is going to be commander in chief and president of the United States of America, that’s not something, hopefully, that we’re going to deny or be able to argue,” the actor told the “Fox & Friends” crew. “I hope it’s a clean election,” McConaughey went on. “Whichever way it goes I hope it’s clean and that there’s no debate.” Now, embracing it doesn’t mean just going with the flow completely and not holding whoever wins up to the standards of morality and the Constitution. But it does mean not being a crybaby and throwing a fit, burning neighborhoods to the ground and looting…

Three Out Of Four Voters Believe Big Tech Has Too Much Influence On Political News

Published

on

According to a new poll published by the Washington Examiner/YouGov has found that three out of four registered voters think that social media companies have way too much pull and influence over the kind of news that users see and read, with a large swath of the population believing these companies are politically biased. The poll found that nearly 76 percent of individuals surveyed thought that social media companies have far too much influence, compared to a measly six percent who thought they had too little. A scrawny 11 percent said they have just the right amount of influence. via Washington Examiner: These results come after social media giants Facebook and Twitter suppressed sharing a story about emails purportedly obtained from a computer belonging to Hunter Biden that could create political problems for his father, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, shortly before the election. Republicans have charged Twitter and Facebook with making an “in-kind contribution” to Biden’s campaign by preventing users from sharing the news on their platforms. Conservatives have been pressing Senate Republicans to hold hearings on the social media companies’ handling of this story soon. In the same poll, the public is split on the question of whether the former vice president has been honest about his son’s business activities in other countries. A plurality of registered voters, 39%, believe social media bans have been biased against the Republican Party. This includes a huge majority of Republicans at 82% and a plurality of independents at 37%, though only 6% of Democrats agree. “Another 20% of registered voters believe that social media is biased against both parties. This includes 28% of Democrats and 26% of independents, though only 6% of Republicans agree,” W. James Antle III wrote in his report. “Just 9% think social media content bans are biased…
