To say the radical left in this country — which these days is the entire Democratic Party — hates the National Rifle Association is an understatement of near biblical proportions. It would be more accurate to say they loathe the NRA with every fiber of their being and then some.
In fact, a good majority of progressives have equated the NRA to a terrorist group, despite the fact that not a single member of the organization has ever committed an act of terrorism or even violence for that matter.
The latest individual to make this accusation is former Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz who said that the NRA was “just shy” of being a terrorist group.
According to her recent interview with the Huffington Post, Wasserman Schultz is no fan of the gun rights organization, and she’s not afraid to show it.
“The NRA is kind of just shy of a terrorist organization,” Schultz told the magazine. “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.”Trending:
She then attacked recently-appointed NRA President Oliver North’s recent comments that gun rights are facing the strongest opposition to a civil right since the Jim Crow era by suggesting the NRA is actually responsible for mass murder.
“The Jim Crow laws actually resulted in the deaths of people standing up for their rights,” Wasserman Schultz said. “People that are dying as a result of the infection that is the spread of assault weapons thanks to the NRA are being murdered in cold blood without any cessation or interest on the part of the NRA to do anything about it.”
This comment just smacks of desperation, as Wasserman Schultz has been desperate to appear relevant again on the political scene. In case it wasn’t obvious, she’s failing. Miserably.
The NRA is not even remotely a terrorist organization, seeing as how they are not using threats of violence to demand some sort of political change. Not even close, actually.
They are a group comprised of citizens who strongly believe in the Second Amendment and desire to see those folks who own firearms to be fully trained to safely handle firearms without putting others and themselves at risk.
These sort of comments are only going to help expand the membership roles with the organization, a fact that’s been proven over and over again but still goes ignored by the left.
