New recruitment ad for the NRA calls for armed insurrection

The NRA recruitment video that is even upsetting gun owners

 

Quote

“They use their media to assassinate real news,” the woman’s voice says scornfully. “They use their schools to teach children that their president is another Hitler. They use their movie stars and singers and comedy shows and award shows to repeat their narrative over and over again.”

It may sound like an excerpt from North Korean state television railing against the evil Americans and their corrupt democracy on the far side of the Pacific.

But these are the opening lines of a new recruitment video by the National Rifle Association of America that is headlined by conservative television host Dana Loesch. The Blaze personality and NRA spokeswoman doesn’t hold back, painting a stark picture of the U.S. political climate that some have interpreted as an ad designed to provoke fear, if not incite violence.

 

It's amazing to me how liberals and the left are simultaneously cowering, triggered snowflakes and also an armed paramilitary threat that needs to be crushed by armed patriotic citizens. In other news that I'm sure is in no way connected to this new ad... Gun Sales Are Plummeting and Trump Wants to Help

I 'm still considering taking some unarmed self defense classes once I heal up from surgery.  I did take the free karate class after the election but decided to hold off on taking further classes until I had surgery.  At any rate I hope these conservative fucks realize that while I will never start a fight I'm not going to roll over and die cause they want me to.

NRA Spokesman did a reply to all us "lefties" that didn't like the first video.

Spoiler

 

My favorite is the 2 examples, like are we not going to talk about all the violent things they did with Obama?

After the election my family and I seriously considered looking into getting a gun cause even though we live in the suburbs in a pretty liberal district we were still honestly terrified when orangefuckface won.

I have a friend who's a major gun enthusiast.   After the election he came to me and said that all his liberal friends are telling him they are interested in buying a gun because Trump has them so worried.  I think the NRA is missing a tremendous marketing opportunity.  They should be pitching the left not the right.  All the Trump supporters have all the guns they can use/afford.  There's a whold market among liberals completely left untapped.

Well, that wasn't aggressive  and divisive, was it? Yeah, hubs and I are talking about getting a couple of firearms. Because I feel like I need to protect myself from that looney woman and that very angry man with the teeny, tiny penis.

I want to get one, but I'm mentally ill. I live in Nebraska though. I should try, and document them approving a mentally ill person for a gun. FFS, if you think everyone in Texas has a gun.... welcome to Nebraska. Ughhhhh.

 

I have no good things to think of about the NRA. I don't care how fucking white I am and whatever privilege I have, all I can think of is how the NRA made nary a peep about Philando Castile. I'm absolutely broken up about it. The whole thing. Everything. Many of you felt ill and nauseated after the election, and I disregarded it as I assumed I was mad enough of sterner stuff. Nope. The Officer gets off scot free, and here I am, not made of sterner stuff, dry heaving and weepy.

I really can't let this go, guys. 

His friend John Thompson: 

Quote

You know what I said to Phil? I said, 'Phil, man, get out of here man. Those kids man, man they give us hell. So get out of here with that 'I love the kids' mess.' And he said, 'JT, man, I love everybody.' And I went on with my day and we celebrated. I didn't think those would be the last words that I would ever hear Philando say to me was, 'I love everybody.' He said, 'I love everybody,' and he meant it. He meant it. He loved everybody. Everybody. So to take my friend from me like that, he loved everybody. You know, he used to go into his pocket — and if kids couldn't afford lunch, he would pay for their lunch out of his own pocket.

And yet the NRA doesn't give a shit. Fuck the NRA. Those racist pigs.

grrrrrr.

Yeah lots of people who are on the left side of the equation looked at buying weapons or had done so after orange fuck face won;

Here's an article the BBC published back in December talking about that: Why US liberals are now buying guns too

Spoiler

Lara Smith, national spokesperson for the Liberal Gun Club, says her organisation has seen a "huge" rise in enquiries since November's election and a 10% increase in paid members.

Some of the new members are reluctant first-time gun owners, says Smith, concerned that isolated acts of aggression against minorities could escalate into something more violent and that a Trump administration will dismantle key constitutional rights, leading to a "more fascist rule than the US has ever had".

@VixenToast, I, too, could be seen as mentally ill so I understand the argument from the right about classifying people to deny rights. On the other hand, I think about 75% of the members of the NRA could do with a few sessions with a good psychiatrist. A slippery slope there.

I just worry that as we move further and further away from a government with real checks and balances, it won't be enough to disenfranchise the "obvious" opposition to the right, they'll start digging deeper-medical records, party affiliation(a-hem), charitable donations-to weed out their enemies and deny representation and protection. We're not there yet but the train is headed in that direction. So I sadly feel I may need to exercise that right before they make it exclusive.

Oh, and you're made of sterner stuff than you think.

Guns And KKK Members At Gettysburg Confederate Rally, But No Foes To Fight

The anti-fascists never came, but pro-Confederate protesters at the Civil War battlefield were still angry, and heavily armed.

By Christopher Mathias, Andy Campbell

Quote

 

GETTYSBURG, Pa. ― A few hundred armed militia group members, Sons of Confederate Veterans, Ku Klux Klaners, supporters of President Donald Trump, and other self-described patriots descended upon the Gettysburg battlefield Saturday to defend the site’s Confederate symbols from phantom activists with the violent far-left group Antifa.

Some carried semi-automatic rifles ― permitted in Pennsylvania ― as they peered out across the battlefield with binoculars, on the lookout for the black-clad, face-masked anti-fascists, anarchists and socialists they said they had heard were traveling to the national park to dishonor Confederate graves, monuments and flags.

Although many came expecting violence ― even after Antifa made it clear its adherents never planned to show up ― the only bloodshed came when a lone militia group member accidentally shot himself in the leg.

 

TL;DR: the confederacy wasn't about racism and they're KKK members for the legacy, there is no conflict between pledging allegiance and saluting the confederacy flag, and it's the most patriotic thing ever to shoot yourself in the leg with the confederacy flag.

And isn't this just playing into the hands of the NRA? Hands they are gleefully rubbing together...

I really, really don't get this obsession with guns. How does getting a gun too make you safer? I would think disarming the other person (by making sure they can't get their fingers on any arms at all) would be your best bet for safety.

Good point.  Maybe it does play in to the grand master plan of the NRA bringing about Civil War II so that the manufacturers can sell to all sides.  Personally, I'm not too much about buying firearms.  There are other and better things I'd rather blow money on than firearms.  I'd rather build up unarmed self defense techniques.  But I'm not judging anyone on our side who feels it necessary to buy a weapon for defense.  If people honestly need a weapon to protect themselves from Branch Trumpvidians then it's fine with me.

I'm saddened to see how this expression exemplifies the state America is in right now. "Their side" and "our side", the "us against them", truly shows the great division in American society at the moment.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not judging the use of the expression at all. It's just so sad that this is how things feel like for you guys.

What a contrast to the feelings of inclusiveness when Obama was elected president. :sigh:

One of the reasons I follow the Trump saga so obsessively is that I am no longer thinking that a new American civil war is an impossibility. Maybe not likely...but some of the ingredients are there. People are deeply divided on what the facts are and what the right thing to do is in any given situation, a lot of people are no longer horrified  about stuff that would have been considered a breach of common decency  and think that sort of thing is winning and mock people who continue to be horrified, and the president of the United States loves to incite conflict. 

And every nutcase owns an arsenal.

Dan Carlin recently discussed this sense of civil war in the modern context in his most recent Common Sense podcast. A really interesting podcast if you have a chance to listen.

Sadly, yes, but if push comes to shove, I'm not going down without a fight. And it's getting ugly over here.

I live in a nice small neighborhood of civilized people, most of whom don't share my beliefs politically. Yet everyone here had managed to get along nicely by behaving as decent neighbors do. But about two months ago a man moved in and now uses the neighborhood Facebook page to hurl insults at the left every opportunity he gets. He inserts these into discussions that have nothing to do with politics, without provocation, and there are others who encourage his rants. This man lives down the street from me and I'm pretty sure he came down here and ran to the gun store as fast as he could.

Don't get me wrong, I hate it too, I have never fired a gun and hope I never have to. I have no intention of toting one around because I, unlike many in this country, don't see myself as Rambo. But if this man decides to confront me on my lawn one day because I express my opinion about a neighborhood issues he doesn't agree with, then refuses to go about his business, well, I can't afford to move and land mines aren't an option. You may think I'm exaggerating but his rhetoric is shocking and he knows he is speaking directly to people in his neighborhood.

I'm not there yet but I agree with @AmazonGrace, I'm not convinced that a civil war isn't on the horizon. I hope someone intervenes. But we have a president who encourages violence, bullying, and unchecked arrogance. And these people they are heavily armed.

There are plenty of examples throughout history of what happens to unarmed people once fascists and reactionaries start gaining power.

That inclusiveness never existed in the places I lived during his administration. President Obama was hated and despised by the majority of residents. :pb_sad:

That's what the NRA ran on during the Obama era. :snooty: THEYRE TRYING TO TAKE OUR GUNS!!!! and SANDY HOOK IS A HOAX AND THEYRE TRYING TO TAKE OUR GUNS. That dumb shit. They try to argue democrats are socialists and Hitler was a socialist because Nazi is shortened from the German name National Socialist (maybe another word) Party. Let's see if I remember off the top of my head... Nazionalsocialistarbeitpartei ?

now I'll look it up... lol. This is partly to see how well my memory is working....

Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei 

Not bad.  Ok. Anyway, they stupidly see Socialist and think of the left. Ughhhh.

I do kinda want a gun now. Those Right Wingnuts are fucking loaded. LOADED I TELL YOU. I'm in Nebraska and my uncle has a giant walk in safe he stores them in. I shit you not.

They're now trying to push the left into fear since the right is now happily secure that the "evil libruls" can't take their guns. The black boogeyman is gone and people aren't stockpiling like they used to. Got to make money somehow!
