NRA Finds New Rock Bottom Miles Below Their Previous Rock Bottom

There’s a lot of talk recently (the 24 hour news cycle strikes yet again!) about a particularly vile National Rifle Association video. I won’t even link to it because it was too creepy for me to watch. I found the text and just read it. After a few small changes I think I’ve found the true message.

We use Fox News to assassinate real news. We use our religious and private schools to teach children that president Obama was another Hitler. We use a few stupid movie stars and singers like Lee Greenwood and Scott Baio (we take anything we can get) to repeat our vile and failed narrative over and over again. And then we use our propaganda mills like The American Enterprise Institutes, the Heritage Foundation, and the Discovery Institute—to name but a few—to endorse the “status quo” and by”status quo” we mean the rich.

We do all of this to make conservatives angry. Make them really, really angry even though they’re the ones who run the whole fucking show, control all of our government from top to bottom. Make them scream our brand of racism and sexism and xenophobia and homophobia…but mostly we just really hate poor people. Eeewwww!

And when that happens, we use it as an excuse for outrage. The only way we stop this, the only way we save our country and our freedom from democracy, is to fight any sort of legal opposition with scare tactics and religious furor.

I’m the National Rifle Association of America, a few rich creeps who make a fortune selling guns and a bunch of ignorant hicks we’ve convinced to be on our side. Because gun control doesn’t work! Well, it works to lower the murder rate but it doesn’t work to make a few manufacturers tons of loot.
