The NRA can get pretty far out there with their rhetoric — calling federal agents “jack-booted thugs” caused a backlash in 1995 that made them issue a rare apology — but their latest salvo is probably going to blow up in their face. At least one can hope.
It takes a lot for the NRA to shock. But this is just beyond disgusting. The NRA has launched a new ad campaign calling President Obama a ‘hypocrite’ for allowing armed Secret Service agents to protect his school aged daughters.
There are so many vile things about this ad. But one thing to note is the ad is really only designed to appeal to people who have a deep – really deep – animosity toward the President. The sort of people who don’t think he and his daughters should be in the White House and wish him the sort of ill citizens should never wish upon a freely elected head of state.
A while back I referred to the NRA as the Westboro Baptist Church of the gun owners of America. Now it’s become more like the Klan.
