What’s wrong with this, uh, thinking–if we can even call it thinking?
Blame millions of peaceful, law-abiding Americans for the acts of a few homicidal maniacs who don’t obey the law.
Threaten a voluntary organization of at least 5 million people with all sorts of dire consequences unless the violence–which they have nothing to do with–stops.
Well, it’s leftid thinking, which is not so much thought as it is a mindless taxon: they seek political power as compulsively as a tsetse fly seeks blood.
And so “a new coalition of celebrities and activists”–this is like grave-robbers joining hands with vampires–has been formed to come roaring after the National Rifle Assn. and attack anyone who “takes money from the NRA.” They’ve named it NoRA, short for “the No Rifle Initiative.” What does that mean, by the way? They won’t stop until the Second Amendment is repealed? What do they mean, “no rifle”?
Anyway, they’ve sent a letter to the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre which says, “Your time signing checks in our blood is up. We’re coming for your money. We’re coming for your puppets. And we’re going to win.” It’s signed by a lot of celebrities I’ve never heard of. Please don’t try to tell me who they are. It would diminish me to know anything about them.
So they’re gonna organize demonstrations and boycotts and “nationwide art campaigns,” whatever that is–
And may I ask: do we know of even one NRA member who has actually performed a mass shooting?
To employ the kind of logic favored by leftids, All school shootings have been done by persons who are not members of the NRA. Therefore, all persons who are not members of the NRA are potential mass murderers, and have blood on their hands from the mass shootings already committed by some of their fellow non-NRA members. Therefore persons who do not belong to the NRA must be held to account and punished for these crimes.
Leftids love identity politics, so they ought to love this.
