The NRA Just Declared War On America: Calls Violence As ‘The Only Way We Save Our Country’


The NRA Just Declared War On America: Calls Violence As ‘The Only Way We Save Our Country’

Since Donald Trump’s election, the organization of gun manufacturers and retailers known as the National Rifle Association has found it difficult to raise sufficient levels of paranoia. Gun sales are way down, and the highly profitable AR-15 style assault rifles that were snapped up when right wing media could simply point their cameras at a black man running the country, have been gathering dust.

How can the NRA restore sales? By convincing half of America to declare war on the other half.

Despite controlling virtually the entire political apparatus of the United States, conservatives find it irresistible to cling to the seemingly bottomless resentment of liberal intellectualism that eternally haunts them. That explains the National Rifle Association’s latest TV ad.

In the video, conservative talk radio star Dana Loesch declares war on … them. Where “them” is Americans.

“They use their media to assassinate real news.
They use their schools to teach children that the 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.
And then they use their ex-president to endorse the resistance.

All to make them march. Make them protest. Make them scream racism and sexism and xenophobia and homophobia. To smash windows, burn cars, shut down interstates and airports, bully and terrorize the law abiding. Until the only option left is for the police to do their jobs and stop the madness.

And when that happens, they’ll use it as an excuse for their outrage.

The only way we stop this. The only way we save our country and our freedom, is to fight this violence of lies with the clenched fist of truth.”

Watch the video below:

In less than a minute, The NRA paints an America irrevocably divided between “we” and “they.” An America where the media has fallen into their hands. Where the schools are instruments of their lies. Where every action is designed to threaten “the law abiding.” Where the only way “to save our country” is strike back with a “clenched fist.”

That brings and important question: How many of those Republican Congressmen who were calling for a reduction in rhetoric following the ballfield shooting, will step forward to condemn this video that uses that incident to call for civil war on Americans?

With more than 1 gun per person in the United States, and sales falling, the NRA clearly feels that they need to do something to bolster their “brand.” Civil war seems like just the ticket to sell a lot of guns. And even more ammo.
