|US MAINSTAY ABANDONS THE NRA|
When NRA asshat Wayne LaPierre is the voice of reasoning in a convention, you know that the attendees are some pretty loony characters. Yes, unless you have been living under a rock, the Guns Over People [Formally the GOP] met in Texas for their yearly gun hugging get together fest.
Understanding this freak show for what it was, Jon Stewart last night eviscerated the National Republican Association, [Formally known as the NRA].
Stewart opened Monday night’s edition of The Daily Show by looking back at the weekend’s NRA convention and its not-so-singular focus on guns. With Ted Cruz, Rick Santorum, Sarah Palin and others in attendance, Stewart realized, “this is the same lineup, with the same laundry list of conservative grievances, that we saw at CPAC a month and a half ago.”
Depending on which American Taliban'er was speaking at the convention - the degrees of tyranny against the United States varied.
Based on Beck’s warnings against tyranny, the “government is the bad guy.” But based on LaPierre’s praise of the Boston police, “government is the good guy.” By the end of the segment, Stewart said he believes we all want the same thing: for “bad guys not to have guns.” While he and other Democrats want background checks, it appears some on the right want to “wait for a bad guy to draw and then draw faster.”
But if that’s the case, he said, “stop pretending that background checks are the last barrier standing between a free America and Obama-sponsored government mom rape.”
The full throated lunacy of the NRA has been abound since the Newtown massacre, and America’s mighty proponent of deadly weaponry here, there and everywhere, including in bars and kindergartens, announced that they are prepared to offer meaningful contributions.
Don’t get your hopes up.
The only “meaningful contributions” the NRA has ever made to public safety have been malignant ones — most notably, the millions of dollars by which the organization buys influence in the House, Senate and state capitals.
What can be learned or taken away from this convention you ask? We learned that the NRA and the Guns Over People freaks need to be "Well Regulated"!
