NRA, LaPierre Lay Down Suppressive Fire for Profiteers of Gun-Violence
Wayne LaPierre, Executive Vice President of the National Rifle Association, excreted a characteristically repulsive screed February 13, titled Stand and Fight.
Seemingly a reflex to President Obama's decidedly tame State of the Union speech in which he begged on Congress for a vote on widely accepted common sense Gun Safety legislation - LaPierre once again asserted himself as one of the most wretched and vile excuses for a human being in the entire country. As is his wont, Mr. LaPierre's delirious and disgusting survivalist call-to-arms ranged from mildly offensive to overtly racist.
The combative and truculent LaPierre conjures a post-apocalyptic U.S. of A. in which there, "(W)on’t be enough money to pay for police protection. And the American people know it."
And whom would LaPierre blame for the complete collapse of civil society? Why, brown people, of course. LaPierre points his blood-soaked fingers directly at Mexicans, Muslims, and Blacks. From Latin American gangs on the Mexican border, to al-Qaeda terrorists and "South Brooklyn" looters - LaPierre is careful to associate the presence of melanin with all that ails society.
"(T)ens of millions of Americans are already preparing to Stand And Fight to protect their families and homes", predicting that, "though the states on the U.S./Mexico border may be the first places in the nation to suffer...by no means are they the last."
"When the next terrorist attack comes", LaPierre reassures his survivalist flock, it "will be the pretext to unleash a tsunami of gun control."
"Hurricanes. Tornadoes. Riots. Terrorists. Gangs. Lone criminals." In case anyone was still wondering? Yes, Wayne's World is utterly devoid of reason and rational - rendering his judgement upon all comparatively darker persons than he - and of course, the weather.
With impish aplomb, Wayne LaPierre firmly positions himself as America's most contemptible and disreputable individual, but we must understand that he is but a cartoon. He is a caricature. He is Cruella Deville incarnate.
And he plays his part extremely well. While proponents of common sense Gun Safety are perpetually outraged by the periodical schizophrenic rants of a bombastic LaPierre - the real villains go largely unnoticed.
While the NRA counts over 4 million members, the only constituents that matter to Wayne LaPierre and David Keene, are the manufacturers of these tools of violence who make billions in profit while our children bleed and die in the streets of a country with shamefully insufficient Gun Safety laws.
Here's a few folks who make piles of money from our suffering -
- Les Baer - Les Baer
- Ron Cohen - SIG Sauer
- Mark Malkowski - Stag Arms
- Bill Wilson - Wilson Combat
- Tom Irwin/Dave Walls - Accuracy International
- Mark Serbu - Serbu
- Ugo Gussalli Beretta - Beretta
- Josh Dorsey - Glock
- Mark Westrom - Armalite
The best way for proponents of common sense Gun Safety, to apply pressure to these blood-drenched profiteers, is to hit them where it hurts - in their pocket-books. Our pensions are among the best tools we have, we must divest from any and all murder-inducing stocks. Our state and local police and sheriff departments must shun any and all firearms manufacturers whom oppose common sense Gun Safety legislation. They don't deserve our hard-earned pensions or tax dollars.
Gun Safety now!
