Pro-gun Democrats did better in the midterms than probably any other class of politician, but the National Rifle Association is not in the business of reflecting moderate political reality. The NRA lives off memberships, and the standard card-carrying member has two enemies: Democrats and … deer, most likely.
But even loyalists go soft, as the GOP learned last month, and you need some Grade A propaganda to get people riled up again. Let no one accuse the NRA of shirking its duty. Freedom In Peril: Guarding the 2nd Amendment in the 21st Century is a spectacularly beautiful graphic novel. Here, for example, is one of the biggest threats to the white suburban hunter: dirty hippies and their evil sidekicks: the dynamite-carrying owl, sinister pig, angry Wall Street bull, dire wolf, terror chicken and Land Lobster:
secret very public cabal is behind the plans to stop testing Cialis on kittens, take away the Bill of Rights, make the UN actually have influence in the world, and turn over our children to illegal-alien Negro gangs. The leader of this cabal, obviously, is an incredibly scary wart-encrusted Jew who has all the Money:
Yes, this is George Soros. He admits that he made his Jew Billions using the American capitalist system, but now he’s using some of that money to support political candidates! Typical Jew!
But even an all-powerful Jew with all the money needs an inner circle of lesbians, teevee personalities and other obese entertainers (and two Negroes) to strip the freedoms from freedom-loving Americans:
The R. Crumb-esque hippie girl is great, and the celebrity caricatures are hilarious, but the anonymous (and outrageously talented) artists behind this work of breathtaking paranoia really shine when they get to the Scenes of Disaster:
Say, speaking of minorities, shouldn’t we especially be worried about the Illegal Alien Gangs who also work with Soros and Katie Couric to take away our precious 2nd Amendment freedoms? Yes, yes we should:
But what will these Illegal Aliens do to our white policemen? You can bet it involves a dirty gang bandanna pulled right off their dirty jerry-curled heads:
But what’s the real danger? Fear-mongering, that’s what! Because The Media’s trying to scare you! Shame on them!
The booklet’s “Epilogue” — “The Hour Is At Hand” — is thoroughly perplexing. Why is the American Family so calm about the approaching tsunami? Shouldn’t they at least head for the second floor? Maybe they can shoot the tsunami?
