The NRA sure does love it some culture-war rhetoric these days, since with the threat of Barack Obama coming to take your guns away has diminished some (he still could do it, though), they need to find other avenues of outrage to keep people afraid and buying more guns. A few weeks back, they had that charming thing with Dana Loesch urging everyone to be afraid of all the violent liberals who have sapped and impurified our precious bodily fluids, which stopped just short of calling on viewers to go shoot some protesters or reporters or teachers. And now, in what may be their most oddly focused attack ad yet, the NRA has declared war on the Washington Post, because that newspaper is one huge threat to America and freedom, and if you see a Washington Post coming at you late at night, you should be ready to shoot it.

It’s not just that WaPo is full of liberal lies, which of course it is, but WaPo also angered the NRA with a mean media analysis piece about the NRA’s new trend of releasing rightwing political ads that are barely about guns at all. That article looked at a follow-up ad to the Loesch one, in which NRA commenter Dom Raso laid into Democrats, the media, and political protesters for destabilizing the USA with all their leftism and “organized anarchy,” which is a lovely oxymoron. In the video, which suggests that Elizabeth Warren, Chuck Schumer, and John Lewis are encouraging antifa protesters to burn cities every other day or so, Raso says “I’m disgusted that we as Americans are accepting to live with these conditions, not because of ISIS, but because of a bunch of entitled crybabies who can’t get over the fact that the American people elected Donald Trump.” WaPo pointed out that the ad wasn’t especially about guns, but about stuff that scares rightwingers:

This is the second recent NRA video that has centered on political discussions on public safety among civil arrest, with less clear connections to Second Amendment rights.

Worse, the Post also ran an article about the American right’s increasing admiration for Russia. It discussed a friendly meeting between NRA leaders and Russian government officials, as well as connections between former NRA president David Keene and a Russian senator.

Well by golly, the NRA isn’t going to stand for such fake news anymore, although the ad released Monday is remarkably unspecific about where the two WaPo pieces it singles out were not factual.

In fact, one of the claims in the video, featuring NRA talk show host Grant Stinchfield, is just plain wrong — Stinchfield says the “fake news outlet even went so far as to make made the blatantly false claim that the NRA had illegal ties to Russia.” Except there’s not a single claim in the article that NRA members’ interactions with Russia were illegal. The article does suggest, however, that warm invitations to the NRA to join with a Russian pro-gun group are probably sponsored by the government, not the work of private citizens who’d just love to have open carry in Russia, an idea that might not sit well with Vladimir Putin.

Also, Stinchfield is really angry that the Post would dare dictate to the NRA what its videos should be about, because what about freedom, huh? Why does the Washington Post hate freedom, and truth so much? He knows why: Because guns are freedom, and “For years, The Washington Post has tarnished gun owners in an effort to take away our Second Amendment freedoms.” Therefore, it only stands to reason that in critiquing the NRA’s weird shift from guns to more general far-right worries,

The Washington Post isn’t mad about the lack of guns, it’s upset about the abundance of truth: the truth about their role in the organized anarchy of the violent left by spreading lies about those who disagree with their radical agenda, while refusing to cover the extremist beliefs and tactics of people like Carmen Perez, Deray McKesson, and liberal politicians like Al Franken and Chuck Schumer, who refuse to condemn them.

That’s quite a logic bomb there! The Post never reports on Carmen Perez (who, honestly, we had to google to learn was one of the organizers of the Women’s March, and therefore a genuine George Soros-funded extremist) and Deray McKesson (Black Lives Matter, ergo an extremist and possible ISIS member). Actually, The Post has covered both, although not with the flop-sweat tone of panic you’d find at Breitbart or Gateway Pundit, which of course proves how biased WaPo is. Also, that’s quite an enemies list: A Latina, a black, and two Jews? Hmmm. Pure coincidence, we bet.

Anyway, Stinchfield wants viewers to know the NRA will not let the Washington Post dictate the content of its videos, and it stands ready to fight against any number of psychotic straw men, too:

Listen to me, Washington Post. In fact, I’m telling every leftist media propaganda machine defending the violent left to hear what I’m about to say:

We talk about more than guns because every freedom is connected. If one is threatened, they all are threatened. And the organized anarchy that you and your politicians and your activists are pushing is destroying our country […] It’s why we will never stop fighting the violent left on the battlefield of truth. So here’s a suggestion for The Washington Post: Don’t worry about how many guns are in our videos, worry about how many facts are in your articles.

Please review the video at this time and count the number of factual inaccuracies Stinchfield has identified. His one specific claim, that the Post accused the NRA of being illegally in bed with Russians, does not actually appear in the article he complains about. Stinchfield closes with a terrific comparison, suggesting that maybe the real target of restrictions should be the First Amendment, not the Second:

If gun owners abused our Second Amendment the way you abuse your paper and the First Amendment, our rights would have been taken away long ago. You people do more to damage our country with a keyboard than every NRA member combined has ever done with a firearm. Your paper’s new slogan may read “Democracy dies in darkness,” but it should say “journalism dies at the Washington Post.”

So that was a pretty good, if fact-free, rant, and now we know gun-humpers will be copy-pasting that final line into comments for the next few months, hooray.

      They are trying to paint a picture of the liberal media as a kind of McCarthyism, in which anyone who steps out of line gets shut down, thrown out of the public discourse, branded a racist, homophobic, politically incorrect enemy of the state. That the liberal media destroys lives and buries truth. And, therefore, destroys our country.

      Meanwhile, the NRA just protects peoples’ rights under the Constitution as written by Our Founders.

    • Hard to say, since they immediately disclaim any responsibility for gun owners who shoot people.

  • TundraGrifter

    Wow. The NRA denies an accusation that wasn’t made. Guilty much?

    Meanwhile, when it makes money the Washington Post pays corporate income taxes. Does the NRA? Which organization is more patriotic?

    • Ricky Gay

  • Dr. Rrrrrobotnik

    What worries me is that, with Republican control of all three branches of government, the average right-winger probably isn’t feeling too concerned about their gun rights. So the NRA has to get its rhetoric to ridiculous levels to gin up Obama-era level paranoia and resultant gun sales the gun industry has come to rely on.

    I was going to say “one day they’ll go too far and some loon will shoot up someone important” but that’s not only already happened, but they’ll find a way to blame us for it. Guaranteed.

  • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

    “If gun owners abused our Second Amendment the way you abuse your paper and the First Amendment, our rights would have been taken away long ago.”

    “You people do more to damage our country with a keyboard than every NRA member combined has ever done with a firearm.”

            good edit, cause it includes those idiotic gun show loopholes.

          • CafeenMan

            Not to mention private sales. They keep telling us that there is no legal requirement for background checks on certain types of sales in certain states.

            Yet they call themselves “responsible” even though they can “legally” sell a gun to someone they know nothing about.

            Legal or not, if you’re selling a gun to someone you don’t know for a fact is allowed to possess it then that’s the very definition of epic irresponsibility.

      • Celtic_Gnome

        My latest take is Trump will do nothing. He’s a coward. He makes big threats, but, if you call his bluff, he backs down. Sure, he fired Comey, but all the stuff about demanding loyalty didn’t come out until after the firing. If he told an interviewer he was going to demand Comey’s loyalty and fire him if he didn’t get it, Comey would still be FBI Director.

With very few exceptions, the Republican Party seems unable or unwilling to keep this from happening.

    It’s a cannibal feast of democratic government, and everyone’s fighting over portions.

    The Post does more damage to America than all the NRA members combined ever?

    Let’s see. A bit more than 30K firearm deaths a year in the country. Filter out about 20K of them that are suicides, negligent discharges, undetermined reasons, or similar and that leave 10K gun murders a year.

    10K a year for one year is more damage than the Post has done, let alone the number of years this shit has gone on.

    Fuck the NRA.

      In a conference call to discuss earnings, Camping World Chairman and CEO Marcus Lemonis highlighted what he called a barrage of management mistakes from Gander Mountain that he referred to as “stupid.”…

      Betting big on weapons for the St. Paul, Minn.-based Gander Mountain, which billed itself as “America’s Firearm Superstore,” wounded the business beyond resurrection, Lemonis said.

      Lemonis noted that the gun market isn’t stable and as soon as the President Barack Obama administration was succeeded by the current administration,gun sales plummeted.

      Gander Mountain filed for bankruptcy in March with assets and liabilities each listed as worth up to $1 billion.

    Op-Ed What happened when a 64-year-old liberal attended his first NRA convention
    by William Alexander

    Some men, when they retire, take up fishing, others golf. Not I. Perhaps decades of watching deer romp through my garden subliminally planted the notion. Or binge-watching “The Rifleman” reruns on Saturday mornings. Whatever the reason, I surprised my 64-year-old liberal self recently when I realized I wanted to try a new pastime: shooting.

    I learned something quickly: There are not many left-of-center gun owners. The connection between guns, God and conservatism remains a bit of a mystery to me, and — as I found at my first NRA convention — balancing on only one leg of that triad can be stressful.

    What better place to shop for your first rifle than among the 15 acres of guns and materiel that recently occupied a corner of downtown Atlanta for three days? I know the NRA’s reputation, but I went to the convention with an open mind, prepared to have my stereotypical notions challenged, and hoping to connect with gun owners who feel, as I do, that it’s high time the organization returned to its roots as a group promoting gun safety, training and responsible ownership. I’d heard, encouragingly, that 90% of NRA members support universal background checks.

    Indeed, the attendees were a more diverse group than I’d expected, with the notable exception of race. Amid the three Bs — beards, baseball caps and bellies — there were cute elderly couples walking the exhibit floor hand in hand; mother/daughter pairs; even entire families. I met a teacher from Indiana pulling her young son in a small wagon through the cavernous exhibit hall.

    I learned that the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre was the fault of the school itself and the ‘lyin’ dirtbag media.’
    As we chatted, I asked how she related, as both a teacher and a mother of a young boy, to the recent San Bernardino school shooting, where a teacher and an 8-year boy were shot to death.

    “I understand, in schools, when your child is killed by someone who shoots, I understand that can be heartbreaking. But we are legal gun owners, we’re the ones who make the right choices.”

    As for protecting the innocent from those who don’t? “I think somebody in the school should’ve been armed and able to protect themselves,” she said.

    Another conventioneer scoffed at background checks. Even to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill? “Who’s to say who’s mentally ill?” This was a tough crowd.

    Looks can be deceiving. No matter their age, gender or social class, every person I spoke with regurgitated the same NRA talking points: self-defense, guns-don’t-kill/people-kill, and 2nd Amendment rights. Three of the sweetest little old ladies from Georgia you’d ever want to meet explained that, as widows, they often drive alone on country roads. “What if my car breaks down?” one asked rhetorically? “I need to be able to defend myself.”

    “Is being attacked in your car a common event in rural Georgia?” I asked.

    “Well, not as much as where you’re from, I’m sure,” she said, not actually knowing where I was from, but pegging me for a city slicker. The women didn’t believe me when I told them that, to my knowledge, such a crime was virtually unknown where I lived.

    One common thread among the conventioneers I met was fear. Real, genuine fear. But that’s no accident. Protecting yourself from crime, real and imagined, is what the NRA is all about. The NRA’s America, unrecognizable to the vast majority of Americans except from television, is a very dangerous place. Lawlessness, crime and violence reign. Rioters rule the streets. Islamic terrorists are coming to your town. Unarmed women are rape bait. Unarmed men are cowards. It is twilight in America and no one is going to defend you. Except you.

    At seminars I was told not to expose my home address on luggage tags, to set up a safe room in my house, to make sure my holstered weapon is so comfortable that that I never leave home without it, even to go out for milk, and to cover all accessible windows with bulletproof film. I learned that the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre was the fault of the school itself and the “lyin’ dirtbag media.”

    Needing some air, I walked a few blocks downtown to observe a small rally held by Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense. Flanked by mothers holding photographs of their children killed by guns, Stephanie Stone, an African American woman from Atlanta, spoke movingly of the death five years ago of her 14-year-old son, shot three times in the head during a home intrusion robbery. Wait a second — I had just seen a scary NRA video based on this very scenario! Except, of course, in the NRA version the lesson is that fewer gun restrictions, not more, would have prevented this horror. Afterwards, I expressed my condolences and asked Stone how she felt about the NRA essentially appropriating her tragic story for their own, opposite purposes.

    I expected — I wanted — her to express the outrage that I felt, but I received no such satisfaction. She noted that several of the moms were gun owners themselves, and explained, “We’re just for some common-sense things” such as waiting periods, universal background checks, an end to pawnshop sales. “We have to keep guns out of the hands of the wrong people.”

    Thinking about our conversation in full — gun thefts in her neighborhood, the 18-year-old neighbor who recently bought an AK-47 — I understood one reason for her surprisingly tempered response: The moms holding photographs of their slain children were likely the only people I’d met all weekend who actually did live anywhere that even remotely resembled the NRA’s dangerous America, and could legitimately view a gun in the home as a necessary protection.

    The great, tragic irony is that the NRA, in supposedly “solving” a crisis that overwhelmingly doesn’t exist for its members, is in fact contributing to the very real crises of inner-city gun violence that mothers like Stephanie Stone face every day.

    I returned home with a new question: Can one be a responsible, guiltless gun owner who keeps up his skills at the range, or does the mere act of joining the gun culture and economy, of bringing another weapon or two off the assembly line, make me complicit?

    Perhaps golf’s a better hobby, after all.

    • Komsumverweigerer Ron

      I dunno, you can do a LOT of damage with a well-swung 5-iron.

      • Ghenghis McCann

        I remember seeing a letter in a newspaper some years ago, where the writer asked; “Why were that woman’s nail-clippers taken from her, when my golf bag with all those clubs in it was hand luggage, so no problem there?

      • Celtic_Gnome

        At the same time, the golf course seems to be the only place where Donald Trump doesn’t fuck up America.

        • Komsumverweigerer Ron

    • Ωbjectifier

      “There are not many left-of-center gun owners.”
      There are, but you won’t find them at Crossroads of the West. I’m a semi-commie dirt worshipping tree hugger and I grew up with guns and still own several. I was taught to shoot by my dad and the federal government, I’m a pretty fair shot. I’m also a life member of the NRA, but only because they won’t let me leave. Sent my membership card back years ago but I know they keep me and others like me on the rolls to pump up the membership numbers.
      There’s more of us than you know.

    • weighmaster

      There are many left of center gun owners, perhaps just not so much in Georgia. Also those I know are not NRA members.

      • SisterArtemis

        I’d say roughly half of the lefties I know either are currently owners of firearms, or are comfortable with them. Sometimes it’s that they hunt, or shoot for sport. For some, it’s self defense (a lot of die-hard feminists schooled in self defense techniques conceal-carry). For a few on the far left, it’s defense against a potentially-threatening state. For a few who lived through the sixties as brown-skinned people, it defense against an actually-threatening state.

        I also think a lot of conservative gun owners are not on the same page at all as the NRA, and either aren’t members, or are grudging members who “don’t belong cuz of the political stuff,” but rather for other resources.

        It doesn’t seem that the “does/does not own a gun” fall cleanly along partisan lines at all, and I’d love to see that brought out more.

        • Celtic_Gnome

          Just occurred to me. We should have an interesting deleted comments column in the ear future. Gun stories always bring out the best in the trolls.

      • Celtic_Gnome

        I was a member of the NRA for a while. Got a membership on a specal discount. Then, they sent me a Rob Portman bumper sticker when he first ran for the Senate, and I decided I didn’t want my dues going for things like that.

    • FlownΩver

      I’ not sure about the actual level of fear abroad among the gun-humpers. There are a buttload of actual cowards among them, but for many the claims of fear are just supporting excuses for their claimed right to shoot people.

      So down, and guns are getting cheaper too. Now is a good time to buy. I know two gun dealers and sales have plummeted since November.

      • Boscoe

        Don’t worry, they’ll go right back up as soon as another Dem is elected president and exciting new rumors come out about how secret legislation is planned to make gun owners engrave their fingerprints on every bullet and have a national gun registry ID# tattooed on their arms like a common Holocaust Center resident…

      I’d consider it, if they don’t fall into the path the NRA is going. I looked at the Pink Pistols a while back but it turns out a lot of them are hardcore 2A and NRA is always right.

      • Sidley Park Hermit

        I’ve noticed that Pink Pistols seems to draw a disproportionate number of, like, aggro straight men who want to imagine themselves the savior of the gays.

  • WhiskeyTangoFoxtrot

    “Journalism dies at the Washington Post.” Nice metaphor, NRA. At least metaphors don’t kill. On the other hand, many, many people just die when they are shot. No metaphor, just tragedy.

    • DoILookAmused2u? Résistance☨

      I have actually been impressed with WP bringing back good, old-fashioned, gum-shoe investigative journalism.

      That costs some money.

    So, the NRA is very upset about its perception that the Washington Post is trying to dictate what the NRA should talk about, so the NRA wants to . . . dictate what the Post should talk about.

    I suppose if you’re a mindless boob of the NRA, that makes a ton of sense.

  • whitroth

    First, let’s get one thing out of the way: no, “organized anarchy” is not an oxymoron… just their use of it is. Wonketteers, if you belong to any club… that club is an anarchy, which, if you read dictionaries or wikipedia, is “voluntary organization”, meaning you don’t like it, you can quit and walk away.

    ObDisclosure: A couple of years in my life, I was a paid-up member of an anarchist-syndicalist union….

    Now about the rest…obviously, we need to take their guns away, because they’ve been abusing their Second Amendment rights for decades.

    I’m just waiting for the NRA to say or do something that gives me standing to sue them, because if I do, it’ll be for a billion fucking dollars, and I will take them *down* in to bankruptcy.

  • Hardly Ideal

    Stenchfield needs to shut the fuck up. It wasn’t a keyboard that stole my aunt’s freedom to grow old and watch my son grow; it was her husband and one of his fucking cowboy guns.

  • Notreelyhelping

    Usually, I see NRA in a story and skip it because…you know–it’s pointless. You could almost ad lib the text verbatim. But it’s sort of giving me the willies lately because it’s sounding like Hutu radio propaganda against Tutsis. Not cause it’s going to start a war, but because it could very well get people killed.

    I find this hard to joke about, but I’m sure there’s a way. Like picking up a severed hand and noting the Timex is still running.

    • Fusilier 0770

      How do you inspire loyalty? You foment hate and fear in the “other.” Quite frankly, hostile foreign powers are watching American politics and smiling with glee as the U.S. citizenry eats itself. Makes it so much easier to exploit the vast resources this country possess, and our billionaire/millionaire will help facilitate the transfer while Cletus McDipshit in Mooseknuckle, Idaho joins the Crusades (not to the Holy Land as Israel has dibs on that-natch!) to smite the liberal enclaves of the coastal elites to restore God, guns, and feudalism because his preacher, the pretty ladies on Fox News, and/or some unhinged charlatan on the internet told him to. We are on the cusp of entering very dark ages again where Hobbes predicted that life would become very solitary, brutish, and short.

  • Ms.Moon

    I spent many of my formative years up in a country where regular people weren’t allowed to have guns. My dad because of his job had a gun but it got locked up and left at work. I’m as a result not fond of guns. I don’t like them, I don’t own one and I really have no need for one (I don’t live where I’m in danger of bears busting into my home which I learned is a very real thing). I have no issue with other people owning guns, a friend of the family’s grandpa worked for the government in some capacity (I refuse to ask) and has alot of guns. He sometimes lives in bear country and he’s a hunter as well, he likes his guns, I have no issue with him having guns he’s a very responsible person and he raised all his kids and nobody died because of his guns. I do not think ill of people who are responsible about their gun ownership. Sometimes you need to have guns in the home (bears break into houses etc.). I don’t want a gun so I don’t own one but I have no problem with other people owning them as long as they are responsible gun owners.

    • Lily412

      The thing is, very few people are suggesting we should ban all guns. That’s just the propaganda from the NRA to get people riled up against any kind of safety restrictions like waiting periods, background checks, etc.

      • Keith Taylor

        Uh huh. Someone suggests that maybe a man with paranoid schizophrenia who violently abused his wife before she left him, and terrorized his kids, and slashed a woman with a broken drink glass in a bar because she reminded him of his wife, and hates blacks, and hates the government and says we should assassinate them all, ought to be barred from owning assault rifles if not handguns too, and they are like …
        ‘SO YOU WANT TO BAN ALL FIREARMS AND EVEN CAP PISTOLS AND LET THE TERRORISTS MURDER ANYONE THEY WANT TO, AND DESTROY THE CONSTITUTION AND OUR NATION!”
        They blat it out all in capitals, too, which is the only reason I put it in caps.

    The NRA is a money-scamming nihilist hate-group, selling paranoia and violence to fucking idiots. That is ALL they are, and it’s disgraceful. No wonder they’re fond of Putin, and no wonder Putin’s fond of them- he wants to see the United States collapsed and destroyed like his beloved Soviet Union was. He likes seeing tens of thousands of Americans killed by guns every year. The NRA likes it too. It’s fucking sick.

  • Jo Mathie

    It’s so weird. The NRA has the same fear of people that I do of spiders – I mean it probably won’t kill me (it totally won’t as none of our spiders are venomous), but what if it does? Only I very gingerly approach an arachnid with a cup and a bit of cardboard and chuck it into the garden, where as some gun nuts seem to think it’s fine if someone makes you a bit nervous it’s ok to kill them.

    • Keith Taylor

      None of your spiders are venomous? I don’t definitely know if that’s right, but if it is, do we envy you here in Australia! I’d come to live in the U.S.A. (once Trump is gone) but I might get shot even then. No, actually, cancel that, more and more people are getting shot in our streets and in their own homes here, too. Used to be that was not the case. It was nice but now it’s gone.
