At CPAC, NRA Prez Lets It Rip and Warns of Socialists in Our Midst

National Rifle Association CEO Wayne LaPierre on Thursday warned conservatives that socialists are smearing gun rights advocates and seeking to eliminate their rights.

“Socialism is a movement that loves a smear. Racists, misogynists, sexists, xenophobe and more. These are the weapons and vitriol these character assassinations permanently hang on their targets because socialism feeds off manipulated victims,” LaPierre told the Conservative Political Action Conference.

LaPierre claimed "European socialists” are taking over the Democratic Party. He also named the “Occupy” movement, Black Lives Matter and antifa as examples of social groups that he claimed promote “uncivil discourse” and aim to "eliminate due process."

“They don’t care about our schoolchildren,” LaPierre said, “They want to make all of us less free.”

Good for LaPierre. More should speak up like him.



  1. This morning, the host of CNN's New Day With Chris Cuomo and Alysin Camerota, Alysin Camerota, asked Dana Loesch, why did she say during her speech at CPAC that "Many in the Media love mass shootings". I responded to the TV "because it's true", and immediately after Ms. Loesch responded "because it's true."

    Poor Alysin Camerota took it upon herself to defend her colleagues by a tepid "it's not true because I don't love mass shootings!". The point made by Ms. Loesch is that the activist journalists and opinion-makes jump into turbo mode when a mass shooting happens and advocate for gun bans even before the bodies are lifted, only after days of virtue-signaling would these journalists ever look a the facts of the case, for instance the fact that the shooter raised every possible red flag save for putting up a billboard that he wanted to commit multiple murders, possibly one of the greatest law enforcement failures since the Garland TX church shooting. Dana only needed to pijnt out to he many times people would blurt out that AR-15 owners had blood onntheir hands and how their statements were never corrected by the hosts of New Day, something that Camerota continuously denied (except that it was true --I've been watching CNN ever since Fox & Friends became the "Suck Trump's D!ck" squad).

  2. The left: police are killing blacks and other POC with impunity. Get rid of the police!

    Also the left: guns are killing our children, ban them. Only the police should have guns!

    1. And if it's an illegal doing the killing the media/left acts as if it had never happened at all.

  3. Only problem here is that the NRA has proven over and over again their willingness to compromise gun rights away. They were, at least at some level, perfectly fine with the Assault Weapons ban in 1994, the Brady Bill in 1993, the Gun Control Act of 1968, and the National Firearms Act in 1934.

    I could discuss their continued unwillingness to support so-called "Constitutional" carry in the states. They aren't fans of open carry either.

    I agree with what Mr. LaPierre says, but his organization has been plenty complicit in bargaining away the 2nd Amendment.

    1. Yep. As Cody Wilson has pointed out repeatedly, the NRA is much more a lobbyist for Big Firearms than it is a gun rights advocate.

    2. Come on no one wants to discuss that inconvenient truth ... move along
