The strategy for Oliver North, new president of the NRA, is apparently to play the victim.

Seriously?

Courtesy of Mother Jones:

On Wednesday, the Washington Times published an exclusive interview with the incoming president of the National Rifle Association, Oliver North, in which he claimed that the NRA’s leaders are the victims of “civil terrorism” at the hands of gun safety advocates. He referenced unspecified “threats” and noted that vandals splashed fake blood on an NRA official’s Virginia home. He likened this treatment to that of black Americans during the era of legally sanctioned racial segregation.

“They call them activists. That’s what they’re calling themselves. They’re not activists—this is civil terrorism. This is the kind of thing that’s never been seen against a civil rights organization in America,” he said. “You go back to the terrible days of Jim Crow and those kinds of things—even there you didn’t have this kind of thing.”

Did Oliver “Iran Contra” North actually compare gun toting morons to the brave folks who marched for civil rights in this country?

That is seriously fucked up.

But wait, there’s more:

In his interview with the Washington Times, North went on to accuse the teenage survivors of the Parkland shooting of “intimidation and harassment and lawbreaking.” He said, “What they did very successfully with a frontal assault…is they confused the American people.” In response, he said, his role as the NRA president is to “counter-punch” the blowback facing the organization. He said he hopes to add 1 million new members to the NRA, “as fast as we can.”

Is he really going to “counterpunch” the teenager survivors of a mass shooting? 

Gee, how muy macho of him. 

Look we understand that the gun humpers are a delicate and fragile bunch. 

That is why they walk around like this. 

But people who are carrying this kind of weaponry around in broad daylight cannot convincingly portray themselves as victims, of ANY kind. 

However children like this, who sat in abject terror on the floor of their school while their classmates were being slaughtered, well THEY certainly can.

And if that terrifies members of the NRA, and makes them feel inconvenienced in any way, good!

Because that is the goddamn point!

Personally, I hope that Oliver North does try to take these young activists on. Because from what I have seen he DOES NOT stand a chance.

    The real terrorist group is the NRA and they are holding America hostage with russian money.

    He must be really scared if he has to slander and bully a bunch of teenagers that were victims of mass murder, the NRA is going to lose that fight.

    America has had enough of the fear mongering NRA,a russian frontgroup of terrorism.

    Let’s hope that Khamenei’s photo is not prophetic, and that he will not actually create new “Fire and Fury” between Iran and its enemies. “

    “Another positive sign for the Russian economy is the rise in oil prices, which rose to their highest level since 2014 after the US withdrawal from the Iran deal.

    Analysts at Russia’s ALFA BANK said the current tensions should maintain oil prices at a high level, which they called a “great relief for the Russian market.””

      “Russia has publicly denounced Trump’s decision to pull out of the JCPOA and has proven itself to be an ally of Iran, both in Syria and on the U.N. Security Council. But, Alvi cautions, there’s little clarity on what Putin’s calculus is behind the scenes.

      “He’s probably weighing the pros and cons of Russian, wholehearted support for Iran, and, by default, the Assad regime,””

    “white male millennials are more more likely to support the Republican Party”

    “This victim mentality that many white men have developed today stems in part from what sociologist Michael Kimmel has called “aggrieved entitlement,” which he describes as “that sense of entitlement that can no longer be assumed and that is unlikely to be fulfilled.””
    “Incels are just one tiny facet of the much larger reactionary trend in America and around the world. Young men are becoming radicalized by reactionary ideologies at an alarming rate, and the success of Trump and right-wing populists in Europe suggests that we are living in an age of reaction. ”
    ““The anger of the middle-class white Americans is real,” but its aim “is misdirected not towards those who are the cause of their misery but against those who are just below them on the economic ladder.””

      “Jason Kessler — who called murdered activist Heather Heyer a “fat, disgusting Communist” — applied for a permit to have an anniversary mach last November ”
      ““I do have a backup plan, for people who have been asking, and that is going to be in front of the White House,” he said. “If Charlottesville denies our permit for any reason, it’s not safe, we’re going to get in vans and we’re going to go to Lafayette Park in front of the White House.” Peinovich said. “I hope the event, if it happens, is peaceful and that antifa thugs do no disrupt it with violence as they did the last one.”
      “On Tuesday, a KKK leader who fired a gun at the rally pleaded guilty to illegally firing a weapon, and now faces up to 10 years in prison. Last week, white supremacist Jacob Scott Goodwin was found guilty of beating a young black man in a Charlottesville parking garage, with the jury recommending 10 years in prison.”

    As soon as I see crosses burned on the lawns of NRA officials and NRA board members hanging from trees, lynched, then maybe I’ll consider Oliver North’s claims. Right now, he’s just a snowflake blowtard. It’s like he’s competing with Pepe LePee-You Pierre for biggest NRA POS.

    “The full extent of North’s complicity in cocaine trafficking will never be known.: North, is “the perfect pick to further the NRA’s reputation for favoring bloodshed and criminality over responsible gun control and ownership.””
