I am enraged. I am fuming. I am disgusted, upset, angry, irate, weeping, frustrated, demoralized and fired up.
The National Rifle Association, those money grubbing gangsters, have put out an ad on Facebook and YouTube that is so appalling I can’t believe that it isn’t the top story on the news.
The ad calls for violent action on the part of gun owners toward an unnamed “Them.”
It is urging NRA members to use guns against “them.”
“They” are people who opposed Donald Trump.
“They” include Barack Obama.
“They” are me, and my sons, and my friends who attended the ENTIRELY PEACEFUL woman’s march. “They” are all who have used the word “resist.”
The ad is a blatant call to arms. It is fanning the flames of division in this country. It is full of lies, full of hate, full of anger.
Just listen to the voice of the woman who narrates. She couldn’t be more bitter, dismissive, hateful or vicious.
How is this legal? How is this not considered to be hate speech?
How is that our national news tonight is full of Donald Trump’s latest nasty boy tweet toward a media person (Ho fucking hum) instead of looking at THIS.
I don’t even know what to do with the fear and rage that this piece brings out in me.
I hate the NRA. I hate them. I hold them personally responsible for ALL of the young people in this country who despair and kill themselves with guns. I hold them responsible for every baby and child who is killed because a gullible parent bought into the lie that owning a gun would keep the family safe.
I hate them.
If I had to list who I fear the most, Islamic terrorists would rate way below NRA leadership. They’d fall below my anxious neighbors who decide to carry guns into Walmart.
Please watch the ad. Please share it with thoughtful people. Please contact your representatives and your local media and tell them to label this what it is: a criminal act of hate.
