The NRA Nutters are freaking out about how to shut down kids who are being vocal in their demands to enact gun reform, rules that most Americans agree with. The real concern is that the let’s-wait-to-talk-about-guns-thoughts-and-prayers didn’t work this time, and these kids are ballsy enough to call “Bull-Sh*t” on lawmakers. The coordinated tactic this week from the right is, "but OMG they used a bad word, where are their irresponsible parents." These are the same hypocrites who say they voted for Trump because they like him not being politically correct.
First up, Dana Loesh feigned concern by putting her hair up into a super serious bun for an NRA TV promo. “I’m a mother... I’m concerned. And the adults around you should be also... We are supposed to be the ones protecting and guiding kids, not trying to exploit the tragedy..."
If she actually cared for the Parkland teens, Dana would address her followers threatening to shoot them, altering photos of them, and spreading conspiracy theories that appeal to unstable and violent people... who own lots of guns. Nope. Dana and the Right are worried about David Hogg’s “potty mouth,” and “lack of grace.” The proponent of stand your ground laws which empower vigilante shootings actually quoted Jesus and said Hogg should “turn the other cheek,” and end his boycotts. The Right really is amazing in its total lack of understanding the absurdity of an NRA spokesperson saying not to fight back.
Kimberly Ross from the popular conservative site RedState is equally lacking in self awareness; her faux concern for the Parkland teens isn’t even plausible. In this new article, Ross says she wants the kids to get yelled at and says, “Where are their parents?...Frankly, it’s gross...point out how their growing and quite bloated, sense of entitlement is unhealthy, and discuss how the problem isn’t weaponry, but internal and a matter of the heart. I would encourage them to chastize their teenagers... it is grotesque.“
She also trashes the Parkland teens for “arrogant behavior,” and Hogg in particular for boycotting companies. Weapons designed for military use being regulated less than a car, fine, kids saying mean things about it, oh that’s a really big problem.
Perfectly coordinated, the Right’s latest tactic, potty mouth is only okay when the person speaking agrees with you. I’m not sure if they thought this whole ‘dirty and mean words are bad and disqualify your POV’ thing through all the way, when ummmmm Trump is in the White House.
