  •  They live and die on fear, paranoia and deceit (3+ / 0-)

    Look through the posts and twitter you see, ranging in everything from conspiracies about government bullet hording (which the NRA tried to point out to it's members wasn't real) to their fake ads and assertions of gun grabbing.

    The problem is they have created so many fake boogeymen that now half the people who follow them believe the zany conspiracy theories and you just can't real them in... so far that the NRA is facing competitors TO THE RIGHT of them who are even zanier.

    This is the problem with whipping up a mob; you encourage their paranoia and eventually you will lose the ability to control that mob mentality.
