America 'divided' on whether to fire Larry Pratt into the sun
Oh look, Gun Owners of America is in the news again. What'll it be this time, Larry Pratt? Conspiracy theories about the feds coming to take your ammo away? Did someone dig up another one of your old ties to anti-Semitic and white supremacist groups
? Why the hell
are you in America's newsfeed this time around
“The Second Amendment was designed for people just like the president and his administration,” Pratt said. “And yes, if the New York Times and the Rolling Stone, and whoever else wants to have a hissy fit, yes, our guns are in our hands for people like those in our government right now that think they wanna go tyrannical on us, we’ve got something for ‘em. That’s what it’s all about.”
“The Second Amendment,” he continued, “is not about hunting, it’s not about target shooting, it’s about Democrats who want to take our rights.”
Oh, right. A vow that the Second Amendment exists so that Larry Pratt's gun club can maybe shoot the black president, who (black) heads the most tyrannical (black) administration Larry Pratt has ever (blaaaaaaack) witnessed. Oh, and whichever Democrats get in the way.
Larry Pratt has previously piped up with theories that Barack Obama is assembling a secret army of black people and that the Aurora theater shooting was a false flag operation by the United Nations. For this he has been feted in Republican circles and looked to as a powerful "voice" on gun rights by MSNBC, CNN and Fox News. Republican Senate candidates seek his endorsement. Republican presidential candidates hold town meetings to vie for his attention. The guy who says the Second Amendment was "designed for people just like the president" is one of the Republican Party's important primary-season kingmakers, because Gun Owners of America needs to look each candidate in the eye, ask them about freedoms, and decide which ones of them might or might not need to be shot.
Really now, conservative America, I can't thank you enough for how you've elevated the worst shitstains in the nation to positions of political power. You really have turned politics into a top-notch racist theme park.
You know, there was a time in this nation not all that many decades ago where conservatives who weren't keen on certain civil rights just up and murdered whichever American leaders were seen as imposing that "tyranny" on them. There seems little doubt that Larry Pratt looks back on those years as the good old days.
