Since President Scaryblack Shabazz "Where the white women at?" Ali McBlackmalcolm X is no longer in the White House and firearm and ammo sales are down sharply in 2017 without a Democrat around to "come to take your guns", it seems that the National Rifle Association has to continue to drum up its own targets of fear in order to sell, sell, sell those shootin' irons. As a result, right-wing loudmouth Dana Loesch and the NRA have declared war on the NY Times.
Another inflammatory video from the National Rife Association went viral Friday afternoon.
In a short video, NRA spokesperson and conservative firebrand Dana Loesch threatened a "laser-focus" on the New York Times, dubbing the paper "pretentious" and "tone-deaf" without specifying what issues the NRA has with the Times' reporting.
"We've had it with your narratives, your propaganda, your fake news," Loesch said. "We've had it with your constant protection of your Democrat overlords, your refusal to acknowledge any truth that upsets the fragile construct that you believe is real life."
"Consider this the shot across your proverbial bow," she added. "We've going to fisk the New York Times and find out just what deep, rich means to this old, gray hag."
"Laser-focus" and "shot across the proverbial bow" from a firearm advocacy group is a pretty unmistakable threat, is it not?
Alas, Trump can't sell guns quite like the inchoate racist rage against a black president did. I don't think fear of a newspaper will do it either, but it's much more likely to get a reporter shot one of these days.
Of course, maybe that's the point.
