The National Rifle Association truly is a repugnant organization led by despicable people.Sound harsh? You be the judge.On Thursday, the NRA tried to hijack a hashtag movement promoted by the father of a female TV reporter shot to death on live television.That’s right: The NRA decided it was OK, in the spirit of “protecting” the Second Amendment, to mock murder victims.
The father is Andy Parker; his daughter, WDBJ-TV reporter Alison Parker, was gunned down last month along with colleague Adam Ward. After the incident, Andy Parker said he would do “whatever it takes” to improve gun control laws in a needed effort to reduce gun violence. Thus was born the hashtag #WhateverItTakes, which was quickly embraced by some gun control groups.
Yael T. Abouhalkah is the butthurt writer of that piece. It makes me laugh that he and his ilk do believe that they are not to be opposed when they speak their piece, and find themselves horrified that others would not only have a different point of view, but are daring enough to take them in their alleged sacred grounds. That is unfeelingly, that is impolite…we are mocking the poor victims with our presence alone! The horror! Isn’t there any humanity left?
If I missed the memo where Twitter became private parcel of the Gun Control movement, would somebody be kind enough to forward it to me?
I guess they were not expecting that the rednecks would show up, pee on the potted palms, take their sisters and a bottle of white lightning upstairs to have a good time and watch college football in their living room.
But we are ornery that way.
