It must be really frustrating to be a Democrat. Like, we know they have some malfunction in their brains that causes them to “get off” on self-loathing and misery, but the constant failure must get to them, right? Everything they touch turns to absolute crap. It’s not an exaggeration to say that if it weren’t for progressives, the U.S. would probably be a lot further to the left on social policies than we actually are right now. Every time these idiots start running their mouths about what we “need” as a nation, the nation gets sick, throws up, and goes in the opposite direction.
It’s really hilarious, actually.
Take the left’s latest war on the NRA. According to Democrats, political analysts in the liberal media, Hollywood celebrities, and a few smug Stoneman Douglas High School students, the National Rifle Association is the source of all the gun violence ills in this country. This isn’t an uncommon stance for them to take after one of these heinous tragedies, but this time they’ve gone farther than ever before in demonizing the NRA. Hell, there were even a few media outlets trying to make it seem as though the NRA trained the Parkland shooter! And we don’t doubt for a second that at least a few liberals believed it. Fake news exists for a reason, after all.
But it appears that if it was the left’s intention to drive people away from the NRA, they have failed spectacularly. If anything, the organization is stronger than ever. According to the Daily Mail, membership in the NRA has surged in the weeks since the Florida tragedy. Google searches for “NRA membership” spiked “4,900 percent” in the aftermath of the shooting.
Pro-gun activist Cleta Mitchell told the paper that the Hollywood boycott of the NRA would not have the slightest effect on the organization or its members.
“There is no one – NO ONE – who joins the NRA for a discount on a rental car,” Mitchell said. “You can rest assured that the NRA will not lose a single member as a result of this. If anything, it should spur people to join the NRA as a means of demonstrating that we who believe in the Second Amendment will not be bullied by these left wing multi-billion dollar corporations.”
