Is there anything more ironic than Hillary Clinton accusing somebody else of being a Communist, much less a conservative organization?
Well, that’s precisely what happened on Wednesday as Hillary spoke in Iowa to attempt to salvage her flailing campaign that has yet to clutch a grabbing message for her doomed campaign.
Speaking to a crowd, the 2016 Democrat contender that is rapidly losing ground to fellow socialist Bernie Sanders spoke of the National Rifle Association (NRA) and declared that dealing with them is like dealing with the Iranians or the Communists (presumably, the Communists of the USSR. But she could mean Cuba or the North Koreans.)
Clinton said “I also have said that I would take certain executive actions to close these loopholes. And it may be, because you know the White House has time ahead — it maybe be that the White House will want to do that. And I would be fully supportive of that, whatever we can do to send a message. Now the real answer to this is for gun owners to form a different organization that supports the Second Amendment, supports their rights to own guns, use guns, go hunting, goes target shooting, but stands against the absolutism of the NRA.”
She added, “You know, the NRA’s position reminds me of negotiating with the Iranians or the Communists. You know there is no possible discussion and it’s for political purposes.”
Sure- that seems reasonable. I’m confident that the statist candidate has no hidden agenda in her assertion that constitutional conservatives should wave the white flag of surrender in order to form a new organization dedicated to advancing the left’s notion of “commonsense gun control.”
The NRA is a civil rights organization. It notes that Americans are granted a set of certain inalienable rights and this is codified in law. The organization also asserts that the government should follow this law and not attempt to rob citizens of these rights.
Only a true tyrant would besmirch this noble civil rights organization for doing nothing more than working to protect our civil liberties.
