Ted Nugent: Obama 'Is The Biggest Racist In America'

Last week, NRA board member and musician Ted Nugent attacked President Obama for saying that NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick is “exercising his constitutional right” not to stand for the National Anthem, calling it a sign of Obama’s racism.

Nugent, who has threatened to kill Obama, referred to the president as a “chimpanzee” and “subhuman mongrel,” and claimed he’d be “dead or in jail” by 2013 if the president was re-elected, told radio host Joe Pags that Obama “is the biggest racist in America.”

“No one is oppressed in America unless you choose to be oppressed,” he added.

Later in the interview, Nugent said that there is a “triad of evil”—government, media and academia—bent on destroying America, and “if Hillary Clinton becomes elected, we are done.”

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 7/11/16

  • Meet Donald Trump's spiritual adviser, Paula White.
  • Mat Staver says that a man trying to marry his laptop is what happens "when you say that gender no longer matters in a gender-specific relationship such as marriage, then anything goes. It becomes a free-for-all; marriage becomes a mockery, and that, I think, is one of the aspects of this particular case — marriage becomes a mockery. But we're going to see more of that ridiculous kind of notion, and really, at the end of the day, all this is an assault on marriage itself."
  • Ted Nugent says that President Obama "wants a race war."
  • A warning from Bill Muehlenberg: "When the heavy hand of the law gets into bed with the homosexual and transgender militants then we are all at risk."
  • Finally, Mike Heath is back in Maine with a new right-wing group that is working "to restore America to its former greatness by repealing same sex marriage laws and making homosexuality a crime."

Ted Nugent: If You Hate Me, You Hate America

While speaking this week with conservative radio host Joe Pags, National Rifle Association board member and musician Ted Nugent declared that anyone who doesn’t like him must hate America and everything the country stands for.

Nugent defended the NRA from its detractors, saying that those who are critical of the group only want to help criminals.

“There is nothing more anti-American than the freaks that hate me,” Nugent said, after going on a rant against Hillary Clinton and “Bernie Mao Zedong Sanders.” “As the freaks hate me, I go, ‘Man, I really am right all the time,’” he said.

Nugent also criticized performers who have canceled events in North Carolina and Mississippi after the states enacted anti-LGBT laws, adding that while he doesn’t hate transgender people, he thinks they have a “mentally illness.”

“It opens the door to perverts and child molesters and rapists and sexual offenders,” he said of nondiscrimination policies.

Ted Nugent Fantasizes About Hillary Clinton Being Shot; GOP Still Wants His Org To Vet Supreme Court Nominees

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said that the Senate won’t confirm any Supreme Court nominee unless that nominee has the support of the National Rifle Association, which has been stretching the truth in its efforts to oppose the nomination of Merrick Garland.

The absurdity of this position was reinforced yesterday when, as Media Matters reported, NRA board member and perpetual loose cannon Ted Nugent posted on his Facebook page a fake video of Hillary Clinton being shot, with the caption “I got your guncontrol right here bitch!”

This is who McConnell wants in charge of vetting Supreme Court justices?

This sort of gleeful violence is nothing new to Nugent, who in a 2007 onstage rant relished the prospect of killing Clinton and then-candidate Obama:

Decked out in full-on camouflage hunting gear, Nugent wielded two machine guns while raging, "Obama, he's a piece of shit. I told him to suck on my machine gun. Hey Hillary," he continued. "You might want to ride one of these into the sunset, you worthless bitch." Nugent summed up his eloquent speech by screaming "freedom!"

Earlier this year, Nugent engaged in a week-long anti-Semitic meltdown, including posting a Facebook meme alleging that Jewish politicians and activists are “behind gun control.”

Stunningly, there seems to be no organized effort within the NRA to fire Nugent, even as some NRA members have been waging a campaign to oust anti-tax activist Grover Norquist from the organization’s board because they claim he is a Muslim Brotherhood agent.

Nugent, not surprisingly, is enthusiastically backing Donald Trump in the presidential race.

So, Senate Republicans are refusing to so much as hold a hearing on Garland’s nomination in the hope that Trump will become president and nominate someone who has been approved by Nugent and his organization? Sounds reasonable.

Ted Nugent Compares Hillary Clinton To Hitler Based On Fake Quotes

NRA board member Ted Nugent, who recently got in some hot water for sharing anti-Semitic memes on his Facebook page, took to Facebook again today to post side-by-side photos of Adolf Hitler and Hillary Clinton, accompanied by two fake quotes.

 

Now sitback & enjoy the abject insanity as zombies squaller like rabid coons in denial! Bringit goofballs! tell us hillary isnt a lying felon & how dems support anything American. dare ya

Posted by Ted Nugent on Tuesday, February 23, 2016

It’s no surprise that Nugent, who has called Clinton a “worthless bitch” who should be executed, would share such a meme, which Snopes points out relies on unsubstantiated quotes:

The purported quotation from Hillary Clinton ("We must stop thinking of the individual and start thinking about what is best for society") has been widely reproduced online over the last several years and has been included in dozens of books; yet no one seems to know when, where, or in what context she supposedly said it. Some sources claim that Hillary Clinton uttered those words sometime in 1993 (during her initial year as First Lady) but provide no documentation beyond simply citing a year.



Given the complete lack of any documentation that Hillary Clinton actually spoke the words attributed to her, the likely conclusion is that this alleged Hitlerian echo quote is a fabricated "Hillariasm."

Moreover, we came up short attempting to document the original quotation of Hitler's that Hillary Clinton supposedly reflected with her own words. It appears to be, at best, a loose paraphrase of something Hitler once said (or someone's idea of the type of thing Hitler might have said), as noted in the book From a Race of Masters to a Master Race:

Fascism, communism and national socialism all share in common the explicit premise that the individual must subordinate himself to society's needs, or as Hitler would phrase it: 'Society's needs come before the individual needs.'

Even though Hitler led a political party known as the "National Socialist German Workers' Party," he was no socialist. In fact, he despised socialism and communism and worked to eradicate both those ideologies; the Nazism he espoused was a political ideology based on race, not class.

Finally, we note that whatever the truth of either quotation, this item is a prime example of the Reductio ad Hitlerum argument, a logical fallacy holding that a particular viewpoint is undeniably "bad" or "wrong" if it happens to have been shared by Hitler.

Five Conservatives Who Think Obama Murdered Scalia

It was inevitable that some conservative activists would push conspiracy theories surrounding the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, warning that Scalia was killed on the orders of President Obama as part of his nefarious plan to introduce socialism and perform demonic pagan rituals.

5) Rick Wiles

End Times radio host Rick Wiles knows the real reason Obama tried to murder Scalia. And as you have probably already guessed, it was part of a numerology-inspired pagan ritual to use Scalia as a human sacrifice to Satan:

4) Ted Nugent

NRA board member Ted Nugent posted on his Facebook page a “report” from a website called InvestmentWatch alleging that Scalia was murdered to help Obama push through his policies on climate change.

 

Who can possibly trust our evil rotten runaway criminal government at this heartbreaking point in time?http://investmentwatchblog.com/the-motive-behind-the-murder-of-justice-scalia/

Posted by Ted Nugent on Wednesday, February 17, 2016

 

3) Alex Jones

Immediately after news broke of Scalia’s death, Alex Jones of InfoWars insisted that the justice was killed as part of an Obama-led conspiracy. The following day, Jones and his news crew agreed that Obama decided to kill Scalia in order to push through gun reform and socialism, while sparking “the final war” over the future of America.

2) William Gheen

The head of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC), William Gheen, thinks that Obama may have murdered Scalia in order to “hand control of the highest court in our land to liberal socialists for the first time in American history” and change the outcome of an upcoming Supreme Court ruling on the president’s executive actions on immigration.

Judge Scalia's death at the average lifespan for modern Americans, 79 years, comes just in time for the final months of the despised Obama administration. The new math on the Supreme Court without Scalia will allow them to immediately rule in favor of Obama's unconstitutional amnesty for illegals orders! How convenient for the liberals that the death of one man would create such an incredible power to radically transform America in the next few months regardless of if Congress blocks Obama from replacing Scalia! There are so many powerful people with motive to want Scalia dead and now he is dead from 'natural causes' sans any autopsy or toxicology tests to back that up.

1) Michael Savage

Conservative talk show host Michael Savage has brought his suspicions about Scalia’s death all the way to the GOP presidential frontrunner: Donald Trump.

Trump, naturally, said he found the pillow placement on Scalia’s bed "pretty unusual," while Savage called for a Warren Commission-style investigation into his death.

Ted Nugent: Young People Back Bernie Sanders' 'Potentially Deadly' Policies Because They've Been Brainwashed

In his weekly column for WorldNetDaily yesterday, NRA board member and far-right activist Ted Nugent explained why Bernie Sanders has won a huge following among young people: public school brainwashing.

“After being indoctrinated by our public schools that capitalism is corrupt, that America is a racist country and that more government will make things fair, it is no surprise Millennials have gravitated to Sanders’ socialism like stinky hippies to a free concert,” he said, criticizing the “embarrassing, clueless young people” who back Sanders’ policies even though they have “historically proven to be dangerous, beyond dumb and potentially even deadly.”

“Crazy Bernie is peddling some nasty, toxic snake oil to children,” he continued. “You youngsters might want to do a little research beyond your social engineering classes at NumbNut University.”

A word to the embarrassing, clueless young people who believe Sen. Sanders is their ticket to prosperity: There is no free lunch.

Old Bernie is scamming young people with his “democratic socialism” and politically correct, fantasy-driven, feel-good “fairness” tripe. Regretfully, too few of our young people have the worldly know-how or basic economic smarts to see that his dusty ideas are historically proven to be dangerous, beyond dumb and potentially even deadly.

Young people have every right to feel disenfranchised, angry and dissatisfied, I’ll give you that. With the country lurching toward $20 trillion in debt and racing maniacally toward the $30 trillion mark, Fedzilla has literally robbed Millennials of their future. The American dream may very well be something the Millennials read about instead of something they achieve. Sorry, folks, but like Sen. Sanders, bad news does not get better with age.

Sanders’ brand of big-government socialism essentially calls for plundering the wealth of billionaires (of which there are less than 600 in America) and redistributing that wealth to others who will receive the so-called “free stuff” such as a college education, womb-to-tomb health care, vacations and assorted goodies and bonuses we used to earn for ourselves.

What is not-so-amazing is how and why Millennials believe Sen. Sanders’ big-government socialism ideas are flush with prosperity. After being indoctrinated by our public schools that capitalism is corrupt, that America is a racist country and that more government will make things fair, it is no surprise Millennials have gravitated to Sanders’ socialism like stinky hippies to a free concert.
 

Ted Nugent Touts Donald Trump: 'At Least He'll Be A Liar Of A Different Color'

Despite Ted Cruz’s best efforts to court NRA board member Ted Nugent, the far-right activist posted on his Facebook page yesterday a note from a friend touting Donald Trump.

Ted Nugent Declares That He Is A 'Motown Black Man' Who Will Free Democratic 'Slaves'

Ted Nugent has had quite a start to 2016, posting anti-Semitic messages on his Facebook page and ludicrously declaring that he is a war hero, all of which came just weeks after he called for President Obama and Hillary Clinton to be killed.

Nugent, a board member of the NRA, kept it up with a bizarre column for WorldNetDaily yesterday in which he said that he is a “Motown black man” who is intent on freeing other black people from their “modern slave masters known as the Democratic Party.”

As a large, in charge, Motown black man my bad-self, who honed my Sonic Baptizm, soul-cleansing soulmusic on the greasy rhythm and blues of the musical funk and roll gods James Brown and Chuck Berry et al., and who learned and then perfected the fine art of American defiance from my hero Rosa Parks, I continue to celebrate nonstop all things good and black.

My motto has always been: Black is beautiful. Minimal exposure to my killer Detroit guitar playing would immediately reveal why I was voted the No. 1 Guitarist Alltime in Michigan a few years back. No cracker can play like that!

If you don’t like it, well funk you very much.

February is the month some Americans celebrate black history. Remembering history is good. A wise person once said that those who fail to remember history are doomed to repeat it. And sadly, repeat it we do.

It’s been over 50 years that the modern slave masters known as the Democratic Party created policies and programs designed to keep black folk down. Through their scamming so-called anti-poverty programs, the Democratic Party has enslaved far too many black Americans into a life of poverty.

Poverty runs rampant in our communities. Unemployment amongst my black brothers and sisters is double that of white Americans. And what does the Democratic Party propose doing? The same scams it has been pulling off for the past 50 years: enticing black folk to look to Uncle Sugar for the cure when it’s been Uncle Sugar who has put black folk on the poverty plantation.



The Democratic Party has preyed on black brothers and sisters for too long. What they have done to black America is arguably a crime against humanity. They have essentially killed the dream of the promised land that brother Martin Luther King spoke about, yet the NAACP, the Congressional Black Caucus and others still support the Democratic Party. Simply amazing.

Black power begins with recognizing who our real enemies are and who are friends are. The Democratic Party is nothing more than a pack of wolves festooned in shiny, white sheepskin. The Democratic Party has conned us into voting for them for decades, and in every instance, our votes for them have been against our own economic self-interest.

Ted Nugent's Anti-Semitic Meltdown Continues

Musician and NRA board member Ted Nugent is receiving criticism from civil rights group and praise from white nationalists after posting multiple anti-Semitic rants on his Facebook page this week. But, as Timothy Johnson of Media Matters notes, Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign is “still touting praise” from Nugent.

Nugent, who in the last few days suggested that gun reform is an evil Jewish plot, portrayed Jewish leaders as Nazis paving the way for the next Holocaust and mocked Holocaust victims as “soulless sheep,” has now engaged in several debates on his Facebook page over his remarks.

In one debate, Nugent defended himself by saying that he was a war hero in the Iraq War.

Nugent did not serve in the Iraq War, although he did meet with troops in Iraq alongside fellow musician Toby Keith as part of a USO tour. There is a running debate as to whether Nugent faked a medical exam in order to avoid the Vietnam War draft.

The conservative entertainer also criticized a Jewish gun group, Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, for issuing a statement condemning his “deeply anti-Semitic comments.”

In his response, Nugent condemned the group’s “sad bullshit” and said that if he had lived in Nazi Germany, he would have helped lead “the charge to disarm Nazis and kill them with their own Lugers.”

How tragic that the self inflicted scourge of political correctness can blind so many otherwise intelligent people! Jews...

Ted Nugent Defends Anti-Semitic Facebook Rant By Calling Jewish Leaders 'Nazis'

It seems that NRA board member Ted Nugent is quite upset that anyone would dare criticize his anti-Semitic Facebook memes, writing on his Facebook page last night that he is simply trying to honor victims of the Holocaust by stopping the next one.

"What sort of racist prejudiced POS could possibly not know that Jews for guncontrol are nazis in disguise?" Nugent said. "'NEVER AGAIN!' Anyone? Anyone?? RUFKM!"

Just when you hope that mankind couldnt possibly get any dumber or more dishonest, superFreaks rise to the occasion....

Posted by Ted Nugent on Monday, February 8, 2016

Nugent's fans quickly rose to his defense, and the right-wing activist and musician proceeded to "like" several anti-Semitic comments on his thread:

Ted Nugent: Holocaust Victims Were 'Soulless Sheep To The Slaughter'

Yesterday, NRA board member Ted Nugent posted an anti-Semitic meme to his Facebook page suggesting that gun control is a Jewish plot.

Naturally, Nugent followed that first meme by posting a photo of Nazi soldiers rounding up Jewish families, whom he called “Soulless sheep to the slaughter.” The meme claimed that America is on “the same path” as Nazi Germany.

Nugent once fantasized about how he would lead the resistance to Nazi tyranny.

NRA's Ted Nugent Posts Anti-Semitic Photo On Facebook

NRA board member Ted Nugent posted a photo of Jewish leaders on his Facebook page today with the caption “So who is really behind gun control?” alleging that “these punks” support stricter gun laws because they “hate freedom.” Just to drive home the point that the pictured activists and politicians are Jewish, the photo includes an Israeli flag emblem by each person’s face.

“Tell every1 you know how evil they are,” Nugent wrote. “Let us raise maximum hell to shut them down!”

The leaders listed include the late Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.); Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.); Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.); Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.); Sen. Mark Levin (D-Mich.); Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.); Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel; former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg; attorney and pundit Alan Dershowitz; Boston developer John Rosenthal, who founded the group Stop Handgun Violence; Dan Gross, President of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence; and Max Nacheman, the former executive director of CeaseFire PA.

This isn’t Nugent’s first foray into anti-Semitic imagery.

Ted Nugent Wants Obama Executed: 'He's The Enemy Of America'

Yesterday, National Rifle Association board member Ted Nugent took to Facebook to declare that President Obama and Hillary Clinton “should be tried for treason & hung,” and later that day appeared on Newsmax TV to continue to rail against Obama.

“He’s been groomed to fool the dumbing-down victims, the self-inflicted, dumbing-down victims of America,” Nugent said of Obama. “Nobody in their right mind, and I do mean correct-educated, conscientious, logical, self-evident-truth-grasping mind, will believe this punk. This guy does want an unarmed public. This guy does want to economically ruin America. This guy hates America, he hates the Constitution and he hates the Bill of Rights. I believe, as so many Americans are learning more and more every day, that the president of the United States hates freedom. He’s the enemy of America.”

Nugent went on to claim that Obama is “the engineer and the ramrod for the worst clusterfuck in the history of America” who was “raised by Frank Marshall ‘Communist’ Davis and adheres to the Saul Alinsky book of destroying America.”

Naturally, Nugent said that all of Obama’s supporters are “liabilities” to America and “braindead” haters of freedom, while gushing that “Donald Trump is as close to Ted Nugent as you’re going to get in politics.”

However, “my dream is if Ted Cruz became president tonight.”

Ted Nugent: 'Racist' 'Freak' Obama Is 'The Enemy Of Freedom'

As you might have guessed, NRA board member and conservative musician Ted Nugent is not exactly happy with President Obama’s executive actions on gun violence.

“The president’s a freak,” Nugent announced on “The Joe Pags Show” yesterday. “The president is a Saul Alinsky master of puppetry.”

Resuscitating the NRA-bolstered myth that “the most innocent lives in the United States of America have been lost in every instance in gun-free zones,” Nugent asked of Obama: “What kind of evil-facilitating, complicit freak would want more gun-free zones? That’s like literally saying, this is the whitewater rapids where all the children have died, line the children up to jump in the whitewater rapids. This is Fedzilla at its most evil. This is Fedzilla on the side of criminals.”

He then went on to accuse Obama of “being racist” in his remarks on the death of Trayvon Martin, whom Nugent called “a known drug addict” and “a known thug.”

Nugent also told Pags, a San Antonio radio host, that soldiers and veterans consistently tell him that “the commander-in-chief is the enemy of America,” while insisting that several states have already eliminated the Second Amendment.

“Our president and his administration is the enemy of freedom,” he said.

Twisted: The Far-Right's Disgraceful Reaction To The Sandy Hook Massacre

Last month, Donald Trump appeared on “The Alex Jones Show,” where he told the right-wing pundit that he has an “amazing” reputation, unlike other journalists, whom Trump commonly refers to as “scum.” Among Jones’ many wild conspiracy theories is his belief that the massacre at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, which took place three years ago today, was “staged” by the Obama administration.

Trump has not faced any criticism from his fellow Republicans for going on Jones’ program or for touting his work, despite the fact that Jones has been instrumental in pushing the harmful Sandy Hook conspiracy theory.

A 2013 Fairleigh Dickinson University poll found that “a quarter (25%) of Americans think that facts about the shootings at Sandy Hook elementary last year are being hidden and an additional eleven percent are unsure” and that “Republicans are more likely to think that the truth about Sandy Hook is being suppressed, with 32 percent agreeing.”

Sandy Hook truthers, who largely believe that the attack was faked as part of a government plot to push strict gun laws, are not alone in delivering twisted responses to the mass shooting. Others have used the massacre to attack gay marriage, the separation of church and state and, of course, gun laws.

The Truthers

WorldNetDaily columnist Erik Rush said that Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza “positively reeked of what intelligence operatives I know would call the tell-tale signs of recruitment and conditioning,” and wondered if Lanza was the target of a government scheme to recruit “vulnerable individuals for psyops” to advance “their diabolical agenda.”

Renew America’s Austin Miles similarly suggested that the massacre was “purposely orchestrated” to “disarm all Americans to retard resistance,” writing that Lanza and others were “brainwashed into carrying out such deeds that would prove a point about private gun ownership and the threat to all families as a result.” Then, he said, there would be no opposition to Obama using an “Executive Order to declare himself president (dictator) for life.” Fellow Renew America pundit, Laurie Roth, claimed Obama “staged” the attack because he’s on a “mission to take assault weapons from the people.”

Radio host Rick Wiles stated that “Sandy Hook was timed to coincide with the political agenda of the socialist Democrats such as Barry Soetoro [Obama], Chuckie Schumer, and Dianne Feinstein to pass stringent federal gun control laws,” alleging that “the shooting event was timed to coincide with the gun control initiative.” Another conservative radio host, Bradlee Dean, likened the Sandy Hook killings to Adolf Hitler “attacking his own Reichstag to start a world war” and said that it was orchestrated to pass an arms control treaty.

The Tea Party-aligned National Liberty Foundation insisted that the “staged” massacre showed just “how far your president went to get your guns”: “He wants to be a dictator, he doesn’t want to get out of the White House and he loves spending your money.”

Many of their assertions relied heavily on discredited claims that “crisis actors” posed as grieving family members at the school and that one of the young victims later met with President Obama (she didn’t, it was her little sister).

One Republican congressman, Louie Gohmert, however, told a fan of his that he would watch a Sandy Hook conspiracy theory video because he’s “always learning new things.”

Religious Right’s Reaction

Several Religious Right activists responded to the Sandy Hook shooting by warning that the massacre was a sign that God is no longer protecting America, removing his hand of protection due to supposed societal ills such as gay marriage, abortion rights and the separation of church and state.

“Millions of people have decided that God doesn’t exist, or he’s irrelevant to me and we have killed 54 million babies and the institution of marriage is right on the verge of a complete redefinition,” Focus on the Family founder James Dobson lamented. “Believe me, that is going to have consequences too. And a lot of these things are happening around us, and somebody is going to get mad at me for saying what I am about to say right now, but I am going to give you my honest opinion: I think we have turned our back on the Scripture and on God Almighty and I think he has allowed judgment to fall upon us.”

“We’ve taken God our of our school, we’ve taken him out of our government and now we seem shocked at all of these things,” Franklin Graham stated following the attack. “Why are we shocked? We shouldn’t be shocked. This is what happens when a society turns its back on God.” Author Joel Rosenberg said the shooting was one of the tragedies America is “reaping as a result of a society that increasingly ignores God,” specifically blaming comedian Jon Stewart for waging a “war on Christmas” and mocking conservatives.

Before winning his race for Congress, Georgia Republican Jody Hice said the shooting was a consequence of “kicking God out of the public square.”

Mike Huckabee blamed the Sandy Hook massacre on those who have tried to “systematically removed God from our schools,” turning schools into “a place of carnage.” He claimed that school shootings would be a thing of the past if only schools started organizing chapel services for students and the government stopped ordering employers to “provide tax-funded abortion pills.”

One pastor said that a “gracious,” “merciful” and “loving” God decided not to intervene to prevent the shooting because it would “bring us back to our senses” and make people realize that God’s judgment “has really come by our turning away from the Lord.” Bryan Fischer of American Family Radio specifically blamed legal abortion and the lack of state-sponsored prayer for the attack, stating that God is a “gentleman” who “is not going to go where he is not wanted.”

Blocking background checks

Ted Cruz has proudly boasted of his role in successfully blocking a bipartisan Senate measure to expand background checks on gun purchases following the school shooting, bragging that unlike Republican “squishes,” he stood firm in opposing universal background checks. The Sandy Hook-affected families who supported the efforts, he said, were being used as “political props.”

One of the main organizations that worked with Cruz in fighting the effort, Gun Owners of America, pushed fears that the background checks could lead to gun confiscation, tyranny and genocide. The group’s executive director, Larry Pratt, said liberals “rejoice” following events like Sandy Hook, as they “immediately start shedding their crocodile tears, pushing for more gun control,” and, possibly, martial law.

National Rifle Association board member and musician Ted Nugent blamed the shooting on America’s “politically correct culture” and “‘anything goes’ value system” which “vilifies, condemns and mocks traditional societal values and customs at every opportunity,” while NRA executive director Wayne LaPierre delivered an unhinged speech against gun control measures, lashing out at the group’s critics, the entertainment industry, video games, the media and a lack of guns in schools.

But while nearly nine out of 10 Americans, including nine out of 10 gun owners, support more background checks, Republican lawmakers care more about the support they receive from groups like the NRA, and have done next to nothing to tackle the issue of gun violence in the wake of tragedies like Sandy Hook.

Instead, Republicans claimed that the government should focus on mental health and thentried to block access to mental health services.

Few if any of the GOP presidential candidates are offering any meaningful gun reform proposals, outside of their unwavering dogma: More guns.
