Left aims hatred at NRA members

Consider the rhetoric of University of Rhode Island Professor Erik Loomis. He teaches “U.S. environmental history, the Civil War, late 19th and early 20th century America, labor history, and the American West” in the university’s history department. Online, however, Professor Loomis is a militantly unhinged foe of all things conservative.

This week, the nutty professor took to Twitter to rail against law-abiding gun owners and the National Rifle Association. “Looks like the National Rifle Association has murdered some more children,” Professor Loomis fumed. “Now I want Wayne LaPierre’s head on a stick,” he added. (LaPierre is Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer of the NRA.) Professor Loomis was just warming up.

“F**k the National Rifle Association and its policies to put crazy guns in everyone’s hands,” Professor Loomis tweeted. “You are g*dd*mn right we should politicize this tragedy. F**k the NRA. Wayne LaPierre should be in prison,” he spewed. “Can we define NRA membership dues as contributing to a terrorist organization?”

If all that wasn’t clear enough, Professor Loomis also re-tweeted the following message from a fellow left-winger: “First f**ker to say the solution is for elementary school teachers to carry guns needs to get beaten to death.”

When the conservative group Campus Reform called attention to the craziness, Professor Loomis whined about a “right-wing intimidation campaign.” Sane university professors shook their heads. University of Tennessee law professor and blogger Glenn Reynolds explained the anti-NRA syllogism at work:

“(1) Something bad happened; (2) I hate you; so (3) It’s your fault. This sort of reasoning has played out in all sorts of places over the past century, with poor results. One would expect a history professor to know better.”

Unfortunately, Professor Loomis is not alone. Famed author Joyce Carol Oates also took to Twitter to blame the entire membership of the NRA for one evil-doer’s massacre. “Another NRA-sponsored massacre for Christmas 2012,” Oates wrote. She then accused any politicians who supported the NRA of “felony homicide.” And then she mused hopefully for mass shootings against the NRA: “If sizable numbers of NRA members become gun-victims themselves, maybe hope for legislation of firearms?” Shockingly, actress Marg Helgenberger of the TV show “CSI” cheered her on: “One can only hope, but sadly I don’t think anything would change.”

    Everytime she goes on tv looks like she is ready to bust a vein. With her hatred for Obama I think maybe putting someone on tv who comes across as rational would make any points you are trying to make a little more coherent.

        He is your POTUS also unless your going to denounce citizenship. You repubs must be really in fear. I guess watching a network telling you that your winning and then watching election results well what a “priceless” moment. Mrs. Clinton should be in nice position in 2016 to finish the ass-kicking. I have no great love for BO just like to state the obvious he still trumps anything that the repubs have to offer. He flys on AF 1 while your guys pumps there own gas.

          Ya know, I recall making the very same point to those of you on the Left when George W. Bush was president, and it certainly didn’t change the tone and tenor of your virulent criticism, did it? The fact that you seem to think that Obama “trumps anything that the repubs have to offer” only demonstrates your own appalling ignorance about this country’s financial situation, never mind what it will take to fix it.

            Well I said the dems had bad candidates to run against Bush and repubs had lousy ones also to take on Obama. Your not in good shape for next one either. Better figure out to get candidates that can win a national elections. Since you have lost popular vote in 5 of last six as long as you and Bat One are ignorant of those facts you will keep getting it handed to you. Figure it out. Boehner’s joke of a vote tomorrow will prove that again.

            If the electorate refuses to listen to the truth about the country’s finances and what it will take to put things right again – not to mention how much worst things are and continue to get under Obama – then they deserve what they get. Those of us who know better are also better prepared for the worst.

    China Demands US Citizens Be Disarmed

    Posted on December 19, 2012
    by Conservative Byte

    The official Chinese government news agency, Xinhua, has demanded the US immediately adopt stricter gun control measures to reduce the number of firearms the US populace is permitted to possess.

    The Chinese state-controlled media’s statement, titled “Innocent Blood Demands No Delay for US Gun Control,” is primarily focused on the Newtown tragedy in which 26 Americans were killed by a mad gunman. Twenty of the victims were young children.
    The Chinese government stated, “Their blood and tears demand no delay for the U.S. gun control.”

    In an apparent effort to restrict information to their populace, the Chinese government wrote of a number of US mass shootings but failed to mention they were either stopped by a citizen legally carrying a firearm or otherwise only occurred in the controversial gun-free zones that critics say make prime targets for madmen.

      Hmmmm…. not unlike our own democrat A/V department (ie media). I wonder if they share same sympathies?

      Lol… stupid question…..

        Look at this stupid British libtard.

        False moral high ground also leads
        to arrogance and elitist thinking..
        Stupid a$$ indoctrinated useful idiots..

          There’s an answer to this… obviously Comrade Morgan has a love of his Euro-leftist land he forsook and the draconian authoritarianism he so obviously pines for… the simple fix is a plane ticket and a few misc. forms filled out and submitted to the USCIS. PROBLEMS SOLVED!

    Silly woman, that Ms. Oates. Those “sizable numbers of NRA members” aren’t going to be the victims of shootings, since we are the ones who believe, fervently, in the Second Amendment and are the ones with guns at home and carry permits.

      When I read their literature, I see the names of a lot of active duty and retired law enforcement and veterans in there. More so than most of the civilian gun owners, these guys know which end the round comes out!
