You can’t make these characters up–who would believe them? Can you imagine being in the room with Wayne LaPierre and his NRA peeps? Would love to hear the definition of political and media honesty from the man and his followers. Thanks to Salon.com for the story, in ever definition of the word.
The trouble, LaPierre explained, was the fault of elites who had cloaked the nation with “political dishonesty” and “media dishonesty,” which have “linked together.”
“The political and media elites are lying to us,” LaPierre said. “You know they are.”
The NRA leader went on to rail against politicians, but his anger was especially intense when discussing the media. “Rather than expose government dishonesty and scandal like they used to,” LaPierre complained, “the media elites whitewash it all.”
“The media’s intentional corruption of the truth is an abomination,” he charged, as the crowd began to cheer, “and NRA members will never — and I mean never — submit or surrender to the national media.”
