On March 6th NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre ascended the podium to talk of how eulogies for the NRA had been prematurely penned by deceptive “media elites” and the media’s “intentional corruption of the truth is an abomination.”
According to Politico, LaPierre cited numerous Obama scandals to which the nation’s media and political class have turned a blind eye. These included, but were not limited to, “the IRS scandal, government surveillance, Obamacare, [and] Benghazi.”
Yet, the media and political elites had time to deceive when it came to the NRA:
Rather than expose government scandal and abuse like they used to, the media elites whitewash it all. ‘Move on,’ they tell us. ‘There’s nothing left to see here.’
One of America’s greatest threats is a national news media that fails to provide a level playing field for the truth. Now it’s all entertainment, ratings, personal celebrity, the next sensational story, and the.. deliberate spinning and purposeful use of words and language, truth be damned, to advance their own agenda.
…They’ve never been honest about the NRA, they hate us, just for saying out loud and sticking up for what we believe, as if we have no right. So they try to ridicule us into oblivion or shame us into submission, but their moral indignation, it should be directed into their makeup mirrors. The media’s intentional corruption of the truth is an abomination. And NRA members will never, and I mean never, submit or surrender to the national media.
