Someone sent me a link to a ridiculous anti-gun, anti-NRA article a couple days ago. It appeared on “Freakout Nation” and it was attempting to say that the NRA did not care about the thousands of people killed on 9/11 because they were happy that a gun had survived. The entire “article” was childish at best, and while I shared it on my FB page with a few comments, it was not even worthy of blog post response. The following is what I said when I shared it on FB:
If you have the burning desire to read some really stupid anti-gun drivel, this might do it for you.
Just to give you an idea of where this is going, when the writer opens their piece with a sentence that is 100% factually incorrect, it gives you an idea of what to expect.
For example: “The National Rifle Association is using the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks to honor a gun that survived the bombings.”
Hey dipshit, it was not a bombing. The only people who think it was a bombing are the nutjobs who think “9-11 was an inside job.”
It gets even better once you get to the comments. The article is being shredded by commenters and the page moderators are spewing some of the most asinine crap you have ever seen.
You might note my final statement there. That comment about the moderators brings me here to the blog today. As I read through the comments, one of their moderators in particular, “tiredoftea” kept spouting off ridiculous nonsense. I took it upon myself to reply to one of their comments. The following screen shots capture the “conversation” as it happened.
You may notice that I referred to this person discounting LawOfficer.com as being run by the NRA. Another person posted a comment linking to an article there, and “tiredoftea” had replied with that comment.
So, to sum up the argument presented by this website admin;
“La la la la la la, I can’t hear you. You’re stupid, I’m smart. I’m rubber, you’re glue…”
Update: Because I needed another comment by this person to prove my point, they delivered this perfect example.
This conversation (I use that term loosely) reminds me of a certain meme, but I’m not sure if I can put my finger on it… Ah yes, this one.
