Evidently, the NRA needs to let people know who their enemies are.
Paranoid NRA Releases Enemy List – Are YOU On It?
McAllister / Addicting Info
Enemy lists…They go back as far as politics have been a part of our culture. Nixon, Joseph McCarthy, Pol Pot, Stalin, Lenin, Hitler, Saddam Hussein, and Generalissimo Francisco Franco, who is, we believe, still dead…
The actual list is almost hilarious: The AARP, it begins. The AFL-CIO. And so on and so forth in an eructation of paranoia so intense that one would prefer that whoever came up with this loopy and loony list were NOT gun owners, proud or not.
Consider this “enemy” of the NRA: “Nora Ephron – Director” [Right between Missy Eliot and Gloria Estefan]
I guess Nora is attacking the NRA from beyond the grave, since she died in mid-2012.
As is: “Andy Williams – Singer”
Make war, not love. Oh wait. Too late.
Or the entire surviving Zappa family (one presumes that Frank would be opposing the NRA in an afterlife, were there an afterlife to oppose the NRA in):
Ahmet Zappa -Actor
Diva Zappa -Actress
Dweezil Zappa – Musician
Gail Zappa – [sic]
Moon Zappa -Actress
Dead Frank Zappa did not, like dead Andy Williams,
make the list, but his entire living family did.
Or “Ed Koch – Former Politician,” who died last night, just before he could learn the awful news that the NRA considers him an enemy.
And here’s the scary portion to journalists:
The following journalists actively
editorialize in favor of gun control laws:
Steve Benson – Cartoonist
Tony Auth – Cartoonist
Jim Borgman – Cartoonist
Jimmy Breslin – Columnist
Stuart Carlson – Cartoonist
Marie Cocco – Columnist
E.J. Dionne Jr. – Columnist
And don’t forget those wimpy pro football and baseball teams (from Missouri, that is):
danged gun enemies!
Kansas City Chiefs
One Arrowhead Drive
Kansas City, MO 64129
Pro Football Team
Kansas City Royals
David Glass, CEO
P.O. Box 419969
Kansas City, MO 64141
Pro Baseball Team
St. Louis Rams
One Rams Way
Earth City, MO 63045
Pro Football Team
Or Sean Connery, that notorious wussy and peacenik.
And so on and so forth. Nothing like a gun organization run by crazies putting out an enemies list.
NRA Jesus agrees
Nothing problematic about that.
