NRA Mocks Kim Kardashian - YouTube

The Huffington Post is the entry point for a series of videos which constitute an attack on the NRA:

The trail of posts is difficult to follow because the series of links from one article to the next are so convoluted that you really need to WANT to follow the subtle attack on the Second Amendment rights, as supported by the National Rifle Association, before you find yourself at the most nefarious attacks on the NRA.

I think you need to see the video to get the points which were actually made.

I would prefer to present a chart of the links,  but frankly I'm too old and the trail from the original Huffington Post) is too complex to be easy to define.  Perhaps it would be best to start with the original article (see link above) and see where the various embedded links take you.

The political positions of the National Rifle Association were not specifically presented during this sequence..

The Huffington Post viewpoint, however, was prominently presented.  Without a timely response from the NRA.

(The philosophy of the NRA, incidentally, is this:

The National Rifle Association of America (NRA) is an American nonprofit organization which advocates for gun rights. Founded in 1871, the group has informed its members about firearm-related bills since 1934, and it has directly lobbied for and against legislation since 1975. It is also the oldest continuously operating civil rights organization in the United States.
Founded to advance rifle marksmanship, the modern NRA continues to teach firearm competency and safety. It instructs civilians and law enforcement, youths and adults, in various programs. The organization also publishes several magazines and sponsors competitive marksmanship events.
 Membership surpassed 5 million in May 2013,
Observers and lawmakers see the NRA as one of the top three most influential lobbying groups in Washington.  Over its history the organization has influenced legislation, participated in or initiated lawsuits, and endorsed or opposed various candidates.

Compare that with this video:

NRA Mocks Kim Kardashian - YouTube:

Published on Oct 4, 2016:
 The NRA wants to make a political point to Kim Kardashian, when she was just the victim of armed robbery. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. ( deleted links; go to the video
“The National Rifle Association decided it was appropriate to needle Kim Kardashian West about her position on gun control after the reality TV star was robbed at gunpoint in Paris. Kardashian West was robbed early Monday morning by armed thieves dressed as police officers. Her representatives said she was “badly shaken but physically unharmed” during the incident, which took place at a private apartment she was staying at during Paris Fashion Week. As many public figures offered support for the celebrity on Monday morning, the NRA instead seized the chance to argue against the efficacy of background checks.”Read more here:Hosts: Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian Cast: Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian
actually, this plethora of links is not necessary.  Going back to THE ORIGINAL VIDEO you will find sufficient comments to describe the commentators' dislike of the NRA:


The NRA is The Bad Guy ...

... not the egotistical celebrity who publicized that she traveled with millions of dollars of jewelry and made a target of herself:

... not the criminals who assaulted her, terrorized her, gagged her, and stole her millions of ... (yadda yadda yadda) ...
... and certainly not the very pricey security dudes who were curiously absent when she really needed them.

No .. according to the EuroCentrals (who were responsible for her security) .. it was the National Rifle Association of America  who is The Bad Guy.

( Need we point out that the NRA is located on a different continent from which the robbery was perpetrated?) ... who is responsible for this heinous action upon a do-nothing celebrity who can restore her jewel box in the next month?  Could it be .. herself???)

And the NRA is currently being chided for asking if the thieves passed a background check.

Funny, when Liberals make a joke, everybody 'gets it';  but when a conservative organization makes a joke, every liberal in the world laughs at the NRA, not at the joke.

Have liberals no sense of humor?

Sorry ... I got so wrapped up in the story, I forgot that Liberals have no sense of humor for a joke which is not pointed at a Conservative!
