Looking for a Weekend Activity? Here’s Where You Can Send Some Love Notes

February 23, 2018 By: El Jefe Category: Fun With Guns

As we are all acutely aware, the NRA came out with guns blazing today (no pun intended) blaming gun violence on everything but guns.  Wayne LaPierre, chief propagandist, blamed everyone from Nancy Pelosi to Hollywood stars for mass shooters killing hundreds of people with the AR-15, the Official Rifle of Angry White Men.

With all this noise, I believe you might be a bit discourage and feeling helpless.  Well, you’re not.  Remember how we virtually put Rush Limbaugh out of business by shaming his sponsors into dropping out?  You can use that same tactic again, this time against the NRA’s business partners who provide all kinds of discounts to the mouth breathers who are members.  Here’s a handy list to help get you started:

  • Hertz
  • Avis and Budget
  • Lifeline Screening – a preventative health testing company
  • Symatec – Norton anti virus software
  • Allied Van Lines
  • North American Van Lines
  • Simplisafe – home security
  • Starkey Hearing Technologies
  • Manage UrID – personal privacy
  • Life Insurance Central
  • Medical Concierge Network – doctor care
  • eHealth – insurance
  • Teladoc – telemedicine service, whatever that is
  • FedEx
  • LifeLock
  • Wild Apricot – whatever that is
  • First National Bank of Omaha – issue(d) the official credit card of the NRA.  As soon as Think Progress published their name, the bank dumped the card.  One down.
  • Enterprise, National, and Alamo – the conglomerate who owns these three major brands dropped the NRA today.  Two down.

Keep those cards and letters going out, kids, the evil cyclops is starting to stagger.

 

“We Call B.S.”

February 19, 2018 By: El Jefe Category: Fun With Guns

“The people in the government who were voted into power are lying to us. And us kids seem to be the only ones who notice and are prepared to call B.S.

“Companies, trying to make caricatures of the teen-agers nowadays, saying that all we are are self-involved and trend-obsessed and they hush us into submissions when our message doesn’t reach the ears of the nation, we are prepared to call B.S.

“Politicians who sit in their gilded House and Senate seats funded by the N.R.A., telling us nothing could ever be done to prevent this: we call B.S.

“They say that tougher gun laws do not prevent gun violence: we call B.S.”

“They say a good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun: we call B.S.

“They say guns are just tools, like knives, and are as dangerous as cars: we call B.S.

“They say that no laws would have been able to prevent the hundreds of senseless tragedies that occur: we call B.S.

“That us kids don’t know what we’re talking about, that we’re too young to understand how the government works.” The crowd was now in a frenzy of anger and sadness, the people around me tearing up as they yelled, “We call B.S.”

And then, in unison, the people gathered began to chant, “Vote them out, vote them out, vote them out.”

Hey, DC Politicians – The Kids are Coming for You

February 18, 2018 By: El Jefe Category: Fun With Guns

Saturday, March 24, Washington DC.  This will be the scene of the March for Our Lives, and organization started by the high school kids who survived the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last Wednesday in Parkland Florida.  Inaction by craven politicians like John Cornyn, Ted Cruz, and many others have put our children’s lives at risk by allowing easy access to weapons of war by criminals and the mentally unstable.  If you doubt the intensity of this effort, I encourage you to watch this.

 

School Shooter a White Supremacist?

February 17, 2018 By: El Jefe Category: Fun With Guns

On Thursday, a known leader of a white nationalist group in Florida announced to an Anti-Defamation League researcher that the Parkland shooter was a member of his group, Republic of Florida.  The news spread quickly, including me on these pages.  Yesterday, the Broward County sheriff said that they have found no evidence of his involvement in the group.  Apparently, the leader of ROP is known for wanting attention and walked back his declaration the day after.

The reaction was as you would expect – right wingers came out of the woodwork, including here, accusing the press (and me) of spreading false narratives about shooters and how inept (or evil) we are.  And then, the shooter’s digital profile began emerging…”I hate Jews, Ni**ers, Immigrants,” he posted on a YouTube thread call “Murica”.  He was obsessed with race, violence, guns, and school shootings. His Instagram feed was full of racist and hateful posts.  On another YouTube thread, he posted, “I’m going to become a professional school shooter.”  This is the comment that was reported to the FBI, which it ignored.  Here’s a nice pic on his Instagram feed wearing his Trump campaign hat.

So, is the shooter a white supremacist? Certainly.  Was he a member of the ROF? We don’t know that yet.

 

Florida Shooter is a White Supremacist

February 15, 2018 By: El Jefe Category: Fun With Guns

A leader of a white nationalist group, Republic of Florida, has admitted that the Florida high school shooter, who will remain unnamed on this page, is a member and has trained with them. At what point are we going to stop chasing Muslim boogey men and building walls against brown people coming from Mexico, and focus on the ACTUAL threat of homegrown violent white supremacists and gun nuts?
