I want to thank the anti-gun Parkland kids personally for encouraging me to renew my lapsed membership to the National Rifle Association.
My new membership card came in the mail yesterday and I owe it all to you guys.
So thanks. Thanks for lighting a fire under my ass and getting me to do what I should have done in 2014 when my NRA membership expired.
Personally, I hope these Parkland kids never shut up.
It is not uncommon for people who love liberty to become complacent and soft. And getting a daily reminder that there are people in this country – heavily-funded people – who want to deprive us of our liberties is just the kick in the butt we needed.
Never stop Leftists from poking a slumbering giant. Instead, thank them.
We needed the wake-up call.
Any old how.
Two of the so-called “survivors” appeared on CBS News Monday to accuse the NRA of “basically threatening them.”
Now, allow me to translate “teen-speak” for you.
When teenagers use the adverb “basically” what they’re saying is this:
“Not really, but the truth isn’t dramatic enough.”
According to the Hill who reported this “basically” threat, the NRA has never publicly criticized (let alone threatened) the Parkland kids.
But nonetheless, the Parkland kids claim the NRA is “basically threatening them.”
From the Hill:
When asked if the NRA has reached out to the Parkland students in the month since they rallied to stop school shootings, Hogg said the way they’ve reached out “is basically threatening us.”
“They’ve been instigating things,” González added. “And then we reply, they shy away. Like they can dish it out, but they can’t take it.”
So, in other words, they haven’t threatened them at all. Instead, the NRA has taken the high ground by not getting into a childish tit-for-tat with a bunch of big-mouth children.
What kind of monsters are they?!!!
Now, you and I both know that if the NRA did fire back – so to speak – at these disrespectful little brats, these kids would be howling like wounded poodles and claiming to be victims.
So it isn’t shocking to me that not engaging these kids is still cause to accuse them of “basically threatening them.”
Nonetheless, the Hill felt the need to provide “evidence” of how the NRA is “basically threatening them.”
So they offered this tweet as “proof:”

This is a threat?
Now, call me crazy, but to me a threat is “Nice future career on CNN you got there, Wesley. Be a shame if something happened to it.”
And that, my friends, is why they use the word “basically.”
Their effort to turn the NRA into a monstrous boogeyman isn’t working.
Instead, hundreds of thousands of Americans are joining the NRA.
So these idiots play the Victim card and pretend that the NRA is “basically threatening them” when in fact they aren’t being threatened at all.
Which, when you stop and think about it, is hardly surprising.
As ignorant as these kids might be, they certainly are savvy about this hyper-media age.
They know the shortcut to fame is to portray yourself as a Victim.
Which is exactly why they billed themselves as “survivors” of a school shooting.
When in fact what they are, to borrow a term, is “basically” survivors – in the sense that they were nowhere near the shooting, but that truth isn’t dramatic enough.
Playing the Victim is the way lazy, talentless people gain celebrity. And what kid doesn’t want to be a celebrity?
So, no. It isn’t surprising to me that now they want to pretend that the meanie-meanie-jelly-beanie NRA is out to get them.
They’ve had a taste of celebrity and they will do anything to keep that gravy train running.
