It’s that time of year. The end of February marks Spring when a young man’s fancy turns to love. And when shady lobbyists speak openly to their right-wing allies.
Yep, the National Rifle Association has descended on the Conservative Political Action Conference, the annual rally where all the worst Republicans can get together and talk about hating immigrants and the poor without fear of being disagreed with.
Loesch also went after the FBI, blaming them for “dropping the ball” on every mass shooting. Apparently she thinks the FBI are like car alarms that are just always there.
Basically, she’s just ready to blame anything or anyone but guns for mass shootings.
Her boss, NRA executive vice president and CEO Wayne LaPierre made a surprise drop-in where he went even further, saying Democrats, whom he called secret socialists, and the media wanted to “exploit tragedy for political gain”:
“They want to sweep right under the carpet the failure of school security, the failure of family, the failure of America’s mental health system, and even the unbelievable failure of the FBI.”
There it is again. They are going all-in against the FBI.
It’s almost as if they’re in an adversarial position because the FBI is investigating whether their organization funneled Russian funds to help the Trump campaign.
