Revealed: Secret Tapes Bust NRA Leaders Calling Their Members 'Hillbillies' And 'Fruitcakes'

Mod: The contempt the elite right feels for those sad fools who give them their money is profound.

Secret Tapes Bust NRA Leaders Calling Their Members Hillbillies And Fruitcakes (PoliticusUSA link): Secret tapes of NRA leaders meeting after the Columbine shooting caught them referring to their members as hillbillies and fruitcakes. NPR got the tapes: 

In addition to mapping out their national strategy, NRA leaders can also be heard describing the organization’s more activist members in surprisingly harsh terms, deriding them as “hillbillies” and “fruitcakes” who might go off-script after Columbine and embarrass them ... 

And they dismiss conservative politicians and gun industry representatives as largely inconsequential players, saying they will do whatever the NRA proposes. Members of Congress, one participant says, have asked the NRA to “secretly provide them with talking points.”

The release of the tapes could not have come at a worse time for the gun manufacturer lobby. They are currently being sued in federal court for a series of illegal campaign contributions made to Republicans Sen. Josh Hawley and Donald Trump. 

The NRA’s power has not diminished within the Republican Party. The way that the leadership described elected Republicans after Columbine remains true today. 

The NRA has such a stranglehold on Republicans that neither the Sandy Hook nor Parkland school shootings moved them to lift their blockage of gun reform legislation.

The NRA has nothing but contempt for its members. Those “hillbillies” are the only reason that they have any power at all.

The National Rifle Association was so cozy with Trump because they are two peas sharing the same pod. They hate and mock their supporters, who they see as idiot hick rubes who are being played for their benefit.

    1. It looks like this was a meeting where the leadership was in agreement. You also are left with the feeling that this was familiar material for all attending.

    2. Other than the tobacco industry, I can’t think of any commercial enterprise that hates its own user base more than the GOP.

  2. Strange, I thought the "worst thing to happen" was sending your kids to school only to have them gunned down. Maybe the NRA and I have different tastes in what "the worst" things are.

    1. These money hungry swine have been duping gun owners and the hunting community for years. Hopefully it will catch up to them and help relinquish the NRA's hold on the republican party. It's all about the money.

  3. Are “wackos,” “hillbillies” and “idiots” anything like “deplorables”? Asking for a friend.

  4. This is why Twitter should be brought down, since they played an equal share in the deaths and riot on Jan 06, 2021.
    Charged with murder and riots plus fines, $250 billion dollars sounds fine to me.
    Paul Gosar should be arrested and charged, along with being removed from his seat in congress.
    Rep. Paul Gosar shared an anime video of himself killing AOC. This was her response.

    Critics are slamming Republican Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona for sharing an altered anime video in which he kills Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and swings swords at President Biden.

    Gosar shared the video from both his personal and professional Twitter accounts Sunday, writing, "Any anime fans out there?" in the latter. Twitter has not removed the tweets but instead hid them from view, with users required to click on a label in order to see it.

    "This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about hateful conduct," reads the label. "However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public's interest for the Tweet to remain accessible.

    1. Agreed. Twitter cannot police itself. Fine Twitter heavily. Remove the CEO who ignored warnings on Jan 5 that were
      sent of Jan 6 by Prince Harry. Twitter CEO loves the Power of Fascism to encourage violence. He is a traitor.

  5. Judge Tells Trump He Is Not President While Denying Request To Hide 1/6 Documents

    Trump lost his bid to hide documents from the 1/6 Committee as the judge told him that he is not the president and he doesn’t have executive privilege.

    The crushing blow came when the judge told Trump that he lost and is not the president, “Plaintiff does not acknowledge the deference owed to the incumbent President’s judgment. His position that he may override the express will of the executive branch appears to be premised on the notion that his executive power “exists in perpetuity.”. But Presidents are not kings, and Plaintiff is not President. He retains the right to assert that his records are privileged, but the incumbent President “is not constitutionally obliged to honor” that assertion.

    Donald couldn't have been happy to hear that.

    1. That was too much information for Trump to take in at one time. I'm sure he didn't understand the response but got briefed afterward when he was told "no, you didn't get what you want". That's about his highest level of understanding.

    2. Donald Trump's attempts to use "executive privilege" to stop White House records from being turned over to the January 6 committee have failed because having hordes of fruitcakes who call you "my president" isn't the same as actually being president.

  6. When you're stupid, your dead.
    'Trump counties' had over 3 times more COVID deaths than 'Biden counties' in October, according to a new report.

    The gap, according to the Times, accelerated at its fastest rate yet in October, coming out to 25 COVID deaths per 100,000 residents in counties where Trump won more than 60% of the vote, versus 7.8 deaths per 100k in counties where Biden did the same.

    A late October poll by the Kaiser Family Foundation's COVID-19 Vaccine Monitor found that 39% of Republican adults remain unvaccinated, while just 10% of Democratic adults said the same thing.

  8. America's prices are surging more than they have in 30 years.

    There's no end in sight for higher prices. US consumer price inflation surged higher again in October, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Wednesday.
    Over the past 12 months, prices climbed 6.2% -- the biggest increase since November 1990.
    Stripping out food and energy prices, which tend to be more volatile, the index rose 4.6% over the same period, the biggest jump since August 1991.
    The overall price index rose 0.9% in October alone, adjusted for seasonal swings, significantly more than the 0.6% economists had predicted, and overshadowing the somewhat more tepid 0.4% increase from September.
    Last month's price jumps came on the back of increases in multiple categories, including energy, shelter, food and cars.

  13. This is the fall back, for Glendora, Ca. city council, members and Bob Kuhn.

    All those projects Housing that requires water, this was the endless water supplier that was to feed them all.

    Southern California water supplier declares drought emergency, urges conservation.
    In July, Newsom called on residents statewide to cut their water use by 15% below last year’s levels to help alleviate drought conditions. But state figures showed that by August, residents had only reduced use by about 5%.

    This is true in Glendora, Ca. since they are lazy and only listen to the city council money donors who do not give a damn about conserving water.
