Watch: NRA Attacks MSNBC’s ‘Pathetic, Sorry Ass Far-Left’ Joy Reid

Published

on

The NRA is now going after Joy Reid. In a disturbing four-minute diatribe NRA TV’s Dan Bongino Monday night called the MSNBC host a “pathetic, sorry ass far-left” person and used a thinly-veiled analogy that appeared to suggest she should die for something that matters.

“When pathetic, sorry ass far-left organizations and people like Joy Reid attack us ruthlessly with the most horrific, disgusting tweets and then the minute you say something back, automatically she is gonna jump right into the identity politics black hole,” Bongino said in a video (below) posted to Twitter by the NRA.

“This is snowflake victim culture,” Bongino, a three-time losing GOP candidate, says in the NRA TV video. “This is what they do: they attack ruthlessly,” he said, referring to “a series of ridiculous, absurd, outrageous Joy Reid tweets ruthlessly attacking the NRA and its members.”

Bongino interrupted himself to declare, “the NRA is not about guns. It’s about rights – OK? There’s a difference.”

He goes on to say, “Joy, get lost. You live on the ideological side of the fence where a guy showed up at a baseball field and mowed down a lot of Republicans, OK?” He insisted that he wasn’t blaming her for that attack.

After crying about Reid’s “ruthless” tweets Bongino tells his viewers, “I despise weakness. I do. I despise it in any form: physical, emotional, mental.”

Bongino then told Reid she needs “to be part of the Spartan culture,” and embrace their motto: “With it or on it.” Bongino said that means, “You come back from war with your shield or on it.”

Coming back on your shield means “you died for something that mattered,” Bongino explained, talking directly to Reid.

“You know, be a little more ‘Spartan,’ Joy. Stop being such a victim all the time.  Nobody’s inciting violence – nobody’s even insinuating that anyone else should incite violence,” Bongino claimed.

(NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch has been accused of inciting violence – or coming close to calling for violence – in her disturbing NRA videos.)

Neo-Nazi Shared Plot With Followers to Use Snipers to Bring America ‘To Its Knees’: Report

Published

on

A former Marine who encouraged fellow neo-Nazi’s to move to Maine and make a “white future” for themselves by creating a white ethnostate, also shared a video with his followers with a proposal to use snipers to bring America “to its knees,” Vice News is reporting.

According to the Vice report, the plan by Chris Pohlhaus, 34, involved shooters targeting the nation’s truck drivers in the hope that it would create economic chaos.

According to Vice’s Ben Makuch, the ex-military man sat before a Confederate flag in his video and detailed his plan.

Writing that Pohlhaus described his proposal as one that could “easily disrupt the United States’ supply chain,” Makuch quoted the self-proclaimed Neo-Nazi telling his fans, “It’s easy to stop trucks. You don’t need anybody; you barely need anyone. Twenty five dudes. Twenty five dudes trained with a (rifle),” before adding, “Each one of those guys shoots and moves and hides, shoots two truckers a day. That’s 50 truckers (shot) every day.”

According to the report, “Pohlhaus denied telling followers to shoot truckers and said the full context of the video was discussing historical hypotheticals involving whether or not epic figures like Ghengis Khan or Alexander the Great could conquer the modern world. He said the trucker analogy was meant to show that it’s easy to attack a society he considers on the brink of demise.”

In a text message to Vice, Pohlhaus wrote, “This system is incredibly fragile and what I did was show a way 25 men could bring it completely to its knees. And I am right, as always. They could,” before warning, “It is only a matter of time before something happens and this fragile little world falls apart. You need to come to terms with this reality and prepare for the absolute hell that is coming for us.”

GOP Congressman: FBI ‘Participated’ in Insurrection to ‘Entrap’ Harmless Protestors and ‘Frame the MAGA Movement’

Published

on

U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) is demanding the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Dept. of Justice tell Congress what they know about their own alleged “participation” in Donald Trump’s January 6 insurrection, which led to at least seven deaths. Gohmert falsely claims the attack on the U.S. Capitol – which in reality was an attempted coup designed to overturn a free and fair election – was instead a “monumental entrapment scheme used as a pretext to imprison otherwise harmless protestors” and used to “frame the entire MAGA movement as potential domestic terrorists.”

News organization The Recount calls Gohmert’s assertions “a bullshit baseless conspiracy theory.”

The Texas Republican congressman, explained on Thursday on the floor of the House that his “friend,” Fox News white supremacist host Tucker Carlson “covered this last night,” called the conspiracy theory “really disturbing… because we don’t like to see government agents stirring up trouble or find that there are criminal acts that would not likely have occurred had not the federal government been participating.”

Having no evidence that January 6 was an “inside job,” which is what Gohmert is asserting, he goes on to make up possible scenarios, again, without any basis in fact.

“Whether they were actual agents, or an undercover agents, or informants that were working for the federal government. But this is scary stuff this is, This is kind of third world stuff, this is not only third world stuff but this is like Putin-like kind of activity. So, if there were federal agents that were involved on January 6, we really need to know what the FBI knew and when they knew it, and not only that, we need to know how much participation did any of our federal friends either at DOJ, FBI, or any of the Intel Community, what kind of role were they playing?”

It’s almost like he is demanding Speaker Pelosi form a Special Committee to investigate the January 6 insurrection.

Jerry Falwell Jr.: I Had No Responsibility to Tell Liberty University About My Personal Life

Published

on

Jerry Falwell, Jr. is asking  a court to dismiss a multi-million dollar lawsuit filed against him by his former employer, Liberty University, the Christian conservative evangelical college founded by his father.

The suit, worth more than $40 million, is merely a tool to embarrass and publicly shame him, Falwell says. He claims university officials are using it as a vehicle to keep his affairs in the public eye.

The lawsuit, Falwell claims, according to the Lynchburg News & Advance, focuses “in large part on an affair between Falwell’s wife, Becki, and a young man named Giancarlo Granda that Jerry Falwell Jr. has made public statements about.”

Granda has repeatedly claimed that not only did Falwell know about his wife’s affair with Granda, often described in the  media as their “pool boy,” Falwell Jr. participated in some of the liaisons, as a voyeur.

Falwell Jr. “has claimed Granda — once a pool boy, business partner and friend to the family — had extorted the couple, which Granda has denied.”

Liberty University “honed in on those claims in its lawsuit, stating Falwell breached his fiduciary duty to the school by not disclosing ‘Granda’s extortive threats’ while negotiating a 2019 employment agreement that included a $1.5 million raise and a $2.5 million severance package. Beyond that, it alleges Falwell damaged the school’s reputation and donor base through a series of ‘indiscretions’ in recent years, along with his ‘personal impairment by alcohol.'”

Falwell in his court filing says the “rehashing of these events and protected defamation of Falwell through litigation serves one mission — ruining Falwell’s reputation through mischaracterization of events and public shaming through out-of-context pictures filed in a public complaint.”

His “response to the lawsuit states he had no duty to tell the university about private matters and the university failed to prove legal elements of the business conspiracy it alleged against him.”
