On Friday's All In show, with the words "The Sickness" displayed on screen behind him, MSNBC host Chris Hayes began the show with a commentary in which he tagged the NRA as a "far-right fringe organization" that "might be spelling their own demise" by celebrating the defeat of the universal background check proposal. Hayes:
While they did win the short-term victory with the background check bill, that vote could ultimately prove to be the NRA's undoing. Because, in a lot of ways, it's a classic wedge-issue vote, in that it separated the NRA from mainstream gun owners. And if they lean into that vote, as they appear to be doing, and mistake it for a victory, they might be spelling their own demise because Americans will come more and more to see them for what they are, which is a right-wing fringe organization.
Early on in the segment, after complaining that the NRA successfully worked to defeat the gun control deal after helping to negotiate it, Hayes found the pro-gun group's actions "admittedly, a semi-impressive -- if kind of gross and unseemly -- party trick on the part of the NRA. But it's a trick they're incredibly proud of today."
A bit later, he asserted:
People are starting to recognize that the NRA is not a nonpartisan organization, it is a creature of the American political right. It is interested in victories by the American political right. It grows out of the culture of the American political right. It has increasingly come to embrace the fringe margins of the American political right.
I mean, if you want tangible evidence of that, just look at who's speaking at tonight's conference. Rick Perry, Ted Cruz, John Bolton -- John Bolton, seriously....

I am watching this miserable faggot communist now, in a setting where the TV is on MSNBC and I can’t change it. I just watched O Donnell too. This channel is fkn unwatchable. There isn’t a triple digit IQ cume between all of their hosts.
Wishful thinking, Chrissie.
Which is why they just picked up another half million members, ya leftist LSM moron...
How are those ratings, Chris?
they’ve changed their venue to comedy...
I think you just boosted their ratings by 25%.
Chris Hayes? Wasn’t there a Chris Hayes on the Food Channel preaching against those evil carnivorous bipeds?
How many viewers of PMSNBC?
Did these people just land here from Andromeda?
More psychological projection by the Left!
I’ve no idea where they are from. Being force to listen tonight, i’m sure my blood pressure is way up. They are infantile, stupid, vapid, empty, and think they’re so damned smart. It’s nauseating. None of them would know reality if it bit them on their liberal ass...
And that just describes the craft service folks!
NRA wins major victory... spells demise?
MSLSD, America’s finest cartel of pretend journalists.
When the chattering leftist talk about the “self-destruction” or “demise” of a conservative group, it usually means that group is going strong.
“How many viewers of PMSNBC?”
Fortunately for me, I can not get PMSNBC or The Commie News Network.
I do, however, get FOX news and Aljazera.
