Skip to comments.MSNBC's Hayes: 'Far-Right Fringe' NRA 'Might Be Spelling Their Own Demise'

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 don’t think the NRA will cause the rights demise, BUT obama, clinton and BenghaziGate will hopefully cause theirs.
No Gosnell or Benghazi, just NRA all the time. Mindless drones..
The NRA has a record 5 million members.
In their moonbat lefty delusions is the NRA facing their “demise.”
You poor soul . are you in one of their new Political Reeducation Camps? If you want as triple digit from msnbc hosts, stay there another couple days and add up all the hosts’ IQ’s.
...three days won’t be enough!
MSM agitprop, period. Like Pravda was to the politburo. Pure BS.
They have trotted out a couple of alleged gunowners who are willing to trash the NRA for 15 minutes of infamy on a network nobody watches. One claimed to own a gun shop. I wish I had gotten his name so I could tell him he just bought a million dollars’ worth of bad publicity. The other was some dope who wrote a book he wanted to sell.
I thought partisan was supposed to mean aligned to one of the political parties. I didn’t think partisan meant being aligned with those who have a consistent view of the world.
NRA Surges to Record 5 Million Members (May 4, 2013)
Well then its hopeless. You will go stark ravinmad watcing msnbc for more than 3 days. You’ll be reduced to their level and have to count on yer toes. Max count then will be about 10, no way to reach 100.
We’ve always been at war with Eastasia.
Brain defective nonsense; the NRA will be celebrating ever-increasing membership when this moron has long since retired and sits around the nursing home gumming his porridge and wetting himself.
Chris Hayes and his ilk are so far to the left that they cannot even see the center, common sense, or the will of the people.
As is typical of the leftists, they accuse others of their own failings.
tyrannis delenda est
Leftists are only able to think in clichés.
Proud to say that I have “the sickness”.
If trouble ever finds me, I will be able to take care of myself. Chris Hayes apparently prefers to fight back from a fetal position.
They know they have a (non)ratings problem. All the cool young liberals watch Jon Stewart and nobody to the right of John McCain can stand their single viewpoint leftist analysis.
So they figure the gruff union persona of Ed Schultz is turning off viewers and they put in this nonthreatening metrosexual Chris Hayes, and their viewership gets even worse!
This talking point is everywhere so it must have been sent out by the Democratic Party.
NRA membership surges to 5 million
Huh? The way things are going, the NRA is more likely to end up being that 'third political party' everybody keeps thinking is going to happen because of the GOPe spineless RINOs that infest & are ruining the current Repub party ... and I'm only half joking here.
