MSNBC's Hayes: 'Far-Right Fringe' NRA 'Might Be Spelling Their Own Demise'
Newsbusters ^ | May 6. 2013 | Brad Wilmouth

Posted on 05/06/2013 8:28:50 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

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.

He added:

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.

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...

When the chattering leftist talk about the “self-destruction” or “demise” of a conservative group, it usually means that group is going strong.

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..

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.

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.

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.

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.

Pity the poor network of MSNBC.

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!

hahahahah

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.

They are laying the ground work for a declaration that the NRA is a hate group. This will allow them to seize its assets and brand its members.
