CSGV Latest Pathetic Attack

CSGV’s latest message seems to be that when it comes to gun scandals, at least four out of NRA’s 76 elected board members have some experience backing anti-communist guerrillas in Cold War proxy conflicts, some of which didn’t have the nicest of bedfellows. Shocking, I know, that our government engaged in lot of unpleasantness to rid the world of Soviet communism, resulting in a lot of folks with dirty hands. But what exactly is the greater strategy at work in Fast and Furious? At best, and this is still a dubious claim, there’s some elaborate cloak and dagger affair in play to prop up the Sinaloa Cartel. If that’s the case, I’d really like to know how that helps the situation in Mexico. At worst, Fast and Furious was meant to get more guns into Mexico to make the case for more gun control, and bigger budgets at the Department of Justice.

I don’t think four NRA Board members can be construed to represent an endorsement by NRA as a whole of their past activities. Whether Horwitz likes it or not, Ollie North is a hero to many Americans, and enough NRA members, to get him the votes he needs to be on the Board. If you think this article is utter fail, this web site on NRA Board members should give you a better idea of just how sad, pathetic, and bitter the folks at CSGV are. But I do have to thank them. Their little web site provided at least fifteen minutes of amusement for me in realizing just how out of touch they are with ordinary Americans, in terms of what they find to be “controversial.”

I think it’s also quite telling that, rather than trying to get to the bottom of F&F, CSGV is instead of spending it’s time looking for ways to smear NRA. That should tell you just how much of a masquerade the whole gun violence thing is. The difference between NRA and CSGV is NRA is still being true to it’s mission. CSGV has shown they care more about hurting NRA than they care about gun violence.

    Well when there isn’t the blood in the streets and the old west shootouts, nor is there evidence that their “Crime Prevention” laws ever prevented or reduced crime, and their talking points are awash in made-up metrics like “Gun Death” and “Developed Nations Not at War”…all they have left is personal attacks and seething hatred.

    “Shocking, I know, that our government engaged in lot of unpleasantness to rid the world of Soviet communism, resulting in a lot of folks with dirty hands. ”

    I must question the wisdom of CSVG – why would you demand that the world’s largest arms dealer, and one that has a long history of selling or even giving away arms to the nastiest people in the world, restrict or ban firearms?

    Only 4 out of 76 NRA board members have experience backing anti-communist guerillas in Cold War proxy conflicts? We’re going to have to nominate people with better resumes. There’s got to be plenty of people around who’ve helped send a commie or two to wherever it is that commies go when they depart the earth. The Great Gulag in the Sky, maybe? It would rankle the right people. Nice to see that it’s already doing so.
    Horwitz (an aptly named fellow) is rationalizing his support for communism with his resentment of those who helped oppose it. Usually, commies are sneakier than that. Thanks for outing yourself, Josh.

    “…board members have some experience backing anti-communist guerrillas in Cold War proxy conflicts…”

    They’re probably just mad because less commies = less Brady supporters.

    Looked over the CSGV website, and is it just me, or is Ted Nugent mellowing out over the years? What those dilholes offered up as inflammatory rhetoric seems pretty mainstream to me.

  6. Sebastian says:

    The whole website is pretty hysterical. You can take either context of that word, and it works. The truth is that most of the NRA Board are pretty boring, ordinary people. But they have to gin up something to justify the large grants they get from Joyce, I suppose.

    But it’s telling just how out of touch people like Everitt and Horwitz are, that they don’t know that although many of the positions they expose on their little hate site there are mainstream opinions, even if they might be things we argue over politically.

    But the target audience for CSGV and more recently Brady aren’t mainstream individuals, but foaming at the mouth leftist whack jobs.
