Unfortunately, the left has made a machine that is very good at intimidating companies, most of whom are loathe negative attention. They are now turning it against the NRA:
Supporters of tighter restrictions on guns are deploying a new tactic: pressing companies such asÂ Wyndham Worldwide Corp. (WYN)Â andÂ Hertz Global Holdings Inc. (HTZ)Â to stop giving discounts to members of the National Rifle Association.
Web-based organizations with ties to Moveon.org, an advocacy group that backed President Barack Obamaâ€™s re-election, want to shrink the NRAâ€™s membership by eliminating an incentive to join — cheaper hotel rooms and car rentals.
I don’t know any people who are members of NRA for the discounts. We’re not the AARP. They are nice to haves, but it won’t substantially weaken the NRA. Nonetheless, the Soros funded Obama sycophants at MoveOn.org are still being pricks. This one is a particular middle finger extended right in our faces:
Cigna Corp. (CI), based in Bloomfield, Connecticut, also was asked to stop underwriting the NRAâ€™s accidental death and dismemberment insurance policy for members.
They want to require insurance for gun owners, but then they are going to go after people who actually insure us? Do you need any more evidence that the motivation for all this is simply a hatred of gun owners?
We should probably add a little pressure of our own.
