The NRA Has Finally Lost Me

Posted by dumpendebat

Ted Nugent’s comments at the NRA event in St Louis last weekend were the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back for me, readers. I will not be renewing my NRA membership this year. My conscience will not allow me to continue to lend my financial support to an organization that will give Ted Nugent money — more money than most American families make in a year — to go up on stage and deliver nasty, semi-coherent, ugly rants that border on hate speech.

At this year’s convention Nugent accused President Obama of having a “vile, evil America-hating administration” that is “wiping its ass with the Constitution” while telling the crowd that “We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November.” Nugent also claimed that “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”

I still support the Second Amendment; I am a handgun owner; I feel strongly that gun ownership is one of our basic fundamental rights as citizens of the United States of America.

But I will no longer be part of an organization that subsidizes and encourages the likes of Ted Nugent, whose nasty, stupid, hate-filled rhetoric is helping to poison what’s left of our political discourse. Of course he has the right to express his opinions, but I don’t have to help him get paid to do so.
