Oliver North takes on the Stoneman Douglas kids

Knowing what we know about the NRA and about Oliver North, we knew it wasn’t going to take long for North to make a fool of himself after being elected NRA president. He didn’t disappoint. In a bizarre interview with the Moonie Times, North claimed the Stoneman Douglas kids were engaging in terrorism.

They call them activists. That’s what they’re calling themselves. They’re not activists — this is civil terrorism. This is the kind of thing that’s never been seen against a civil rights organization in America. You go back to the terrible days of Jim Crow and those kinds of things — even there you didn’t have this kind of thing. We didn’t have the cyberwar kind of thing that we’ve got today.

Oh noes! We can’t call out an organization that has the power to strike fear into the hearts of legislators with one phone call, and has derailed every common-sense attempt at gun reform. If we do so, we’re no different from al-Qaeda and ISIS!

As I note at RDTDaily, it didn’t take long for the kids to say, “Bring. It. On.” David Hogg commenced hostilities with a reminder that he and his friends know who North is—using the hashtag “#OnTheContra.”

Cameron Kasky joined in as well.

Apparently North wasn’t paying attention when these kids dunked on the NRA too many times to count this spring. Or when Laura Ingraham was forced to cry uncle for slagging Hogg.

So it looks like another right-winger is on the verge of being pwned by these brave kids. Pass the popcorn.

I met him when he was being kept at North Island, a Naval (et al) base, and he was as much a liar then as he is today, and when we watched his busses leaving, we all gave him the finger award.

Convicted traitor. Pathological liar. Wonder how many people died because of the weapons he had no business dealing in. He didn’t care about those dead people & he doesn’t care about all of the dead & maimed Americans as long as companies can sell more guns. Perfect scumbag choice to head a domestic terrorist organization that enables child murderers. Grown men shouldn’t bully high school students. The NRA is running scared these days pretending to be relevant as Robert Mueller unravels the Russian/Trump/NRA connections & money laundering. Where’s Wayne LaPuke these days? He better be getting lawyers lined out so… Read more »
