MSNBC: NRA Chief Wayne LaPierre ‘Afraid of Dark People’


Once again MSNBC has accused the National Rifle Association of being racists. Now host Alex Wagner claimed that NRA chief Wayne LaPierre employed coded racism in a recent op-ed he wrote.

The day after the President’s State of the Union speech, LaPierre posted an op-ed detailing the NRA’s response to Obama’s speech. In the op-ed, LaPierre said that gun ownership was not just “paranoia.”

Hurricanes. Tornadoes. Riots. Terrorists. Gangs. Lone criminals. These are perils we are sure to face–not just maybe. It’s not paranoia to buy a gun. It’s survival. It’s responsible behavior, and it’s time we encourage law-abiding Americans to do just that.

This paragraph is what set Wagner off. “There’s also a lot of racial–racism imbedded in that full statement. He goes on to impugn Latin America as…

    Wayne LaPierre is NOT afraid fo “dark people”. He’s afraid of STUPID people who are trying everything they can think of to undermine and destroy the 2nd amendment rights of everyone in this country. Whether you choose to exercise them or not, your 2nd amendment rights are being defended by the NRA, NSSF, SAF, CCRKBA and every other gun rights group in the country. Character assassination by the MSM and the anti-gun liars of the world are NOT going to change my mind about anything. I’ve been a proud gun owner since I was eight years old and I’m fifty-eight now. You want my guns? MOLON LABBE!

    MSNBC’s bunch are the true, scripted racists! Pump up the white guilt with a very childish double-dare from incapable individuals who hang tight within their Circle of Nod.

    • TexasJester

      Of course they’re racist. They’re progressive socialist democrats.

    Have a nephew that has an IQ of 89 have to say he is smarter than these humans on

  • Charlie

    Message got sent before I finished. As stated nephew IQ 89 he is smarter than rhe humans on MSNBC. Even with an IQ of 89 he understands that he can not have a gun,mentally disabled. However he also understands that WE THE PEOPLE have a GOD given right to have weapons. We actually have the right to have exactly the same type of weapons that our employees in our government have, but now we are kind of restricted to lesser weapons. Nephew goes to church regularly, he has morals, he respects his elders and all others. Nephew has commented about our rights in our country and how certain news( yeah news my…) casters try twist everything into a racist or hate story.

    • TexasJester

      Low IQ numbers don’t always make a dumb person….

      FYI, one of the buttons available when you post on Disqus, after you post, is “edit” – it allows you to change or add to your comment after you’ve published. You don’t have to start a new comment.. Been there, done that..

  • MarylandShooter

    Always playing the race card.

    Lone criminals.

    I don’t see race even suggested and honestly my arms protect me from criminals – any type.

    • Steve Thomas

      “Dark” does not ONLY refer to skin tone.
      It is not “always about “you”.(That is about skin tone)

  • Charlie

    How about this srory line : Liberal media makes statements of racism to promote hate of all races within the U.S.A.

  • DJ_Fisher

    The MSM are like a band that only knows one song.

  • Charlie

    One more remark . In the NRA there are all races, all skin colors and all are proud to call themself americans, U.S.A. citizens. Never heard anyone being a racist in the N.R.A. the members seem to be to smart to do racist agenda. However for someone to call another a name(racist) the name caller is usually the bigot therefore the racist.

    • gail2012

      That’s right. We need to reach out to everybody about the 2nd amendment. This spans everyone.

  • Molon Labe

    The MSM are paid government shills and have -0- credibility as they are fully engaged as propaganda machine for the Marxists. Goebels would be very proud of these morons.
    Take names and make a list to be held accountable for their part as accomplices to crimes against The Constitution and Bill of Rights when everything comes down around us. They have chosen their side and will pay for it.
    You can run but you can’t hide…

  • jhforsythe

    These people are idiots! This is why the network is going down the tubes. Only a moron would watch them.

    • gerf

      No offense to ” morons “, some of them , would not even watch these people !

  • richard

    Not in the least there are many “people of color” that belong to the NRA, if he fears anyone it is liberals. Now there is nothing about race in this story, UNLESS MSNBC here is stating that rioters, criminals, and gangs are all black. If that is the case the idiots at MSNBC are the racists.

  • Gym Shu

    MSNBS, the Dump-of-Crap party and all of the Liberal Media are the ones who are truely afraid of dark people. They’re the ones that are afraid of educating them. Once they become educated they see how the Looney Left are the one’s who oppressing them, keeping them down on the Plantation. A truely educated dark person, their discription, becomes a conservative.

  • Donnie J McDonald

    The left cannot win the argument over the 2nd amendments on merit so they resort to name calling and race bating. I am starting to understand why the left fears guns, they know left wingers cannot be trusted with guns. This is typical left wing garbage, attack the messenger, because they have no legitimate argument against the message. They also know they want to rule over us at the point of a gun and that can only happen if guns are banned. MOLON LABE!

  • gail2012

    Always playing the race card is right
    We need to stop them and how can we do that. Well since we don’t have local or main stream media then we’re going to have to change minds the old fashion way. I live in Maryland in a mixed Hood. Speaking with my neighbors I have found that they don’t know the half of what’s going on. When I tell them the things obama’s doing it’s like they know things aren’t right with him they just need to know more. I think we need to go into minority neighborhoods and start educating them. I’m going to start with a kind of letter addressing our 1st & 2nd Amendment and how obama’s trying to disarm America. How he’s not working on more jobs, how blacks have the highest unemployment. I was told by my neighbors they voted for obama because the republicans wanted shut down big bird and cut off foodstamps. Each week we need to flood the blue swing states with the truth about obama’s socialist/communist agenda. We need to work with conservative black leaders from the news media, elected gov. conservative officals and people like Dr. Carson. Get into these communities now and Find other blacks, hispanics, orientals to help us get the true message
    out. We need to go into the lower income welfare neighborhoods And work at changing minds.

  • slickzip

    Wagner is a scumbag socialist/communist/liberal ass hole ,,,,

  • KHBudig

    Liberals. Liberals demanding control. Thats why!

  • pmonly

    This is so asinine. This is the kind of mentality that PC gets you. Wow, I am very offended by the sun! It tried to change my color! It is racist!! Can we ban it? Ha Ha Ha!!

  • runnindeer

    That’s why MSNBC is the lowest rated news program on air. With idiots like these , it surprises me they have lasted this long. The only people who would listen to or follow them are the people who are like those who report on the show.

  • Black Rain

    That’s funny. I guess blacks are afraid of blacks. With black on blacks crime the highest of all crimes, it stand to reason. MSNBC is one of the largest race bating, maybe second to NAACP.

  • gerf

    I don’t think he is afraid of dark people , rather he is afraid of those who are in the dark John 3: 19-21 ,most or all of the time !

  • gerf

    High IQ doesn’t always denote a wise person

  • Adrian Vance

    They are only expressing their own fear. If you know any of these people, as have I, they are eager to loudly proclaim their love of “black” people so all will know they are their friends. They have nightmares of getting slashed by razors at the hands of a mob of Negroes. Fear is a powerful force. It built the Democratic Party.

    Come see us at The Two Minute Conservative, and when you speak fine ladies will swoon and liberal gentlemen will weep.

  • mesaman

    There are racists who are proud of their un-PC posture. There are racists who believe they are entitled to whine and complain and pimp their way through life. And their are democrats (lefties, liberals, dungbeetles, jacka88es, commies, socialists, fascists, idiots) who are too vain to believe they have fallen prey to the “permanently stupid” generation. Bammie has done more to foster racial strife in this country than George Wallace. I am not afraid of dark people but I am afraid of people in the dark.

  • Frank W Brown

    More crap from msnbc, sadly, too many folks listen to this garbage!!

  • marineh2ominer

    Yeah , like DARK alleys in Chicago , Philadelphia , New York , Las Angeles , Detroit ,etc: etc : etc: .

  • Jerry Kaser

    MSNBC loves dark people; they want all black babies concieved out wedlock to be aborted! Wonder what that will do for the future of blaks?

  • foxxybey

    I knew the left wing lame stream media would play the race card once again. Check the prisons media of hitlers left, the towns like Chicago and LA, places you don’t want to drive through because of all the illegal guns that don’t go through background checks of any kind, the lame stream media learned in the places of higher education from left wing nut jobs who shouldn’t be teaching anywhere.

  • WrenchSpinner

    I have a theory about this. I think it is a proprietary network for a particular audience. MSNBC=Many Stupid Nitwits Believe Crazies. Any educated individual can clearly tell Mr. LaPierre is referring to exactly what he meant. “The dark,” meaning that strange occurrence that happens around the same time every day when the sun no longer shows in the sky and criminals of ALL sizes, shapes, colors, and features kill, rob and rape with all of their splender using the cover of nightshade. If any MSNBC fans are reading this and happen to wonder what it actually means, I should make it a little simpler for them. HELL-O, people who watch box that talks with light pictures inside that move. Bad man LaPierre, Is NOT BAD! He no means skin hate talk. He means no fireball in sky, go sleepy time. People you believe all the time messed up. Alex Wagner had head in microwave too long. Don’t you try it, or you will be crazy too. The End. Now drink your milk, brush your teeth, and go to bed. Whispering…”Sometimes you have to break it down for the simple minded.”
