NRA more popular than Obama, media silent

Despite the propaganda campaign being waged by the so-called “mainstream media,” the National Rifle Association remains more popular than President Obama, Newsbusters said Friday. Unfortunately, much of America won’t know about this because the media has remained silent.

According to the latest Gallup survey, 54 percent of Americans hold a favorable view of the NRA.

That’s just slightly higher than Obama’s favorability rating, now at 53 percent.

On Wednesday, Obama declared war on the NRA and those who believe in the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

“The only way we will be able to change is if their audience, their constituents, their membership says, this time must be different, that this time we must do something to protect our communities and our kids,” he said, speaking of “pundits and politicians and special interest lobbyists” like the NRA.

CBS anchor Bob Schieffer dutifully compared Obama’s battle with the NRA to the conflict with Nazi Germany, and Stephanie Cutter said the Obama 2012 campaign apparatus was gearing up to take on those who support the Second Amendment.

Since the Newtown shootings, the entire Democrat-media complex has gone overboard portraying gun supporters as spawn of the devil in an overt attempt to marginalize and demonize law-abiding gun owners.

Liberals, including a member of the Texas Democratic Party Executive Committee, have called for members of the NRA to be murdered and irresponsible media outlets have published the names of those with legal gun permits.

After using four children as props for his signing of 23 executive orders on guns, the White House issued videos of those same children begging for gun control.

A recent survey conducted on behalf of CNN and Time magazine show that public support for gun control is dropping, since rational thought is replacing the high emotions felt immediately after the Newtown shootings.
