Sorry Libs… The NRA Was There to Help Blacks Defend Themselves From KKK Democrats, Not the Other Way Around

On September 28, 1868, a mob of Democrats massacred nearly 300 African-American Republicans in Opelousas, Louisiana. The savagery began when racist Democrats attacked a newspaper editor, a white Republican and schoolteacher for ex-slaves. Several African-Americans rushed to the assistance of their friend, and in response, Democrats went on a “Negro hunt,” killing every African-American (all of whom were Republicans) in the area they could find. (Via Grand Old Partisan)

Which brings us to today…
Asshat Jason Whitlock, the Kansas City columnist whose article on Jovan Belcher‘s murder-suicide inspired an anti-gun rant by NBC’s Bob Costas, now says that the pro-Second Amendment National Rifle Association is “the new KKK,” Newsbusters’ Tim Graham reported Monday.

Obviously, Whitlock is as ignorant as he is offensive.
The NRA actually helped blacks defend themselves from violent KKK Democrats in the south, not the other way around.
Ann Coulter wrote about the history of blacks and the NRA back in April.

This will give you an idea of how gun control laws worked. Following the firebombing of his house in 1956, Dr. Martin Luther King, who was, among other things, a Christian minister, applied for a gun permit, but the Alabama authorities found him unsuitable. A decade later, he won a Nobel Peace Prize.

How’s that “may issue” gun permit policy working for you?

The NRA opposed these discretionary gun permit laws and proceeded to grant NRA charters to blacks who sought to defend themselves from Klan violence — including the great civil rights hero Robert F. Williams.

A World War II Marine veteran, Williams returned home to Monroe, N.C., to find the Klan riding high — beating, lynching and murdering blacks at will. No one would join the NAACP for fear of Klan reprisals. Williams became president of the local chapter and increased membership from six to more than 200.

But it was not until he got a charter from the NRA in 1957 and founded the Black Armed Guard that the Klan got their comeuppance in Monroe.

Williams’ repeated thwarting of violent Klan attacks is described in his stirring book, “Negroes With Guns.” In one crucial battle, the Klan sieged the home of a black physician and his wife, but Williams and his Black Armed Guard stood sentry and repelled the larger, cowardly force. And that was the end of it.

As the Klan found out, it’s not so much fun when the rabbit’s got the gun.

The NRA’s proud history of fighting the Klan has been airbrushed out of the record by those who were complicit with the KKK, Jim Crow and racial terror, to wit: the Democrats.

Sadly, asshat Whitlock will get away with his outrageous lies.
The early KKK Democrats would be proud.

    So what would happen if we all call NBC and complain that Bob Costas must be a racist. What is he suggesting? That blacks shouldn’t be allowed to own guns?

    LOL… I bet this would scare the libs and shut them up on the gun control issue if we use the racist card against them for it.

    I think thast a lot of these “stars get handed a script by their Manager. Most are dumb as posts.
    Costas is the Newel post. “Here red this, it is our turn” and so the donks get the rant out and as ususal it is a bell that is rung. the GOP never has anyone to respond. We really need an agnew or a atwater to rake the Donks and stars over the coals.

    I was very happy to hear talk radio jump all over this today.
    if you don’t know, and
    are excellent for accumulating audio clips.
    (then get yourself an private, plug-in FM transmitter and listen on any home radio)

    I think Rush was asserting Whitlock’s “publicity stunt” to satirize the ‘Fluke’ fluke.

    my favorite rebuttal was that no Lefty would blame cultural rot or family breakdown, would they? My speculation is that the murderer wanted his long-time girlfriend (not wife) to get an abortion. When she refused, he saw his huge salary in jeopardy from a bratty, unwanted child.
    (which, oh not-so-by-the-way, is a dirty little secret- CADS Love Abortion!)

    Great story, Jim

    The NRA is only ‘the new KKK’ to those who’s agenda benefits by slandering them

    Same as the Tea Party are ‘Nazis’ and Paul Ryan is ‘extreme’… whatever

  • Highlander

    Brace yourselves folks. We’re in for four long years of this nonsense. It’s up to us to fight it relentlessly, and make sure it doesn’t gain traction …

    Actually we are in for 12 long years of it since Michelle Obama will almost certainly run in 2016, and she will win the same way bin Obama did. I hate to make you sick but the GOP needs to understand the consequences of having no spine.

    I think everyone here at GP understands this to one degree or another but to repeat;


    They think we are sexist, racist and homophobic, etc. Would you negotiate with a racist, sexist, homophobic, bigot?

    Now for the grassroots we KNOW the Dems are far left loons who want to fundamentally transform America, YET, our so called leaders in Washington negotiate like the Dems are just slightly left of center politicians who love the country but have ‘slightly’ different policies.


  • BigAlSouth

    Historical Fact: Behind every KKK hooded robe is a Registered Democrat.

    Put that in your pipe and smoke it, Costas.

  • bobdog

    Bob Costas should stick to subjects he knows something about.

    Which is nothing.

  • squeaky

    a neighbor called the local police at about 3:00 a.m. when a woman came banging on her door looking for help. she didn’t let her in but told her she would call 911. the woman didn’t wait and walked off with another individual…..the police never showed up. and an OT since benghazi hasn’t been revisited recently….

  • Jack

    That might be true but unless people like Rush, Levine, Beck, Hannity and politicians start fighting the racist dems head on these lies will stick. I would love to see Hannity devote half of his show to the history of democrat racism-from the past to the present. It would cause and uproar and bring the conversation to the forefront.

    Revisionist History keeps blacks on The DemocRAT plantation of poverty and despair . . .

    Please remind our Black American colleagues that:
    – More black families are torn apart today then under slavery. . .
    – More black children are fatherless today than under slavery. . .
    – More black males are in prison than working today than under slavery. . .
    – More blacks are enslaved to drugs, gangs or poverty today than under slavery. . .
    – and More black mothers are dependent on their slave-master – -the federal gub-ment!

    And the Gub-ment, they ’em want dose handguns of yers. . so dey can controll ya better!

  • Sam Stone

    Many many liberals believe now and will believe in the future that the KKK was the right wing of the political spectrum. They will NEVER believe the truth.

  • mg4us

    Oh and let’s not forget the dirty little secret about Slavery. .

    That it was their Black African Brothers that sold them to the white man in the first place.

    Often the result of tribal conflicts and defeat on the dark continent of Africa. . the losing tribe was either slaughtered, ran away or was captured and sold into slavery while the winners kept their women and cattle.

    Slavery STILL exists in parts of Africa. . as well as Saudi Arabia and soon Egypt again. . .

    a black man kills a black woman and jason whitlock sees white racists. oh the joys of a journalism school education.

  • Sasja

    Libs, who are the most racist people I have had the misfortune to know, are going to continue the narrative that right-wingers, republicans, conservatives, are racists because it works. We could take all the people who believe this lie, transport them back in time to witness for themselves the lies, and most would still believe the narrative the liars on the left have established it has become so ingrained in their psyche.
