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.

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.

    mg4us, what’s your overall point? Are you saying that Black people were better off during slavery? Are you attempting somehow to say that racism isn’t a thing because whites weren’t the ones who sold Africans into slavery?

    Once again, can someone tell me why I should equate the Democrats of a century ago with those today? Can you not get past their name?

  • Sasja

    One other thing. We worked with a chap, who just happens to be black, who made the statement, when we pointed out a mis-deed perpetrated by one black against another, that “Better a black man than a white man.” How can one argue against that so-called logic? Which we tried to do, by the way, but to no avail. He still, to this day, believes that black on black crime is no big deal, but let someone with lighter skin scam a Black and it’s the crime of the century.

  • Sasja

    Well, Dave, the democrats haven’t changed much in the past 100+ years. Just their modus operanda. They learned that, with the help of the Jesse Jacksons, Al Sharptons of the world, they can keep their black constituents on the demoRat plantation even while these same people witness the utter destruction of their families and way-of-life. Ole Jesse and Al are just the modern-day slave trader in a way. Selling their brothers and sisters while being handsomely rewarded monetarily along the way.

    s/b operandi.

    That’s strange, Sasja, because the most racist people I’ve ever known identify themselves as conservative and Republican. I’m glad our anecdotal evidence cancels each other out.

  • Sasja

    Dave, you are a liar.

    When you just throw out false statements, they are recognized as such and you loose any credibility to continue the discussion.

  • shadow

    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.

    Well killing one’s self is probably not the best way to prevent it.

    Please find another name. You are casting aspersions on mine.

  • Dave

    Sasja, on what basis do you call me a liar?

    And Dave, what false statements have I made?

    Look, if Avenue Q taught me anything, it’s that everyone’s a litle bit racist. But those who have been the most powerful in their hate for people of color in my life have also been those who consider themselves Republicans. I’m not saying that Republicans are racist, because it’s foolish to make such a sweeping statement. But, I have known far more racist Republicans than I have racist Democrats.

  • shadow


    I sense a little projection there.

  • shadow

    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.

    Wouldn’t that make it 16 years? I mean, if she can do it in 2016, why wouldn’t she do it again in 2020?

    Now before your head explodes, there is zero chance that Michelle runs in 2016. That’s just your paranoia talking.

  • Comrade J

    KKK is alive and well in the present day DNC.

    – No one supports the murder of African Americans babies more than DNC.
    – No one support the failure of public schools to educate African Americans more than DNC.
    – No one support the destruction of African American families more than DNC.
    – No one supports promotion of degradation of morals and ethics more than DNC.
    – No one supports replacement of God with an idol more than DNC.

    And now we are supposed to believe that NRA is like KKK. The very organization that enabled African Americans to defend themselves against KKK?

  • shadow

    the losing tribe was either slaughtered, ran away or was captured and sold into slavery while the winners kept their women and cattle.

    Hmmm … That must be why there is no record of women slaves.

    Once a lie is told by the liberals enough times, it becomes “truth”..

    How weak America is too sit on the couch, and not take the time to read true history.

    We have a leadership (lying) problem in the White house.

  • Chris in N.Va.

    The physical boundaries of the Democrat/KKK (but I repeat myself) plantation may have changed, but the mindset of keeping “those people” in “their place” in the “natural order of things” has not. They still violently (verbally and/or physically) oppose and attack any of “them folk” that get a tad too “uppity” and who begin to think that they are capable of living outside of the Plantation apart from the condescending oversight of Massah and Ma’am.

    Can’t let that happen, now, can we? Keep ’em permanently ignorant (like this racist columnist twit) and dependent upon their “betters” and they’ll keep eternally voting for their “keepers.”

    Ol’ Lunchbox-for-brains Biden is kinfolk with this ignorance-spouting sportswriter. No, Joe, it’s the Republicans who got Black folk OUT OF the chains that the Democrats KEPT “them folk” in for generations.

    It’s an interesting exercise to talk to African-American workmates who have been raised outside of and even inside of historical (and hysterical) churches who continue to serve up the Dem Kook-Aid with their Communion. The Dems have done an excellent job of whitewashing (word intentionally used here in all its irony) their rabidly racist past and transferring their collective sins upon the Republican scapegoat. I am continually amazed when I present some of the actual history with glaring repudiations of Dem talking points and get responses of, “Wow, I never knew that.” Of course, sometimes it’s immediately followed up by the classic Democrat reply whenever their arguments (or straw man) prove to be Emperors-without-clothes, “But the Republicans…”

  • Comrade J

    A libtard around here is spewing the propaganda that KKK was like so long ago for DNC.
    Let’s examine the lie:

    Who is Robert Byrd?
    Dem Senator who was in Congress untill 2010. Amongs his great “achievements” was his Grand Kleegle (whatever that is) title in KKK and voted against Civil Rights Act. Yeah you know KKKer who died in the office in 2010. old old history…
