Sportswriter Jason Whitlock equates NRA with KKK, gun rights advocates fire back

Fox Sports writer Whitlock, who inspired Bob Costas’ ridiculous anti-gun rant, doubled down on his gun hate today. He told Roland Martin:

Sports gets so much attention, and people tune out the real world, that I try to take advantage of the opportunity to talk about the real world when sports lends itself to that and try to open people’s eyes. You know, I did not go as far as I’d like to go because my thoughts on the NRA and America’s gun culture – I believe the NRA is the new KKK. And that the arming of so many black youths, uh, and loading up our community with drugs, and then just having an open shooting gallery, is the work of people who obviously don’t have our best interests [at heart].

So, according to Whitlock, not only is the NRA a racist organization, but it is actively arming young blacks and getting them hooked on drugs. Unbelievable.

Second Amendment supporters know that’s complete garbage and are taking Whitlock straight to the woodshed:

Heritage Foundation investigative reporter Lachlan Markay points out that the KKK was founded in part to disarm blacks:

“The KKK began as a gun-control organization. Before the Civil War, blacks were never allowed to own guns. During the Civil War, blacks kept guns for the first time – either they served in the Union army and they were allowed to keep their guns, or they buy guns on the open market where for the first time there’s hundreds of thousands of guns flooding the marketplace after the war ends. So they arm up because they know who they’re dealing with in the South. White racists do things like pass laws to disarm them, but that’s not really going to work. So they form these racist posses all over the South to go out at night in large groups to terrorize blacks and take those guns away. If blacks were disarmed, they couldn’t fight back.”

And several people remarked that the KKK has far more in common with Planned Parenthood, which provides for the abortions of countless unborn black children, than with the NRA:

Oddly enough, not a peep from Whitlock about that.

Exactly. Truth be damned.


  • kch50428

    Jason Whitlock is going down Dan Rather’s road… when the facts don’t fit, make up sh*t.

  • Steve_J

    He should be looking at and calling out people like Jesse Jackson Jr, Al Sharpton, and many, many others if he wants to begin dealing with the problem.

  • Hired Mind

    So, according to Jason Whitlock, the mission of the KKK is to arm blacks. Brilliant.

    • ZoriahShepard

      Not only that, but the NRA has an insidious agenda by arming them to exterminate themselves. What a bufoon.

  • SpinMeNot

    Wow, see folks, this is how screwed up our public education system has become — this is what passes for critical thinking these days. Then we send them off to an Ivy-League indoctrination center and we have a never ending stream of Useful Idiots.

    The ability of the liberal progressive puke to draw moral equivalencies between the NRA and the KKK is truly phenomenal. How broken do you have to be for this sort of thing to make any sense?

    I’ve got a box of finishing nails in my shop that is brighter than this guy …

  • Guest

    The KKK didn’t lynch all those black people, the ropes did. What a dick.

  • conservativechick

    Jason needs to do some research. Cities with strict gun laws have the most gun crime! FACT.


    Whitlock is another racist black idiot, war is coming , be ready

  • Rusty Shackleford

    Hm I’m both Jewish and Catholic, but guess I’m in the KKK now because I like target shooting. Awesome?

  • AndiGibson

    And that the arming of so many black youths, uh,

    Is he familiar with Obama’s Gun for Gangsters program?

  • Jack Deth

    Why is it that in major cities under Republican mayors and states with Republican governors, weapons (handguns and rifles) are plentiful. Yet all sorts of crime is down?

    While in cities with Democrat mayors and states with Democrat governors, gun control laws and restrictions are plentiful and crime (Especially black on black) is going through the roof?

    Just askin’…

    • stuckinIL4now

      You mean like ones where the governor buys votes by paying minorities to hand out fliers about non-violence, visit museums to learn about culture and take yoga classes to learn how to manage stress that manages only to increase violence? Yeah, that Dem city-state.

      • Jack Deth

        Hi, stuckin IL4now:

        Good point(s)!

        Could easily be Chicago in the state of Illinois, Boston in Massachusetts. Baltimore or Prince George’s County in Maryland. Or Manhattan in New York.

        Heck, even Mexico. If you want to include ‘Fast & Furious’ as another failed Democrat idea gone wrong.

    • Gallatin

      Because that is what the democrat KKK wants.

    So the NRA is the KKK? What then is the anti-gun Left for the stated and organized campaign of genocide through Black abortion? Abortion culture has killed more Black youth than gun culture. Oh, excuse me, I meant nonviable Black fetuses.

  • Peyton

    Anyone else noticed that the recent gun control conversation is one that the conservatives are winning easily. Come on we need a challenge.

  • Guest

    Whitlock quit hanging out in clubs with your thug buddies and sober up. Maybe then you will understand reality. Yeah I have seen pictures of you partying with your girls and thugs, not impressed at all. Yes I know you played football at Ball State, Letterman went there also and he is a leftist nut as well.

  • CombatDiver

    Whitlock is part of the same crowd that hates guns but, supports Hamas and their barbarism.

  • Guest

    Whitlock passes for intelligence on this network? Using a public platform to advocate for his ignorant anti-gun stance and comparing ME, an NRA member for years to the KKK is an affront to my sensibilities, let alone an abuse of his role as that announcer.

    When are citizens going to state ‘enough is enough’ with the media talking-heads controlling the content of what we hear as a captive audience?

    The first Amendment is in place for our benefit, but the dangerous levels these liberals are stretching their right to a targeted audience is out of control and crossing that line into anti-American.

  • GaryTheBrave

    Jason Whitlock should also realize that the NRA is the first civil rights organization. The founders of the NRA were Civil War vets that wanted all Americans, including the former Confederates, to have the freedom to exercise their rights under the 2nd Amendment.

  • TocksNedlog

    Today’s new dog-whistle word: handgun.

  • TocksNedlog

    Shorter Whitlock: black-on-black crime is the result of a plot hatched by evil racist whites.
    Anyone think this racist piece of crap should NOT be fired?

  • $1014973

    Somehow this is all a twisted plot by Whitlock to bring back twinkies.

  • medicinewomantwo

    See, this is what happens when a corporation hires based on affirmative action verses qualifications for a legitimate journalist.

  • Nisha

    I think he should deserve for that happened

  • mhojai

    As a proud NRA member, I resent being compared to a democrat sponsored organization!

  • Gallatin

    So jason whitlock prefers blacks to be unarmed and defenseless like the real democrat KKK does.
