Joe Scarborough, Piers Morgan attack Wayne LaPierre for pro-gun-rights op-ed

NRA Chief Wayne LaPierre penned an op-ed for The Daily Caller in which he asserted the importance of the Second Amendment in modern American society. Perish the thought that there are situations that might require self-defense! MSNBC hack Joe Scarborough certainly can’t fathom such a notion, and he registered his outrage with a Twitter tirade:

On today’s “Morning Joe,” he continued:

Those “racial overtones,” according to Scarborough? The op-ed’s mentions of “Hispanic drug gangs” and “those terrible people in Brooklyn.” For the record, this is what LaPierre actually wrote:

Latin American drug gangs have invaded every city of significant size in the United States. Phoenix is already one of the kidnapping capitals of the world, and though the states on the U.S./Mexico border may be the first places in the nation to suffer from cartel violence, by no means are they the last.

After Hurricane Sandy, we saw the hellish world that the gun prohibitionists see as their utopia. Looters ran wild in south Brooklyn. There was no food, water or electricity. And if you wanted to walk several miles to get supplies, you better get back before dark, or you might not get home at all.

What does it say about Scarborough that he automatically assumes that LaPierre is referring to minorities when he refers to Brooklyn looters? Maybe he and MSNBC colleague Chris Matthews need to audit a sensitivity-training course.

Piers Morgan, not content to sit out of an NRA-bashing session, weighed in on LaPierre’s op-ed with his own deep thoughts:

Uglier than the filth spewed by Morgan on a daily basis?

Bingo. Those graves aren’t going to dance on themselves.

    I think its about time to sink to these idiots level and destroy them.

      There is no other way. If the high road resonated with the low information voter, then it would be another story. We need to be just as nasty, snarky, smarmy, condescending, etc just to stay even with them. Basically we have to argue with them like we are in high school.

        High school? They’re more like elementary-school level.

    Joe Scarborough @JoeNBC “Hispanic Drug Gangs? Hurricanes? Tornadoes? Riots? Terrorists? Really?? Why does Wayne LaPierre think so little of America?”

    Speaking of “thinking so little of America”…….why did Obama say he wanted to “Fundamentally transform America”? Feel free to pose that question to your great none at any time there Joe!

      Is MSDNC’s House Eunuch denying that Latin Gangs, Weather Disasters, and Looting are things that exist in the USA?

        Next him and Prissy Piers will claim Hurricane Sandy was caused by the NRA so they can sell guns.

    It’s those damn blue eyed blonde haired swedes doing all the drive bys….drug dealing…robberies and other violent crimes..Right Joe?

  • traffic_robot

    No better way to avoid evidence of the need for self defense than to attack the messenger. Wow, more undergraduate debate tactics…

  • Steve_J

    Scarborough is a joke and Musket isn’t even up to joke level.

  • traffic_robot

    And the irony of old white men dictating to women like myself the level of self defense I am entitled to is not lost on me.

    At least Wayne IS an American, Piers. You are an ignorant, unwelcome, limey drone. STFU already. K??

    As for the murderer, Joe Scarborough?? He has a lot of damned gall to speak of violence. I wonder what Lori Klausutis would have to say about her former employer. She can’t talk, though, because she had her head bashed in in Joe’s office.

    Oh…poor Joe is offended…calling LaPierre’s op-ed, laced with “racial overtones?”

    Apparently RINO nitwit Scarbrain thinks the infamous drug gang on the Arizona border is called The McGillicuddys.

  • Rod Rambler

    Joe is another Obama zombie and yes he is an old white man trying to hide by being a liberal propagandist.
