As Twitchy reported last week, YouTube sensation Colion Noir joined NRA News as a contributor. The Left’s anti-gun zealots immediately went into meltdown mode over his “Coming Soon to NRA News” video.
Russell Simmons is a little late to the pearl-clutching game.
But by Thursday he was sufficiently worked up about “some black guy with a Yankees hat” to publish a Global Grind post titled, “The NRA & Black People: Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That!”
Our community is not interested in a corporate sponsored gun group telling us what to do, when their real mission is to make more money for the corporations that line their dirty pockets with rolls of cash and silver bullets. We’re much smarter than that and certainly can see through their motives. Until they show a real interest in solving the violence problem in our community, they can keep their Yankee hat-wearing spokesman and their African-American “campaigns” for themselves.
Like Touré, Simmons has appointed himself the voice of black America and is out to belittle any black American who won’t toe the lefty line. How progressive! Noir wasn’t about to let that go unchallenged.
“Shocking.” That’s the same word Simmons used when he discovered that there are terrible, no-good people who teach their daughters to defend themselves with firearms instead of yoga poses. Noir knocked down that argument without breaking a sweat.
Simmons made an effort to respond, but he couldn’t quite keep up with Noir’s pesky logic. Bless his precious heart.
And here it comes: Noir is nothing but a tool. Predictable.
So instead, he went running to his Twitter followers to fight his battle for him.
Meanwhile, Noir took Simmons and his troll brigade to liberty school.
His full Facebook note:
A note to Russell Simmons, I don’t have fans, I have supporters. This is real life, not music, not movies, real life. You kicked the hornets and thought you could walk away, but you were wrong. The NRA came to me after saying what I have been saying for two years. We’re not lil wayne fans, we take this seriously, we believe in our rights and the ability to protect ourselves. Black, White, Hispanic, Asian, we are Americans with the right to live and protect that life. The gun is the equalizer in a world of evil whether you want to believe it or not. Remember this the next time you decide to come down from your ivory tower and attack someones motives who you know nothing about. As pro gunners we protect our own, the same way we would protect you with our guns if someone threatened your life.
And that’s a win.
