Virgin’s Richard Branson: ‘NRA, NRA, how many kids have you killed today?’

Move over, Michael Moore. Step aside, Piers Morgan. There’s a new grave dancer in town:

Demonizing the NRA in rhyme? How clever! Branson may have some savoir-faire as an entrepreneur, but as a political authority and philosopher? He’s in way over his empty little head.

Second Amendment defenders are thoroughly disgusted:

Sickening, loathsome, vicious troll.

      • Raye09

        30,000 people are killed by gun violence each year, 1,200,000 people are killed by abortions.
        I don’t see how anyone can claim to be pro life and anti death penalty(life so many liberals), yet support late term and partial birth abortion, both cause pain and suffering. I came to this realization myself years ago. I can’t be anti-death penalty yet support abortion, it makes no sense.

        • EndangeredNJRepub

          ~53% of those 30,000 are suicides.

        • tredglx

          Yet the Brits are bowing to every Muslim demand, and hewing to their calls for preferential treatment because of their ‘religion.’

          • BayouLimey

            I know, it says Jewish, and reading it requires nuance and comprehension. Are you up to it?

            Do a Google search.
            Plenty to be found.

          • BayouLimey

            I have no problem with that. UK divorce law incorporates Christian divorce proceedings so if a Jewish, Hindu or Muslim couple went to court then in the eyes of the law they are divorced but in the eyes of the God they believe in they aren’t. If you read the article you would have noticed that the High Court Judge states that religious courts are allowed to give divorces so long as they keep within English law otherwise a court will overrule it.

    • Judy B

      More important, which “side” truly cares about children!

  • Peyton

    More Virgin Airlines customers have killed kids than NRA members. Not a fact, just an opinion.

    • Gerard Kennelly

      why doesn’t he ask the car companies how many they killed this year ??
      oh yeah,, because that isn’t news at the moment

  • Guest

    Branson should direct his focus on his shabby little home country of Englandistan…
    where their violent crime per capita statistics,
    make the U.S. look like Luxembourg.

    • BayouLimey

      Violent crime per capita statistics are misleading. The UK’s rate is so much higher because the USA and UK categorise violent crime differently. The FBI classes murder, non-negligent manslaughter, rape, robbery and aggravated assault as violent crime while the UK classes all crimes against the person, so simple assaults that result in no injuries, all sexual offences and all robberies are being included in the British stats.

      On top of that both the USA and UK have different definitions for aggravated assault. The FBI’s definition is severe or aggravated injury while the British Home Office includes less serious wounding. Of the 400,000 aggravated assaults committed in the UK around 350,000 were marked as causing less serious wounding so a lot of crime that the UK is recording as aggravated assault wouldn’t necessarily be considered so in the United States.

      On a side note, America, please accept our apologies for inflicting Richard Branson and Piers Morgan on you.

    For any of you youngsters who may have missed it, that chant was originally “Hey hey, LBJ, How many kids did you kill today!” A reference of course to the Presidents Kennedy & Johnson (Ds) who got us involved in the so-called quagmire of Vietnam with no clear parameters of what we were doing or what our goals were. Johnson’s inept handling of Vietnam was what drove him from office.

    • Love of Country

      Thanks for the refresher …. it sounded familiar but I couldn’t place it.
      It’s time someone got that idiot on record about how he feels about black dems who do the lion’s share of the killings in this country…. I mean as long as he’s comfortable besmirching the GOP for things Owebama supporters do.

      I wouldn’t expect an honest answer ….. but instead a tortured lie …. my favorite kind of liberal lie, lol.

    • Judy B

      Regarding the quagmire: British “Encounter” journalist Robert Elegant stated:

      “For the first time in modern history, the outcome of a war was
      determined not on the battlefield but on the printed page and, above
      all, on the television screen. Looking back coolly, I believe it can be
      said (surprising as it may still sound) that South Vietnamese and
      American forces actually won the limited military struggle. They
      virtually crushed the Viet Cong in the South, the “native” guerrillas
      who were directed, reinforced, and equipped from Hanoi; and thereafter
      they threw back the invasion by regular North Vietnamese divisions.
      Nonetheless, the war was finally lost to the invaders after the U.S.
      disengagement because the political pressures built up by the media had
      made it quite impossible for Washington to maintain even the minimal
      material and moral support that would have enabled the Saigon regime to
      continue effective resistance….Never before Vietnam had the collective
      policy of the media sought by graphic and unremitting distortion, the
      victory of the enemies of the correspondents own side.”

    • Larry G.

      “got us involved in the so-called quagmire of Vietnam with no clear parameters of what we were doing or what our goals were”

      this sounds so familiar to Iraq, why do we never remember our past? “forget your history and you are doomed to repeat it”.
