A few days ago, Twitchy covered New York City Councilman, Justin Brannan, for bragging about harassing members of the NRA so badly they had been ‘chased underground.’ He seriously thinks berating Americans who are trying to peaceably assemble is a good thing.
Looks like we've successfully chased the @NRA underground in #Brooklyn. Now they've gotta sneak around behind our backs and book catering halls under fake names just to have a meeting. Sounds about right. https://t.co/Rt6sOaok8N

What a jackas*, right?
Said jackas* was called out a good deal, rightfully so. And that seemed to upset his delicate sensibilities …
So I called out the NRA. Trolls & bots came out in full force. Called me fat, said I should resign, etc. I laughed. But what scares me is the amount of NRA supporters who immediately compare themselves to Jews under attack by the Nazis. It is disgusting, horrifying & indefensible

Dude, you didn’t call anyone out. You bragged as an elected official that you were able to bully people into hiding because you disagree with their politics. Using authority to trample on our rights is what a fascist would do. Sorry, not sorry.
Your ignorance is what’s disgusting and alarming. You, who tweeted less than 24 hours ago reveling in the fact that you’ve harassed NRA members to the point where they’re concerned for their safety to freely assemble. Your constituents deserve better pic.twitter.com/UzoERx43nN

His constituents get the government they deserve.
actually you were outmatched, and couldn’t defend your position of bullying a legal organization.

He did turn tail and start crying about being the victim pretty quickly.
Sucks to be attacked, bullied, insulted and vilified for your beliefs, huh?
Now you know how Conservatives in Brooklyn feel.https://t.co/YxCVw8DrSn

I see you focused on the trolls in this victimhood tweet, and ignored the people calling you out for being an elected official trying to prevent citizens from peacefully assembling.

He can’t acknowledge that what he did was actually pretty eff’d up, so he’ll pretend he was bullied … but it looks like nobody who really matters is buying it.
Gee Justin, perhaps that’s because many NRA members are in fact Jews and those who sympathize with them and those who remember what history has taught us many times over about those who want to take or diminish the rights of others.

I’m sorry but… do you think you’re the victim here?

It’s what progressives do.
Called out the NRA for what, exactly? Defending our Constitution?
