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:
@whitlockjason NRA the new KKK? Seriously?

That last headline is almost too much. The NRA is the KKK? Guess @whitlockjason doesn’t know Black people are allowed to have guns too.

@whitlockjason how many gun owners do you actually know? You’re painting people with broad brush, and 1 that doesn’t match gun owners I know

Hi, @whitlockjason, I suggest that you google “fast & furious” before you run your mouth about the NRA.

@whitlockjason Really the NRA is the KKK? How do we break this to black NRA members.

@whitlockjason calls the NRA “racist; the new KKK”. That sound you hear is your last shred of credibility flying out the window! Moron!

Black people are never responsible for their own decisions. Just ask @whitlockjason

@whitlockjason If you don’t like guns, fine! don’t push your BS on the rest of us. “NRA the new KKK” is laughable. Proving an idiot you are

@whitlockjason Comparing the NRA to the KKK??? C’mon brahhhhh. Stick to sports. Great sportswriter, ignorant political hack.

@whitlockjason is a self-hating racist. He thinks all blacks are too stupid not to kill each other if guns come into their homes.

Heritage Foundation investigative reporter Lachlan Markay points out that the KKK was founded in part to disarm blacks:
I wonder if @whitlockjason knows that the KKK worked to restrict gun ownership. Made it easier to prey on 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.”
@whitlockjasonEver explore the history of racism behind gun control?Sad that you’re on the KKK’s side of the argument.

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:
Jason Whitlock accused the NRA of doing what Planned Parenthood is actually doing.
— Wittorical (@Wittorical) December 3, 2012
Wondering when @whitlockjason‘s next piece on Planned Parenthood’s black genocide will happen. Or Whitlock on out-of-wedlock births? Hmmm.
— Douglas Ernst (@douglasernst) December 3, 2012
@whitlockjason Margaret Sanger’s stated goal for Planned Parenthood was to use abortions to reduce the black population. Modern-day KKK?
— Patrick Graham (@BAFAphenom) December 3, 2012
@whitlockjason Planned Parenthood is the new KKK! It was even started by racist Margaret Sanger.
— Joseph giattino (@Joegiattino) December 3, 2012
Oddly enough, not a peep from Whitlock about that.
— Bob Davenport (@2cowboys4u) December 3, 2012
Exactly. Truth be damned.
I propose a new term – Whitlock’s Law, for when a discussion of a topic degenerates to KKK references, thanks to unserious @whitlockjason.
