Oliver North to be NRA President

I'm at a loss for words.

We're in crazy town. I've got vertigo. My shoes are talking to me.

For those who aren't acquainted, Lt. Col Oliver North was the guy 'behind' the Iran-Contra scandal in the Reagan administrations, when just-Oliver-and-totally-not-Reagan-at-all-no-sir illegally sold missiles to Iran in order to illegally funnel money to the Contras, a guerrilla army in Nicaragua who were fighting the communists and also running a cocaine empire on the side. Despite this basically being treason, North got off Scott-free and more importantly didn't narc on any superiors.

I guess it kinda makes sense since traitors are in fashion with the republican party at the moment, and also the 80's are in vogue at the moment what with Stranger Things and all, but still, yikes.

North's rehabilitation by the right is nothing new. In 1994, he ran for the US Senate in Virginia, against incumbent Democratic senator Chuck Robb and he almost won. He had a show on Fox News between 2001 and 2016.

I mean, the NRA already became a caricature of itself years ago. Why not bring the poster boy for irresponsible weapons sales on board?

A new NRA commercial touting their new president:

"If it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them; but the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?"

This will show the libtards that the NRA means business!

Ollie North is a true American because he didn't snitch. If he had told the truth he would now be a felon and that would mean he couldn't legally own a gun.

Shit let's make him the next American president. At least he's got experience working for various governments.

Wayne LaPierre utterly ruined the NRA when he hijacked it.

Hearing the NRA has hired an illegal arms dealer is like if I heard PETA hired Michael Vick: it should be appalling, but my respect for the NRA is so completely absent that it just makes me nod and say "yeah, that sounds like something they'd do."
