Is The NRA The New KKK?

In the aftermath of the Kansas City Chiefs’ shooting tragedy, a Fox Sports commentator called the NRA the new Ku Klux Klan in an anti-gun statement.

Since the weekend murder/suicide committed by Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher, the issue of gun control has been brought back into the forefront of commentary.

An article on Examiner.com, reported that NBC Sports commentator Bob Costas was the first to be criticized by gun rights advocates for his diatribe against gun ownership during halftime at a Cowboys-Eagles.

But a Saturday column by Fox Sports commentator Jason Whitlock goes much further. And it didn’t end there. Whitlock backed it up going on to call the National Rifle Association “the new KKK" (Ku Klux Klan).

“I did not go as far as I’d like to go because my thoughts on the NRA and America’s gun culture,” Whitlock wrote, according to Examiner.com. He then reportedly went on to say, “I believe the NRA is the new KKK. The arming of so many black youths, and loading up our community with drugs, and then just having an open shooting gallery, is the work of people that obviously don’t have our best interests.”

What do you think about these statements? Are they fair based on the situation or outrageous statements for which he should apologize?

They are outrageous, but I dont think he needs to apologize...after all, any apology from someone that stupid probably wouldnt be sincere, and even abject morons are entitled to their opinions. Anybody with half a brain, a category which apparently excludes Bob Costas and Jason Whitlock, knows that the 'arming of black youths' involved in the drug culture problem is not a program of the NRA. Costas was on O'rielly last night blaming the violence on blacks and sports culture. Instead of asking if these fools should apologize, why the hell arent Costas and Whitlock being ostracized for being racists?!
