    always be on guard.

    Found this Associated Press article interesting. It’s dated yesterday (April 5, 2015) and the subject had to do with the NRA annual convention in Nashville and the fact the Tennessee Governor had not been invited to speak at this “event.”
    (AP) Author: Erik Schelzig

    The article started off fairly sedate (if not actually ‘charitable’) by a national media source:

    “…more than 70,000 gun enthusiasts descend on Nashville for the National Rifle Association's annual meeting this week…”

    I was thinking to myself, the use of the term “gun enthusiasts” for NRA members was nice to see. They usually refer to the NRA membership as those “gun lobbyists.”

    But of course OLD HABBITS are hard to break and by the end of that same AP article, there it was:

    “…the meeting of the powerful gun lobby…”

    This is the kind of incredibly subtle and yet seditious behavior I’ve come to expect from the propaganda machine that is our country’s main stream press.

    That's absolutely correct! Participants in the shooting sports have been demonized and vilified by the media for decades! Meanwhile, turds like Feinstein are entitled "The distinguished Senator from California."

    The late Ted Kennedy left a trail of slime wherever he went, but he was always referred to as the "Distinguished Senator............" I'll wager that Mary Jo Kopecne didn't see him in that light when Ted abandoned her to drown in his submerged car. He hid out long enough to sober up, concoct a story and get his lawyers and liars churning up a "spin."

    Meanwhile, no matter how we conduct ourselves, we are portrayed as drunken, ignorant, knuckle dragging apes.

    I think, no, I'm certain we have no idea of the context since you cherry picked passages. It may be propaganda and may not.

    He said portrayed, meaning another's opinion. No reason to get bent.

    Yep, the propaganda is everywhere. I got a letter from the NRA the other day about being nominated for some sort of award. Further in the letter it talks about how membership to be one of these elite award winners costs $200 a year :laughing: Who falls for this crap?

    TheDan,

    Obviously those who have more $$$$ than brains.

    Btw, have you seen the ANTI-Campus Carry TV commercials being run by "Blooming Idiot" & his NY pals? -- Just because you have lots of money doesn't mean you have either brains or commonsense. = Bloomberg is proof positive of that fact.
    (The "knew yawk crowd" weren't even smart enough to have a speaker from TX read their foolishness.)

    yours, satx
