“Gun Appreciation Day” Sponsored by White Supremacists

What right wing racism?

The gun-crazy right wing is holding an event tomorrow called “Gun Appreciation Day,” in which they’ll all take out their weapons, gaze lovingly at them, and lavish attention on them. Maybe take them out to brunch.

And one of the sponsors of this lovely family-friendly event is a white supremacist hate group.

Gun Appreciation Day, a prominent effort backed by conservative media outlets and activists to oppose new gun laws, has accepted the sponsorship of a white nationalist organization to promote and mobilize supporters for its January 19 event.

Gun Appreciation Day (GAD) is partnering with the American Third Position (A3P), a political group that describes itself as representing “the unique political interests of white Americans.” According to a party official, the organization is composed of “white nationalists.”

GAD’s organizers ask supporters to visit “gun stores, gun counters, gun shows, and gun ranges to protest the Obama administration’s post Sandy Hook assault on gun rights.” The event has received significant media coverage and promotion in recent days.

GAD lists A3P on its “sponsors” page along with its logo, motto (“Liberty. Sovereignty. Identity”) and a link to american3rdposition.com. Other sponsors include prominent conservative media outlets like RedState, the right-wing blog edited by CNN contributor Erick Erickson. The event’s main page asks visitors to “Please Support Our Sponsors.”

A screenshot of the A3P logo on the sponsors page:

Shortly after this article appeared online, the organizers of “Gun Appreciation Day” removed American Third Position from their list of sponsors. Yeah, that solves the problem.
