Is This the Craziest Right Wing Tweet About the Paris Attacks?
Immediately following the horrific terror attacks in Paris, conservative media and blogs started pushing their usual line of horse puckey; the French had it coming because they have strict gun control laws. If they only had more guns, they could have stopped those terrorists in their tracks.
Of course, France’s gun control laws also prevent the kind of continual random gun massacres we see in the United States on an almost weekly basis, but never mind that — “MOAR GUNZ!” they cry!
Perhaps the most absurdly over the top expression of this right wing cult of gun-worship comes from Nevada Republican Assemblywoman Michelle Fiore, who tweeted this bizarre Photoshopped image yesterday accusing the French of being “defenseless.”
There are so many levels of craziness in this tweet it’s hard to enumerate them all, but for starters — that link she posted goes to the website of the racist, antisemitic, conspiracy-theory-promoting John Birch Society.
