|Wayne LaPierre, NRA propagandist ,at CPAC|
If one wants a front row seat observing what's wrong with America, a good place to start is at CPAC - the Conservative Political Action Conference - which might better stand for Crazy People Acting Crazy. The confab is featuring a who's who of hate merchants and, of course, gave a prominent speaking platform to Wayne LaPierre of the NRA who wants every school in America turned into a "hardened site" with heavily armed teachers (the NRA is a "presenting sponsor of the event). Anything rather than adopt common sense gun control measures and a ban of assault weapons. LaPierre clearly puts gun manufacturers' profits ahead of America's school children. As NPR noted, LaPierre ended his speech, to a standing ovation, by reprising comments he made just over five years ago after the mass-shooting tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut : "To stop a bad guy with a gun, it takes a good guy with a gun."
Also featured as a speaker is French Fascist compared Brexit and the French anti-gay hate group La Manif Pour Tous with the election of Trump, citing all three as examples of the global rise of the right.
- end federal funding of public education
- no infringement on gun ownership
- end binding precedent of court rulings on non-parties to the litigation
- the privatization of Healthcare and Social Security, with Social Security being phased out
- American withdrawal from the United Nations
- anti-immigrant policies
These people are NOT mainstream and are downright frightening. Oh, and did I mention that the majority of CPAC attendees are Trump supporters?
