Columnist Defends NRA, Gets Suspended

Columnist Stacy Washington has been suspended for defending the NRA.

Ms. Washington posted the following article – Stacy Washington: Guns and the media, which defended the NRA when it was compared to the Islamic State.

From Ms. Washington’s post:

To further illustrate the ridiculous nature of Kennedy’s comparison, when has a member of the NRA ever decapitated, set on fire, tossed from a rooftop, or otherwise terrorized another American?

The linkage is not only rife with improper context; it is false on its face. Yet the Missourian saw fit to publish it without question, I believe, because it suits the ideological bent of the opinion editor.

Ms. Washington made the following post on her Twitter account.

Stacy Washington, I tip my boonie hat to you. You stood up for what was right, and you paid a price.  Take pride in knowing you stood up for our rights. If only we had more people such as yourself.

The anti-gun agenda is like a stream roller that will squash anyone who gets in the way. It does not matter who you are. If you defend the NRA, you are the enemy. Ms. Washington found that out the hard way.
