I see nothing wrong.

The left started a resistance...the NRA will help me protect myself from them.

Go Dana!

You know you can't shoot people based on political affiliation, right?

You do know that, right?

Trump's America.


Last shooter I remember that was targeting people because of political ideology shot up a Republican softball practice.

Yes, and that was awful.

Wanting revenge on the left, also awful.

What about Johnny Depp and other Hollyweird celebs who called for the assassination of Trump?





If the "great leader" says something like Johnny Depp said, it´s "great".
If the "great leader" is attacked with his own weapons, the main snowflake and his supporting snowflakes start to melt...

Can't possibly be my actual opinion right?


That's the most worrisome part.

MAYBE now that Obama is GONE gun sales are down?

So without the "He's coming for YOUR guns!" threat...

A NEW fear mongering narrative is being PUSHED?

It's a DANGEROUS game, NRA...borderline advocating open civil war...


what video did you watch? The one in the OP was more of a recap of current news, with a little push for donations to the NRA it seemed.

Open civil war? I doubt it. But kudos for the effort.

Here be the 7 Stages of Hate Group. Stage 6 was already in full effect one year ago with the SJW's rioting the Trump rallies and with the Dallas shooting. Stage 7 went into effect by summers end when the SJW's joined their BLM brethren in burning down cities. Things only intensified post-election.


Stages of Hate
Stage 1: Grouping
- They feel compelled, almost driven, to entreat others to hate as they do. Peer validation bolsters a sense of self-worth and, at the same time, prevents introspection, which reveals personal insecurities. Further, individuals who are otherwise ineffective become empowered when they join groups, which also provide anonymity and diminished accountability.

Stage 2: Defining
– Hate groups form identities through symbols, rituals, and mythologies, which enhance the members’ status and, at the same time, degrade the object of their hate. For example, skinhead groups may adopt the swastika, the iron cross, the Confederate flag, and other supremacist symbols. Group-specific symbols or clothing often differentiate hate groups. Group rituals, such as hand signals and secret greetings, further fortify members.

Stage 3: Disparaging
– Hate is the glue that binds haters to one another and to a common cause. By verbally debasing the object of their hate, haters enhance their self-image, as well as their group status. In skinhead groups, racist song lyrics and hate literature provide an environment where hate flourishes. In fact, researchers have found that the life span of aggressive impulses increases with ideation. In other words, the more often a person thinks about aggression, the greater the chance for aggressive behavior to occur.

Stage 4: Taunting
– Hate, by its nature, changes incrementally. Time cools the fire of hate, thus forcing the hater to look inward. To avoid introspection, haters use ever-increasing degrees of rhetoric and violence to maintain high levels of agitation. Tauntsand offensive gestures serve this purpose. In this stage, skinheads typically shout racial slurs from moving cars or from afar. Nazi salutes and other hand signals often accompany racial epithets.

Stage 5: Attacking without weapons
– This stage is critical because it differentiates vocally abusive haters from physically abusive ones. In this stage, hate groups become more aggressive, prowling their turf seeking vulnerable targets. Violence coalesces hategroups and further isolates them from mainstream society.

Each successive anger- provoking thought or action builds on residual adrenaline and triggers a more violent response than the one that originally initiated the sequence. Anger builds on anger. The adrenaline high combined with hate becomes a deadly combination.

Stage 6: Attacking with weapons
– Some attackers use firearms to commit hate crimes, but skinheads prefer weapons such as broken bottles, baseball bats, blunt objects,screwdrivers, and belt buckles. These types of weapons require the attacker to be close tothe victim, which further demonstrates the depth of personal anger. Attackers can discharge firearms at a distance, thus precluding personal contact. Close-in onslaughts require the assailants to see their victim eye-to-eye and to become bloodied during the assault. Hands-on violence allows skinheads to express their hate in a way a gun cannot. Personal contact empowers and fulfills a deep-seated need to have dominance over others.

Stage 7: Destroying
– The ultimate goal of haters is to destroy the object of their hate.Mastery over life and death imbues the hater with godlike power and omnipotence,which, in turn, facilitate further acts of violence. With this power comes a great sense of self-worth and value, the very qualities haters lack. However, in reality, hate physically and psychologically destroys both the hater and the hated.

Storer replied that “the left isn't urging people to buy guns to start a revolution.”

Lmao it's amazing how people can be so trapped in their own world view that they fail to see the glaring hypocrisy in what they're saying... I agree with here that there is way too much hate coming from both sides but to plainly ignore all the violence coming from the left lately is completely absurd, if anyone is trying to invoke a civil war it's them. The right already won, they have no reason to fight.

That are a lot of capitalized words there...you seem upset about an organization who did nothing but speak about what had been happening. If you do not see the division that was created and trying to be pushed you are choosing to stay blind to it.

A recruitment video? For what? A group of people who want to maintain their constitutional rights? I heard no call to violence like I did from a recent video from an ex Attorney General who said 'resist'. Or two ex first ladies who said resist? Resist your own government?

THAT deserves come caps because telling people to resist their own government leads to treason and acts like the House Members being shot.

Glad to send them my money each year...get cool hats and stuff.

great add. Sad that it's true, and really makes you think about how far the left has gone. It seems the NRA is looking for money with this add. I'm not sure what your beef with it is, other than it likely hits a bit close to home.



The NRA is just trying to,keep the number of panic buyers high. They made bank the past 8 years they want that to continue so they pedal doom porn.

After looking into this subject briefly it seems there's a very coordinated plan by some group(s) to attack this video. The ad was actually first uploaded online back in April, it just suddenly received a great deal of attention recently. Several pundits have picked it up and it seems like hoards of people are disliking any video trying to defend the advert, or Google is actively applying false dislikes, which I honestly wouldn't doubt, although I don't think I've seen it happen before.


The reaction to this is insane Tucker, I'm talking over video clips which show actual leftist violence; rioting, property damage, arson, physical assault, and apparently me condemning violence is what's inciting and dividing America.

Well what's funny is, the tape is like a bunch of rich white kids setting fire to stuff... ahaha... so you're defending white supremacy for attacking which rich white kids for burning stuff, I mean it's insane.

Yes, it's the goofiest thing ever.

Ex-CIA, thats cute. That should always throw up a red flag. And what they said in the commercial about Obama and co trying to stir up violent opposition is absolutely correct. So...

Whos recruiting violent extremists? Well, antifa, blm, and other various red guard neo-commie affiliates.

Im kind of center-libertarian, so i dont have a vested right wing interest. I need to put that in my sig. Seems like i have to say that half the time now just so im not grouped in as right wing or left wing in a failed attempt to rebuff a non-partisan perspective.

That video seems pretty spot on, to me.

"They" are controlling the media and the schools, and they are playing the long game- get the kids, they're the adults of tomorrow.
I saw it when I was growing up, too. I didn't realize I was part of it, I only saw how much more they were pushing the kids younger than me, year after year. That means "they" are going to have more support with each passing year, and they are already just about to the point of bringing this nation to it's knees.

Should be an interesting second half, I'm feeling over the hill.

The ad packs a punch. I don't know what it has to do with gun rights. It seems it's intended to pit one group against another, referring to one side as the "other" who aren't "one of us".

Creepy music, too.

I think that immediate impression is the subtext conclusion they were hoping others would arrive at. "Scary liberals outnumber you, buy a gun, and prepare to defend yourselves".

Subtext, eh?

Since absolutely nothing like that was said in the ad.... you have to make it up, and tell us what it really said.

Watching that video prompted me to buy a membership to the NRA, it's only 40 bucks.
I just want to say thank you to whoever posted this video.

Saying it multiple times isn't going to make it any truer.

It's fairly obvious, by now, that you've no clue about what you're talking about. This is merely an exercise in rhetorical flourishes and opinion--in no way should it be considered fact.

To equate a special interest group, who's next head they chop off will be the first, with something like Daesh is patently absurd.

But do carry on, maybe if you use more all caps that'll help...
