As the political-class in the United States prepare for the upcoming congressional and senatorial elections in November, the Democratic Party is apparently starting to face the reality that the Trump-Russian Collusion conspiracy investigation is falling apart at the seams. So Democratic Party leaders such as Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz have apparently decided to go back to an original tactic from their left-wing playbook: Attack the GOP using issues such as gun control, abortion, and immigration.
Despite the fact that gun control rarely works for the Democrats, Wasserman-Schultz with her “in your face” style has begun comparing the National Rifle Association (NRA) with a reasonable facsimile of a terrorist organization.
Wasserman-Schultz will never be mistaken as a fan of the gun rights organization, and she’s more than happy to crank up the rhetoric used to describe the people her friend Hillary Clinton called “the deplorables.”
“The NRA is kind of just shy of a terrorist organization. They have done everything they can to perpetuate the culture of violence that we have in our country with the spread of assault weapons across the nation,” she told the left-wing commentary website Huntington Post.
Not satisfied to merely rail against a large conservative organization, she also attacked recently-appointed NRA President Oliver North. The former Marine officer, who made a name for himself as a member of the Ronald Reagan staff, warned Americans that gun rights are facing the strongest opposition to a civil right since the Jim Crow era by suggesting the NRA is actually responsible for mass murder.
“People that are dying as a result of the infection that is the spread of assault weapons thanks to the NRA are being murdered in cold blood without any cessation or interest on the part of the NRA to do anything about it,” said Wasserman-Schultz.
Schultz has been attempting to re-invent herself after being accused of helping Hillary Clinton to steal the Democratic Party nomination for president from Sen. Bernie Sanders, the self-avowed socialist.
In addition, she was caught flat-footed when whistleblower Julian Assange leaked DNC emails which revealed Wasserman-Schultz’s hanky-panky in the service of then-Democratic primary candidate Hillary Clinton.
When an armed student at the Parkland, Florida school murdered 20 students in one of the worst mass-shootings in history, Wasserman-Schultz began to immediately use her position to organize and promote anti-gun Parkland students, and conducted the first steps in a media blitz that would drive unprecedented discussion about the Second Amendment.
However, her actions and words backfired and helped the NRA to increase its membership and its available budget to combat negative news stories.
