New York Post, Daily News Blast NRA Speech (PHOTOS)

Two New York tabloid newspapers on Saturday sharply criticized NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre's Friday press conference, during which he called for armed guards to be installed in every school in America.

Here's the Post:



And the Daily News:

(Murdoch wants tighter gun control so I guess that might be the reason for the Post's blasting of the NRA speech)

After Gun-Control Talk Reportedly Banned on Fox News, Murdoch Turns to the Post

(snip)
The paper's stance may come as a surprise to those who typically associate Murdoch's News Corporation publications with conservative-leaning right-wing ideology. Equally as surprising, Murdoch may have wanted to open up dialogue about gun-control on his Fox News cable network as well. It's just that his employee, Roger Ailes, president of Fox News Channel, apparently said no.
(snip)
Regardless of whose call it was to limit gun-control talk on Fox News, the Post editorial is quite clear in its stance:

1. Wacko Wayne (R)

Yet further evidence of the pathetic degeneration of the Republican party. THESE PEOPLE need help.

4. Strangely enough...

yesterday, went to the store. Parking choices limited. Parked next to a Honda. Noticed an NRA sticker and a sticker with an assualt rifle warning all that we would be enslaved if we didn't own one.

There was also an anti-theft device on the steering wheel. Car theft is not common in our area.

These poor people live in a terribly scary world of Fox News' making.

6. That's it ...

They are too old to hang onto their dicks in fear*, so they go for guns!



*I never had a son of my own, but a good friend's son, when he was 2-4 y.o., used to hold onto his penis a lot. I've noticed other little boys act similarly. I do believe gun fetish is related - an adult extension! And your post supports that!

10. Shocking, isn't it?

Especially given that The Post is a Murdoch rag. I'll be far more shocked if we start hearing this kind of stuff on his "news" network, however.

20. Yeah... Faux is a whole 'nother ball game.

Still, I'm impressed by these papers. Putting their "classy," 300-pt headlines to good use for a change.

NRA loon indeed. It is scary to think this nut has guns. Worse yet, he has our politicians.

11. Thanks "St. Ronnie"

Every single day the Murdoch empire rots the United States a little bit more. You let this vile trash and his sycophantic followers into our media culture and your FCC paved the way for both the creation of the "corporate" media and Murdoch's mercenary media, may you and your followers rot and burn for eternity plus......

15. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT!

Crazy Wayne wants us to believe NRA cares and has a good solution, that of armed guards at each school...like let me see, oh I know, Columbine, or UVTech, or The Army base in TX, Ft. Hood...wait a minute, those armed guards did not stop jack! Plus the USA has more than 11,000 homicides by guns each year and most are not in schools...so is Crazy Wayne just Crazy? Or is he just Evil? Either way is rotten, the NYC papers got it right.

24. Damn! Even the freakin' P.O.S.T.

That right wing rag is only published so that folks in NYC have something to wrap fish in.
Even that useless paper condemned Wacky Wayne.
That's amazing!
