The National Rifle Association is targeting The Washington Post with accusations of “organized anarchy” and attempts to take firearms away from gun owners
Conservative talk show host Grant Stinchfield stars in the NRA’s new video, where he denounces WaPo for doing “more damage to our country with a keyboard than every NRA member combined has ever done with a firearm.” Stinchfield goes on to blast the paper for “spreading lies about those who disagree with their radical agenda,” and he also mocked them for the tagline they adopted earlier this year.
“Your paper’s new slogan may read ‘Democracy Dies in Darkness.’ It should say ‘Journalism Dies at The Washington Post,’” said Stinchfield.
Stinchfield particularly slammed WaPo writer Alex Horton over an article where he questioned why the NRA is doing more to criticize the Left than talk about Second Amendment rights. Horton observed that there is a trend where right-leaning figures will attack and blame the left for political upheaval so they don’t have to go into the substance to defend their positions.
Here’s how Horton reacted to today’s video:
Well, @stinchfield1776 called this a "stern warning" to the Washington Post and me. Warning of what? https://t.co/Ctv5LPX78q

The NRA has been engaged in a back and forth with the media over the past several months. Earlier this year, NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch starred in a video where she blasted The New York Times as “fake news” and a “shill for the Left.” Since then, Loesch gave the Times an interview where she addressed the blowback she faced over a video where she called on viewers to fight left-leaning figures and institutions with the “clenched fist of truth,” pushing back against claims she was inciting violence.
