This from a whackjob righty who claims the NRA is the nation’s oldest Civil Rights Group –
The Washington Post’s front-page Obama story on Friday includes a glaring error. Reporters Krissah Thompson and Cheryl Thompson began with a reference to Barack Obama’s first speech before the “nation’s oldest civil rights organization.”
This is a standard claim in stories on the NAACP, but it’s untrue – the NAACP just turned 100, but the National Rifle Association was founded in 1871. This is only true if “civil rights group” can only be used as an honorific synonym for “black interest group.” If the election of Obama ends one era of the “civil rights” struggle, can reporters stop using the “civil rights” tag just for black groups?
So what? If they dig up Moses (Charlton Heston) and make him President…
They going to stop using guns to kill people?
