Wayne LaPierre: ‘One of America’s greatest threats is the national news media’
Apr. 27, 2014
National Rifle Association CEO Wayne LaPierre excoriated America’s journalists in a fiery speech opening the NRA’s annual convention, declaring that “one of America’s greatest threats is the national news media.”
LaPierre inaugurated the NRA Annual Meetings, held this year in Indianapolis, with an impassioned denouncement of the decline in long-held American principles, part of which was broadcast live Friday afternoon on MSNBC.
“You feel it in your heart,” he said. “You know it in your gut. Something has gone wrong. The core values that we believe in — the things we care about most — are changing, eroding.”
“In virtually every way, for the things we care about most, we feel profound loss,” he declared. “We’re sad. Not because we fear something is going wrong, but because we know something already has gone wrong.”
