Debbie Wasserman Schultz claims NRA ‘just shy of a terrorist organization’

In an obvious effort to foment hate and possibly violence against those with whom she disagrees, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz told the Huffington Post that the National Rifle Association (NRA) is “just shy of a terrorist organization.”

“The NRA is kind of just shy of a terrorist organization,” she claimed. “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.”

According to the Huffington Post, Wasserman Schultz was responding to a statement by Oliver North, the NRA’s new president, who criticized anti-gun students of Parkland’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School for using what he called “intimidation and harassment and lawbreaking.”

“They call them activists. That’s what they’re calling themselves. They’re not activists — this is civil terrorism,” the retired Marine said.

Her comments sparked quite a bit of criticism on social media.

Naturally, because the modern Democrat Party views “up” as “down” and evil as good.

Ouch.

Quite a few said that her attack on the NRA will only help the organization:

Naturally, her supporters agreed with her, with many going even farther than she did.

Wasserman Schultz and her followers didn’t go quite as far as this guy did, but at the rate things are going, it won’t be too much longer before we hear elected Democrats openly calling for the violent extermination of all NRA members.  And from what we’ve seen from the increasingly insane left, their followers will happily agree.

Wasserman Schultz, by the way, has come under increasing fire after it was revealed that ballots were illegally destroyed in her 2016 primary:

ee, Florida has some fairly strict “sunshine” laws when it comes to public transparency, and this spills over to elections. So, when Wasserman Schultz faced a difficult primary challenge in 2016 and won with 58 percent of the vote, it was well within the rights of challenger Tim Canova to request a recount of the ballots.

The only problem is that after much stalling, it turns out the ballots had been destroyed. As in, very illegally.

The saga has wound its way through the court system, but a judge ruled Friday that the “elections supervisor in Florida’s second-most populous county broke state and federal law by unlawfully destroying ballots cast in Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s 2016 Democratic primary … in a case brought by the congresswoman’s challenger who wanted to check for voting irregularities,” according to Politico.

Hmmm…
