New president of NRA is a neo-Confederate who still resents what he calls the War of Northern Aggression
Wow! The best casting director in Hollywood couldn’t have come up with a better stereotype than THIS GUY:
The new president of the NRA is a good ol’ Southern boy, who sounds even crazier than the group’s gun-nut mouthpiece Wayne LaPierre.
Alabama lawyer Jim Porter [above] has called U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder “rabidly un-American” and proudly spews the Confederate line on the Civil War.
In a June speech, Porter noted the NRA was “started by some Yankee generals who didn’t like the way my Southern boys had the ability to shoot in what we call the ‘War of Northern Aggression.’ ”
“Now y’all might call it the Civil War, but we call it the ‘War of Northern Aggression’ down South,” Porter said to the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association.
He also advocates training all U.S. civilians to use standard military firearms so “they’re ready to fight tyranny.”
