New NRA President Carolyn Meadows Has THOUGHTS On Race, And She's Ready To Share!
You may have your "data," but Carolyn Meadows has GUNS. The brand new NRA president has lived 80 years on God's green earth, and she knows a thing or two. So you can come to her with your fancy studies and surveys and whathaveyous, and she'll just use 'em for target practice. Did scientists and statisticians ever keep America safe? Carolyn Meadows thinks NOT.
For instance, pollsters may tell you that 67 percent of Americans favor stricter gun laws and that the NRA is only viewed favorably by 37 percent of us. But Carolyn Meadows tells the Marietta Daily Journal that's just because of Democrat lies:
"Basically, it's through ignorance that a lot of people, and not stupidity at all, but they don't know what we're about," she said of those against the NRA. "If you could get to every person out there, eyeball to eyeball, we'd have 50 million NRA members. A lot of Democrats believe like we do, but they've been misguided with the poor leadership at the helm of their party."
Sure you can cite studies showing that people with guns in their homes are almost twice as likely to be murdered as people without. And you might point to those depraved socialist wastelands in Northern Europe as proof of the proposition that people are safer when they don't all walk around with murder sticks strapped to their hips. But Carolyn Meadows is darn sure that an 80-year-old lady packing heat makes her church a safe place to worship white Jesus on a Sunday:
"I believe in arming teachers. Absolutely. In my church, I'm armed. My pastor is a shooter, a hunter, he knows I am, people in the congregation do," she says. "This is not NRA position, but as far as I'm concerned, I'd love to have a sign out front: 'We have gun-toting teachers and security.' (Mass shooters) go where the people are weak."
And you can say that women are fleeing the Republican party because of its radical pro-gun and anti-healthcare stances, with 64 percent ruling out a vote for Trump in 2020. But Carolyn Meadows knows this is all just hooey. And she's going to prove it this year right there in Marietta:
Meadows' own backyard will be part of the political battlefield as she and other right-leaning groups target U.S. Rep. Lucy McBath, D-Marietta, who represents Georgia's Sixth Congressional District. Last year, McBath unseated then-incumbent Karen Handel, R-Roswell, who has announced her intention to run for the seat again.
"There will be more than one person in the race, but we'll get that seat back," Meadows said. "But it is wrong to say like McBath said, that the reason she won was because of her anti-gun stance. That didn't have anything to do with it — it had to do with being a minority female. And the Democrats really turned out, and that's the problem we have with conservatives — we don't turn out as well."
Well, bless her heart! Going full racist her first week on the job. The NRA must be so grateful to Mrs. Meadows for changing the topic from Wayne LaPierre's alleged fiscal mismanagement to the new president's naked bigotry.
Carolyn Meadows, who chaired the all-white board which blocked addition of a memorial to Martin Luther King Jr. at the Stone Mountain Memorial Confederate monument, has certainly lived up to the hype. Were you expecting a woman who hasn't changed her hairstyle since 1953 and longs for the good old days when everyone knew their place? Then you will not be disappointed by the woman who sanctifies the ground where the KKK relaunched itself in 1915!
Lucy McBath didn't eke out a 1 percent win over Karen Handel in 2018 because Georgia-06 has been trending Democratic for a decade, and Donald Trump was the final straw. Not at all!

It couldn't possibly be that Rep. McBath's personal story of losing her son to gun violence resonated with people sick and tired of worrying their kids will get shot because the NRA wants to arm every lunatic in the country and pretend it makes us all safer. Nope, it's that old racism against white people rearing its ugly head again. When will the poor white man be able to get a fair shake in America?
Oh, you don't have to take Carolyn Meadows's word for it. Just ask God!
"I would not have taken this job if I didn't feel like I could save this country. That's obvious, I'm not young. … My husband said, 'Your whole life has led you to this point.' And he said, 'If you don't do it, you dishonor God,'" Meadows said, adding that she defines herself as "not a religious person — I'm a Christian," and is a member of Crosspointe Community Church in Roswell.
Okay, Grandma. That's enough from you for today -- it's probably time to go scrub off the Max Factor residue before Wapner comes on. Clearly the NRA is in capable hands, and all their days of scandal and embarrassment are a thing of the past.
