‘No one would know your names’: NRA host taunts Parkland teens over their dead classmates on eve of DC march

Published

on

The host of an online only NRA -TV show took the pains to attack the Parkland, Florida teens who are behind the massive march expected in Washington D.C. on Saturday, saying if their friends hadn’t died, no one would know or care about them.

In a clip posted to YouTube, host Colion Noir addressed the teens who now have a bigger megaphone than his occasional rantings posted online.

“To all the kids from Parkland getting ready to use your First Amendment to attack everyone else’s Second Amendment at your march on Saturday, I wish a hero like [Maryland’s Great Mills High School resource officer] Blaine [Gaskill] had been at Marjory Douglas High School last month,” Noir charged, adding, “Because your classmates would still be alive and no one would know your names. And because the media would have completely and utterly ignored your story the way they ignored his.”

During his diatribe, the NRA apologist also attacked the teens for being young,  and involved, stating Saturday’s march is “one-sided, logic-deprived, and intellectually dishonest” before dismissing it as “festival masquerading as a march.”

Further dismissing the students, the hyperbolic Noir accused the students of wanting to  “burn the Constitution and rewrite the parts that you all like in crayon.”

The NRA has been reeling from the pressure being put on them — including loss of sponsorship with companies that no longer want their name associated with with pro-gun group — leading the organization to sic their spokespeople after the teen survivors who witnessed 17 slaughtered at Marjory Douglas High School last month by a fellow student armed with an assault rifle.

A British TV news program gave airtime to a panel of white women named Karen who say they have been unfairly maligned.

In a segment on Monday, ITV's Morning Show talked to three women about "memes" that use their name as a slur.

"I just noticed a few memes and TikToks going on and it started of being quite funny," Karen Masters told the program. "And when the Black Lives Matter protests started, there was a lot of media putting Karen as racist. It sort of took on a life of its own."

"And I feel that we can't, as Karens, now talk about how it's affecting us because we are told that we're entitled if we do this," she continued. "So I set up a Change.org [petition] to show that this is not fair for us to have to put up with this."
