Why are so many media journalists anti-TEA Party, anti-Second Amendment, anti-Bill of Rights? Consider journalism professor Christopher Swindell who teaches at taxpayer-funded Marshall University in West Virginia.
Mr. Swindell falsely claims in an essay the NRA “advocates armed rebellion against the duly elected government of the United States of America” further defaming us as guilty of “treason” “worthy of the firing squad.”
“To support the new NRA president’s agenda of arming the populace for confrontation with the government is bloody treason,” his rant continues.
His unreasonable, ignorant rant gets even lower, but I spare you the insults.
Below are comments from the website RateMyProfessors.com
“Angry little lonely boy, he is full of hatred and vitriol. Scary guy, could be unhinged any minute. Marshall University and the students deserve better.”
“He is off the chart crazy and should be fired for wanting gun owners, conservatives, and members of NRA executed by the military. He’s a blight on the reputation of Marshall U!”
My response to leftist journalism professor Swindell:
Mr. Swindell, I am the NRA. I am a veteran twice over, first a Vietnam-era Naval veteran and a civilian Vietnam war veteran. I love my country and I cherish the liberty we all share that allows even ignorant persons like you to speak defamatory and public slanders against over 5,000,000 of my fellow patriots, many of whom are called The Greatest Generation, others veterans of numerous wars from Bosnia to Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan and Grenada.
We, the NRA membership, pay taxes that support the likes of you. Unlike you and your kind, we daily fight to uphold the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
Your mindless, ignorant rant suggests violations of almost the entire Bill of Rights, along with several Articles of the U.S. Constitution. You, sir, are a prime example of why the liberal mainstream media fails to inform the people of facts instead of your biased opinions.
Now, to my fellow patriots: Thomas Jefferson foresaw such abuses of the public media. In fact, biased media is not a new invention, there is just an imbalance between the false and the true.
“The firmness with which the people have withstood the abuses of the press, the discernment they have manifested between truth and falsehood, show that they may safely be trusted to hear everything true and false, and to form a correct judgment between them.” — Thomas Jefferson, 1804
