Wayne LaPierre: You Know The National Media Is Lying When They Call Themselves Journalists

by Jim Geraghty

National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre, now speaking to the NRA Annual Meeting’s Leadership Forum, held at the Lucas Oil Stadium:

“One hundred million gun owners will not back down, not now, not ever. Freedom has never needed our defense more than now.”

“The core values that we believe in the things we care about most are changing and eroding: our right to speak, our right to gather, our right to work, our right to practice our religion and raise our family and protect them they see fit.  Those aren’t old values or new values. They are core freedoms – the core values that have always defined us as a nation. And we feel them slipping away.”

“As I travel around this country, I hear it from people. They don’t say it with anger, they say it with sadness: ‘I’ve never been more worried about the future of my country than I am now.’”

“They try to regulate our religion, they give us Solyndra, Benghazi, massive unemployment, debt that will choke our grandchildren and one executive order after another.” 

He also ripped into the national press for covering up and downplaying the failures of elites and the Obama administration’s policies: “Here’s how you know they’re lying: they still keep calling themselves journalists.”
