Colion Noir: Politicians, Media Guilty Of Most Despicable Form Of Racism
by A1F Daily Staff - Friday, July 15, 2016
NRA News Commentator Colion Noir isn’t buying the shameful media’s abusive use of the word “racism.” In a powerful new NRA ad, “Real Solutions,” Noir asserts true racism lies in the fact that deceitful politicians allow gangs to terrorize America’s inner cities when they could clean up the streets by simply enforcing the law: “Remove the jobs. Break the schools. Pull back the police. Let the streets flood with drugs. Let violent gangs recruit child soldiers and terrorize neighborhoods. Don’t prosecute gun crimes.”
Noir’s new commentary comes after a week of divisive rhetoric from media and anti-Second Amendment elitists, who’ve used tragedies as tools to further their own selfish agendas. Al Sharpton has been among the most shameful, telling a room of African-Americans that the NRA believes “the Second Amendment is for whites only.” Noir hit back against Sharpton’s deceit, as well as race-baiting statements from media figures like Don Lemon, Chris Hayes and Russell Simmons, with the release of “Media Fans Flames of Racism” this past Sunday.
In his new commentary, Noir makes clear that every American would be better served if politicians and media members stopped fanning the flames of racism and instead focused on fixing the epidemic of violence in our inner cities: “What has been allowed to happen in our inner cities is an absolute disgrace. If the same epidemic of poverty, gang violence and broken schools poisoned the neighborhoods of the nation’s political class, you’d better believe they’d be talking about real solutions, not gun control.”
“Real Solutions,” is the latest in the NRA’s nationally successful "Freedom’s Safest Place campaign". The campaign features ads that tell powerful stories and send honest messages about freedom, the threat of radical Islamic terror, American values, and our God-given right to defend ourselves and our families with a firearm. In addition to Noir, commentaries feature Dana Loesch, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke and Veteran U.S. Navy SEAL Dom Raso.
