The San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted unanimously this week to adopt a declaration, written by District 2 Supervisor Catherine Stefani, designating the National Rifle Association, the nation's oldest civil rights organization, a domestic terrorist organization.
District 2 Supervisor Catherine Stefani wrote the scathing declaration reading in part, "the National Rifle Association spreads propaganda that misinforms and aims to deceive the public about the dangers of gun violence."
"The NRA has it coming to them, and I will do everything that I possibly can to call them out on what they are, which is a domestic terrorist organization," said Stefani.
She is a leader and spokesperson for Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, which aims to reform gun laws.
Well, that explains it.
NRA: a terrorist organization with a kill count of zero
The National Rifle Association, a group that, according to Stefani, "knowingly puts guns into the hands of those who would harm and terrorize us," has had its members perpetrators of exactly zero mass shootings.
Worst terrorist group ever.
But what the San Franciso Board of Supervisors is really doing with this designation is the ultimate in virtue-signaling: These are people whom we hate.
It's telling that this declaration came just a couple weeks after they were in the news for their desire to use George Orwell's rapidly rotating corpse as source of clean, renewable energy.
In a proposal to the city and county of San Francisco, words like “felon,” “offender,” “convict” and “parolee” would be swapped for what’s described as people-first language — phrases that strip any objectification or pejorative descriptions for more neutral and positive descriptors.
Some examples include changing “felon” and “offender” to “returning resident” or “formerly incarcerated person.” A “parolee” could be described as a “person under supervision.” “Convict” could be referred to as a “currently incarcerated person,” while a “juvenile offender” or “delinquent” would be described as a “young person impacted by the justice system.”
Catherine Stefani fiddles while Rome burns
As the NRA noted in a response to the terrorist organization designation, San Francisco has more pressing things to worry about than a gun safety organization that has helped cut the number of accidental gun deaths in half over the past two decades.
"This ludicrous stunt by the Board of Supervisors is an effort to distract from the real problems facing San Francisco, such as rampant homelessness, drug abuse and skyrocketing petty crime, to name a few. The NRA will continue working to protect the constitutional rights of all freedom-loving Americans," the organization said.
San Francisco is the only major metropolitan city that has such a huge problem with feces that they've made an app for that.
Despite declaring the NRA a domestic terrorist group, you can be sure that the board of supervisors, as much of they'd like to, won't be taking any further steps. Identifying employees or city or county contractors who are members and subjecting them to the sort of scrutiny and opprobrium that Los Angeles has attempted is sure to result in yet another lawsuit that the supervisors will undoubtedly lose.
