Weer'd notes a highly ironic quote by our latest punching bag and Joyce Puppet over his belief that the lack of support for gun control is due to 'astro-turfing'.
So I popped on over to his blog and asked him a question about what he thought of political advocacy leaders posting as 'regular people' w/o acknowledging their connections. Well he apparently realized that it was a set up and refused to post the comment. Why? Because if he openly opposed it, then I would have had to have brought up some interesting bits of history of gun control.
Marsha McCartney: Texas Brady Campaign/MMM board member who posted on the old Brady Blog as 'Macca' yet vehemently denied she was associated w/ them.
Grits Jr.: CSGV employee caught using his boss' login after years of commenting obsequiously on various posts and editorials.
Dennis Henigan: While complaining that pro-gun supporters were trying to bury his book in Amazon reviews, a little research showed 1/3rd of the 5 star reviews were by professional gun control advocates. That continues.
And they still can't gather enough momentum to get more than 10 supporters on their own sites.
The truth hurts.
* For my newer readers, the term comes from when the Brady Campaign used to allow comments on their site. After several months of pro-rights individuals outnumbering their own people 10:1 and it being referred to as 'the best place for pro-gun information on the net', they started a series called 'Reasoned Discourse' allegedly highlighting how mean all us gunnies were. We immediately started wondering when they would shut down comments. It was a matter of days. They later went back and deleted all the comments.
