National Rifle Association Invests In The Art Of Propaganda

Wonkette unearthed a “super-secret advance copy” of the gun lobby’s latest propaganda piece.

As the GOP learned last month, and you need some Grade A propaganda to get people riled up again. Let no one accuse the NRA of shirking its duty. Freedom In Peril: Guarding the 2nd Amendment in the 21st Century, is a spectacularly beautiful graphic novel. Here, for example, is one of the biggest threats to the white suburban hunter: dirty hippies and their evil sidekicks: the dynamite-carrying owl, sinister pig, angry Wall Street bull, dire wolf, terror chicken and Land Lobster.

  1. Don’t buy your tickets to the propaganda war just yet…
    And a follow-up:

  2. Oops, forgot to include this:
    The short of it: it’s likely the publication is real (still to be confirme), but Wonkette’s descriptions were less-than truthful.
    And it’s more like a pamphlet with illustrations rather than a graphic novel.

  3. I think this is cruddy, Im one of those dirty hippies. We get more shit then anyone else!
