Capitalizing on HoodieGate, the NRA demonstrates yet again that they have no shame, and won’t rest until every man, woman, child, and zygote is armed to the teeth:
We want concealed carry to fit around your lifestyle – not the other way around. That’s why we developed the NRAstore™ exclusive Concealed Carry Hooded Sweatshirt. It’s the only garment of its kind we know of! Made from a pre-shrunk, heavyweight 50% cotton / 50% polyester blend, we’ve taken a standard 9 oz. fleece sweatshirt design and added a full-body polyester lining for added warmth, durability, wind resistance and weight distribution. Inside the sweatshirt you’ll find left and right concealment pockets. The included Velcro®-backed holster and double mag pouch can be repositioned inside the pockets for optimum draw. Ideal for carrying your favorite compact to mid-size pistol, the NRA Concealed Carry Hooded Sweatshirt gives you an extra tactical edge, because its unstructured, casual design appears incapable of concealing a heavy firearm – but it does so with ease! Includes drawstring hood, cotton/spandex ribbed cuffs and waistband, two front pouch pockets and a discreet black zipper. Includes one Velcro® holster and one Velcro® mag pouch. Colors: Black, Navy. Made in USA.
Imagine if Trayvon Martin had also been carrying a weapon?
Maybe the way to get these gun-nuts to come to their senses is the fear of armed Negroes running willy-nilly across the nation.
Meanwhile, Geraldo tried desperately to de-stupid himself but manages, as expected, to re-stupid himself in the process:
Geraldo Rivera is apologizing for his “hoodie” remarks about Trayvon Martin that touched off a media firestorm last week, saying, “I have obscured the main point that someone shot and killed an unarmed teenager.”
“I apologize to anyone offended by what one prominent black conservative called my ‘very practical and potentially life-saving campaign urging black and Hispanic parents not to let their children go around wearing hoodies,’” Rivera said in an email to POLITICO Tuesday, citing a piece in the National Review penned by Thomas Sowell.
Rivera said that “by putting responsibility on what kids wear instead of how people react to them I have obscured the main point that someone shot and killed an unarmed teenager,” and that he was offering a “sincere and heartfelt apology” to anyone he may have offended in his “crusade to warn minority families of the danger to their young sons inherent in gangsta style clothing; like hoodies.”
Shorter Geraldo: I’m sorry if anyone was offended. Mistakes were made. But not really because Some Black Guy totally agrees with me; and besides minority parents, stop letting your children brazenly walk the streets outfitted in gangsta gear. Hoodies are murder! MURDER, I SAY. But seriously. I’m sorry — sorta. Did I mention that hoodies will totes get you killed? Also, they’re racist. Hoodies are The Real Racists™. Wait, what were we talking about?
Jesus, take the wheel and then stand your ground.
