MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough invoked the Oklahoma City bombing Friday while talking about the NRA’s rhetoric.
“As Kurt Anderson said, a turning point was in ‘94 with their jack-booted thugs attacks accusing our law enforcement officers of being like Nazis and black storm troopers, saying they wanted to kick down doors and kill Americans, seize their property. Again, just an out and out attack on America’s law enforcement officer,” he said.
“And of course, a few days after that vicious attack against our law enforcement officers we had Oklahoma City, the worst domestic terrorist attack ever. You have seen these NRA ads that they’re running now, which just comes close–pretty close to inciting violence.”
“There’s one where a guy took a sledgehammer to our image and it is intended to incite extremists. And I just wonder how long Paul Ryan and the rest of the Republican Party can comfortably blindly follow these people, even on an issue like bump stocks.” (RELATED: MSNBC’s Scarborough Labels Opponents Of Gun Control ‘Domestic Terrorist Enablers’ And ‘Useful Idiots’)
