Media calls NRA chief ‘tired old white guy clinging to past’

A sure sign the left is losing a debate is when race becomes a key component of its argument, and a supportive media appears to have reached that point with gun control.

In an appearance Monday on MSNBC’s “NewsNation,” Politico reporter Lois Romano said National Rifle Association CEO Wayne LaPierre “is looking like a tired old white guy that is clinging on to something of the past,” the Washington Free Beacon reported.

It sounds eerily similar to what President Obama said while campaigning in 2008. Speaking of predominantly white voters in Pennsylvania and the Midwest who had become frustrated with economic conditions, he said then:

“And it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”
