The NRA raised the “clenched fist of truth” against The Washington Post in a new video calling out the publication for promoting the “violent left.”
The National Rifle Association video, released Monday, called the Post a “fake news outlet” and accused the newspaper of attacking Second Amendment gun rights and “doing damage to the country.”
“Your paper’s new slogan may read ‘Democracy Dies in Darkness’ — it should say ‘Journalism Dies at The Washington Post,’ ” conservative talk show host Grant Stinchfield said in the video.

The Post criticized recent NRA videos in a piece last week complaining that the organization, which boasts more than five million members, was addressing issues other than guns.
“They tell us we can’t have an opinion unless it’s about guns,” Stinchfield responded in the video, addressing the newspaper and “every leftist media propaganda machine defending the violent left.”
“Listen to me Washington Post,” he said. “We talk about more than guns because every freedom is connected. If one is threatened, they all are threatened, and the organized anarchy that you, and your politicians and your activists are pushing is destroying our country.”
Critics of the organization last month had a meltdown over the video release featuring NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch condemning liberal demonstrators who “smash windows, burn cars, shut down interstates and airports.”

“The Washington Post isn’t mad about the lack of guns, it’s mad about an abundance of truth — the truth about their role in the organized anarchy of the violent left by spreading lies about those who disagree with their radical agenda,” Stinchfield said, slamming the Post which has “tarnished gun owners in an effort to take away our Second Amendment freedoms.”
He vowed that the NRA “will never stop fighting the violent left on the battlefield of truth.”
“Here’s a suggestion for The Washington Post: Don’t worry about how many guns are in our videos. Worry about how many facts are in your articles,” Stinchfield concluded.
“Because if gun owners abused our Second Amendment the way you abuse your paper and the First Amendment, our rights would have been taken away long ago,” he said. “You people do more to damage our country with a keyboard than any NRA member has ever done combined with a firearm.”
