Skip to comments.Anti-gun sports columnist Jason Whitlock: ‘The NRA Is the New KKK’ [AUDIO]

On CNN contributor Roland Martins podcast posted to his website Monday, Jason Whitlock, the columnist who inspired Bob Costas commentary on gun control during halftime of Sundays Dallas Cowboys-Philadelphia Eagles game on NBC, revealed his peculiar take on the National Rifle Association (NRA).
Whitlock spoke out against the NFLs handling of the aftermath of Jovan Belchers suicide and gun issues in his Sunday FoxSports.com column. During Martins podcast, he likened the NRA to the Ku Klux Klan and tied the group to the dangerous street culture that unfortunately dominates “so many black youths.”
Sports gets so much attention, and people tune out the real world, that I try to take advantage of the opportunity to talk about the real world when sports lends itself to that and try to open peoples eyes, Whitlock said.
You know, I did not go as far as Id like to go because my thoughts on the NRA and Americas gun culture — I believe the NRA is the new KKK. And that the arming of so many black youths, uh, and loading up our community with drugs, and then just having an open shooting gallery, is the work of people who obviously dont have our best interests [at heart].
Whitlock disagreed with the idea that gun ownership enhances liberty, explaining how — in his view — it damages society.
I think its obvious if youve traveled abroad, and traveled to countries where they have legitimate gun laws, that we dont have to have what we have in America, where people somehow think a gun enhances their liberty, and that people somehow think a gun makes them safer, he continued.
It just doesnt..."

Jason “The Lardass” Whitlock is the new Jabba the Hutt.
Looks like a new media push is on. I wonder will it stay confined to sports, or will it use all media outlets?
The New KKK would be your Democrat Party's Holy Grail, Planned Parenthood!
Planned Parenthood has killed more BLACKS since Obama took office than the KKK killed in its history.
They’re certainly smarter than the KKK, if this was all part of the plan. At least someone’s admitting black people are killing the black people, even though it’s secretly white people controlling the black people killing the black people. Run tell Jackson and Sharpton.
By the way, why did black youths fall for this nefarious plot?
And yet, the anti’s are the ones trying to infringe on Civil Rights, not the NRA. I’d say it’s Brady and her crew that are more like the KKK than anything.
Hands can be used to strangle. Cut them off.
Sue the sumb*tch.
Those aren't the work of the NRA, they are the self-inflicted wounds of what passes for black pop culture.
The NRA is about safeguarding everyone's Right, not arming gangstas, selling drugs, or turning streets into shooting galleries.
Jason, just stick to what you know, whatever that is.
“people somehow think a gun makes them safer”
“Somehow”? It wouldn’t have anything to do with that projectile that pops out and injures or kills people stronger than you, would it? Jokes on them, haha, because me and Jason know bullets always boomerang back at you. Tricky suckers!
And Jason Fatlock is the new Stepin Fetchit
No such thing as a bad boy...just bad guns.
Yeah tell that to all people who fight off home invasions only because they possess a firearm. Stupid libz
If those who understand--really understand--The Right To Keep & Bear Arms were to threaten to start a boycott of Sunday Night Football sponsors, it might stop this sort of thing--at least for the moment.
Gotta keep a little spotlight on yourself in the spirit of President Mom Jeans?
Well, the NRA was “All In” for the election. Wonder if they have the energy to fight what will be a mountain of slander coming back at them after the loss.
But The Republicans freed the slaves.
The KKK was/is the terrorist wing of the Democrat Party.
If a black man had a gun he could defend himself against
the Terrorist wing of the Democrat Party : the KKK
It was the Democrat KKK who kept blacks from owning guns.
Sorry; that is the History of the United States of America.
So if blacks forfeit their rights they’ll be protected from themselves.
So is he OK with laws that just prohibit blacks from owning guns? You know, like the Democrats passed at the behest of the Klan.
This idiot needs a dose of hard, cold truth right in the face. The NRA isn't "arming" black kids and "loading them up" with drugs. (Poor, passive, victimized things! They never do anything themselves; it's always someone doing it TO them). These young thugs are making their own choices based on lack of family life, no fathers around to teach them how to be men, and no moral upbringing.
BTW, this is the guy Bernie Goldberg called an excellent columnist.
