Skip to comments.Anti-gun sports columnist Jason Whitlock: ‘The NRA Is the New KKK’ [AUDIO]
Posted on 12/04/2012 11:34:53 AM PST by neverdem
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.
Thomas Jefferson wrote some unkind words about blacks, and then this idiot Whitless tries to prove him right.
It appears to me that Jovan Belcher, after a night of drinking and whoring, had decided to kill the mother of his child when he entered her residence. He could have accomplished this goal with his hands, a fireplace poker, a knife, a car, scissors, a pillow, or whatever means he chose, including drowning her in the bathtub.
If the woman Jovan decided to kill had kept a gun nearby and had known how to use it properly, she could have saved her own life.
Just another useful idiot/useless waste of oxygen.
The interesting thing is that these comments (and those of Costas) make obvious the liberal lie that “nobody wants to take away your guns—we just want a few reasonable gun laws”. The “few reasonable gun laws” line doesn’t square with saying “if he didn’t have a gun” or insisting that gun ownership is against the interests of African-Americans.
He may have a point here.
I lived a good portion of the ‘history’ he has NEVER been taught.
True the Klan etal were R’s for the most part but I distinctly remember in the 50’s/60’s that those nasty Sheriffs and Governors, such as Orville Faubus, Bull Connor, Lester Maddox and countless hundreds of card carrying REPUBLICAN officials mounted attacks on blacks for being black and not much more, barred them from schools and colleges and that great DEMOCRAT President Dwight D. Eisenhower dispatched troops to ensure Federal Law was carried out, thus ‘starting’ the Civil Rights movement.
(THIS shouldn’t be necessary) S/S/S Sarc
Jim Crow laws were all passed by Democrat majorities.
Most KKK members were / are Democrats.
Jim Byrd, (WV-D) was a long-standing member of the KKK.
The "dangerous street culture" is pimped to the "community" by hustlers named Russell Simmons and other producers and publishers of so-called "gangsta" rap where the performers are openly encouraged to pad out their resume with bogus claims of how many times "they got shot", how many "bitches" pull money for them, how much weed they smoke/sell, etc.
Pimps learn that the first thing they have to do is break the whore's spirit by making her forget that slavery ever ended.
Democrats love "the community" in despair and dependent on a weekly handout without a daddy in the home.
And this nutjob has the balls to say the NRA is doing the work of the KKK (which was founded by Democrats to wage a second civil war in the South during Reconstruction and beyond).
If Andrea Yates didn’t have access to a bathtub, her kids would still be alive/s
If a few Muslims armed with box cutters weren’t allowed on four jets, three thousand people would still be alive today.
Poll finds New Yorkers convinced of climate change If you didn't check the 3 Youtubes in comment# 35, check them out.
Some noteworthy articles about politics, foreign or military affairs, IMHO, FReepmail me if you want on or off my list.
What exactly are you accusing us, The NRA, of doing? Arming black youths and loading up communities with drugs? What kind of a clueless moron are you, Jason?
More useless to America than a parasitic professional jock is a sports writer dreaming up worthless drivel. A black sports writer is especially useless as a propagandist introducing racial overtones to flavor his otherwise bland specious blather.
It’s the KKK who is responsible for most of the bad gun laws that were enacted in the 1920’s. Idiot.
I am fairly sure I have traveled, lived and worked abroad and for much longer and in far more countries than Jason Whitlock would ever do if he lived to be a hundred years old, and I can safely say that this statement of his, is the most idiotic statement I have heard for a very long time. It has nothing to do with reality, and is typical of ignorant(of foreign cultures/countries) African Americans who (falsely) believe that living in some other country would somehow, magically solve all their (mostly self inflicted problems), and don't realize how lucky they are to be living in America, and enjoying the freedoms all Americans do.
Rather than face the degeneration of his own racial culture he blames the tools they use to kill each other...and us.
and blacks themselves as usual have no responsibility for themselves..simply bouncing through life like the ball in a pinball machine soaring or collapsing at the whim of the omnipresent white man
and O'Reilly and Goldberg called this guy a respected columnist at this local paper...boy who did background for those two night before last?
I'd have their head
Seems like Whitlock is proving that not all the brain damage in this country is confined to NFL & NHL activities.
When the chaos starts, he may be an early target.
I'd have their head
LOL! Either FNC has been infiltrated or they went out of their way to hire a bunch of saps.
Thanks for the ping!
Whitlock’s just doing the job the KKK started. Gun control wasn’t ever about whites, but blacks. It was a focused attempt, originating in the racist post-Civil War South, to disarm blacks.
Gun control is racist. As is our welfare system which destroyed the black family and replaced daddies with Uncle Sugar.
