The NRA’s new president has raised a few eyebrows with a speech he made at the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association’s annual meeting last June, which is now coming to light.
In the somewhat rambling speech, Jim Porter referred to the Civil War as the “war of Northern Aggression” and went on to call Barack Obama a “fake president” whose administration is operates on a doctrine of “anti-freedom.”
“The NRA was started, 1871, right here in New York state. It was started by some Yankee generals who didn’t like the way my southern boys had the ability to shoot in what we call the ‘War of Northern Aggression,’” Porter said.
Porter went on to say that the NRA remains a vital organization for civilians because “when they’re ready to fight tyranny, they’re ready to do it. […] Also, when they’re ready to fight tyranny, they have the wherewithal and the weapons to do it.”
Porter’s focus then turned to President Obama. “I get so sick and tired of all these people with this fake president that we got, who wants to say ‘he hasn’t done anything bad for gun owners.’ I say, let me tell you something that he’s done. His entire administration is anti-gun, anti-freedom, anti-Second Amendment.”
