Jason Whitlock’s Publicity Stunt
I think Jason Whitlock is running a publicity stunt campaign. I think his original column on the Jovan Belcher shooting was a publicity stunt to get him attention, and it worked. Bob Costas, halftime, Sunday Night Football last night, quoted from Whitlock. So Whitlock — a PR master — now seeking to expand on his publicity stunt, apparently went on Roland Martin’s show today (wherever that is, wherever the Roland Martin show takes place) and Jason Whitlock said that the modern-day KKK is the NRA.
So Jason wants his name to remain in the public domain, and he wants to remain being talked about. He’ll engage in this publicity stunt, and we will oblige here at the EIB Network. Here’s what he said. It’s from NewsBusters.com, and here’s what he said this morning: “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 people’s eyes. You know, I did not go as far as I’d like to go because my thoughts on the NRA and America’s 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 don’t have our best interests [at heart].”
So Jason Whitlock, seeking to expand on his publicity stunt, is now saying that the NRA is arming black youths and, as a side business, funneling drugs into black neighborhoods so they wipe each other out. The NRA is encouraging people to shoot people who play loud music. The NRA is encouraging black football players to shoot their girlfriends, and the mothers of their children. I don’t believe even Jason Whitlock believes this. I mean, the fact of the matter is, the KKK represented the Democrat Party. The KKK was founded in the Democrat Party. It was white-on-black crime. The KKK committed their crimes against people who couldn’t defend themselves. The KKK committed their crimes against slaves and poor blacks who had no guns. If anything, the NRA is helping people defend themselves from bad guys by standing up for the Second Amendment.
