Moms Demand Action Claims “Victory” That Never Happened. Again

Gh1AiT4

There’s a certain amount of schadenfreude that comes from seeing a mortal foe fail in such an amazingly public and obvious way. Slide Fire had a billboard in Chicago promoting their bumpfire stocks. The billboard is now gone. Moms Demand Action recently put the above image on their Facebook page, claiming credit. According to them, it was their pressure that brought about the billboard’s disappearance. However, thanks to a post on Facebook, we know the truth . . .

From Slide Fire Solutions:

We leased advertising space for the Chicago billboard to run for two months, and that time has come to an end. Removal of the billboard had nothing to do with negative pressure, but was simply due to the completion of the advertisement. We thank you all for your support, and encourage everyone to keep an eye out for more advertisements across the country in the coming months.

So, the Moms had no involvement whatsoever — Slide Fire simply didn’t renew the lease and the sign went down.

A few days ago, I believe it was one of the NRA’s boys that pointed out what’s going on. Moms Demand Action is losing relevancy and traction, and they’re thrashing around like a drowning swimmer trying to keep their collective head above water. They’re claiming any small victory they can, trying to prolong the inevitable slide beneath the waves and the slow and agonizing death that awaits them. That’s what happens when your “grassroots” lobbying organization has no actual significant public support — and is only sustained due to the largess of one sympathetic billionaire.

I’d just like to point out that the NRA has been around since 1871. Keep that in mind when Moms Demand Action disbands in a few years.

    If you have read the MAIG’s IRS Form 990’s going back several years, I would not call the midget’s “support” to be quite in line with the term “largesse”.

    Kegger at Shannon’s house, I mean MDA HQ in April for the NRA Convention!!! Comment Moderated. 🙂

      Superb, Dirkster! My suggestion to Mothers Seeking Attention: Declare “victory”, go home, and start a crocheting circle. The US “won” in Vietnam and Afghanistan, and you can, too! Oh, and Iraq.

      Distance yourselves from impending failure and doom. Pretend it never happened. Start a soft porn group with Dirk.

      Clearly, Shannon has framed herself as an “activist for hire, I mean profit”. Monsanto, gun-snatching.

      Quit while you still can.

    And only one comment to this story in the last hour. MDA, here’s your motorcycle. The shark is over there.

    1. avatar guy says:

      As I recall, Fonzie was on waterskis.

      1. avatar Maineuh says:

        And black socks. On the beach. Yeah, he was real cool.

      2. avatar Gene says:

        I can remember when that first aired. A two-part cliff hanger. Good Lord I feel old right now.

        1. avatar Ralph says:

          You feel old now? Wait til you get solicited by AARP. Every. Freakin’. Day.

        2. avatar William Burke says:

          They stopped soliciting me years ago. Maybe a couple of moves threw them off the trail.

      3. avatar William Burke says:

        Correct.

  4. avatar Tom says:

    The fact that MDA “claims a victory” getting a billboard down says a great deal. MDA is also hostile to the First Amendment and to freedom of speech unless its their own speech

    1. avatar JR says:

      Well, they are also claiming that Shannon was “bullied” by the IN legislature during a Q&A.

      She wants the mantle of ‘activist’ with none of the actual work. Wait, that sounds familiar for folks of her political stripe.

      1. avatar William Burke says:

        Yeah, anyone who opposes her, on Constitutional grounds or not, is by definition a “bully”. Keep it up, beeyotches… I’m enjoying the hell out watching you sink in your own quicksand.

    2. avatar guy says:

      Yeah, that’s pretty sad. Getting a billboard taken down would be somewhere between ‘not choking to death on your own tongue’ and ‘buying beer underage’ in the terms of accomplishments to begin with. The fact that they’re lying about a non-accomplishment is downright pathetic. It’s like not owning a car at all, and claiming to someone you have a clapped-out corolla to impress them.

  5. They won’t disappear, Bloomberg will simply change their name (again).

        They could have a duck for their logo (quack).
        OR
        They could hire Dirk to make the “promo” vid (see wack).

        1. avatar Dirk Diggler says:

          I would be honored to make a public service announcement, but only if Shannon appears in it with me.

      Ahight, I’m over it.

    There, I corrected that for you.

  11. avatar Dev says:

    This is why Slide Fire needs to send out to all the news organizations and websites a public letter detailing exactly what happened, their two months were up. They need to refute the lies that MDA is spreading.

    1. avatar Ralph says:

      Why? It’s not going to change the minds of MDA’s three members and only gives the group publicity for which they are so desperate.

  15. avatar Mark Lloyd says:

    We are taught from an early age, at least most of us were, that wishing bad things on someone, or otherwise wishing someone to fail is not a constructive thought and is mostly negative. We learn in school sports that it is not about winning or losing, but rather how we play the game.

    It’s hard to remember all that when the cops always say everything is a game, until you are talking to them and they say “this isn’t a game” After they raid someone for having a plant in their house and the person is heading off to jail, the cops are standing around giving each other high fives while someones life is over.

    With all this in mind, it will be pure joy to watch the hens of MDA sink into forgotten obscurity. It’s inevitable.
    MDA days are numbered, mark my words. High fives!

  17. avatar Blah Blah says:

    I thought about adding up the number from each state “chapter” of Bloomberg Mothers and comparing it to the 150K number on their main page. State numbers are likely a better indicator of their support. I wonder how far short it is? HMMM

    1. avatar Pascal says:

      Makes perfect sense. For the anti-gun crowd, don’t remind them of the administrations failures. For the gun rights crowd, don’t get them all bent out of shape so they vote.

      Except, the 2a crowd has been pissed off for some time now and will be at the polls to vote these SOBs out of office come November

    2. avatar dwb says:

      Fortunately, Bloomberg is a billionaire narcissist. Like all billionaire narcissists, he just can’t help himself.

    3. avatar JR says:

      Isn’t that interesting.

      We need to keep them in the news. Posts here…whatever.

      Shine the light under that rock and keep in shining. Don’t let them hide until after the election.

      1. avatar William Burke says:

        PRECISELY. Some hear want us to ignore them. Believe you me, they should be written about and exposed at every opportunity.

        They’re stumbling and missing like punch-drunk prizefighters now. KEEP PUNCHING, until they do down on the canvas… FOR GOOD. You don’t back away from victory.

        And in this instance, their loss is our victory. Right uppercut.

    4. avatar William Burke says:

      Those elections will probably be catastrophic for them. Not good strategy. I love it.

      actually, I find Dr. Rice very attractive. Granted, she doesn’t turn heads anymore, but a well-educated and experienced diplomat like her can be downright sexy, esp over cocktails and polite dinner conversation.

        She looked hot enough wearing that split skirt and black boots, if you ask me…

    For immediate release:

    ‘Victory against the gun control crazies (GCC-trademark) is ours!!
    Today millions of law abiding gun owners were able to exercise their right to bear arms. Many carried loaded weapons with them for personal protection. Others took their weapons to various gun ranges for training. Nearly all were able to keep their weapons another day.’

    -The right to keep and bear arms,The Right, is recognized by the US Constitution, has been the law of land since 1789, and has been defending the citizens of this country from enemies foreign and domestic. Despite efforts by anti-American fascist forces that comprise the GCC, The Right remains the leading rule in proclaiming the natural civil-right for self defense.

    1. avatar Will says:

      GCC, already in use. Google it and you will see it is:

      an acronym for the GNU Compiler Collection.
      an acronym for the Gulf Cooperation Council
      Laser Printer manufacturer
      Industrial Printer/Cutter/Laser Engraving/cutting/marking equipment manufacturer.

      Oh wait… MDA was already in use for “Jerry’s Kids” before SW hijacked the acronym. So it probably won’t bother them to steal that acronym too.

      1. avatar William Burke says:

        Well, Jerry got canned for telling the MDA that there was now a cure for MD. Can’t have that! (See: cancer cures, known for about 100 years)
