NRA commentator Colion Noir was none-too-happy when reality TV star Kim Kardashian “celebrated” National Gun Violence Awareness Day with an open letter advocating gun control. So he fired up the NRA cameras and let Ms. Kardashian have it with both metaphorical barrels, suggesting that KK’s call to keep guns away from the mentally ill could very well include herself. Like this:
“Kim, let’s be real. You have a book of selfies. You are the epitome of a narcissist, which, last I checked, narcissistic personality disorder is a mental illness. Not to mention your self-admitted dealings with anxiety and the PTSD you suffered from being robbed at gunpoint.
“My dear, you have several mental illnesses. So should we make your name number 75,001 of people who should not be allowed to own guns? Then again, you are an elitist of the highest order, so I’m sure you’d consider yourself an exception.”
Seems like standard-issue Noir, no? Perhaps so, but it proved too much for the NRA, for reasons we can only surmise. Such as the gun rights group’s desire not to alienate Kim’s tens of millions of followers. Whatever.
Anyway, the NRA pulled the video. If you don’t mind giving the rabidly anti-gun Huffington Post and Media Matters the clicks, click here to watch Mr. Noir’s polemic.
On the positive side, I reckon more left leaning Americans will watch the “banned” Noir rant than would have watched it if the NRA hadn’t deep-sixed it. Heck, they might even like it. Secretly, of course. Seriously. Big win.
