Colion’s A Little Too Uppity For The Gun-Grabbing Community Gun Control by Dan Zimmerman | May 07, 2013 | 73 comments facebook twitter linkedin email comments Bill Derer says: May 7, 2013 at 21:04 CHOCOLATEY GOODNESS!!! Reply g says: May 7, 2013 at 22:59 +1 I feel like writing the NRA and telling that I pretty much want 90% of my membership fees to fund Colion Noir videos. Not just because I enjoy them… but to many of my ADD/HD-type friends, who don’t bother to read articles or books, videos like his and AmidsttheNoise are powerful tools for starting pro-2A conversations, and debunking anti-gun myths. Reply DrVino says: May 7, 2013 at 23:39 What happened to AmidsttheNoise, BTW? Reply Eric S. says: May 7, 2013 at 23:57 He still posts. He had one just after the Boston bombing. Not Your Mother says: May 8, 2013 at 11:24 So much respect for that guy. Keep ’em coming. Reply P. Hogan says: May 7, 2013 at 21:05 Mr. Noir has my vote to be President of the NRA. Time to get some fresh blood leading the way! Reply 6 gunner says: May 7, 2013 at 21:14 At least the new spokesman so Wayne LaPierre can be returned to his duties as the mortuary dummy. Reply Pwrserge says: May 7, 2013 at 21:43 Oh come now, La Piere serves as a perfect bullseye for the Democretins to aim at while we quietly chop them off at the neck. Reply Joke & Dagger says: May 7, 2013 at 22:27 Wayne lives rent-free in the heads of gun-grabbers everywhere. Right where I want him. NRA Lifer here who is quite happy with WLP. You can’t argue with results. utdmatt says: May 7, 2013 at 22:47 Colion is perfect where he is right now guys. He has 0 industry and community contacts at this point. He’s gonna need a couple years working his magic before he can move from a speaker to someone who can influence people personally. You have to do more then talk to be good at the job up top. Reply MothaLova says: May 7, 2013 at 22:53 Yes, exactly. But he has a bright future. DrVino says: May 7, 2013 at 23:40 And that Law Degree don’t hurt, neither… Mr. Lighter says: May 7, 2013 at 22:22 Seeing him as the president of the NRA would make me very happy. It’s also good to see a bit more visible diversity in the gun-rights world. I’m sure that there are lots of minorities who are pro-gun, but I get the feeling that the MSM isn’t giving them an adequate voice. I think what the NRA really needs to do is start a very visible media campaign showing that gun owners aren’t crazy white supremacists, but rather, ordinary people. Reply Ross says: May 8, 2013 at 10:28 He has my vote for President and no not just of the NRA. Reply DisThunder says: May 7, 2013 at 21:09 Hear hear! As far as I’m concerned, if gun rights needs to be a color, let’s all be black. Or at least blued. And nothing would be more fun than to watch Colion debate somebody like Micheal Moore. Reply Sputnik says: May 7, 2013 at 21:12 I would pay to see that and love every minute of it!!! Reply Human Being says: May 7, 2013 at 21:34 “It’s because I’m black, isn’t it?” http://lionofgray.files.wordpress.com/2013/01/538498_397494410338507_946523331_n.jpg Reply ProfBathrobe says: May 7, 2013 at 21:35 I’d say don’t get my hopes up, but I said the same thing about the NRA potentially picking up Colion while he was still an unsung YouTuber, so I won’t say never just yet. Reply Paul says: May 8, 2013 at 11:01 Or debate Chris Matthews, or Piers Morgan, or “Richard” Maddow. Reply 6 gunner says: May 7, 2013 at 21:16 He doesn’t toe the line so he is therefore a token. I really don’t follow the logic that black skin means you must vote democrat. Reply Pascal says: May 7, 2013 at 21:24 Even better, it is white democrats and media folk who are saying the black guy does not toe the line. There is nothing to get, they just believe that everyone should think the way they do. Its the same deal if a black or Hispanic is republican, look the dems saying that Cruz is not Hispanic. Reply Old Ben turning in grave says: May 8, 2013 at 10:52 Well, from context we get a clearer idea what their terms mean. So, you can’t be Hispanic unless you support the Democratic party. I guess that’s a more important criterion than your family history and cultural background, which seem to be more negotiable. Reply JMS says: May 8, 2013 at 12:33 “I really don’t follow the logic that black skin means you must vote democrat.” It’s called racism. The left is the party telling minorities that they’re victims and can’t amount to anything due to institutional racism so they should just stop trying to succeed, should live off the government tit, obey the rules, vote Dem, get abortions, do drugs, think a certain way…. and here they are suggesting that, because Colion is black, he is only capable of thinking one way and, if his opinion is otherwise, then obviously he’s just a puppet for some rich white guy. Because black people can be told what to do by white people and that’s the only possible explanation for a conservative black dude. Awesome. It’s called racism. The Left is always the side screaming “racist,” because they’re projecting their self-hatred on others. Just like they’re projecting the fact that they can’t trust themselves around a firearm onto others. If I can’t control my emotions and sick thoughts, then certainly most other people can’t either. Certainly not conservatives! You say, “end illegal immigration” and they say “that’s racist why do you hate Mexicans?” and you say “I never said anything about Mexicans! You’re the one who equates illegal immigrant with Mexican. YOU’RE the racist one.” or you say “Obama doubled the food stamp program. He’s the food stamp president” and they say “OMG that’s racist” and you say “what are you talking about? YOU’RE the one who hears food stamps and thinks ‘black person’!” ^^^ half the time when they scream “racism!” it’s because they’ve made their own mental connection and then they’re ashamed by it, so they project it onto somebody else. Sorry, but the Tea Party and the NRA are not racist. Calling a black person who joins those organizations an Uncle Tom or a puppet or a ‘sellout to their race’ or whatever IS racist as f**k. Makes me sick. Reply J in Ga says: May 7, 2013 at 21:18 Awesome Reply dph says: May 7, 2013 at 21:20 Colion is everything LaPierre is not; hip, articulate, interesting, young and relevant. He should be the official mouthpiece for the NRA. Reply David PA/NJ says: May 7, 2013 at 22:07 He’s also a member of what’s been described as “gun culture 2.0,” which is very important to move the perception of the NRA and of gun guys (and gals) away from the Fud leadership which has historically only been interested in sportsmen Reply RKflorida says: May 8, 2013 at 12:17 I understand your enthusiasm, but experience is absolutely required. Give him some time to mature and he will be ten times as powerful. Avoid making him the “Rock Star” of the gun groupies. Pride is the downfall of young men. I love this guy, but I personally would hope that he comes along at a moderate pace and builds character, depth and thereby, strength. Reply rosignol says: May 8, 2013 at 13:30 Let’s give him another year or two of seasoning first… but yeah, the man has potential. Reply Bob2 says: May 7, 2013 at 21:22 This video is absolutely wonderful. Colion Noir, consider yourself my friend and a true patriot. Reply Kentucky Packrat says: May 7, 2013 at 21:23 I have 4-5 hours worth of writing to do at home now because of a 5 hour meeting at work to discuss how we needed said writing done. I don’t need to be watching Colion Noir… OTOH, “Chocolatey goodness” is an all time classic line. One more YouTube video won’t hurt anything…. Reply Human Being says: May 7, 2013 at 21:30 Announcer: Dear lord, this is brutal ladies and gentlemen! Where is the referee? How much punishment can one insular, elitist world-view sustain? Mr Noir isn’t even letting them pass out with dignity! The best they can hope for is to simply forget this match happened tomorrow. Someone stop the fight!! Reply alanhinMN says: May 7, 2013 at 21:36 Well said Colion Noir! Keep up the good work and the fight. Reply Tom in Oregon says: May 7, 2013 at 21:37 I like this guy. Started watching him about 8 months ago. He’s exactly what the NRA needs. And, like the previous video on women and guns….maybe the NRA is reading TTAG? Reply dwb says: May 7, 2013 at 21:44 +1000000 who called him the token black guy anyway? The best part of the video is that he is smirking through most of it. Reply dirk diggler says: May 7, 2013 at 21:45 I catch hell at work all of the time, esp from White liberals. Why? A well-educated, church going, Black conservative who likes guns and won’t tow the standard race baiting talking points,really throws their world off-kilter. Colion is good for representing the Brothers. Reply Joke & Dagger says: May 7, 2013 at 22:29 You wouldn’t catch any hell at my office. You would fit right in. I love my office. Reply MothaLova says: May 7, 2013 at 22:55 I wish you worked with me in NYC (for my sake, not yours). Reply Tom in Oregon says: May 8, 2013 at 00:55 Hahaha! Yup. You’d fit right in here too. I sold my boss his new carry piece. He sees what I’m looking at on one of my monitors, and asks questions. Besides market research in commodities trading, he is now interested in all things with TTAG. Love it here Reply RKflorida says: May 8, 2013 at 12:18 You sound like the kind of person I would be proud to call friend. Reply mediocrates says: May 7, 2013 at 21:58 That’s right Colion. You’re just a house **gga. Or maybe an Uncle Tom. Or maybe…. aww w helll, I’m sure the haters have a few more choice words for you. That’s the way things are in the good ole USA these days. Keep fighting the good fight. Reply Eric says: May 7, 2013 at 22:03 @Dan: Any reason you chose to use this unspecific NRA News image/link rather than embedding the YouTube video directly? Reply Mina says: May 7, 2013 at 22:26 ~ swoon ~ wow. that is all. Reply Joke & Dagger says: May 7, 2013 at 22:31 Wow, I hadn’t thought of mr. Noir’s sexiness bringing the ladies in. Cool. I thought I was the only one. 🙂 Reply DrVino says: May 7, 2013 at 22:37 I wonder if he’s seen “Blazing Saddles”?…… Reply Gov. William J. Le Petomane says: May 7, 2013 at 22:42 Harumph! Reply Human Being says: May 7, 2013 at 22:49 And that was how Gov. William J. Le Petomane won the internetz that day. Reply DrVino says: May 7, 2013 at 23:42 Hey….. I didn’t get a Harumph outta that guy… Reply 16V says: May 8, 2013 at 01:54 That guy is a ni… Herb says: May 8, 2013 at 07:59 “I sure am glad those fingers ain’t loaded!” Reply Old Ben turning in grave says: May 8, 2013 at 10:56 Excuse me while I whip this out Reply SightPicture says: May 7, 2013 at 22:38 Another great video from CoLION Reply MothaLova says: May 7, 2013 at 22:56 Each time I think, “This guy can’t get any better,” and each time I’m wrong. Reply Gov. William J. Le Petomane says: May 7, 2013 at 22:41 Whut? Progressives? Racist? Reply Bruce says: May 7, 2013 at 23:06 I’m an OFWG, and I say let Noir become the spokesman for the NRA. Maybe find others like women or young white guy, but Noir should be our current face. I assume LaPierre is good working with the government, if so, let him keep working with congressmen, but keep him off of the television and radio. Reply terry f says: May 7, 2013 at 23:21 Love it!!! Reply Bear says: May 7, 2013 at 23:22 You know what I don’t get? Minority groups who have been targeted by violence, by either a majority group or another minority group…shouldn’t they be all for legal self defense options? Reply philthegardner says: May 8, 2013 at 00:10 Speaking as an asian-american gun owner (i.e. non-token subservient minority) I would gladly vote for Colion Noir to be the face and voice of the NRA any day! Reply Don says: May 8, 2013 at 00:19 I can’t help but think his term “Chocolatie Goodness” would be a great name for a stripper! Reply Ric Hubbard says: May 8, 2013 at 00:52 This guy just gets better and better. Reply Dr Duh says: May 8, 2013 at 01:22 Bitch meet Slap +1,000,000 Reply Joe Grine says: May 8, 2013 at 01:35 Wow. The left hates this guy because he is right and they know it. Reply RegicidalManiac says: May 8, 2013 at 02:29 The smirk! The smirk at the end is just fantastic! I hope he keeps doing what he’s doing, because he is REALLY good at it. In a few years, once he’s had some time to build connections, I think he’d be an excellent replacement for WLP. Reply JW says: May 8, 2013 at 03:01 Awesome! My hat is off to you, Mr Noir! Reply Pantera Vazquez says: May 8, 2013 at 08:02 The gun grabbers think they have it all figured out. OFWGs are all republican gun loving gun nuts. Everyone else isn’t. Particularly, Soccer Moms, The “educated” youth, religious folk who aren’t Protestant, and urban Blacks and Hispanics. Hence the “token” tag on someone like Mr. Colion Noir. You see, Colion is saying things that takes the antis out of their comfort zone. He represents an anomaly to those who claimed they knew how any given group feels on a particular issue, as well he should. In a country of over 300 million diverse people, for ANYONE to claim they can pigeonhole a sector of the population to a given ideology is nothing other than self aggrandizement. “These folks all fall on this or that side, because my highly educated self says so.” Ergo the rest of the country should just accept what these talking heads say and line up accordingly. They got it wrong with him as well as many others. Hell, if I were to fall into their parameters of where they think I “belong”, I would be a Bible thumping, pro life, open border, anti gun zealot. I am a New York Rican who is actually atheist, pro choice, secure borders and pro gun. I guess that would make me in their words an “anomaly”. So be it. Reply Bruce B. says: May 8, 2013 at 08:36 And you just described me. ‘Cept for the ‘Rican part, of course. OFWG with similar beliefs. Sound like someone else I could share a beer with, Reply Bruce B. says: May 8, 2013 at 08:33 OFWG here. I loathe so much “urban” culture. Where the absolute worst features of our society are glamorized. And then you got this dude. Speaking truth to power indeed. President of the NRA. Hell no. That’s shooting way too low. I’d vote for him for POTUS! In a heartbeat. Why could someone this worthy not have been our first black president? He just has to knock the “progressives” for a loop, ’cause he looks you in the eye an tells the truth. You know progressives can’t stand that. It is the narrative that is important, the truth must yield to that. Wouldn’t some naked honesty be a blessing from our elected officials? Buy you a beer anytime, Colion. Reply MWorrell says: May 8, 2013 at 08:57 This should be running on Chicago tv every single day. Reply sdog says: May 8, 2013 at 08:58 god, this brother is the man, i have experienced this SO often personally, speak the truth Colion! “chocolatey goodness” loooool +10 Reply AWW says: May 8, 2013 at 09:22 Mr. Noir has fled the ideological plantation and the Leftists don’t like it when that happens. See Justice Thomas’ interview from last week. Reply Chris says: May 8, 2013 at 09:54 Joke&Dagger, that’s an awesome statement about Wayne LaPierre living “rent-free” in the heads of the antigunner crowd! Whatever you may think of Mr LaPierre, I appreciate the hell out him standing in the gap for all these years. Colion Noir, you just keep hitting bullseyes, keep ’em coming. Reply RKflorida says: May 8, 2013 at 12:20 Chocolatey goodness! Ha! Great line. Reply Mamba says: May 8, 2013 at 13:52 Just when I think that Colion can’t out-do his previous videos….I’m proved wrong. Man, I do so love being wrong. Really like’n the new “young guns”…way to go NRA!…made a Lifer outta this member. Reply Ralph says: May 8, 2013 at 19:05 We are very lucky that Collins is with us. Because if he was with them — the gungrabbers — they’d clean our clocks. Reply Write a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
