Washington Post columnist Henry Olsen, called the resolution “McCarthyism, pure and simple.”
“Words mean,” he wrote, “and there are only a few words, the stigmatizing of a person faster than calling him or her a terrorist.”
He said that the NRA is a terrorist organization, it would have to “promote intentionally, and support the use of violent attacks on the US to force citizens with the intent of capturing the General anxiety and the submission to its political agenda.”
“The NRA makes it clear that,” he said sarcastically, and added: “congratulations, average NRA member: your $30 one-year membership makes you a terrorist.”
He called the resolution “defamatory” and “damaging” and said it worsens the already toxic political environment.
He wrote that the Republicans are often asked to call the outrageous comments made by the on the right side and now the liberals must do the same.
