In my post below, "The NRA, the Lairds of Fairfax and the 'Homintern': Wayne and Chris out of the closet? A tidbit of information that could explain much" I apparently offended a number of people who are worried that even mentioning the subject of someone's sexual orientation can be used to discredit the Three Percent and me, not necessarily in that order.
Let me make plain something I did not say directly but hinted at. IF the report about LaPierre and Cox is true, the command decisions made by them on behalf of NRA membership may not only be influenced by the fact that they are wanting to avoid confronting fellow homosexuals, but more likely by the blackmail potential of living in the closet and having a natural fear of being outed.
In the 90s there were rumors that the NRA leadership (again, LaPierre and Cox) were much more amenable to Clinton administration "reasonable regulations" after the IRS took up residence at NRA headquarters during some rough audits. After considerable scrutiny, the IRS just quietly folded its tent and walked away one day without pursuing the matter. It is certain that at the same time LaPierre walked back quickly from his "jack booted thug" period remarks and became the federal gun cop law enforcement officer's best friend. They went from "keep the government thugs away from our doorsteps" to "keep guns out of the hands of criminals (and we don't particularly care how you define that)." They lost any taste for agency oversight and routinely refused to help victims of ATF abuse legally or financially.
Recall, at about the same time the Clintonistas tamed Newt Gingrich, who had exposed himself to blackmail by taking a mistress.
So why do you think that the NRA "Lairds of Fairfax" learned how to love the Clintonista ATF?
THAT is the question that needs answered.
