NRA CEO and Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre gave a powerful speech at CPAC Friday afternoon, calling upon the 5 million members of the NRA—along with the tens of millions of conservatives all over the country to stand and fight against the forces conspiring to sabotage President Donald Trump.
“We have all seen how violent they can be. Just look at Inauguration Day,” LaPierre said. “They disguise themselves with Black Bloc ski masks. They spit in the faces of Gold Star families. They tomahawk beer bottles and rocks at police, putting multiple police in the hospital. They smashed businesses’ plate glass windows while customers cowered inside.”
Videos of violent protesters played in the background as LaPierre delivered his remarks and pledged the NRA’s support of President Trump “for the next eight years.”
“The Left’s message is absolutely clear,” he asserted. “They want revenge, you have to be punished. They say you’re what’s wrong with America, and now you’ve got to be purged."
LaPierre continued: “But maybe it’s time these protestors took some advice from Barack Obama: 'The election has consequences.' And we won.”
