31. Truly. We have to mount a relentless campaign to cover all things NRA with shit.

We have to start equating them and their name and their organization with hoodlums, outlaws, murderers, anarchists, anti-social miscreants. We have to start painting them with shit - just the same way as every CON out there for the last 30 - 40 years has relentlessly painted the whole concept of "liberal" and "liberalism" and "Democrats" with shit. So that it then becomes shit in the public mind. It sinks in as shit in the public mindset, thought-process, reality-lens. It sets and cements THE PERCEPTION.

We have to manage the perception better here. We have to TOTALLY manage the perception here. Back during the 70s and 80s, the jingoistic gun-loving government-hating prejudiced, sexist, willfully (even proudly) uninformed, out-to-lunch Frank Burns characters a la "M*A*S*H" and other presentations on TV, in film, and the popular media, were laughed at. Viewed as comic foils. Ridiculous and well worthy of ridicule. Pathetic figures of derision - that were there to laugh at and NOT emulate or admire in any way. The jester character, who was never meant to be taken one bit seriously - only fodder for laughing and smirking and comedy and farce. Unfortunately, that has all since been turned completely upside down. Frank Burns today would be urged to run for high office. Frank Burns already fully represents the state of Texas. And North Carolina. And Kansas. And too many other places to want to count anymore. Frank Burns has become a fucking hero.
