HuffPo refers to Maria Butina “infiltrating” the National Rifle Association.
What could a Russian spy possibly accomplish by infiltrating the NRA?
Persuade the Board of Directors to start supporting Gun Control?
Fiddle with the reticle on Oliver North’s telescopic sight?
The allegation makes no kind of sense. No Russian “infiltration” could possibly change the NRA’s agenda or political orientation. And it is essentially impossible to imagine a more unlikely ally of any foreign adversary of the United States. You get the impression that these liberals have never seen “Red Dawn” (1984).
NRA members: those are the guys with guns who become the Resistance to the Russian Invasion.
It’s the other side, all the liberal Gun Control groups, that are helping the Russians disarm America.
