Black Lives Matter just released its response to the National Rifle Association’s controversial “open call” ad, which was released on June 30. And, it’s one heck of a clapback.
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA — A Los Angeles chapter of Black Lives Matter is fed up with the NRA’s propaganda against its civil rights organization. After bearing witness to the NRA’s insensitivity regarding governmental and social injustices, this chapter of BLM is taking matters into its own hands.
Cleverly, Black Lives Matter’s version of the NRA’s propagandist ad takes on a similar tone and atmospheric delivery.

However, it’s certainly not an open call to violence. It’s actually quite the opposite.
But, you also know that’s not how Amerikkka sees it…
Although NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch seemingly targeted BLM in gun lobbyists’ campaign, BLM activist Funmilola Fagbamila had some real talk for Dana’s a**. In the video, Fagbamila mentions as follows.
“When the NRA issues a public call to their constituents, inciting violence against people who are constitutionally fighting for their lives, we don’t take that lightly.”
In a similar manner to how NRA spokeswoman Loesch alluded to former President Barack Obama, BLM’s activist Fagbamila also tapped on current United States’ “leader,” Donald Trump.
She mentions the following statements.
“They use their new president to enact a law-and-order administration. All to make them shoot first… ask questions later… scream, ‘I thought he had a gun in his hand’ and ‘I feared for my life’ and ‘he matched the description of a suspect’ and ‘she was threatening us’… until the only option left is for Black people to disrupt systems that keep us oppressed and build the kinds of communities in which we want to live.”
“The only way we stop this, the only way we save our community and our struggle for freedom is to fight this violence with the raised clenched Black fist of resistance,” mentions Fagbamila.
NRA’s Loesch even took a shot at Deray McKesson…
After the NRA released its controversial ad, Deray basically called it an open call to violence — an attempt to protect white supremacy. So immediately, Dana told Deray to come on-air and say it to her face.
Come on air and tell me to my face that I'm a racist for condemning violent riots you incite. https://t.co/hWJZ8jWV5r

Obviously, the NRA doesn’t care about Black gun owners, right?
Still not resting assured…

Even after the investigation was complete — as well as since Jeronimo’s “not guilty” verdict — the NRA has remained dead silent on “Philando Castile.”
If you haven’t seen the NRA’s ad, feel compelled to watch it below. It’s a real piece of work.
