Two Airlines Just Took Away The NRA’s Precious Discount And Conservatives Are Going NUTS

The party of perpetual irrational anger is in the midst of yet another collective Twitter temper tantrum over the public’s opposition to domestic terrorist organization, the National Rifle Association.

United responded to the public backlash in the wake of the latest mass shooting the NRA helped cause in a completely appropriate manner — a welcome  departure from their usual seemingly never-ending stream of terrible PR blunders.

“United is notifying the NRA that we will no longer offer a discounted rate to their annual meeting and we are asking that the NRA remove our information from their website,” the airline announced Saturday.

Delta also announced that morning that they would be cutting ties with the NRA.

The NRA refused to take this lying down, blaming the shooting not on the easy availability of guns but on a “lack of school preparedness, the failure of America’s mental health system, the failure of the National Instant Check System or the cruel failures of both federal and local law enforcement” and whining that corporations who “decided to punish NRA membership is a shameful display of political and civic cowardice.”

Never fear, citizens. The NRA is very emphatic that the loss of their precious discount won’t “Scare” them. Yes, scare. They feel the need to clarify that they aren’t “scared” by the prospect of paying the same rates as other Americans:

“Let it be absolutely clear. The loss of a discount will neither scare nor distract one single NRA member from our mission to stand and defend the individual freedoms that have always made America the greatest nation in the world.”

How brave.

Naturally, their membership is doing the opposite, collectively wetting their adult diapers on Twitter:

This guy couldn’t even spell “amendment”:

“Delta” is probably a bit uncomfortable for this guy:

…and for these folks:

Maybe they’re on to something though. I hear Delta kills babies:

Watching the Right freak out every time someone doesn’t support ammosexuals’ “right” to blasturbate wherever and whenever they want is always a treat, but it’s important to remember that there are still companies who treat the NRA like gold. Keep the pressure on, people.
