Wayne LaPierre, the leader of the National Rifle Association, which is ostensibly an organization promoting the rights of gun owners but is actually an organization to funnel Russian money to Republicans, is violently opposed to any attempt to rein in gun violence in America or otherwise interfere with the profitability of the gun manufacturers. He is currently testifying in his organization’s bankruptcy hearing after the NY Attorney General filed to shut it down.
In a deposition that is part of the NRA’s bankruptcy proceedings, LaPierre claims he was “basically under presidential threat without presidential security” after shootings across the country, which led him to sheltering on the 108-foot yacht, named “The Illusion.”
“They simply let me use it as a security retreat because they knew the threat that I was under. And I was basically under presidential threat without presidential security in terms of the number of threats I was getting,” LaPierre said in the deposition.
“And this was the one place that I hope could feel safe, where I remember getting there going, ‘Thank God I’m safe, nobody can get me here.’ And that’s how it happened. That’s why I used it,” he added.
Go to hell, Wayne. Go directly to hell. There’s a saying, “May you get to Heaven before the Devil knows you’re dead”. Hell is going to know that you’re on your way because the stench of your fear-soaked underpants will be inescapable days before you arrive.
There is no torment Satan could devise that would equal the sheer bowel-emptying misery of being Wayne LaPierre, of looking in the mirror each morning and flinching from the sight of your yellow skin driping across your skull like an uncooked kidney pie, and knowing, every single, solitairy day, that you are weaker and more vulnerable than you were yesterday, and the flames reaching for you, higher and higher.
(Also - fuck it. I don’t know how to do multi-paragraph quotes, I guess.)
