https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/nra-irs-disclosure-9...The NRA said in the filing that it continues to review the alleged abuse of funds, as the tax-exempt organization curtails services and runs up multimillion-dollar legal bills. The assertion of impropriety comes four months after the attorney general of New York state filed a lawsuit accusing NRA chief executive Wayne LaPierre and other top executives of using NRA funds for decades to provide inflated salaries and expense accounts.The tax return, which The Washington Post obtained from the organization, says the NRA “became aware during 2019 of a significant diversion of its assets.” The 2019 filing states that LaPierre and five former executives received “excess benefits,” a term the IRS uses to describe executives’ enriching themselves at the expense of a nonprofit entity.
Why is it that the supposedly conservative are so easily duped? Be it by the NRA, the con-man POTUS, the QAnon nonsense, the evangelical fraudsters or the far right wing media?No critical thinking. They are such easy marks.
Oh, how I would love to see LaPierre in prison. He's that kind of soul-less scammer that takes advantage of the clueless.
Why is it that the supposedly conservative are so easily duped?I am convinced that the vast majority of Trump's cult is comprised of the lower half of the class, perennial losers in life. Some of them simply lack the drive to seek truth in order to make good decisions. Because they lack intelligence, experience, knowledge and/or motivation to seek truth, they have never been very successful. Fox News and the right wing echo chamber told them it wasn't their fault that they were not in charge. It was evil Democrats and progressives who are cheating them out of their rightful position. The right wing echo chamber also told them that they should bully the liberals in order to gain dominance in the world.Now we're stuck with Revenge of the Losers. Of course they are easily duped. That's exactly who the right wing echo chamber has been targeting at least since the 1980's.
