Left's turn against NASCAR
NASCAR has announced that its April 13 Sprint Cup Series race in Texas will be renamed and sponsored by the NRA. OK. This should be the end of it, but once again, the left has made something it does not agree with into some sort of controversial issue.
If I did not understand the progressive movement and the mainstream media so well, I would be dumbfounded as to why this is an issue. If NASCAR named a race the “Prius 500” or “Wind Energy Works 450,” the anti-American left would be fine. But, since the left hates the NRA almost as much as it hates God, it has made the comparison of law-abiding citizens to a serial killer.
The NRA had nothing to do with Sandy Hook or any other mass shooting, not to mention that NASCAR, conservative principles and the Second Amendment go hand-in-hand.
This has nothing to do with NASCAR or the NRA. This has to do with the progressive movement and its desire to control all of society.
Now, since the leader of the soon-to-not-be-free world is their progressive deity, leftists think the entire country believes in their autocratic European model. We do not. We will never let them destroy this country. Don't tread on me.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
