It was reported today that Senator Chris Murphy of the bastian of NASCAR and gun rights, Connecticut, has called on the Fox network to not broadcast the Texas 500 this weekend.
In the words of Murphy: "You should play a constructive role in our national dialogue by refraining from broadcasting the NRA 500. By airing this race you will be strengthening the brand of a radical organization that is currently standing in the way of meaningful progress on this issue."
Chris Murphy is an idiot; I can't think of much else to say about him. Does he not realize that NASCAR fans, Fox viewers, and gun rights supporters are basically all one and the same? Of course he does, but with this publicity stunt he is trying to impress the Democratic leadership as he is the youngest U.S. Senator at age 39.
Hopefully this is a sign to Colt, Mossberg, and Stag Arms to all leave Connecticut and create jobs elsewhere. They obviously aren't welcome there.
In other NASCAR news, the Oath Keepers organization is trying to sponsor a car in the Dover International Speedway Race on June 1. Jeffrey Earnhardt, nephew of Dale Earnhardt Jr., will be the driver.
An honorable and patriotic organization, the "Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of currently serving military, veterans, peace officers, and firefighters who will fulfill the oath we swore to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God."
As such, the left hates them. Here is an outline of what the car will look like. I can't wait to see it on the track!
