50 views

The panel on Saturday's edition of AM Joy wasted no time blaming the NRA as well as President Trump for the shooting of African-American Glynn County, Georgia resident Ahmaud Arbery. Vanderbilt University Professor Jonathan Metzl pointed the finger at "all the rhetoric coming out of the NRA...and the GOP has created terminology like Stand Your Ground or what I write about in my book, the Castle Doctrine, these ideas that basically of the white body...the white home as a particular castle." According to Metzl, "all of that rhetoric has been kind of deployed...to give the idea that basically white Americans can use their weapons...to defend themselves." Metzl also called guns "symbols of…white privilege" and "white authority." NBC's Kurt Bardella claimed that the shooting of Arbery was "fueled by the rise of Trumpism and fueled by the fact that the most powerful person in the world views minorities and people of color as second-class citizens and every policy that he has supported...and imposed on the American people...is designed to elevate white people...and keep people of color down, you know, somewhere else."
