Pratt: "The African from Africa is a very pro-American person. ... I know several ... and they clearly don’t identify with the surliness that’s all too frequently the attitude of their fellow African Americans here.”
Gun Owners of America director Larry Pratt recently said that members of Congress have a "healthy fear" of being shot. Pratt made his bizarre comment while speaking to Cincinnati radio host Bill Cunningham on Sunday, notes RightWingWatch.org.
During the interview, Cunningham asked Pratt why the media supposedly has "such a bias against the Second Amendment?"
Pratt claimed members of the media such as Piers Morgan believed they were "born to rule and we were born to be ruled."
However, Pratt did not offer any proof of his wild claim.
Pratt then recalled how a member of Gun Owners of America was lobbying a member of Congress who said, "You want to shoot me, don’t you."
"Well, that’s probably a healthy fear for them to have, even though that’s not the guy’s, he wasn’t saying anything about that, it wasn’t in his demeanor," said Pratt. "But you know, I’m kind of glad that’s in the back of their minds. Hopefully they’ll behave."
Back in February, Pratt lectured black Americans on being happier like black people in Africa, noted Wonkette.com.
“Generally, the African from Africa is a very pro-American person, a very happy person,” Pratt claimed. “I know several, and they’re always happy with a joke, a pleasant smile on their face, and they clearly don’t identify with the surliness that’s all too frequently the attitude of their fellow African Americans here.”
