National Rifle Association chief Wayne LaPierre called FBI agents to mount a “resistance” against FBI leadership to prove their patriotism during a bizarre speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington D.C..
LaPierre claimed all FBI agents were to blame for supposed “corruption,” an apparent reference to the FBI investigation of the Trump’s 2016 campaign’s alleged collusion with Russian officials during the 2016 election.
LaPierre then called for FBI agents to stand up against FBI leaders:
What is hard to understand is why nobody at the FBI stood up and called B.S. on its rogue leadership. I mean, really, where was the systemic resistance that should protect every powerful institution that serves us?
The lowest ranking marine knows to resist an on lawful order. The rank and file in every powerful institution must police its own leadership.
LaPierre claimed the FBI agents’ supposed complicity was part of a socialism:
In too much of today’s Washington, nobody speaks out. Nobody challenges authority. Everyone keeps their mouth closed and their heads down, and that is exactly how socialistic societies function.
