Diamond and Silk Torch Democratic Party At NRA Annual Meeting

Oh yes, they were added to the speaking list. Lynette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, more commonly known by their social media names Diamond and Silk, addressed the National Rifle Association’s Annual Meeting in Dallas, Texas last Friday in which the sisters proceeded to torch the Democratic Party, gun control policies, and remind people to vote in 2018.

The pair voiced their support for the Second Amendment, slamming anti-gunners in the process. 

“No, we don’t need to rewrite the Constitution, you need to re-read the Constitution,” said Hardaway to a round of applause. 

“If you don’t like guns don’t you buy one, but don’t infringe upon my rights to own and carry one,” she added. 

The pair continued to rip apart gun control talking points, reiterating how criminals don’t follow laws and how only law-abiding Americans would suffer the consequences of new gun laws.

“If people had more self-control, then we wouldn’t need no gun control,” added Hardaway. 

The duo then took aim at the Democratic Party, giving a not so gentle reminder to the Left that this is the party of the Ku Klux Klan and the Jim Crow South. They also gave kudos to Kanye West for announcing that he doesn’t really hate Donald Trump, praising the latter’s “dragon energy,” and that the political correctness crowd won’t prevent him from loving the 45th president.

Hardaway noted that people talk about revolution, but added that it happened in 2016, when Diamond and Silk said it was time to leave the Democratic Party’s plantation. 

She added that we don’t need a slave mentality anymore; people know they can walk off the plantation. Yes, there are the gatekeepers, but both women acknowledged the hope they had for those who yearn to think freely and be different.  They hope these people can overcome and scale the fences and walls that are keeping them from leaving the plantation. It’s time to think about voting for something that’s different. 

It was an interesting eight-minute speech, but one that adds to the zest of the political landscape since the 2016 election. It was good ole’ red meat for the base to feast upon, which is needed immensely as the party faces a potentially difficult 2018 midterm season.
