While you ran afoul of Josef Stalin, for those who have been fortunate you bought despatched to the gulag. If you weren’t so fortunate, you bought the proverbial ounce of lead and burial in an unmarked grave. You have been additionally airbrushed out of any image through which you appeared with the Basic Secretary.
The image above illustrates what I imply.
Mao and the Chinese language Communists engaged in related erasures. Qin Bangxian aka Bo Gu was the third Basic Secretary of the Chinese language Communist Get together who ran afoul of Mao. He died in a mysterious airplane crash together with different senior Get together officers after attending a convention as a delegate of the CCP. You possibly can see him within the far left of the primary picture with Mao on the far proper.
Committees are the place a lot of the work of the Nationwide Rifle Affiliation’s board will get executed. You normally are assigned to a board the place you might have a historical past.

Similar to with Stalin’s purges, members of the NRA Board of Administrators who’ve spoken out at the moment are being erased. On this case, they’re being faraway from their committee assignments. Whereas the letters are signed by NRA President Carolyn Meadows, I believe the belief is that these purges are on the instigation of Wayne LaPierre.
The primary to report this was Tim Knight in a Fb publish on June 30th.
And now the retribution: As a result of I publicly expressed concern over present NRA administration’s management and spurious spending, I’m being punished. It has come down from the Officers of the NRA, as I publicly predicted, I can’t be given any committee assignments.
Tim does stay a member of the Board of Administrators. For now.
Subsequent to report being purged was Lt.Col. Allen West. A replica of his letter is under.
Lastly, Esther Quisenberry Schneider disclosed that she has been purged from all committee assignments. As her feedback on her letter clarify, it comes after she has spoken out and has referred to as for Wayne LaPierre to resign.
I’ve a sense that these three are merely the tip of the iceberg.
