The federal lawsuit between the National Rifle Association and the ad firm that created its now-defunct NRATV outlet has taken an uglier turn, with the pro-gun group now alleging its own leadership found the TV outlet's messaging "distasteful and racist."

According to an Oct. 25 amended complaint filed in its ongoing lawsuit against Ackerman McQueen, NRA officials believed the short-lived TV outlet - which featured shows from right-wing stars like Dana Loesch and Dan Bongino - "strayed from the Second Amendment to themes which some NRA leaders found distasteful and racist."

As an example of a "damaging" segment, the NRA filing alludes to an instance on Loesch's show Relentless, in which an on-air graph featured a picture of kid's cartoon character Thomas the Tank Engine wearing a Ku Klux Klan hood.

"Attempts by the NRA to 'rein in' AMc and its messaging were met with responses from AMc that ranged from evasive to hostile," the gun lobby further alleges.

The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants, and it provides the further advantage of giving the servants of tyranny a good conscience.
