Right – wingers are always whining about liberal intolerance. If you’re a liberal who believes that every human being deserves respect and dignity despite their race, religion, or sexual orientation, and refuse to buy into the right-wing myths and stereotypes about gays, trans genders, immigrants, and Muslims, then you’re the intolerant one. If you dare criticize their hateful and bigoted tirades and rants, then it’s you and all of liberalism that is intolerant and want to silence conservative thought and opinion. Which is nonsense.
Right-wing extremists like Dana Loesch, who accuse liberals of intolerance, engage in it themselves on a daily basis. An example of the intolerance that the right-wing has for opposing ideas, views and opinions, was their media assault on the teenage survivors of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting. Right-wing media ( including the NRA ) employed an extensive harassment and smear campaign to discredit and smear them because they had the balls to stand up to the NRA and the politicians they bribe, and say enough is enough, do something. They were accused of being crises actors; paid shills of George Soros, and leftist gun-grabbing Marxists groups; soulless and mushy brained ( that would be people like Loesch, and Squishy Pants Nugent ); they were civil terrorists; were compared to Nazis who wanted to ban guns; and wanted to murder law abiding gun owners. And not to mention, the countless death threats they’ve endured. This is actual intolerance. Conservatives, whose feelings are so fragile they are incapable of hearing an opposing point of view – in this case, teenagers calling for a strengthening of America’s lax gun laws – without completely losing it, and throwing temper tantrums like petulant children who can’t get their way. And they claim it’s really liberals who are the crybabies.
Gun reform activists are all fair game for right-wing criticism. When David Hogg said at the MFOL rally, “I’m going to put this price tag right here as a reminder how much money Marco Rubio took from the NRA for every students lives in Florida,” right-wing gun nuts, and the NRA, lost their minds. David French of the National Review, tweeted : “So, the adult activists think this kind of rhetoric is acceptable?” He had no such rebuke for fellow conservative Kevin Williamson when he called for the death penalty of women who have abortions. In fact, he wrote an article titled, The Sliming Of Kevin Williamson, praising him , and asking liberals to be tolerant. Conservatives want liberals to be tolerant, but apparently they don’t care to hold themselves to the same standard.
Likewise, he has had no rebuke for Dana Loesch’s violent rhetoric when she attacks the free press, and calls for the curb stomping of perceived liberal reporters and calls them the rat bastards of the earth, her NRA videos depicting liberal protesters as fascists for protesting, or some of her inflammatory CPAC speeches where she has used racially charged language to accuse the media of loving mass shootings. If anyone loves mass shootings, it’s certainly Dana Loesch, Wayne Lapew, and her other fascist cohorts at the NRA. Firearm sales rise after mass shootings, which pleases the manufacturers, which means more gun sales for the NRA, and more money in their pockets.
Conservatives like Loesch expect liberals to just shut up and accept anything they say about liberals and progressives, without criticism, no matter how insane it is. She and other conservatives can accuse liberals and Democrats of supporting infanticide. We must accept that insane accusation, and shut the f**k up, and if we dare criticize her, then we’re being intolerant. She proclaimed it, so it must be true, since she is just one of several harbingers of truth in a ‘dishonest liberal media’. And yet, if liberals or progressives dare accuse her, and the NRA of allowing children to be shot, for bribing politicians to ignore gun violence, and its failure to support universal background checks, then it’s a false attack against not only her and the NRA, but a vicious smear campaign to besmirch their flawless and wonderful reputations, and silence her and her fellow conservatives.
Let’s all cry a river for Dana and the honest media she represents. They’re such victims.
Speaking of which political party or movement that only cares about the constitution when it suites their purposes, it would be the Republican party and its conservative base, especially the radical, gun nut extremists like Dana Loesch who believe that the second amendment guarantees the American citizen the almighty God given right to own an arsenal of weapons ( it doesn’t ), let alone a single gun.
And how are liberals censoring conservative media outlets? Liberals have no interest in censoring conservatives. Conservative news sources like Fox News, Breitbart, The Blaze, The Daily Wire, and conservatives like Loesch, and some of the biggest names in conservativism like Glenn Beck, Ben Shapiro, Dennis Prager, Steven Crowder – and anyone else claiming they’ve been censored from social media just because they’re conservative – are thriving on social media, like Facebook, and YouTube. The only so-called conservative outlets that I’m aware of that had been banned from certain social media platforms, were lunatics like Alex Jones, Milo Yiannopoulos, and Laura Loomer ( some of which have been reinstated ). And what does this have to do with big government liberal schemes? Absolutely nothing. It’s not a first amendment issue. Social media like Facebook and YouTube are private enterprises that have every right to ban content creators who violate policy guide lines involving hate speech. So, conservatives who claim they’ve been targeted solely for their conservative views, are just being disingenuous. Claiming censorship is a tool to work the sympathies of the gullible who buy their propaganda ( which includes all forms of bigotry ) as truth.
On the other hand, those who would not hesitate to censor their critics, are right wingers. For example, conservatives like Dana Loesch with her totally asinine NRA videos attacking liberals who protest the president’s behavior, and her attacks against journalists she deems to be liberal, whom she has called to be curb stomped because they dare criticize a Republican president. She constantly bemoans the legitimate media as lying, dishonest liberal hacks, while totally and conveniently overlooking the media she should be focusing her scorn and criticism on. But since she’s a member of that media, no amount of criticism will be forth coming, therefore exposing herself as a shameless, and hypocritical partisan hack.
It’s clear that Dana considers herself and her colleagues in right-wing media as troublesome truth-tellers to a supposed liberal media elite. Which is too hilarious to even consider. Loesch is a disingenuous hack who wouldn’t know what actual truth is if it rose up and bit her in the a**.
Dana Loesch has compared Democrats and liberals who are pro choice, to baby killers, but conveniently plays the victim whenever someone points out her hypocrisy. Her stance, and that of her cronies in the NRA, is to oppose any and all gun reform, on the absurd notion that it’s a violation of the second amendment, and when someone rightly points out that by her own logic she is also a baby killer, she screams bloody murder, and attacks the victims of shootings as demagogues and gun grabbers, thereby proving just how pathetic a human being she really is.
“You commie libtards lynched me once, but never again!”
Did you know that any criticism of Dana Loesch is a vicious smear campaign? Anyone who criticizes or disagrees with whatever s**t that pours from her pie hole, is a smear campaign to silence little Ms. Wonderful? So, listen up all of you violent, anti American liberals and leftists!
She is not to be criticized.
She is not to be mocked.
If you do either, it’s a violent, vicious smear campaign, which proves that liberals and other leftists are a violent mob with one goal in mind : to silence conservative opinion!
When Dana released her awesome video portraying leftists as terrorists because they dare to protest Donald Trump’s policies, she had no idea that dishonest liberals would twist the meaning of her video, and insert their own interpretation. Because if it isn’t clear to everyone by now, then good damn it, it should be, that the wonderful, American patriots at the NRA, like little Ms. Wonderful herself, really are Freedoms Last Refuge, and you all better get that through your thick liberal skulls, and you better not say mean things about her, which might hurt her feelings, thereby proving she’s totally not a snowflake, and the feelings of her supporters, thereby proving that they’re totally not snowflakes either.
“They use their media to assassinate real news,” she says in her video. “They use their schools to teach children that their president is the next Hitler. They use their movie stars and singers, comedy shows and award shows to repeat their narrative over and over again. And then they use their ex president to endorse the resistance. All to make them march, make them protest, make them scream racism, sexism, xenophobia, and homophobia, to smash windows, burn cars, shut down interstates and airports, to bully and terrorize the law abiding. Until the only option left is for the police to do their job and stop the madness. And when that happens, they’ll see it as an excuse for their outrage. The only way to stop this, the only way we save our country and our freedom is to fight the violence of lies with the clinched fist of truth. I’m the NRA of America, and I’m Freedoms safest place.”
Have Dana and her friends in the media ever engaged in fake news? Have they ever been less than honest? Of course not. Why, accusing Dana, or anyone in conservative media for that matter, of being dishonest, is akin to calling Jesus Christ a liar. Everyone knows that NRA TV is one of the few lone beacons of truth and honesty in a media that is dominated by lying, disingenuous liberals that make up their own news. Like, how president Trump is bigoted and racist, how Black Lives Matter really isn’t about hating cops and white people, and how the NRA is like a terrorist organization that hold federal law makers financially hostage to make sure no gun reform legislation is passed.
Have Dana and her buddies at the NRA ever been critical of the former president? No way. We all no that never happened. They never referred to him as a Kenyan born, Nazi, Marxist, terrorist sympathizing, America hating Muslim, who was going to take all the guns away. And they certainly never, ever accused him of racism, because when America elected its first black president… well, that was proof that racism was officially a thing of the past.
Have conservatives ever used their celebrities to repeat their narratives? Hell no! Conservative celebrities never got involved in politics when Obama was in the White House. Just ask Uncle Ted, the Motor City Madman, the Next Rosa Parks, the White/Black Guitar Slayer From Detroit, SpongeTed Squishy Pants. He never said any of those racist, sexist, homophobic, and anti Semitic things that liberals accused him of, or that liberals and illegal immigrants should be shot like rabid dogs. And he never crapped his pants to avoid the draft.
Did Tea Party conservatives march in protest of the black president? Not to my knowledge. They loved his policies. They never carried such signs as Obama’s Plan : White Slavery; and The American Tax Payers Are The Jews For Obama’s Ovens. They never accused him of starting a war on cops, or accused him of being responsible for the deaths of several police officers.
According to conservatives like Dana Loesch, and her supporters, liberals who criticize and protest the policies of Donald Trump, are nothing more than terrorists. That is the definition of a smear. But apparently, being critical of her smearing liberals, is itself a smear.
Dana Loesch at CNN Town Hall, prior to getting beaten, body slammed, lynched, and burned at the stake by violent, gun grabbing leftists dressed as professional wrestlers.
When Dana Loesch found out that Anderson Cooper and CNN had received The prestigious Walter Cronkite award for excellence in journalism for its 2018 Town Hall on gun violence, she was so jealous that she recently appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight to complain how shameful it was that she hadn’t received her own award for having her ass handed to her by the Parkland students.
“Seriously, people, is this a joke?” the conservative pundit and NRA spokesperson, tweeted in reaction to the news.
“Honestly, I can’t believe that CNN was awarded the Walter Cronkite for excellence in political journalism when everyone there was so mean to me,” she told Carlson. “I was literally booed, shamed, spit on, hissed at, tarred and feathered, stoned, beaten to a bloody pulp, shot, stabbed, water boarded, drawn and quartered, gassed, fried to a crisp, boiled alive, staked, beheaded, torn to shreds, hanged, lynched, crucified, and finally, burned at the stake. Then they took my ashes, put them in jar, and pi**ed all over them. Does that sound like advancing the conversation to you, Tucker?”
Carlson : “It sounds like outright murder to me. It seems like the whole event was staged, and they were ready to murder you from the moment you walked through the door, rather than let you speak. So typical of the violent left.”
“I mean, seriously,” Loesch continued, “not only that, but there was a mob of people there who were dressed like professional wrestlers, carrying signs that said, ‘Kill The B***h Queen, and ‘Blame All Law Abiding Gun Owners For Mass Shootings! Confiscate Their Guns And Kill Them, Too!’ All of them carried nooses, too.
“When they noticed me eyeing them nervously, they all rushed the stage at once, screaming, ‘Burn the witch!’ and ‘Hang The B***h!’ Several people tried to stop them, but we’re unable to prevent them from getting up on stage. There were just too many of them, and they were determined to kill me. First they took turns body slamming me like professional wrestlers do, using their elbows to inflict unbearable pain and damage on me, and then they teamed up and kept pouncing and pouncing, and slamming and slamming, until I was literally a pancake. After they finished, they posed for pictures with each other with my flattened corpse on display between them, like fisherman posing with their catch. Most of the audience, including the Parkland students, were laughing and encouraging them to kill me, while only a few were actually horrified at how I was being treated.
“When they were finished with me,” she continued, “they took turns punishing the few that tried to stop them from manhandling me. They did the same things to them that they did to me. One of them was senator Marco Rubio. Earlier he had been asked by one of the students if he would continue to accept donations from the NRA. You could tell how angry they were when he told them no. They wanted to kill him on the spot, and take his guns. But I believe they were biding their time, probably waiting to kill me first, and then senator Rubio, probably hoping to make a spectacle and an example of both of us, which evidently they managed to accomplish. They finished me off, and those who tried to defend me, and then they went after Rubio, doing the exact same things to him that they did to me. And as I was leaving the building, an insane leftist charged me from behind, screaming she was going to kill me, and stuff my corpse in the barrel of my AR-15, but thank God someone was able stop this one.”
Carlson : “Unbelievable! Exactly when did all of this happen, Dana? As far as I know, CNN didn’t televise anyone getting body slammed, or flattened like a pancake, much less getting stoned, shot, or stabbed.”
“Well, of course not, Tucker. CNN was not about to show what their sham of a town hall was really all about, which was putting on a WWE style event, and pretending that it was all about guns and how dangerous they are, while humiliating me and law abiding gun owners, and trying to make us look like fools, but succeeding only in making themselves look like fools. All of this happened after the cameras were turned off, Tucker, because they didn’t want anyone to see how violent and unhinged the leftist, gun hating mobs are. If they had left the cameras rolling, everyone would have sided with the NRA, and would realize just how awesome guns really are.”
Carlson : “I totally agree. To put on a display of violence just days after a massacre, is despicable, and totally typical of the violent left.”
“That’s right, Tucker. But what bothers me more than anything else is, I should have won that award, not CNN. I showed up to prove how awesome guns are, and I believe that’s exactly what I did.”
NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch revealed earlier this week on her show on NRA TV that liberals may attempt to intimidate NRA supporters who bring their guns to the voting polls because liberals are violent.
Loesch is no stranger to controversy , or saying stupid s**t. In fact , like any troll , she seems to enjoy it. She is best known for her advocating of curb stomping journalists she perceives as biased , and her awful , fascist style videos depicting liberal protesters as angry , rampaging mobs hell-bent on destroying democracy.
Loesch also made the bizarre claim that no one on the right has done anything close to a Bernie bro style attack , like shooting up a congressional ball field or throwing rocks through someone’s windows , or attacking and assaulting someone with different campaigns.
It would appear that Dana has been living quietly under a rock , not to be aware of the many cases of right-wing lunatics who have gone on shooting sprees. Nikolas Cruz , who murdered seventeen of his fellow students at Stoneman Douglas High School earlier this year ; Dylann Roof , who shot up a church of African-American parishioners ; the Colorado Planned Parenthood shooter , Robert Dear , who was inspired by anti Planned Parenthood propaganda ; the Pizzagate shooter who was inspired by anti Clinton conspiracies peddled by the likes of Alex Jones ; Amanda and Jerad Miller , both anti government wing nuts who shot three Las Vegas police officers. And this past Friday , a white supremacist killing eleven in a Jewish synagogue in Pittsburg , are several worth mentioning.
Liberals and progressives are not radicalized by their ideology to pick up AR-15’s and shoot up churches , synagogues , and public schools. The same cannot be said about conservative ideology. But tell that to a die-hard liberal hating conservative and they’ll either make up a ton of BS to prove you a lying libtard , or repeat the Steve Scalise shooting and the afore-mentioned examples as definitive proof that leftist ideology is inherently more violent. Liberal ideology is acceptance and tolerance of others , conservative ideology is the opposite.
Southern Poverty Law Center has documented hundreds of cases of members of anti government , Sovereign Citizens , and white supremacist groups committing violence , involved in mass shootings or other forms of attacks on African , Jewish , Muslim Americans , and police officers.
Dana is either being disingenuous , or is genuinely stupid. My guess would be a bit of both.
Earlier this week , Loesch appeared on Hannity to claim that liberals may attempt to beat up Trump supporters , replace their MAGA hats with Obama , Bernie , and Hillary hats , all in an effort to frame conservatives as violent.
“We know it’s liberals who are violent , Sean , not conservatives , ” Dana said. “And we’ve witnessed that violence quite a bit lately , what with the Kavanaugh hearing , when leftist mobs gathered to destroy the reputation of one man who was obviously framed by a radical feminist , and also where mobs of one to three liberals have gone into restaurants to harass Republican senators and throw out their food because they didn’t like what they were eating , or snatch the hats off the heads of Trump supporters while screaming obscenities at them , like calling them MAGAT heads or something.”
“Or put a MAGA supporters fist in their face at one of his rallies and claim that president Trump encourages violence ,” Hannity said. “Or Trump haters literally beating each other up and claiming him and his supporters are violent.”
“That’s right , Sean. But what worries me most about the leftist mob , is this disturbing trend of violence we’ve seen directed at conservatives , like the violent rhetoric that led to the shooting of Steve Scalise , Maxine Waters telling people to get in the face of Republicans , and Eric Holder telling the leftist mob to kick conservatives. This is a trend that I’ve been warning conservatives about for some time , Sean , in fact since the Steve Scalise shooting by a Bernie Bro. Things are only going to get worse with liberals becoming more and more unhinged , and I’m afraid it’s going to escalate in a final culmination of violence. I believe that in the next few weeks , leading up to , and after the mid terms , we may see liberals becoming so desperate that they may start beating Trump supporters , replace their MAGA hats with Obama , Hillary , and Bernie hats , and then blame the violence on conservatives , just as they’ve blamed the so-called MAGA bomber on president Trump and the right , so they can then say something like , look the victim was wearing a Obama , Hillary , or Bernie Bro hat , so the shooter must have been a MAGA supporter. I even said this on twitter , Sean , and it was met with some of the most vicious attacks by unhinged leftists.”
“We’ve got the tweet on-screen , ” Hannity said , “along with the hateful , vicious response from the left , with the filthy language blacked out.”
“This is the kind of violent rhetoric I’m talking about , Sean. Conservatives can’t even ask a legitimate question on twitter without the leftist mob calling for their heads.”
“Shocking. Just shameful behavior. It’s just as bad as shooting a gun. They may as well just shoot us all. But about your tweet , I can understand wanting to shoot Trump supporters and blaming them to make them look violent , but why would they want to steal the MAGA hats of Trump supporters and replace them with Obama , Bernie , and Hillary Hats?”
“To frame conservatives as violent , radical extremists , Sean.”
“That makes sense ,” Hannity said. “My God. Stealing MAGA hats and replacing them with Obama , Hillary , and Bernie hats , is literally encouraging mob rule. It’s worse than the mob that gathered outside the senate the day of the Kavanaugh hearing.”
“That’s right , Sean. But what’s worse than liberals beating up Trump supporters and replacing their MAGA hats with Obama , Bernie , and Hillary hats , will be when they start showing up at Trump rallies , beat up his supporters , and replace their MAGA hats with Obama , Hillary , and Bernie hats.”
Dana Loesch is a conservative radio and media commentator , and NRA spokesperson. According to her Wikipedia page , she is the current special assistant to the executive vice president for public relations for the NRA , a position she has held since 2017.
She is listed at number 888 in the Encyclopedia Of American Loons.
Before becoming an NRA spokesperson , she hosted the daily show , Dana , at Glenn Beck’s The Blaze , from 2014 to late 2017.
She’s previously written for Breibart’s Big Journalism , and was employed briefly at CNN , but was released for questionable behavior. Since 2008 she’s been the host of the Dana Radio Show , The Conservative Alternative.
She is known for making controversial statements , such as the time she said how cool it would be to drop her trousers to urinate on the bodies of dead Taliban soldiers. Other controversies include , attacking mainstream media journalists as ‘rat bastards of the earth’ , and ‘a boil on the backside of American politics’ , and should be ‘curbed stomped’ for dishonesty in reporting ( apparently , Dana , and her cronies over at Fox News , and NRA TV are lone beacons of truth , honesty , and accuracy in media ) ; claiming that spoons can be classified as assault weapons ; accusing liberals of marching in lock step with terrorists , after the 2016 Inland Empire shooting spree , labeling them the Godless Left for having the audacity to mock thoughts and prayers of cowardly politicians ; attacking the New York Times for its dishonesty and mediocrity ( again with no self-awareness of her own faults ) ; accusing mainstream media of loving mass shootings after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas school shooting , and claiming that hordes of angry leftists attempted to stone her at a CNN town hall meeting in which she barely escaped alive.
On a recent episode of Hannity , Dana doubled down on her analogy that a spoon can be used as an assault weapon. They were talking about gun control , and how the March For Our Loves activists were being used by the Left to advance their gun confiscation agenda.
“You know , Sean ,” she said , “this whole March For Our Lives nonsense smells of Obama and the Democrats. We know they hate guns and will stop at nothing to make sure that every single gun in America is confiscated.”
Sean Hannity : “What are you saying , Dana? Are you saying that the whole thing , that the shooting was a false flag , a staged event to take away guns?”
“No , Sean , that not what I’m saying at all. I’m saying that the March For Our Lives are probably being manipulated by Obama and the Dems. I wouldn’t doubt for a minute that this so-called movement was Obama’s idea. I don’t doubt that he put them up to it. He couldn’t confiscate guns when he was president , so he’s hoping that they’ll be the ones to make his dream come true.”
Sean Hannity : “Good point , Dana. But for a moment there , I thought you might straying into Alex Jones territory.”
Dana , smiling , said ,”Alex Jones is a crackpot , Sean. I’m not. But I’ll tell you something that’s not so crazy. People are killed by cars every year , but nobody talks about banning cars. People are killed by trains every year and nobody talks about banning trains. People are killed by dangerous drugs every year , including marijuana , and nobody talks about banning drugs , including marijuana. Video games kill people every year , and nobody talks about banning video games. The point I’m trying to make here , Sean , is that people are killed by a million things every year , and it’s stupid to want to ban everything.
“You know , Sean , a few years back when I suggested that a spoon could be used as an assault weapon , the mainstream media thought it was a joke. They thought I was a joke. But they’re the joke , because I was right. I’m a gun expert. And because I’m a gun expert , that makes me a spoon expert. So , believe me when I say a spoon really can be used as an weapon to murder people. They also thought it was a big deal when I said that they love mass shootings because it boosts their ratings.”
Hannity : “Yeah , liberal heads literally exploded. Kapow!”
“That’s right , Sean. But what I should have said was they love mass spoonings , because that’s what’s going to happen if the Parkland students , Democrats , and Obama get their way and ban the second amendment. We’re going to see an epidemic of mass spoonings the likes of which we’ve never seen , because there won’t be anymore guns , and when enough people have been killed by spoons , the left will demand background checks on spoon purchases , and then they will march to ban spoons and other kitchen utensils.”
The writer of this article does a whole lot of straw manning of the left , while he’s complaining about the left straw manning.
The left , he says , has shifted the debate from making schools safer to banning guns because they just want to be heroes.
From the first paragraph , the writer goes straight into the biggest pro gun straw man of the left : the entire left want to ban guns , as if there are not just as many liberal gun owners as there are conservative. And if you support gun control , you’re the bad guy. You’re un-American , and a soulless , mushy brained idiot according to people like SpongeTed Squishy Pants Nugent.
The next straw man is how Dana Loesch , who supposedly represents millions of gun owners , are being unfairly smeared as murderers. In other words , they’re the real victims. Not the children who were slaughtered at Sandy Hook elementary school , or the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas. Dana is the victim because some mean liberals called her names and threatened her.
First of all , Dana Loesch doesn’t represent NRA members. She represents the NRA , their interests and her own , nothing else. And no one is accusing NRA members themselves of being complicit in murder. Just the leadership of the NRA , and not without reason.
He then accuses the all-encompassing left of unfairly and viciously misrepresenting their opponents , attacking anyone who disagrees with them. Now I’m willing to admit there is an element on the left that is intolerant , but to falsely characterize the entire left that way , is irresponsible. I would also admit that there are those on the right who are just , if not more , intolerant.
“Amazing straw men are what they’ve created ,” he says with no hint of irony. “With Trump supporters , they’re Nazis. With Loesch they think they’re slaying some magical , all-powerful , fire-breathing NRA dragon. And on the issue of firearms , the decision to grossly demonize their opposition is recycled from their playbook with precision whenever there is an incident where white kids get shot.”
Right wingers also called Obama a Nazi. They called him a Nazi , a socialist and a Marxist over things as benign as healthcare and executive orders , and they called him every other name they could think of , including a Muslim. Every time a mass shooting occurred on his watch they blamed and vilified him. And they call progressives who support a welfare state socialists and racists. How’s that for some amazing straw men?
He says his piece has nothing to do with race , but then he goes right into a favorite right-wing talking point ( a wink and a nod to the racists among his readers , no doubt ) that the animals in Chicago are killing each other at alarming rates , and liberals are cheering in the streets. The pro gun media pundits always manage to throw Chicago and black crime stats into the mix , and in the same breath claim it has nothing to do with race. When they do so , they’re basically saying that black people are more violent and commit more crime because of the color of their skin. “Well , what about Chicago?” they say. In other words , ‘you know how those people are.’
Then its back to mean liberals picking on poor Dana , calling her a c**t on her twitter page. While I dislike Dana Loesch with a passion – she’s a smug , self-righteous hypocrite – I certainly don’t condone that kind of verbal abuse toward anyone , especially a woman. It’s not just wrong , it’s childish. But he would have his readers believe that this type of behavior is found only on the left.
Does he honestly believe that no women on the left have ever been harrasesed and intimidated? A quick trip to Shannon Watt’s twitter page would reveal that she and her children have received their share of death threats and sexual violence. The pro gun extremists , many of whom are followers of Dana Loesch , are far more vicious and vile in their attacks on anyone who supports gun control. Would he acknowledge that fact , or even care? Probably not. In his world , only the left are violent. It’s a scenario they’ve convinced themselves of by constant repetition , and by right-wing media propaganda.
He continues with a false claim , “What’s missing are voices from the left proposing real solutions that will have an impact on actually saving lives.”
If he honestly believes that , then he’s been living in an alternate universe. The left have indeed proposed solutions that would save lives. The MFOL activists have published their manifesto online. It addresses specific solutions that can save lives , solutions that the pro gun extremists scoff at and claim don’t work. What’s actually missing are sane , logical voices on the right , a failure to propose solutions. What are their solutions? More guns. Turning public schools into small prisons , and more guns.
Another absurd statement : “After all , the real question isn’t about guns. It’s how to stop children from committing murder. And the answer to that is much more difficult to come by , which is why it’s avoided at all costs by anti gun activists.”
No , it’s not difficult to understand. The answer is stop allowing people who are mentally incapacitated access to guns. It’s not avoided at all costs by anti gun activists , but it is avoided by pro gun activists.
Once again , he couldn’t resist casting Dana as a helpless victim of leftist rage. “What’s easy is looking at someone you’ve never even met , and labeling her a ‘child killer’ or ‘NRA whore’ , while offering no working solutions to advancing your cause.”
I agree. But if those who follow and support Dana Loesch can claim the moral high ground by labeling someone like former Planned Parenthood CEO Cecil Richards a ‘baby killer’, or calling Shannon Watts the c word , then they have no right to complain when someone does the same to her. Bill O’Reilly repeatedly referred to George Tiller as ‘the baby killer’ , until finally someone killed him. They want to have their cake and eat it too. They want to call anyone who they disagree with the most vile names , but Dana Loesch and her cohorts in the NRA are off-limits.
“What’s difficult is to face the core issue and address how America has managed to create a culture that makes kids want to commit murder instead of play sports or other childhood activities. And who plays the greatest role in shaping culture? Hollywood , the establishment media , and academia – the very people screaming the loudest to ban guns and not address their own culpability in this violence.
America has always been violent. Millions of guns make it more violent and much more dangerous. But it’s not really about guns , conservatives say , it’s really about television , movies and video games. They’re the reasons why we have mass shootings. It has nothing at all to do with guns.
I’ve never heard anyone in Hollywood , mainstream establishment media , or academia screaming about banning guns. This guy , like all pro gun conservatives , lives in a fantasy world where anyone supporting gun control really wants gun confiscation.
“Leftist activists erode their credibility and perform a public disservice by blaming everyone other than the person who pulled the trigger in a Mass shooting. Vilifying Dana Loesch , the NRA or any other innocent third-party does nothing to move the nation toward solutions that prevent murder or to secure Americas schools.”
But the pro gun , right-wing media can do the same and yet lose no credibility with their audience. After the shooting at the Inland Regional Center by a Muslim couple , Dana Loesch came out with her ridiculous video blaming the entire ‘Godless left’ , including Obama , and all Muslims. Conservatives , Dana Loesch and the NRA have no problem with blaming everyone but the shooter when it fits their narrative , but the vilification of Dana and the NRA , again , is off-limits.
“Believing that the next gun law passed will finally be the one that does the trick is demonstrably foolish. Criminals don’t care about the law. Murder and attempted murder are already illegal. Assault with a weapon is already illegal.”
“This is the first generation that has actively campaigned against their own rights. If you lobby for the removal of guns and the second amendment you are depriving yourself of the right to protect yourself and your family from violent criminals.”
Again with the straw man. This generation is not lobbying for the banning of guns and the second amendment. They can’t repeal the second amendment , no one can and no one ever will. Their campaigning for their right to go to school without getting shot. And so far they’ve been successful at it.
“It’s time to restore sanity to this debate. Demonizing the NRA and it’s members is completely counterproductive , and anti gun activists should learn what the rest of us already know : screaming at Dana Leach won’t bring back dead kids.”
There is some sanity in this debate. The voices that are calling for sensible gun control are the sane ones. The voices lacking sanity are the ones that are straw manning the real intentions of the gun control movement with their smears and conspiracy theories. SpongeTed Squishy Pants can call them soulless and mushy brained. Dana Loesch can call them the Godless Left. They can call the activists radicals and extremists. The real radicals and extremists are the pro gun right who will do anything to smear their opponents as un patriotic and un-American.
Screaming at Dana Leach may or may not be counterproductive , but when the NRA finally admits their culpability in gun violence , then perhaps we will leave Dana and the NRA alone. But until that day comes , and I don’t think it ever will , the left will continue screaming at her because it feels good.
Last October , the NRA released another absurd video attacking liberals who protest Donald Trump , as terrorists. In the video , conservative wacko , Dana Loesch , is upset that Trump is being ruthlessly attacked by liberals and progressives without justification. He’s done nothing to deserve this treatment. He’s a wonderful guy! He loves America! He loves God , guns and the constitution! He’s the greatest president we’ve ever had , as opposed to that Kenyan , Muslim usurper , Barack Hussein Obama , who was the worst president , who hated America , God , guns , and the constitution , who couldn’t wait to destroy America , Christianity , Christmas , and take everyone’s guns away. Except , he failed to do any of those things.
The video is hyperbolic and ironic to say the least. Anything conservatives claim liberals are guilty of , they themselves are most certainly guilty of doing. Everything they say about liberals and progressives , is projection. When Obama was in the White House , conservatives like Loesch smeared him as a Marxist , communist , fascist , Kenyan , racist , anti-American Muslim.
“We are witnesses to the most ruthless attack on a president and the people who voted for him , and a free system that allowed it to happen , in American history …”
Does she not realize that some presidents have actually been assassinated? She can’t be this naive. Or maybe she is.
When the Tea Party was protesting the first black president with their racist signs , it was just patriotism , but anyone who dares criticize or protests Trump , it’s a ruthless and unwarranted attack on democracy?
“From the highest levels of government , to their media , their universities , and billionaires …”
Conservatives often complain about liberal elitists in the media , and universities. But have no trouble with their own elites. They have nothing to say about the right-wing think tanks , like the Heritage Foundation , and Freedom Works , who give millions each year to Rush Limbaugh , Glenn Beck , and the American Family Association , to spread their propaganda. Only liberal elites are evil because they hate Trump , and control everything?
“Their hateful defiance of his legitimacy is an insult to us all. But the ultimate insult is that they think we’re so stupid that we’ll let them get away with it. These saboteurs with their leaks and smears , their phony accusations and gagging sanctimony , drive their daggers through the heart of our future , poisoning our belief that honest custody of our institutions will ever again be possible , so they can build their utopia from the ashes of what they burned down. Their fate will be failure , and they will perish in the flames of their own fires. We are the NRA , and we are freedoms safest place.”
It wasn’t hateful defiance of Obama’s legitimacy as president and the system that elected him , when the Tea Party marched with their hateful signs and conservative media tried to sell every anti-Obama conspiracy as news. But it’s smears and phony accusations when someone calls Trump out on his bigotry.
The inability of conservatives like Dana Loesch to see their own hypocrisy , is astounding.
