Leave Dana Loesch and the NRA alone mean liberals!

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.”

In other words gun control doesn’t work because criminals don’t follow the laws. So , do nothing. But gun control laws do work.

“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.

Stupid Conservative Memes #70 TPUSA Edition

There are several factual errors with this meme. Whether those errors were intentional , or whoever created it , honestly doesn’t care to know the facts.

Black Lives Matter , Antifa , and CAIR , are not hate groups. Black Lives Matter’s purpose is to advocate for victims of police abuse of authority and discrimination. CAIR advocates for the fair treatment of Muslim Americans from anti Muslim bigotry.

The Black Panthers have not been politically active since 1982.

Conservative media and conservatives have never been critical of or condemned white supremacist groups , such as the KKK , the Council Of Conservative Citizens , and other racist , anti government hate groups. One has only to watch it to know that such a claim is factually incorrect. And one has only to look at the types of memes they produce for social media. None of them are ever critical of right wing hate groups. All they do is attack Antifa , Black Lives Matter and progressives , while ignoring violence coming from the right of the political spectrum.

When Barack Obama was in the White House , they incited fear and hatred of Americas first biracial president , calling him a racist , an America hating Muslim who coddled Muslim terrorists , who apologized to its enemies , who hated Israel , who encouraged violence against the police , who left four Americans to die in Benghazi , who was running guns to drug cartels through Fast And Furious , who had gay lovers , who was not eligible to be president because he was obviously born in Kenya.

During the protests of the killings of Michael Brown in Ferguson , and Freddie Gray in Baltimore , Right wing media incited fear and hatred in their viewers and readers by claiming that Black Lives Matter , Obama and progressives were eager to start a race war. Which was comical , since by making such an absurd claim , they themselves were inciting a race war. After the five Dallas police officers were killed by a black supremacist sniper , prominent conservatives like Joe Walsh , Steve King , Fox News , and NRA commentators blamed Obama , BLM , and progressives for their deaths.

Ever since the events in Charlottesville Virginia , when a peaceful , antifascist protester was run down by a white supremacist , their attention has been focused mostly on the group Antifa , and the exaggerated threat from the ‘Left’ , while ignoring the real threat from white supremacists , and other racist and anti government hate groups.

So , when conservatives claim to condemn all hate , my response is , ‘you’re full of shit.’

Dana Loesch : “Donald Trump Subjected To Most Ruthless Attack On A President In American History”

NRA wacko , Dana Loesch.

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.

 

 

 

 

 

A Response To Dana Loesch’s Clinched Fist Of Truth ( Hypocrisy ) Video

Aviary Photo_131435949400122956

NRA lap dog , Dana Loesch.


🍁 In a video reminiscent of her 2015 “Godless Left” rant , rabid NRA lap dog Dana Loesch has released another comical NRA sponsored video , in which she again calls liberals terrorists. Although she doesn’t call for violence against the “violent Godless left” the intent is implied that they are dangerous and must be dealt with by arming themselves with more guns.  

This video , like the last one , was produced for one purpose , and that purpose is to portray liberals as a dangerous threat to freedom and liberty. The Godless Left video was in response to calls for gun control , after the San Bernardino Inland Empire shooting , in which the New York Daily News mocked Republican thoughts and prayers , with the headline

God Isn’t Fixing This , sparking an outrage among Conservatives.  The NRA responded , with their favorite lap dog/shill , Dana Loesch accusing liberals of attempting to destroy their freedom to pray , and that liberals were marching hand in hand with Islamic terrorists , singing Kumbaya , simply for calling for an end to gun violence.

These videos are like self-parodies. Conservatives are completely unaware of the glaring hypocrisy  , but liberals can see right through her for the shameless hypocrite she is. Literally everything she accused liberals of doing , was straight out of the  Obama hater’s playbook.

  1.  “They use their media to assassinate real news.” What does this even mean? Real news? Like The Blaze , where truth lives? Which is ironic , since Dana is currently employed at a network with no more credibility than Fox News , and a host of other questionable sources of yellow journalism , such as World Nut Daily , Town Hall , and The Gateway Pundit , AKA The Dumbest Man On The Internet. I’m sure these are all sources of real , credible news to Dana and much of her audience. I’m sure Jim Hoft’s award-winning ( from Accuracy In Media , no less ) journalism must have inspired her tedious career when she was at CNN. Also ironic , Dana has been using her platform to call everything else that doesn’t tow the Conservative line , as fake news. 
  2. “They use their schools to teach children that our president is another Hitler.”
    She states this as if it’s fact , with no evidence to back it up. However ,
    I do recall for the last eight years that Dana and her cronies in the media , attacked a certain president over everything from health care reform ( AKA as Obama Care ) , foreign policy , to gun control , often referencing him not only to Hitler , but every other dictator in modern times. And they used their media to tell their viewers that he hated America , was a communist , and was a friend to Islamic terrorists.
  3. “They use their stars and award shows to advance their narrative over and over again.” I wonder what that narrative could possibly be. Could it possibly be speaking out against police abuse of authority? I understand this is something that’s frowned upon by wing nut Conservatives who believe the police can do no wrong , and anyone who criticizes them must be cop haters , like they accused Obama of hating cops because he had the audacity to question police authority where killings were unjustified.
    It wasn’t too long ago they were using their own celebrities like The Motor City Loudmouth , Rush Limbaugh , and numerous pundits like Tomi Lahren , Janine Pirro , and everyone else at Fox News , to advance their own narratives , that Obama was an anti-white racist , and a cop hater , over situations ranging from criticizing a white cop for arresting a Harvard Law professor in his own home , the events in Ferguson , Baltimore , benign comments on the tragic deaths of several police officers , and a seventeen year old black teenager. Just because he didn’t side with the racist narrative that George Zimmerman was the victim and Martin the aggressor , made him a racist? Not God damn likely.
  4. “They use their ex-president to endorse their resistance.” Apparently , according to Dana , Obama must be directing thousands of Trump haters to loot and destroy property , via mind control , with chips implanted in their heads.
    All to make them march , make them protest” – I doubt they need Obama to motivate them to march , to protest. Trump’s behavior is all the motivation they need – “Make them scream racism” – The irony here is thick enough to cut with a knife – “Sexism , xenophobia , homophobia , smash windows , burn cars , shut down interstates” – I’m sure Trump marchers have never done that , have they? – “airports , bullying and terrorizing the law-abiding” – again , Trump supporters have never done that , have they? There are armed militia wandering the streets in “open carry” states intimidating citizens ; there were armed  militia defending the Bundy ranch ; there were armed Oath Keepers and other militia who had taken over the Malheur wildlife sanctuary , but according to Dana , it’s the left who are doing the intimidating- “until the only option left is for the police to do their jobs and stop the madness.”
    When she mentioned racism , I doubt she was thinking that not too long ago it was her side that was screaming racism at Obama , when pundits and right-wing nut bloggers like John “Obama’s an anti-white racist” Hawkins of Right Wingnut News , and Jim “The Gateway Pundit” Hoft , were making fools of themselves trying to convince their  dense readers that Obama was a rabid anti-white racist , with no evidence to back up their claims.
    Just as I’m sure she was not thinking of the birther movement. She and many of her audience may not have outright endorsed it , but there is no evidence that they denounced it.
    When she mentioned sexism , I doubt she thinking of the many instances when her totally not sexist buddies , Rush Limbaugh , and Ted Nugent demeaned Democratic women like Sandra Fluke , Hillary Clinton , and Nancy Pelosi.
    When she mentioned homophobia , I doubt she was thinking about the wing nut melt down over the Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage. Nor was she thinking of the time she was moved to tears over the pizza store bigots who refused to bake a pizza for a gay couple , and subsequently started a Go Fund Me account for the true victims – the pizza store owners , that is. If these people had been refusing to bake a pizza for Christians , imagine the stink Dana and her cronies at The Blaze would have raised. It would have given them a legitimate reason to bitch and moan. But , no , it’s the gays who are the real bigots for calling them on their bigotry.
    During the Obama years , the Obama hating “patriots” moaned incessantly about free speech , and oppression under Obama , even as they burned his effigy , called him a communist , a socialist  , a Muslim terrorist , anti-Christian , a racist , a cop hater , compared him countless times to Hitler , claimed he hated America , wasn’t an American ,  and if anyone dared criticize them , or push back , they were often accused of playing the race card.

     All these videos have demonstrated , is that Conservatives like Loesch are disingenuous. They don’t really care about honesty. All they care about is furthering their own agenda , and that agenda is to sell more guns despite the countless children that will be massacred , and transform America into an armed police state , where any form of dissent by their political enemies – liberals – is seen as treasonous. They ultimately succeed in making themselves look foolish by accusing liberals of the very same tactics they engage in.

    Update : I often wonder if images like these haunt shameless hypocrites like Dana Loesch , who believe basic gun control is a violation of their second amendment right. Hypocrites who accuse others of having blood on their hands , while defending and making excuses for those who truly do have blood on their hands :
