Dana Loesch: “Democrats Screeching And Raging About Trump’s Lynching Comment Gladly Call Gun Owners Terrorists”

https://dailycaller.com/2019/10/22/dana-loesch-lynching-terrorists/

Dana Loesch is a fierce defender of the second amendment, and her stance on gun control, which she opposes.

As a former spokesperson for the NRA, Loesch is known for berating the mainstream media as dishonest, which is ironic, since she has a long history of engaging in dishonesty herself, usually at the expense of just about anyone who disagrees with her. In other words, when Dana speaks, irony dies a screaming death.

When she isn’t complaining about the dishonest legacy media that is allegedly trying to silence conservatives like herself, she’s complaining about being smeared, as she is often smearing others. Dana, like most conservatives of her ilk, are unable to take criticism, and melt like the little snowflakes they are. Last year, after the CNN town hall, she ran to Fox News to cry about how unfairly she was treated, and that she had nearly been lynched by a mob of violent, gun grabbing leftists. Security cameras showed her calmly walking out of the building.

A dishonest hack, who once recently claimed on Fox News that she is not partisan, released a video last year in which she attacked the mainstream media with this ironic gem:

We’ve had enough of the lies, the sanctimony, the arrogance, the hatred, the pettiness, the fake news. We are done with your agenda to undermine the voters’ will, and individual liberty in America. So, to every lying member of the media… to those who stain honest reporting with partisanship, to those who bring bias and propaganda to CNN, The Washington Post and the New York Times. Your time is running out. The clock starts now.”

Dana Loesch lecturing anyone on dishonesty, sanctimony, and arrogance, is hilarious to say the least. Dana feels comfortable judging others from her lofty perch, berating the media for everything she is guilty of – dishonesty, bias, and fake news, without a hint of irony of her own partisan hackery. She blames the so called liberal media of undermining the will of voters and individual freedom, when in reality it has been the Republican party that has actually undermined the will of the American voters by refusing gun control legislation to be voted on, and purging thousands of eligible voters in many states because they’re afraid they can’t win an election fairly without cheating, and then claim it’s Democrats that engage in questionable tactics. She blames the media for distorting honest reporting with partisanship and propaganda. Has she ever watched herself on NRATV? Her program, Relentless, was nothing but partisan BS and propaganda.

Loesch not only has a problem with any media that doesn’t tow a strictly conservative bias, but she has a problem with diversity, believing it to be a Marxist plot or some such nonsense. Last year on her NRATV program, Relentless, she put white hoods on Thomas The Tank characters to supposedly mock the libs on their identity politics obsession, and then played the victim card when criticized. She also has a problem with Black Lives Matter, falsely labeling them a hate group, and blamed them and Obama for the deaths of police officers in 2016.

These days, one of Loesch’s favorite peeves is whining about how law abiding gun owners are unfairly smeared as terrorists, but it’s nothing more than a favorite talking point that gun nuts in right wing media, like Loesch, repeat whenever the NRA comes under criticism. Which she gladly repeated during a recent segment on Fox News’s favorite show for white nationalists, Tucker Carlson Tonight.

Loesch was among the many conservatives in the media that clutched their collective pearls over former Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke’s announcement of a gun buy back program if he were elected president. O’Rourke has since dropped out of the race, but Loesch has continued her tour of the right wing echo chamber warning of the dangers and threats to the sacred second amendment posed by violent leftist mobs that will show up at their doors to confiscate their guns, and lynch them in the process.

They also clutched their pearls over the San Francisco board of supervisor’s alleged announcement of all five million NRA members as domestic terror threats, which has had great American Patriots like Dana Loesch clutching their pearls along with their guns.

Carlson started the segment by whining about the Democratic parties alleged gun confiscation rhetoric, and the NRA being unfairly being labeled a terrorist organization.

They’re saying this for a reason, ” he said. “They’re telling you the people who have a 12 gauge at home to defend themselves are terrorists. They are setting it up to do something to those people. No?”

No. None of the Democratic candidates has ever referred to law abiding gun owners as terrorists, and the city of San Francisco’s board of supervisor’s did not call them terrorists. Conservatives who make that claim, are being disingenuous. The board was referring to the executives who run the organization because of their extremist opposition to any gun control and their use of propaganda to increase membership and gun sales.

Loesch then defended Trump’s tweet that he was being unfairly lynched by the Democrats for no other reason because they hate him, and that “these same law makers have been calling innocent, law abiding Americans, referring to them as quote, ‘domestic security threats and terrorists,” when in reality they have not.

If Obama had been the one caught making a quid pro quo with a foreign power, attempting to dig up some dirt on a Republican opponent, conservatives would be losing their s**t. When they claimed that Obama had illegally spied on the Trump campaign, without any evidence, we were all expected to believe it, but now that the shoe is on Trump’s foot, there is absolutely no evidence that he did anything wrong, even though there have been hearings where witnesses have testified that he did.

“Yeah, that ‘lynching’ is just noise,” Carlson said. “But I think you’re absolutely right. So, just to be clear, they are calling Americans who committed no crime, who pose no threat, who merely want to exercise their constitutional right, a terrorist? But what do you do to terrorists?”

Loesch criticized Bernie Sanders for wanting to allow convicted felons to vote, that AOC wants to end Mass incarceration of ( non violent ) criminals, and that the commie socialist Democrats want to implement the Red Flag law as an incentive to take guns away from law abiding citizens while they’re simultaneously smearing them as terrorists.

Conservatives can cry and whine all they want about the radical left coming for their guns, but in the real world it’s never going to happen. The gun lobby – the NRA and other gun rights groups – is too powerful, and because of that influence Republicans have blocked gun reform every step of the way, despite public support for universal background checks at an all-time high, approximately 90% according to Politifact. Even a majority of NRA members ( about 70% ), again according to Politifact, support universal background checks. But Dana Loesch won’t admit that fact. She believes gun control is evil, and unconstitutional, which proves she is anything but patriotic. Last year, after the Thousand Oaks, CA shooting, she tweeted this little gem:

“What happened was horrific. Evil is real. So are CA gun laws:

Universal background checks

May Issue

10 round mag limit

Purchase limitations

10 day waiting period

No reciprocity with other states

Assault weapons ban & registration

Ammo thru FFL

Registration if moved https://t.co/IGG6HxxUrc

Don’t expect hoards of leftist mobs to confiscate guns from law abiding citizens any time soon. It’s the wet dream of every gun nut like Dana Loesch and Tucker Carlson. If it were to happen, it would be in a world without the NRA, and the politicians they own. You can rest assured that Dana and Tucker will bravely fight the crazed hoards of gun grabbing leftists.

Howard Kurtz: ‘Horribly unfair’ for media to blame Trump for mass shootings | Fox News

https://www.foxnews.com/media/mass-shootings-el-paso-dayton-trump-media

Since the latest mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, right-wing media commentators have been falling over themselves to deflect any responsibility for the tragedies, away from the president.

On Sunday night’s Media Buzz, host Howard Kurtz decried the media’s reaction to the shootings, saying that it was unfair to place the blame on president Trump.

We just heard Beto O’Rourke saying on CNN that president Trump actually encouraged this sort of thing, with what he said after Charlottesville. And I knew this was coming. It’s the pattern after every shooting. Often it’s about gun control.

“I understand that the president’s actions and verbiage are going to be a part of this debate – but to suggest that he’s responsible, that he’s encouraging, that he’s condoning the actions of a crazed gunman, seems to me to be horribly unfair on the media’s part. Politicians can do it, they’re running for office. But should the media tolerate this?”

Has the media gone a little over the top in their accusations that Trump is to blame? Yes, and no. Yes, he shares a responsibility through the divisive language he has used, especially in regard to immigration. Is he directly responsible? Certainly not. He didn’t pick up a gun himself and pull the trigger. But his language when speaking of illegal immigrants, referring to them as criminals, and rapists, and referring to them as an invading horde that must be stopped, certainly play a partial role.

Conservative panelist Katherine Timpf claims to disagree with the language used by the president regarding immigration, but also believes it’s unfair of the media to blame him.

“Unfair is the word that I would use here,” she said, “and I say this as someone who has had problems with some of the things Trump has said about immigration in the past. I certainly do not agree with Trump on immigration.”

At a recent rally Trump asked, “How do you stop these people?” To which, someone in the audience shouted, “You shoot them!” “Only in the pan handle can you get away with that!” Trump replied.

Do conservatives like Timpf and Kurtz – whom are both considered to be intelligent – actually believe that some unhinged person was not going to hear that and not act on it? Apparently so. Conservatives who support Trump don’t seem to understand this, and obviously don’t care to.

Timpf continued: “However, I’ve seen a few columns. There’s one in the Intercept basically saying the same thing Beto is saying, that Trump is responsible for this, and that’s just insane. Obviously Trump doesn’t want to see all these people murdered. Nobody wants to see something like this. They’re crazed lunatics. And if this manifesto does turn out to be from this shooter then yes, I would definitely call it domestic terrorism, and white supremacist, anti- immigrant terrorism… but to blame president Trump, that’s just – illogical, in addition to being unfair.”

Kurtz brought up the ridiculous notion that the same level of blame could be assigned to Barack Obama concerning his rhetoric against law enforcement officers after their deaths, which he added would be wrong.

“The president has already issued a statement calling this a hateful act, and a cowardly act. At the same time I feel a sense of deja vu. During the Obama administration sometimes when police officers were killed, certain conservative commentators would go on air and say ‘Obama has blood on his hands because of his anti-law enforcement policies. Well, he did not and president Trump did not.

“It’s fair to challenge his rhetoric and handling of the immigration Issue. But to suggest that he would in any way be condoning the shooting of so many innocent people is something the media needs to be really careful about.”

Whether Kurtz is aware of it or not, he’s wrong. The same level of responsibility could not be assigned to Obama. Obama had no anti-law enforcement policies. He never engaged in anti-police rhetoric; he never stated that he hated the police, or even spoke negatively of law enforcement, despite what conservatives claimed.

He never engaged in divisive language when criticizing his political opponents. He never told his Republican counterparts – especially those of color – to go back to Africa. He never publicly referred to Republican run cities as ‘rat-infested,’ or crime ridden. He never accused Republicans who criticized his policies of being un-American. He never accused his political opponents of having sympathies to terrorist organizations.

Ironically, it was Obama who Republicans told to go back to Africa, who they accused of being un-American, of having terrorist sympathies.

Timpf brought up the media’s double standard concerning the Steve Scalise shooting.

Remember the shooting at the congressional baseball game? That guy was a Bernie supporter and nobody brought that up.”

Whether Timpf was aware of it or not, she was also wrong. It was mentioned in the media.They just never assigned blame to Bernie Sanders because he never engaged in violent rhetoric leading up to the shooting. But there were many in right-wing media who very willing to tie him to Sanders. Several of them were Fox News commentators. Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, and Eric Bolling, not only blamed Bernie Sanders for inspiring Hodgkinson, but the entire left.

Since the shootings occurred, the president and some of his supporters in media have been engaging in what about isms. “What about the shootings under Obama?” They have been asking. Nobody blamed him.”

As I have previously mentioned, he was blamed not only for the rash of police deaths, but also for the rash of Islamic terror attacks at home and abroad, because he wouldn’t use the politically correct term when denouncing those attacks.
