‘Screaming at Dana Loesch Won’t Prevent Dead Kids’

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.

Dana Loesch Is A Horrible Human Being And The Worst Conservative Commentator On God’s Green Earth

Dana Loesch , NRA shill and loathsome troll. 

 

In a recent broadcast on Fox News Dana Loesch called Al Franken a horrible human being because of his politics , and one of the worst elected officials on God’s green earth. Of course , it’s an absurd claim to make , and only idiots who take her seriously , would believe this and the tons of other bullshit that pour from her pie hole on a daily basis. 

Anyone who is familiar with Al Franken , knows that he is anything but a horrible person. A groper? Perhaps. One of the worst elected officials? Certainly not. If you take a look at his voting record , you will see that Loesch is full of shit. She doesn’t know what she’s talking about. I can think of plenty of other politicians who deserve the title of worst elected official , other than Al Franken , most of them in her very own party , like Roy Moore. But she never will , because she’s a partisan hack. She just doesn’t like Fanken because he’s a liberal. 

On the other hand , if you look into Dana Loesch’s background , you will see that she definitely is a horrible human being. Here are some prime examples of how horrible she is. 

  • She defended Todd Akins’ rape comment. 
  • She excused Gregg Gianforte’s assault on a liberal news reporter , basically saying that maybe the liberal media had it coming. 
  • Claimed on twitter that Philando Castile had weed in his possession when he was shot and killed by a trigger happy law enforcement officer , which was why the NRA was slow to respond.
  • Convinced her fans to start a pity fund for anti-gay bigots at Memories Pizza.
  • Said she would also piss on dead enemy soldiers.
  • She shamelessly promoted the edited videos that smeared ACORN , NPR , Shirley Sherrod , and Planned Parenthood.
  • Has promoted the myth of Muslim no-go zones in Europe and America.
  • Frequently plays the victim. When media watchdogs like Media Matters record every word she says , she accuses them of smearing her , but has no problem smearing others with actual lies. 
  • Along with the rest of right-wing media , she accused Obama and Black Lives Matter of being complicit in the murders of the five Dallas police officers by a black militant during a 2016 BLM protest. 
  • Has constantly attacked the mainstream news media as Obama’s lap dogs , while serving as corporate media’s ( NRA TV , Fox News ) willing lap dog. 
  • Has a history of attacking gun control advocates as extremists out to destroy the second amendment , and subscribed to the conspiracy theory that Obama would confiscate every gun in America.
  • Released a video in December of 2016 calling liberals terrorists. The video was produced by NRA TV,  and released on the very same day that twenty children were blown to pieces with an assault weapon at Sandy Hook elementary school three years previously. The most disturbing thing about the video is not the fact that she cowardly attacked liberals. It was that she used murdered children to attack them. In the video she accused liberals and those who wanted more than thoughts and prayers from our representatives , as being complicit in gun violence. It wasn’t the NRA , or Dana herself , who had blood on their hands because of the fact that they oppose any gun regulations whatsoever , who don’t give a damn that terrorists and mentally ill people can so easily get their hands on assault weapons. No . it was actually liberals and those asking for more than thoughts and prayers , who are really complicit in every mass shooting. 

I could go on for several pages listing all the ways Dana Loesch is a horrible person. But the last example demonstrates just how much of a loathsome human being she really is.  For her to call anyone a horrible human being , she needs to look in the mirror and examine her own hateful politics.

NRA Shill Dana Loesch Attacks Ted Koppel As A Partisan Hack

NRA TV’s Dana Loesch , an unbiased , non-elitist , lone beacon of truth and honesty in a sea of lying libtards.

 

On the March 27 edition of Fox And Friends , Dana Loesch called out veteran television anchorman Ted Koppel as a partisan Hack. 

Loesch : “I grew up watching Ted Koppel be one of the most biased reporters , biased anchors in America. And for him to turn that around , it was one of those moments where you do a double take. But he has been accused of bias throughout his entire career. He is the last person on earth to accuse anyone of being bad for America simply because they are offering opinion. And this is the problem with legacy media. This is why you’ve seen new media crop up , because people are tired of these reporters giving their opinion as unfettered fact , and acting as though there’s no bias on their part whatsoever. I appreciate people who give their opinion and they openly say , ‘this my opinion.’ Like , for me for instance , I’m completely biased toward the constitution and towards natural rights. Obviously everything I talk about is going to be through that perspective. That’s the difference between people like me and people like Ted Koppel , is that we are honest and they are not.”

Pete Hesgeth : “Is he just utterly and completely unaware , just no self-awareness , that he himself would have a bias?”

Loesch : “Yes , and it’s also a huge insult to the American people , who think I don’t need Ted Koppel to come to their rescue. We don’t need Ted Koppel to save us. We’re smart enough to figure out what is propaganda and what is not , and for someone like Ted Koppel to act as like the ombudsman now , considering everything he has done to contribute to this problem , that’s the height of hypocrisy.”

Has there ever been a time when Dana Loesch has opened her pie hole without bullshit and hypocrisy pouring out in torrents? I can’t Think of a single instance. 

Dana , ever the fearless crusader of truth and honesty , is the last person who should pass judgment on anyone in the news media. Ted Koppel has been a well-know and respected news anchor/reporter for decades , long before Dana was out of diapers ; Dana , not so much respected. Over the years she has had a less than stellar record when it comes to truth and honesty. She frequently plays fast and loose with the facts  to suit her own agenda , which is to shill for the Republican party and the NRA so she can keep receiving those checks from the gun lobby. 

She’s a shameless partisan hack who attacks others in the news media as hacks , which is hilarious , given her own background as a clueless hack. 

By new media , I can only assume she means NRA TV. But if she honestly believes that truth and honesty are exclusive to this new media , and everything they report is unfettered fact , she is delusional. And to claim she is more honest than anyone else in mainstream news , is hilarious. 

Apparently , according to Dana , America needs Dana Loesch to come to its rescue. It needs Dana Loesch to save it , because she alone tells the unfettered truth , and even though she clearly has no idea what propaganda is and isn’t , for her to act as though she is the supreme authority on truth and honesty , is the definition of hypocrisy , considering the mountains of dishonest garbage , lies , and BS that pour from her pie hole on a daily basis.

Stupid Conservative Memes #68 Dana Loesch Edition

 

Of course , people like Dana didn’t see any hope or change , because she was one of those conservative pundits masquerading as a journalist , with her head up her ass. If the ACA , which they loved referring to as Obama Care , wasn’t hope and change , what was it? Millions of people who didn’t have health insurance , due to preexisting conditions , now had insurance. To them , it was hope and it was change , compared to the system that previously existed. But Dana and her conservative cronies in the mainstream media , were too busy making up death panels and others conspiracies about the ACA , never bothering to tell their audience that the real death panels are and always have been , and always will be , the private insurance companies , and that the mandate goes all the way back to the conservative think tank , the Heritage Foundation. 

Aviary Photo_131465932231654136  They attacked it for years , claiming it to be socialized , government-run health care , and that it was unconstitutional , even as the Republicans tried unsuccessfully to repeal it countless times. Now we find out in an ironic twist that Republicans – most notably , conservatives like Tomi Lahren – who have been openly condemning it for years , are using it.

In another note of irony , it’s been more than six months since Trump became president , and they still haven’t been able to repeal the law , nor come up with a decent one of their own. Yes , look at where you are now. Stuck with Obama Care. At least for now.

Stupid Conservative Memes # 67 Tomi Lahren Edition

Aviary Photo_131449871421731927.png

🍁 Tomi Lahren is one of those conservatives who often doesn’t have a clue what they are talking about. In this case complaining about mainstream media. It’s ironic that they fail to realize that they themselves are a part of the mainstream media. Any form of entertainment , be it news , radio , movies , television  , and magazines , it’s all mainstream. It makes no difference whether it’s left or right. Rupert Murdoch owns a vast media entertainment empire , including newspapers in the United Kingdom , the United States , dozens of cable channels , and Fox News. Glenn Beck owns a television , radio network of news and entertainment including an internet entertainment channel. Rush Limbaugh is mainstream. Michael Savage is mainstream. Glenn Beck is mainstream. They see themselves as truth and objectivity in a sea of liberalism. They see themselves as “real news” , and anyone else who doesn’t agree with or promote the conservative opinion or view of the world , whether it be entertainment or politics , is “fake news” or has a “liberal bias.” The irony is that pundits  like Dana Loesch , Megan Kelly , Shawn Hannity , Tucker Carlson , and Rush Limbaugh are every bit as elite – earning salaries in the millions – and mainstream as the so-called liberal  mainstream media elites they so often bitch and moan about. And now that Trump is president , they have their heads buried firmly up his ass.  None of them more blatant in their ass licking than  Tomi.

Dana And The Lap Dogs

 

 

Aviary Photo_131447961446248954

An unbiased , elitist , lap dog , lone beacon of truth in a sea of leftist lying libtards.

🍁Dana Loesch is a conservative commentator , AKA a Republican party mouth piece , gun nut , and an eager lap dog for the NRA. She’s currently employed at The Blaze , where truth supposedly lives , despite  little evidence to support this claim. Most liberals know her for the unabashed hypocrite she is , but Dana couldn’t care less about her own hypocrisy. She only cares when it’s liberals who are hypocrites.   

Recently Dana released a video accusing liberals who oppose the new president , of being terrorists. Liberals for the most part , saw it as thinly veiled threat against protesters. Others saw it for the ridiculous video it was ; it was nothing more than a mishmash of anti-liberal talking points , falsehoods , with an over abundance of hypocrisy , designed to appeal to the emotions of the sheep in her audience who will believe every word she says without question. The message : that all those who oppose the new president ( or any Republican president ) are not only unpatriotic , but enemies of freedom.     

The idea that anyone who opposes or even criticizes the current president is unpatriotic or anti-American , is not only absurd , but hypocritical. For eight years Dana and her like-minded lap dogs in the conservative media , which is every bit as main stream , and even more biased as the media she so often criticizes , did nothing but attack and criticize the last president over everything he said and did. He took too many vacations , he played too much golf. He was Hitler for health care reform , he was Hitler for executive orders. They told us he hated America and wanted to destroy it with Ebola , and yet , not one American succumbed to the virus. They told us that he was racist and hated law enforcement , over criticisms of the actions of a white police officer , and that he never attended the funerals of police officers killed in the line of duty , despite attending the services of slain police officers. They told us that he was a Muslim who sided with Muslim terrorists  , while ignoring his drone war on terror in seven different places around the world. 

Dana and her fellow lap dogs in the conservative media often claim to be the sole beacons of truth and accuracy besieged by a liberal media full of bias and lies. If they are so concerned about violence , then why haven’t they reported on the violence and intimidation against minorities since the election of the current president? Southern Poverty Law Center compiled an extensive list  of attacks. Why didn’t she mention any of these incidents in her video? Why didn’t she mention the six , predominantly black southern churches that were burned down from 2014 , to 2016? Why didn’t she mention the nine black parishioners that were gunned down by white supremacist Dylann Roof? Why didn’t she mention the murders of six Muslims outside a Canadian mosque , by Trump supporter  Alexandre Bissonette? Why didn’t she mention the Planned Parenthood shooting by radical Christian Robert Dear , that Ted Cruz claimed was done by a leftist transgender? She never mentioned any of these incidents because it was right wing violence. Violence that Conservatives will never admit to and will never own. By ignoring their own radical extremism , it enables them to continue to peddle their fantasies of a violent , Godless Left.

Stupid Conservative Memes #66 Dana Loesch Edition

Dana Loesch. Republican , NRA lap dog , shill , hypocrite.

The  purpose of the news media is to objectively report news , and to hold government accountable. The news media these days are not interested in truth or objectivity ; their main objective is to make a profit , even at the expense of truth and accuracy , so it’s up to us to be their watch dog.  That’s why we have organizations like Media Matters.

Dana’s problem with the mainstream media – AKA the so-called liberal media – is that it doesn’t tow the Conservative line one hundred percent. Therefore it has a “liberal bias.” The idea that just because there may be a few more left leaning news outlets , there is a huge liberal conspiracy in the media , and that sources like Fox News , The Blaze , and other Conservatives outlets , are the few sole bastions of true and unbiased news. It’s absurd. The Blaze websites bi-line is Truth Lives Here , which is ironic , since it frequently publishes click bait articles , and misinformation taken from other questionable Conservative news sources. Hardly a bastion of truth. 

Dana Loesch complaining about mainstream media bias is not only ironic , but comical , in light of the fact that everyone at The Blaze – herself included – are lap dogs for the Republican party establishment elite. She’s also a lap dog for the NRA.
