Recently, Dana Loesch in her bid to remain relevant and influential, appeared in a series of cringy videos with the help of the NRA by promoting herself as a moral crusader for truth.
Who does Dana think she’s fooling? No one but her ignorant followers, who believe she actually stands for truth and honesty. Liberals and progressives responded to her smug, pompous, arrogant, and sanctimonious bulls**t videos, and in turn she played the victim when criticized, like she always does.
Every story she ran on Benghazi on her ridiculous radio show, The Conservative Alternative, while ignoring the Congressional reports, she exposed herself as the conspiratorial clown she is. As a shill for the Right, and the gun lobby, she continues to embarrass herself with the bulls**t claim that the Benghazi attack had nothing to do with that particular video.
Every conspiracy theory that she repeated about Planned Parenthood… she exposed herself as the useful idiot and propagandist that she is…
Every false claim about the AHCA ( Obamacare ) exposed her as the disingenuous hack she is.
Every unhinged attack on Colin Kaepernick, exposed her as a white nationalist.
Every false claim about Chicago and black on black crime… every lie about Black Lives Matter… the time she put white hoods on the heads of Thomas The Tank cartoon characters when she was at NRA TV, exposed her as a racist. If Dana feels comfortable with calling Elizabeth Warren a racist, then I feel comfortable calling her the same. At least, I can back up my claim with actual evidence.
Every false claim she made that Americans don’t support gun control… every unhinged attack on the Never Again movement as shills for the Left and George Soros, she exposed herself as a shill for the NRA, and an anti-Semite.
Every criticism of Ilhan Omar as anti-Semitic for criticizing the Israeli government’s treatment of Palestinians, she exposes herself as an Islamophobe.
Every video she produced for the NRA, exposed her for what she is… a fascist.
Real Americans have had it with her false narratives, her lies, her propaganda and fake news. They’ve had it with her self-righteous attitude that she is in any way objective or fact based.
Dana has subsisted on the welfare of mediocrity, propaganda, and dishonesty for years, and yet she has the f**king audacity to attack CNN, MSNBC, and other so-called liberal outlets for the exact same things she is guilty of.
She is the definition of a demagogue, and a hypocrite.
In the wake of the El Paso shooting, Dana Loesch appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight to complain about not being invited to the CNN Town Hall on gun violence, and how unfortunate and unfair it was that gun control proponents were continuing to push their shameful agenda of wanting to prevent future shootings from occurring.
“I wasn’t invited to participate,” she told Carlson. “I always go everywhere good discussion is happening or where I think I can have some kind of impact in terms of bringing factual arguments, reason-based arguments to the subject, because it’s incredibly important. So, they didn’t ask me.”
She certainly failed to bring factual and reason based arguments to the previous town hall. All she did was deflect blame and lie. As a representative of the most powerful and influential gun lobby, that routinely and legally bribes politicians to oppose any gun control legislation despite the fact that a majority of Americans want stricter gun laws, she took no responsibility for the mass proliferation of guns on American streets. Instead, like the true coward that she is, she blamed the Parkland shooting on the Florida Sheriff’s department, and in particular, Scott Israel.
She’s also a narcissist who loves to play the victim at every opportunity, which she took full advantage of by claiming that the 2018 town hall was totally unfair and one sided against her and the NRA, failing to grasp the fact that people were understandably upset that high school students had just been murdered by a former student who had been trained to shoot by the NRA.
After the town hall, she ran to CPAC, where she made odious statements, and then to Fox News where she lied about how she barely made it out of the building alive.
Perhaps these reasons had something to do with the fact that she was not invited.
Regarding Chris Cuomo – who is allegedly pro gun control – as a neutral moderator of 2019’s town hall:
“I think that’s asking a lot of viewers to sort of suspend their reality and accept him as a neutral individual. I don’t think they can.”
“Yeah,” Carlson said. “There’s nothing neutral about him.”
Compared to people like Carlson and Loesch, he’s been a hell of a lot more neutral when interviewing guests on CNN, and like every journalist and commentator on the network, often allowing conservatives to lie through their teeth without challenging them. Right wingers often absurdly claim that CNN is a liberal network , but if that’s the case, why do they always fail to take the liberal or progressive side on an issue? It’s anything but liberal.
Dana, and Tucker Carlson would have no problem with herself, or anyone else who is a pro gun nut, as a moderator. Anything else is biased and unfair.
Carlson then asked her about Joe Biden’s scary remarks about sending jack booted thugs to the homes of law abiding gun owners to demand they surrender their guns.
“Wow. I’m amazed at this argument from individuals who say that you can’t deport people who enter the country illegally because there’s too many of them, but yet at the same time, they say you can go door to door to millions of homes and you can take a perfectly legally owned, legal to own objects from law abiding innocent people. You’re confiscating guns by force. What are you going to use to take people’s guns? Guns!”
I’m not aware of anyone – Democrat or otherwise – claiming it’s impossible to deport illegal aliens because there are just too many, but you can go to millions of homes to illegally seize guns. However, I am aware that what people like Dana Loesch are conveniently ignoring, is the “gun buy back” part of the argument. They ignore it because their intent is to stoke the fear of the gun nut crowd that the Democrats are only interested in illegally confiscating their precious guns, instead of compensating them financially.
And does she honestly believe that government agents want to, or even have the time, to go door to door just to confiscate millions of guns? If she does, then she’s delusional.
They always claim that Democrats, the Left, and liberals, want to repeal the second amendment. Never mind the fact that Democrats, liberals, and leftists also own guns.
It’s never going to happen. But that’s the mind set of these people. They see themselves as victims of a tyranny imposed by a majority of Americans who want stricter gun control laws because they’re sick and tired of seeing children slaughtered in schools with weapons that should be illegal.
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:
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.
“The depraved national media has done a great disservice to David Hogg and to the American people.”
On February 14, 2018, Nikolas Cruz walked into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland Florida armed with a semi automatic rifle, killing seventeen and injuring many others.
In the after math of the massacre, the student survivors rallied to start a grass roots movement to petition for stricter gun laws – an assault weapons ban, a ban of high capacity magazines, and universal background checks – which included the formation of Never Again MSD, and the nation wide March For Our Lives rallies.
As a result, a number of states passed a number of minor gun control laws. Florida passed the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act.
The NRA and the pro gun media didn’t take kindly to traumatized teenagers who had survived a shooting in their school, saying enough is enough. Nor did they like the fact that these teenagers were intelligent enough to organize a protest movement virtually without help from adults. But what bothered them most of all – especially the NRA – was that these no nothing little brats didn’t kowtow to the absolute authority and greatness of the NRA. It absolutely stuck in their craw. Instead of bowing in subservience to the NRA like our cowardly politicians, our federal law makers ( the majority of them Republicans ) do on a daily basis, they gave the NRA the middle finger, because they understood they are corrupt, and bribe congress not to pass any gun control legislation.
It stuck in their craw that people were angry at the NRA, and rightly so, so they sent their mouth piece Dana Loesch to parrot their talking points and deflect blame for the tragedy onto sheriff Scott Israel, instead of looking at Americas lax gun laws. And after the town hall, Loesch appeared on Fox News to whine about how the town hall had been staged just to inflame emotions – despite the fact that emotions had already been inflamed by the shooting – to make her and the NRA look bad – she did a great job of that herself without help from anyone – and how she, the NRA, and law abiding gun owners were the real victims, a false talking point pro gun conservatives continuously trot out whenever the NRA receives any criticism for its extreme pro gun policies. Fox News, Breitbart, Newsmax, Right-Wing News, Redstate, Town Hall, World Net Daily, all heroically came to Loesch’s rescue, echoing her complaints about how unfairly she had been treated by the depraved, biased media. Give me a f**king break. Cry me a f**king river.
Which brings me to the linked article. He believes it was the depraved so called liberal media that was abusing David Hogg because they allowed him to speak untruths about the NRA and Dana Loesch, both of whom shall forever remain blameless:
“The NRA is blameless. The blame lies solely with the shooter and law enforcement, from the federal level to sheriff Scott Israel’s department, to protect the children. But the students who point that out ( Kashuv ) only get airtime on Fox News, while the other cable networks promote Hogg as he continues to say things that are just plain wrong.“
Like the fact that the NRA and our politicians share a responsibility in this tragedy? Yeah, that’s totally wrong. It’s really those god damned teenagers that want to confiscate everyone’s guns, and do away with the precious second amendment. That’s the problem they should have been focusing on, not the fact that seventeen people had just been murdered with a semi automatic.
Not only is the shooter to blame, but the local sheriff’s department, and the FBI. The only parties that are blameless, are the NRA, and our state and federal law makers. How convenient. The NRA buys politicians to do their bidding, which is to have a pro gun, anti gun control agenda, but they share no responsibility in this tragedy.
I’m surprised he didn’t find an excuse to blame Obama for the shooting, like they blamed him for every shooting when he was president.
Less than a week after the shooting, Florida law makers couldn’t bring themselves to a discussion of an assault weapons ban, much less pass one. Instead, they chose to condemn pornography as a public health hazard! That’s how f**ked up these a**holes and their priorities are, and it demonstrates their willingness to allow the NRA to lead them around by the genitals at the expense of the lives of others.
“News anchors do not correct him. They don’t challenge his untruths. The media has turned Hogg into a spectacle, parading his activist statements in prime time and giving him a platform to spread immature and unserious attacks against those who stand against gun control. The media is wielding his tongue as a sword and his suffering as a shield to advance its narrative and deflect criticism. In doing so, they are teaching him that his attacks are good and right and are encouraging him.”
Twenty children were slaughtered at Sandy Hook Elementary. Fifty eight at a concert in Las Vegas. Seventeen at Marjory Stoneman High School. If you’re someone who denies the reality of gun violence; if you’re someone who believes America has too many gun laws ( insanely weak laws by the way, that allow anyone to have a gun ); if you believe standing against gun control is a noble cause; if you’re someone who gets their f**king jollies off at smearing traumatized kids; if you’re more concerned about your feelings than those who were traumatized in a school shooting, then you’re part of problem, not the solution. You’re likely not interested in a solution. So, shut the fuck up, and sit the f**k down. Let the children speak, the children, in this case, who actually know what they’re talking about, have reasonable demands, most of them supported by a great majority of Americans, and are acting more mature than the Dana Loesch’s, SpongeTed Squishy Pants, and their gun loving groupies.
He’s upset that Hogg and the other student activists are speaking out about gun violence, and didn’t bend the knee to the almighty NRA; that gun control and those who advocate for it are bad people, while those who oppose it are noble heroes fighting a noble cause.
The great irony here is that he decries the alleged immaturity of Hogg’s criticisms as untruths. But he has nothing to say about the actual immaturity of the actual lies and attacks directed at them from conspiracy minded wack job conservatives, who were encouraged in their attacks from the likes of Alex Jones, The Gateway Pundit, World Net Daily, and from the mainstream right-wing media, like Fox News. How the students were co opted by left-wing socialists, funded by Soros, were gun grabbing Nazis, mushy brained and soulless, civil terrorists for criticizing the NRA, and wanting to murder law abiding gun owners , even as they themselves were threaten with death from unhinged gun extremists on social media.
To many pro gun nuts this kind of behavior is acceptable, is not depraved. Nor, it would seem, are death threats against kids who ask for gun control. In their minds, what is depraved, is wanting gun control, and criticizing the NRA, which, apparently is taboo.
Trump loving Republicans and their state run media ( Trump TV , Fox , Newsmax , NRATV ) and print ( Breitfart , Town Hall , World Nut Daily , Rightwing News , American Thinker , etc. ) , were convinced that Barack Obama was worse than one of histories most notorious authoritarian dictators. He was also a radical socialist , Marxist communist , and a radical , anti American Muslim who was soft on radical Islamic terrorism.
He was like Hitler in every way they said he was :
The Affordable Care Act , or Obama care. It’s common knowledge these days that Obama murdered millions of Americans with the death panels in the Affordable Care Act. Just like Hitler did.
Abortion. Did you know that Obama is also personally responsible for every abortion every woman in Americahas ever had? He really is like Hitler!
Gun Control. Like Hitler , Obama cried fake crocodile tears over the children massacred at Sandy Hook Elementary , and then confiscated every single gun in America , and in the process rounded up roughly 300 million gun owners into FEMA prison camps , where they remained until Saint Donald came along , liberated them and gave them back their guns.
Immigration. Obama killed more Americans during his two terms with immigration reform , just like Hitler did. Michael Savage said so , so it must be true.
The anti nuke Iran Deal. According to Mike Huckabee , like Hitler , Obama killed millionsof Jews , personally marching them toward the Auschwitz ovens , just like Hitler did , when he allowed Iran to build nuclear weapons.
Executive Orders. Apparently , Obama ruled by decree with a pen and a phone , just as Hitler did.
For eight years , conservative Republicans convinced themselves they were living in a dictatorship akin to Nazi Germany. Now that their favorite reality star is president , they’re butt hurt that liberals and progressives are giving Trump the same respect they gave Obama.
Irony and hypocrisy means nothing to these morons.
Here’s a story from the Daily Wire , Ben Shapiro’s website.
Earlier this month Stephen King tweeted a fact that apparently didn’t go over well with conservatives on twitter.
In response to the conservative outcry over the death of college student Mollie Tibbetts at the hands of an undocumented immigrant , King tweeted :
“This is textbook whataboutism ,” Shapiro writes. “Why in the world should we ignore crime by illegal immigrants because a white man killed 58 people in Vegas?”
Shapiro couldn’t be more wrong. King was merely stating a fact by pointing out the hypocrisy of conservatives in their selective outrage. No one has ever suggested that anyone should ignore crimes by illegal immigrants or otherwise. The whole point of King’s tweet , which was obviously lost on conservatives like Shapiro ( who the right reveres as an intellectual ) was that a white American male murdered 58 people , and there was no outcry from the right as there was with the death of Mollie Tibbetts , and there certainly was no attempt to generalize all white Americans just because the majority of them have been mass shooters. The right wants to prevent illegal immigration , but they would rather ignore gun violence by shrugging it off with , ‘Well , these things happen. What can you do?’
In the death of Mollie Tibbetts , how quickly conservatives scream for justice , but when 58 Americans are murdered by a white male shooter , there are no cries for justice , no calls for change. Instead we get the usual song and dance : gun control doesn’t work ; a good guy with a gun will always stop a bad guy with a gun ; it wouldn’t have happened without gun free zones ; and their two favorites , smear the victims , and thoughts and prayers.
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.
Liberal hating Conservatives live in an alternate reality with alternate facts , and they have their own alternate language with an alternate definition. And those alternate facts are that all liberals are evil , America hating authoritarians who want to destroy free speech. To an extent , this is true. There is a fringe minority of liberals who want to shut out Conservative speech and ideas , just as there is a fringe minority of Conservatives who are just as authoritarian and want to shut down debate. This is evident whenever liberals bring up racial profiling , or police abuse against unarmed people of color , they get accused of playing the race card , of race baiting. They’ve constructed this bullshit argument that you can’t disagree with a liberal , or Obama without being called a racist. It’s an accusation that’s designed to shut down their opponents , while pretending they are the real victims of racism at the hands of liberals.
Liberals , for the most part , will admit when they are wrong. That’s the difference between liberals and Conservatives. Conservatives like Rush Limbaugh , John Hawkins , and Mark Levin , are convinced beyond any doubt that their ‘team’ is always right , can do no wrong , and that they are the only ones who are capable of loving their country. Which is bullshit.
Here are twenty terms that Conservatives have constructed their own reality around.
1) OBAMA CARE : Socialism. Government take over of health care. Socialized medicine. Worse than slavery , the holocaust , 9/11. Contains death panels. Reparations for slavery. The largest tax increase in American history. Total enslavement.
2) TAXES : Evil. Government greed. Taxing the lower class … capitalism. Taxing the wealthy … socialism.
4) TERRORIST. Muslim. “Not all Muslims are terrorists , but all terrorists are Muslims.” All Muslims are guilty by default.
5) WHITE TERRORIST/SHOOTER : Mentallyilllonewolf. Don’t blame the white guy. Conservative wind bag Mark Levin swore up and down on his radio show , that the confederate flag had no connection to Dylann Roof’s shooting spree. That the liberal media was just making it all up.
6) CORRUPT COPS WHO SHOOT OR MURDER UN-AMRMED CIVILIANS : Victims smeared by a liberal media. Heroes.
7) UNARMED BLACK INDIVIDUALS KILLED BY BAD COPS : Thugs.
8) BARACK OBAMA : Communist/Marxist/socialist ( because the N word is no longer appropriate ). Hates America.
9) THE SOCIAL SAFETY NETS , i.e. , WELFARE , FOOD STAMPS , etc. : Socialism.

These are just a few of the shooting that have occurred this year.

And of course , who can forget the twenty children and six adults who were fatally shot by Adam Lanza with a Bushmaster rifle , at Sandy Hook Elementary School , in New Town Connecticut on December 14 , 2012?
Gun control activists call for stricter gun control legislation that would prevent assault weapons from getting into the hands of criminals. Paranoid gun loving fanatics , vehemently oppose such legislation , claiming that criminals will get them anyway , and claiming that any gun control is an infringement of their second amendment rights. It would seem that they care more about their guns than saving the lives of others from gun violence. After a shooting takes place , in typical fashion , gun fanatics often blame the victims for not being armed , the mentally ill , liberals , or Obama … anyone and everything but the shooter. They repeat the same nonsense that gun free zones attract gun violence , and that more guns are the solution.
Jan Morgan is a typical Tea Party paranoid gun loving patriot. She represents thousands of paranoid gun fanatics all across America who share an unhealthy obsession with firearms , and who view themselves as “true patriots” for their fanatical love of guns , and their intense hatred of liberals , progressives , Barack Obama , and anyone who doesn’t subscribe to their radical views on guns. She is a gun range owner and a self professed second amendment expert. Recently she sparked a bit of a controversy when she announced that her business was Muslim free , vowing to refuse weapons training to “the next potential Muslim terrorist” , but obviously not too concerned about the possibility of training a non Muslim terrorist. At a 2013 Gun Appreciation Day rally , she proudly – and falsely – pronounced that ninety million gun owners with over three hundred million guns , killed no one the previous year … conveniently ignoring the fact that events like Sandy Hook , and the Aurora Colorado theatre shootings , were carried out by gun owners , whether they were sane or not.
She’s written a book – Hands Off My Guns! How Obama And Liberals Are Destroying The Second Amendment God Given Rights Of Patriotic Gun Loving Americans – bashing liberals and Obama for taking her guns away , even though Obama has shown no indication of coming close to doing so.
“My book is a sequel to Dana Leoschs’ book , Hands Off My Guns Obummer!” She told Rachel Maddow. “Dana asked me recently if I would like to do a sequel to her book , and since she and I are so much alike – we both love our guns , you know , so much that we would rather die than let the communist leftist liberals and Obama get their hands on them – I told her I would be thrilled to help her write a sequel. We both know how important it is to get the word out that the communist liberals and Obama can’t wait to take our guns away. They’re just itching for Obama to use executive action. And since the Oregon State University shooting , we knew the book would be especially important since Obama’s remarks about the shooting were so unbelievably appalling , which obviously is to be expected since he’s a Muslim lover.”
Rachel : “What do you mean , appalling?”
Jan : “When he said the deaths of the students were routine , trivial , as if they meant nothing to him.”
Rachel : “I don’t think that’s what he was talking about , Jan. Correct me if I’m wrong , but I believe he was saying that every time something like this happens , Americans and especially the media have become numb to it. We’re used to reporting it because it happens so often , but feel helpless to do anything about it , or don’t really want to do anything about it , because so many in congress – the majority of them republicans – have been bought off by the NRA and gun manufacturers – and those of us in the media are afraid we’re going to offend gun owners if we speak out , and that’s exactly what happens. Liberals and president Obama call for stricter gun laws , and the NRA and many of their members feel like it’s a personal attack on them , and I don’t think that’s the case.
Jan : “You’re wrong. Obama is the worst president in American history , and he’s proved it ever since he set foot in the White House. The deficit is way up , spending is way up , unemployment is sky high , five times higher than when George Bush was in office , and the national debt is at an all time high. The economy is in a complete shambles. Plus , he has pledged his undying support of Muslim , and gay jihadists , he’s unlawfully persecuting Christians by supporting gay rights , denying Christians their religious freedom not to serve homosexuals. And now he wants to rewrite the second amendment to suit his socialist agenda , which to take guns away from all of us law abiding patriotic Americans , and throw us all into Wal -Mart stores that have been converted into Fema prison camps. What does he expect us to do? Save more and live better at your friendly Wal-Mart Fema store?”
Rachel : “Wow , Jan. I fail to see what most of that has to do with what I previously said , but anyway , those are just your opinions and they are highly debatable.”
