Enough With The Fake Outrage Over The NRA Dana Loesch Video

posted on June 30, 2017

Earlier this month, the NRA posted a Freedom’s Safest Place video from April on its Facebook page. The ad features NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch calling out the left for their aggressive rhetoric that has led to protests, hate speech and violence. “The only way we stop this,” she says, “is to fight this violence of lies with the clenched fist of truth.”                                                                          

Condemning violence and fighting lies with truth—sounds like a pretty commonsense message, doesn’t it? Not to the violent left, who instantly attacked Loesch with such vitriol that it only proved her point further. Many incorrectly cited her “clenched fist” line as proof that she was inciting violence herself—although as Loesch herself noted on Twitter, a clenched fist is the symbol of the left’s Resist movement.

Social media shamers called her everything from racist and repulsive to mentally ill and a terrorist. Organizers from the Women’s March wrote a letter calling for removal of the “dangerous propaganda” videos. A petition began circulating to remove the video. Journalist Jeff Sharlet even said the video—which calls for nothing more than a truth campaign—is “a whisper shy of a call for a full civil war.”

Perhaps her ad hit the left a little too close to home? Loesch posted a video response on her social accounts, and she also joined NRATV’s Grant Stinchfield to discuss their fake outrage and her thoughts on the video.
