Dana Loesch's "Controversial" NRA Ad


#1

Libs & Progs have been making all kinds of lurid claims that Dana Loesch’s recent NRA ad promotes violence. Others have defended her, saying the claims have no basis in what she said in the ad. While I’m inclined to believe the defenses, I knew the best way to see who is speaking the truth is to … (GASP!) … watch the video. It’s just a minute long. I transcribed it, below. The punctuation and paragraphing is mine; I’ve not seen the script. Please post corrections if I missed or misunderstood anything.

They use their media to assassinate real news. They use their schools to teach children that their President is another Hitler. They use their movie stars and singers and comedy shows and award shows to repeat their narrative over and over again.

And then they use their ex-President to endorse The Resistance, all to make them march, make them protest make them scream “Racism” and “Sexism” and “Xenophobia” and “Homophobia”, to smash windows, burn cars, shut down Interstates and airports, bully and terrorize the law-abiding until the only option left is for the police to do their jobs and stop the madness. And when that happens, they’ll use it as an excuse for their outrage.

The only way we stop this, the only way we save our country and our freedom is to fight this violence of lies with the clenched fist of truth.

I’m the National Rifle Association of America, and I’m freedom’s safest place.

There’s only one sentence in which Dana Loesch advocated anything:

The only way we stop this, the only way we save our country and our freedom is to fight this violence of lies with the clenched fist of truth.

The sentence is carefully crafted to make even literalizing her obvious metaphor and pretzellating her obvious meaning into advocacy of literal violence difficult. The Libs’ and Progs’ claims are lies and falsehoods, not that truth has much significance in current Lib/Prog politics.

Great ad, this is the kind of direct approach that the Left cannot refute so they will try to censor it.

Every Conservative needs to communicate like this ad, the jury is in on the “say things softly so the Left won’t get outraged” strategy and it is a profound failure.

Every American knows what she just said is truth and everyone knows what she was advocating, responding to the Lefts narrative is just giving the Left credibility that their accusations cannot provide.

Let the Left scream, those who hear them scream will find the ad and learn that this is just another Red Herring tossed out by fake news propagandists.

We don’t need to “explain” that which is already written brilliantly, we need to mock those who try to claim we said something else as desperate liars who are doomed by the truth.

This is one of the reasons I took the 10 or 15 minutes to transcribe the add. I have Lib/Prog FB friends, and I’m ready for one of them to pass on some pundit’s outrage-post without first fact-checking what Dana Loesch actually said.

If they are the type to accept the criticism without looking at the ad for themselves a transcript won’t enlighten them, mocking them as sheep who are so lazy they let others do their thinking and opinion forming for them might shame them enough to wake up though :slight_smile:

Liberals always play the “dumb sheep” card on Conservatives that they can’t argue with, but the truth is that they are the dumb sheep and that should be proved at every opportunity in my opinion.

There are no facts in the world of liberalism its more like “soup de jour”. Providing facts to a liberal is on par with wearing a cross and garlic around your neck to a vampire…
