Conservative talk radio host and NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch recently conveyed a bold, outspoken, and long overdue message to the New York Times. According to reports from The Hill, Loesch made the following statements in her NRA ad:
Much to the displeasure of many liberal pundits, the NRA ad featuring Loesch harshly condemned fake, misleading news coverage:
“We’ve had it with your constant protection of your Democrat overlords, your refusal to acknowledge any truth that upsets the fragile construct that you believe is real life. And we’ve had it with your pretentious, tone-deaf assertion that you are in any way truth or fact-based journalism. 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.”
Members of the NRA have been staunch advocates for second amendment rights and truth since their inception. The NRA’s latest ad is one of many where they were forced to call out prominent liberals and leftist groups for their deception and hypocrisy.
A recent example occurred a few weeks prior when Loesch spoke out against the Women’s March, a movement which claims to champion for women, but in reality only cares for leftist, liberal women. One of the Women’s March leaders, Linda Sarsour, came under fire for her 2011 comments where she declared her sick desires to “take away the vaginas” of women who spoke out against female genital mutilation, an offshoot of Sharia Law, which Sarsour has endorsed on multiple occasions. The NRA then condemned the phony, two-faced double standards of the Women’s March, much to the mainstream media’s chagrin.
Democrats’ response to the NRA’s latest censure of fake news was to engage in even more dishonest press, by alleging that Loesch claimed the NRA would “fist” the New York Times, when in reality, she used the word, “fisk,” which means “to refute or criticize.” Even Yashar Ali, contributor for The Huffington Post, a notoriously liberal outlet, was forced to admit the erroneous reports pertaining to Loesch’s ad.
The past few months have shown the mainstream media’s considerable dislike for being called out on their fake news. However, the American people have the right to speak out against phony coverage and will continue to do so. If news outlets have an issue with Loesch’s statements in the NRA ad, they should halt the employment of misinformation as a tool to further their own liberal agenda. Loesch’s ad was not threatening or inappropriate in any manner whatsoever. She articulated her positions clearly and delivered a resolute message to the New York Times: “We’ve had it.”
