Sexist Liberal Men Ridicule Dana Loesch Over Hairstyle

What is it about our society that we focus more on how a woman is dressed, her size, or how she wore her hair than on what she has to say?

Dana Loesch was ridiculed on Twitter by a bunch of leftist men who thought her top knot was stupid. Loesch normally wears her hair down but went for an updo on her new NRA TV show, Relentless, and instead of focusing on what she was actually saying, these sexist pigs decided to insult her new do.

This is a common hair style for women, and an easy fix for a bad hair day. Not sure why wearing her hair in a bun was so triggering for these men.

Dana’s response was to shake it off and say she’d probably wear it up again today, too.

Advertisers bend to the will of a high school student

Advertisers are caving and bending to the will of a high school student.

Yesterday, conservative radio and Fox News host, Laura Ingraham, tweeted out a message about Parkland school shooting survivor David Hogg being rejected from college.

That’s what she tweeted. Nothing less, nothing more.

Was it the smartest thing to do? Probably not. But it’s not awful.

Well, Mr. Hogg, liberal hero of the moment, was incredibly offended. Not only demanding an apology from Ingraham, but he started going after her advertisers.

And you know what, those companies began caving, giving into the demands of a high school student.

But the story doesn’t stop there. Ingraham apologized for her “insensitive” tweet. However, that turned out not to be enough for Hogg, he is now demanding an apology from an entire network.

Yes, the same kid that said Sen. Marco Rubio had blood on his hands, that also said radio host Dana Loesch was a propagandist for the NRA and calling her disgusting, wants an apology from entire network.

I understand he’s been through a horrible, horrible thing. But this kid is taking his 15 minutes a little far. You can’t accuse a sitting senator of being directly responsible for the deaths of 17 people and then claim the moral high ground, demanding an apology.

Seriously, is  where we are in 2018? If so, it’s a sad, sad place.

Broward Co. Sheriff Israel doesn’t seem to understand ‘leadership’

The debate following the deadly Florida school shooting rages on, which is to be expected any time that many people senselessly lose their lives. And as is always the case following a tragedy such as this, the media and others begin screaming about increased gun control measures.

In the days following the shooting, the NRA and its spokeswoman, Dana Loesch, have received a ton of criticism, essentially blaming them for the shooting of the 17 people in that Florida school.  Businesses have also begun ending discounts for members of the NRA. Listen, that’s perfectly acceptable. Private businesses have the right to do whatever they please. But let’s remember, we also have the right to patronize other businesses, as well.

First, the FBI admitted that they ignored a Jan. 5th tip about Nikolas Cruz and they did absolutely nothing about the situation.

However, the most interesting developments since the shooting have to be the failures on the part of the Broward County Sheriff’s Department.

First, we learned there were repeated calls made about Nikolas Cruz and his odd and disturbing behavior. What happened? Nothing. Then we heard about at least one and as many as possibly four Broward County deputies failed to enter the school when the shooting was taking place.

But, for whatever reason, the Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel seems not to be able to grasp the basic concept of the word leadership.

In the above clip, Sheriff Israel mentions that he is not ultimately responsible for an individual’s actions. That he had done everything possible to prepare that so and so was ready for the fight, but if they choose not to go in, well hey, that ain’t my fault.

No sir, leadership is standing up and taking responsibility for the successes or failures of an organization. Leadership is stepping up and admitting failures, whether they be yours or not. Leadership isn’t using the NRA as a scapegoat for your failures. It’s being man or woman enough to admit when your organization failed and accepting the consequences whatever they may be.

If a company falters, loses stockholders’ money, it’s the CEO who ultimately pays the price, usually with his or her job. If the country isn’t performing at a level that the electorate believes it should be, a change in leadership in the White House is made.

Point is sir, taking responsibility for the actions of those beneath you is what leadership is all about. The voters elected you to do a job, to carry out those duties and it appears that you failed them miserably. To act as if you have absolutely no responsibility in this ugly, devastating outcome is incredibly absurd and appalling.

Why you continue to refuse say that you’ve provided excellent leadership and refuses to resign is baffling.

What happened in Florida that day was horrible, ugly and awful. There is still plenty of healing and pain to come in the coming days.

There are certainly legislative solutions that could and should happen. People must learn from their mistakes and failures in this case in order to hope this doesn’t happen again in the future.

However, responsibility for those failures and mistakes must be taken and a big part of that healing process is for Broward County Sheriff Israel to step down.

CNN Town Hall Was An Emotion Fueled Attack on the GOP and the NRA

Last night CNN held a town hall with the students, parents and teachers from Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Jake Tapper served as moderator and was joined by Florida Senators Marco Rubio, Bill Nelson, Rep. Ted Deutch, NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch and Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel.

It could have been an important and much needed conversation, with both sides offering suggestions and discussing practical solutions. Instead, it turned into an angry, emotionally charged attack on the GOP, NRA and the Second Amendment.

One student tried to back Marco Rubio into a corner by asking him to publicly declare that he would not accept any more money from the NRA.

When trying to talk with the father of a student who died in the attack, he was repeatedly booed by the crowd when discussing fixing laws we already have instead of full on banning semi-automatic weapons.

Dana Loesch, a spokesperson for the NRA and conservative talk show host, was met with even more distain from the crowd. When Emma Gonzalez asked her question, she precluded it with a statement saying ” Dana Loesch, I want you to know that we will support your two children in the way that we will not – – you will not.” She then went on to ask Loesch about making it harder to obtain semi-automatic weapons and modifications such as bump stocks.

Amid the booing, people in the crowd also started yelling “murderer” and “burn her” at Loesch while she was responding to questions.

Sheriff Israel even accused her of not standing up for the students because she wouldn’t say the NRA wanted less weapons but then later on said “America, there’s one person responsible for this act. That’s the detestable violent killer. He is responsible for this act. No other — nobody else but him.”

Muskets came up. A well regulated militia came up. The time era the Second Amendment was written in came up. Each time Loesch tried to present facts and talk to the crowd about the language and how it was written, she got booed. If they’d had rotten tomatoes, it’s probable people wouldn’t have been throwing them at her. And in an interview with a student following the town hall, they were still livid with the NRA, saying they offer no solutions to change.

This went on for two hours and while these students and parents have every right to be emotional and express that outrage, this was supposed to be a forum for discussion and instead it turned into a mob rule rally for a full repeal of the Second Amendment.
Major props to Marco Rubio and Dana Loesch for going into that lion’s den in the first place. It was hostile, emotional and downright infuriating that these two people, who are trying to work with the other side were treated so disrespectfully. And shame on CNN for exploiting the victims of this tragedy to push an obvious gun control agenda and score ratings, just one week after the school shooting.

Glamour’s 2017 Women of the Year Awards Excludes Conservative Women

Glamour magazine recently held their “Women of the Year” awards, yet conveniently left out conservative women. You would think there would be at least ONE worthy of one of a nomination? According to their web site, the awards to go game changers, rule breakers and trailblazers.

For 27 years, Glamour’s Women of the Year Awards has honored game changers, rule breakers, and trailblazers. This year proved to be one of our biggest ever. This year’s Women of the Year honorees cover a lot of bases—an astronaut, a supermodel, a refugee, an Oscar winner—but they’re all using their platforms to improve the lives of women everywhere.

I saw plenty of conservative women in 2017 who fit the bill. Instead, people like Maxine Waters, Samantha Bee, Laverne Cox, the Women’s March organizers were chosen.

So since Glamour failed to recognize the rock stars in the conservative movement, I’ve decided to put together a few outstanding conservative women myself who deserve recognition.

Hope Hicks & Sarah Huckabee Sanders

Hicks, communications director for Donald Trump and Sanders, White House Press Secretary make the first female led White House Communications team in history. Feminists should be celebrating! Yet no one seems to be acknowledging their accomplishments.


Nikki Haley
Nikki Haley
Current ambassador to the U.N., Nikki Haley has taken tough stances on Russia and Iran and been a strong supporter of Israel. Could she be our first female president?

 
Dana Loesch
dana-loesch-volquartsen
NRA Spokesperson and host of “The Dana Show”, Dana Loesch has been one of the Second Amendment’s most vocal supporters. Dana takes a lot of heat from the left and often gets rape and death threats from the anti-gun crowd.

 
Amanda Carpenter
H0ve0F7A

Former senior communications advisor and speechwriter for Senator Ted Cruz, Amanda Carpenter now works for CNN as a political commentator. Carpenter actually used to write for Glamour’s political blog, so you’d think they’d take the time to honor her! She’s often outspoken and critical of President Trump but makes a lot of great points in her writing and commentary.

Elly Maye
ELL2

Conservative/Libertarian YouTube blogger Elly Maye is one of the rising conservative millennial stars. Her funny videos tend to go viral with the Republican crowd and if you haven’t watched one, start with “Top 10 Reason’s Why I’m Not a Democrat.”

And those are JUST a few of the many conservative women Glamour could have chosen to recognize, but didn’t. They’re all rising stars and blazing new paths and deserve some recognition for their contributions to the conservative cause.

Thank you, ladies, for all that you do to show that yes, there ARE young, female conservatives out there that we can relate to.

Dana Loesch Gets Apology from Yashar Ali; Called “Terrorist” by Kathleen Rice

Dana Loesch has been brutally attacked the last couple weeks by journalists (and now even a congresswoman) on the left who claim she uses the word “fist” instead of “fisk” in this NRA ad.

Fisk, in case you didn’t know, basically means to fact check and in the ad, Loesch calls for fact-checking of the NY Times. The NRA video series is called “Clenched Fist of Truth.” As you can imagine, things got nasty on Twitter toward Loesch AND liberals claimed she was inciting violence against the newspaper.

However, Yashar Ali of New York Magazine, Huff Post and Mother Jones decided things had gone a bit too far and issued this apology to Loesch yesterday.

Dana graciously accepted his apology.

But before the dust settled on the previous attack from Ali, she was then dealt ANOTHER blow from New York Congresswoman, Kathleen Rice, who decided to call Dana and ALL members of the NRA domestic security threats under the Trump administration.

Conservative women like Loesch are increasingly being attacked by members of the left, especially those who strongly support the Second Amendment. Calling Dana and ALL members of the NRA terrorists is completely outrageous and infuriating.

Many NRA members are former and current members of our military. More importantly, they are LEGAL gun owners who follow their state regulations for buying and carrying firearms.

Rice should apologize to Dana and the millions of NRA (and non-NRA) gun owners she just insulted. However, according to a statement from her spokesperson,  it doesn’t look like that will be happening anytime soon.

Women’s March to Protest NRA

Last week, conservative talk show host Dana Loesch caused quite a stir with her new NRA ad.

Liberals went nuts, including Women’s March organizer Tamika Mallory, who posted an open letter to the NRA on her Twitter and Facebook pages. In her letter, Mallory calls Loesch’s new NRA ad “irresponsible and dangerous propaganda.”

When Mallory and the Women’s March organizers didn’t get their wish for the NRA ad to be removed, they decided to stage a protest against the organization. Scheduled for July 14th – 15th the protest will start in front of NRA headquarters in Fairfax, VA then continue on an 18 mile march to the headquarters of the Department of Justice. They will protest there on the 15th.

Just like all the marches before, this Women’s March alienates a large part of their intended supporter base. According to a 2017 Pew study, 1 in 5 women own a gun and 70% of women who own a firearm say gun ownership is an essential part of their personal freedom.

And in a 2013 New York Times article, the newspaper found “women’s participation in shooting sports has surged over the last decade, increasing by 51.5 percent for target shooting from 2001 to 2011, to just over 5 million women, and by 41.8 percent for hunting, according to the National Sporting Goods Association.”

Many women (including myself) own a firearm for personal protection and wholeheartedly support our Second Amendment rights. While I was never a fan of the organization to begin with due to their pro-abortion stance, their continued assault on conservative values keeps driving me – and many other women – even further away.

According to their mission statement, the Women’s March aims “to harness the political power of diverse women and their communities to create transformative social change.” That’s pretty laughable when they fail to include or even recognize the diverse pro-life, pro-gun, pro-capitalism conservative women on the right.

This woman still won’t be marching anytime soon.
