Television and radio host Dana Loesch is under attack. She’s currently being given the back of the hand by an ideologically driven boys club in the Progressive Media Complex.
Why is so much hatred being directed at Loesch? Undoubtedly it’s because Loesch is launching a media blitz for her stunning new book (and equally stunning cover), Hands Off My Gun – Defeating the Plot to Disarm America.
Readers need only wade a few pages in to the book to understand why the left is unloading both barrels into Dana’s book, and by extension, her reputation. They HAVE to.
Loesch weaves a very personal story of a proud and strong woman animated by her desire protect her family in the face of politically driven death threats.
“I view it as a threat to my and my family’s well-being whenever anyone seeks to erode or take away my Second Amendment civil liberty. The people screeching about disarming someone like me, a mother trying to protect her family—and make no mistake, that’s exactly what they are doing—do not face what I face. They have not been threatened by their fellow citizens as I have been threatened simply for expressing a political thought contrary to their own. These individuals find their security by hiring private security or, if in office, security at taxpayer expense. I don’t have such a luxury.”
Loesch skillfully and brutally exposes how the Progressive left threatens the safety of women (and men) who express a dissenting point of view, while at the same time doing all they can to disarm these same women facing threats against their lives.
It doesn’t take a genius to see that the narrative of a mother with two young children wanting to protect her family in the face of mortal threats from unhinged Progressives is problematic for the Left. It threatens the “War on Women” campaign slogan the Left has painstakingly crafted to scare their Democrat herd into the corral on election day.
Dana further threatens the Progressive anti-gun narrative by calling out hypocrites like Dianne Feinstein:
“In late 1978, San Francisco supervisor Harvey Milk, the first openly gay man elected to public office in California, was assassinated by a fellow supervisor, Dan White.”
“Milk is one of many examples of why people, gay Americans in particular, shouldn’t be disarmed. You could argue instead that Harvey Milk and the mayor might have survived had they been armed with guns of their own. Just like Dianne Feinstein was. Yes, that’s right. Four years after the killing of Milk, she carried a .38 special in her purse.”
A conservative making the argument that homosexuals and women should be able to exercise their constitutional rights is a bridge too far for the Progressive Media Complex.
The first attack comes from Media Matters’ Timothy Johnson, a man.
Timothy completely ignores the premise of the book and so we’ll ignore his moronic implication that Loesch and her multiple editors didn’t vet every quote. They did.
He’s not the first male chauvinist to lecture Dana on why she shouldn’t have the right to protect herself and her young children. Piers Morgan, a man, gets in on the act:
“when I posted a picture of my AR-15 rifle, which was one of the guns I’d shot at the range, Morgan wrote, “The assault rifle used at Aurora Sandy Hook.”
When I replied, “@piersmorgan And everyone safe with all these rifles in the hands of law-abiding citizens!” Morgan replied, “Like Mrs Lanza?”
I was stunned. Mrs. Lanza had failed to properly and safely secure her guns. Her son Adam was a homicidal maniac. What exactly was Piers Morgan saying about me and my family? So I asked:
Me: “@piersmorgan Are you calling me Nancy Lanza?”
Morgan: “No. But she was a law-abiding, gun-loving, AR-15 owning citizen like you”
Me: “@piersmorgan So you’re saying my son is a crazy murderer and I don’t properly store my guns?”
Morgan: “No @DLoesch—I’m saying Adam Lanza and his mother were both ‘law-abiding citizens’ with a house full of guns. Then he shot up a school.”
Me: “So because Adam Lanza’s mom had a certain rifle, anyone else who owns this rifle is involved in shooting up schools, says @piersmorgan.”
This is only a small taste of why the Left hates Dana Loesch and her new book, Hands Off My Gun and why they will do anything they can to stop her story from being told.
Take a stand against the institutional left and their attempt to silence Dana, by making this fantastic book your weekend read.
