Liberals are piping hot over a new ad from the NRA that tells the truth about the fringe left and their increasingly-violent tactics. Not a month after a deranged liberal stalked out to a ballfield in Alexandria, VA to kill Republicans, the liberal media is accusing the NRA of inciting a violent atmosphere among Trump supporters. It’s the most insidious pot-kettle turnaround we’ve seen in a long time, and it shows you just how desperately the left wants to pretend that what’s happening in their progressive movement isn’t actually happening.
In the video, which is interspersed with scenes from violent, left-wing protests from the past year, conservative radio host Dana Loesch lays out the facts.
“They use their media to assassinate real news. They use their schools to teach children that their president is another Hitler. And then they use their ex-president to endorse the resistance,” Loesch says. “All to make them march, make them protest, make them scream racism and sexism and xenophobia, 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.”
Left-wing critics are now accusing the NRA of essentially using the ad as a “call to action” by telling supporters to arm themselves so they can go hunt down and kill liberal protesters. Now, we won’t spend a lot of time wondering what kind of sick mind you have to have to read that kind of message into the video, because that would be to give the left the credit of actually believing what they say. They don’t. They are simply using any excuse, trick, and misdirection in the book to get Americans to forget that there has only been one major act of political violence in recent months, and it was committed by a hardcore Bernie Sanders supporter and perpetrated on Republican congressmen.
In an interview with Tucker Carlson on Thursday night, Loesch said you had to be willfully blind to treat the NRA ad as anything other than a condemnation of violence.
“I’m talking over video clips that show actual leftist violence,” Loesch said. “Rioting, property damage, arson, physical assault, and apparently me condemning violence is what’s inciting and dividing America.”
Loesch took exception to a tweet by Connecticut Democrat Chris Murphy, who said, “I think the NRA is telling people to shoot us.”
“There was nowhere in this video where I called for anyone to move toward violence, to silence anyone, or where I called for anyone to even pick up a firearm and enact violence,” she said. “We just had a couple weeks ago, due to some of this rhetoric like we see from Sen. Murphy, had a crazy leftist lunatic go out and open fire on a bunch of Republicans after he double-checked to make sure they were Republican. This has to stop, and I’m not going to stop condemning violence, and it’s a shame that other people on the left, Tucker, won’t do the same.”
To condemn it, they would actually have to admit that it’s happening. Guess they’re not ready to do that yet.
