If you spent the weekend camping out in the remote crisp desert or hiking in the highlands of a forested winter wonderland, you were lucky enough not to see that Dana Loesch was trending all over social media. The slick spokesmodel of the NRA has been making the rounds of news shows, vehemently earning all that cold hard cash promised to her after she made a deal with the devil.
Does this sound like an accusation that Loesch is in it for the money just like the NRA is in it for the money as it is a prop for firearm manufacturers? While appearing on MSNBC’s AM Joy, Kurt Bardella had this to say about his former Breitbart co-worker, “This is someone who clearly frankly has no soul, but is a paid mercenary who is happy to keep cashing a check from the NRA to spread ridiculousness.”
Bardella—a former conservative who has recently joined forces with democrats—and host Joy Reid had been discussing Loesch’s speech at the 2018 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) last Thursday.
“Many in legacy media love mass shootings. You guys love it,” the shameless Loesch claimed. “Now I’m not saying that you love the tragedy. But I am saying that you love the ratings. Crying white mothers are ratings gold to you and many in the legacy media in the back (of the room).”
The day before, Loesch appeared at CNN’s town hall in Florida along with survivors of the deadly shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. To Emma González’s question about limiting availability of semi-automatic weapons and bump stocks, she poured on the syrupy sympathy to deflect blame from the NRA.
“[The NRA has been] for over 20 years, and I have been screaming about this, which is why I’m here. Because I have kids, and I’m not just fighting for my kids, I’m fighting for you, I’m fighting for you [pointing at students], I’m fighting for all of you.”
The rest of her malarkey was jeered by those in attendance. The following day at CPAC, she claimed, “I had to have a security detail to get out. I wouldn’t have been able to exit that if I did not have a private security detail. There were people rushing the stage and screaming, ‘Burn her!’ And I came there to talk solutions.”
Her version of the circumstances has been debunked, as Bardella has also discredited her phony intention.
“What disturbs me the most,” said Bardella, “is when Dana left that conference, she went back to her social circle and she got high-fives from everybody. They’re giving her ‘You did a great job. Way to go.’ Donald Trump probably loved it. He’s probably thinking, ‘I should hire that girl at some point.’ That’s the biggest toxicity going on, that they’re just talking to one another and fueling this.”
