They won’t be silenced, but want to silence the NRA and Loesch.
Women’s March group is at it again. This time they’ve decided to protest against the NRA, partially over an ad that features radio host Dana Loesch.
Organizers of the group, which include Sharia-loving Linda Sarsour, claim the ad called “for armed conflict against our communities” and insulted people of color. Of course it didn’t. The ad actually highlighted the rising violence the left has used lately. But that didn’t stop the left from engaging in a smear campaign against Loesch, which Professor Jacobson described in this post.
As the professor points out, “there isn’t a single thing in it that calls for violence.” Loesch just wants us “to confront Democrat and ‘Resistance’ violence with the truth.”
Tamika Mallory, founder of Women’s March, asked NRA executive vice president and chief executive Wayne LaPierre to remove the ad and apologize for it. NRA responded with another video titled We Don’t Apologize for the Truth.
So now Women’s March, along with Black Lives Matter, decided to engage in a protest from the NRA to the DOJ today. They want to show that they “will not be intimidated from exercising their First Amendment rights.”

Last night, Loesch appeared on Tucker Carlson and she noted the irony of that statement. They won’t be silenced, but yet they want to silence Loesch and the NRA.
Loesch also reminds viewers that groups like Women’s March are not inclusive:
She explained that they don’t want pro-life women or women who want to be empowered to use the Second Amendment.
“Somehow leftism or progressivism has the patent on being a female, it has the patent on being gay or a lesbian, it has the patent on being black or being a Muslim,” Loesch said. “And it doesn’t. And that’s what I find discriminatory.”
And not wanting females “who want to be empowered to use the Second Amendment” excludes a large chunk of females in the country. From Fox News:
According to an Investor’s Business Daily/TIPP poll from early last year, 49 percent of married women say that they or someone in their home owns a gun. A new PEW survey shows that 40 percent of women generally live in a home with a gun, and that almost a quarter of women personally own a gun. But even for those women who don’t own a gun, 45 percent say that they could see themselves as owning one at some point.
Among female gun owners, 71 percent told PEW that they own a gun for protection, 40 percent say that all or most of their friends own guns, and 29 percent say they keep a loaded gun that is always easily accessible.
A 2014 PEW poll found that women view gun ownership positively. By a 51 to 43 percent margin they said that gun ownership is more likely to protect people from being crime victims than it is to put people’s safety at risk. Women were more supportive of gun control than men were (54 percent for women and 37 percent for men), but women are also much more likely than men to cite violence in television and movies as contributing at least a fair amount to gun violence (64 percent vs 46 percent). They were also far more likely to cite violence in video games as a contributing factor (70 percent vs 49 percent).
People have started to gather outside of the NRA headquarters. All hundreds of them?
