“The reaction to this is insane!”
Liberals went 100 percent, genuine, Grade-A off the rails in reaction to an ad released by the National Rifle Association featuring TheBlaze host and conservative talk radio personality Dana Loesch.
The reaction was also delayed — it came nearly three months after the NRA published the spot. Ironically, Congressional Republicans were targeted after the ad’s release. But, that doesn’t matter to the hysterical Left.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson observed that “Mother Jones” ran a story on the ad under the headline, “NRA Declares War on Half of America,” and that CNN’s Sally Kohn thought it astounding that it would call using the “clenched fist of truth” in answer to the left’s “violence of lies.”
In ad FOR THE NRA, @DLoesch accuses left of “violence of lies” & calls for fighting back with “clenched fist of truth.” Just wow.

Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson thought it smacked of racism.
This NRA ad is an open call to violence to protect white supremacy. If I made a video like this, I’d be in jail. pic.twitter.com/LD65yMUMVn

“The reaction to this is insane!” Loesch told Carlson Thursday. “I’m talking over video clips that show actual leftist violence, rioting, property damage, arson, physical assault, and apparently me condemning violence is what’s inciting and dividing America.”
“The tape is a bunch of rich white kids setting fire to stuff” Carlson said and laughed. “You’re defending white supremacy for attacking rich white kids burning stuff?” he asked and laughed again, and called the white supremacy accusations “insane.”
“It’s the goofiest thing ever,” Loesch agreed. She then displayed the resistance movement’s clenched fist loge that her “clenched fist of truth” reference was in direct response to.
“When you show the left… when you hold up a mirror and show them their reflection, they freak out,” she said.
The twi then turned their attention to another response — this one from U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy, who tweeted:
I think the @NRA is telling people to shoot us.

Loesch called the Connecticut Democrat’s tweet “incredibly reckless and irresponsible,” she said. “First of all, it’s a lie,” adding that “Sen. Murphy needs to rethink his word choice here.”
Loesch said that a Maryland lawmaker even claimed that the NRA ad exploited the shooting in Alexandria, Virginia that left five injured during a Republican baseball practice — even though it came out April 7, two months before the shooting.

The Brady Campaign, a gun control activist group, also over-reacted to the ad. And it did so nearly three months after it was released just live everyone else.

They didn’t get the reaction they were looking for.
They care about nothing but disarming Americans, for reasons we can only imagine. They can’t claim they don’t know better.

Kohn got her own “violence of lies” thrown right back in her face.
why is it that leftists abhor the truth??? Maybe this is the cause of the “violence of lies”. pic.twitter.com/qXllBE53dJ

And when the Lt. Gov of California expressed his supposed grave concern over the ad, he heard from conservatives too:
Californians must never have a Governor who cowers in fear at a video calling out violence. Never. https://t.co/juWmBfpnhl

Loesch posted a video to her Twitter account Wednesday that may explain some of the delayed reaction to the NRA ad. Although it had been up for months, The NRA had only recently posted it to its new Facebook page.
On my NRA ad. https://t.co/2iZnNrBWGP

The only real violence seems to come from the left. Loesch told Carlson that in the last few days she’d received seath threats on account of the ad.
