Dana Loesch rose to conservative icon status one battle at a time. Her weapon of choice: Twitter.
An expert in social media, the animated 35-year-old Texan was tapped by Americans for Prosperity this weekend to teach a group of eager activists how to use social media to change hearts and minds.
We can win political arguments “six ways to Sunday,” but it doesn’t matter if we can’t win hearts and minds, Loesch said Saturday at Americans for Prosperity’s annual Defending the American Dream summit in Dallas.
It’s easy to rip people apart on social media, Loesch admitted, calling it a big temptation for her before she had her “come to Jesus moment.” Her advice now: Demonstrate grace.
The outspoken scrapper knows her advice is easier said than done, and she showed off a forearm tattoo as evidence that she has to continually remind herself to go easy on the ignorant. “Ephesians 6:12-13” is what is actually inked. Here is the English Standard Version:
12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.
The award-winning, nationally syndicated daily radio show host and former editor for Breitbart’s Big Journalism recently joined TheBlaze staff, but she continues to build her reputation through spirited debates on Twitter with celebrities like talk show host Montel Williams and actor Jim Carrey.
Loesch, a former liberal, began gathering conservative street cred years ago as a political pundit on Fox News, CNN, CBS, ABC and HBO, among others. Her unique blend of toughness and humor gained her admiration from many of her peers.
The mother of two isn’t afraid to comment on hot-button issues in between her active radio and TV schedule. In October, she’ll officially add “author” to her resume, with the release of her first published book, “Hands Off My Gun: Defeating the Plot to Disarm America.”
The book’s cover shows sexy Loesch with a firearm, and it’s already created a buzz along with plenty of hate mail.
