Students Use Misinformation to Attack NRA

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

By Douglas V. Gibbs

Author, Speaker, Instructor, Radio Host
The Florida Shooting began a new student anti-gun movement (fueled and funded by leftists organizations and billionaires) and to make their point, like their older liberal left Democrat colleagues, the students are using deception to slam their message home.

In the case of David Hogg, while on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” with Brian Stelter, the “shooting survivor-turned-gun-activist” teen made a number of false statements about NRA national spokesperson Dana Loesch in a blatant attempt to drive a wedge between her and the five million members of the organization she represents.

Hogg identified Loesch as the CEO of the NRA, which she isn’t.  After being corrected, Hogg went on to say, “She’s national spokeswoman, and as such, she’s a national propagandist for the NRA. If you listen to her speak, she’s not really saying anything. She’s sounding positive and confident and that’s what she wants the people in the NRA to believe, her 5 million plus members. She wants them to think that she’s on their side but she’s not. She’s actually working with the gun manufacturers because…” he began.

Propagandist?  Is the propagandist calling the person speaking the truth a propagandist?  And . . . she’s somehow working for the gun manufacturers?  It sounds like the truth dot org people slamming tobacco companies.


“So you’re trying to drive a wedge between the NRA leadership and its members?” the host, Brian Stelter, asked.

“Oh, I don’t have to,” Hogg replied. “She’s doing that herself honestly, because she’s showing that she doesn’t care about them. She doesn’t care about police. She — why do you think she’s criticizing these people? It’s because she’s going after them and she wants her base to continue attacking them so she can sell more guns.”

Are gun owners and conservatives anti-police?  Does this moron not realize it’s been the liberal left anti-gun nuts that have been rioting with an anti-police message?

The “sell more guns” angle is what really got me.  Somehow, Dana must be profit driven . . . how could that be if she’s not a gun dealer?

He’s using the same verbal strategy the Democrats use against “big tobacco” and “big oil” and “big pharma” and “big corporations.”  It’s a socialist message.

What I am hearing from Hogg is “anti-capitalism” along with this anti-gun message.  The indoctrination of the school system, and possibly his parents, has done a real job on him.  He can’t possibly see Dana Loesch as someone who supports gun rights.  In Hogg’s mind, Dana is simply a greedy capitalist profiteer.

I’m surprised he didn’t call her a member of the bourgeoisie.

Dana is a spokesperson for the National Rifle Association.  And the NRA is not some huge cartel, or terrorist organization, or greedy corporation.  It’s a gun rights organization.  Period.  And, if you’ve been following Dana Loesch all the way back to her blogging days, she’s always been a staunch supporter of gun rights.  Hogg, like most Democrats, can’t imagine that someone is actually pro-gun.  Their only thinking is that there must be a more nefarious reason.  It must be a hobby of people who burned ants with magnifying glasses when they were kinds, or it’s about profiteering, or all gun owners are potential mass murderers that just haven’t been pushed over the edge.

Once, a Democrat asked me “aside from your lame 2nd Amendment argument, why do you like guns?”  He thought he had me in a “gotcha” moment.  I responded, “I am a firm believer I can provide protection for my home against intruders faster than the police can, I enjoy going out and shooting and working to become a better shot, especially when it comes to skeet.  It’s challenging, enjoyable, and keeps my reflexes sharp.”

I imagine he was expecting something like, “It makes me feel big and bad” or something like that.

The confused “oh” that he squeaked out was almost hilarious.

When it comes to America’s gun culture, Hogg literally has no idea what he’s talking about because all he knows is talking points.  The younger generation doesn’t understand the dangers of having an unarmed society, and I am willing to bet that not a single one of the “anti-gun activists” have ever had the opportunity to fire a gun in their lives.  I am even willing to bet they think the AR-15 is an automatic rifle.  I am willing to bet they don’t know the difference between automatic, semi-automatic, single action, bolt-action, lever-action, or pump-action.  And, more importantly, they do not remember when America stood against tyranny.  They don’t remember the Soviet Union.  They don’t remember the Eastern Bloc.  They don’t remember nuclear drills in school.  And they’ve never heard the true stories of American History.  I am willing to bet they know very little about the truth behind the American Revolution, the U.S. Constitution, and the real history behind the rise and fall of tyrannies.  And hosts, like CNN’s Brian Stelter, who was talking with Hogg in the verbal exchange explained above, wasn’t about to let the kid hear anything other than what needs to be fed to him.

The sad part is Mr. Hogg doesn’t understand he’s simply a tool being used by liberal left statists who seek tyranny, and are willing to do anything, including fund murder (or the politicization of it) to move their agenda forward.

To the hard left Democrats, the ends justifies the means … no matter what.

Loesch responded to Hogg’s idiotic smears, weighing in on Twitchy: “There was zero correction from Brian, who allowed misinformation to stand, further proving my point about how CNN smears innocent, law-abiding gun owners.”

Hence, how CNN earned their Fake News reputation.

Ben Shapiro chimed in, as well.  “Hey @DLoesch, since you own these congressmen and can get them to do things, can you force them to do entitlement reform? Thanks in advance.”

Dana Loesch sarcastically responded, “Trying man. So busy with all my congress-owning powers and all.”

The sad thing is the kids who populate the new gun control youth movement don’t even realize they’re simply dupes for tyranny.
