For the last few months, The Blaze’s Dana Loesch and gun-grabbing Moms Demand Action founder Shannon Watts have been in a bit of a feud. Back in February, when it was announced that Loesch would be a guest host on The View, Watts was not at all happy.
As The Blaze’s Jason Howerton reported at the time:
In addition to re-tweeting messaging calling Loesch a “pro-gun extremist,” “hate monger,” and “gun bully,” Watts also repeatedly messaged the official Twitter account of “The View” to express her disappointment in the show for giving someone a platform who she happens to disagree with.
Watts also claimed that Loesch is a paid “shill” of firearms manufacturer Magpul. The only problem with the claim is that it’s not true.
How is that a problem? Such an assertion doesn’t need to be true. It just needs to be easy for leftists to memorize.
Loesch and Watts were both in Indianapolis this weekend; Loesch to attend the NRA convention, and Watts to lament its existence. Loesch tried to give Watts an opportunity to follow up on her false claims. Watts didn’t like that either.
Project your own behavior onto the person you committed it against, clam up, and then leave the scene surrounded by guys with, um… guns. Yep, that’s a lefty.
The group needs to be renamed. How about Moms Demand Action Under the Protection of the Same Firearms They Don’t Think You Should Have? I guess that’s kind of a mouthful. Or maybe… Moms Demand to Lie About Guns and Their Owners?
Mmmmmyeah, I’ll keep workin’ on it.
