Women’s March Angry Over New Ad, Set To Protest NRA
Women’s March organizers announced on Independence Day that they will protest against the National Rifle Association (NRA) in response to its videos advocating for truth, freedom and lawful restraint.
The July 14 protest in Fairfax, Va. comes after the NRA released an ad featuring Dana Loesch stating that the only way to oppose the violent left is to fight back with the “clenched fist of truth.”
Mainstream media, as well as Women’s March Inc., immediately accused the ad of promoting violence and white supremacy, despite Loesch not advocating for either ideology in the ad.
The NRA displays “complete disregard for the lives of black and brown people in America” and calls for the “direct endorsement of violence against these citizens … [the NRA] does not value the legal rights nor the human rights of any of us,” Tamika Mallory, Co-President of Women’s March Inc., said in her open letter to the NRA.
The WomensMarch.com site demands that the NRA “immediately remove the recent irresponsible and dangerous propaganda videos narrated by conservative talk radio host Dana Loesch” and “issue an apology to the American people for the video … as it suggests armed violence against communities of color.” Mallory threatened that, if the NRA did not acquiesce to these requests, Women’s March Inc. would call for a “mass mobilization” of protest.
The NRA responded to Mallory’s letter July 1 with a video featuring talk-show host Grant Stinchfield defending the NRA’s ad.
Stinchfield notes in the video that, while Trump rallies have been peaceful, college campuses taken over by violent leftists have gone up in flames. He defends Loesch’s statement that the only way we save this country is to “fight violence of lies with the clenched fist of truth,” and refuses to “apologize for chaos creators.”
According to its Facebook event, Women’s March Inc. will host a mass demonstration similar to the Women’s March on Washington that protested the inauguration of President Donald Trump in January.
