1. Let's be clear here.
The NRA's @DLoesch has absolutely called for journalists to be beaten to death.
She denies it, but the record is clear.
It's just that she's so flippant with such violent threats that she has perhaps lost touch with what she has said. pic.twitter.com/QrEWRXLs0h

Someone saying “journalists do not deserve to be curb-stomped” is like someone saying “polkadotted hats for all the rats who ate our cats.” It is an utterly nonsensical, gibberish statement.
The sky is blue.
Water is wet.
And journalists deserve to be curb-stomped.
Princess Dana has never lied.
National Rifle Association spokeswoman Dana Loesch said journalists need to be “curb stomped”, in footage that has resurfaced after the Maryland newspaper shooting.
A gunman opened fire at Capital Gazette in Annapolis on Thursday – killing five people and injuring others in what police have branded a “targeted attack”.
Staff at the local paper said the attacker, armed with a shotgun and smoke grenades, shot through a glass door into the newsroom in what is being deemed one of the deadliest attacks on a US media publication in history.
Did Princess Dana do the shooting?
Yesterday folks played musical chairs with blame, never once settling on the murderer who stalked a woman and when a paper covered his crime, targeted them. Today they’ve decided to blame me. To them, everyone else incites, they don’t.

Then what the fuck is the relevance of connecting these two things?
And remarks Ms Loesch – a conservative political activist and TV host – made advocating violence against journalists in 2016 quickly resurfaced in the wake of the killings at the Capital Gazette offices in Annapolis.
Saying that someone deserves something is not encouraging anyone to take action to give it to them, as the word “advocating” implies.
Shaun King, a civil rights activist and writer, shared an old clip of Ms Loesch berating journalists on Twitter in the wake of the Maryland tragedy.
Of course he did.
Ms Loesch, who is a spokesperson for the largest gun lobbying group in the US, said: “I’m happy frankly to see them curb-stomped. I mean let’s be real about it.”
“These people are just the worst thing that could ever possibly happen to the American political system right now with the way that they cover so many things. Nobody gets a fair shake on policy, no one gets a fair shake where it concerns immigration. They conflate illegal and legal immigration.
“They conflate a number of things – particularly the coverage on gun control. I have so many things that I hate about mainstream media, there is no way we are going to fit it in the allotted time today. They are the rat bastards of the earth. They are the boil on the backside of American politics.”
Like I say.
The NRA released a video containing a threatening message to journalists warning them “your time is running out” in March. In a video posted on Twitter by NRATV, Ms Loesch tells “every lying member of the media” that they have “had enough”.
Set to a backing track of ominous-sounding guitar music, she appears on screen dressed in black with an hourglass by her side.
“We have had enough of the lies, the sanctimony, the arrogance, the hatred, the pettiness, the fake news. We are done with your agenda to undermine voters’ will and individual liberty in America.”
“So to every lying member of the media, to every Hollywood phoney, to the role model athletes who use their free speech to alter and undermine what our flag represents.
“To the politicians who would rather watch America burn than lose one ounce of their own personal power, to the late night posts that think their opinion is the only opinions that matter.
“To the Joy-Ann Reids, the Morning Joes, the Mikas. To those who stain honest reporting with partisanship. To those who bring bias and propaganda to CNN, The Washington Post and The New York Times… your time is running out. The clock starts now.”
These statements are all perfectly legal in These United States.
And they represent the sentiment of this country.
The same sentiment that all peoples develop after having spent a time with European-Style Socialists controlling their country.
And guess what, kikes?
Your outrage machine is broken.
Maybe check the carburetor?
