Dana Loesch, mother of two, nationally syndicated radio host and host of Dana on The Blaze network, will guest co-host The View today on ABC. Last week, Loesch took the network to the woodshed over a "report" about kids with guns. In the "report," touted by veteran anchor Diane Sawyer as "real talk," reporters put real guns in places like kids' backpacks, play toys and near candy in order to prove that if you leave guns out, kids will play with them.
Sawyer appeared on The View last week to tout her special report but as soon as the news about Loesch co-hosting tomorrow's show spread,the
tolerant far-left anti-gun group Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America began to attack. Moms Demand Action regularly and ironically decries bullying, partners with Mayors Against Illegal Guns and is funded by billionaire and former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
To kick off the outrage, Moms Demand Action Founder Shannon Watts tweeted about her disappointed in the ladies of The View for having Loesch on the show.
Watts continued her rant by falsely accusing Loesch of being paid by the National Rifle Association and the ammunition magazine manufacturing company Magpul.
Then, the outrage continued on Facebook, complete with death threats (including a beheading threat!) and obscene language.
For the record, Loesch has repeatedly invited Watts to come on her Blaze program to debate gun control. Watts has refused. Apparently, Ms. Watts only has enough courage to take on Loesch when she's sitting comfortably behind her keyboard.
