Conservative pundit Dana Loesch starred in a recent NRA ad in which she laid out the liberal tactic of using intimidation and shouts of homophobia, racism and xenophobia to get their way - in addition to those violent protests. In the one-minute clip, she showed real instances of protest violence that has been authored by opponents of President Trump.
Nevertheless, liberal campaigns fumed that she dare call them out.
Liberal MSNBC anchor Sally Kohn was especially shocked. In particular, she took issue with Loesch's directive for her fellow conservatives to, "fight this violence of lies with the clenched fist of truth." That phrasing, Kohn argued, proved that Loesch was inciting violence.
In ad FOR THE NRA, @DLoesch accuses left of "violence of lies" & calls for fighting back with "clenched fist of truth." Just wow.— Sally Kohn (@sallykohn) June 28, 2017
As Loesch kindly reminded her liberal audience, the "clenched fist" image was born from the "Resist Trump" movement. She had the photos to prove it.
In a fun response video for her liberal critics, Loesch invited them do a quick Google search and discover the source of the images for themselves.

Both Dana and her husband Chris then gave Kohn a brief but timely U.S. Constitution lesson, noting that breaking windows, smashing cars, and lighting cities on fire are not protected by the First Amendment.
