Dana Loesch to Media: ‘You Guys Love Tragedy’

Dana Loesch absolutely rocked the stage at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) this week.

The National Rifle Association (NRA) spokeswoman gave a fiery speech about gun control and our second amendment rights. She also touched on the recent school shooting that left 17 people dead in Florida.

The shooting has created new challenges for the NRA, as young students who survived the attack on Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., have emerged as telegenic, outspoken proponents for gun restrictions, including a ban on assault weapons.

Loesch, a host on Blaze TV before joining the NRA, has been the organization’s public face, and on Wednesday endured tough questions in front of a generally hostile audience at the CNN town hall.

“Dana Loesch, I want you to know that we will support your two children in a way that you will not,” student Emma González said.

“Well first off Emma, I want to applaud you for standing up and speaking out,” Loesch fired back, but also added the children should not chided for speaking out. “I was a politically active teenager, and I’m on this stage as a result of that.”

While on stage at CPAC, Dana touched back on that conversation and addressed the media: “You guys love it. I’m not saying that you love the tragedy, but I am saying that you love the ratings,” she added, “Crying white mothers are ratings gold to you and many in the legacy media in the back.”


The media likes what sells. No matter how propaganda is it.
