Dana Loesch sure knows how to fire up a crowd. The talk radio host and frequent guest on GBTV is no stranger to controversy with the mainstream media - after all, calling out their false narratives and distortions of the truth is a big part of her job over at Breitbart.com. And tonight was no different. Dana delivered a rousing speech to the packed house at American Airlines arena that held the feet of the media to the fire.
Loesch didn't wait long to blast the media and their desire to ignore the truth to fit their own agenda. She blasted ABC's chief "investigative" corespondent Brian Ross for incorrectly connecting the "Dark Knight" shooter to the Tea Party last week.
"What I find absolutely reprehensible, is when we have what is supposed to be the watchdog for the people decide to make another new set of victims in its reporting - its reckless, it's malicious, slanderous reporting. And that's what happened, another set of victims was created after the Aurora shooting," Loesch said to massive crowd.
Ross's "craptastic" reporting, as she described it, wasn't the only one taken down by Mrs. Loesch on stage tonight. Loesch cited several examples where the media attempted to blame the Tea Party for violence. Examples like the shooting last year in Tuscan, AZ where Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was shot, which resulted in the lives of Tea Party leaders being threatened. Other examples she used can be found here.
Dana also made sure to point out the acts of violence you didn't hear about, like the rapes and assaults that took place during Occupy Wall Street and the Occupier who opened fire on the White House.
"Did you hear about that in the media? No you didn't. Because they like the White House, Nancy Pelosi said 'bless them'."
Dana doesn't just know the facts though, she knows how to fight back and win the battle the media has waged against conservatives.
"I'm not a Nazi, I'm not a bigot, I'm not a racist - I'm a mother. I am a patriot, like you. And if the media doesn't want to give us column inches, we're going to take them. If the media doesn't want to report on the fact that here we have 14,000 people in this auditorium, who paid their way to be here to stand up for conservatism, we will. We don't need the mainstream media."
While the networks like ABC, NBC, etc. may have been around a long time, while conservatives may not have invented talk radio, Dana points out that we took it over.
She was met by loud applause as she pointed out, "that's [talk radio] ours now, that's ours. Yeah… we took over talk radio, we took over cable news. One of my favorite things - we took over your 'internets, liberals."
"So you won't report on us - we'll report on what we do. And we'll make you all look like clowns to the point where you have to cover us, because you're losing to us."
Dana, arguably one of the most active conservatives on twitter didn't need the mainstream media to get where she is today. She told the crowd at American Airlines arena that she studied journalism for awhile and saw what went on behind the scenes, which is why she spends so much time exploding the lies in the media.
"Today's headlines are tomorrow's history," she said.
She went on to remind the crowd, like Glenn often does, what we are doing right now is what our children and our grandchildren will be reading in their history books.
"Your grandchildren will grow up and will want to read about how grandma and grandpa fought back against the man to take back their country," she proclaimed. "We are the counterculture movement."
In closing, Dana boldly stated, "the media is supposed to be our watchdog, not Barack Obama's lapdog."
"Remember, we're fighting for the future, we're fighting for history," she continued. "This is our country, our media, we're going to make sure it's accurately reflected in the history books. It's going to take all of us to do it. Get connected. Get on Facebook. Get on Twitter. Get a blog. Read them, comment on them and support them. That's what it's going to take."
