Dana Loesch Talks Trump, Intimidation, Abuse and Chivalry

Dana Loesch joined The Glenn Beck Program on Friday to discuss the Trump campaign and how they have been treating women. In case you’ve been under a rock this week, Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was caught on tape grabbing former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields and has been charged by police for simple assault.

Loesch has signed on with several other female media members calling for the resignation of Lewandowski, a possibility Trump strongly dismisses.

"I want to see some chivalry because that's a conservative principle. Chivalry is a conservative principle," Loesch said. "Respect, because I don't see it from the left. I'm used to seeing this behavior from progressivism. Expecting men to act like gentlemen and women to act like ladies are conservative principles. That's what I want to see. I want to see him removed from this campaign."

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

Nobody Loves Women Like Donald Trump

The Donald loves women and women love the Donald, at least that’s what he’d like everyone to believe. The past couple of weeks, Donald Trump has seemed to stumble when it comes to his treatment of women and his newfound views on abortion. It's already beginning to show --- polls reveal Trump's negativity rating is at a high of 73 percent.

"He is just falling apart," Glenn said.

Loesch went one step further and revealed one of her biggest frustrations.

"It aggravates me when people say, 'Well, you have some conservative women who are acting like they're social justice warriors because they're taking offense to this or that.' That's called common decency. There's a huge difference," she said.

Dana Aint Nobody’s Puppet

Loesch dug into her views on the latest from Trump, and Glenn quickly cleared up something people on Facebook seemed to be confused about.

“Okay. So tell me what you’re doing because I love this. When you released this, my Facebook was filled with ‘Glenn Beck puppet, Dana Loesch.’ You’ve seen this?” Glenn asked.

“And as I said on the air yesterday, nobody is telling you what to do. Nobody in their right mind is telling you what you need – ‘listen, Dana, you come into my office. I’m telling you what to do.’”

Loesch concurred that no such collusion has taken place.

“For like Ted Cruz. ‘You need to say this about Donald Trump right now’ --- that never happened.”

Girl Talk

Lately, the only thing unifying about the Trump campaign is all those lining up in opposition. Dana and Glenn talked about her effort to bring women in the media together to stand up for common decency --- but co-host Pat Gray of course had to introduce a little innuendo.

“I know them personally and have met in person before, so it’s not just an online thing. And, you know, ladies talk,” Loesch said.

“The ones that [Cruz] supposedly got together with?” Pat asked, disingenuously.

Loesch saw right through the question and answered quickly.

“Right. Right. Not the mistresses. I know. I’m saving that one for ‘Barbara Wa-wa.’ But, no, we had been talking back channel, and we were thinking, “Something really needs to be said about this because this is more than just --- a campaign issue. This is an issue with the media.”

Fair and Biased

This campaign season has been anything but fair and balanced. Trump has dominated TV time and it’s apparent who the pundits prefer. Dana explained how it’s possible to still have deeply held beliefs and have a preference while still being honest.

“I get aggravated when I see people on television and radio, they think that everybody is dumb and they’re not going to know where they’re coming from. We’re going to be in the neutral. We’re right there in the neutral,” Loesch said. “They want you to think that they’re still neutral. And that doesn’t exist. This is about a free press. This is about how a reporter should be able to go up and ask a question and not get manhandled by this needle neck who thinks he’s badder than Secret Service.”

Bruises Speak Louder Than Words

The video is one thing, but the bruises are a whole new ballgame for Glenn.

“If she was pulled down and she didn’t have bruises on her arm, I don’t think people would have paid as much attention to this,” Glenn said. “But because of those bruises --- Dana, is there any doubt --- you even put the bruises on your own arm or your own face and then you call the police and say to the police, ‘My husband just did this to me,’ any doubt that they’d take him away in handcuffs?”

“No. That’s usually kind of how it goes. When you watch Cops, that’s usually how it goes,” Loesch responded.

Recognizing Abuse

“We know what it looks like. We know what abuse looks like,” Glenn said.

Loesch reveled just how personal abuse is to her.

“Right. I grew up, and I’ve seen it in my family. So I’m not going to be lectured to anybody who wants to sit here and tell me what a battered woman looks like because I woke up and I saw it every damn day of my life, so I will not be lectured by anybody on that,” Loesch said.

While Lewandowski will have his day in court, the video and bruises are more than enough probable cause for the charges. Whether it was illegal or not, the abuse and intimidation is recognizable to any who have seen it up close and personal.

Living Through Abuse and Intimidation

Glenn and Loesch both have lived through abuse and intimidation and can see it a mile away.

“These guys --- you can recognize those guys, can’t you? If you’ve lived in it, you recognize these guys a million miles away. And they’re doing the thing that enablers and abusers always do,” Glenn said.

Loesch agreed.

"You recognize intimidation," she said. "You recognize intimidation."

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
