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."

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.

Glenn Beck joined Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Thursday night to discuss Visa Inc.'s "horrifying" new plans to flag firearm sales by separately categorizing purchases at gun shops, a move that Glenn aptly described as "the next step in banning guns."

In what's been hailed as a major victory for gun control activists, Visa agreed to adopt the International Organization for Standardization's (ISO) new set of standards by creating a special merchant category code for gun and ammunition sales.

In his appearance on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Glenn shared a letter written by Robert B. Thomson III, a senior vice president at Visa, showing that the credit card company initially pushed back on the ISO's new rules.

“We believe that asking payment networks to serve as a moral authority by deciding which legal goods can or cannot be purchased sets a dangerous precedent,” Thomson wrote in the letter to pro-gun-control lawmakers, including Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

Just days later, however, Visa had agreed to comply with the ISO's plan to establish a new merchant category code for gun stores. So why did Visa suddenly flip?

As Glenn explained, it all comes down to pressure from America's largest union-owned bank, the Amalgamated Bank, one of the only unionized banks in the United States and a proud proponent of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) investing.

"This is the next step in banning guns," Glenn asserted.

"It's horrifying!" Tucker responded after several seconds of stunned silence.

"I'm so grateful you did the reporting on this," he told Glenn. "I'm not sure why it falls to you since we have a couple of very large daily newspapers in this country you'd think would want to report this, yet none of them did. So, Glenn Beck did."


On a recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn broke down the details of this latest attack on the Second Amendment and revealed how this is a step toward something even worse than federal gun registration.

Glenn Beck: Here's why Stacey Abrams' fetal heartbeat remarks are hilarious but TERRIFYING

Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has a new pro-abortion conspiracy theory: "There is no such thing as a [fetal] heartbeat at six weeks ... it is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have a right to take control of a woman’s body."

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere agreed Abrams' latest "misinformation" is not just ridiculous but could be dangerous if people are actually willing to believe her.

"If you want to defend abortion, go ahead and defend it. Defend what you're actually doing. Stop denying what is reality," Stu said. "If this is such a great defensible policy, then just come out and defend it, but they never can ... you notice how they can't go to the actual thing they say is so important. They keep defending these other things that aren't true."

Glenn said the pro-choice movement was successful for a long time because most people want the decision to be up to the woman and her doctor and that abortion should be safe, legal, and rare. But when leftists began "celebrating" their abortions or calling for "abortion on demand" at any point in the pregnancy, that's when they start to lose support.

"Because they've celebrated abortion and are losing regular people, you can't put that genie back in the bottle. So, what do they have to do now? They have to take the insane step of discrediting medical machines and technology," Glenn said.

"This is after two years, by the way, of them claiming the biggest scandal in the world was people suggesting the voting machines were hacked — after they previously said that voting machines were hacked in elections they [Democrats] lost," Stu pointed out.

"Honestly, gang, think this through because this is where life gets very scary. This is where you go to authoritarian rule and you can kill millions of people because you're truly now discrediting things that everyone knows is true," Glenn warned.

"So, if you disagree ... you can say that is an evil magic box that has made up sounds in it to convince people. If they will buy that, you're at the Salem witch trials. 'If she doesn't float, she wasn't a witch.' That's what you're looking at right now — and what's frightening is, [Abrams] can say this with a straight face and no one discredits her," he continued.

"You don't think that they can convince those people that you are a terrorist because of the way you vote? [...] You don't think they can convince half the country that you should be eliminated, liquidated, put into a camp, whatever authoritarians love to do? ... We are headed towards dangerous, dangerous times. We better wake up and stand together because this is frightening — it's hilarious — but because people are taking it seriously, it is terrifying," Glenn added.

A big question Glenn Beck has always had about “The Amazing Do-Over” is: How do you get the most powerful and wealthy nation that has ever existed to accept, “You will own nothing … and be happy”? A foundational principle of this country from its very inception has been land ownership. We worked hard, were fiscally responsible, and stayed away from high debt, but the progressive era began to erode all of that.

The Clinton Global Initiative recently gathered the ruling class to tell the plebes how to run their finances and called anyone who dared challenge their ideas “climate change deniers.” Glenn argues we are dangerously far down the “Road to Serfdom” and exposes the progressive playbook to keep us in line. It’s a 600-year-old medieval model that’s been the plan all along.

We’re already feeling economic pain, and yet they’re playing “Game of Thrones” with our lives. Turning us into serfs is their ultimate goal. How do they finish the complete restructuring of the American financial system and our way of life?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn connects it all on the chalkboard and details the solution to fighting back against the ruling elites.
