NRA’s Dana Loesch Links Student Walkout to Louis Farrakhan’s ‘Serious Anti-Semitic Accusations’

NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch condemned this week’s student marches for gun control by invoking a controversy involving those who helped orchestrate the nationwide demonstrations.

Loesch appeared on Fox & Friends to talk about how much anti-gun rhetoric emerged yesterday while protesters demanded legislative action in the aftermath of the Parkland school shooting. Loesch acknowledged that the students have the right to express their views, but she attacked those who were trying to “exploit” the marches for political gain.

“I know the walkouts yesterday were organized by the Women’s March, which are dealing with some serious anti-Semitic accusations right now which maybe perhaps wasn’t the best optic,” Loesch said. “I think that they make it harder for people to be heard when they try to get some of the attention that these kids are getting right now from everyone because they’re going out and expressing their viewpoints.”

Loesch was referring to the recent controversy surrounding the Women’s March leaders and other prominent Democrats who have ties to Louis Farrakhan. Over the last few days, several members of the Left have been under fire for affiliating with Farrakhan and refusing to explicitly condemn him for his extreme views, including his blatant anti-Semitism.

In the rest of her TV hit, Loesch continued to slam Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, the FBI, and other officials who failed to stop the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooter despite the warning signs they received before his rampage.
