This menacing NRA ad calls for fighting the 'violence of lies' with the 'clenched fist of truth'

An ad released earlier this month by the National Rifle Association is making waves this week for its chilling call to fight liberals with "the clenched fist of truth."

The ad, narrated by conservative pundit Dana Loesch, starts by drawing a clear dichotomy between us versus them. "They use their media to assassinate real news. They use their schools to teach children that their president is another Hitler. They use their movie stars and singers and comedy shows and award shows to repeat their narrative over and over again. And then they use their ex-president to endorse 'the resistance,'" Loesch says.

All of this incites "them" to "protest" and to "scream racism and sexism and xenophobia and homophobia" and so on and so forth until "the only option left is for the police to do their jobs and stop the madness," Loesch says. "And when that happens, they'll use it as an excuse for their outrage," Loesch declares, concluding the only way to "fight this violence of lies" is with "the clenched fist of truth."
