Dana Loesch came to me 10yrs ago pitching a sitcom starring herself: “A hot young mom who does far right radio show.” Said her age & looks would make 1 side hate her & 1 love her so everyone would watch. Was obsessed w the potential fame & money. I turned her down.
As I’ve watched her career ascent, I believe she realized that the more out there she goes, the more fame and money she gets. And I guarantee you she’s more about that than she is guns. Which is kinda worse, actually.
Dana was amused by this, until the media decided to run with the story AND publish the names of her children, as reported by Ben Howe of RedState.
Interestingly, Dana recalls it somewhat differently. She showed me the tweet at CPAC, laughing it off as some idiot that approached her years ago to try and get attention for himself. I asked if she had any correspondence saved from that long ago and if so, to forward it to me.
She couldn’t find any email correspondence, but she did find a much nicer version of Mr. Guyot when he sent her an invitation on LinkedIn about 9 years ago and she forwarded that over to me as I was considering writing a post about it.
This doesn’t exactly sound like Dana was doing the asking.
I had considered not posting it (she showed me the tweet on Thursday when it had about 225 retweets) and I decided I didn’t want to draw attention to this obvious ploy for attention from someone who shouldn’t need it after his widely acclaimed role as “bellman” in the 1993 blockbuster juggernaut, “Born Yesterday.”
But then Page Six picked up the story, as did the Daily Mail (I won’t link to that version since they went the extra mile and included the Loesch children’s names in the story), and it seemed like a good time for me to post this.
Loesch has responded on Twitter, and says that the media reporting this never asked her for comment.
My only comment on a bit of trash I saw. I wish as much effort was focused on the Broward Sheriff’s dereliction of duty. pic.twitter.com/eqXiArmJyh
Nothing, it should be debunked, but she is awful. Her strange propaganda videos her bizarre claim that the media loves mass shootings. Those things have a profound impact on a highly impressionable base of people. It’s like the worst thing to say at the worst possible time.
No, she is not right and she is very clearly and maliciously pandering to an angry crowd who’ve been indoctrinated by conspiracy theories and fear mongering. We all know this. She represents a very disturbing breakdown in the US.
Also, Sheriff Israel held a press conference to announce and confirm at least one deputy failed to go into the school while kids were being slaughtered. Now you’re saying that’s simply a claim from the police? C’mon. https://t.co/YFh3gKRXBo
This has been a terrible week for the public discourse in America, and attempting to cast dirt and pile on Dana Loesch isn’t going to fix the obvious corruption and incompetence in the Broward County Sheriff’s Office that could have stopped this killer before he stepped out of his Uber.
Deputy Scott Peterson knew Cruz well enough he ID'd him by sight. He watched him exit an Uber with a…
If the narrative continues to be to trash the NRA and Dana Loesch personally for an event they had nothing to do with, while giving the cowards of Broward a pass, then we are all in deep, deep trouble.
