Dana Loesch and the NRA Threaten American Citizens In New Ad: “Your Time Is Running Out” [Video]

The NRA and its paid pro-gun propaganda mistress Dana Loesch goes on the defensive against “Hollywood phonies,” athletes who sit during the national anthem, journalists and almost everyone who has become critical of the massive gun lobbying group following the Parkland, Florida, school shooting in an ad that can only be seen as intimidating and threatening to those who are against the NRA’s agenda.

“To every lying member of the media, to every Hollywood phony, to the role model athletes who use their free speech to alter and undermine what our flag represents, to the politicians who would rather watch America burn than lose one ounce of their own personal power, to the late-night hosts who think their opinions are the only opinions that matter…,” Loesch says against a backing track of ominous music. “…your time is running out.”

I personally sent a complaint to Twitter reporting this omimous message and recieved the following message:


Thank you for your recent report. We have reviewed your report carefully and found that there was no violation of the Twitter Rules against abusive behavior (https://twitter.com/rules). 

There are a number of factors we take into consideration when deciding whether to take action on content:

Context matters

  • Some Tweets may seem to be abusive when viewed in isolation, but may not be when viewed in the context of a larger conversation. While we accept reports of violations from anyone, sometimes we also need to hear directly from the target to ensure that we have proper context.
  • The number of reports we receive does not impact our assessment of whether something violates the Twitter Rules. However, it may help us prioritize the order in which it gets reviewed.

We focus on behavior

  • In order to ensure that people feel safe expressing diverse opinions and beliefs, we do not tolerate behavior that crosses the line into abuse, including behavior that harasses, intimidates, or uses fear to silence another user’s voice.
  • Additionally, we enforce policies when someone reports behavior that is abusive and targets an entire protected group and/or individuals who may be members. This targeting can happen in multiple ways (e.g., mentioning someone, tagging someone in a photo, and more).

If, after you filed this original report, this person Tweeted additional content that you believe to be abusive, or if there’s additional context you think we need to know regarding this situation, please reply to this email and provide us with further details (including links to any additional Tweets).

In addition to Twitter’s efforts to enforce our Terms of Service, we also provide tools to assist users in controlling their Twitter experience:

Thank you again for taking the time to submit your report to us. If you encounter additional content on Twitter that you believe to be abusive, please let us know by filing a new report.



Dear Twitter:

You know if OUR time runs out so does yours. #JustSaying
