NRA threatens the New York Times with a.....fisting?

Courtesy of The Hill: 

Conservative political pundit and National Rifle Association spokeswoman Dana Loesch took on The New York Times in a video posted by the NRA on Friday in which she says "we're coming for you." 

"We've had it with your constant protection of your Democrat overlords, your refusal to acknowledge any truth that upsets the fragile construct that you believe is real life," Loesch told the Times in the video. 

"And we've had it with your pretentious, tone-deaf assertion that you are in any way truth or fact-based journalism," Loesch continued. 

"Consider this the shot across your proverbial bow. We're going to fist the New York Times and find out just what deep rich means to this old gray hag. This untrustworthy, dishonest rag that has subsisted on the welfare of mediocrity for one, two, three more decades?

"We're going to laser-focus on your so-called 'honest pursuit of truth.' In short, we're coming for you," Loesch said in the video.

Uhhh, so is the NRA threatening the new York Times with violence, of some kind of super aggressive sex play.

As you know I am just an innocent from up North, but isn't "fisting" something that should only take place between two consenting adults, and not inflicted on another person as a form of punishment? #Askingforafriend.

As it turns out, thanks to Dana Loesh's killer spokesperson skills, I, like many others, misheard Loesch who now claims that what she said was,  "We're going to FISK the New York Times."

Huh?

She later took to Twitter to defend herself.
Okay well I am fairly well read, and pride myself on having a rather extensive vocabulary, and I have NEVER heard the word "fisk" before.

So I guess I will leave it up to each of you to decide whether or not Dana Loesch offered to sexually gratify the staff of the New York Times,  or whether she is simply making up her own batshit crazy vocabulary as she goes along.

  2. I notice it's still DemocRAT overlords and not DemocraTIC overlords.

    This was a branding strategy of Karl Rove in the 90s. He wanted all of his minions to use DemocRAT with the emphasis on RAT to brand the Democrats subliminally. Seems to have worked as you never hear anyone using DemocraTIC any more, not even in the media or in print. Yet another example of the whimsy, weak DemocraTIC rolling over and handing over their lunch money.

    I had not heard of FISK or fist. I thought it was a misprint in the copy for fight and she read it right off the page the way it was written, typo and all. Like the paid airhead she is. Just read it, don't even think about what you're saying.

    The rest of the copy is a little questionable too.

    Like, subsisted on the welfare of mediocrity for one, two three more decades? WTF? I think someone with a degree in literature or communications could have written both a more graceful and more biting commentary than that.

    Whatever.

    It's the NRA? Who gives a fuck what they think?

    Yes, who gives a flying leap what the NRA has to say? It is so out of touch with real people it is irrelevant. Only the conspiracy nuts pay to play with the NRA anymore. And I live in Alaska where in my neighborhood everybody, even we liberals, have a stack of guns. And, if you are wondering, the valley is evenly divided. So, whoever this crazy woman is, she is irrelevant and jealous the Times is still relevant. Oh, btw, the NY Times is a hell of a lot older than the last few decades. And if she is implying it has gone to seed, she ought to actually try being a real journalist. I think they deserve to make the same as military now, given they are in the trenches risking their lives actually writing articles rather than tweeting, like idiot right-wing bomb throwers.

      'Obviously, YOUR PARENTS DIDN'T LOVE YOU ENOUGH to buy you something called "Hooked on Phonics," or you'd know what this fisk word means.

      My parents, while not exactly dirt poor, counted their pennies and depended on what we learned in school, the books we could all borrow from the public library, and wide-ranging conversations around the dinner table. Nope, we talked about a lot, over many years, but we never got to "fisk." If we ever felt offensive, I'm sure we came up with milder terms. We didn't need some profit-making vocabulary aids to learn how to speak and write: our parents and teachers and professors helped us on the way,

    CNN political reporter Pamela Brown said on Saturday that new details have emerged in Special Counsel Bob Mueller’s investigation of President Donald Trump and his connections to the Russian government as well as individuals in that country’s criminal underworld.

    “Investigators are delving into financial crimes including some unconnected to the election,” said Brown. “Investigators have combed through the list of shell companies and buyers of Trump-branded real estate properties. They’ve scrutinized the roster of tenants at Trump Tower in Manhattan — reaching back several years.”

    Brown said that investigators are zeroing in on financial crimes because they present “a more concrete path to prosecution.”

    She also said that “even investigative leads that are not connected to Russia but involve Trump associates are being referred to the special counsel to encourage subjects of the investigation to cooperate.”

    “CNN has learned new details of how Mueller is running his special counsel team,” Brown said. “More than three dozen attorneys, FBI agents and support staff, experts in investigating fraud and financial crimes — broken into groups focused separately on collusion and obstruction of justice.”

    Is she gay or putting down gays? Is she crazy? well yes. Is she a wimp? well yes she is.

    I am so sick of right wing homophobes trying to make moderates or liberals look like they are weak.

    Dana Loesch: From a woman who was taught BY MY PARENTS what it means to be a lady. You have no clue.

    I remember junior high/high school well.
    I also moved on. Celebrating 60 next month, and absolutely NO time for "women" such as these.

    “My sheep were terrified,” Choi, 44, said on Thursday inside her two-story barn a mile east of Trump National Golf Club, as half a dozen Shetland sheep grazed outside. “It’s awful. We don’t have the infrastructure here. We can’t support the weight of his presence.”

    So what do we all think it will take before no woman is called a slut again? Instant Obliteration of anyone who calls someone a slut?

    How can we help women gain equality ? It's 2017 FFS.

    My colleague was slutshamed yesterday and her 13 yr old son literally almost punched the person. Proud of him but no child should ever have to defend a parent because of a piece of shit.

      There will always be a negative and positive. Ying and Yang. But! There are more "positive" "good" humans than bad. So encourage children to be respectful and non violent.

  24. As a long time participant in the creation evolution debate, I recognize that "fisk" is part of the recognized vocabulary. That said, I also recognize that it's not a commonly understood word. Further, I doubt that the majority of NRA supporters understand that word; let's not forget that the message is directed towards those supporters, and not the NYT.

    Oh, for fuck's sake.

    This article provided a couple of terms of which I had limited to no knowledge.

    With alllllll the non-stop blathering about "fake news" over the last year, I have never ever heard the term "fisk."

    As for Loesch's "clenched fist of truth" (bwahaha), my new-found knowledge indicates that when "fisting", the fingers are straight, not actually clenched into a fist.

    Loesch seems to be an angry idiot.

    Those 'good' folks at the NRA can't be happy unless they have a bogeyman to boost their gun sales. Since there isn't one in the WH any more, now they've decided to vilify every blessed citizen who isn't one of them. They won't be happy until they've started a war between their paranoid followers and every one else.
