Dana Loesch gave a speech in Dallas on Thursday evening and called for conservative women to come together, give grace and stay empowered.
The political commentator and NRA spokeswoman addressed a crowd of more than 1,000 women at Turning Point USA’s fourth annual Young Women’s Leadership Summit, reports the Dallas Morning News. The conference hosts a series of speakers, networking events and professional development training.
Loesch railed on the outrage mob for using outrage as a political tactic to advance left-wing policies on everything from protesting Chick-fil-A to exploiting school shootings to promote gun bans.
Loesch, who has been unjustly wrapped into, and even sporadically blamed for, a recent slew of high profile school shootings, defended herself and all American’s rights to a firearm, brushing off the misdirected criticism and urging others to do so as well.

“…I held my head high. I am not ashamed. I am not scared. And I will not apologize for defending my right of self defense.” Loesch said. “Never ever bow a knee. Never bend a knee. Never bow before the outrage mob on any issue. Ever. Know that you are in truth. What you believe is right.”
She also emphasized of the importance of grace during disagreement, encouraging conservative women to lift each other up and to mentor one another rather than criticize. “It’s always good to take up disagreements with friends privately,” Loesch advised. “My dear friend and former mentor Andrew Breitbart believed that. And they also discussed it in the gospels, so that’s the final word on that.”
The shoutout to Breitbart seemed to be her second nod of the night to the late political figure, who famously said to “walk toward the fire. Don’t worry about what they call you.” Earlier in the night, Loesch told the crowd, “when you’re taking flack you’re over the target, ladies, and that’s exactly where you need to be.”
