In the wake of last weekend’s violent “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, which resulted in three deaths and dozens of injuries, Dana Loesch has set the record straight on identity politics.
“I want to make something incredibly clear,” explained Dana on her Facebook page. “The alt-right is NOT conservative. … It is an identity politics movement. It is based in identity politics just like ‘Black Lives Matter’ is based in identity politics, just like Antifa is based in identity politics. ”
Dana continued on “Dana” today saying, “Alt-right is antithetical to conservatism.” She went on to explain that alt-right shares the same values and belief sets as Antifa and other political groups such as neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klan that “look at identity over the animating principles of freedom.”
“Can we stop making everything about right and left, left and right?” asked Dana. “Either you are for individual freedom, either you are for liberty and you believe in the Constitution, or you don’t. There are no sides.”
