NRA to New York Times: ‘We’re Coming For You’

Print More

In a National Rifle Association ad, spokeswoman Dana Loesch has a strong warning for The New York Times. “We’re coming for you,” she says in the video that attacks the Times as fake news and an “untrustworthy, dishonest rag,” USA Today reports. Saying the Times protects its “Democrat overlords,” Loesch promises the NRA will “laser focus” on the newspaper. “Consider this the proverbial shot across your proverbial bow. We’re going to fisk The New York Times,” Loesch claims to say.

Fisk is slang for “to refute or criticize (a journalistic article or blog) point by point.” In a fuller version of the ad, closed captioning shows the word “fisk,” but “#ClenchedFistofTruth” was tweeted with the video, possibly prompting some on social media to report that the NRA said it would “fist” the newspaper.
