Today, crass anti-choice extremist shitstain Dana Loesch is bullying #Rally4MOWomen attendees for simply exercising their 1st Amendment right to express their opinions on how extreme anti-abortion policies being proposed are affecting Missouri women.

Typical from someone who is a habitual disgrace to women in this country.

Michelle Malkin’s propaganda hive Twitchy piles on, which Loesch retweeted:

You, Dana, are an ignorant bully.

It’s people like you that want to take away the right to make the choice to have an abortion.

Conservative columnist Michelle Malkin dismissed discussions of income inequality as a “war on wealth” meant to shame and bully job creators.

Last week, billionaire venture capitalist Tom Perkins wrote an inflammatory letter to The Wall Street Journal that likened an alleged ”progressive war on the American one percent” and “demonization of the rich “to Nazi Germany’s Kristallnacht, asking:”Kristallnacht was unthinkable in 1930; is its descendant ‘progressive’ radicalism unthinkable now.” Perkins’ letter received widespread criticism.

In her January 29 syndicated column, Malkin defended Perkins, deeming the reaction to Perkin’s controversial letter as further evidence of a “bullying epidemic” she labeled as “wealth-shaming” by “the grievance industry.”

Conservative media viciously attacked Texas State Senator Wendy Davis after she announced her candidacy for governor, linking Davis to infanticide and calling an image of her with kids “sick” and “disgusting.” 

Fox News’ Michelle Malkin: “Abortion Extremist” Davis Sounds “Ghoulish,” Should Have Posed With “Gosnell Jars.” Fox contributor Michelle Malkin claimed that Davis sounded “ghoulish” when she had tweeted about “a better tomorrow” for Texans. Malkin later tweeted that instead of children in the photo, Davis should have been surrounded by convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell’s jars, which reportedly contained human remains.

Fox News and other conservatives are busy attacking Attorney General Eric Holder for assuring the public that law enforcement will not tolerate any acts of violence or discrimination in the wake of the Boston Marathon terror attack. But their latest feigned outrage ignores that hate crimes against Muslims are a very real concern. 

Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly covered the story on the April 30 edition of America Livehosting Fox contributor Michelle Malkin, who mocked the “phantom threats of hate crime epidemics that have never happened.” (This was the second straight day Kelly had devoted a segment to expressing outrage about Holder’s common sense comments.) 

Other conservatives lashed out at Holder for his vow to defend religious minorities in America.

Fox’s weird attempt to push back against Holder’s pledge fit nicely into Fox’s frequently anti-Muslimprogramming. It also highlighted how little interest Fox has in the larger issue of anti-Muslim violence.  

noted last week how Fox News remains largely blind to acts of right-wing extremist terror and political violence because that storyline doesn’t fit into the cable channel’s preferred narrative about Muslim terrorists, or Fox’s eagerness to assign collective blame onto the Muslim-American community.

Here’s a recent timeline:

  • Dearborn MI, January 2011: A man is arrested with a vehicle full of explosives he intended to use to blow up a local mosque. 
  • Queens, NY, January 2012: A Molotov cocktail was thrown at an Islamic center. The suspect reportedly told police he intended “to inflict as much damage as possible and take out as many Muslims and Arabs as possible.”
  • Lombard, IL, August 2012: An acid-filled bottle was thrown at an Islamic school during the nighttime Ramadan prayers.
  • Joplin, MO, 2012: The local mosque burned to the ground one month after it was the target of an arson attack.
  • Toledo, OH, September 2012: Authorities ruled that a gasoline fire on the main floor of the Islamic Center of Greater Toledo was the result of an arson attack.
  • San Antonio, TX, November 2012: A man was arrested for threatening to kill as many people as possible at the Islamic Academy of San Antonio.
  • Fremont, CA, December 2012: A man entered the Ibrahim Khalillullah Islamic Center and threatened to shoot everyone.
  • Fayette, GA, January 2013: The windows of a Muslim house of prayer were shot out at 2 a.m.
  • Oklahoma City, OK, April 2013: Vandals spray-painted racial slurs on the walls of the American Muslim Association.

On this Sunday’s Reliable Sources on CNN, ESPN senior writer Andy Katz was asked by host Howard Kurtz about Fox hosts Eric Bolling and Sean Hannity and their defense of the abusive Rutgers basketball coach last week and Katz was more than happy to give Kurtz an earful with what he thought of them.

Some conservatives outraged over Google’s choice to feature a César Chávez doodle instead of something Easter-related were especially angry because they mistook César Chávez for the far more polarizing Hugo Chávez. March 31 is Cesar Chavez Day, not the late Hugo Chávez’s 86th birthday, as some have claimed.

It didn’t help that conservative Twitter watchdogs Twitchy, led by Michelle Malkin, misidentified the Google doodle in question as Hugo.

Here’s Michelle Malkin tweeting a link to the post.

The headline was changed a few hours before Malkin tweeted the link.

For people still confused about the difference between Hugo Chávez and César Chávez, try Google. Or Bing!

Correction: Michelle Malkin’s tweet came after “Hugo Chávez” had been changed to “César Chávez.” An earlier version of this post misstated the timing. (3/31)

There’s this new hashtag #LiberalTips2AvoidRape that’s now on its second day of trending on Twitter.

For the uninitiated, this isn’t an example of right-wingers deciding out-of-the-blue to be insensitive to rape victims. They have their reason, and his name is Joe Salazar, a first-term Democratic state representative in Colorado. On Friday, Salazar spoke on the state House floor in support of House Bill 13-1226, which would eliminate “the authority of a concealed handgun permit holder to possess a concealed handgun on the campus of an institution of high education.” In other words, Salazar’s bill would ban concealed firearms on college campuses in Colorado. Opponents of the proposed legislation maintain that banning concealed carry on campuses would make it harder for students to protect themselves against mass shooters and rapists on school grounds.

Salazar came down on the side of those who believe that more loaded guns on college campuses is a terrible idea. (This isn’t such a radical opinion if you look at the data.) Hedelivered the following rebuttal on the state House floor:

It’s why we have call boxes, it’s why we have safe zones, that’s why we have the whistles. Because you just don’t know who you’re gonna be shooting at. And you don’t know if you feel like you’re gonna be raped, or if you feel like someone’s been following you around, or if you feel like you’re in trouble and when you may actually not be, that you pop out that gun and you pop… pop a round at somebody.

There’s footage of the speech here.

It’s pretty clear what Salazar was trying to say: Frightened college kids carrying handguns might result in unintended casualties. You could argue that it was clumsily phrased, but there isn’t anything nefarious. The statement was so blah that the Colorado House Republican minority didn’t bother to issue a press release about Salazar’s statement. At least not until after conservative bloggers, seeking to brand somebody the Democratic Todd “Legitimate Rape” Akin, commenced their social-media freak-out during the long President’s Day weekend.

Salazar was labeled the new poster boy for the “real war on women,” and painted as someone who denies women the right to protect themselves against sexual assault. He was portrayed as an out-of-touch, gun-stealing lefty who promoted blowing a whistle over actually fighting off an attack. Many also latched onto Salazar’s “you don’t know if you feel like you’re gonna be raped,” upgraded the meaning to something around the lines of, “women can’t ever tell when they’re about to get raped/getting raped,” and voilà! New Todd Akin.

"It’s not ‘rape-rape’ until a male Dem gives his stamp of approval, you dumb broads," an anonymous staff writer wrote at this website founded by conservative pundit Michelle Malkin. Her site has been at the forefront of the Salazar-related uproar. Dana LoeschGlenn Beck, Herman Cain’s CainTV, folks at Fox News, and many others piled on accordingly.

Another reason why Mother Jones rocks!

The evil kook is at it again: Recently writing for fellow former CNN “contributor” Erick Erickson’s RedState blog, callous RWNJ asshole Dana Loesch is peddling even more distortions on guns and women. The victim of Loesch’s misleading lies: Colorado State Rep. Joe Salazar (D-COLD31) for defending rape whistles and supporting a concealed weapons ban on college campuses.

KDVR, Denver’s FOX affiliate:

DENVER — First-year state Rep. Joe Salazar is apologizing for a statement during Friday’s debate over a concealed weapons ban on college campuses that has drawn the ire of conservatives across the blogosphere.
In arguing in favor of the ban, Salazar, D-Thornton, said that women on college campuses don’t need guns to feel that they’re safe. 
“It’s why we have call boxes, it’s why we have safe zones, it’s why we have the whistles,” Salazar said on the House floor. “Because you just don’t know who you’re gonna be shooting at. And you don’t know if you feel like you’re gonna be raped, or if you feel like someone’s been following you around or if you feel like you’re in trouble when you may actually not be, that you pop out that gun and you pop … pop around at somebody.” 
“I’m sorry if I offended anyone. That was absolutely not my intention,” Salazar said. “We were having a public policy debate on whether or not guns makes people safer on campus. I don’t believe they do. That was the point I was trying to make. If anyone thinks I’m not sensitive to the dangers women face, they’re wrong.

But that only served to egg on the right-wing morons, such as Loesch and Malkin.

She wrote in her RedState blog her usual distortionist BS:

Chill, women, says Colorado Democrat Rep. Joe Salazar. While arguing for the disarmament of college students, Salazar says that even if women feel like they’re going to be raped, they may not, so who needs a firearm for protection?  

This is the real “war on women” I’ve talked about: the progressive insistence that women disarm. Women, according to Rep. Salazar, are hysterical things which shoot indiscriminately at any and everything. 

This “feel like you’re going to be raped” nonsense is as poorly-worded as the “shut that whole thing down” drama from last fall. If Democrats don’t swiftly condemn this, I see this used as a tactic to showcase the vast lack of respect Democrats have for a woman’s right to self defense.

While she attacked Salazar, Loesch had the nerve to defend 2012 Senate candidate and former Congressman Todd Akin’s “legitimate rape” remarks. BTW, Mrs. Liaresch, Salazar is NOT advocating “disarment” of women. She also falsely accused Democrats having a lack of respect for women.

Salazar claims to have a record of defending women’s rights but his actions to disenfranchise them of their Second Amendment rights are completely contradictory to that claim. One in four collegiate women report rape and one in five are raped. Salazar wants to deprive women of their right to defense with these odds? Just blow your rape whistles and pray that an attacker represents the “safe zone” boundaries? The best apology is a reversal of his war on women.

This claim by her is absolutely pants-on-fire false.

She took to Twitter to further demonize Salazar (and by extension, the Democratic Party):

Dana Loesch, you are a disgrace to your own Goddamn gender and to gun owners!

Another conservative loon on Twitter, @RichardRSmithJr, is making this the “Democrats have a full-blown Todd Akin on their hands” fallacy:

Fellow Colorado resident and deranged nutjob Michelle Malkin joined in on the Salazar-bashing:

As RedState reports, on Friday, Salazar argued against concealed carry on college campuses in favor of call boxes, whistles and “safe zones.” Why? Because you as a woman might “feel like you’re in trouble when you may actually not be” — better to head to the call box and let a man with a gun decide if the danger is real or not (if he shows up in time, that is).

You are such a crybaby, Dana! Get over it, and no, progressives/liberals/Democrats like Salazar are NOT “anti-gun”, “anti-women”, or “pro-rapist.”
