The far-right troublemaking duo left CPAC in order to lash out at Occupy protesters, as Adam Shriver at the St. Louis Activist Hub reports:
Earlier this week, CNN suspended Roland Martin, telling Politico's Dylan Byers in a statement:
So here's a question. How "professional" is it for a CNN "political analyst" to chase down a crowd of Occupy D.C. protesters, yell at them about rape, and accuse them of shooting at the White House? Because that's what Dana Loesch and her husband, Chris (also a former member of the St. Louis Tea Party), did earlier today. Here's a screen shot of the two of them:
"CNN executives want to raise the bar on the level of professionalism off air by contributors in general, and that too is under discussion," the executive wrote.
This shit doesn't surprise me, given Dana's outright distortions and lies repeated regarding the OWS movement.
The far less well-known Chris Loesch (founder of Shock City Studios in St. Louis) and frequent The Dana Show guest Steven Crowder clearly rapped a racial slur, the "n-word," NOT "knickers" as they claimed.
Two conservative rappers, Steven Crowder and Chris Loesch dressed in powdered wigs and jumpsuits performed a pro-conservative rap, “Mr. America” in which they appeared to use the n-word before claiming that they were saying Knickers.
An African American technician walked away after the pun which was clearly intended to reference the n-word judging by the following lyrics. The n-word or k-word as they would have you believe comes at 1:50 in the video.
From the 02.10.2012 edition of CPAC:
The Raw Story:
Bright and early Friday morning at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, D.C., a small group of Republicans were treated to perhaps the most bizarre attempt at rap music since “M.C. Rove” took the stage in front of the whole D.C. press corps in 2007.
As part of the entertainment during CPAC’s Red Carpet Blogger Awards on Friday morning,occasional Fox News contributor Steven Crowder and rapping pal Chris Loesch, married to the conservative political analyst Dana Loesch, staged a live performance of their new song, “Mr. America.”
While the actual music video of their conservative jive is graced by some level of production value, their live performance at CPAC unfortunately was not.
And now, it seems, the world knows why.
“With all this money afly you gon’ be needin’ a big freeze / I hate the size of the fed like Jesus hated the fig tree / As spending goes up, you gotta borrow some more / Borrowin’ from the chinese, Oh My lord,” they say over a beat. “Instead you just tax more, increasin’ the size / Of the federal government yeah to George’s surprise / You’ll be done like Detroit man, no You ain’t comin’ back / Forget it, I’m out, I’m muzzle loading my gat.”
Nearing the end of the song, the beat drops out after the two use the word “knickers” as if it were a racial epitaph, drawing laughs from the conservatives in attendance.
“What? Knickers? I can say knickers!” they exclaim.
Right after the pair dropped the k-word, the video shows what appears to be the only black person in the room standing up and walking away.
The last time conservatives attempted to induce rapping at CPAC was in 2010, when they put a right-wing freestyle contest on the schedule. While it wasn’t officially canceled, virtually nobody attended anyway.
The actual, produced “Mr. America” video had been published to YouTube on Friday morning — which is where the photo on this story comes from — but appeared to have been taken down by the time this article was published. Raw Story will update this story once it becomes available.
Also not surprising, considering both Dana and Chris's past on racism and race-related issues.
Dear Chris Loesch and Steven Crowder, you BOTH better apologize for your deliberate use of the "n-bomb."
