If there's anything shameful in what only antisemitic Media Matters apparently still feels is an ongoing Sandra Fluke debate, it's the way antisemitic Media Matters continues it's un-American, Soros-funded war on free speech in America.
While they may be especially focused on coming for the Jews in certain areas, anyone on the Right is ultimately fair game for the crew at antisemitic Media Matters. As far as they're concerned, antisemitism is just fine, but if one dares speak out against a leftist policy of Barack Obama's, all bets are off and they will lie and stretch any truth to silence you.
Yesterday's attack targets Big Journalism's Dana Loesch. Not coincidentally, Dana was written up at length today by Tricia Romano at the Daily Beast. Point being, if you're of the Right, the higher one's profile rises, the more vicious and dishonest are Eric Boehlert's and antisemitic Media Matters's attacks.
Antisemitic Media Matters posts an audio clip of Dana Loesch's FM radio show. Listening to it, Dana talks about many associated topics. In between she discusses the left's war on religion by attempting to force the Catholic church to purchase and distribute birth control. That's the heart of the matter and little more.
Among several other related remarks, Loesch suggests House Speaker John Boehner "just got out of the tanning bed, he's a little bit dizzy," going on to ask if Boehner is "an agent for Obama." Now, are we supposed to take that literally, as Media Matters would suddenly like us to with regard to pretty typical talk radio comments on Sandra Fluke? No, of course not.
What Media Matters is actually engaged in is a grossly un-American hate campaign to silence critics of the Left, Media Matters itself and Barack Obama. Such campaigns are as dirty and malignant and un-American as one might find on the Internet, or elsewhere. They deserve to be condemned, marginalized, if not wholly ignored, and little more. It's that they always come in a purely political context that makes them as pathetic, as they are un-American. If Media Matters, a reportedly bizarre and erratic David Brock and Eric Boehlert had their way, only those who agree with them would be allowed to speak in America. Now, back to your bunker, boys - and take merry little band of paid storm trooper hacks along with you.
No, Mr. Riehl, Loesch's "free speech" hasn't been assaulted because MMFA was right to call her out on her constant attacks against Sandra Fluke. And for the 10,000th time, Eric Boehlert and MMFA are NOT "Anti-Semitic."
Amid the controversy over Rush Limbaugh's misogynistic attacks on Sandra Fluke, CNN contributor Dana Loesch has aggressively pursued the right-wing campaign to bully the Georgetown law student. After announcing that she would call Fluke "whatever I want," Loesch has called Fluke a "nympho" and used her radio show and posts at Big Journalism to claim that Fluke "embarrass[ed] herself and her sex by ... discussing about how she has a huge inability to control her sexual urges."
From KFTK's The Dana Show:
Fluke Also Testified About The Need For Access To Contraceptive Medicine After A Woman Was Raped.
From Fluke's testimony:One student told us that she knew birth control wasn't covered, and she assumed that's how Georgetown's insurance handled all of women's sexual healthcare, so when she was raped, she didn't go to the doctor even to be examined or tested for sexually transmitted infections because she thought insurance wasn't going to cover something like that, something that was related to a woman's reproductive health. As one student put it, "this policy communicates to female students that our school doesn't understand our needs." These are not feelings that male fellow students experience. And they're not burdens that male students must shoulder. [Fluke testimony via Media Matters, 2/23/12]For the truth about Sandra Fluke's testimony, click here
Loesch Falsely Accused Fluke Of "Discussing About How She Has A Huge Inability To Control Her Sexual Urges." Loesch addressed the controversy surrounding Limbaugh's misogynistic attacks on Fluke during the March 7 edition of her radio show, saying:LOESCH: As the mother of sons, if I had a daughter who decided to embarrass herself and her sex by going before members of Congress on national television and discussing about how she has a huge inability to control her sexual urges, and thus needs a bailout, she needs individuals to pay higher insurance premiums so she can have free contraception at her university at which she is going by way of public funds apparently, that would to me would be more embarrassing than the act of what she's doing being called out for what it is listed as in the dictionary. That's just the hard truth of the matter.
Back in the days when women acted better in public, and they didn't go and discuss about how they had an absolute insatiable sexual appetite that needs a thousand dollars a year in order to prevent pregnancy, people did that because there was a consequence to talking about your sex life to such an extent publicly on national television. And apparently all those inhibitions are out the window. Nothing is sacred anymore and thus nothing is attractive or alluring, because everything is trashy, and I think Fluke's testimony before members of Congress has contributed to that. [KFTK, The Dana Show, 3/7/12]
Loesch: Fluke Was "Embarrassing Herself Before Congress By Testifying That She Simply Cannot Stop Getting It On." In a March 2 Big Journalism post Loesch wrote:More have admonished Limbaugh's description of Sandra Fluke than admonished a 30 year-old woman embarrassing herself before congress by testifying that she simply cannot stop getting it on and her inability to control her urges constitutes infringing upon everyone else for a bailout. [Big Journalism, 3/2/12]
Loesch: Fluke "Wants To Be Able To Be As Promiscuous As She Wants To Be." During the March 2 edition her radio show, Loesch responded to a caller who said that Fluke should "change her career and go work at the Mustang Ranch out there in Vegas," and said:LOESCH: Oh my gosh. That could be -- you know, I'm telling you, she's worried about money apparently instead of going and asking for the government. But see that's -- and, Mike, I appreciate your call -- it comes down because she doesn't want to have to pay her own bills, because she's an independent woman. She's an independent woman like that Destiny's Child song, but she doesn't want to take care of all of her own business, because that's what independent women do. Independent women expect the government, which is characterized as the old cartoon Uncle Sam, to take care of their financial needs. She wants to be able to be as promiscuous as she wants to be, and all of the accoutrements that go along with that, she wants those to be financed by the government, because that's what independent women do. [KFTK, The Dana Show, 3/2/12]
Loesch: Fluke Is "Doing It More Than She's Studying In Law School. ... They Act Like They're Nymphos."
On her radio show, Loesch said of Fluke: "She's doing it more than she's studying in law school. Is that why our -- is that why law sucks lately? Is that why we're having such a problem in our courts?" Loesch also said, "They act like they're nymphos. That's what they act like." [KFTK, The Dana Show, 2/28/12]
She's a majorly insane moron.
Now, on to David Corn and his newest book, Showdown: The Inside Story of How Obama Fought Back Against Boehner, Cantor, and the Tea Party:
His book correctly explained how Fixed Noise exploited their gullible viewers (or at least a decent portion of their viewership) into believing that "Barack Obama is a Muslim."
Mackenzie Weiniger at Politico:
President Barack Obama blamed Fox News for his political woes in a private meeting with labor leaders in 2010, saying he was “losing white males” who tune into the cable outlet and “hear Obama is a Muslim 24/7,” according to journalist David Corn’s new book, “Showdown.”
Corn writes that after the midterm elections, Obama told labor leaders in December 2010 that he held Fox partly responsible for him “losing white males.”
“…Fed by Fox News, they hear Obama is a Muslim 24/7, and it begins to seep in…The Republicans have been at this for 40 years. They have new resources, but the strategy is old,” Corn recounted Obama as saying.
Sean Hannity addressed Obama’s reference to Fox News on his radio show Monday, saying it “sounds like the president is very angry behind the scenes, very angry.”
And, Hannity said, he wasn’t surprised Obama decided to pin the blame on Fox. “Now this is a guy who claims he never watches cable news and then he’s making this broad sweeping statement that’s false,” Hannity said.Bret Baier, the host of Fixed Noise's Special Report, misleadingly stated that "there were no examples of our hosts saying Barack Obama is a 'Muslim.'" Totally false, as several FNC/FBN personalities (including Baier and his program) have questioned Obama's faith and alleged that he was a "Muslim", a "fake Christian," or even "[Godless] atheist."
“You always have Fox and talk radio to fall back on when all else fails,” Hannity added.
Here are at least a few examples of FNC/FBN commentators disparaging Obama's religion:
Special Report On Obama: "Islam Or Isn't He?"
During a June 2009 segment, Special Report aired a quote by Obama foreign policy adviser Denis McDonough, in which he talked about how Obama "experienced Islam on three continents" and spent part of his childhood in Indonesia with a Muslim father. Special Report included this question above the quote: "Islam Or Isn't He?" [Fox News, Special Report with Bret Baier, 6/3/09]
On Fox, Donald Trump Claimed Obama's Birth Certificate "Maybe ... Says He Is A Muslim."
On The O'Reilly Factor, frequent guest Donald Trump said:TRUMP: Listen, I have a birth certificate. I have my birth certificate. And in fact, they said the one I gave yesterday wasn't good enough. So I actually got the one from the Health Department, which is the perfect one. Because they were saying the one I gave yesterday wasn't good enough, so I got the other. People have birth certificates. He doesn't have a birth certificate. He may have one but there's something on that, maybe religion, maybe it says he is a Muslim. I don't know. Maybe he doesn't want that. Or he may not have one. But I will tell you this. If he wasn't born in this country, it's one of the great scams of all time. [Fox News, The O'Reilly Factor, 3/30/11]
Fox Hosted "Conservative Comedian" Who Claimed Obama Is "Faking" Being Christian.
Fox & Friends hosted "conservative comedian" Brad Stine, who said of the president: "If Santorum doesn't want to question his Christianity, I will, because he's not really part of that." Stine continued, "why can't Obama be slammed for faking [Christianity]?" [Fox News, Fox & Friends, 2/20/12]
On Fox, Lars Larson Claimed Obama "Bows Down To Leaders Of ... Muslim Countries And Then He Disses Easter In His Own Country."
On Fox News' America Live, guest host Shannon Bream stated: "The president and White House often seem very frustrated about these polling numbers that come out that show a significant amount of Americans question the president's faith and wonder whether he's truly Muslim, even though he says again and again he is a Christian." She then asked: "So is it fair for the White House to take a little heat that he didn't step up and be more vocal on Easter?" Radio host Lars Larson stated that Obama "is paying more attention" to Muslim holidays.Fox Nation Promoted Coulter's Claim That Obama Is An Atheist.
On September 1, 2010, Fox Nation promoted a column by Ann Coulter claiming that Obama is an atheist, using the headline: "Obama Is Not A Muslim, But...." [Fox Nation, 9/1/10]
Fox & Friends Pushed False Smear That Obama Attended A "Madrassa." On the January 19, 2007, editions of Fox & Friends First and Fox & Friends, co-host Brian Kilmeade, along with co-hosts Steve Doocy and Gretchen Carlson, spent several segments advancing a false report that then-Sen. Barack Obama was raised a Muslim and attended a madrassa, or Islamic school, as a child in Indonesia. At one point, Doocy asked: "When people find out this stuff, they're going to go, 'Why didn't anybody ever mention that that man right there was raised as -- spent the first decade of his life raised by his Muslim father as a Muslim and was educated in a madrassa?' " [Fox News, Fox & Friends Firstand Fox & Friends, 1/19/07]
From the 03.19.2012 edition of FNC's Special Report With Bret Baier:
Enter hack Dana Loesch: At her Big Journalism blog, she says Corn's assertions are "misleading and distracting from the fact that the Obama and Dems are failures."
I sense a feeling of spagetti-noodle strategy from Axelrod and Plouffe. They've thrown a number of possible bogeyman into the realm of public discourse to see what would stick. It was Bush, then Palin, then Fox News, then the tea party, then the phantom "War On Women," then Palin again, now we're back to Fox and the race card. The only people who cared about Barack Obama's ethnicity during the campaign was the Barack Obama campaign.
Ms. Loesch, you have lost this round to David Corn, and he's more truthful than you.
They're doing it again with Corn because every other tactic they've tried to distract the public from the disastrous results of Obama's leadership have utterly failed. The class warfare failed, the trumped-up "War On Women" is a failure, and polls are numerous in echoing the public's lack of confidence in his capability to deal with the economy or gas prices. No one cares. Corn's book would have been a tired cliché during the campaign; released now just makes it all the more comedically desperate.
