Loesch still attacking Obama and Muslims, defends Romney on Libya and Egypt

As the Libya and Egypt stories continue to dominate the news cycle, Islamophobic wingnut Dana Loesch continues to blame Muslims and Obama for the attacks in Libya and Egypt, while defending Romney's insensitive and defamatory anti-Obama attacks about the Libyan bombing incident.

Loesch's senile lie-filled tweets:

President Obama finally remarked upon the attacks on our consulate in Libya -- but was silent on the attack on our embassy in Egypt -- and stressed the importance of not disrespecting religion in his speech, something he's newly concerned about:

While the United States rejects efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, we must all unequivocally oppose the kind of senseless violence that took the lives of these public servants.

It's interesting that only when Islamists riot is Obama concerned for religious respect. I assume that Islam is excluded from what is called his 'war on religion' as he's never before shown any concern for the denigration of other faiths. 
Not only is Obama warring against religion at home, but now with this statement, he's warring against free speech. Islamists don't have the right to not be offended. 

Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood leader, Mohamed Morsi, wants to use the American legal system to suppress the free speech of those who criticize Islam.  
Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi asked the Egyptian embassy in Washington to take legal action in the United States against makers of a film attacking the Muslim Prophet Mohammad, the official state news agency said on Wednesday.
Morsi had requested the mission take "all legal measures", the MENA agency said, without giving further details on what that might involve. 
I'm not quite sure what Morsi's argument is here: is he suggesting that the film somehow defames Islam or will show Islam in a negative light? Because I'm pretty sure that the Islamists burning down consulates and killing Americans do a better job of "defaming" Islam than a film someone makes about the faith. 

The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff today called Terry Jones to tell the pastor to stop promoting the film "Innocence of Muslims" that may or may not exist (there are but two clips on Youtube, screenshot above) and may or may not have been produced by a group of Coptic Christians living in the United States. No one has any idea really, but they are sure of this: a movie that may or may not exist done by some people who can't completely be identified has sparked people who already attacked our Libyan consulate to do it again.  
The Obama administration has called General Martin Dempsey to put a stop to Terry Jones in an effort to quell the Islamist violence. Why Jones? Because he's apparently promoting the film, but not as much as the Islamists talking about it.  
Just when you thought that the Obama administration couldn't bungle up the debacle any more after apologizing, they send a member of the military to tell private citizens to disregard the rule of law, free speech, in our country in favor of the sharia favored by the ruling party in Egypt. Make no mistake, that's exactly what this is: and now Morsi wants to engage in lawfare to further squelch free speech concerning Islam, a tenet of sharia.
It's disturbing that our government has shown they will go right along with it. 

While the Muslim Brotherhood calls for more protests, just months ago the Obama administration had endorsed them in Egypt's elections. 

All of this is more proof that Loesch is a far-right loon who hates Muslims and Obama in order to defend Romney at all costs.

The REAL facts about Romney's Libya and Egypt remarks, from AP:
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The gunfire at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, had barely ceased when Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney seriously mischaracterized what had happened in a statement accusing President Barack Obama of "disgraceful" handling of violence there and at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo.
In fact, neither a statement by the U.S. Embassy in Cairo earlier in the day nor a later statement from Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton offered sympathy for attackers. The statement from the Cairo Embassy had condemned anti-Muslim religious incitement before the embassy walls were breached. In her statement, issued minutes before Romney's, Clinton had offered the administration's first response to the violence in Libya, explicitly condemning the attack there and confirming the death of a State Department official.
"I condemn in the strongest terms the attack on our mission in Benghazi today," Clinton said in a written statement received by The Associated Press at 10:08 p.m. "As we work to secure our personnel and facilities, we have confirmed that one of our State Department officers was killed. We are heartbroken by this terrible loss."
It wasn't until Wednesday morning, when the U.S. confirmed the death of the U.S. ambassador to Libya, that Romney's team recognized the severity of the situation - and that, the night before, it had opened itself up to criticism for politicizing a diplomatic crisis.
