Dana Loesch's week of rampant lies

Last week, prominent far-right fringe voice Dana Loesch has been in a heap of lies, ranging from her rampant Islamophobia by the demonization of Huma Abedin to declaring a CONSERVATIVE Christian caller who criticized Chick-Fil-A's anti-LGBTQ polices a "phony Christian." Also, on ABC's This Week, Loesch lied her ass off to the American people.

Notorious Islamophobic far-right radio host Dana Loesch is stepping up to the plate to make Pamela Geller, Brigitte Gabriel, Frank Gaffney, and the Islamophobia Lobby happy by demonizing Huma Abedin, a Deputy Chief of Staff and aide to Secretary of State (and possible 2016 Presidential contender) Hillary Clinton.   
At least two prominent CNN personalities (Wolf Blitzer and Anderson Cooper) have grilled Michele Bachmann's baseless conspiracy theory of tying AbedinKeith EllisonGrover Norquist, and other Muslims to the Muslim Brotherhood. 
Nevertheless, TeaNN contributor Loesch repeated the false claim by Bachmann without challenge  on her radio show.


From the 07.19.2012 edition of KFTK's The Dana Show:



Next up, at last Thursday's FreePAC, with Glenn Beck and a few other prominent Conservatives, she stated that "the media is supposed to be our watchdog, not Obama's lap dog."



Guess what, Dana, the mainstream media is the lap dog of the 1% corporatists and NOT Obama or the Democrats.

Next up is Loesch's berating of a Christian conservative caller who opposed Chick-Fil-A's anti-LGBTQ policies on The Dana Show.
From the 07.24.2012 edition of KFTK's The Dana Show:


And lastly, she went on ABC's This Week to tell more grade-A lies to the national viewing audience.
From the 07.29.2012 edition of ABC's This Week:



ABC again invited CNN contributor and conservative pundit Dana Loesch to be part of its This Week roundtable, even though she has promoted a conspiracy theory that her CNN co-workers described as "McCarthy-like."
On her radio show earlier this week, Loesch promoted the fringe idea that Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin "is essentially a member of the female version of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Muslim Sisterhood." The comment was the subject of a letter circulated by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) attacking Abedin. 
Similarly, Loesch attacked a caller to her show this week who said she opposed Chick-Fil-A management's stance against gay marriage, telling her that "I know you hate Christ." Loesch claimed that as a supporter of marriage equality, the woman could not be a Christian. Polls over the last decades have shown declining opposition to same-sex marriage among evangelicals, and among Americans in general. 
But Loesch nevertheless repeated the claim on This Week, saying, "obviously the CEO is a Christian, people are shocked that he's for traditional marriage? It just doesn't make sense to me."


She also repeated Fixed Noise's false claim that "Obama is harming small businesses."

Dana Loesch defends Bachmann's Islamophobic witchhunt against Huma Abedin

Notorious Islamophobic far-right radio host Dana Loesch is stepping up to the plate to make Pamela Geller, Brigitte Gabriel, Frank Gaffney, and the Islamophobia Lobby happy by demonizing Huma Abedin, a Deputy Chief of Staff and aide to Secretary of State (and possible 2016 Presidential contender) Hillary Clinton.


At least two prominent CNN personalities (Wolf Blitzer and Anderson Cooper) have grilled Michele Bachmann's baseless conspiracy theory of tying AbedinKeith EllisonGrover Norquist, and other Muslims to the Muslim Brotherhood. 


Nevertheless, TeaNN contributor Loesch repeated the false claim by Bachmann without challenge  on her radio show.


Last week, CNN contributor Dana Loesch claimed a State Department official has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood -- even as her CNN co-workers Wolf Blitzer and Anderson Cooper dismissed such charges as "McCarthy-like."



Loesch discussed Bachmann's Brotherhood infiltration theory with anti-Islam activist Brigitte Gabriel. When Gabriel said that it was "about time our government begins an investigation into the infiltration of the Muslim Brotherhood into our government," Loesch agreed, saying, "Absolutely," then added:

LOESCH: Looking especially at how some of our foreign policy has been handled, Hillary Clinton essentially siding with the Muslim Brotherhood candidate in Egypt, and then it was discovered that her top aide -- Huma Abedin -- is essentially a member of the female version of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Muslim Sisterhood. All of this -- it seems enough to me to pose questions as to why our government is becoming so close with a group that has been so hostile to the United States, has fought against the United States, has sided with terrorists, and is a very oppressive regime that believes in Sharia law.



From the 07.19.2012 edition of KFTK's The Dana Show:


Loesch then took her defense of Bachmann to Big Journalism.

The Republican establishment has long kept Michele Bachmann at arm's length and the exploitation of her simple inquiry into foreign policy matters (along with Louie Gohmert, Tom Rooney, Trent Franks, and Lynn Westmorland) is just another example. What's worse: they seem eager to work in tandem with the media to help push along the overdramatic and purposeful mischaracterization of the group's inquiry -- and set their sights specifically on Bachmann. 
The best way to assuage the congressional members' questions about Muslim Brotherhood infiltration is, of course, to prove that they are irrevocably without merit, which isn't done by attacking Bachmann ad hominem and challenging her character. Unfortunately, that's not the route the DC establishment chose.


At least a few high-level Republicans have stuck up for Abedin, such as Arizona Senator and 2008 GOP Presidential Candidate John McCain, Speaker John Boehner, and surprisingly, Congresscritter Jim Sensenbrenner.

Discredited fraudster J. Christian Adams visits The Dana Show

Yesterday on KFTK's The Dana Show, regular guest and voter suppression advocate J. Christian Adams attacked Holder for doing the right thing, which is to stop Texas's horrible voter suppression law from taking effect. And of course Loesch is a vehement supporter of "Voter ID," along with a host of other far-right causes.


From the 07.11.2012 edition of KFTK's The Dana Show:



Highlights:

  • They whined about Republican-favored redistricting isn't stopping their voter suppression efforts. (approx. 2:35)
  • Adams and Loesch both declared that if Texas's law is struck down, then it will put the laws on voter suppression closer to oblivion. (approx. 4:20)
  • Loesch falsely claims that True The Vote, a spin-off of King Street Patriots, monitor elections honestly. They don't. (approx. 5:31)
  • Adams misleading states that the DOJ is "facilitating lawless behavior in our polling places." (approx. 7:09)


Partial Transcript:
LOESCH: "Eric Holder currently has in his sights Texas trying to invoke their 10th Amendment rights to uphold 'voter integrity' in their state. According to J. Christian Adams at Pajamas Media, the Texas Voter ID law is on life support."[...]J. CHRISTIAN ADAMS: "Well, the latest is that the trial is still going on. Tthe Justice Department actually put up a witness this morning to testify that Governor Perry is a 'fascist.'" LOESCH: "So if the Department of Justice scores a win here in Texas, and they prevent them from requiring photo ID in order to safeguard the votes of those casting them. This is, to me, going to set a precedent that is going to endanger the 10th Amendment powers of the other states that are currently in this same tussle with the DOJ."
ADAMS: "Well, you're exactly right. In the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which was amended in 2006 to essentially give enormous federal power over state election decisions."
[...]
"The same laws designed to help Republicans with redistricting is causing voter integrity efforts across the country to be attacked by the Justice Department. They're gonna kill Texas's Voter ID law, probably kill South Carolina's Voter ID law, Mississippi and Alabama are trembling. So what you have is heading into the election situation where Eric Holder is using a weapon given to him by Republicans in 2006 undermining election integrity."LOESCH: And this just underscores the huge point that even if we have Republicans in office passing legislation where you give government that much oversight, you can't be guaranteed that you're going to always have good people in office. You should never want someone else to have that kind of power over voting and states' rights anyway."ADAMS: "You're exactly right, Dana, this is part of a bigger problem. Republicans wanted to tend to disengage on racial issues, on election issues, on anything that the NAACP beats its drum about."
