Dana Loesch still making misleading attacks on Salazar and Democrats

Last night on Dana Busted, I had broken the news that Dana Loesch was flagrantly lying about Colorado State Rep. Joe Salazar (D), and even accused him and his party of starting a "war on women.

For the 2nd day in a row, Loesch took to her Twitter account (@DLoesch) to make false accusations about Salazar, gun safety advocates, and Democrats:

Loesch (and other wingnuts) defended the EXTREMELY SEXIST and OFFENSIVE #LiberalTips2Avoid Rape hashtag on Twitter.

Mother Jones' Asawin Suebsaeng has more on on that offensive hashtag::

There's this new hashtag #LiberalTips2AvoidRape that's now on its second day of trending on Twitter: A really, really great expression of our shared humanity, and of the possibilities of feel-good, thoughtful conservative satire... this is not:

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.  
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 voilĂ ! 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.

No, Dana, the Colorado House Democrats are NOT waging a "War On Women."

Her typical insults hurled at liberals/progressives.

Stop lying, Dana! YOU kept defending Akin's remarks (and later Mourdock's).

Dana, Democratic men are NOT "disenfranchising" women. GTFO with that lie!

Evan McMorris-Santoro at TPM has the truth on how the Salazar debacle unfolded:

Conservatives are calling a Colorado legislator the Democratic Todd Akin after he wandered into a discussion about rape while debating a gun control bill last week on the state House floor. 
State Rep. Joe Salazar (D), a first-term lawmaker, spoke up during a debate Friday over a bill that would ban concealed weapons from college campuses in Colorado. Gun rights advocates have pushed for more concealed carry permits on campuses in the years since the Virginia Tech shooting. In an apparent attempt to respond to concerns that the proposed law would leave women defenseless against rapists on campus, Salazar opined that fearful women may shoot first and ask questions later, putting men at risk.
“It’s why we have call boxes, it’s why we have safe zones, it’s why we have the whistles. Because you just don’t know who you’re gonna be shooting at,” Salazar said, according to a transcript of his remarks published by the Denver Post. “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 a round at somebody.” 
Conservatives and gun rights activists pounced. 
But a clip of Salazar during the floor debate went viral on the conservative twitterscape as gun rights activists piled on. Akin’s name was raised more than once.

Conservative activists have reached yet another new low, folks…they managed to get the hashtag #LiberalTips2AvoidRape to become a trending topic on Twitter and made numerous highly offensive remarks about rape.  
Rape is an evil, disgusting act, and it’s not funny to make jokes about rape.
