Loesch and her band of trolls attack me for telling the truth about her

Today, I've been getting smeared on Twitter for having the audacity to call Dana Loesch and her band of bullying trolls are going after me for having the courage to blog about Loesch and her lies.

She has smeared gun safety activist and mom Nikki Moungo (@Nikki2U) for being at the gun safety rally at the end of March 2013 and for being featured in the Riverfront Times this week.

The tweet by Moungo got a lot of attention:

Nikki Moungo, a 42-year-old Ballwin resident, is no stranger to gun violence. She is a long-time neighbor and close friend of the family ofMatthew Pellegrini, who was eighteen years old when he was shot and killed in St. Louis. As we've reported, she's been very vocal in the fight for a tough sentence for Pellegrini's killer, supporting the family in and out of the courtroom. 
For these reasons, Moungo was especially surprised and angry to find that her personal gun-control advocacy was at the center of a pro-gun conservative attack that ridiculed her as an out-of-touch suburban mom who doesn't know a thing about a gun violence.
The attacker? St. Louis' very own Dana Loesch. 
Moungo reached out to Daily RFT after she stumbled upon this recent post penned by Loesch, a well-known conservative radio host, on the site Red State.
One of the premises of the piece by Loesch, the cofounder of the St. Louis Tea Party and the subject of our cover story back in 2010, is that the attendees of a Moms Demand Action gun-control rally in St. Louis are completely ignorant about urban violence.
Like other supporters of stricter gun policy, Moungo says she supports common-sense solutions that reduce the risk of gun violence.
Once that violence affected her more directly, "You definitely just get louder," she adds.
That set out the Loeschbot trolls to defend her and smear me and Moungo.

Dana Loesch (@DLoesch), the ringleader:

Eric Elverhoy (@EEElverhoy):

Elverhoy's also a very repulsive troll, and has falsely accused me of being a "homophobe."

Lorraine Yuriar (@thekytikat):

Still childishly smearing me for simply posting (mostly) fetish content on one of my Tumblr blogs, Lorraine?

Craig Lueschow (@CHOWSTL):

First of all, I have never lived with my mom.

Lueschow's been the ugliest of the Danahead trolls smearing me.

My rebuttals to that moron:

Terry Tuttle (@tut2112):

Tuttle, unlike the others, has largely left me alone... until today.


Partisan hack Dana Loesch baselessly smears KSDK and SIUE professor Dr. Morris Taylor

Right-wing noisemaker partisan bastard Dana Loesch slanders terrorism expert Dr. Morris Taylor from SIUE for  having the gonads to suggest that the Boston Marathon bomings are the possibly the works of "right-wing extremists."

From the 04.15.2013 edition of KSDK's NewsChannel 5 at 10:

Loesch's propaganda site:

Hitler was a socialist and McVeigh was an anti-God statist inspired by the Turner Diaries. Is this professor ignorant of history?
I think KSDK, SIUE, and Taylor owe apologies for impugning half of KSDK’s viewership last night.

No, Dana, KSDK did NOT smear conservatives as you would like to allege. Also, Hitler was NOT anywhere near a "socialist", and McVeigh was a far-right loon.


Anti-Choice RedState.com contributor Loesch advocates for even tougher anti-abortion restrictions

Craven anti-reproductive choice psychopath Dana Loesch is using the Kermit Gosnell story to pro-choicers and abortion in general.

The real facts about the Kermit Gosnell story, via The Nation's Katha Pollitt:

Blood-spattered floors. Cat feces. Broken equipment. A 15-year-old giving anesthesia. Two women dead, countless more maimed and injured. Third-trimester fetuses delivered alive whose spines were then severed by the doctor. This was the Women’s Medical Society in West Philadelphia. This is what illegal abortion looks like. 

That’s right. Illegal abortion. A great deal has been written about Dr. Kermit Gosnell and the shocking conditions and practices at his facility, which was closed last March after a drug raid, and is back in the news because a grand jury has indicted him and nine employees for murder in the deaths of one woman and seven infants. There have been many calls for further restrictions on abortion, much revulsion expressed at post-viability abortions, much blame cast on prochoicers for supposedly doing nothing to stop him. But it has not been pointed out often enough that what Dr. Gosnell was doing was illegal in Pennsylvania. It is not legal to perform abortions after twenty-four weeks. It is not legal to slit the necks of born-alive fetuses at any age, much less at thirty weeks or even more. It is not legal for untrained, unlicensed employees to perform medical procedures. 

Now prochoicers are being blamed for this rogue operator. The grand jury report suggests that Tom Ridge, Republican governor from 1995 to 2001, discontinued inspections because prochoicers claimed they were too burdensome. The ones I talked to were skeptical. “We never lobbied against inspection,” Carol Tracy of the Women’s Law Project, which represents clinics in Pennsylvania, told me by phone. She pointed out that under Ridge’s Democratic predecessor, Bob Casey, who was famously opposed to legal abortion, Gosnell’s clinic was inspected three times, and each time serious problems were found. Nothing was done. Perhaps it’s relevant that Gosnell’s patients were poor, many of them immigrants—like 41-year-old Karnamaya Mongar from Nepal, with whose murder Gosnell has been charged—who may not even have known that safe and legal abortion is available here. 
 Irin Carmon at Salon debunks the "it's being under-covered prior to this week" meme:

This week, the right wing has been working the refs, demanding to know why the press has been allegedly silent on the trial of Kermit Gosnell, the Philadelphia doctor who allegedly committed horrific acts against his patients with impunity for years. Fox News’ Kristen Powers kicked it off with an op-ed in USA Today, claiming, “The deafening silence of too much of the media, once a force for justice in America, is a disgrace.” Michelle Malkin has helped spearhead a Twitter campaign. Breitbart.com calls it “a full-blown, coordinated blackout throughout the entire national media.”   

If you’ve never heard of the Gosnell story, it’s not because of a coverup by the liberal mainstream media. It’s probably because you failed to pay attention to the copious coverage among pro-choice and feminist journalists, as well as the big news organizations, when the news first broke in 2011. There would be something rich, if it weren’t so infuriating, about these (uniformly male, as it happens) reporters and commentators scrambling to break open this shocking untold story. You know, the one that was written about herehereand here, to name some disparate sources.

On the other hand, Loesch at RedState.com was using the Gosnell story as an excuse to drum up support for even tougher abortion restrictions and/or outright bans of the practice:
We need sensible abortion control. Think of how many classrooms of children lost their lives at the hands of Gosnell. The difference between Gosnell and some other abortionists is that Gosnell was caught. Gosnell didn’t use an AR-15 to snuff out the lives of these live infants. He assaulted them with scissors. Too many to count. There is a photo of one child (via the grand jury testimony) stuffed into a shoebox like a pet hamster. His little legs were too big so they hung out over the sides. Just one life.  
Call your lawmaker today. It’s time for common sense abortion control.
