Loesch tastelessly smears Missouri State Rep. Stacey Newman (D) for her tweet about Benghazi

Today, Tea Party Pundit Dana Loesch has smeared Democratic State Rep. Stacey Newman yet again, this time for mentioning about Benghazi, a tragic event in which 4 Americans were killed on September 12th, 2012, that the righties like Loesch have decided to exploit for political gain in order to  attack 2016 Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and by extension, the Democratic Party.

Here's her tweet that got the right all hopping mad:

Her [Loesch's] own site smeared Newman in a derogatory manner:
I interviewed Charles Woods, father of US Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, one of the four lives lost during the Benghazi terror attack. He’s a grieving father still searching for answers. Meanwhile, Democrats call the attack a “pseudo scandal” and crack jokes like this on Twitter. Keep it classy, Stacey Newman.
Hey Dana, the Democrats are right to call the conservatives' reaction to Benghazi a phony scandal. 

She trotted in an attack on Wendy Davis, too. 

NO, Speaker Jones should NOT censure Rep. Newman at all. If he did that, then it'll be a partisan witchhunt. 

KC Star's Barb Shelly and Stacey Newman were NOT "mocking 4 dead Americans in Benghazi," but the right-wing's overreaction to Benghazi.

Democrats are NOT "trivializing" the deaths of 4 Americans at Benghazi in 2012.

The Riverfront Times on Newman's Benghazi comments:

St. Louis County's Democratic State Representative Stacey Newman made a joke about Benghazi. It hasn't gone over too well.
Newman went on Twitter Tuesday night and joked about an issue that has been a staple of Republican concerns since September 2012, when four Americans were killed in the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya, in what has since been determined as an intelligence failure. Since the tragic event partisan politics have raged, with Republicans accusing the Obama administration of covering up the details of the event, and Democrats accusing Republicans and conservative media outlets of exploiting a tragic accident for political gain.

No doubt Newman was joking about what has been seen as an exaggerated reaction to the Benghazi incident by the conservative right. And comedians have been joking about this for quite a while, mostly by making fun of the apparent hypocrisy involving the right's current outrage over an alleged cover-up during the Obama administration that killed four Americans versus the right's lack of outrage over the cover-up during the George W. Bush administration that killed more than 4,000 Americans and nearly 200,000 Iraqis.

Unlike Loesch, Twitchy, and the right-wing media morons, Newman is telling the truth about Benghazi and how the right's exploiting it.
