Dana Loesch makes excuses to defend domestic terrorist Cliven Bundy's racist remarks

When far-right domestic terrorist Cliven Bundy made his awful racially tinged remarks about African-Americans, far-right fringe radio host Dana Loesch made excuses to DEFEND Bundy's racist bullshit. She smeared Politico writer Jonathan Topaz for telling the truth about Bundy's racism.

The New York Times' Adam Nagourney:
He said he would continue holding a daily news conference; on Saturday, it drew one reporter and one photographer, so Mr. Bundy used the time to officiate at what was in effect a town meeting with supporters, discussing, in a long, loping discourse, the prevalence of abortion, the abuses of welfare and his views on race. 
“I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro,” he said. Mr. Bundy recalled driving past a public-housing project in North Las Vegas, “and in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids — and there is always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch — they didn’t have nothing to do. They didn’t have nothing for their kids to do. They didn’t have nothing for their young girls to do. 
“And because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do?” he asked. “They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn’t get no more freedom. They got less freedom.”

Jonathan Topaz at Politico:
Loesch said that Bundy’s comments might have been aimed at “decrying what big government has done to the black family,” as opposed to necessarily being racist remarks. She said the Bundy affair is primarily about “government overreach.”
“If Bundy is a racist, that is awful,” she wrote, “but what exactly does that have to do with the [Bureau of Land Management]? I’ve been saying for weeks that this isn’t about one rancher. It’s about government overreach.”
Loesch concluded by suggesting that liberals are trying to distract from government overreach by focusing the story exclusively on Bundy.
Former Mediaite Contributor Tommy Christopher at The Daily Banter:
Dana Loesch, though, isn’t so sure. Faced with Bundy’s remarks, the conservative media powerhouse rushed to keyboard to comment. She wrote “I was alerted to this story this evening in the NYT on rancher Cliven Bundy which featured a quote I was told was racist, and therefor I should apologize for ever criticizing the Bureau of Land Management’s handling of this and other situations,” and then blockquoted the Timespiece. Granting that the quote is “odd” and that it “sounds” racist, Loesch went on to explain that even if the guy didn’t express himself “perfectly,” he kinda had a point (emphasis mine): 
A few things. First, to take the quote at face value it’s odd and sounds offensive. You’re talking about government overreach and you go into this story? Secondly, I hope no one is surprised that an old man rancher isn’t media trained to express himself perfectly. He seems to be decrying what big government has done to the black family — which big government has negatively affected not just the black family, but all families regardless of ethnicity — so perhaps he included that in his remarks against big government? 
In Loesch’s defense, and I mean this sincerely, what Bundy said is the kind of thing that mainstream Republicans say all the time, it is mainstream Republican thought. The only difference is they don’t usually use the word “Negro,” or something close. Watching them scramble to get away from the Bundy grenade is comical, because they are the ones who armed it and pulled the pin.

Loesch has defended Cliven Bundy repeatedly over the past two weeks.

More excuse-making for Bundy's racism by her on Twitter:

She takes a shot at MMFA, one of her arch-nemeses.

You're lying, Dana! You DID defend his racist remark.


Dana Loesch defends fringe terrorist Cliven Bundy

Tea Party activist Dana Loesch has been defending far-right domestic terrorist Cliven Bundy by smearing Senator Harry Reid (D-NV).

Loesch's fact-free smear of Reid:
The tortoise wasn’t of concern when Harry Reid worked BLM to literally change the boundaries of the tortoise’s habitat to accommodate the development of his top donor, Harvey Whittemore. Whittemore was convicted of illegal campaign contributions to Senator ReidReid’s former senior adviser is now the head of BLM. Reid is accused of using the new BLM chief as a puppet to control Nevada land (already over 84% of which is owned by the federal government) and pay back special interests. BLM has proven that they’ve a situational concern for the desert tortoise as they’ve had no problem waiving their rules concerning wind or solar power development. Clearly these developments have vastly affected a tortoise habitat more than a century-old, quasi-homesteading grazing area. If only Clive Bundy were a big Reid donor.

Her twitter posts on #BundyRanch:

The real facts about Bundy, which Loesch neglects to tell, are written by the SPLC.

SPLC's Hatewatch:
The core of the dispute is Cliven Bundy’s ongoing claim to the right to graze his cattle on a sensitive piece of southern Nevada’s Mojave Desert known as Gold Butte. Bundy’s family had grazed cattle in the area for generations, but in 1993 Cliven Bundy stopped paying his fees on the land, claiming that the United States government was not the legitimate landlord.
In 2013, a federal judge enjoined him from continuing to graze his cattle on the federal lands, an order he has studiously ignored. So this week, federal authorities moved into the area and began sweeping up Bundy’s trespassing cattle.
Bundy threatened a “range war” if Bureau of Land Management agents took custody of his stock, calling them “cattle thieves.” But, initially at least, the threats appeared to fizzle as the roundup of Bundy’s cattle proceeded apace, accompanied by a heavy law enforcement presence at the scene, while Bundy sputtered helplessly on the sideline. On Sunday, another adult son, 37-year-old David Bundy, was arrested after getting into a confrontation with the federal officers; afterwards, Bundy and his compatriots described for reporters their alleged ordeal the hands of federal officers. 
BLM officials, meanwhile, defend the crackdown on Bundy’s activities by noting that he is the only rancher in the region who refuses to acknowledge or heed the federal permit system for grazing rights. “Cattle have been in trespass on public lands in southern Nevada for more than two decades. This is unfair to the thousands of other ranchers who graze livestock in compliance with federal laws and regulations throughout the West,” the BLM website noted.

Yesterday on The Dana Show, Loesch and Bundy used their segment to push more conspiracy theories, including the claim that "they're throwing little old ladies on the ground and siccing dogs on them."

From the 04.10.2014 edition of KFTK/Radio America's The Dana Show:

On The Kelly FileLoesch used the story to gin up anti-immigrant racist paranoia. The other guest, Lis Wiehl (who is nowhere near a liberal at all), correctly defends the BLM's actions against Bundy.

Ok, we understand that Loesch has an opinion about Bundy, but what does this have to do with immigration and people being here “illegally?” In fact, why did Loesch feel she had to bring up such stale (and racist, yeah, racist) ignorant images of those “illegals.” You really wonder why people like Loesch don’t get it and never will? It’s becoming so par for the course, even us calling her out will now be seen as 1) “leftist” 2) “anti-American” 3) “criminal” 4) “amnesty-loving” or 5) “sexist.” Or wait, we forgot: 6) “Marxist” and 7) “Reconquista-loving.” Just you watch. The “go back to Mexico” tweets from her followers will hit us soon.

Anti-choice shitstain Dana Loesch rudely mocks #rally4MOwomen attendees

Today, crass anti-choice extremist shitstain Dana Loesch is bullying #Rally4MOWomen attendees for simply exercising their 1st Amendment right to express their opinions on how extreme anti-abortion policies being proposed are affecting Missouri women.

Typical from someone who is a habitual disgrace to women in this country.

Michelle Malkin's propaganda hive Twitchy piles on, which Loesch retweeted:

You, Dana, are an ignorant bully.

It's people like you that want to take away the right to make the choice to have an abortion.

Loesch on FNC's The Kelly File: "The Gender Pay Gap is a 'myth'"

Last night on Fixed Noise's The Kelly File, Dana Loesch went on and falsely said that the gender pay gap is a "myth." Unfortunately for serial liars Kelly and Loesch, the gender pay gap is real and does exist.

Thankfully, solid progressive Eboni Williams slapped down Loesch and Kelly's inane arguments.

The Raw Story's David Ferguson:
Loesch complained that Democrats see people as Democrats first and don’t “celebrate women.”
“If you’re a progressive, ‘Democrat’ comes before your sex,” she fumed. “If you’re a Democrat or you’re a progressive, that is honored above your sex.” 
Loesch said that now-ex-Mayor Bob Filner (D) of San Diego, CA is an example of how progressives treat women, in spite of the fact that he was driven from office in disgrace when his assaults on women became public knowledge. 
Guest Eboni Williams asserted that dividing women into “liberal” and “conservative” camps is superficial and divisive and does not address the concerns that all women share. 
“I think we all want equal pay for equal work for women,” said Williams. “We all want these policy goals that are much more the same than they are different.”
“Yeah, the equal pay for equal myth [sic],” said Loesch. “Can we talk about things that are in reality and not something based upon a bunk study?”
No, Dana, Bob Filner's sexual assaults on women are NOT accurate examples of how progressives/liberals treat women.

NRA mouthpiece Dana Loesch tastelessly smears daughter of slain Sandy Hook principal

Last night, in reaction to the Fort Hood shooting (the same place where a much more tragic version of such a tragedy occurred back in November 2009), deranged gun nut and NRA mouthpiece propagandist Dana Loesch tastelessly smeared Cristina Hassinger (@chass63), the daughter of slain Sandy Hook Elementary School principal Dawn Hochsprung, for calling out Loesch's repeated harassment of Moms Demand Action For Gun Sense In America founder Shannon Watts.

TBogg at The Raw Story has the story on Loesch's insensitive tweets directed at Hassinger:

Our winner for the evening turned out to be radio screech weasel, pee-er on dead people, and thing-that-you-would-get-if-Michelle-Malkin-and-Sarah-Palin-had-a-bile-child, Dana Loesch,who made Pat Dollard look positively artful in his Twitter Tourettes.
Christina Hassinger criticized Loesch on Twitter for attacking Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America founder Shannon Watts. Loesch did not like this, no sireee bob. However, the witty repartee did not go well for Dana:Screen Shot 2014-04-02 at 11.20.22 PMWhoopsie-doodle!
Of course, Dana had a chance to respond with, say: ” Oh wow, so sorry about you mother, you have my deepest sympathies after she died trying to save a bunch of children who are close in age to mine. God bless”…
That would be  a sign of weakness that is reserved for people who aren’t  soul dead grifters pitching red meat stupidity to lowest-common-denominator  mouth-breathers who spend the day  listening  to hate talk radio, brought to you by reverse mortgages come-ons and male catheter come hithers.
Here’s your chance, Dana: be a human being, be a stand-up person, someone your kids could be proud of…Screen Shot 2014-04-02 at 11.31.28 PMOhhhh. So close.
When I pointed out on the Twitter machine (and I should note that both Dana and her sad hipster wanna-be husband both block me on Twitter, so she had to go looking for it) that she was being kind of a dick, well, guess who the real victim is now?  Go on ….. guess. I dare you…Screen Shot 2014-04-02 at 11.36.47 PMSTOP TWITTER YELLING AT DANA LOESCH , PEOPLE!

Moms Demand Action founder Watts correctly calls out Loesch for being a shill for the gun manufacturers:
