On The Kelly File, Phony "Christian" Dana Loesch falsely smears Jessica Ehrlich as an "anti-Christian Bigot"

On tonight's edition of The Kelly File hosted by substitute host Martha MacCallum on Fixed Noise, phony "Christian" conservative hack Dana Loesch insulted the show's other guest Jessica Ehrlich by calling her an "anti-Christian bigot" for opposing the homophobia and other far-right screeds that David and Jason Benham espouse. 

Loesch defended the fired by HGTV Benham Brothers' bigoted homophobic comments by stating "I don't find Christian views to be political."

Ehrlich correctly called out Loesch's BS bunk arguments by saying that "they cloaked their political views as Biblical."

Further in the interview, Loesch baselessly claimed that "being pro-choice and pro-homosexuality doesn't make you a Christian."

To debunk Dana's faulty logic on that statement, yes, you can be pro-choice and pro-LGBT rights and still be a Christian in good standing.

From the 05.16.2014 edition of FNC's The Kelly File:

Transcript, via Progressives Today:
Jessica Ehrlich: Here you have two attention-seeking, reality series wannabes, who are political activists, who have an extreme agenda. And who are trying to cloak this sort of religious freedom characterization… 
Dana Loesch: I just don’t understand the anti-Christian bigotry. The world’s big enough for us all, don’t you think? 
Ehrlich: There is no anti-Christian bigotry here. They cloaked their political views… 
Loesch: I don’t find Christian views to be political. 
Ehrlich: These are not Christian views. 
Loesch: It’s not Christian views to talk about Biblical principles?… What about the Bible do you find extreme? 
Ehrlich: They are anti-abortion and anti-homosexuality. 
Loesch: Using your logic, Jessica, then how does that not make you anti-Christian?… Jessica, you learn more when you keep your mouth shut. 
Ehrlich: You don’t need to get rude about this. 
Loesch: If we’re going to have a discussion on rudeness, let’s start with your name-calling and your smearing of these brothers just because you are an anti-Christian bigot.
Her own site makes excuses for defending the Benhams:
The story of the David and Jason Benham moved me perhaps because it is the most recent in a string of stories this year where people of faith or of different opinion are attacked; also maybe because they seem like sincere people of faith. The SunTrust story broke while I was on air, inspiring this rant. Tonight I appeared on the “Kelly File” with excellent guest host Martha MacCallum to debate the issue a bit with a democratic strategist named Jessica Ehrlich. My intention was to have a civil discourse, where perhaps we disagree, but civil nonetheless, but find common ground on this being America and there is room for all, faith-based or not. I quickly found that this was not to be the case. Ms. Ehrlich was set upon castigating these brothers for their faith. It wasn’t enough for Ms. Ehrlich that neither David nor Jason have ever expressed anything either in voice or otherwise that would classify, it was “hatred” so long as the brothers didn’t endorse in what they themselves simply disagree. It wasn’t enough for Ms. Ehrlich that the Benham brothers remained committed, on their own time and their own dime, to the six families whose homes they were flipping for their now-cancelled HGTV program — they had failed to endorse a lifestyle outside of their Biblical belief set. Ms. Ehrlich called them hateful “anti-homosexuals,” “extremists,” among other things, to which I asked her if her simple disagreement with David and Jason Benham’s lifestyle then would classify her as an “anti-Christian bigot.” It’s the same logic. She didn’t like the measure she uses to be used against herself.
I have friends and members of my own family who are gay, I have friends and family members who believe whole-heartedly that abortion is fantastic, and magically, we still all get along. I am not hurt if they do not share my beliefs no more than they are hurt that I do not share theirs. I care about these people, which is why I would never go out of my way to hurt them, especially over what we believe. It’s why it floors me that people like Ms. Ehrlich, who I’m sure prides herself on “equality” and compassion, would go out of her way to malign the characters of two men whose only crime seems to be that they are Christians. Perhaps she was not raised in a diverse environment and didn’t learn to coexist with people who think differently than she, but it’s about time she learned.
Dana, it's about time you learn to quit being a rude bully to people who disagree with your line of thought.

Typical Loesch being a fake "Christian" right-wing asshole. Mrs. Ehrlich's the REAL Christian in this discussion, NOT you or the Benhams.

On today's edition of The Dana Show, Loesch was outraged by SunTrust's decision to temporarily suspend their accounts (which later got reinstated) by whining about "#progressiveprivilege." She also smeared Hillary Clinton, Shannon Watts, Elizabeth Warren, birth control, Common Core, Michael Sam, and liberals/progressives in general in that rant.

Progressives Today's Kyle Olson and Jim Hoft with Andrew Marcus join Dana Loesch on TheBlazeTV's Dana for lies and smears against the 2014 White Privilege Conference

Newly formed right-wing propaganda site Progressives Today co-founders Jim Hoft (The Gateway Pundit's primary blogger and founder) and Kyle Olson (founder of far-right anti-public schools/anti-unions site EAGnews.org), along with Andrew Marcus, joined host Dana Loesch on her self-titled TheBlazeTV show to spew falsehoods about progressives and liberals regarding the 2014 White Privilege Conference and defending the Tea Party

From the 05.09.2014 edition of TheBlazeTV's Dana:

The White Privilege Conference attendees correctly stated that the Tea Party Movement breeds racism.

Wisconsin State Journal's Doug Erickson on the White Privilege Conference held in Madison, Wisconsin:
The gathering draws ridicule and outrage from some, especially political conservatives, who question the need for it and the amount of tax money helping to stage it. Among the two dozen co-hosts of this year’s conference are Madison Area Technical College, UW-Madison and the city of Madison’s Department of Civil Rights. Most co-hosts are paying a fee between $500 and $3,000, according to organizers, although UW-Madison is kicking in $5,000.
Dave Blaska, a former Dane County Board member, wrote in a recent blog for In Business magazine that the conference sends the message that white people are the problem.
“Madison’s ruling white liberals are so afraid to be called racist that they refrain from criticizing destructive behaviors,” he wrote. “Instead, they double down on the race card, blaming unconscious, subliminal racism.”
Conservative Madison radio talk show host Vicki McKenna told her listeners, “I object to one penny of my money being used to support this.”
The conference routinely triggers “threatening and ugly emails,” Moore said, often from white supremacists.
So far, none of the emails this year has been directly threatening, said Lt. Dave McCaw of the Madison Police Department, but the department will continue to monitor social media in the days leading up to the conference, as it does prior to any large gathering, he said.
At this point, McCaw said there appears to be no need for off-duty police at the event, though on-duty officers will give the conference extra attention.
Opposition is not uncommon, Moore said. Members of the St. Louis-based Council of Conservative Citizens protested the 2011 conference in Minneapolis. The group did not return phone calls. A recent post on its website called the Madison conference “extremist” and said “Wisconsin taxpayers are being forced to pay for the entire thing.”
UPDATED (05.10.2014, 7:30PM CDT):
Wonkette has more on Hoft, Olson, and Marcus appearing on Dana to spew lies about the White Privilege Conference.
Rebecca Schoenkopf at Wonkette:
Luckily, Jim Hoft and his Aryan stud partner, Kyle Olson (who judging from the video has aged a bit into a not as Aryan not a stud), very BRAVELY sent BRAVE people undercover to the 15th annual White Privilege conference, where we imagine they got told to check their privilege a LOT. It has pretty much gotten to the point where you can’t try on a pair of shoes without someone telling you that only because you are privileged were you able to ignore the racist history of Thom McCan. (Note: to our knowledge there is no racist history to Thom McCan. Which is JUST WHAT WHITEY WOULD SAY!) 

A lady says Obama is just a black face in the master’s house, which is the closest they get to anything that could possibly be construed as offensive, and even then you really have to squint and turn your phone sideways. Mostly they’re dismayed that anyone could think America has systemic, entrenched racism, and that the Tea Party is racist, and that these terrible black people (and SO-CALLED and DEFINITELY self-loathing WHITE ‘ALLIES’) might want to teach your children that in fact slavery wasn’t that awesome. They might even have to read The Invisible Backpack. (Except some people are mad that The Invisible Backpack was written by a white woman, because she was “casually appropriating the pain of black people,” because sometimes with Critical Race Theory you will always lose no matter what, especially Critical Race Theory as practiced by people on Twitter.)


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.
