Ironic? Progressive blogger issues rape threat to Dana Loesch on Twitter after pro-2nd Amendment tweet

(Warning: Graphic language)

Progressives love to accuse conservatives of wanting not caring about or defending women's issues. The thing is, when it actually comes to defending an individual, progressives are no where to be found if it isn't a situation that fits their agenda — in fact, they're often the aggressor against conservative women.

Dana Loesch is often the receiving end of violent threats, harassment, and attacks from progressive men. Rarely are these individuals called out by their own side. Last night was just one more example.

Progressive Huffington Post blogger Pascal Robert — known online as "THOUGHT MERCHANT" — launched a sexually graphic and despicable attack against conservative radio host and friend of TheBlaze Dana Loesch last night on Twitter.

Why?

Simply because Dana has a different opinion that he does on Second Amendment rights.

After tweeting an article from Politifact debunking an anti-gun ad…

…Robert offered the following digesting (and unwanted) response:

Is this how the left is fighting their "war on women"? By essentially throwing around rape threats on Twitter? Where are all of the progressives who were up in arms after Sandra Fluke was referred to as a "slut" on radio?

Not to mention, it's hard not to point out the blatant irony of a progressive issuing violent threats against a woman while opposing her right to bear arms. Can you blame Dana for wanting the be able to defend herself when she receives tweets like this on a regular basis?

And more importantly, why is Huffington Post providing this type of individual with a public platform? Is this the kind of man they want representing the kind of individuals that they hire?

"How can somebody who writes for the Huffington Post get away with that?" Glenn asked.

"Well, he shouldn't," Pat answered. "He shouldn't be writing for the Huffington Post anymore. That's for sure."

"I would fire somebody that would do that.  If you were tweeting that to some woman that you disagreed with, I'd fire you," Glenn added.

Pat promptly pointed out that if Glenn didn't fire someone who did that, he'd be excoriated…by the Huffington Post.

Ironic?

Hardly. This is the hypocrisy we've come to expect from the progressive left's "do as I say, not as I do" attitude.

Not to say that no one came to Dana's defense last night — some did. And because of it they were on the receiving end of this dirtbag's vile tweets as well.

You can see the entire exchange on Dana's Storify page HERE.

The double standards from the left when it comes to women's issues are unbelievable. But it's exchanges like this that highlight how most of them couldn't care less about women at all, they only care about their agenda. If you have a public voice that can influence the opposing side, they want to isolate you so you don't speak out.

Stu summed it up best this morning when he said, "the problem is Dana, as a woman, is part of the "war on women" — she's leading the "war on women" pretty much. So I think it's okay to them then, right?"

Sadly, those are the standards the media goes by these days. But the new media, lead by individuals like Dana Loesch have no plans to sit down or shut up.

It's important to stand by the ones who are brave enough to keep speaking out.

Watch Glenn's response below:

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
