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.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.
