(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.
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…
Oh look, the Cougar Coalition for Gun Control's latest ad was rated bullshit: http://t.co/Ybu9uciOcP— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) August 28, 2013
…Robert offered the following digesting (and unwanted) response:
@DLoesch I know you would look lovely with thigh high stockings and would love to have a brother give to you up the ass. Wouldn't you?— Pascal Robert (@probert06) August 28, 2013
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?
Coincidence? Progressive men who regularly threaten conservative women with rape are also anti-gun.— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) August 28, 2013
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.
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.
Ladies, do not tolerate progressive males to threaten you into silence over your God given right to political diversity. Ever.— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) August 28, 2013
It's important to stand by the ones who are brave enough to keep speaking out.
I appreciate you all who speak out against these morons. You show other women that if they take heat over free opinion, they have allies.— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) August 28, 2013
