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.


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.


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.

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests? 

Would you feel safe if your child attended a University that allowed pro-Hamas protests?

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
