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:

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
