Ever since Jared Loughner went all John Hinckley Jr. and brazenly fired shots at Arizona Democratic Congresswoman Gabby Gifford, putting her in a coma and killing six innocent bystanders, publically remarking that you want to kill a member of Congress, no matter how inadvertently hilarious the analogy, is really, really not cool.
I’m referring of course to Scott Boston, the deranged Tea Party Express dude who basically called for the killing of Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill at a TPE event at which McCaskill’s Republican challenger, Sarah Steelman (R), was in attendance.
Not surprisingly, Brietbart spawn and pretend journalist, Dana Loesch of CNN, whose only credentials appear to be having an active Twitter account, defended Boston’s remarks. After all, it’s the Christian God-given constitutional right of every freedumb-fighting patriot to freely threaten the life of a sitting politician with whom you disagree and ”don’t tread on me” if you think different. But what this Anne Coulter in-training pretend journalist neglected to mention in her defense of Scott Boston was that she co-founded a conservative activist group with questionable objectives with him.
During this screeching shill’s incoherent defense of Boston in one of her articles for Big Government, Loesch reported that the FBI questioned Boston about his remarks at his home in St. Louis. But conspicuously absent from her rambling entry was that Loesch and Boston helped to found the Gateway Grassroots Initiative, which is dedicated to, “advancing conservatism at the national, state, and local levels,” according to Media Matters. Also, it seems that Boston co-authored a post promoting the Gateway Grassroots Initiative at Breitbart.com. One superficial glance at the group and its so-called, “advancement of conservative principles” and what you see is yet another lunatic fringe group of stupid, angry white men who take their cues from Ted Nugent and Somalian warlords.
If CNN has any intention of not becoming Fox News’ leftover trash, then they would do the noble thing and send Dana Loesch packing or confine her to the same padded cell as CNN also-ran Glenn Beck. Feel free to contact CNN here and send them your thoughts on why Loesch is bad for their network and any journalistic endeavor in general.
