Dana Loesch editor-in-chief of Big Journalism, the conservative group blogs created by the late Andrew Breitbart and who in February 2011 was hired by CNN as a political pundit to cover the 2012 elections from the Tea Party point of view took to Twitter to defend 14 year old Caiden Cowger a teen from Buckhannon, WV who’s tea party parents have too much time, money and lack of parenting skills and allows him to run a “conservative” website and “talk radio” show that emulates Andrew Brietbart and says that President Obama “is making kids gay.”
Cowger said that he knows at least 30 teenagers in his county who are gay:
“It is sickening. It sickens me. I knew them when they were in the beginning of middle school, and you know what? They were not homosexuals. They just decided all of a sudden, I think I’m going to be gay. Why they are becoming homosexuals, why they are becoming gay, is because they are being encouraged by it.
President Obama, Vice President Biden, is making kids gay, They are encouraging kids to think, well, you know what, they’re talking about being a homosexual, and they’re saying there’s nothing wrong with being gay, so you know what, I think I might try that out for a little bit. That’s what’s going on.”
Of course many people became upset by this 14 year old BIT (Bigot In Training) ramblings. His YouTube video was removed for hate speech and of course since it Crowger put it out in a public venue he received many responses that were less than supportive of his
So Loesch went to Twitter to defend Cowger
“Another conservative teen under attack for being … a conservative teen,” she wrote. “Remember when adults praised civic participation?”
Later she added, “Love the NOH8 bullies. Love the irony of that statement even more.”
So Dana Loesch thinks spreading homophobic hate is a “civic participation”?
Well we can’t say for sure because Loesch admitted later that “I don’t listen to his radio show or know his remarks.” So in other words, she hadn’t heard what Cowger said before defending him and saying he deserved praise for KKK “civic participation.”
You know freedom of speech has its limits. Screaming “FIRE!” in a crowded movie theater is one. Spewing ate speech is another. What this kid was spouting was hate speech, plain and simple and he’s getting called out and recognized as the repugnant little piece of trash that his parents have raised.
Loesch on the other hands obviously suffers from an extreme case of “Coulter Envy” and just shrills off the GOP talking points and makes up facts.
As for CNN hiring this harpie as a political pundit, Perhaps they need to get an HR Department that does better educational background checks on employees because if they did they would discover that Loesch who attended St. Louis Community College and then the third rate Webster University, dropped out before actually earning her journalism degree.
And in this case you can say that her roots are definitely showing.
