CNN’s Dana Loesch Spews Insults at Critics of Her Comments Supporting Desecrating Corpses

Help! I’m being persecuted by ‘pony-tailed academics!’

Andrew Breitbart crony and CNN commentator Dana Loesch defends herself against criticism of her comments supporting desecrating corpses by spewing insults at her critics and calling it “Correcting the Progressive Spin on My Defense of the Marines.”

Because in Loesch’s twisted mind, only a “progressive” could possibly be appalled at US Marines urinating on dead bodies.

Yesterday on my radio show I discussed the topic of the Marines videotaping themselves urinating on dead Taliban fighters.

That’s only the first sentence, and she’s already trying to minimize what she said; in fact, she didn’t just “discuss the topic,” she praised the Marines and said she would “drop trou” and do the same thing herself.

For the record, here are Loesch’s actual words:

“Now we have a bunch of progressives that are talking smack about our military because there were marines caught urinating on corpses, Taliban corpses,” Loesch said during her radio program on FM News Talk 97.1. “Can someone explain to me if there’s supposed to be a scandal that someone pees on the corpse of a Taliban fighter? Someone who, as part of an organization, murdered over 3,000 Americans? I’d drop trou and do it too. That’s me though. I want a million cool points for these guys. Is that harsh to say? Come on people, this is a war. What do people think this is?”

The rest of today’s defensive rant is so predictable I could probably write it myself; she blames everything on progressives, liberals, and “pony-tailed academics,” and casts herself as a heroine of the average American.

It’s absurd to desecrate corpses but it’s not wrong to hate terrorists who are trying to kill our troops–and us. And I’m not in uniform–so I am free to express what a lot of Americans feel about the controversy, even if it makes some pony-tailed academics feel uncomfortable.

“Absurd” is the strongest word she can find for desecrating corpses?

If you actually read her vitriolic persecution fantasy, you’ll discover that she never actually defends what she said. (Probably because she can’t.) The entire article consists of nothing but attacks on her critics.

In contrast, here’s an opinion from someone who has actually served in the military (unlike Ms Loesch): Alex Lemons, a Marine sergeant who was a scout sniper in Iraq.

If you aren’t surprised and disgusted by this as a combatant, veteran or as a civilian whose country has been at war for a decade, then maybe you need to take a look in the mirror. Have you become this callous?

[…]

The Marine Corps doesn’t teach anyone to do this.

Choices were made and they were not good ones. This is what maintains our moral high ground. It doesn’t matter if the Taliban cut heads off and videotape them.

The whole point, as I was told since 2001, was not to become like them, or to be comparable to them.
