Dana and Chris Loesch Defend Akin’s ‘Legitimate Rape’ Comments
Proving that there is nothing too dumb to defend for a member of the Breitbart Brigade, former tea partier, receiver of massive government subsidies, and conservative speaker Chris Loesch took to Twitter to claim that Todd Akin’s absurd comments about rape were “medically correct.”
In case you’ve been temporarily living under a rock, here’s what Akin said again:
‘First of all, from what I understand from doctors [pregnancy from rape] is really rare,’ Akin told KTVI-TV in an interview posted Sunday. ‘If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.’
Akin later claimed (implausibly) that he “misspoke.” But Chris Loesch didn’t think he misspoke. Chris Loesch thought Akin proved how “brilliant” he was.
A small sample of teh crazy from Loesch’s Twitter feed:
They are slamming an anti-abortion guy for stating a medical fact to support his stance? Oh wait, they are really just twisting his words.
Conservatives should know better than to buy leftist spin. I’m shocked at what I’m seeing. Context people!
@sevenlayercake what he said was medically correct. And nobody has the full video, he gets cut off. Sorry, don’t believe the spin.
@sevenlayercake I can buy a poor choice of words case. The guy is deeply caring & quite brilliant though. Deserves benefit of the doubt.
@jennyjinx So you don’t know that a woman’s body can self terminate a pregnancy due to physical or emotional stress? It is defense.
There’s plenty more where that came from.
I guess we should expect Liberty University to award Loesch with an honorary Ph.D. in Biology any day now.
