Wingnut Fight! Dana Loesch Sues #Breitbart.com

How could a love so right go so wrong?

Tonight we have word of big trouble on the far right, as the Breitbrats begin fighting in earnest over the empire that Breitbart built: Talk Radio Host Dana Loesch Files Suit in St. Louis Against Breitbart.com.

I’ve been wondering why Loesch’s wingnut screeds haven’t been appearing there lately — now we know.

Conservative talk radio host and commentator Dana Loesch sued the owner of the conservative website breitbart.com Friday, claiming that although her relationship with the news and opinion aggregating website had gone “tragically awry,” Breibart.cοm LLC refused to let her work for the company or anyone else, forcing her into “indentured servitude in limbo.”

The suit, filed in U.S. District Court here, seeks at least $75,000 in damages, as well as a judge’s declaration that her contract had expired.

The suit says that difficulties managing the Breitbart “media ‘empire’” or ideological conflicts or both had spiked the working relationship, creating a “increasingly hostile” work environment. When Loesch tried to terminate her work agreement in September, Breitbart refused and extended the agreement by a year, the suit says.

Ludicrous Breitbart Post of the Day: Politico’s ‘Hitler Photo’

Extra-stupid
Wingnuts • Views: 19,600

breitbart.com editor John Nolte is possibly the most dishonest writer at that right wing hate site, and that’s really saying something. Today he’s busily pumping out pro-gun propaganda, and his latest is a classic in the genre of stupid: POLITICO RUNS ‘HITLER PHOTO’ OF NRA CHIEF!

The above is the lead photo and story on Politico right now.

Although there were dozens of cameras at today’s press conference, in order to post their “Hitler pose,” Politico had to grab a photo that wasn’t even taken at today’s event.

Our media’s filled with horrible people, isn’t it?

Of course, it’s obvious that LaPierre’s raised fist is nothing like a Nazi salute, which is performed with an open hand and a straight arm. But Nolte knows this; he’s just trying to rile up the knuckle-draggers who consume his swill, and doesn’t care that anyone with at least two functioning brain cells can see right through the BS.

As for “horrible people,” remember that John Nolte is the breitbart.com editor who has publicly called for teachers to be “murdered:”

NRA Press Conference Summed Up: More Guns

No surprises
US News • Views: 20,660

The Washington Post has a transcript of today’s NRA press conference, and I hope you’re not too surprised to learn that their idea of “meaningful contributions” boils down to two simple words: More guns.

The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.

Wayne LaPierre, the conspiracy-minded leader of the NRA, went on to propose that we build a “database of the mentally ill,” which is a very sick irony coming from a man who absolutely rejects any such database for gun owners.

Other “solutions” offered by the NRA in this ludicrous press conference: armed guards in every school, and banning video games.

Other “anything but guns” excuses offered by the NRA: movies, music videos, video games, President Obama, hurricanes, the media, gun-free zones, and celebrities.

Former RNC chairman Michael Steele thought this press conference was “very haunting and very disturbing,” and that pretty much sums it up.
