During the “cool points” segment of her Friday radio show my friend and editor at Big Journalism, Dana Loesch commented on the controversy surrounding the video of some American Soldiers apparently urinating on dead Taliban terrorists.
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 was — 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?
In true Dana “snarky take no prisoners” fashion she was trying to point out the absurdity of doing what the mainstream media and progressive organizations were doing. Giving this incident more attention and making it bigger than it deserves. Liberals and progressives were using this video to make our entire military look bad.
Loesch was saying the same thing as Lt. Colonel (ret.) Rep Allen West said about the incident;
“I do not recall any self-righteous indignation when our Delta snipers Shugart and Gordon had their bodies dragged through Mogadishu. Neither do I recall media outrage and condemnation of our Blackwater security contractors being killed, their bodies burned, and hung from a bridge in Fallujah.
“All these over-emotional pundits and armchair quarterbacks need to chill. Does anyone remember the two Soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division who were beheaded and gutted in Iraq?
“The Marines were wrong. Give them a maximum punishment under field grade level Article 15 (non-judicial punishment), place a General Officer level letter of reprimand in their personnel file, and have them in full dress uniform stand before their Battalion, each personally apologize to God, Country, and Corps videotaped and conclude by singing the full US Marine Corps Hymn without a teleprompter.
“As for everyone else, unless you have been shot at by the Taliban, shut your mouth, war is hell.”
As one might have expected Media Matters for America the progressive media watch dog formed by Center for American Progress, has been all over Loesch saying that her comments were meant to show support for the Marines action rather than to lampoon the progressive reaction to the incident.
Interestingly, Media Matters defends terrorist groups, the Soros-funded group and its parent organization Center for American Progress continues to urinate all over American Citizens of the Jewish Faith.
HBO “Real Time” host Bill Maher broke with many of his ideological compatriots and declared on his Friday program that the incident was of relatively minor importance. Maher said it was “distasteful,” but not one of the worst things the federal government has been a part of.
“Urination to me is something that should happen in the privacy of R. Kelly’s home,” Maher joked.
“If they were real Taliban, if they were people who burned down girls’ schools, and, you know, do honor rapes and throw acid in people’s faces, I’m not that upset about pissing on them,” he said.

In the e-mail that the Post obtained exclusively from the CAP account of Faiz Shakir, who serves as editor-in-chief of the ThinkProgress.org website and is a vice president at CAP, he wrote, “Yes, I agree ‘Israel Firster’ is terrible, anti-Semitic language. And that’s why that language no longer exists on Zaid’s personal twitter feed, because he also knows and understands the implications.”
Zaid Jilani wrote on his Twitter account, where he identifies himself as a “Reporter-Blogger for ThinkProgress,” that “…Obama is still beloved by Israel-firsters and getting lots of their $$.”
…In a lengthy article on Friday on the Daily Beast news website, Ken Gude, the managing director of CAP’s National Security and International Policy Program, denied any anti-Semitism or anti-Israelism at CAP. He told the Daily Beast that the allegations were “wildly unfair” and “flatly untrue.”
The Post sent an e-mail to Gude on Friday citing the quote in question from the email that had been sent from Shakir’s account. He did not respond to the Post e-mail or to a follow-up telephone query.
Critics accuse CAP of failing to combat rising anti-Israel sentiment among a group of bloggers who write about the Middle East and have created an anti-Jewish state environment at the mainstream policy organization. The e-mail conceding anti-Semitism at ThinkProgress underscores an internal rift at the think tank.
CAP bloggers have attacked their critics. The ThinkProgress blogger Ben Armbruster wrote an article last month titled “The Secret, Coordinated Effort To Smear ThinkProgress As Anti-Semitic And Anti-Israel.”
Media Matters for America’s Senior Fellow MJ Rosenberg has become infamous for accusing any American Jews who support Israel of dual loyalty (he too calls them Israel-firsters), he also has claimed the evil Israel lobby” controls both the media and the U.S. foreign policy. He also uses the term neo-con in a similar fashion to another Jew-Hater Pat Buchanan– as a slang pejorative term for Jews who are politically conservative. Rosenberg is not the only Jew-Basher at Media Matters just the most vocal.
So the lesson we learn from MMFA peeing on terrorists bad–peeing on Americans who are Jewish…well that’s OK.
Understand, their protest has nothing to do with what was said, and everything about the fact that Dana Loesch said it. Media Matters has decided to use their misinterpretation of Loesch’s comments as an opportunity to remove one more conservative voice from the news.
Please take the time to go to the Network’s comments section and tell them you understand exactly what Loesch meant and you see through MMFA’s disingenuous complaints to their network.
