Conservative columnist Dana Loesch is much admired on the right for her wit and intellect, as well as her willingness to spar with liberals.
Watch the fireworks here.
(Below is an edited transcript – hitting the higlights)
JESSICA ERLICH: What I find sad and disturbing is that really what you have here are two attention-seeking reality television wannabe appearing brothers who are political activists who have an extreme agenda, and are trying to cloak it in this, sort of, you know, religious freedom characterization, and using that as a way to get, you know, their own business and drive that. And I find that very disturbing.
FOX NEWS’ MARTHA MACCALLUM: Saying that they had their political beliefs, they had their religious beliefs, and, you know, people can read them and take a look at them. They might find them offensive or they may not. But at what point do you sort of cross the line where you say, ‘What I think in private should not really be part of the business transactions that I’m part of?’ Dana?
DANA LOESCH: Well, I have to jump into Jessica’s remark, I wonder if she finds it disturbing and attention-seeking that the brothers were actually committed still to the six families whose homes they were flipping for this television show. They had already started production and when HGTV pulled it, the brothers continued on their time and on their own dime, I might add, to continue their promise and fulfill what they said they were going to do with these families. So, if we’re going to have a conversation…
LOESCH: Well, you just said that you found it disturbing. I just don’t understand the anti-Christian bigotry. I mean the world is big enough for all of us, don’t you think?
ERLICH: It’s, it is absolute, that’s what, what you just said encapsulates my argument completely.
LOESCH: How so?
ERLICH: There is no anti-Christian bigotry here. They have cloaked their political views, which are radical…[crosstalk] these are not Christian views.
ERLICH: They are anti-abortion and anti-homosexuality and those are their positions. Those are not the positions of most Christians, and for you to say that is outrageous. (Author’s Note – “Um. What? Most Christians are pro-life and against gay marriage… what is she talking about?)
LOESCH: How does that not make you anti-Christian, using your logic, Jessica? How is it that they are anti-homosexual, but you’re not anti-Christian?
LOESCH: If we’re going to have a theological discussion, let’s start with your name calling, your smearing of these brothers just because you’re an anti-Christian bigot!
Loesch is completely correct here – and maybe this is the tact we need to take with liberals from here on out. If we are bigots for our opposition to gay marriage or any other hosts of issues, then they too must be bigots for their opposition to our beliefs! I would further propose that from now on we refer to liberals as anti-Christian BIGOTS, whenever we discuss their positions on political issues.
Liberals hate us because of what we believe. It’s time we call them out for their hateful bigotry.
