On Tuesday’s edition of KFTK 97.1’s The Dana Show, notorious Islamophobe Dana Loesch revived the false and widely debunked smear (that her current employer CNN debunked) that “President Barack Obama attended a ‘madrassa’ in Indonesia.”

In her September 2010 column on her radio show’s page on WordPress, Loesch baselessly accused “all Muslims as violent terrorists.”


Who burned the Koran that resulted in the murder of ten Christian missionaries last month

Or the murder of CIA agents earlier this year

?


Or the USS Cole?
Or the countless airplane hijackings, discotheque bombings, etc., etc., etc. 

Obama says that “As Americans, we will not or ever be at war with Islam.” 

How many thousands of people must be murdered by Islam before he stops saying such?
Where did this nation’s balls go?


No, Ms. Loesch, almost all the Muslims are peaceful and non-violent, and it’s only the radical fundamentalist Islam types such as the Wahhabis and Al-Qaeda that do the terrorist activities, which are disavowed by the mainstream Islamic community.

NUGENT: But again my frustration and my often times angry review of what the liberal Democrats have always done to destroy everything they touch, including Wendy Davis a puppet of Nancy “You don’t need to read this, you need to sign it to find out what’s in it” Pelosi and of course our favorite Attorney General Eric “Gunrunning” Holder and of course our favorite commander-in-chief, the scam artist, “You can keep your doctor, period,” etcetera, etcetera.

[…]

NUGENT: Everybody I know who is in the asset of American — of America — is proud, very proud to be job locked. We’re locked in our dedication to be productive Americans. Wendy Davis and all the liberal Democrats could not represent a more anti-Texas, anti-freedom, anti-rugged individual, anti-entrepreneurial, anti-productive, anti-American agenda. We will not let Wendy Davis become the governor of Texas, and just recently — I think it is time to celebrate on The Dana Show and I know you will join me as I dance — that Greg Abbott experienced an 11 percent increase in his gap over Wendy Davis, which on my Facebook the millions of people attribute to the “Ted Factor.” So I’m on course, history will show me as being in the asset column. History will show that the liberal Democrats were in the liability column, and I know that will be true.

Today in Dana Loesch stupidity: she callously mocks fast food protesters who are fighting for a fairer minimum wage and the right to unionize without intimidation from overzealous bosses. This isn’t surprising, given her long history of attacks on workers’ rights and unions.


Joe.My.God:

Some restaurant workers are striking today for a liveable wage and teabaggers are responding at the Twitter hashtag #EatFast where they are posting mocking photos of themselves gorging on fast food.

Catherine Ruetschlin and Amy Traub from Demos.org have the facts about why minimum wage increases will HELP fast food workers:

1. IT WOULD CREATE JOBS.Low wages are holding back economic growth, but a raise for our country’s lowest paid workers would put money in the pockets of those most likely to spend it, generating much-needed consumer demand and contributing to economic growth across industries. That translates to higher GDP and new hiring in the labor market.
2. IT WOULD REDUCE POVERTY.
More than ten million Americans—and the family members they support—live beneath the poverty line even though they have jobs. With a median wage of $8.85, a fast food cook in a family of three lives in poverty even if she never takes a day off. Raising wages in the fast food industry could improve living standards for millions of hard working people.
3. COMPANIES CAN AFFORD IT.
With annual profits in the billions, the largest fast food companies could raise wages for their entire workforce and shareholders would still see a return. In fact, many of these employers already do pay higher wages to workers in other countries without wrecking their bottom lines.
5. COMPANIES THAT INVEST IN THEIR WORKERS THRIVE.
Low-wage jobs are a business choice, but some employers take the high road offering fair wages, hours, and benefits. This investment in the workforce pays off in lower turnover and higher worker productivity, generating good service to customers and a solid bottom line.
8. IT WOULD PUSH UP WAGES FOR OTHER UNDERPAID WORKERS.
Increasing the standard for decent pay in fast food could be a boon to low-wage workers across industries. The ripple effects start with increased consumer demand and economic growth, and create pressure in the labor market to raise wages in other low-pay positions. Contrary to popular myth, the vast majority of those affected by a raise at the bottom are working adults, struggling to make ends meet for themselves and their families. Even in fast food, most workers are 21 or older and have at least a high school degree. Raising wages in fast food could impact living standards for millions of American workers and the families that depend on them.

Her regular fill-in host for The Dana Show and guest Tony Katz falsely accuses unions of “bullying fast food workers.”

Fast food workers are planning a strike to force employers to pay them $15 per hour. This Thursday, in over 100 cities across the nation, Big Labor is coordinating with “grassroots” activists to pressure these employers to pay a “living wage.” From all the press, you’d think the push toward higher wages was something noble. But, this is Big Labor. And no one will bully, threaten or intimidate to steal your hard earned money more than Big Labor. The group Fast Food Forward, one of the organizations in sync with Big Labor to shame fast food restaurants into extinction, states their purpose:

In America, people who work hard should be able to afford basic necessities like groceries, rent, childcare and transportation.

While fast food corporations reap the benefits of record profits, workers are barely getting by — many are forced to be on public assistance despite having a job.

Raising pay for fast food workers will benefit workers and strengthen the overall economy.

It’s not the workers that Big Labor wants to benefit. It’s Big Labor that Big Labor wants to benefit.

[…] 

There is no way to determine a living wage anywhere in America. It’s a lie, and so is the idea that groups like Fast Food Forward and Big Labor care about fast food employees. Listen up, fast food workers, because you’re being used! Not by McDonald’s or Wendy’s or Chick-Fil-A, but by Big Labor and the political candidates (ideology) they support. BIg Labor wants you to unionize because Big Labor wants you to pay union dues.
They want your money, and they don’t give a good holy damn about you!


More lies from Loesch acolyte Katz.

When Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin made the idiotic suggestion that “women who are ‘legitimately raped’ don’t get pregnant” today on KTVI’s The Jaco Report with Charles Jaco, KFTK radio host and Akin shill Dana Loesch defended Akin’s offensive remarks, typical for an anti-choicer.

Here are her most egregiously stupid tweets:

Seems to me like Akin was trying to fit medical explanation into a soundbite. Not the best statement, but some are stretching it majorly.

Akin failed a soundbite. Wah. Bloomberg and Harkin talked about controlling women’s bodies and you want to act offended?

Again, the people who denied documented Occupy rapes are mad over Akin’s rape comment.

Where were all these people when so many Dems were ignoring or outright denying documented Occupy rapes?
— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) August 19, 2012

Akin should clarify whether he meant rapes that occurred or those falsely accused.
— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) August 19, 2012

Why did the left get so mad when I asked them to condemn OWS rapes (actual rapes, not comments) and said Akin should clarify silly speech?
— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) August 19, 2012

Wow, I stirred up a hornet’s nest asking for the libs outraged over Akin comment to condemn documented real OWS rapes.

On last Friday’s edition of The Dana Show, "Josie" tells her side of the story of how Michael Brown got shot by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson, and of course, her story is full of lies, as she DEFENDED Officer Wilson’s decision to shoot Brown.


TheBlaze (where Loesch is employed at):

The alleged friend of Wilson continued: “So he goes in reverse back to them, tries to get out of his car. They slam his door shut violently. I think he said Michael did. And, then he opened the car again, you know, he tried to get out. He stands up. And then Michael just bum-rushes him and shoves him back into his car, punches him in the face and then, of course, Darren grabs for his gun. Michael grabbed for the gun. At one point, he got the gun entirely turned against his hip. And he shoves it away, and the gun goes off.” 
The caller went on to claim that Brown then ran from the officer, making it about 35 feet away before Wilson got up and ordered the suspect to “freeze.”
“Michael and his friend turn around. And Michael taunts him… And then all the sudden he just started bumrushing him. He just started coming at him full speed. And, so he just started shooting. And, he just kept coming. And, so he really thinks he was on something,” she concluded. “The final shot was in the forehead, and then he fell about two or three feet in front of the officer.”


“Josie” was indeed lying out of her ass, as is anyone who sticks up for murdering Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson.

Kaili Joy Gray at Wonkette for the REAL truth about “Josie”:

 We can all go home now, because Tucker Carlson’s cesspool of journamalism has a hot scoop that PROVES Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson is definitely not guilty of murdering unarmed teen Michael Brown.


Wilson’s claims match a woman who called herself “Josie” who called into Dana Loesch’s radio show on Friday. CNN confirmed with police officials that what Josie told Loesch matches what Wilson says happened during his encounter with Brown.

According to Josie, Wilson, a six-year police veteran, claims Brown assaulted and then “bum rushed” him during their encounter on August 9.

Hang tight, we need to bust out some charts and graphs and an abacus to follow this logic. Some lady named “Josie” — oh, right, “Josie,” she knows everything! — called Dana Loesch’s radio show to tell her version of Officer Wilson’s version of the events that occurred on the day Officer Wilson killed Michael Brown. Was “Josie” there? No, but she heard it from a very good, very unbiased source who was also not there: Mrs. Officer Wilson! And just in case you are questioning whether “Josie” really is a friend of a friend of a friend who knows a guy who knows a thing, she called Loesch’s programming director back after dropping this hot scoop to insist “that her relationship to the named officer is legitimate.” That definitely seals it. You know “Josie” would never lie about something like that.
At least Loesch had the semi-decency to admit she had not vetted “Josie” and could not yet confirm whether her story of Mrs. Wilson’s story of Officer Wilson’s story is in any way accurate. The Daily Caller felt no such journalistic obligation. And in case the air-tight report from “Josie” doesn’t convince you, the Daily Caller also has a tweet that DEFINITELY proves … something.

CNN’s Dana Loesch on KFTK’s The Dana Show: “Union Bosses Are The Modern Day Plantation Owners“

Anti-union shill Dana Loesch lying as usual. Union bosses are NOT the “Modern-day Plantation Owners,” despite Loesch wrongly stating it as such. 

Chris Loesch, the husband of CNN contributor Dana Loesch, is a Twitter victim. That much is certain. The question is whether his tormentors are a nefarious horde of liberal tweeters or a benevolent algorithm that snared him accidentally.

Here’s what we know: Rebecca Hains, an assistant professor of communications at Salem State University in Massachusetts, tweeted a link at 5:10 p.m. ET on Sunday evening to an account of a Twitter dustup she had with Dana Loesch, a conservative commentator. The two had mixed it up over the politics of birth control, and Hains accused Loesch of distorting facts and sensationalizing her comments.

Dana Loesch says she regularly receives hate mail, and usually her husband ignores it. This time he decided to respond. “When people are really rude, you can only look the other way so many times,” he told Yahoo News. “You need to sometimes remind them people are watching.”

Chris Loesch posted nearly 50 tweets in the next 45 minutes, retweeting messages from supporters and responding to others who he felt were maligning his wife. Around 9 p.m. on Sunday, Twitter suspended his account.

Several conservative sites arrived at the conclusion that Chris Loesch was the target of a coordinated campaign of liberals who reported his account as abusive. “He was apparently targeted by leftist userswho utilized the ‘Block & Report Spam’ function to trigger the social media account’s automatic spam algorithm,” one Washington Times blogger wrote. Human Events, a less obliquely conservative outlet, called the campaign the work of “digital brown shirt gangs that make coordinated attacks to silence conservative voices by abusing Twitter’s spam flagging feature.” Supporters started a #FreeChrisLoesch hashtag. After he was briefly reinstated later that night and then summarily uninstated, the tag was appended to #FreeChrisLoeschAgain.

Hains, the user whose account of her argument with Dana Loesch sparked the mix up, connected Yahoo News with several users who say they routinely report misbehaving Twitter users as abusive. “I absolutely do advise people who are harassed by these hateful idiots to use block and report,” a man named Charles Johnson responded in a tweet. There is no hard evidence, however, that such efforts alone can get a legitimate user removed if he or she is not actually being abusive.

Twitter has about 900 employees and 140 million active users, so like many companies with huge numbers of users they rely on algorithms to detect anomalous behavior. These secret algorithms are incredibly sophisticated in order to prevent people from cheating them, and they’re generally very effective. A recent Berkeley study that deconstructed the algorithm found a fairly low degree of error in the site’s detection system for malicious spammers.

More likely, Chris Loesch triggered a red flag at the Twitter headquarters by responding to well-wishers too zealously after rising to his wife’s defense. Dana Loesch posted a screenshot of the warning page her husband received for his first suspension, which states that he was cut off for “sending multiple unsolicited mentions to other users.” His rapid-fire retweeting of others in the immediate aftermath of his spat with Daniel Barber could well meet that definition.

Still, several outlets accept the idea that leftist thought police are systematically purging Twitter of conservative voices. The National Review Online writes that, “in recent days, left-wing users in America have taken to suppressing conservative accounts on Twitter. They have used Twitter’s anti-spam measures to shut down conservative voices by flagging their accounts en masse as spam.” But it is unlikely that Chris Loesch triggered a conspiracy. He just tweeted too much.

Chris Loesch is a moron, just like his far more famous wife Dana is.

(via Nugent on KFTK’s The Dana Show: “ I Will Stand By“ Inflammatory Attack On Obama Administration)

National Rifle Association board member and Washington Times columnist Ted Nugent refused to back down from his recent inflammatory comments about the Obama administration in a radio interview with CNN contributor Dana Loesch on The Dana Show. Nugent told Loesch that “I will stand by my speech” and said that he was being attacked with the “Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals playbook.”

Speaking at the NRA’s annual meeting Nugent accused President Obama of having a “vile, evil America-hating administration” that is “wiping its ass with the Constitution.” He went on to tell a crowd that “We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November” and said that “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.” The Secret Service is reportedly reviewing Nugent’s comments.

Nugent insisted to Loesch that his message had been “100 percent positive,” and Loesch agreed that he was being used as a “scapegoat” by the Obama administration.

Later in the interview, Nugent added more derogatory comments about Democrats. He described Democratic chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz as a “brain-dead, soulless, heartless idiot,” and said House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi was a “sub-human scoundrel.”

These aren’t the first inflammatory remarks from Nugent.

  • Nugent said Obama was “a piece of shit” who should “suck on my machine gun.”
  • Nugent said the Muslim community is “rude and stupid.”
  • Nugent described Hillary Clinton as a “toxic cunt” and a “two-bit whore for Fidel Castro.”
  • Nugent said anyone who says “gun control” should be put in jail.
  • Nugent described the Democratic Party as a “modern-day slave master” to the poor and unemployed.

Notorious discredited hack James O’Keefe visited KFTK’s The Dana Show with O’Keefe apologist Dana Loesch to talk about his latest dud of a video.  Of course Loesch will praise any and all efforts from him.

Key Points: 

  • Loesch falsely claimed that “he denies the existence of widespread ‘voter fraud.’” (approx 1:20)
  • O’Keefe says that the “‘mainstream media’ will never love us.” (approx. 2:20)
  • Loesch falsely states that “the ‘mainstream media’ and the Democrats’ narratives claim that no voter fraud exists, but it’s been proven wrong by you, O’Keefe.” (approx. 3:10)
  • O’Keefe: “my exposés have been effective to the point that state legislatures are passing voter ID laws.” (approx. 4:00)
  • O’Keefe blames the “establishment for covering up the problems.” (approx. 4:40)
  • Loesch and O’Keefe bash Sharpton and the Dems for telling the truth about “voter ID” laws. (approx. 5:50)
  • Loesch baselessly accuses “Eric Holder and the DOJ of refusing to uphold voter integrity.” (approx. 7:00)
  • Loesch falsely peddles the non-truth that “Voter IDs help voters, not suppress the voters.” (approx. 7:30)
  • O’Keefe: “I think the people will stand behind us on this one.” (approx. 8:28)
  • Loesch: “If the DOJ, Eric Holder, and the Democrats will go after O’Keefe, then wouldn’t it compromise their inability to do their jobs.” (approx. 9:10)
  • Loesch: “O’Keefe scored a victory right out of the gate with this.” Nope, he LOST right out of the gate, as usual. (approx. 10:40)

From the 04.09.2012 edition of KFTK’s The Dana Show:


The real Eric Holder is right, and people like O’Keefe and Loesch are lying liars.

 

 

Media Matters for America also calls out O’Keefe’s deception tactics calls out O’Keefe’s deception tactics:

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has unveiled the latest chapter in its ongoing “voter fraud investigation”: a video that purports to show a young man nearly obtaining the ballot of Attorney General Eric Holder. Like O’Keefe’s past “voter fraud” videos, however, this video fails to show actual voter fraud being committed, and it doesn’t prove the existence of a widespread conspiracy to throw an election. That’s because both are extremely rare. 


The video shows the man entering a polling place in Washington, D.C., then cuts to the man asking a poll worker, “Do you have an Eric Holder?” After the O’Keefe associate confirms Holder’s address, which is censored, the poll worker offers him the voter roll and says, “Please sign your name there.” The fake Eric Holder then says he left his ID in the car and leaves. 

This video doesn’t prove any of these things. What it shows is a man coming close to committing a serious crime. But even if the man had fraudulently cast a vote under Eric Holder’s name, D.C. and federal laws provide a number of protections against fraudulent votes. 

First of all, if the imposter had fraudulently cast Holder’s ballot, and the real Eric Holder then had shown up to vote and been told his name was already crossed off the list, the real Holder almost certainly could have still voted. Under the Help America Vote Act of 2002, any voter who is told by an “election official” that he or she is “not eligible to vote” must be allowed to “cast a provisional ballot.” 

In spite of all this evidence, however, right-wing media routinely drum up phony or baseless cases of voter fraud, which they then use to rally support for restrictive voter ID laws.

Word running strong in STL media mills is that KDNL-Channel 30 will bring back its nightly news this spring — with Jamie Allman as the anchor.

KDNL, which has been without its own newscasts since 2001, plans to have reports at 5 p.m. and 10 p.m., a source close to the situation said.

Allman, now the morning-drive radio host on conservative FM NewsTalk 97.1, worked for KMOV-Channel 4 as a reporter from 1990 to 2004. He could not be reached for comment.

Steve Church, KDNL’s executive producer, would only say that station officials are interested in producing and airing their own news reports.

KDNL, which came on the air in STL in 1969, produced its own newscasts from 1994 until October 2001. In 2011, KSDK began producing news for the station, but that arrangement ended last month.

KDNL will be back with its own in-house produced news for the 1st time since 2001, likely with a right-wing flair. 
That’s on the basis that KFTK morning host and former KMOV reporter Jamie Allman will be rumored to be the anchor and that KDNL’s parent company (Sinclair Broadcast Group) has a well-known conservative bias, which includes airing Armstrong Williams’ program The Right Side and the Mark Hyman commentaries.
